    Hello All

    I have been a member of this forum for a long time and appreciate the help everyone has given to each other.

    But right now I need you, to help me pull off the biggest online prank ever! Currently the starting NBA all stars are chosen by votes. I propose we pick the worst players in the vote and try to get them the most votes (even over Kobe Bryant). To do this I created a page that tells you who to vote for and how.

    This is were I need your help, I need all the diggs I can get or this will never get off the ground. So please for the love of Pete go and digg my story and I will love you forever.

    Thanks Paper-Boy.

    I am ok with them catching onto it because we are only voting what we think is best. It just so happens we all think the worst players on the ballot or best... Please digg.

    lol, I remember seeing this on TRL once. Someone started one of those old AOL chain letters and told everyone to vote for New Kids On The Block as the number video.. and it worked! And remember this was at a time when NSync and Britney were the chart toppers, about 10 years ago, before social networks and web 2.0.

    You could also setup mini jobs on mturk for people to digg up the story, and pay them like $0.02-0.05 each. I think some measly $20 will go a long way like this :p

    Hah, I bet I just gave an idea to lots of people on how to abuse this. Do I deserve a thanks or what? JK, I did digg the story though.
