John McAfee found dead in Catalan prison cell

"American billionaire tycoon John McAfee, known for creating antivirus software, has been found dead in his Catalan prison cell, as confirmed by prison sources. The inmate’s death comes a day after the Supreme Court approved his extradition to the United States for alleged tax crimes committed between 2016 and 2018.

The well-known computer scientist was arrested in October last year at Spain’s El Prat airport and has been in the Sant Esteve Sesrovires jail (Barcelona) since where a search and arrest warrant from the United States was placed on him."

Inevitably people will fight over this. And eventually McAfee will be forgotten.....he was a slobbering attention whore, and Twitter was his primary drug of choice (when the coke and meth ran out I'm guessing).

A couple of his old tweets being shared on Facebook today. So where's the "31+ terrabytes", John?

Sad, McAfee had a lot of potential but not in a US prison.

When he asked for an apprentice, I applied (including a link to my website) and received two responses but on 30 August 2020, after submitting a recent photo and a picture of my expired passport, he didn’t respond.

It's amazing his followers even liked him considering so much of his Twitter activity was pump and dumping cryptos, and selling on his followers specifically

Pumping and Dumping has been what cryptocurrency has been running on for years. Also scams, like how Butterfly Labs (the now-defunct mining rig company) bought the buttcoin.com website to rewrite a negative review on their poorly built multi-thousand dollar Mini Rig and promote Bitcoin: http://www.buttcoinfoundation.org/the-s ... g-machine/

Something to point out: the largest editor of the McAfee article is one of those insane robot-operator nerds who fixes references, chases vandals, and thinks Mimbo-jimbo is a world hero or somesuch. He only messed with it for the 6 days after McAfee died.....usually he fixates on Star Trek and H.P. Lovecraft and other nerd nonsense.

Firstly, I can't think of a more stupid "academic subject area" than Buffy studies.
Second, Susmuffin tried to remove most of it on the 19th. Why? Suspecting a crazy person here. Less crazy than the crazies who created the article in the first place? Paxomen being the most annoying. You tell me.
