    Stupidity? Clever engineering I would say, based on disruption and frustration.

    With the disruption of THW, people will grow impatient. When one of the random redirects leads them to the fake ww2 site, they will not be cautious and fall into the trap.

    At first sight, the main page of the fake (=ww2) site was an exact replica of the main THW page. Only differences I spotted:
    - no Hive icon on Tab, for the fake site.
    - not logged on the fake site (obviously). Of course, with a bit of luck, you could eventually succeed to load the real THW site in another Tab, and see you are already logged here.

    The hive survives. Even though this wasn't a hack. But still.

    That "ww2" was quite suspicious last day, and I noticed out of all fast loading tabs I have, only Hive was so slow it didn't load.

    Good thing there was FB to check at, and I thought Ralle got drunk XD

    That's different than saying I like the other song more.
    How old was he in WW2 and what did he do then?

    Do not forget Benito. :wink:


    Quoting one of my earlier posts in this thread:

    "One of the random redirects is a fake Hive Workshop site. [...] Address of fake site is h**p://ww2.hiveworkshop.com/ (replace asterisks with proper letters) [...]"

    Should help you get the joke.
    As for Trump, honestly idk.

    I put asterisks, so that XenForo does not automatically create a clickable link leading to this dangerous proxy.


    To sum things up:

    - ww2 (from fake Hive Workshop site's url)
    - WW2
    - Benito
