...that this nick was registered by none other than walwyn himself?

I could be wrong, but I honestly can't shake the feeling.

so how would he have known about a new user that has no diaries, no stories, and has neither posted nor rated any comments?

that he is using illegal hacker tools to steal adequacy readers IP tokens. No doubt he plans to use them for some nefarious purpose. I'm posting anonymously to prevent my IP tokens from being misused in any way.

You are mistaken (none / 0) (#7)

the fine editors or this great site can't be expected to know everything that goes on. Therefore they provide a few trusted users with access to the sites monitoring logs.

This way there are more eyes to watch over the activities of 14/|\3|2z and the editors can get on with what they do best, approving well researched articles.

That's all very well (none / 0) (#8)

but the editors of this site make themselves known. You on the other hand could be a shady Russian h4X0r for all we know.

You'll just have to... (none / 0) (#9)

I trust the editors the problem is should we trust you?

You claim to have the editors permission to snoop around adequacy with your illegal hacker tools but we only have your word for it. Until such time as the editors confirm your priviliged status I suggest that other readers treat you as an adequacy editor wannabe.

Sound advice (none / 0) (#11)

trust no one - you can never be too careful with all those hackers about.

In the meanwhile keep posting as an AR its the safest way to ensure that your IP tokens aren't abused in the long run.

Would you please proofread your diary next time? (none / 0) (#5)
