There is no hacker! Stop spreading this bullcrap in your journals people!!!

Ok, let's start at the beginning.

I've seen hundreds upon hundreds of journals posted on DA lately about some mysterious hacker who is getting into people's profiles and doing insane things.

Here's a copy of one of the journals for your reading pleasure. I'll warn you first, that this is yet another haox journal and you really shouldn't be afraid or even go reposting the bullcrap within. Unless you're trolling and like freaking out the moronic masses. (I admit, that it is quite funny that everyone is falling for this crap hook line and sinker.)

This hacker has been going around making a name for himself on the site. He'll hack into your account, but lay low for at least a week. You never even know he's there until you start seeing pictures of Thomas the Tank Engine saved onto your sta.sh. This will continue for a little while until a journal with the title "It's Too Late" is posted on your profile. The journal will be nothing but the lyrics to "Hungry Like The Wolf" by Duran Duran. Then he will change your password and begin sending notes to your watchers asking them for sexual favors in return for stock in Slim Jims. He will post poorly drawn My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic fan art on your profile, most of which involve Pinkie Pie reciting passages from The Old Testament while wearing various outfits from 1970's Sears catalogs. After five days time he will delete at least 4 of your watchers randomly and tag every single person that YOU watch in almost every post.  Then he will begin to write disturbing letters about President Obama in your journal along with screen-caps from those really weird RockAuto.com commercials. Finally after enough time has passed he will delete all of your content, hack into your bank account, force you to buy a 7-year premium membership, change your username to a variation of OHMYGODLOOKATTHOSESHOESTHEONESWITHELACE, and then post 37 pictures of his oddly misshapen nipples on your account. 


Post this in your journal to let your watchers know that you haven't been hacked and warn them about this rampant hacker! Stand up and fight! Don't let yourself become his latest victim!


There are quite a few smaller variants out there, but this one is the most outrageous one.

Now, I bet you're asking yourself one question .... "How can you be so freaking sure it's not true?!?! OMG!"

Because I see the clues in the journal that point to this being yet another dumbass hoax. I shall go forward to list them below.

Clue Number One: The Variant username they claim the hacker will change your username to is WAAAY TOO LONG! "OHMYGODLOOKATTHOSESHOESTHEONESWITHELACE" is 39 characters long. The maximum allowed for a username is 20! The false username listed is almost twice the allowed number of characters! Use your brains people!!

Clue Number Two: The description of the pranks the hacker supposedly pulls on your account says After five days time he will delete at least 4 of your watchers randomly I don't know if you realize this, but it doesn't mean they'll unwatch people you watch, because the next line is that they'll tag all the people YOU watch. It says that he/she will delete your watchers .... I suppose they mean he'll somehow make them "unwatch" you. But, you can't make someone unwatch someone else unless you're logged into their account and you click that "unwatch" button on your profile. The only thing they could do is block them. Not remove their watch of you. I should know, I looked for that option just in case, and trust me. I didn't find it.

Clue Number Three: You can tell this whole article is a joke just by the sheer madness of crap they claim the hacker will do to your account. Someone had a lot of fun typing this crap up and they were likely (I would be) laughing really hard thinking about all the idiots who would freak out over it.

Clue Number Four: The absolute lack of any real evidence! This is key here people. If they can't link to/list names of people who have been effected by this and include how the hacker is getting into the accounts, then its likely A HOAX!! Stop falling for it!

Clue Number Five: By-far the biggest clue there is. If Hackers and running rampant all over DeviantArt then the staff would be posting journals and warnings all about this. But, they're completely silent on this issue because it is by far the biggest bunch of bullcrap floating around on DeviantArt to date. If it was true, you would see journals and warnings all about it from DeviantArt themselves at the very top of your Messages page.

I have used the internet for 17 years now. I have NEEEEEEEEEEEEVEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEER been hacked! Not once! Thank you!

So, stop being stupid. Unless you're spreading this because you think it's funny to mess with the gullible people. Then, by all means, keep at it.

Just make it more convincing.

Luv,
Chrissy.

Chrissy!

...I have been hacked twice (well 3 times) in my time on the internet (about 17 years), and that wasn't fun.

BUT I have to laugh at the eejits that make these journals about the hacking thing. As I have never seen any of them...
