I am sure some of you remember the recent episode where someone registered as "SNN Fucked a Monkey" (or similar) and posted offensive images on the forum.

We had problems finding out who the person behind these offenses was because he was behind a proxy - or so the offender thought.

In reality, though, most proxy services exist to let you browse websites that would otherwise be blocked due to firewall restrictions and whatnot. Looking a little closer, you will even find that most of them have policies against abuse.

Please know that we log all access attempts, so it is possible for us to go back and see what page views a certain IP address has performed and when.

Now, with these two things in mind, I simply sent an e-mail to the owner of the proxy service containing data related to the offending user, and after a small exchange, I got his IP address.

And the user turned out to be Maxwell.

The moral of the story is that we do not want to put up with attacks like these, and we will put effort into finding the person behind them, and there will be consequences.
Wow, I never though he'd be that stupid.


Stupid as in "not knowing that proxies don't give you absolute protection".

--------------------
I was shocked when I saw Maxwell. I thought he will never do idiot stuff.
Looks like we'll never get to see his hack.

And I really didn't expect him to do that.

This is the best 1000th post ever. Of all time.

Also, yeah, Maxwell really did that out of nowhere. Oh well.

I never thought Maxwell would do anything like that, he didn't seem like a bad user. Guess I was wrong.Free counters!
*gasp*

*muttering*

*rhubarb soap opera background character mutter*
Goes to show that some people can be stupid without others knowing it. :/
Well, that was surprising. :|

I honestly didn't expect him to do that, and now, I am disappoint.

He was a good user, I wonder why he turned...

It was really the proxy failed, it was Maxwell who failed.

According to him, he "meant no personal harm to myself or Kieran" and "did it as a joke". These are the kind of jokes which are not acceptable on this site.

Anyway, this should not turn into a "bash Maxwell" thread. This should be a note that if you rereg and act maliciously, you will be caught.

Seriously, all (most) of us are here because we have some involvement with hacking SMW. Instead of wasting your own time and my time with unfunny, stupid jokes, why not be productive?
If a person acts stupidly or plays a prank that is simply not funny, that person will get caught. Some people say the Internet is a justice-free zone, but, based on this, I can't help but disagree.
Not knowing Maxwell at all, I am consequently more interested, and impressed, at the methods used to find him. Pretty clever. Well, maybe not clever. I don't know, it was interesting to read though.

Maxwell used to come on the IRC to get help for his hack etc. and he really didn't seem all that bad, pretty friendly actually, so [email protected] all this.

Guys this kind of stuff happens because a lot of people on the site keep making jokes about some users, specialy S.N.N. (like this one) which is completely ok as long as it only happens from time to time because everyone likes to laught and S.N.N. doesn't see it like an ofense or anything.

However, everything has it's limits, and if it happens too often people will belive they can say anything they want about S.N.N. and they will confuse insults with jokes like Maxwell did. Also this is not the first time something like this happens, I've seen several newbies getting banned because they started threads with titles like "S.N.N. is gay".

I know what maxwell did was wrong, and I think he deserved to be punished, but all of us as a comunity should make an effort to prevent this kind of stuff. I'm not saying "stop making jokes about S.N.N. and other people", I'm just sayin we should make it less often to prevent this kind of stuff.

tl;dr: Try not to make a generic joke each time you talk about S.N.N.
There goes his awesome hack, and me beta testing it to boot. =(

I'd never would have expected Maxwell to do this. I was wondering why was he banned. There goes his hack. (I'm questioning HOW kieran went through the proxy. Maybe the proxy failed.)
