Submission 4chan Powers Kim Jong Un in Time's "Person of the Year" Poll->

lipanitech writes: "4chan A few days prior to his victory, the group used a script to cast votes so that the first letter of each candidate's name spelled out "KJUGASCHAMBERS." The user who created the script told The Daily Dot that the phrase was chosen because it's clever, referenced Hitler and "wasn't as childish as our second choice of KFCBUTTSEX." Time deserves credit for not invalidating the results because of the obvious "cheating" or even wagging a finger at those responsible for them."
