Some of you may remember a guy called DD. Ring a bell with any of you?
Now those who remember Deranged Dragon, do you recall who had the program
that ferreted out his home address? Or the name of the program?
Reason I'm asking is on another forum folks don't think that it is possible
to do that. I remember the guy posted a map showing the location of his
house. Maybe a Leo?
That goes back a bit, doesn't it. You can find the Phaedra thread here
or http://tinyurl.com/y9yaq5s .
I didn't read it all though, hope it is all you are looking for (becides
Damn. Good ole DD. I'm glad he was your buddy. I think I'll keep ole
Snofart over DD.
But I can't help you on the program. I never did know who had that.
You'd be happy as long as you had sombody to share the machine with. Of
course you and Snojob are neighbors.
Was looking around regarding DD. Found his info that I had written down, he
was in Wichita KS. Damned if I can find who had or what the trace tool was.
If you can get his IP address, you can determine which city
(sometimes) the person lives in. As to specific address, you need to
be able to convince the ISP to tell you, only they know, and usually
due to privacy issues, they don't tell.
Folks with static IPs are easier to trace, (but there are few of us,
I'm static) as dynamic IPs are reassigned from time to time by the ISP
to keep things mixed up some.
Interesting... AFAIK, there are many ways to hide one's information,
anonymous remailers are one example. Possibly before remailers, and
ISPs who don't post header information that Usenet is supposed to
have, it may have been possible.
I recall a similar situation on another group. A poster worked hard to
figure out who a certain poster was, while that poster worked just as
hard keeping his identity hidden.
It took almost a year to get it sorted out, mostly be good detective
work, in matching things the poster said, his location, and other
information. It was not a trivial task, and the people who worked out
who he really was were very good.
(Interestingly that abuser went away, never to surface again, mostly
because he keep saying "You'll never figure out who I am..." <bg>
If/when you learn more (I'll monitor this thread too...) let me know,
I'm very interested in what develops.
