    Yes, that's right, this classic cautionary tale can now be yours to own. Published by Penguin, this special edition - complete with critical opinion and chapter-by-chapter synopsis - invites the reader to witness the decent of a young, naive and vane member of UKL forums.

    This edition demonstrates to us better than ever the dangers of rep vanity, through the actions of young Dorian Grey, who sells his soul for limitless green reputation gems against his name whilst living an alter-ego in which he scourers the underworld of sub forums, posting irrelevant, senseless and lurid threads whilst his rep stays at the “Dorian has a reputation beyond repute” level.

    Wilde’s tale horrifies and appals the reader as the novel reaches it's petrifying climax; Dorian - with the privileges of a mod but the post count of a day old newbie - bans his best friend from the forums and proceeds to try to delete the rep bar that started the whole sorry affair, ending with the destruction of his entire user account, and demise from the forum for all time.

    Remember, this chilling fiction is available at the reasonable price of 5.99 from all good book retailers.

    Hurry! Whilst legitimate comparison to some members of UKL lasts!

    Oh dear. Well hopefully when you get back you'll do one seeing as I've missed every single one of them! But I hear they're very amusing.

    Why thank you sir! And thank you for your generous donation of rep.

    Let us hope I don't go the way of Dorian Grey...
