Eileen Ormsby has the story:
It seems that ETM [EnterTheMatrix] has decided to retire and go out with a big ‘Fuck You’ bang. Late last night they added an ASCI up-yours finger made out of number 5 digits (5555 translates to ‘LOL’ in Thai) to their seller’s page. A little later, a quote appeared: “The game’s out there, and it’s play or get played. That simple.” It is one of the most famous quotes from The Wire, by Omar Little, a character known for double-crossing and outsmarting drug dealers.
The Sydney Morning Herald followed up on story.
Over on Silk Road, no one will be surprised to hear that ETM has been the subject of a whole lot of discussion.
