To the AIM hacker

Dear AIM hacker,
please give me back my account. I did nothing bad to you, so I don’t understand why you are doing this to me. Being an open person and writing about everything in my life you probably figured out my security question. You proved your point. Now, please allow me to have my account back.

Thank you.

Dear άσχημη, λωλή, φασιστοχωριάτα,

I thought you said there are no innocent and it’s not my fault that you can’t protect yourself now, is it? Well, I’ll tell you what, I’ll think about it… However, in the mean time you can always consider your sins, cry and repent or beg me. 😛

You are welcome.

This is the admin speaking...

I emailed you in your gmail account, if this is not a valid address, I am not sure how we can continue talking about it.

I don’t have any sins to repent btw, neither there is any way to repent if I had. It’s sad that you would do anything like this to your fellow man. You used readily available information on my blog to get to my account, and so the sin is in your side. You stole something that I owned for 8 years. I never stole anything in my life.

So for the last time, please give me my account back.

Heh, it is now clear to me. You are one of these serial killer types (or someone who’s just a few steps behind on getting there). Look at what you wrote:

“I thought you said there are no innocent”

I don’t recall saying that, although if I did, there was a context. The unconditional “no innocent” is part of a disturbed mind agenda.

“it’s not my fault that you can’t protect yourself now, is it?”

You are either watching too much “Dexter”, or your lines could help a lot a Hollywood writer over there at Orange County. Of course and it’s your fault, you talk about sins, and yet, you are everything but a good Samaritan.

“you can always consider your sins, cry and repent or beg me.”


You would never give me back my account so there’s no point asking. You can keep it, χαλάλι σου. I will never give you the kind of satisfaction that you desire.

Those security questions are a serious security hole, and everyone (every online service) insist in you creating one! Best thing to do is to answer with a random alphanumeric string of at least 40 characters and forget about it. You’ll never need it anyway. Only hackers (or false friends) use it to enter your account.

P.S: sorry for interrupting on your comments off policy. I just thought anyone who reads this should be warned about the problem.

Now the douchebag is trying to get to JBQ’s AIM account.

I think we have no alternative but to go to the police.

Consider the hundreds of us that come every day and enjoy your thoughts and information. It is a subject of appreciation at the Seattle Vegas Users Network. Do not let one person spoil it for you. Remember your admirers are HUNDREDS. I often want to email you and comment on things you say or how it makes me think. I realize that you cannot devote your life to answering me and the others who benefit from this blog. I am a fan and I hope your website not only returns soon, but that you put it all in the proper perspective. One vs Hundreds

Obviously you or I haven’t met this guy/gal, but after reading that ‘half-sensical’ response I realize we’ve known about him/her for quite some time.

These people suffer from a lack of control or power in their ‘actual lives’, and so they try to compensate by grasping for any bit of fame in some meaningless ‘virtual life.’

If I were you I would just smile. Seriously, this is probably the pinnacle of this person’s life achievement. It’s a fraction of one percent of what you have achieved. Without you they are nothing, and soon they will be nothing again, even with you.

They see someone like you, who the world listens to, and takes seriously, and respects, and they hate that they can never have that. It’s just pure envy. The best they can hope for is a few seconds of notoriety, like some parasite hoping to live for one more second off your name.

It seems like you’ve already done the right thing. Let’em have the account. At the end of the day, you wont even remember that screen name, and all they will have is the anticipation of returning anonymity. They may avoid that sadness through you for a second, but it is guaranteed to return.

That response is a joke… It reeks of someone trying to make them self believe that they are clever. When you called ’em a ‘hacker’ I think you were being to kind. They just made a good guess. Anyone could have done it, given eight years to study and obsess over you.

Thanks for all you do, and I look forward to reading all your future material.

I am sorry to hear that, it happen to me also with a very old ICQ account, those accounts were the first ones opened by ICQ 10 years ago, they got 6 to 9 digits and were very valuable in ebay, people use to pay a lot to have one…
I lost some precious contacts…

This is why I always write something irrelevant in those security question (Name of your favorite pet: Thalidomedes Methistocledes :), only funny thing is that I don’t remember what the hell I was writting there when I need to retrieve my password (But it hasn’t happened yet :P).

This kind of people we call “hackers” today sucks and there is no way I can feel respect about them. Nothing to do with the old definition. And there is no good reason stealing someone’s account.
