Thank you. Is the ask question still down?

-- Dee (, March 01, 2000.



-- Chuck, a night driver (, March 01, 2000.

Yes Dee for awhile.

Unfortunately, she has a backspace key. Fortunately, her brains are lacking oxygen. Oh well.

Some of the other Sysops will keep watch for awhile. Gotta run.


-- Diane J. Squire (, March 01, 2000.

Thanks for your work, and your patience.

Did AOL take a look at all of those screen captures that I posted yet?

link to spam copies

I can continue to add to them if you like, but I would think that 20 full screens would be sufficient to convince them that she is a problem.

On several occassions she has crippled the server to the extent that I was not able to even get on the forum for several hours. According to the FBI, that is considered a DOS (denial of service) hacker attack, and is a serious crime. I spend a lot more time on this site than Yahoo or, so I think the disabling of this site should be considered no less important than those others.

Thanks again for all of your help, we will survive! :-)

Ditto Hawk - I've got a couple more screen shots myself, if the Sysops want them. However, as Anita said, without date/time stamps on these spams, these shots may not do much good.

Thanks anyway, Sysops!

-- Deb M. (, March 01, 2000.

Thank you SYSOPS! You're the best!

-- Dee (, March 01, 2000.

Deb, my posts DO have the dates on them, and I think just the fact that she did that many within one day should be sufficient evidence, even though they don't show the time.

-- Hawk (flyin@high.again), March 01, 2000.

Thank you to all the Sysops for their work.

I still wonder what it is that drives this person to continue. My being sane makes reaching an understanding regarding their motivation impossible. Oh well...

I complained after a spam attack maybe 10 days ago and listed the numbers you gave and had all the facts correctly detailed. A week later I got a stupid form letter back from AOL directed towards persons whose individual mailboxes are getting spammed. Hope one of you with more connections can get through to somebody higher up (like the FBI, maybe)

--How about spamming aol's server with repeat "please deal with this" information? Of course, I'm sure AOL gets hundreds of thousands a complaints a day, and they don't care, because people will still use them and buy their stock, all these emails go right into delete heaven I bet.. --another way to deal with it involves bering more--proactive, while "it" is online with a static IP, of course, that's only for academic and research purposes only...

Having trouble finding the on and off button, I cannot contribute to this thread other than to tell you what I dream: wouldn't it be neat if someone had the capability, that everytime LL's isp # hit the forum it was automatically sent to TPTB at AOL. Taz who has a rope if you can find the idiot!
