Sensationalist Headlines Double Post

Scorpious posted twice in the same thread without merging, interruption, or a two-hour wait.

On the 23rd of September, 2012, he posted in the thread "China postpones ceremony to mark 40 years of relations with Japan due to anti-Japan protests". His first two posts in the thread, Posts #4[1] and #5,[2] were separated by neither another post nor two hours, nor were they merged into one, as is usual of the automerge system. This was so unusual that the thread was derailed.

Later in the day, smurfy, who created the thread, made a video mimicking a BBC report, which he posted and added to the OP.[3] A day later, ThePinkPanzer made a thread in SH documenting the incident, using the thread, a screenshot of the incident, and smurfy's video as sources.[4] Everyone who posted in the thread, fourty one in all, was banned for posting in a "troll thread" by Starpluck. Additionally, in response to the event, wulfe8857 bought Scorpious the title "DERAILER OF THREADS DESTROYER OF IDIOTS".
