    Welp, this.
    I've really about had it with the hypocrisy of a certain news site.

    When TSSZ News was hacked a few weeks ago, I'll admit I felt a certain schadenfreude over the whole situation—someone who clearly has an axe to grind not only against me but my site was damaged, but ultimately didn't lose anything and was back up in a day. Eh. What I have taken issue with is the threat of "SONIC RETRO DID IT," which we...didn't. We had nothing to do with it, and as I've expressed on a number of occasions, am upset that it happened if only because it allowed TSSZ News to play "poor little victim" over the incident.

    I did not ban TSSZ News as an immediate reaction because I wanted to prove something—it's been WEEKS since this event started, and we have yet to see anything other than empty, vague threats of our culpability. There has been more than enough time to "bring evidence," and none has been brought—because there is none, and the community needs to know that. We have gone to TSSZ News both publicly and privately to try to clear up the fact that we had nothing to do with it and were met with bans.

    However, the site sees fit to continue using us as a new source while blaspheming us. This is completely unacceptable, and as a result I have banned the TSSZ News account from the forums, blocked tssz links from the site, and have blocked the site as a referrer.

    And for the hacker and anyone else who sees fit to harass the site: leave them alone. Don't comment on their stories. Do not taunt in the inevitable "story" that will be posted, despite the irony of their claims that they will abandon their drama angle. Don't give them the time of day. That's what should have been done all along to prevent bullshit like this. This has nothing to do with my personal dislike of their owner because, believe you me, I feel that people who insult the disabled are utter scum. It has far more to do with people trying to have it both ways.
