    If you guys have any PMs in last few days, I would advise saving them if they are being sent to your personal e-mail.

    The only PM I got was the hacker PMing me saying I goofed and my ass got banned.

    It was pretty funny in a way.

    Was it some mad objectivist intent on deleting the ASR thread, or some crazy subjectivist erasing measurements :p

    It was Marv, but not our Marv.

    Marv¹ was old beyond years in a terrible future that we will never know, now. Sweating away in his New Tejas lab buried deep under the burnt and dying earth where so many were buried, Marv¹ spent his last days tracking what went wrong, how It Happened.

    Finally, his peripheral brain pinged with the final calculation: It all started with a shitpost on SBAF. That was the beat of a buttefly's wings that inexorably led to the hurricane of a civilization's end. With his last ergs of energy, Marv¹ set his lab afire to power the chronoic gate a final time--opening to the exact date and time where the hack would have its effect.

    The changes made, the data erased, Marv¹ saved a future while destroying his own hateful past and present. In the last moments before his reality faded like a fist when you open your hand, he sent a message to a man who would never grow into the friend he would end a world with...and banned him.

    If there had been anyone or anything to see, Marv¹'s smile was the last part of him to fade.

    Why didn't Marv¹ go back further and make all us SBAF Friends powerful, healthy, and wealthy?! Marv¹ squandered that 'gateway' :mad: Damn him!

    Don't think the reset has taken place yet since content post-Tuesday is still available and the intro thread is still vanished.

    Unfortunately, it looks like the rollback will not happen due to the most recent available backup being more than a month old. Over a month of recent content is too much to lose to roll back.

    Bummer. Can the important missing threads be merged in from the backup?

    @Garns not easily. Right now I'm copying content from Archive.org and will try to get my hands on the backup to do it later. I need to get the backup via @purr1n

    What an asinine amount of damage to inflict by a truly defective individual. May karma deliver something special for that person.

    Again, my thanks to our moderators / admins who put in countless hours to keep the place running.

    Hopefully most of the deleted threads may be recovered, however cross links to / from other posts may never index correctly again.

    Glad Marv¹ remembered his site password decades later.

    Karma is a bitch. Don't be surprised if a stray dog digs up the perp's mom's grave.
