|| AngleWyrm, I strongly suspect that the
| garbage has *not* come from Kenneth
| at all.
|| The headers of Kenneth's article on my
| newsserver include:
|| Path: news.fore.com!uunet!ash.uu.net\
|| It appears that either frontiernet.net or
| giganews.com (I would guess at the
| former) spotted that the article didn't come
| from where it claimed to have done.
|| A quick (reverse) scan of that path
| suggests that (if it is true) the article
| started off in the USA, then made its
| way to Holland, then to Italy, then to
| Germany, then back to the USA.
|| I guess such a routing is *possible*,

| from "nntp.giganews.com.MISMATCH"
| downwards is bogus.
|| Try Googling for "HipCrime" or "Dipslime" -

I had nothing to do with this ab-use.
It's a bit more-complicated than following
'the trace', not in the least because all of
this B.S. assumes a 'life' of its own in
'cyberspace', and, within that, my Name
has been Libeled.
I've saved all of the correlated data, and,
if necessary, I'll Honor Truth in Court of
Law, where I'll have Power of Subpena,
which is the only circumstance in which
one can have any hope of unraveling this
sort of Jackass stuff [and even then, given
the sorry-'state' of things, such hope can
only be small. Which is not to assert that
the ab-use was not cracked in real-'time'.
It's a virtual-certainty that it was.]
It's easy to see, however, that some indiv-
idual or group is a bit "Desperate".
Perhaps the same folks who've been
quite-avidly trying to 'hack' into my Inet
The waste inherent takes one's breath
But, at the same 'time', it Teaches.
