    rustyslacker's epic failure
    rustyslacker, a disgruntled global moderator tried to hack the SS Free and hold it hostage and said the only way he would give it back is if he could be an admin. His actions resulted in him getting Brommed and the term "rustyslackered" was coined. rustyslacker also had his old forum shutdown by the United Forum Defense Association, however he moved his forum to a new URL.

    Pretty nice history of everything that happened. I find it interesting that it was originally designed for the military.
