Lost account access

As a part of its privacy policy, NoBleme will protect your anonymity as much as possible. This means that you will never be sent any emails that could be used to link you to your identity on the website, or asking you to provide your password. On top of that, automated password recovery systems can be used in a few nefarious ways that we would rather not have to deal with. With this context in mind, NoBleme decided to not implement an automated account recovery process.

If you have lost access to your account (forgotten username, forgotten password, or otherwise), the only way to recover that access is to go on NoBleme's NoBleme's IRC chat server and ask for a website administrator to manually reset your account's password. No need to worry about identity usurpation, there is a strict process in place that will allow the administrator to verify your identity before doing the resetting.

A famous owl, oh really?

The original picture.

In 2001, John White, a nature photographer, shared a picture of a Snowy owl on the Internet[1]. According to him, the shocked expression of the owl was due to panting, as the owl was trying to cool itself down[2].

Some years later, in 2005, an unknown person found this owl picture and added a caption to it which read "O RLY?", making it look like the owl is sarcastically asking "Oh, really?". It spread fast all over the Internet, becoming one of the most popular memes of its era.
