I added links for Smerbia. I didn't make a write up though, unsure whether there's more history to it besides the thread.

P.S. Macky, all the Wiki pages your adding are great.

yes. people know the origin of lolben.

once upon a time when speedsolving was young. a user happen to come across the board and the board appealed to him. his name was....ben1996123. Now ben1996123 created a video (actually several) of him solving which was was obviously hax (here's one). People frowned upon him and became violent. Rants were thrown and flames of the intarwebz grew into hell on screen. Thus when the forum's flame finally receded, people became less violent to the user and instead of creating a long post that would cause the population to go tl;dr, we simply shortened our flames to a simple...lolben. Now we laugh at it when we look back. Seeing how lolben he was and to remind ourselves that we should not hax. So lolben we thank you.....ntrly but still. So whenever we see an erroneous claim or video hax, we simply lolben.
