Innocent Man's Life Destroyed by Anonymous Topix Poster - ABC News

Mar 26, 2012 | Posted by: JCook | Full story: abcnews.go.com

Stookey went to work but discovered unmasking anonymous Internet posters wasn't easy. Then he learned of the one key piece of information he needed: the Internet Protocol (IP) address, a unique fingerprint left by every device that accesses the Internet.

"Once you get the IP address, you can go to your telephone companies and say, 'Give me the telephone number it comes back to, along with the name and address of the person who owns that telephone number,'" Stookey said.

Can't really say I'm surprised by the hypocrisy.
I have a friend checking into the law pertaining to posting pictures of babies on topix without permission.
Posting pictures of a mentally disabled child in an adult body. I have been advised how very dangerous this was and would be handled in a different manner.
You do not put our kids in danger because you are having a melt down.
It is unacceptable and I will not stop.

I've never complained about reporting. Never complained about having a sock zapped.

I'm referring to people who call those that report names for reporting, then turn around and mass report people in the same breath.

Don't judge. It's normal to pretend to be a guy who pretends to be a teen girl who cybers pedos for fun and sometimes a guy needs to dress up in his girl suit so he can prop someone ;-)

You sure do...lmao
You reported me til you couldn't report anymore, for something I didn't even do.
In fact I tried to get along with you and keep you out of something that didn't even concern you.
But you insisted on coming at me time and time again.
You never apologized for falsely accusing me, but hey, your a big bad troll and why should a hypocrite such as yourself ever say you're sorry for anything rite.
Suck it up pooper. You play troll expect to be trolled

So why don't you just STFU and stay out of it.
Go log back into Kesla and have yourself a propfest, Kreep.
I'd pay admission just to hear the defense read the transcripts of her hilltarded post.
Comedy at it's best.

Kevin, I know there are times I really shouldn't voice my opinions. I'm not disciplined enough at times to stay out of things that don't actually concern me.

May I ask, why did you prop that post with the Kelsa15 account?

That's right NorCal. I have good reason to believe, now at this point, some made clones of my accounts and PM'd a good number of others and that is part the reason for the hell I've endured out here.

It doesn't matter anymore, as I'm nearly over the abuse I've taken and I made enough mistakes in my manner of handling it, but ... blah blah blah.

Good Night :)
