    It was a fake account. Nothing more than a mere trolling attempt, I think.

    Hmm i think it is the legit acct yifan_lu, maybe it was an answer to the thread asking if the hk source should be released lol. I was curious what he said :P

    tbh, i was curious as well,
    but the thumbnail shows that the op is banned and comparing yifan on the other thread where the user is still active. So it was certainly a fake.

    It was probably something like yifan_Iu (capital I instead of lowercase L). If the mods saw fit to delete it, you should just trust in their judgement. If it contained a morsel of usefulness or truth, they'd have probably locked it instead.

    Edit: It was a Greek у in the name. So there you go, end of discussion ♪

    it was a fake account created yesterday with a total amount of 2 posts.
    Location was China (at least it said that on the account).
    cant be more obvious. the real yifan has more posts and exists far longer on that board.
    And why on earth should he post something like that.
    he'd release it without asking. (well ... no pirating tool but other stuff... he didnt ask for releasing henkaku
    and all the other stuff... right?)

    I'm flattered honestly. That people would waste so much time and effort in giving me maximal attention. Like I said in the nuked thread before, I am an attention whore and if you really want to get at me, the worst you can do is ignore me and my posts. Stop talking about me or tweeting or emailing me.

    He did contribute though. This is the gbatemp we all love, if you're a dev you can be utter shit to people (though usually its the people that are shit to you first).

    Anyhow, I don't see the problem with his KOTH challenge.
