    Cool Board Stiff Vindicated

    Hello All Merbites,
    If you have been following what has been going in the last few days concerning my banishment and reinstatement, you will know that something was fishy. Every other time I was punished or received a short banishment, I accepted what I did and moved on. However, this time, I was completely railroaded, framed, set up around some type of IP-related conspiracy.
    My so-called acquaintance EGB/LCS/Tony was clearly the user who created the handles TerePele, SirSamsung, and I Swim in Money. In fact, he admitted it. Those perceptive members will know that I don`t write like that. If I do ever have spelling mistakes, someone like Regnad kindly tells me to fix them.
    I believe I deserve an apology from Mod 5, who railroaded me into banishment, without any proof. Banning me without any publicly acknowledged evidence is grounds for his dismissal. At first, I thought it was a member-turned-mod that had an ax to grind with me, but after my research this week regarding his identity, I now know who he is and know he has no past personal issue with me, just fabricated IP evidence that other Mod`s passed on to him. Here is the thread where he blamed me for the other handles, he changed it to reflect my innocence: https://merb.cc/vbulletin/showthread...593#post139593
    It was apparent to all that I was banned right after the closing of the Hamas thread, where I expressed poignant, controversial statements that were based on my facts and my perceptions. Mod 5 telling me and other posters to post both sides of the argument makes absolutely no sense. What is the point of a debate/political thread if everyone has to express both sides of the fence? It is clear that the Hamas thread touched a personal chord with Mod 5 and he should have repudiated his position as Mod for that thread and backed out.
    There have been many egregious mistakes made by the administration here lately, regarding free speech and their own concept of how to apply it. This is a very upsetting future for MERB that I see, however, as a privately owned board, they can act as they wish.
    As for me future, I will continue my avant garde, progressive approach to stream of consciousness posting that I have cultivated over my short, but tumultuous time on Merb.

    Thank you to all the veteran posters who listened to me and understood my position. Some of you came forward and helped get the truth out. Thank you very much. You have proven that the people in this community are the true marvelous resource here, not the moderators, agency owners, SP`s or snazzy V Bulletin board messaging systems.

    Wink Board "Nelson Mandela" Stiff

    Vive la liberte!! I'm not sure what that means but I have a feeling it applies.
    "I can picture every move that a man could make
    getting lost in her loving is your first mistake

    Sometimes I think its a sin
    When I feel like I'm winning when I'm losing again"

    This particular note, I have to come out of the cave and mention one thing.
    I did PMed Mod5 when I noticed that BS was banned using multiple handles (Terepele, I swim in money, etc...) telling Mod5 that I know for a fact that TerePele and I swim in money is not Board Stiff to provide more information to him/her/them.
    I never got any reply on that PM from Mod5 but I see BS is unbanned so all is well
    *now I am going back to the cave*

    Cool

    Oliver and others,
    I have a feeling Mom 5 begrudgingly let me back in. He doesn't like me obviously.
    I know who was the most instrumental in helping me back in, but I will let her/his anonymity remain. However, Oli, I am sure your PM to mom 5 was important too, because you have an untarnished character on these boards. So, thank you friend and thank you to OL, mr self deprecation.
    Mom 5 knew there was absolutely no evidence, yet he chose to remain biased.
    Very unprofessional, and his silence in this thread is telling.
    What he should do, to clear his tarnished reputation, is to explain to MERB in this thread, what evidence he had against me.
    Interesting that Fred Zed didn't reply to my two emails to him....

    BS, can you please explain how egb/lcs/tony created these accounts that somehow ended up looking like they came from you? ie where did these events occur? also, i get the impression that you and tony are on the 'outs'...is that correct?

    Also in my opinion but you seem to be looking for a fight with Mod 5. Try to realize that he's just doing the best job he can in trying to keep the board under control.

    Cool

    Bread,
    I have no idea why my IP address would be mistaken, it is something you should ask Mod 5.
    As for picking a fight, the fight was already picked by Mod 5 when he chose to besmirch my name.
    And no, I am not on the outs with Tony, I like him in person alot, but he didn't come to my defense, although I don't know how he would have since he is always a new handle here.

    Cool

    Mod 5,
    1) You don't seem to understand that I did nothing wrong. How can that be a second chance? I know for a fact that you are trying to nail me for any transgression, and I know for a fact that you only let me back in because of the overwhelming response of senior members. To me, that is just a lack of dignity.

    2) You still have not admitted YOUR mistakes in this matter, you didn't even give me a chance to answer the claims that you banned me for. Admit your wrongdoing and I will get off your case. You were plain wrong and no one will say it, but your reputation took a serious hit. Lay off of me and respect people's differences of opinions, especially politics, no matter how outlandish or diametrically opposed to them you may be. Moderate, don't dictate.

    What you don't seem to understand is I gave you a second chance.
    If Board Stiff did not do anything wrong in this instance, why does he need a "second chance"?

    If he did nothing wrong then it would be a case of reinstating him as he would have been banned by error. (This in no way would reflect on what he may or may have not done on other instances.)

    Ronnie,

    They will forget what you said,
    they will forget what you did,
    but they will never forget the way you made them feel.

    Cool

    Thank you Ronnie. Finally a rationale thought on this matter.

    If Board Stiff and Tony have had any kind or contact whether by instant messenger or e-mail, it would have been quite easy for Tony to obtain and then spoof B.S.'s ip address. Board Stiff may get under people's skin at times but he has never been one to shy away from saying what he wants to say. It would be totally out of character for him to use an alias to make nuisance posts.

    I also see no reason why the removal of his ban should be considered a "second chance" as he did nothing wrong to deserve being banned in the first place.

    It is a little more complex

    Hi guys,

    First some disclosure: First, I have met Tony once and I like him personnally although I strongly think his crusade would be better served using other techniques than the one he is using. Second, I work in computers since so many years that when I started I was using punch cards and the IBM PC was still a dream.

    Every Internet user knows that our privacy is threatened in so many ways. You can read this excellent column http://redtape.msnbc.com to learn more. Therefore some techniques are needed to protect our anonymousity.

    I will be intentionnaly vague about some of the details. Not that I don't know them but because I don't want this as a tutorial on how to screw up the system. Please don't even think about PMing me for further details. It would be a total waste of perfectly good electrons ....

    When you access the internet your computer will talk to another computer using the IP protocol. This protocol allows the Internet to send your requests to the proper computer and make sure that computer response comes back to your computer and nowhere else. You have to know that many millions computers are part of this network so this protocol is really really important. It is also good to know that IP protocol is location independant meaning it could very well be located in Russia even if it is a Montreal site.

    Most of Internet users have two erroneous beliefs: Their location on the Internet (IP address) is fixed and that you always have direct access to the target computer.

    Your IP address is not cast in stone. It can change. For those who want more details http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dynamic...ation_Protocol. Your IP address is not your computer DNA.

    Now the even lesser known thing: You can access WEB sites using another computer as a "broker". This "broker" will access one your behalf WEB sites. The accessed WEB site will never know about your computer, only about the "broker".

    It is possible that if I would use the same "broker" as Tony uses(BTW he uses a lot of so called "brokers") the WEB site would think I am Tony.

    In conclusion, I hope this post helped you understand a little bit better the IP world. It has been a while since I could contribute therefore I would be happy if it helps.

    More important Technically it is very possible that Board Stiff is telling the truth. He might have stumbled or be a victim of some computer wiz .. BTW Tony since I am sure you read this post please PM me next time you visit the Gent. I'll make sure I am there.

    Just shows you how screwed up the legal system is, OJ Simpson was found innocent therefor the civil claim against him should have been illegal.
