The worldwide LJ KOLBASA thing went through me. Aaargh. :D %) I guess it pays to have english speaking friends and whatnot. I wonder if the KOLBASA thing is on LJDrama yet?

Since I was drunk (and maybe high?) at the time of the Kolbasa/anti-Kolbasa craze (I was drinking analgesics and some berry balms all evening), I posted and deleted it several times, but it ended up in deleted state, not still around one. So, here is it again. :P
Btw, respect to nightway, and if Kolbasa v2.0 is finished then it will also go to w23.

Update:What uses could be for Kolbasa? Well, it can track the threads of the people your friends read, since you probably find on friends page. Also, your thread can be posted back as a comment in nightway's journal, or somesuch, if your thread is sufficiently long. Or you could post a comment in every predescessor's entry (if it still exists, which may be false because of the "anti-kolbasa" hysteria) and congratulate them of being in the same kolbasa thread, or do whatever. ;)
Update2: Since security hole that allowed the Kolbasa to flourish is going to be closed soon... Get one soon. Sausages, get them while they are still hot! Hot Dogs! Hot Dogs!

Yep, I was kind of amused to find, that it spread to the english speaking LJ people through me. And the post was on for maybe 10 or so minutes (a couple of times though).

Well, it was a silly idea that nightway had. He also made the english version. Basicly, this thing uses one of the holes in LJ code to post itself to your journal if you are logged in and have java scripts used at the time. If you don't enter an lj user name there, it will have "Unknown lj tag" instead.

There isn't actually any point behind it, since it was just an idle coding or something. Although it is reminiscent of the old russian "Steam train"-Bandwagon game, that russian students did in school during lessons. The idea is like this: there is a piece of paper, a steam train drawn, and a simple line like: if you're bored, draw a wagoon and pass on.

A lot of people dissected the code for the thing, and it doesn't steal passwords or anything (still, watching the panic was amusing).

w23 thought about making Kolbasa v2.0 with mapping thingy, that will draw tree of people joining the game, and effectively map the LJ, but it wasn't finished apparently. Both nightway and w23 speak english apparently, so you can go talk to them, if you want to help with that idea. ;)

Yep, we rawk. *highfives*
Now we only need to find and kill people who spread the paranoia and hysteria. As well as black implementations exploiting the same hole.

Re: Nonsense. It is NOT a password stealer.
Yep, I kind of don't appreciate the panic. At least here. Even if its amusing. Thank you for posting this, since it saved me time to post the same.
*gives a complimentory* From Russia with love. :D Moscow, Russia to be precise.
In USA you spread Panic, in Russia the Panic spreads YOU!
