Curt, let me give you a clue here. First of all, I don't hide behind
an anonymous e-mail address or a fake name. What you see is what you
get. Also, I am an entertainer. I work because people call me on the
telephone to work for them. Because of this, my personal web page
has my contact phone numbers, my mailing address and lots of
information about me.
You, on the other hand, have something to hide and more importantly
something to fear. I don't know what it is and I don't care. I have
the distinct feeling that you would wet yourself and turn into a
large amoeba-like mass of jelly if someone posted your name, address
and phone number here. It would almost be amusing to imagine the
meltdown on your end if that were to happen.
Even if you use your own Linux box with an unused IP, your route can
be traced to the actual connection point where you enter the rest of
the World Wide Web (and Usenet). Add a tiny bit of port monitoring
software that can watch your every keystroke while you are on line
and you could see things get sticky. That includes capturing your
login details to your super secret aliasing sites and your port
forwarding sites. Know what the weak link is, mate? The fact that
you have to see every keystroke reflected back to your monitor as
you post it and then verify it as it is posted. Shame that. If you
could do it as a blind man would (impossible as computes have always
required verification of data), you'd never be traceable but vanity
does get in the way. Guys like you always have to see what they have
wrought. Sort of like an arsonist always watching his fires.
It would take less than 10 minutes to find your home address by
tracking your IP node while you were on line and active. It would
take a little longer, maybe an hour, to do it from the trace
evidence you have left behind here and in other places.
I wish I had the requisite skills to do so. OTOH I've often wondered
whether this is considered to be proper online behavior by the servers.
IIRC the person that outed Jepperson (can't remember his name) stopped
submitting here shortly therafter. Could he have been asked to leave?
I'd be grateful for an answer. Thank you.

While Curt would probably run away in abject horror at his personal
details being displayed here for all to see, it's simply bad form to
do that when someone goes through the effort of remaining anonymous.
There are valid reasons for doing so and making it your mission to
"out" those who seek privacy is just not a good way to stop what
he's doing. The better way is to bring him around and away from his
belligerence by teasing him a bit. It probably wouldn't hurt to
simply ask him to be less annoying. If he's really a modeler, he
probably will do just that. If he simply wants to disrupt the
newsgroup, let him try. He can only do so much before he simply runs
out of folk who take the time to reply to him.
Regarding his exact location, if Curt wants to let everyone know he
lives just east of the Hudson River in New York, that's his
business. He can let them know himself. I'm not going to be the one
to tell you <cough - cough>.
Thank you Ray. Of course (ahem), I was never considering outing curt
myself. I was simply bemoaning the fact that my computer skills are so
limited that I am unable to obtain such information (obviously only for
my personal edification (cough too)). East of the Hudson, eh? I was
rather hoping for North of the Red River. I guess hypotheses are meant
to be disproven.
I hope no one minds if I also touch on a related matter. Hasn't curt's
writing technique deteriorated in the last few days? I originally
thought this was an attempt to throw us off his identity as S.J. As he
may not abide in Oklahoma, however, it is probably a result of the
strain of trying to maintain two disparate personalities. Alas, it was
such a nice hypothesis.
Thanks again for your prompt reply.
Yes it has, Curt has only been typing with one hand for most of this week.
His mom bought him a new jar of vasoline so he has been quite busy with the
other hand. Once he runs out he'll get things back to normal.
You'll get better as time goes on. Chalk this up to being a noob- you'll get
smoother with the fake names/accounts as you roll forward. Remember the
first time the minister brought you home for that "special" evening? It was
awkward and probably not what he hoped for. As time went on you got better
and better. Same thing will happen here!
I'm proud of you- you have done your third post as trainspeeddemon Curt! You
are on a roll!
I'd say wait a few hours before you post as Curt again- looks better that
way. That will give you a few hours to clean the skid marks off your chair
before mom finds them and cancels your boy's life subscription!
Steve you are faking trainspeed as me and using a fake name yourself
and a fake name for your other fake name Newton. How much time do you
spend doing all this.
With all the free accounts out there anyone can post as anyone. I am
me. And you and your fake names like "Brad" who showed up out of
nowhere to replace you on the exact same nonsense huh how did that
You are all sinning (lying is a sin) and I am still praying for you
each day. Amen
I notice you both like to post around the same time in the morning.
Yesterday you posted as trainspeeddemon at 5:50am Pacific. Today you post as
that molested choir boy at 5:48am.
I also notice you 2 are the only ones who put their remarks above the quoted
comments. Do you actually think anyone is buying this bullshit?
More tips for you:
-Dump the trainspeeddemon account- it was well intentioned, but backfired
-When using your new fake account try to log in from a public hot spot, or
maybe grab some free wifi from your neighbors- will help with your IP, you
wont look so obvious.
-Create a log, schedule your fake name activity opposite of your primary
religious wacko account.
Last tip- stay away from boys under 18.
The pain and abuse you suffered as a young boy is no excuse for your
behavior here. I realize that after your stitches healed there was still
emotional healing that had to happen- please don't use this forum to work
through your pains.
Yep! Fun to watch though! He will get a little better here as we train him..
the fake posts will at least sort of look like they came from someone else.
Shame what he went through- this is another case of the Church sweeping
garbage and scandal under the rug- only to have it show up in usenet.
