It seems like every other day, a ". exe" pasta is submitted to the site. While the setting and characters of the stories aren't the same, isn't the plot always centered around the narrator finding a weird file on their computer and then realizing it's full of gory images and cryptic messages?

Since when has ". exe" been such a fad? Perhaps its influence comes from the Sonic.exe pasta, but I'm just speculating.

Currently, there are exactly 200 search results for "exe" on the Wiki.

My question to you is, when will this trend become a problem? Is it already a problem?
