Who allocated time to give birth to this image?
Who exactly is the subject talking to?
Why is the subject wearing dress attire?
Why did he choose to use seven proxies instead of, say, six?
Why did he use proxies instead of other methods of anonymity?
What actions did he commit to warrant hiding behind seven proxies?
If he wasn't hiding behind seven proxies, what would he be subjected to?
Is his clear display of confidence a sign that he is certain his identity is safe? Perhaps his adversary is incompetent?
Why did he refer to his location relative to the proxies as "behind"?
Is the capitalization of all the text a method for conveying the fact that he is yelling?
How did this particular image gain popularity and root itself into the minds of the viewers?

All the questions that will most likely remain unanswered.

>Who allocated time to give birth to this image?

He was a child porn spammer, I forget what he called himself. "Master" something IIRC.

>Who exactly is the subject talking to?
Mods

>Why is the subject wearing dress attire?
That's getting into some really obscure chan culture shit, something from 711chan which goes back even further to Bob from the church of the subgenius. Stuff like that just carries through with memes, which is why Anon, green guy, red guy and grey guy wears suit attire today.

>Why did he choose to use seven proxies instead of, say, six?
>Why did he use proxies instead of other methods of anonymity?
He used the Tor network, supposedly it really was that many nodes, I don't know if true.

>Why did he refer to his location relative to the proxies as "behind"?
That's just basic terminology.

>Is the capitalization of all the text a method for conveying the fact that he is yelling?
I would assume so, unless he was just retarded.

>How did this particular image gain popularity and root itself into the minds of the viewers?
12chan really. It eventually makes it's way to 4chan from users who saved the image and reused it on 4chan out of context. People who didn't know the origin kept using it and so it goes.

>All the questions that will most likely remain unanswered.
Sorry to say I know something this useless and sad. Someone might know better than I do.

Fake news.

The 7 proxies meme came from someone who hacked a myspace account in 2007. Had nothing to do with CP.

Wow, interesting. Were you there? Do you know the guy? How do you know he made it? Any more info? I remember there were many myspace hacks with that password list at the time.

This thread is dumb and I'm tempted to lock this thread.

>About
>“Good luck, I’m behind 7 proxies” is a catchphrase typically used as a sarcastic retort when someone either threatens to report you to the authorities, or claims to be able to track down your location.
>Origin
>While no archive of the thread exists, the phrase is believed to come from a 4chan thread on September 15th, 2007.
>After cracking into a woman’s computer, Myspace account and college financial assistance fund, the hackers posted several pictures and videos of her on 4chan. When she became aware of this, she went to 4chan in an attempt to have them taken down. After threatening to involve the authorities, she was met with the response: “I WENT THROUGH 7 PROXIES GOOD LUCK". The following screenshot is reported to have come from the thread.

>7 Proxies is a chan meme that originated from people who hacked some bitch's shit. They hacked her college financial assistance fund and then went through her computer, found images and videos of her, and posted them. Being told they'd be caught for hacking her college shit, she was met with this response:
>“ I WENT THROUGH 7 PROXIES GOOD LUCK „ —Anonymous, Post #39511552
>This meme has since become somewhat obscure, but is commonly used in an intimidating or sarcastic manner, or in discussion about online mischief requiring the use of proxies.

They both cite that motivational meme image as their sole source. Granted it's one more source than the "I was there" post >>11936 but still.

>This thread is dumb and I'm tempted to lock this thread.
Delete it, this isn't technology related at all. Having said that, I bet no one even reported it, that's because no one cares.

There's no need for deletion, this is more of a warning of what not to do which is to ruin a meme by FAILING to understand it while when thorougly explained, loses its meme status. Everyone just lost the game, the end.
