    Outing An Online Outlaw - Telephone Terrorist

    Consdering that ~20% of our client issues are idiots abusing voice server clients, this ENTIRE article made me smile.

    I hope this moron (lol, I'm all worked up) gets busted very hard from Canadian Police.

    It sickens me to think that the world is full of so many losers just like this kid.

    It's a long but amazing read. I can only hope he gets what he deserves.

    Wow, it just dawned on me that "NRG servers" was the name of a company who lost their Ventrilo license years ago due to lack of payment I believe. I wonder if this was the idiot running it?

    Looks like it's the same guy... NRG was also based out of Canada.

    Every day I wake up and run a news search for his name and "prankNET" hoping to see charges pressed. Nothing yet

    Thanks for the NRG Servers clarification. Crazy to think this guy ever got approved.

    Loved the part when "Dex", was cornered by the TSG reporters and was "Cowering in his room with his mother". Classic.

    Then there's this -
    Offline friends--if they even exist--are minimal. He is part of that young male subspecies that does not have a job or a girlfriend, passed on college, and spends hours a day playing so-called first-person shooter games like "Counter-Strike," "Halo," and "Crossfire." Malik addresses everyone--including the Pranknet audience itself--as "Dude." He steals his Wi-Fi. And he'd certainly be living in his mother's basement if she had one.
    Kinda feel sorry for these types of folks.

    ...and I wish he is kept in prison (Guantanamo? something like that) and is told to do lots of obscure and humiliating things. And his lawyers do him the same. And the inmates. Such imprisoment (10 years, not less) would help him and his 'friends' a little

    I know what you mean. Reading about his father dying, etc. Makes you think twice about how lucky you are and just why they're doing this.

    Yeah, he lives with his Mum, has no money, no job, no girlfriend. Seems like life sucks and he needs to vent that on others. Sad really.
