DramaSec Lite: Spamboy and The Butthurt Kid

Been awhile since we had one of these, eh? But been quite a week for it (I’ll share the rest later). After basically having retired from volunteering in the support forums for several weeks, this popped up on the radar today. First, I commented on another blogger’s post about a spammer, then the spammer spam-liked all my comments and made some kind of insult which the blogger immediately wiped. Then spamboy send me a message via my contact form:

You like his blog so much I thought you might also like what he said about you when he thought you were his enemy. As I said, just a troll. And you are little better. https://andykaufmanskavalkadekrew.wordpress.com/2015/02/20/wordpress-support-volunteer-speaks-out-tushy-when-answering-support-request/

To which I naturally replied that I have gotten death threats from ISIS, and that sort of thing doesn’t bother me. Spamboy wasn’t happy with that, though, so he took it to the technical support forums where, as I said above, I have been largely absent for some weeks.

    Dear WP admins,

    So can any “blogger” claim they are a “help” here in the support forum and use this place to paste their “help links” everywhere to gain whitehat SEO like timethief does? Or is she special and the only blogger allowed to hawk these forums and “gain” her page ranking in this way?

    The blog I need help with is aopinionatedman.com.

    I want to know about that too!

  3. Hi there,

    Thank you for your message on the contact form, and also for the personal insults on that other blogger’s blog. As I said to you via email, I have gotten death threats from ISIS and your butthurt is of no interest to me.

    If you wish to follow the recommended procedure, please fill out this form and stuff it up your ass. Your swollen head fits up there, so I know there’s a lot of room.

  4. For staff: spamboy, the OP, is posting in the technical forum because he lost a war in somebody’s comments section, and his mommy was unable to soothe him:https://andykaufmanskavalkadekrew.wordpress.com/2015/04/21/opinionated-man-enbraces-title-of-expert-cyberbully/#comment-13285

Thoughts. Of a Genius???

It’s funny, but the days volunteering in the forum is awful have something in common with the days when working in the forum is hilarious. That thing? The presence of complete morons.

EG the following conversation, tagged (with apparent sincerity) “Thoughts of a genius.”

 

A conversation with Jesus

    Oh, How I wish to forgive and just forgive
    So I be at peace, in relief
    To target an area in heart of hopelessness
    With a hand that digs out in me forgiveness
    So I myself as well be granted happiness
    Finding it hard due to some carelessness

    I had a conversation with Jesus one night
    Who he himself whispered good news in my ears
    Brought about solutions to let disappear my fears
    He indulged me in tunes by singing lyrical vibes of Mathew 6 verse 14
    I danced to the rhythm yet never thought of stopping nor pausing
    He told me forgiveness is an act of intention
    An alarm or signal towards the perception of reality
    Without a gun on my head but it being voluntarily

    This is a tale of a line between the perpetrator and the victimized
    Where the victimized abandons the negativity of emotions
    Rehabilitating the perpetrator purposefully forgetting sadism
    Ultimately seeing light in the tunnel of possible reconciliation
    Withdrawing from the strings of hatred that has us by our tongues and fingertips
    Withdrawing from future plans of vengeance

    With his voice of tough love, firm but loving, told me
    Forgiveness is a lifting of a burden suppressing the life within
    And yet a contradiction between forgiving and forgetting
    For memory and heart is photographic
    For the heart is sacred than the mind controversial as it should be
    For with peace seeking through introspection and
    Forgiving no eye shall be prohibited to see

    I may not be looking forward to calling you a friend
    Or invite you for lunch or a sip of coffee
    I may not be looking forward to welcoming you inside my home
    Or inside my heart for that matter
    But I’m definitely looking forward to letting my heart be at peace
    He made me realise that we should forgive ourselves
    For not forgiving others in the journey of finding healing
    Emphasizing that a good heart does not await an apology
    Though it taketh a good man to accept it
    It taketh a great man to maketh an apology

    The blog I need help with is mcgeniusthepoet.wordpress.com.

Attention Edward Snowden: INCOMING!

Well, this should end well.

Flounce Bingo, the national game of the Internet

Flounce Bingo, the national game of the Internet

There are some people the internet will miss, and me as well. And then there are some who…well…

So, I’m an admin in a hacker group on Facebook. This is challenging enough with people who are real, rather than made-up personas, and who speak English rather than some garbled patois known only to troll forums, intelligible only to RealGirls and other similarly mentally-challenged persons or entities. But not everyone who is there is real, sane, fluent in English, or respectful of boundaries.

Since I am identifiably and undeniably female on Facebook, those persons feel that I must be the most welcoming, friendly, helpful, and empathic admin.

This is a mistake.

Here is one of them. Let’s mock him, shall we?

Via completely, utterly unsolicited private message on Facebook:

Well, gee. Glad I could help.

Edward, you’re welcome.

Oh Sweet Jeebus There’s Another

Ugh.

STOP BULLYING THE ELDERLY, WORDpress

  1. Please stop rejecting my passwords. I don’t care if you don’t think my password is not secure. I am OLD, & it is more important that I can remember it. Trust me, it’s fine. STOP BULLYING THE ELDERLY!

    The blog I need help with is notmayberry.wordpress.com.

  2. STOP BULLYING THE ELDERLY!

    Are you kidding me? What’s with this ageism nonsense? We can learn new things right up until the day we passover. I’m not buying into that because there is no evidence that the vast and overwhelming number of seniors are not mentally competent and have memory issues. In fact the numbers of seniors who have memory issues are low.

    STOP POSING AS A VICTIM!

    Only passive aggressive manipulators pose as victims under the guise of being bullied and make demands for special treatment based on ageism.

    In fact the password setting requirements are the same for all of us bloggers regardless of age and infirmity. Note my gray hair and know I’m also a senior. My advice is either get with the program as I have done or find anther hobby.

  3. If you have lost your log-in information you can visit https://en.wordpress.com/wp-login.php?action=lostpassword

    The weakest point in any security for your online accounts is usually your password. Traditional Passwords Are No Longer Safe. For Selecting a Strong Password see herehttp://en.support.wordpress.com/selecting-a-strong-password/

  4. What a jerk you are timethief! Go get some meds for your personality disorder. Shut up; your replies are mean & useless.

    I have been using the same password on WordPress for 3 years. I want to keep using it. Suddenly WordPress rejects it because , ” I have used it before”. WordPress is constantly telling me I am not signed into my account when I am signed in.

    Apparently, there is no way to give feedback to WordPress, except via trolls like timethief in this forum? Bad idea.

  5. I have been using the same password on WordPress for 3 years. I want to keep using it. Suddenly WordPress rejects it because , ” I have used it before”. WordPress is constantly telling me I am not signed into my account when I am signed in.

    Oh so now that your posing as a victim routine replete with using ageism as a manipulative tool to get special treatment got you nowhere, you prove you can communicate like everyone else. You could try emailing support@wordpress.com

  6. Nobody is bullying you because you are elderly. If you are being bullied, it’s probably because you are an unintelligent drama queen.

  7. REDACTED

    See, when you whine and plead privilege, this is what you get. Spam. Great work there.

  8. Hi there,

    Sorry to hear that you think WordPress.com was bullying you. The only reason why we ask for a secure password is to prevent hackers from gaining unauthorized access to your account. When such happens, there’s a chance that your personal data and blogs may be stolen, and even bigger problems may occur as a result. I think that this little sacrifice on your part would prove beneficial in the long run. Thanks for your understanding.

  9. druesome, I know you’re a much, much nicer person than me. I’d just like to say that I hope WP is treating you right. To get me to respond politely to this rant…I don’t think the budget exists.

    Selah.
