Ultra Literacy Quest
Put bluntly, the Ultra Literacy Quest could only be completed by personally showing Jick, Mr Skullhead, or another lounger, through conversation, that you had a good grasp of the English language and that you generally weren't an asshat.
You couldn't stumble across a secret area and do it. If you think about it, the "lounge axes" that some people used to jokingly refer to sound a lot like "lounge access".
Few players have lounge access, and J & S don't particularly want to give it to whole slews of people. The Ultra Literacy Quest was created as a red herring so that no one had to be told that they simply weren't wanted in the lounge chat channel.
