[HISTORY] cracky-chan [SERIOUS BUSINESS] (597)

1 Name: Not in Employment, Education or Training 1993-09-4298 08:04 [no]

I've been trying to put order into the whole drama history around cracky-chan, her pictures, livejournals and the related shenannigans going on in 4chan's /b/ and elsewhere. This is a first rough draft, so help me out with additional knowledge or correct me where I might have been wrong, please.

  • January 6th

The first cracky-chan pics appear on /b/. The very first one, posted on
02:17 shows the soon to be famous "'sup 4chan" phrase written on the
palm of her hand. During the next two weeks, more sets appear on /b/
and W.T. Snacks finds out that the poster's IP is from the UK.

  • February 5th

"cracky" becomes wordfiltered on /b/.

  • March 29th

www.livejournal.com/users/freakygirl/ becomes publically known.
No new pics appear, but the hints solidify and people assume they have
got into contact with the real cracky-chan. The owner of cracky-chan.com
will later denounce this journal as fake, though this might have been a move
to protect her identity, as he also later takes down all of her real pictures
from his website.
Also, later on, another journal, whether fake or real, becomes known:
www.livejournal.com/users/kittycat/

  • April 3rd

cracky-chan's tripcode becomes publically known through shii:
shii.org/bbs/blog/pivot/entry.php?id=65
It is "sweet" and makes the claim that the original cracky-chan pictures
weren't originally posted by her herself more believable.

  • April 6th, 7th

www.livejournal.com/users/scarecrowmaiden becomes publically known,
many new cracky-chan pics appear on /b/, some nude, some disturbing,
some both. The journal gets deleted by the owner very quickly.

  • June 6th

cracky-chan pics become bannable even on /b/.
Anonymous mods talk of emails from cracky requesting this.

115 This post sucks.

116 Name: Captain Obvious 1993-09-4517 18:43 [no]

the board is good entertainment, even if you're not a pedophile.

i don't pity cracky much and i just love to see those stalker pedos get nuts over her.

117 Name: Captain Obvious 1993-09-4523 11:18 [no]

Listen you guys. Keep /cracky on the DL. Seriously, it'll get shut down if it gets too big. Kirtaner said he's already gotten shit over it.

That's some serious shit right there.

i think it's an acronym for "download"

122 Name: Captain Obvious 1993-09-4523 19:03 [no]

down-low

123 Name: Captain Obvious 1993-09-4523 20:46 [no]

Yes, download, or "down-lowd" as the cool kids like >>122 say.

124 Name: Captain Obvious 1993-09-4524 20:15 [no]

He meant "keep it on the down low," as in keep it quiet. It's not the internet slang DL, it's regular everyday slang DL. Holy shit people, learn to read the context FFS. Why would anyone say "Keep that board on the download?" You fuckers really are DQN.

Don't know if you guys have seen this or not but this is one of Snacks' emails to Cracky. Anyone else have any of these? I find this one particularly intriguing because W.T. Snacks seems fairly interested in finding Cracky as well or atleast as the time...

Word has it this is also an address of yours. If not, please disregard.
However, if so, I have some new important info and help for you.

Subject: RE: Is this [real name]?

A-ha, hello.
You've done a good job disappearing from the internet. This is the last email I tried to send on the 19th:

>I hope nothing drastic happened while I was gone.
>There's currently shit like this being posted:
>http://www.8chan.net/archive/.cracky/2.html
>
>I finally closed that dis thread linked in there as well.
>I hope that's not actually your address, although I've marked the poster
>in such a case.
>
>People have been saying your email is [redacted]. I don't
>know if that's another of yours, or just some random person's...
>
>I noticed the last site I linked closed down, I'm rather suprised they
>would comply. Good to know not everyone is such a fucker.
>I don't know if you're aware, but there's also http://cracky-chan.com,
>although that seems less likely to be swayed so easily.
>
>W.T. Snacks

I later learned the guy who ran that other site took it down on his own accord though.
A lot of people really believe that you commited suicide... good for your disappearing act, eh?
Probably best to keep it that way.

The entire thing has really died down after that, luckily. The only place I saw this email posted was the original cracky-chan thread in world4ch/vip/.
I promptly deleted it. Given the "won't be for much longer", I take it you're abandoning this one as well. Has anyone else tried contacting you here?

I'm sorry that because of 4chan you've been forced to do things like this. I was suprised to see you delete your paid account on LJ.

If you don't mind, I'd like to keep in touch.
I honestly never bought into the "cracky-chan hype" in /b/, but upon seeing more than just images of you, you seem pretty cool.
At the very least, I'd like to have a way to contact you in case something really important happens, hah.
Although I know you're trying to cut off all contact from 4chan and probably wouldn't be comfortable with it, please feel free to email me from your new address.
Of course, I'm not sharing this with anyone, I wouldn't want to cause you any more trouble. Just looking to help.
Heh, I'm sure that sounds weird.

W.T. Snacks

/cracky/ to be taken down! A new place to continue the quest for unsolving the mystery is needed!

140 Name: Captain Obvious 1993-09-4549 16:34 [no]

No, the mistery is OVER. She showed up, she mailed the proof to Kirtaner.

141 Name: Kirtaner!Ub4TCdRjOM 1993-09-4549 16:40 [no]

Sup guys.

She's definitely legit. Before she sent me a photo, I looked up the IP and email headers, they matched up fine.

Then she sent me a photo holding a sign with the date on it saying "Hi Kirtaner. You can close the board now." Either this is definitely real, or a very elaborate prank done by someone who looks like cracky and lives in the same location.

I'm going to be closing /cracky sometime today. I hope this finally brings closure to the whole phenominon.

142 Name: Captain Obvious 1993-09-4549 16:41 [no]

>>140
I have seen no such proof. It isn't over for me until I see proof.

143 Name: Kirtaner!Ub4TCdRjOM 1993-09-4549 16:49 [no]

>>142
You'll probably be seeing the proof soon.

144 Name: Captain Obvious 1993-09-4549 16:51 [no]

You'll be seeing it as soon as he finishes photoshopping it!

145 Name: Captain Obvious 1993-09-4549 16:59 [no]

Kirtaner, why close it? If this is supposed to give closure, just let it die by itself; removing the board so soon after the alleged reappearance of cracky is only going to fuel the speculation.

146 Name: Kirtaner!Ub4TCdRjOM 1993-09-4549 17:06 [no]

>>145
That's why I haven't closed it yet.

I'm giving people some time to see the thread first. I'm just thinking of the best way to end it all.

147 Name: Captain Obvious 1993-09-4549 17:14 [no]

>>146

End it eva style.

148 Name: Captain Obvious 1993-09-4549 17:15 [no]

The best way to end it all would probably less secrecy and mystery.

I know that she would want it to end all right now but it's not going to happen that way.

I think she should just get a tripcode, post a bit among the imageboards, talk with us like we talk with anybody and realize that stalkers are everywhere on the internet just as are DQN and just plain fun & silly people you can get along with. After a while, she'll be like Era and nobody will really pay any attention to this anymore.

love is over.

153 Name: Captain Obvious 1993-09-4549 21:03 [no]

Why are you so reasonable, Kirtaner?

It does not make sense.

154 Name: Captain Obvious 1993-09-4549 21:15 [no]

The crackychan saga has slightly intrigued me over time. At first I thought she was just an angsty teenager that wanted attention. Then she either got bored or wanted more attention, thus the disappearing act. Now this stunt has all of the same effects... she claims she does not want attention yet she is drawing attention to herself. Ultimately, you never can know for sure. Even if she herself came out and said it, she might be lying.

Hell, this latest thing might not even be her (assuming that is the only photo... I would not be surprised in the least if Kirtaner was given an actual face shot as proof aswell with the explict instructions not to mention it or post it.. and he certainly does not want to be nagged for it).

tl;dr, but there goes a comedy goldmine (which I'm sure will just relocate somewhere else). I've never seen people so obsessed yet never actually able to pull docs on someone (that isn't to say someone hasn't, but the people 'publically' working towards it well.. suck). Not to mention people claiming cracky is special and that her photos are art! There are millions of crackys out there, she isn't a beautiful unique snowflake.

Wow, just last night I noticed how retarded all the crap on the cracky-chan board was and wrote up a rant here: http://shii.org/bbs/blog/pivot/entry.php?p=55 Just 24 hours later and it's all dead in the ground.

The real reason Cracky was being stalked was because so many people were spreading disinformation. If she had been able to leave quietly without the LJ idiots making up stuff about secret sites and new pictures, the noise would have dried up within a month.

163 Name: Captain Obvious 1993-09-4549 23:30 [no]

>>162
Making up shit to screw with the stalker is FUN though. I'm not entirely sure she did not want the attention though. Most girls on teh internets do not get stalker groups. I wouldn't actually be surprised if cracky herself palnned things out longterm. That shit with the keyloggers was dumb though. Should have gone with the XSS route considering how insercure LJ is.

Nothing is more likely than what has already happened - I think that you've literally milked this beast dry.

I didn't use to live that far away from Oxford, but considering what I can see photo-wise, she does look like a soft Southern Twat - At least that cuts half of the UK out of the picture. No Northerner would be seen dead wanking about like this.
