In a message dated 11/4/99 6:15:02 PM Central Standard Time,
<< Hi folks. I've sent this email 3 times already, and there seems to be
some problem with them. I hope I am not generating 4 copies of this
already. If so, I apologize in advance. I hope you can understand if I
am a little anxious to get this out sooner.
In the last few hours, I have been the target of a few e-pranks. Sadly I
have reasons to suspect the prankster is someone on the GML.
My office email address (My office email address (chinc@sten...) was used to create an account with
the username "iamawuss" and password "smallpenis" (chuckle) on a famous
free webspace provider. And the same email address was used to subscribe
to a child porn mailing list. I have put both incident under control and
am working with the web masters of both sides to see if we can found the
source of the pranks. It should be possible to track the IP address of
the source and with that hopefully the ISP of the prankster will take
The help I am asking of you is to let me know whenever you see something
of questionable nature associated with my alias (Core), my real name
(CHIN, Chien Ting), my email addresses ((CHIN, Chien Ting), my email addresses (chinc@sten..., firstname.lastname@example.org,
ct_chin@...) or Newtype Asylum. I will deal with them and hopefully find
more leads to identify the pranskter. So far the attacks have been pretty
sophomoric but I don't know what else was done. Luckily the more
successful and more visible pranks are also easier to track.
I hope this doesn't cause undue alarm to the GML members, these pranks
have so far amazed rather than worried me. (to be honest, I am a little
tickled to be engaged in some real life cyberpunk action) But still I
hope the same thing doesn't happen to any other list members.
The suprising thing is that once someone spoofed my AOL account and sent out
a batch of Porn SPAM to other AOL people. They all kept sending me "remove
me from your mailing list" mails and I had nothing to do with it. But then
again my password at the time was gundam. SO I was pretty stupid as that
Gundam was mentioned in the interests section of my profile.
