Time for a new series highlighting the asshattery that goes on in our newest social network, Miiverse. It’s not just ANY social network, it’s a video game social network, so the kind of asshattery that goes on in there is even funnier than what you regularly get.
Take a look at our first example where a concerned gamer has somehow stumbled on to a hacker and his devious plans for GTA5, oh noes!
Note: All Miiverse names and Nintendo Network IDs are omitted for privacy reasons. I do not take screenshots of Miiverse, rather I transcribe what I see exactly how it is written.
