Re: Abuse ticket


it was not a spam in my case. See that piece of shit:


I run a forum at ****.co.uk and tonight a user has highlighted a private message that was sent from the following IP: 72.14.**.** on: Fri, 13 Mar 2009 21:20:54 UTC.

The recipient has personally contacted the Child Exploitation & Online Protection Centre www.ceop.gov.uk however, having done a lookup on the IP and finding this email address, I wanted to alert this to you too. I have now blocked any access from 72.14.*

Here was the original message:

I've had it with you, cun.t. I know more about you than I should. I've seen what you look like, fatso. And when I drop by your area I am going to find you, and I am going to fu.ck you up your arse and then strangle you to death. No joke.

I will watch your face while you run out of breath and shrivel up and die like the fanny licking little faggo.t you are. Oh what a fun sight it'll be. A sight for sore eyes? YEAH.



Forum admin is probably also an id*ot, because I dont know, why he blocks subnet of 65000 IP address because of single abusive post. On other hand, I accept my VPS's provider attitude, because it is unacceptable to leave his IP pool in blacklists...

As I wrote many times before, running my VPS has priority No.1, but I also like to support Tor and I will try to find any solution to keep exit node running. If anybody have an idea, please help me!

I have gotten two abuse complaints relating to posting of spam onto Craigslist
via my Tor exit node.  In each case i sent the complainant and my ISP a note about
Tor (modified EFF DMCA response) as well as a suggestion that part of the problem
is the website's failure to require users to authenticate and confirm postings.
Forum users can be anonymous but still maintain a solid internet reputation.
Even anonymous users can be identified and located based on repeated abusive
behaviour at other forums.

Also, it would be overkill for the website to ban the entire IP space of your
VPS provider since they need only ban the IP that your Tor node has (or all Tor
exits e.g. using TorDNSEL service https://www.torproject.org/tordnsel/index.html.en)

Good luck!
