very nice to see : )

it may not be too much of a jump from that to a paid advertisement

*that, and other games following suit with real time website/game integration. (you saw it here first)

Now that is dedication to spam!..

They actually downloaded, installed, and propperly configured the game..
Just to have thier name appear on that game's own web-site for
less than 5 minutes.

Kudo's for the work... now go tell all your friends how you made your name
show up, so they can all play too. :D

What's wrong about it? They just advertise themselves failing killing themselves.
Are you going to do some filter about this?

Naw.. it's just a name in a game. It's harmless. The channels they have to
delve thru to put thier name in lights could actually lead to a player or 2 some day :D

I think the real reason behind it is less sinister, they likely just hacked into a temp file on the server where the events are stored and replaced a value in it or some such, I can't imagine anyone taking the time to actually log in to a game to spam...

mind you, I think Peanut MIGHT actually do something like that just for the sake of it ;)
The impossible often has a kind of integrity which the merely improbable lacks.
