Bah!

No irony involved, because the website is/was owned by an *actor*.

The character who didn't believe in real-life hackers was, you know, made up. Not real. If he was, and he had owned the site, then you would have irony.

it would certainly qualify as metafictional irony, because it self-consciously addresses the devices of fiction. ie - this is only interesting not because of the actor himself, but because there are hackers duking it out on the website of an actor whose character had no belief in the ability of hackers. it also has a dash of cosmic irony about it for the same reasons, whether lock is "made up" or not.

if you don't see the strange resonance in that, you have no imagination.

More reet petite than hacker 133t

Typically a verdic of "boys will be boys" is usually passed in these situations however, the recklessness of this action is beyond comprehension.

2 Errors and 3 warnings on W3c's validator, there's no excuse for sloppy syntax!
