There are many others who do this already. Why reinvent the wheel? If there is something I find that needs to be shared, it will be shared regardless. I pick my battles based on what I see needs to greater attention at the time.
While walking along a beach, an elderly gentleman saw someone in the distance leaning down, picking something up and throwing it into the ocean.
As he got closer, he noticed that the figure was that of a young man, picking up starfish one by one and tossing each one gently back into the water.
He came closer still and called out, “Good morning! May I ask what it is that you are doing?”
The young man paused, looked up, and replied “Throwing starfish into the ocean.”
The old man smiled, and said, “I must ask, then, why are you throwing starfish into the ocean?”
To this, the young man replied, “The sun is up and the tide is going out. If I don’t throw them in, they’ll die.”
Upon hearing this, the elderly observer commented, “But, young man, do you not realise that there are miles and miles of beach and there are starfish all along every mile? You can’t possibly make a difference!”
The young man listened politely. Then he bent down, picked up another starfish, threw it into the back into the ocean past the breaking waves and said, “It made a difference for that one.”
I’ve said it many times and I fear I will say it many more. Silence does not equate absence. I am always on the prowl, watching, observing, and researching my next target (and old ones which have resurfaced). I often go various spans of time inactive on Tumblr or Twitter. Most people follow fairly common patterns. They’re on Facebook, Twitter, and IRC at the same time. They do the same things at the same times every day. These patterns make it far easier to identify various aspects of a person. By constantly changing my “habits”, it becomes much more difficult for anyone to pinpoint my location or even identify me specifically.
Rest assured, if you message me on here, email me, or mention me on Twitter, I see and have read your message. I cannot always respond in a timely fashion, but I have read what you sent and I will handle it in due course.
For those of you who have inquired about my absence, you may notice an old target - www.isanybodydown.com - is down. In April of this year, following several attacks against them and several run-ins with Craig and Chance, they “announced” that the website was done for. Facts are facts. Craig can say what he wants, but the truth is that he lost his battle. His lousy attempts to start another similar project have failed, and he has resorted to creating his own Facebook page in hopes of getting “likes”.
Poor Craig. It’s sad, really. He won’t suffer at my hands what he so rightfully deserves. Nevertheless, one more tango down, millions more to go.
Forgive me for my silence. Personal life beckons my attention lately. Shoot me an email and we’ll discuss these issues. My name at outlook.com
A call to action.
If they refuse to take down the content, let me know. Hit me privately with a link and I’ll talk with the owner myself. He’s promised to cooperate and reform the site and its content, we’ll see if he holds true to his word.
CloudFlare is a content-delivery network (CDN). It merely keeps their content online in the event their server is unreachable. I’m fully aware of the details of the site and I’m even in contact with the owner. He’s cooperating with myself and law enforcement, so we’ll see how it goes. He’s sworn to reform….we’ll see…
Busy. Silence doesn’t always mean absence. ;-)
It sickens me to see such corruption within law enforcement. My heart aches for Dorner, his family, the family of the cop shot in the confrontation, and the families of the two women shot and killed. The whole situation, in my opinion, is absurd and could’ve been avoided. I take comfort in knowing that everyone will stand and be judged by God alone, who can’t be tricked or persuaded.
