Is it just me or, do you suppose, with so much unnecessary "f" word, this is not a post at all, but a cleverly encoded message to fellow unsavory characters. The "f"'s are just enough to thwart (ahem,lesser!) intellects from critically analyzing the text. And as far as I can tell, there was no real content in the post.
Could the position of the f words be the key to the encrypted message?
I need to enlist the help of smarter minds to decode the message - I have zero experience in this, but I am sure there are minds bright enough on this list to crack the XL posts.
Here's all I could get going, trying to see if there was something in the name itself (but clearly the below is kindergarten level, at best)
>>> def fName(name="", offset=0, p=1):
newName="".join([chr(ord(c)+ offset -(26*((ord(c)+offset)>122))) for c in name])
>>> for i in range(0,26):
Certainly this one caught my eye ("rubfyy") - Ruby with the f-you acronym inside it!
Sorry, folks, its been a long week and I need to decompress.
