Not only that, but there is apparently another part of the prank. Recently, due to much grousing from users disgruntled over the fact that rude troll names were appearing on their "friend of" list, Brad made it possible to hide individual names on that list even from yourself, but only by banning those users from commenting in your journal. But lj_serialadder has come up with some way around that, too. I'm not sure what happens if you try to ban the journal, since I haven't tried, but the journal's only post claims that something other than the disappearance of his name will happen. Of course, the post, only a few hours old, already has nearly 8000 comments, mostly from people who are entirely clueless, wondering what the hell is going on. I left a comment of congratulation, myself. I think it was on page 169 or so. Best LJ prank ever. I love foolishness!
Undoubtedly, Brad will soon discover whatever hole in the site's code lj_serialadder used to bring off this prank, and then undo whatever has been done. In fact, I expect the account to be suspended very quickly. But I have been greatly entertained.
I don't know if the real world will be providing me with entertainment today, but there have been some surprisingly gusty winds blowing here, so I have hopes. I'll have to wait until I wake up to find out. By then, I expect that lj_serialadder will be gone. I only hope that the trees are still here.
