Gut Rumbles

November 05, 2003


I just had a really shitty comment posted on my blog that went beyond trolling. I deleted it, because the asswipe doesn't deserve the bandwidth. If the cocksucker had a set of cods, he'd let me know who he is and say that shit to my face.

Yeah, hotmail guy, you fucking coward. You have no idea what you're talking about and you don't have the the balls to confront me with your real name. YOU are some kinda macho guy. YOU are the kind of pussified American Kim Du Toit wrote about yesterday.

Bite my ass, you fucking creep.

UPDATE: the dogs are reporting some interesting scents now. I really don't like some of what I see there, but I will know more this evening. I hope some of this shit isn't true. If it is, I will be heartbroken, because I had more respect for you than to believe that you would troll me and fuck with my site like a goddam moron. One IP has already been blocked, and I believe that more will follow. I don't know why you assholes wanted to do such shit. It's just a goddam blog. I'll always wonder... WHY?

Update II: Okay, the searches from where I once worked I can understand. Those are my "friends." But some of this other shit I DON'T understand. What did I ever do to YOU?


Wow, Acidman....say how you really feel. I wish I could have read what he wrote that made you so upset. It must have been pretty bad since you are always open to the thoughts of others. Good for you for sticking up for yourself.

Wish I could have seen it. I'm always looking for examples of pussificanus Americus.

My first thought was this guy musta been flat out VILE for Rob to delete the comment.
On one hand, that made me even more curious. On the other, I'm glad Rob's finally had enough of this shit. I'd've banned the trolls after about the second or third time.
Either way, I hope he outs the asshole so the rest of us know who not to trust.

Good GOD it ain't me! Puleeeese don't go off and ban all IPs coming from Mindspring! You're almost as addicting as my morning coffee and cigarette.

Just remember, IPs can be spoofed fairly easily.

I had seen that comment and did not want to give the trolls anything else to say. Some people are just plain sick.

My vote is that you out the sonofabitch.

Just make sure your dogs have it nailed beyond question, first. But DO IT.

Trolls must be made to SUFFER.

Pappy -

Bejus is fairly handy at sniffing out domain registries and email accounts given an email header or an IP address...

Just sayin'.

It's always the anonymous pussies. It doesn't take much to run your mouth without fear of backlash. If someone wants to get my attention, then put their name to the garbage they spew.

I am sad, but not surprised. People are just fucking mean sometimes. Sorry you are dealing with dipshits Rob, and that's coming from a dipshit.

"Just remember, IPs can be spoofed fairly easily."
That's a pretty broad and sweeping generalization, and quite an incorrect assumption, Chablis.
My mother, father, brother, girlfriend, most of the people I work with, drink coffee with, meet and see at the grocery store couldn't spoof an IP address, let alone tell me in their own words what it means. Betcha GutDude doesn't know either (correct me if I'm wrong Rob).
You're average blog reader is NOT going to know how to spoof an IP address.
People buy wireless routers because they think it'd be neat to use their laptop from any room in the house.
You have ANY idea how many of them NEVER change the default access password, allowing ANYBODY within range to use their network for free wireless internet access?
I hate to say it, but you give blog readers and a lot of bloggers too much credit with your statement.

I hate blog scandals - Fuck that weirdo.

My statement would have been a sweeping generalization if I had stated that everyone knows how to spoof an IP. We're talking about one person in my estimation, although I haven't seen Rob's server logs so it may be several morons playing games here. Rob gets thousands of visitors a week's NOT impossible for at least one of those visitors to know how to spoof an IP. Hell, I know how to spoof an IP and I'm a blogger and a blog reader, so that blows your theory out of the water.

Your average, malicious and technically inclined person can spoof an IP address fairly easily. Granted, this 'Beth' character, nor any of her alternate personalities, doesn't seem to be savvy enough to do something like that but time will tell. If whoever these trolls are technically inclined, an htaccess ban won't stop them either and they'll be back causing trouble in no time.

The only 100% sure fire way of getting rid of 100% of the trolls out there is to implement pre-post moderation. I don't believe that to be the case here but it's far from unheard of.

It's free and simple to look up the ISP by the IP#, call the ISP and with the right words you can get the persons info. It's been done, trust me. Give me the damn # and I'll do it to get rid of the trolls. I wish they'd come to MY blog and leave a turd!
