My 17 year-old sister has one of those nifty Xanga blog things. Her site has a little chat box on the right hand side, where you can post comments anonymously.

The other day she received a threat. Anonymous coward said "i swear im gonna fucking kick your ass. and dont worry any "damage" done to your face cyndie, will be a grate improvement."

I don't know whether to believe it or not, but she's pretty disturbed by it. I wanna find out who this fucker is - regardless of whether or not he/she is serious, I don't take that kind of bullshit from anybody.

With this chat thing, if you click on the name of the person who posted ("Anonymous" in this case) it'll show 3/4 of the IP address. I get 69.230.183.* when I do this.

To all you computer gurus: Is there any way to find the full IP address? Can I use it to find out who this is? Even if this guy wasn't serious, I wanna find out who it is.

Your sister will be fine.

eta: vigilante justice doesn't do much in today's society. If it disturbs you guys that much, tell her to quit the crap with AIM, copy the stuff on paper and file a police report. Not much else to do, of course you can hunt the person down with IP info, but I'm not aiding someone with that info.

contact Xanga and have the comment removed. and have the IP address possibly banned from the site. but no you your self won't be able to find his OR her actual IP address. it is up to Xanga to keep track of that.

Sorry that someone is causing trouble for you and your daughter sister

Am I just over-reacting?

Perhaps I should have added that there have been a number of death/assault threats previously. I dunno, maybe it is just some random dumbass who is trying to have a little fun. I don't like it when people fuck around with my sister.

ETA: That was in reply to w4klr. Damn, you guys type fast.

You will need to have them co-ordinate with the xanga(or whatever) site. That is if they even give a rats ass.

1) Why are you reading your 17-year-old sister's blog traffic?
2) If your 17-year-old sister doesn't like getting creepy chat traffic on her blog, maybe (and I know this is a major existential stretch) just maybe, she shouldn't have a blog.
3) I hate the word "blog." It was concocted by pimply-faced pale dweebs who call a computer a "pooter."
Link Posted: 8/25/2005 1:26:03 PM EDT
And what do you plan on doing if you do find out ?



Sorry I got a case of the ass today!

Then tell your sister to not encourage random assholes on the internet to send her anonymous messages.

That subnet is used by DSL customers of pacbell.net in or near Irvine, CA.
Link Posted: 8/25/2005 1:31:55 PM EDT
I had played with teh Blog format on one of my websites and I stopped because you have no control over who posts or any real way to lock them out... I know your sister can't afford an entire website and hosting that comes with it so she is kind of stuck...

either you expect an idiot every know and then.... or you shut down the site.

When you shut down the site, the idiot wins...

I talked to my sister and she does know somebody who recently moved to a city near Irvine (Lake Forest, if you californians are curious.) We're going to look into the possibility of it being that person.

That is a threat via interstate commerce. Contact the FBI.

At the very least, the sender will get contacted some agents.

This is what you must do RFN.

ETA Normal people don't write that kind of shit.
Much less to a girl.
