Underground Mac Community Foils a Coup 253

An anonymous reader writes "In an attempted palace coup that would not have been out of place in a Shakespearian tragedy, a moderator faction at Mac Serial Junkie, one of the largest underground Mac communities, was shut out this weekend after it was discovered that many staff members were plotting a coup. The plans included a surreptitious takeover of the domain name In an Open Letter to the Community, the founders of MSJ explain how a number of people at the highest levels of the underground planned their takeover activities for almost two years, only to be foiled at the last minute."

    I've paid for lots of software with my PayPal account, but without a credit card I can't purchase the other programs I'd like to.

    PayPal gives you a virtual credit card that can be used at any online store that accepts MasterCard. Next excuse?

    "Leftist" drivel...? He posts shit in general, but I don't think it's particularly lefty stuff. I *wish* it was; I'm what most people would call a leftist, and I think /. could use a bit more (but I know this place leans towards U.S.-style capitalistic libertarianism, so whatever). But did you catch kdawson's gem from a couple of days ago? [] That's some pretty crazy right wing nutso land crap he posted to the front page.

    No, kdawson just posts crud. Period.
