Interesting Fact:
Did you know that just anyone can say anything they want on the internet wherever they want? Get the fuck outta here.


Megan Had It Coming is the title of a blog created on November 18, 2007 by a person calling herself "Kristen" who claimed to be close to the Megan Meier MySpace Suicide controversy. The blog contained three posts: "Set the record straight," "Who's really at fault?" and "I'm Lori Drew."

Within three weeks, the blog had received over 5,300 comments, reports on CNN and Fox News, widespread condemnation, a statement from the Drew attorney denying Lori was the author, and a pledge from the St. Louis Cyber Crimes police division to investigate whether the blog violated any laws, and who created the blog.

U GOT RICKROLLED[edit]

On December 9, all entries in the MHIC blog were replaced with a single entry containing a Rickroll and a link to Encyclopedia Dramatica. Chances are, if you're reading this, you already knew that. You may now choose to familiarize youself with the concept of LULZ.

While the blog appeared to be a defense of Lori Drew, the sociopathic neighbor mom accused of masterminding the plot to kill Megan, it actually demonstrated the collective stupidity of thousands of Internet users who confuse blog comments for having actual intellectual discourse.

EPIC TROLL IS EPIC[edit]

Several individuals and blogs, including Death By 1000 Papercuts, attempted to capitalize on the controversy with in-depth reporting on the blog, and asking experts for opinions on the writings.

   
 
The posting, which recounts in chilling detail the entire Megan Meier incident, mentions Drew's daughter, who was once friends with Meier.
 

 
 

—Fox News, 100%


   
 
I conferred with a blogging friend of mine who is a cybersecurity expert and we both agreed that ANONYMOUS and MHIC were the same person.
 

 
 

—Internet Genius Trench Reynolds, MyCrimeSpace, 100%

The further attention spurred thousands of Internet users to flood the blog with messages of hate and condemnation. As of December 9, the blog had received over 5,300 comments.

The majority of comments were as cohesive and informed as this video post about the MHIC blog:


   
 
I'm trying really hard not to say the obvious
