Hello.

I have been residing here for some days now. I do not know as many people here as I should, and I regret that my first interaction here must be to seek advice:

To that end. Is there anybody here who knows me back home? I would like to speak to you.

[OOC: This is a special anonymous post for Friday the 13th. All clickbait leads to a free feartrip, courtesy of Crane's hallucinogenic powers. Players can opt-out by NOT having their characters click the link; they can reply to the ad-bot and chat with Harley or Calendar Man instead. If characters watch the video, they will see someone they know and are afraid of. Please specify who's being hallucinated. Eg. Bel-Shamharoth. Mr. Jefferson. Merle Dixon. Lucifer. And please specify video or headline in headers in either case.

Lastly, it'd be lovely if you could fill these permissions. Thanks!]

[Qubit, of course, knows way better than to click on that bullshit, and normally he'd just ignore it. But normally, there's no spam or ads on this network, and given that you can access it with your brain... you just know some idiot is going to go and give themselves a computer virus. Better to shut this down ASAP.

Of course, since he's not on the network 24/7, this happens after it's already been up for a few hours. What can ya do.

Anyway, whatever's posting these spam links, it suddenly gets inundated with requests from an automated script trying to figure out whose device it's coming from. Get out here, Man Person Behind The Curtain.]

[Source found! It's either a very slow bot (considering it hasn't been posting like 1000 messages per second) or a very bored person. He has a hunch it's the latter, which is pretty much the only reason Harley gets a personal message (and not a hijack attempt).]

Having fun?
