Hi guys! It just hit me, what Trashy is up to. It turns out that he may not be as clever as he wants us to think. I remembered back a while when there was a troll who wrote a few messages upside down!
Like this>>> ¡¡ ʎɥsɐɹʇ uʍolɔ snɔɹıɔ ɐ ǝɹɐ noʎ
Here is 'Renneye' spelled normally....and here it is spelled with 2 upside down u's 'Renneye'
I think this is problem solved folks !! Be careful with your usernames. He can replace letters like the lower case L with a capital i, a capital O with a zero, and invert an n or u, to become your impostor.
My computer freezing up at the exact moment his impostor post happened, is a complete coincidence. As someone was kind enough to remind me of, OWS had several web problems over the last couple of days.
This is such a relief. Now, there is still the matter of him being able to divert you to an F-B-I website when you click on a reply or karma point.
Someone had a great suggestion that I should report Trashy to the F-B-I. This is a delicious thought....although something tells me they probably have been alerted to Trashy many times over and already have his info. Regardless, I have gathered several threads where the F-B-I diversion is happening, and I am hanging on to them. I will ponder what to do with them.
I will forward this 'now figured out puzzle' to jart. I'm sure admin will be happy that there has been no real breach of their system, and you all can post now, knowing that Trashy cannot 'steal' your monikers from the system. But please be aware that he can manipulate letters to become your impostor.
I will need to come up with a username that has letters in it that can't be manipulated. Perhaps something entirely different. I will let you know. Happy posting everyone !!
Here is the upside down website I found. There are several, but this one translates it very quickly. Enjoy !!
Original post starts here:
Thrasymaque has reached a new level of technological ability with this forum.
Two days ago my username of 'Reneye' was censored. I inquired with admin but didn't receive a reply. Understandably they were very busy taking care of the attack on the forum. So I just started a new username of Renneye. This is the third Renneye type name I have had to use as, Thrasy has gotten me censored several times now.
He has hijacked my moniker of "Renneye" and posting as though he is me. I think he did this as his character 'JoeWinters' or 'GailSummers'.
THESE ARE NOT FROM ME! I did not post these;
[[ [-] 1 points by Renneye (7) 5 minutes ago I'm the real Reneye. Thrish Trash! You stupid little OWS hater. Everyone knows you're the fake one! Now, leave me alone! ]]
[[[-] -1 points by Renneye (7) 15 minutes ago I only talked about the "elite", the Illuminati, and satanic baby eating and blood sucking politicians... I NEVER talked about reptilian overlords! ↥twinkle ↧stinkle reply permalink ]]
ALSO this from another poster;
[[ [-] 0 points by po6059 (71) 58 minutes ago joe winters "reply" within the renneye repost sends you to an FBI website, or at least it did until he changed it. ]]
I have no idea how this has happened except that as soon as he did so, my computer was disabled and froze. If indeed, he has acquired this capability, then this forum is not just disrupted, but is rendered completely disabled.
I have given private information to a couple of the people on this forum from back a ways, If anyone wants to know if this is the "real me". Thank goodness I did. I don't know how this is going to pan out if Thrasy can do this now. No-one is safe if he doesn't like your comments, he can take your moniker and do whatever he wants with it. Is there a way he can be shut down?
What to do?! Any thoughts?
EDIT: It just occurred to me that if he can do this, he may be able to PM anyone saying it is me. I won't PM anyone unless it is to people I have shared personal identifiable information with.
DKA, we've conversed on the forum before, but not on any PMS that I gave personal info to. I know you're inquiring about me, and I feel bad that I can't prove anything legitimate to you. I'll see if I can think of anything.
This may be it for me folks. I have a personal business project that I have to give my attention to and I was getting close to having to go anyway, but I just hate that I would have to leave this way. Hopefully something can be done about Thrasy. This is just too crazy. How did he do this???
