    Unfortunately your browser does not support IFrames.

    TMZ has learned … the NYPD is in possession of the tape, and last Wednesday 2 NYPD detectives from the Special Victims Unit flew to L.A. to interview Grant. We’re told they asked her about the tape and about other potential witnesses.

  • 10/08/14--13:47: 7chan
  • About

    7chan is an imageboard site modeled after the Japanese site Futaba Channel. The site rose to prominence in 2006 as 4chan users fled to 7chan for fewer posting restrictions.

    History

    7chan.org[1] was launched on September 25th, 2005, by founders Symbion and Zeneslev. On August 23rd, 2006, a large number of threads featuring nude photographs of under aged girls were posted to 4chan’s /b/ (random) board, resulting in the heavy moderation of the board known as “/b/-day.”[3] According to Encyclopedia Dramatica,[3] 4chan founder Christopher Poole posted a warning that any users participating in threads dealing with illegal content or “jailbait” photos would be globally banned:

    Participating in a thread dealing with illegal content will get you globally banned for two weeks (thread starter is indefinitely banned). This means merely replying to it removes you from this site for a minimum of two weeks. This includes JB and any other “gray area” threads. Posting any piece of personal information or inciting/participating in an invasion of any sort will also get you, and anybody who replied to the thread globally banned. You have the option to either report or ignore (not reply to) threads that break the rules. Thanks!

    Following the announcement, many 4chan users left the site for 7chan to evade the restrictions. The exodus resulted in a rivalry between users on 4chan’s /b/ and 7chan’s /b/.

    Features

    7chan contains six different board categories containing a total of 50 boards. Users can create new threads by submitting an image with an accompanying message. When a thread is replied to, it is bumped to the top of the board and is deleted if it reaches the end of the 10th page without receiving a reply. Content that is illegal to view in both Luxembourg or the United States is prohibited. The site previously contained a /i/ (invasion) board for users to organize off-site raids, but admins deleted it after the 7chan’s web host demanded its removal. 7chan maintains an active /fur (furry) board which was temporarily deleted in 2007.

    Highlights

    X is Not Your Personal Army

    “X is Not Your Personal Army” is an expression rumored to have originated on 7chan’s now defunct /i/ (invasion) board, which was employed for raids on external sites. The phrase is typically used to scold those who ask Internet users to raid or harass someone based on a personal vendetta.

    Epilepsy Forum Invasion

    On March 28th, 2008, 7chan users purportedly hacked the Epilepsy Foundation of America’s epilepsy support forum with JavaScript code causing flashing animations aimed to trigger headaches and seizures.[4][5]

    Traffic

    As of October 2014, 7chan.org has a global rank of 59,548 and a United States rank of 19,776 on the traffic analytics site Alexa.[2]

    2014 Red Bull Refund Settlement refers to an online initiative started by Red Bull, the American energy drink company, to grant anyone who had purchased one of their energy drinks a small portion of funds from a class action lawsuit brought against the company.

    Background

    On July 31st, 2014, Red Bull reached a settlement[6] of $13 million in a class action lawsuit brought against them by Benjamin Careathers, who alleged the drink’s slogan “Red Bull gives you wings” and other assertions about it improving the drinker’s performance were false, as he had not experienced those effects even after drinking Red Bull for over a decade.

    On October 8th, Buzzfeed[2] published a post titled “If You Bought A Red Bull In The Last 12 Years They Owe You Money -- Here’s The Easy Way To Get It” which explained any Red Bull consumer who had bought the drink between 2012 and October 3rd, 2014, was eligible to sign up to receive $10 (or $15 in Red Bull merchandise) from the settlement.

The settlement was covered by several other websites the same day including Life Hacker[4] and USA Today.[5] On October 9th, TIME[1] reported that the surge in traffic had caused the settlement site to crash, and went on to explain that because Red Bull had only committed to pay out $13 million to its customers, it was likely that money would be spread so thin between respondents each person’s portion of the money could be only $3. The same day Buzzfeed included an update to their original article which featured alternate ways of contacting Red Bull to sign up for a piece of the settlement:

    “- By mail: Class Action Settlement Administrator at Energy Drink Settlement, c/o GCG, P.O. Box 35123, Seattle, WA 98124-5123

  • Work in progress – event developing

    Overview

    The Snappening refers to a supposed ongoing mass leak of approximately 200,000 nude Snapchat photos and videos. Since around half of Snapchat users are thought to be under the age of 17, it is suspected that the leak may contain child pornography. It is currently unclear whether or not it is a hoax.

    Background

    A third-party Snapchat client app had been collecting data sent through it for several years, eventually storing up over 13GB of media that Snapchat users had thought were deleted.[1]

    The term “Snappening” was coined by the userbase of 4chan in reference to The Fappening, a similar event in which the nude photos of hundreds of celebrities were leaked by a hacker.

    Notable Developments

    Snapsave, a third-party app, was identified as the most likely source of the leakings. SnapSaved.com (no longer functional) was suggested as another possible source.[2]

    Snapchat promptly issued a statement condemning unauthorized third-party apps and people who had chosen to use them.[3]

  • WATER(: is a meme that originated on the Social Networking site Twitter. The meme began with a user asking “how empty is new hampshire”. The first user to reply added “I’m here and that’s all that matters??(;”, Another user replied to both users adding “all the more reason to stay away you fake binch(:”. User 1 replied adding “don’t make me brew more tea for ur pig henny(;”. The creator of the meme replied “sweatie(: show me some #receipts ! otherwise you are just spilling WATER(:” and thus, the meme was born.
