The Pirate Radio War of 2011

The North American pirate radio war of 2011, was largely caused by the extensive use of sock-puppets by 'Commander Bunny', of WBNY (aka 'Pat Murphy', formerly the official board admin), to control and dominate the Free Radio Network, a long-standing forum devoted to shortwave pirate radio listening. The most active sock-puppets were exposed by John Poet of The Crystal Ship pirate radio station, as well as by Guise Faux of the satirical Radio Paranoia blog. Poet and TCS were subsequently caught by the FCC. Poet and many pirate DXers believe the FCC may have been given helpful information, and that at least one complaint was filed by, FCC snitches 'Commander Bunny' and/or 'Kracker'.
