On January 20, 2002, Amechwarrior posted a tip on the HBO Forum, explaining the message 'You were telefragged'. He followed it up with an email that was clearer:
If someone is "inside" the teleporter, they are
behind the green screen but not teleporting, step into
the other teleporter that leads to it. His screen
will go white and he will die if he does not step out.
Then it will say on his screen "You've been
telefragged". Then you can laugh at him all day for
