Handle id #974 : Strider

http://rawstory.com/news/2008/San_Diego_GOP_chairman_cofounded_..

This was posted in the oneliner at pouet. Guess it was only matter of time. But one thing that bothers me is that it looks to me like someone has been adding more personal information to Striders profile recently

It seems like the outing of his past hasn't really caused problems for his political career yet...

As well it shouldn't. That article was clearly a bullshit hatchet job and the only people who care are the "hang the Republicans from the tallest tree" lunatic fringe.

We all would have loved to see him candidate for the pirate party, no? :)

At the time the story was released it was on about all major IT news portals here in germany - just like the farewell to cracking textfile from FLT.

Actually a lot of people, also many Democrats followers, did not judge him bad in discussion forums for being the Fairlight boss, but praised him like "Oh, how cool. I remember this from my childhood..."

ps: "Piratenpartei" sucks. A bunch of idiots without any clue.

It's pretty hard to try to explain Swedish computer sub culture irony and tasteless provocative kiddo humour that was never meant for the public eyes or grown ups, especially 20+ years later, in front of the American public.

Indeed, though admittedly the design wasn't the most tasteful I've seen...

BTW, is that "TV piraterna" glasses Griffin is wearing? :)

I think it's kind of funny. Being all that scene provocative and then it comes back and bites him *30* years later when he's part of the American establishment. They have perfected the art of digging up dirt on politicians over there.

This is kinda funny because it's an 30 year old prod, and also kinda sad for same reason. So lame that someone even bothers to report it. I hope this kind of culture never becomes the norm in europe..
