Time Magazine's poll of the 100 most influential people has been hacked by a motley band of online troublemakers who have managed to manipulate the top 21 names so their first letters spell "marblecake, also the game."

According to an inside account detailed by blogger Paul Lamere, members of the 4chan website exploited weaknesses in the web application that Time used to record reader votes. As a result, moot, the 20-something founder of 4chan, tops the list, which Time bills as "the world's most influential people in government, science, technology and the arts."
