Either this is more cockamamie birther crap or they got Romeny's tax documents . Nothing else makes sense.

Back in 2007 there was a countdown site for a new Radiohead LP

As a previous poster pointed out, it was attributed to the same two guys

The second link has now been editied to remove the names of these two guys and the claim that they had the biggest Rick Roll of all time. Wonder why it would have been edited on 10-17-12 @ 21:18:56

HeartBurnKid: Just Another OC Homeless Guy: And was quickly taken out of context and spun. Still no reason for me to like Romney, but fair is fair.

Errr... no it wasn't. The only context here is that Mitt thought we wouldn't find out about it.


The context was "a closed fundraiser" and they showed it out of that closed fundraiser, therefore "out of context," you see.

We can use that logic in many ways.

It's also OK to cheat on your wife, so long as it's in secret. If someone gets proof of your cheating and shows your wife, that evidence is out of context.

Ok for anyone new to the thread I'll re-consolidate all the info that was used to trackback and expose these guys.

First everyone did a whois on octsurprise.com, naturally. Of course that is privately registered so we had to find connecting sites to try to dig into.

Fark user MrEricSir ran a reverse search on the IP itself to find the link to pausetime.com (that site brings up AV alerts, surf at your own risk), which in turn led to Anthony Maro and this address.

I took a different route when I googled and came across the wiowsa connection and did a whois for whatisoccupywallstreetabout.

No name available but it did have an email address which is also associated with a site named scatterfamily.com, a quick whois of that site led to Jeffery Hopwood and is registered to this address two blocks from the other.

It's fairly simple after that to google the names and find the http://www.linkedin.com/in/anthonymaroLinkedin info on Anthony as well as on Jeffery to see that they not only live near each other, but also work together at Discovery.

Then Fark user elchip googled the two names together and found a reference to "The Greatest Rickroll Ever" having been done by these two guys. Of course they soon deleted that post when they saw we were on to them , but of course they couldn't edit the google cache.

"The Greatest Rickroll Ever" that they refer to is a site they launched in 2007 called "radioheadlp7" which had a countdown timer and promised the latest Radiohead album info when the timer ran out. The band denied all knowledge, but still over 20,000 people signed up and got Rickrolled when the timer finally ran out.

This is the same thing, just a lot sloppier.

I sent Tweets with all of this info to their Twitter account and they promptly blocked me and removed the Tweets from their feed.

Feel free to use any of this info to educate and alert people.

Well I think they were trying to imply that they are female, which cannot be true because there aren't any of those on the internet.

Of course only a guy would think of a female as not having any genitals.

But Oh Em Gee, what if it's been Lance Armstrong all along?

Heh yeah I know. That is specifically why I used the word "genitals" to begin with, so it would apply to both genders. Obvious trolls are obvious.

You forgot the bit where they both work for Discover Communications, which does Animal Planet which is running an Animal Planet Election 2012 site.

Neutered pets don't have genitals.

I don't think this is an official Discovery project. They wouldn't have the IP tied to pausetime, and their server is junk - as pointed out by Fark user hutchkc:

hutchkc: I'm going to have to guess a couple people playing games and not an organization of any note. The server is ancient and index.html says it's using IIS 6.0 and has known security vulnerabilites so I am presuming someone is doing it on the cheap or their personal box.


Just a couple of guys reliving their college prank glory days.

I'm honestly surprised that no one has connected the dots, probably not enough exposure on it yet. There's no way it would have got through the weekend intact.
