The SpongeBob SquarePants Forum Attack 2009 was a series of attacks led on the Spongebob forums of TV.com that lasted from August 2009 to October 2009. The attacks were conducted by Nightmarefan17, whose motive may be a direct result of the user Bob_Ball exposing him (he was previously under the account "RockGoddess_18"). He was best known for getting Chewster17 personally banned, and suspending four other well known users. The attacks resulted in the creation of The Spongebob Community, when terminoob felt the forums were no longer safe.
TOS'd (But were never Banned/Suspended)
A 'sequel' to these events occurred in July 2010 when Whaleblubber returned and started doing what Nightmarefan17 had done, taking advantage of the mods knack for banning users without a real purpose.
