In 2001 there was an enormous thread about Xupiter. In those days all members and guests could post anywhere they felt like, and the thread had many different people's problems in it. It also had many different members and guests posting suggestions in it, and eventually it had over 32,000 views. The chaos prompted Mike to create the Expert group - in 2002 I think - and to give the Experts a private forum, so that they didn't need to carry on their discussions in the public thread.

Xupiter is said to have died in 2003 - http://www.spywarein...ves/0903/16.php

Lop lasted a lot longer. http://www.spywarein...m/articles/lop/

LOP is still around, as we all know. As a matter of fact, either I'm just getting "lucky" or there is a noticeable increase in cases of LOP recently. :unsure:

Hehe... LOP is what got me here in the first place! Always had a soft spot for em....

It's gotta be because of summer break from school and all the Messenger Plus installs there undoubtedly are. :p

LOL. LOP brought me here too. :)
Only in slightly different way.

I was helping on a Dutch forum (mainly browser problems) where I admired the work of two guys that had all the answers.
One of them unfortunately died much too young and the other is known all over the web (except for that Dutch forum) as TonyKlein.

When I encountered the first random-named hijacker (LOP), I followed Tony's trail to this place called SWI to learn about HijackThis.
I learned heaps from the Experts at that forum and almost fell of my chair when they invited me into their midst. There I admired the work of two ladies that could make an answer if there wasn't one available.

That is why C2Media will always have a special place in my crosshairs. :bangbang:
