### The P-P-P-Powerbook.

This is a hilarious "scamming the scammer" tale. It's long, but well worth the read.

That's Something Awful, right? I'd love to view their forums, but they're closed to outsiders... ah well.
You're right, that is very funny, and it serves the guy right. Don't mess with forum goons.
You'll all be mine, in the end.

THIS IS FANTASTIC!!!!!!!

Imagine how mad the asshole was when he paid the money--when he planned to steal from some poor guy.

This is absolutely great!!!!

I read the whole thing, laughing my ass off!!!!

I love all the civilian cloak and dagger.

I love it that the scammer gets hosed.

And I really love the P-P-P-P-Powerbook.

Never, ever screw with computer geeks.

Too bad they cannot send his ass to jail.

Perhaps they can figure out who he is and get various ISPs to ban him . . . or somthing like that. . . . [He is a Mac user with no clue what he writes about, as is his custom.--Ed.]

Pretty good. Not laugh-my-ass-off funny, but the photos were damn fine and I loved the cargo ship filled with "bear kidneys from various bears, including (but not limited to) polar, grizzly, brown, Yogi, black, panda, and Care."

Last time I checked, that forum was open to outsiders (read only). Plus I believe it's only $10 to register for life. richardm Posts: 73 Joined: Mon Jun 07, 2004 8:05 am Location: UK You can read the forums for free up to a point. I got to about page 17 in the original thread before it insisted I pay or go elsewhere. I paid. A great read for only$9.99 (and a wasted afternoon!)

Last time I checked, that forum was open to outsiders (read only). Plus I believe it's only $10 to register for life. Grammatron is correct, the$10 is a one-time fee unless you do something stupid & get banned. If you don't want to get banned, be sure to read the rules before you post. There are over 30k registered members and for the most part, the place is free of clownshits.
