The rest of it is just another nail in the coffin in my opinion, as Math has crippled the scene as much if not more than TB because he has made it almost impossible to tell who is right (honest) and who is wrong anymore
Nahhhh.... something good and bad happened here:
The bad - someone wasted a lot of time and effort on false information
The good - the provider of said false information has been exposed as the faker that he is. The next time said dingbat tweets some garbage with a fake png screenshot of some BS it won't have to be front paged and defended by an army of drones (including some mods?? never understood this one).
So I think overall the scene will be better off going forward. Additionally in my humble opinion, I think the scene should operate on a "Working POC or GTFO" approach. Repeatable, demonstrable code/procedures need to be provided or it is just a rumor and should be categorized as such (not front paged or taken as gospel). Just my 2 cents.
