Hacking on PMC
PMC has exploded with blog posts recently! Down-vote trolls, now hacking! I read a featured article about it, yet here is my in-depth review & hypothesis on the situation:

1 Hackers:
The classic black hat hacker: he hacks for his own benefit, to steal money or get fame. Yet I believe the hackers on PMC are different. In the article I read, he thinks the uploader of the server hacked his page to stimulate views and to be featured. Well, that is possible, and it is obviously hacking, yet-

2 Sabotage:
It is possible (and likely) a hacking program has been distributed, yet I hypothesize that an outside hacker has come in, and hacked other peoples pages, to get the uploads and users banned, so they stand a higher chance of getting featured.

3 Why?
I believe it is an outsider because:
  1. In the server section, all the well known servers are up voted 10 000 times (or more).
  2. Not all server owners would want to do this, since it will obviously result in a PMC ban.
  3. That means it is most likely to be an outsider.

4 New discovery:
Apparently, thanks to Charlizard, the recent 1 up button being changed into diamonds (and removal of the down vote), could have resulted in a bug!

Thanks for reading!

Tell me what you think about this in the comments! One-up if you like it!
Thanks to http://www.planetminecraft.com/blog/warning---hacking-issue/ for the blog header image.

Here are some examples (note they often have the same amount of up votes):

I've been working on this blog, and have been trying to bring you as many screenshots as possible (I also found a NEW discovery!). I also noted that the amount of up-votes was often the same.

there are a few with the same number of diamonds

so i do not think a hacking program was sent around

if it was, why would they all hack themselves the same number of up votes? hackers are not that stupid

i smell sabotage

Yes, that was my conclusion. What I meant by sent around, is a circle of friends (2-3 people) made a hacking program and sabotaged the servers due to jealousy (mostly).

Apparently Gazamo resorted to hacking also now. Just the other day a disgruntled Gazamo staff was complaining how Gazamo was getting buried under hacked server posts. Next day VOILA!

Gazamo has 317229 Reccomends.

My Expression: -_-;;

No, only Cyprezz can do that.

And he is keeping them cause he may add back the downvote.
