    Oh, hai der. You're that one guy who inspired me to do those Fresh Prince of Sonic CD vids. :v:

    Anyway, 5 bucks says Shibby'll try to rejoin, via proxies and get misfitted every time.

    I'm just happy to know that most of the site is working again!

    I remember the name Shibunoa from somewhere before... I dunno, I might be thinking of someone or something else... Ah, oh well. Doesn't matter now!

    being an asshole =P
    He loves trolling. He literally lives doing it. It's almost as if he was addict to it (or maybe he is?). And he has some technical knowledge, which makes things worse. He hacked lots of servers already, this isn't the first time he does it.

    What a retarded kid, glad the most important damage could be recovered.
    Oh man, that's so true! I remember when Sonic Retro repeatedly attacked my site because they wanted to be the only Sonic website in existence!

    Oh wait, that didn't happen (that was only Mustapha) and it's a completely retarded idea, not to mention hypocritical since taking down another website to be "the only one" is exactly what that dumbass tried to do. Who does that idiot think he is, the preachy little Highlander of Sonic?

    The Shibunoa hacker guy is a fucking moran, he struck the site TWICE within 24 hours. I mean, WTF!? I sincerely hope that someone has handed his details over to the cops and he gets what's coming to him. I'm just glad its over.

    Also, Congrats Gerbilsoft, I think you deserve it, man. Good luck with your new position.

    Shibunoa needs to masturbate more if he has to keep his hands busy from hacking sites for retarded reasons.

    This would never have happened on Usenet

    That's not important. At least the Wiki survived more or less intact

    I think I un be having the concussions now, nyea nyea nyeaaaaaaaa...

    Are you going to toss a mention to the whole ordeal with Tristan's yellow journalism as well? Since Xkeeper mentioned it on the temp front page, it seems to merit a spot in the top post.

    Also, congrats on Gerbil getting admin and Jimbo finally getting unbanned. I expect penguins spilling tea will be the norm from here on.

    OK. LET'S DO THIS AGAIN, ffs.

    Also, it was a pleasure keeping the staff amused because I have no technical prowess otherwise. It was a very stressful situation and they all needed some laughs to keep them sane, which TSSZ provided in certain cases. However, they get no credit because I fucking said so. :colbert:

    Well, barely, because all the images got deleted.

    Shibunoa can take a dildo and stick it in his ass.

    Well, I'm very happy to see that a true community effort was set forth to return Retro to its origWAIIIIIT AAAAAA MINUTE!

    So...wait.

    Some of the reporting I did that you're mocking right now on the front page was actually correct for a few fleeting moments, before GS and others via caches and such stepped up?

    None at the moment I'm afraid.
    Shibnoa's (Or however the fuck it should be spelled.) wiki page needs to be updated so we can continue to mock him for the rest of his banned years!!!

    The only question I have is why he did it? I mean its obvious it had something to do with Tweaker and how he runs things here but is there any background explanation as to his motive behind committing the intolerable and fucking retarded act? (Granted I don't have any problem with how Tweaker runs things. I think he should do whatever works for him, which he does.)

    The wiki is still locked. Tweaker did edit his page mentioning that he was banned for the attack before Retro was hit for the 2nd time.
