Subeta is a website run by Keith Kurson. It is a crossbreed between Gaia Online, Neopets and furfaggotry. They committed a mortal sin - stealing Longcat and Tacgnol and using it as an item on their in-game avatars. Through a series of serious attacks including:
- Accessing Keith's Amazon.com account and buying $16,000 worth of PS3s.
- Multiple DDoS attacks on Subeta.
- Deep psyops operations on the forums.
- Hacking of thousands of Gaia accounts and claming Keith sold them.
- Bandwidth raep.
- E-mail hacking.
- Social Security number, reporting Keith to the FBI for child porn.
During the raid, Keith would taunt anon, telling us that he "was not afraid" and "you can't do anything". That was proven wrong when /b/ prevailed, even when many anon had given up, on the afternoon of May 21, 2007, when Keith posted the following to the Subeta news:
- "Longcat is GONE. It has been removed from the site, and Draconis has taken it's place.
- I'd like to take this time to issue an apology to you, the users. In the past month we have been handling a situation with multiple sites, over a silly 64x64 canvas filled with pixels. This was known to all of us as Longcat, and wasn't an important item on the site.
- The item caused confusion, and most of all it caused controversy on Subeta, as well as outside of Subeta. We kept fighting for Longcat and Subeta in hopes that it would protect the users, and make Subeta appear strong, and able to find off any attack. Whatever you've been told, keeping Longcat was never about pride, it was about keeping the site safe from internet terrorists now, and in the future.
- We weren't aware of the ability of one item to take down multiple fan-dedicated sites, and cause a legion of internet users to attack Subeta and it's users, not only on Subeta, but on other sites. We asked all users to change passwords, and make changes to their internet lives that could have been spared, had the item not been kept up.
- Some will look at this as a loss for Subeta, while we are viewing it as a definite win. We are able to continue about our business and create fun, exciting new things for all of you to do, and you are able to play Subeta without worrying about what is lurking, and who is really your friend.
- Again, we all apologize for any problems that you may have experienced in the past month due to this little group of pixels, and we hope that all of you keep playing Subeta. The site is about you, the users, and would be nothing without you. We also want to extend an apology to any community outside of Subeta that has been affected by this, including the communities we were having this problem with - all of the chans. Hopefully we can all move on to things that are more important We also apologize for any actions we took that may have provoked the chans, including taunting or pushing them to make sure they knew we weren't going to give up. All of this we accept as our fault, and we are apologizing to every party for.
- Starting out the new features, is the Cult Revamp! Recoded to work much better, you can now create a cult and choose from a number of pre-made templates, which range from Angelic to Hydrus
- We are leaving the comments on this post open, in hopes that everyone can play nice. We will disable that easy if need be."
