I find it odd that people use these threads for their 1st post without reading the content of the thread. This is exactly what's happening in the 1st cryptology contest thread - people still do not understand that the contest is over. The topic is page 12 and climbing, with the contest being won on the 7th page. On top of that, they are still suggesting possibilities that were ruled out right on the 2nd page. Either this is pure laziness, illiterateness, or just plain "noob"ness.
Please. People. Read the thread. If you want to show the world you have the mental capacity to cheat your way through a game with hacks, at the very least show them that you can read.
