collateral damage

Recommended Posts

I'm in mourning for the demise of all the provocative observations from regular members that were posted after January 11th, and were deleted along with the spam that attached itself to them. :mellow:

I guess white racists have to be ever vigilant in reminding Blacks how much contempt they hold for them. I can't imagine black people making a project out of going to a white site and saturating it with hate. We find better things to waste our time on. ;)

Cynique I thank you again for alerting me to the spam.

Spam is not really a strong enough word. It was a deliberate, premeditated and methodical attempt to destroy this discussion board. Spam is the automated stuff pushing Viagra; annoying but relative innocuous. What we witnessed Friday evening was malicious.

I admit Cynique I used a sledge hammer rather than a scalpel to eliminate the posts, and acknowledge that there was some collateral damage. I'm sorry about that. I also recognize that I probably did not catch everything.

SO IF ANYONE SEES A SPAMMER, PLEASE SEND ME THE ACCOUNT NAME.

Interestingly, after your email Cynique, I received another email from a regular poster who asked me to delete all of their messages and remove their account. Because it was a frequent poster i was a little surprised. The person made no mention of what took place on the discussion board.

After I visited the discussion boards, assessed the damage, and took corrective action it occurred to me the spam may have been the reason the person wanted me to remove all trace of their participation.

I told the person I can easily remove all of their posts (by that time I had plenty of practice), but if they wanted me to do so because of the "spammers" they were simply giving the "spammers" exactly what they wanted. I suggested that they reconsider. By that time I'd gotten rid of the crap that I saw.

The person admitted that was the spam was prompting them to leave and they reaffirmed their request erase all their posts. The person claimed that they received hundreds of racist emails on the discussion board.

I thought about countering that I doubt they actually received “hundreds” of the racists emails -- but even if they did, that could not compare to the hundreds of topics, posts, events, and messages I had to contend with. I erased that person.

I admit I was disappointed by their decision because it gave the spammers an easy win. I also have to admit that the person did not even care enough to tell me about the spam in the first place?!!

In the course of human events this whole thing was a non-event. However it did help me better appreciate, this Black history month, the Brothers and Sisters who actually made real sacrifices and deal with real racism so that we can have the liberties we enjoy today.

For that I thank the “spammers”.

Troy...not so quick.

I believe the person who says they received those threatening emails.

I am sorry. But I don't think the culprits are "White racists" and I don't think

it's just a coincidence that the moment I started posting about my upcoming book/tour

the NEW POSTERS just sprung up by the dozens and "at first" acted like normal people

with legitimate comments.

You had like 7 new people the day after I posted!

Each time I come back & post...there is an attempt to make it appear that I'm here

to wreak havoc with an array of sock puppets. ((I fully confess that in the past, mostly

years ago, I did indeed wreak such havoc--mainly to entertain myself and get people to

argue & fight over different social issues.)). But in the last 2 to 3 years, I have

not done that. I have had major illnesses and all kinds of energy-zapping processes.

I don't have time anymore. But whenever I do come back to the board, there is a major

attempt to drive me away or to make the people here call for my head.

What was different this time...nobody "Mimicked" my writing or paragraph

style like they usually do.

I also personally KNOW that "BookFan" hates it when any amount of credibility or positive

publicity link is posted about me---he usually rushes to post attacks & is greatly fearful

of web surfers liking or supporting me. He displays a vested interest in trying to discredit & slander me. In fact, he usually rushes in to claim that everyone is

Kola and it's Kola wreaking this havoc.

So again. I don't believe it's "White Racists" behind all this---and because these people

("BookFan" and those connected with him) certainly do Hack computers & spam email and

have a fixation on me---I think he's your culprit.

Nothing can wrest my mind from that.

I don't agree, Kola. I think the scammers are an organized skin head group who conduct cyber raids on black sites. They didn't personally single you out for abuse; they instead focused on Troy and Thumper, while randomly infesting the profiles of many other members

You let "bookfan" send you into a paranoid panic. I never pegged him as anyone more than a patronizing white liberal who finds you an object of curiosity, - someone who he also holds a degree of sympathy for in spite of being suspicious of. He did back off several of his challenges to you, the Angela Davis episode in particular. He's been around since Day One. and I don't think he's trying to throw us off when he posts articles of interest to black folks. BTW when, out of curiosity, I checked his profile yesterday it had been one of those corrupted with racist drivel by these scammers. "bookfan" once accused me of being anti-semitic and he's a PETA person, all of which why it's easy for me to not take him too seriously. ;)

Kola I did not say that the culprits were white racists. I called them spammers, I called the spam racist and it was.

But at the end of the day if it were racist skins heads, Kola Boof or Troy and Thumper haters it does not really matter to me -- I would have reacted the same way.

But you might be right, I just don't know and I'm not about to expend the energy to find out for sure.

Peace

Troy

LOL!!!

Anti-semetic.

I honestly don't see Cynique as Anti-anything.

Anyone who has followed this board for years will come to know that

Cynique always plays "devil's advocate."

If I started downing "Black Love"---Cynique would jump in with her

Dashiki, beads and Kumba wig.

LOL!

...you might be right [about bookfan being the racist spammer], I just don't know and I'm not about to expend the energy to find out for sure.

I did not see that one coming. Not from you, at least. It's your forum, so I'll leave.

Bookfan, I've always liked your post and contributions.

If you can some how manage to take something I wrote and figure out a way to misconstrue view it as a personal attack then maybe you should leave -- because the only alternative would be for me stop posting here.

Why would you misquote me like that when it is so easy to see what I actually wrote?

My apologies. I'm glad to hear you weren't telling Kola she might be right about me being the spammer. Should have given you the benefit of the doubt and asked for clarification.

So...what did you think she might be right about? Her only point appears to be that I am "the culprit." When you said you weren't willing to put in the time and effort to find out, I assumed you were talking about not wanting to check whether my ISP was the same as BigBuck's. It's no skin off my back if Kola says I'm a racist NSA agent, but I'd feel a little differently if somebody with credibility were endorsing that idea.

Not trying to argue with you about what you were thinking. It's just that I still don't see the still-unspecified thing you say is so easy to see. What were you talking about?

You sound like a little Bitch who's run out of Kotex, BOOK FAN.

Want one of my mine?

Oh that's right.

You're allergic to women who lack the credibility of your

favorite religious group--The Birthers.

Whine...whine....whine:

Oh TWOY---whatever did you mean??

Why would you suggest such a thing??

I'm leaving!

Twwooooooyyyyy

My life is all about harassing Kola but don't

compare me to herrrrr

Bookfan I re-read Kola's post in it's entirety and now see how you could draw that conclusion.

I was simply reacting to Kola's statement that it might not be White racists that were responsible. I did not even recall her mentioning you. I know my comments were not based upon you that is why I could respond with certainty about what I meant earlier today.

In any case, if it means anything, I do not have to check the IP addresses because I'd already banned the all of the ones belonging to the problemantic posters. As I was banning them I noticed several of the ID's came from a single address, but there were several used. It clearly was a concerted, planned and deliberate attack.

It would be interesting to know who was responsible and what their motivation was, but I really don't care that much.

I agree 100%. These doofus white cracker trolls often invade black sites to spew their Aryan psychosis and hate. In one site (Topix:Africanamerica), they ask questions like, “Why are black women so fat?”, “Why are black women so ugly?”, “Why do black women have so many illegitimate children?” Etc, etc…. Knowing such stupid questions are going to illicit a tidal wave of emotional responses. I even posted a statement telling blacks not to respond to such race baiting nonsense because it only feeds into their racist mischief. These juvenile minded crackers post incendiary questions, sit back, laugh and clap their hands with glee when Negroes heatedly respond to their mindless drivel. Even though I posted a warning not to, it didn’t matter because they could not help themselves and had to passionately rant and rave at these deliberate posts to incite. Thus, they keep feeding the pigeons and they continue to come back and post more racist trash statements and questions......
