Why is the point of view of this article is disputed?
On Sunday August 27, 2006 an attack on Furnet IRC was commenced by a "Corrosive". Half the channels were spammed with "Y HALO THAR, FURFAGS! GUESS WHAT? WE ARE SPAMMING!" while the name kept changing. Several admins and ops were also spammed in PM's. The attack was easily dealt with by changing channel rules to only allow those with registered nicks to speak. Some also limited the number of members per room. If anyone wants to add this to the article, go ahead :)126.96.36.199 20:44, 27 August 2006 (UTC)
- Given the ease with which unregistered IRC nicks can be used and changed, I would hardly think that these actions would be necessarily attributable to Corrosive; without a traceable IP address, there's little evidence of a link (and even that leaves open a lot of interpretation).----DuncanDaHusky(talk) 13:07, 28 August 2006 (UTC)
