Jesus. Anyone who hasn't read it yet... well, I mean, you can say "msscribe had a ton of sockpuppets and used them to make friends", but that's such an oversimplification. This woman was like an evil genius. It's really fascinating, even if I don't understand most of the IP tracing stuff.
Charlotte Lennox is an unbelievable researcher and deserves so many kudos for pulling all this together and making it coherent. I know there's been a lot of wank about msscribe, and a lot of people have been asking, what's the big deal? Well, firstly, that one woman manipulated the inner workings of fandom so successfully - but mostly I think that Ms. Lennox's exposé is so smooth and well-written that it really catches people. You should read it for her absolutely phenomenal journalism skills more than anything else.
