Subject: Criminal Charges for Lakehead Spammer (cont?d)
I spoke with the site owner of studentawards.com. He says he?s collected the IPs the Lakehead spammer was posting from and he intends on going to the police and pressing charges. The site is most of his income so it is a big deal for him. Once he knows the kids identity he might also file a civil suit against him for lost income, depending on how long the forums are down.

The forums are going to stay offline until he can figure out how to restrict picture uploads without ruining it for everyone else.

Peace.

What does the Lakehead spammer have to look forward to this summer?

-weeks or months of uncertainty waiting for criminal charges
-a one or two year long civil trial, costing him thousands in legal fees even if not convicted
-a reprimand from his university if he?s arrested in class/rez
-community service and a fine, minimum, if found guilty
-a criminal record that will cancel out any advantage his degree might have given him over a high school grad
-probably an court order or condition barring him from accessing the internet

Hope that day of spamming was worth it, "computer genius". Enjoy your summer!

Since it was a forum, it is the responsibility of the admins to check that. So I don?t think anyone can do anything against the Lakeheader.

It would be so ridicilous to think that the poluce will even deal with a stupid Lakeheader who ruined a forum!!

Because it is a "forum..." And there are many stupid people over there like the Lakeheader, and because of them many forums every day are ruined.

Nohting happens to these dickheades!!

Yes all that is possible, especially the civil litigation if the owner suffers loss of income. I doubt criminal charges will ever be laid since the spammer is probably still a minor. The law is far too lax on minors and they know it.

A few years ago a friend of mine was charged with mischief for doing something like this but it was an IRC server he took down. He was arrested months later when the police showed up one evening at 10pm, took all the electronics from his house, and gave him dates to get fingerprinted and appear before a JP. The JP gave him bail terms wouldn?t let him use the net unsupervised. The charges were dropped for some reason but only after he agreed with the judge not to reclaim all the seized computer equipment. His family lost several computers over it.

this reminds me of something that happened many years ago at my high school. Someone set up an internet site and started dissing all the teachers and put up their addresses and phone numbers. the RCMP came and took his computer, he got expelled and lord knows what else happened, probably got charged. anyways, shows that you can?t just screw around on the net.

BTW - regarding the comments about it being a public forum, remember that forums have terms and conditions. You had to agree to them to sign up at studentawards. And spamming message boards with pornographic images that eat up space, bandwidth, and don?t allow other users to post is a denial of service attack.

Stuff like this happens all the time, true, but there?s differences in this case. The website and spammer are both Canadian, making it very easy to pursue charges. The site owner apparently relies on the website as a source of income and had clear T&C?s prohibiting the spammer?s conduct - now he has to take down the site and fix it at his own expense. And the spammer has proven himself to be without any redeeming qualities at all... it?s not a one-time thing, he?s been harassing these forums for weeks, during the time of year students need admission advice most.

Lakeheader, try all you want to convince yourself otherwise but you blatantly broke the law and hurt some dude?s business. Unless you used anonymizer proxies outside Canada, your identity is a subpoena away. Consider yourself lucky if there?s no civil suit. A mischief charge isn?t the end of the world but spending so much time and money in court during your university years will suck.

Well, the teachers case was serious...

But the dickead will be OK. Police will just laugh at the situation, if studentawards ever go there.

Oh yeah, I agree... Also, it is the administrators? job to clean up the site. Otherwise, that is a forum, and dickheads like that always exist, and always existed.

The police might not do anything. If the complaint is made to the Toronto police probably nothing will happen b/c they are too overworked or will wait too long for the charges to stand up. But if the complaint is made to the OPP or RCMP in some little town then expect them to put more effort into it. It all depends on how much studentawards is hurting after this. If someone relied on it for income then criminal charges are certain, but if it?s just a hobby website maybe no one will care.

He simply made Lakehead a worse university. Whether he intended to make Lakehead look bad or tried to promote Lakehead (albeit his plans backfired), it does not matter. The point is, his "uncivilized" (gotta love this word) behaviour is uncalled for, especially since he is in his a prospective university, or worse, an actualy Lakehead student.

The original thread starter is a studentawards staff. He posted this and maybe replied to himself because he wants to give a
warning to this spammer.

Don?t bash Lakehead University. The spammer maybe a faked one or even a high school kid.

Yes, please don?t bash Lakehead!!! I am the original Lakehead poster, the one who posted the first ranking, and I am not from Lakehead. I just wanted to have some discussion and fun.

And I am sure this dickhead is also not from Lakehead. He ruined all fun. It was so nice to have some fun.

Well, I also posted about Nipissing, not just Lakehead. At those times, it was so fun. When tyhis dickhead came, he ruined everything by posting porn etc.

But yea, my point is: "Don?t bash Lakehead; I am not from Lakehead, and I think that that dickhead is not also from lakehead!!"

The dickhead spammer might have pretended to be a friend of Lakehead University but didn?t quite pull it off. With friends like that, who needs enemies.

Hey Original Lakehead Poster, do you remember posting this?

"Hey there Lakeheader, the harsh one,

I am the original Lakehead poster, and I definitely luv the fact that u ruined the studentawards.com forum. And I like your posts and read them with great joy!

My suggestion is that the next time u spam in their forum, please advertise for this particular forum so that we can have more pple here. It is easier to advertise for Lakehead here than in other places since there is the anonymous function here.

Then, we could have great fun!!"

Take your fun somewhere else, asshole. You aren?t the good guy here.

No advertising for Lakehead or Nipissing (and other shitty universities) will ever make them look good. They need to pump out quality research.

Stop trying to ruin people?s lives.

Hey, that?s why I think there might be even more than two Lakehead posters. I am the original one, posting the rankings like a few months ago maybe (supporting not only Lakehead but also Nipissing). But it was fun at that time. Now, this dickhead exaggerated everything. Attacking everywhere...

And maybe he responded himself also. I believe that the above message is his own response to himself. Or maybe, as I said, there are more than two Lakeheaders.

But I am sure one of them is that dickhead. The others probably just wanted to have fun.
