Apologies to the group

Post by golfbum1 » Fri, 29 Mar 2013 03:01:10


It seems that someone, over the last few days, has hijacked my yahoo
account and was posting under that account to some of the subjects
here, mainly about Tiger Woods. I have contacted yahoo, who has
deleted the messages for the past 48 hours. That account is now
deleted and the same one reconstructed using gmail instead.
Apparently, someone on this group has no brass to post what they want
to say with their account and it's just as apparent that yahoo does
not have the security needed to protect its accounts.
I'm not a big Tiger fan but I save wrath like was posted about him,
for the right wing. ;-)

Whatever has happened it's still going on.  Note the next two posts
ostensibly from you.

One is responding to Moderate, the other to me.  Both have the same
message...posted within three minutes of each other.

Both have the same posting account:

1rmaQgoAAAAZHGIEf1mNW8okKb4reVPg
1rmaQgoAAAAZHGIEf1mNW8okKb4reVPg

But...one has a posting host  ip of 174.58.236.54, from Florida
The other has a posting host ip of 74.115.1.237, from Washington
state.

The ip from Florida is Spangler's.

Yahoo told me they traced the ip on both my old account and it matched
the ip address on "a participant" of this group. They are watching my
old account and the other "participant" which has been flagged for
abuse. They would give me no further information and I don't need it.
I have my suspicions and without saying anything I don't have proof
of, you would think people in Florida would be on the golf course
instead of on the internet.;-)

Looks like a Comcast account from the Summerfield, FL area. Summerfield is
basically in the middle of nowhere.

Well, that figures. The moron will do anything to get a bit of
attention. Except spell properly, of course.
