Shi Yongxin, the abbot of the Shaolin Temple, a Chinese monastery famous for its martial monks, fell victim to an online hoax in which the front page of the temple's website was replaced with a fake letter of remorse.

"I traded the monastery's tranquility and holy Buddhism for the fame of Shaolin and myself," said the post, which appeared early Wednesday morning.
