Damn. It was Frank? Wow. I wouldn't have guessed it. [:(]

Sorry to hear that myself, seemed like an ok guy.

Well, dare I say that it looks like Frank got Spanked?
Link Posted: 10/24/2001 12:53:53 PM EDT
Are you sure it was Frank? I mean, I'm sure you are sure, but.... So was it Frank last time too (about 5-6 mos. ago)?
Link Posted: 10/24/2001 1:03:39 PM EDT
Kinda' hard to believe it was Frank. I always checked out any thread of his. He was always coming up with off the wall stuff and was good for a laugh. He was one of the coolest dudes here. I did miss yesterdays exictment though. From the sounds of it I'm not sorry. I just never figured he would do something like that.

Damn that was dumb! Any body know that you can't get a new log in name and hide your self. There is only so much one can do to hide your IP. That sort'a gutless,I set my self up a new name cuz I did not like the old one and even tell people. What the heck could somebody on the net say to make you want to act like damn kid anyway. most people here are just mess'en with you anyway.

Well, FrankTheSpank posted some SCAT pics for shock effect on McUZI.com once. I asked him not to, and he didn't anymore. So, the history is there. Still. I hope the accusation is based on an IP traceroute (Frank lives in the Bay Area) rather than him posting those pic in the past. Let's face it. SCAT is about the nastiest stuff out there. Anyone could post it for shock effect- without it being FrankTheSpank.

I heard about this last night but I really could not believe it since he seems to be an OK guy. I think that being unemployed does make you lose it sometimes. Hope he is well where he is.

GB, good job. You tracked him down, then didn't overreact. Posting his personal information, as I saw others request, would be something you couldn't take back. If anything happened to him, I don't think you'd want to feel responsible. I think your reaction says a lot about the kind of strong person you are. I'm glad to see that we haven't worn you down yet with the constant barrage of demands.z

I am constantly amazed at what gets people off. So Frank is into watching people poop, let him have a kid or two and the fascination will wear off. It is rather amusing the extremes these people go to get a good purge going, but to most (normal) people I gather it would be rather repulsive. All in all, as far as porn goes, it is right down there with chick with uh...hmmm....penis's, men wearing pantyhose and anything that involves farm animals. {edited because I couldn't spell PORN right, even after three tries (must be going blind)]

I agree. Whoever did that should be hammered. DOS attack? That's a stretch. Hell. I couln't even imagine the bandwidth this site eats, I doubt a few threads posted in rapid sucession could do a darn thing. [:)] Smart grasshopper raises the time allotted between posts though. A Linux cluster with say 10 PC's or better running a SLAM program in tandem could definitley gnaw some wicked bandwidth. It's not like it would delete any file trees, but it for damn sure would grind any site to a halt.

I remember reading some of his posts. A lot of them seemed to be a cry for help in my opinion; everybody at work hates me for some reason, I don't like the people I call my friends, etc. Me and a lot of other board members expended significant effort to try and brighten up his spirits and give him some advice. And this type of behavior is his reaction? GoatBoy, save us all a ton of potential trouble and ban this guy - clearly he's displaying that he is on a downward spiral and where he'll end up is a place nobody needs to be around.

GB, as a computer security professional, I can't see how posting pictures would qualify as a DoS. The service was never interuppted in such a way that people could not access content, it's just that the content was disgusting and disturbing by most peoples' standards. It's more like harassment. However, if he really did post kid porn, as has been previously stated, then that's a whole different ball of wax. God Bless Texas

Most people suffer from thinking they are anonymous on the internet. While there are steps you can take to try and hide yourself, you are never truly anonymous. It's just a matter of how well you hide yourself. I'm using a proxy right now because the corporate firewall doesn't allow access to ar15.com from the outside, but a simple java applet or perl script on the server could get my real IP address, regardless of a proxy. I tracked down some of the kids who were in the group that broke into whitehouse.gov. They called themselves global Hell, or gH for short, and their leader was a kid by the name of Mosthated. He had broken into some servers that were colocated where I worked and I ran into him on IRC where I told him that other people wouldn't be as forgiving as I was. He didn't listen and kept breaking into other people's machines, so I ended up writing a little program that tracked him on IRC. He would use proxies all throughout North America and Europe that people hadn't secured to hide where he was coming from and idle his IRC client. After a while, one of the proxies he and his friends would use would go down or the owner would notice the connection and kill it, causing his IRC connection to die and come back up giving up his real IP address. He was using a local ISP that I had contacts with, but I could have just as easily socially engineered them. I had all his information (his name, mom's name, home address, phone number, etc.) the day the FBI raided his house and confiscated all his equipment. I was just going to go over and give him a scare, but the FBI came down on him and the rest of gH before I got a chance. The kid was 19 years old and his name was Patrick Gregory. Last I heard, this so-called computer genius (what hacker runs Windows?) missed his federal idnictment hearing because he was in county lockup for assault and grand theft auto. I'm sure he's serving his sentence by now. God Bless Texas

I figured it was Frank due to the way he was treated by moderators in the chat room the other night. I would say he has done this as his last act of defiance because he knew he would not be welcomed here any more.

I just want to point out that it wasn't me. I'm here to make you think. Not puke.FTS, wherever you are...Cut that shit out!

David, could you expand upon this for those of us who weren't there? I like FranktheSpank, I truly hope it wasn't him, but it looks like it was. Perhaps the guy had some 'reason' to act as he did, although I think he went WAAAY overboard with his act of defiance.
Link Posted: 10/24/2001 7:25:17 PM EDT
Actually the ‘content’ posted was damaging to the site. I think you could bill him for recovery time, litigation time and lost revenue because of the two. It was clearly a disruption to the service ... I quit browsing for fear of looking at some dude munching on excrement. - Gotta LOVE that DMCA
Link Posted: 10/24/2001 7:58:29 PM EDT
I also like Frank The Spank. He was really witty most of the time... I guess being jobless finally got to him. "Scat" = YUCK !!!

Sure, in the same way that bin Laden and his group had a "reason" to blow up the World Trade Centers. I only hope "reason" does not equate "excuse".

No, just that when you are used to having and fella around, and he seems like a good guy, and suddenly he goes ape-shit, you start searching for reasons. Not and excuse, just some understanding. Personally, his attack didn't effect me, because after the first post, I ignored it all. But I understand why everyone is so upset over the matter.
Link Posted: 10/26/2001 4:46:03 PM EDT
I thought that Franks posts where interesting but that sh-t that he posted was plain sick and any one who would look and post that stuff is also. Frank, go get the help that you most definitly need! BKVic
