Picture of Forum Comment Sells for 90K on Ebay!
« on: August 06, 2014, 09:00:42 PM »
Thought this might brighten your day. I got a kick out of it. Apparently an anonymous individual took a picture of a forum post about art and sold it for $90,000 on eBay. At this time it's unknown whether the buyer has or will pay.

Check out either of the two item numbers shown in the picture and see what you get.

Are those item numbers or numbers associated with the forum post?

The seller user ID is xhacker02..

And anonymous is a name that an elite group of hackers go by.

"Anonymous" or "Anon" was used by unnamed authors of written works since before the printing press was invented.

This forum is but a canvas, and this post a mere brush stroke.

Quick, someone take a picture of this and post it on eBay.

This is copyrighted, so if it sells, I'll take 50%.   ;)

FYI to those thinking Anonymous = Hackers;

The image comes off 4Chan, an image board/forum (threads must be started with an image and are "simplistic" in design, but replies generally don't need images) where usernames/registration isn't required. Hence, the majority of users are "Anonymous". Leads to a unique culture, although I've not frequented it in years (and never did to the degree that some people do).

"Anonymous", as in the "hackers", are a group of members (who generally only use 1-2 of the boards) that incorporate their "identity" on the image board into their hacking.

All that said, I highly doubt that the high bidder will pay for his "art". Also, who is willing to bet there will be a hundred people trying to duplicate this now?
