Hah, I'm surprised this made the news. I saw it on GameFAQs but I don't know if it was actually used beyond there.

That topic only lasted for 10 minutes until he was banned anyway.

Extremely hillarious. And the Japanese are just teasing people, too. How did that Newtype interview with the director and Hirano go? "Yes, I'm sure people would want a second season, wouldn't they?"

I happened to be one of those people who fell for the banning part. I should've known when I saw the URL. Other than that, wow, it's made this big of news to get the finger even pointed at ANN.

This link was also posted at http://www.anime-forums.com/index.php and I'm guessing everywhere else too. I didn't fall for the scam as I knew the news was a little too fishy but I did click that script out of curiosity of its true nature. Without further information, there was no way for me to discover the true malicious nature of the link and there is no way I could prepare for it. However, my temporary sacrifice prevented fellow members from the forum from getting banned as I,being a moderator, quarantined the thread.

How on Earth did this get out of hand in the first place? An IP address banning script without any security measures is just asking for trouble.

Is it that difficult to understand? Basically, there is a link that links to "an automated banning script that ANN uses for maintenance purposes." In short, your IP address got banned if you clicked that link and you cannot to access ANN from that IP address until the banlist is cleared.

Well, they're using it to trick people into doing stupid things. The second installment of Haruhi is probably the most anticipated sequel in recent memory, and as such you're going to maximize your amount of suckers by using it.

I imagine the script was something similar to the honeypots employed by spam blacklist providers - you're only supposed to end up there if you're trying to do something you shouldn't.

You have to give whoever it was credit for using the best bait possible. Too bad he had to go and breach the terms of service and get himself banned. What I wonder is how the guy knew about the maintenance script in the first place.

I'm just glad I never saw the link. Had I seen it, I most certainly would've fallen for it. I feel bad for the people who did get themselves accidentally banned, though. They'd have to go to such an extent to get themselves unbanned.

Actually is was only for about 12 hours and Tempest unbanned anyone that was found using that script (that got them banned). So at least it wasn't like for days on end where people were just waiting to see if they were going to be unbanned.
