With a debate entitled 'black joke a thon', it comes down to two central options:

1. Aric was merely 'screwing around', or consented to a friend setting up such a debate.

2. Aric's account was infiltrated by a friend, or by some outside hacker.

And, looking at a lot of Aric's other debates and previous participation on DDO, it seems very uncharacteristic of Aric to post such a distasteful debate; thus, I can agree with you that, in fact, Aric's account was hacked.

It may have been a bit of over-analysis, but I'm a bit of an insomniac, and, as it's 4:41 AM, I'm not quite 'all there' at the moment.

Were he screwing around, he most likely would have done it in a more grammatically correct manner.

HACK HACK HACK THE PLANET
HACK MY TOASTER
HACK

It it highly unlikely that anyone was 'hacked'. One of two things probably happened if at all.

One of his friends got into his account or someone phished for his password (aka sent him an email saying it's from Debate.org and that they need his password).

No hacking took place and I guarantee it. People need to stop throwing that word around so much.

Fine, John.
pcmbrown is addressing the likelihood that Aric was not the one who posted the black a thon debate or put the nonsensical comments in the other debates in the last day. If you want us to say his account was likely compromised, instead of hacked, we can do that.

Do you not think something very strange is going on here John?

Two separate accounts suddenly start spewing similar random racist comments within a week or so.

Charlie's account creates "Joke wars (Theme: Black jokes) http://www.debate.org...

Then Aric's creates "black joke a thon" http://www.debate.org...

Both completely out of character for the members who's accounts they appeared under.

Coincidence?

Plus a couple of weeks ago, a number of accounts were created that set up a bunch of racial debates like these:
http://www.debate.org... http://www.debate.org...

Don't want to come off as a conspiracy theorist but I think something fishy may be going on.

It is odd. Aric also forfeited a round of my debate with him, while he posted his joke-a-thon. I highly doubt it was Aric that did any of this. He's built up a good record on this site, why screw it up? Especially in the middle of a debate?

Who is Aric?

He's a relatively new member. I don't think he's been around long enough for me to feel any sentimental value for him though.

Was he banned?
