The BumBum Scandal involved a certain member of the forums being account hijacked by another member of the forums, in the process creating a scandalous event that almost lead to an innocent banning if it not for one member of the forums who figured out who the perpetrator was.

As the story goes, a member called BumBumMilkToffee (in order to get back from his ban in #n at way.past.eleven by blue_tetris) took upon himself to hack the user account kkstrong and send hateful PM's to him and boasting BumBum's awesomeness (a bit of a given, since the boasting seems to match him). Dave obviously took offense to this, and banned kkstrong right on the spot, and since kkstrong has had the ability to sometimes be irritating on IRC, the views upon him were not in his favor until a member called Darn_Hippie (now known as Commander), supported kkstrong with facts from earlier IRC conversations with BumBum that BumBum knew kkstrong's password and was going to hack him in the first place, thus relinquishing kkstrong and banning BumBumMilkToffee.
