    Angry Caution!! Email Troller On These Boards!

    Some kid emailed me late last week asking about my Carputer I had on here for sale. He starts asking me the standard 20 questions. Then the questions faided away from the system I was selling and strait into....

    How do I do this, How do I do that, what should I use, will this monitor work, should I go this way or that way and why not? how do I wipe my ***.

    18 emails later, and he's now getting defensive when I suggest he do a little research before trying to set up a system.

    I won't give his email address but his shortened name is N. DelMoore. If he starts emailing you just be for warned, he just wants you to teach him EVERYTHING!
    Tell him to

    Holy crap that sucks man! I made the mistake of giving out my IM addy to a very good customer, offering to help him get his printer up and running. I never really did hear back from him, but I DID hear from his friend, who hijacked his account, and picked up my name along with it.

    He starts messaging me as if he were the original customer, then when I pick up on something being off, confesses about how he got my addy. I was a little perturbed, but he was funny to yak with, so I let it slide. BIG mistake. Suddenly, after telling me all about his "job" as a Network Admin (in caps because he described it as the bestest job in the whole computer field), and about how many computers he runs on a Beowulf network at home, he begins asking me about "how to hack".

    Internally my response was "???????". Conversing with him for a few more days, I realized that if this clown actually did work in some company's IT department, I needed to find out where it was so I could be ready when they fired him for sheer stupidity. It was his intention to "hack a Unix computer". I brought my friend and co-worker in on the convo, and we gave him a few polite pointers about how it's not worth doing if he even has to ask "how to hack a computer". After not listening to either of us for two days, my friend suggested pointing him to a site where with a free shell account, people can attempt to hack a Unix system. I don't know much about that end of things myself, but according to my friend, anyone who can gain root access to this particular machine gets to claim a hefty cash prize. Off hacker boy goes to seek his fortune.

    End of story? Oh hell no! NOW he wants to know all about not just hacking, but hacking THAT system! We started ignoring his posts, and then one day, he discovered the try2hack website. He raved about it for like three days straight, then started hammering each of us with questions about how to beat THAT thing!!! We both ended up just blocking him. He was like a Jack Russel terrier, boinging up in our faces bugging us constantly.

    I feel your pain my man! I would simply create a quick and dirty rule in your mail client to bounce back his emails, and call it done. Maybe he'll get the hint, or maybe he'll just get confused about it and figure you deleted your mail account or something stupid. Sounds like he doesn't know a whole lot anyhow. I'm not one to get down on teh n00bs, but I can't stand the ones that refuse to get up and actually learn something for themselves. Hell, I found this website right here after I had already made some headway on my first project!

    Oh well. Time for another Valium.
