SCAM ALERT! "Urgent notice" e-mail.
    #2605549 - 04/26/04 06:30 PM (12 years, 7 months ago)

Anyone registered on the Dark Underbelly forums probably received one or both of the following e-mails. While appearing authentic, they fortunately are a scam. None of the administrators are facing any legal action and at the moment we have no reason to believe any accounts were compromised on this site or TDUB. However, please check back for more details as we uncover them. At any rate, it's not necessary to burn your computer or move to Mexico. Sorry for the scare!

My last email was not a joke. The DEA has seized all our records and has installed a monitoring program on the server. This is the same for Shroomery since Vampire999 is an admin there aswell. We are wanted because of a few DDOS attacks we organized against people we hate. Sorry that we got everyone else caught up in it. Please PM Shroomery admins to have your posts/accounts deleted there.



Thank you,

The shroomery is currently under a distributed denial of service attack. I would assume the attack is in coordination with the above emails.

That is SO fucking lame. This community has gone through too much for people to be fucking around like that. Shame on whomever perpetuated this shit.

I received this email and my initial read of it had my stomach in my throat. At least it isn't true....

Except for the part about the DEA arresting people for hacking, and MND "confessing" to a crime in a bulk email from a server that had already been seized by the DEA.

sadly, it's about money, control and power as usual. the shroomery has an enormous number of members, and so it can host sponsors banners to generate revenue. this generates jealousy from competitors, some of whom do not have moral boundaries. there was recently a bustup involving a former administrator, who seems to have hacked into accounts and started his own venture, trying to lure away moderators and other seasoned members of the online mushroom community.

not content with stealing documents, spreading misinformation and poaching staff, he is now apparently sinking so low as this recent scaremongering. i hope he can live with himself - you know who you are, i'm not gonna name you, please show a little respect. there are people less tolerant than me who would gladly (use your imagination) for this kind of lowlife activity. it is important that all shroomery members are circumspect in their posts to prevent people like this from fucking us over.

makes you think, frown, and feel sorry for the perpetrators doesn't it? oh well, what goes around comes around.

> there was recently a bustup involving a former administrator

Although this person mentioned may be upset enough to do such an act, I personally have no reason to believe that this is the case. (I also do not have any reason to believe this is not the case.) I am not trying to defend anybody, but rather would like to remind people not to jump to conclusions.

> what goes around comes around

Indeed

okay, 3D, i meant you. happy? i was trying to keep everyone's names clean.

i don't think there was any slander involved. please cease your harassment of this community. you severed your ties and lost many friends here by your recent actions and public lack of distancing yourself from the actions currently underway (basically equivalent to condoning them, since everyone knows your history).

i'm not speaking for anyone but myself by saying this, but i have lost my respect for you recently. good luck in your new endeavour. now be a man, and walk away. ok?

First let me say that I have nothing to do with the attacks, nor anything to do with what happened at TDUB.  The admins here have shown zero proof either way, it's all speculation on the part of the people who don't like me here.  I've been a regular user of this site since '99, I've made many friends here who I still speak with, and I will continue to visit this site until I feel like leaving.  I've contributed more to this site than 98% of the people here, yet I get zero credit for that.  I had the SWAT team raid my apartment when I lived in PHX because of a pissed off Shroomerite.  I had fully automatic rifles with laser sights pointed at my head.  Did any admin here offer to help out legally when this happened? Fuck no they didn't. The people who are talking shit about me have been here for less than a year and don't know even 10% of the whole story.

In a way I feel bad that the site is being attacked, because I sure wouldn't want it to happen to me.. but I also somewhat don't feel bad, due to the things that a few admins here did to me.

If you think I'm jealous of the Shroomery, then you have a thing or two to learn.  Sure my site is small, but it will grow... however the Shroomery is TOO large.  Posts get buried quickly and there are an abundance of idiots running around... something I can do without.

You want to talk about morals?  Then lets talk about Thor, Ythan, geokills, papaver, matts, Vampire999 and Anno conspiring behind my back, accessing my personal email account, my personal accounts at different sites, hiring Vampire999 to break into the server to take the data, etc.  Is that morally right? or do you just look the other way because they are your friends?

Vampire999 allows mndfreeze to kick/ban me from chat anytime he feels like it, and he also allows mndfreeze to give out my home Ip address, and requests that people DDOS it.  But of course you wouldn't know about that because you'd rather stay blind to the facts, since you are mad at me for something I didn't do.

Please show me how I have 'hacked' into accounts here...

Yes I started my own venture, so that I could help pay off the Shroomery's old hosting contract, which I am still stuck with until August.  I in no way tried to lure away moderators or seasoned members, but if they want to moderate/visit my site aswell and/or leave this site, more power to them.  They are allowed to do that, as this is a somewhat free country.  Maybe they come to my site since it is a breath of fresh air.  Not a crowded place such as this.  Most of the great cultivators/moderators/admins here leave because they get fed up with this place for one reason or another.

Quote:

I used a few worthy posts from this site at mine, but so does every other website in the OMC.  Shroomery itself has used countless articles from other sites... so what is your point?  There are many scripts you use here every single day that were written, at least in part, by myself.  Should I get my panties in a wad because the current admins are still using them?

Please show me where I spread misinformation.

Quote:

And now you are trying to scare me by saying that some shroomery members are going to come kick my ass?  Come on now.  Let them come knock on my door, I'll have my shotgun ready.

That's true for EVERYONE, not just myself.
