Tutorial: How to expose an “Anonymiss”

DISCLAIMER: This is for research and teaching purposes only. I am not making any claim or accusation that this person is involved in the despicable acts that Kos contributors have partaken in over the past year. This is strictly an example of how to use a personal blog to lift the veil of anonymity.

When someone creates an online persona starting with the intention of remaining anonymity it usually isnt a big deal. However, when they are politically motivated they are usually doing this for the purpose of starting shit and harassing people. So here is a quick tutorial on how to use the smallest clues to unmask some of these losers. Ive chosen someone who calls themselves “Anonymiss”.

If you have noticed the “anonymiss” tag has slimed its way over to Daily Kos some time ago. Now we know the group has more than one member but for all intents and purposes we will focus on just one. Anonymiss in DC seems like a good place to start and that is what we will use for an example. So in a few easy steps I’ll show you how this is done

1) The first thing we see in the side bar is that she is a Daily Kos fan. Great, we’re on the right track. Plus her blog postings include her adventures of going to see the inauguration of Obama and random light slams against those who are not liberals. Moving on…

2) Dont bother starting at the most recent entries. Go to the earliest. This is something that I learned from my homegirl Mandy Nagy (aka Liberty Chick). Start at the beginning and work your way forward. It gives you a great picture of who you are dealing with and the chances of missing an important detail is greatly reduced. So, lets go to the first month of the blogging, December 2008 entitled “Wrong Number, Anyone?”; this is where we learn her identity and is chock full of clues. Ok, see picture below, this is where you should be.

3) In this post she is aggravated because she has received two voice-mails from people that are complaining about the biased news coverage. She makes it a point to stress that she is not in the news business. As she states, “Keep in mind that my work has NOTHING to do with the Middle East. At all. Zip. Zero. Nor am I a reporter.” One person complains about the covering of the ongoing conflict with the Palestinians. The second is a larger clue. So lets take her own words again.

“Fortunately, the next message happens to be from a much more rational guy from some newspaper in Pennsylvania who was wondering if I could help him get some more information about an article “I” ran on the Treasury.”

Now we know that there is an article in December 2008 that has a byline (author’s name) on it that is either the exact same name as hers or at least close enough to mistake her for the author. Do you see how easy this is yet? She then confirms that the callers that found their way to her voice mail were actually looking for the Associated Press.

“And then I call the Associated Press, who tells me that they’re really sorry, but people must be misdialing my number, which is similar to the number for the Business Desk.”

And then again she confirms it. She returns the call to one gentleman and tells him:

“I manage to say ‘Hi, I just wanted to let you know that you called and left me a message about an Associated Press article yesterday but you had the wrong number.'”

4) She has given us everything. Finding out her name now couldn’t be easier. At this point you swing over to Google and look for Associated Press articles from December 2008 with a female author. You will find the article on the Palestinian conflict as well as the article on the Treasury. Go ahead and check, I’ll wait. Ok are you back? Got the name? Great, now enter that name into Google and see if there is another person with the same name in Washington D.C. Well I’ll be damned, there are only two people in the country with this name and yes, one is actually in DC while the AP writer just has a DC number.

Great Job! You just unmasked an “Anonymiss” No hacking needed. Now you know her name and where she works. You used information that she freely provided. Bonus: Afterwards you can check out their friends and see what they are saying. Heyyyy, wait a minute, they actually tweeted a picture of her with the caption? “Not so anonymous now are ya?” Yes they did.

END NOTE REGARDING THE REAL ANONYMOUS AND ANONYMISS: I am not targeting any real member of Anon or an of those who are the real Anonymiss. I am targeting the political hacks, the paid political operatives, who were such cowards that they decided to use illegal means to intimidate their political opponents and used YOUR good name to hide behind. I am talking about people like Neal Rauhauser of Progressive PST. New fags were the cancer that was killing /b. Rauhauser is just one example of the poison that is killing ANON. Ask him yourself and he’ll just attempt to Triforce so he can prove that he is a legit. The Anonymiss of the Daily Kos are not legit; Ditto on the other ANONS teamed up with Daily Kos. The sharp anons are picked up on his fake profiles and his lame attempts to co-opt Anon and labeled him as COINTELPRO and called him out. Congrats, you were spot on.

Retweet Contest-Win Cash Prizes. No Bullshit

UPDATE AT BOTTOM: Wounded Warrior Project to receive donation!

The last time I needed to draw attention to a specific topic I held an online raffle. The rules were simple. You retweet a link and copy me on it and you’re automatically entered. And we are going to keep it just as simple this time around.

It Starts Today (As in RIGHT NOW!)

This new contest is going to help bring awareness to the online community about the post-Weinergate fallout. Innocent people who were investigating the story had their lives destroyed, on purpose, by demented liberals. Once they (the liberals) began to lose their argument they decided to target their opponents by making fake 911 calls posing as their opponent and telling the dispatcher that they had shot their wives. It’s called “Swatting” (as in using the SWAT team to intimidate people; or the person panics and is shot dead accidentally). Its terrorism. And even when it fails it still succeeds. Leftists no longer have the Klan as their terrorist arm of their party. Now, just like Islamic extremists, they are relying on irrational “lone wolves” who are faithfully tied to their political philosophy. So much so that respect for human life is no longer present. (See Crying Wolfe, my Introduction to the story on Yahoo, and other two posts here and here for background)

Ok Doug, WHAT ARE THE DAMN PRIZES???!?!?!

Grand Prize Winner (1): $100 gift card of your choice.

Second Place Winner (1): $75 gift card of your choice

Third Place Winner (3): 1 oz. Silver American Eagle

Awesome!! How Do I Enter?

It’s really simple.

1) Look for one of my tweets with the hashtag #TCW. You can find my Twitter profile HERE. Also acceptable are retweets from The Crying Wolfe Blog Twitter, or @Goatsred. It just has to have the hashtag.

2) Retweet the tweet (don’t forget to cc me, @dmatthewstewart, in the tweet)

3) Wait for my confirmation tweet saying that you have been entered. If you do not receive a confirmation within 24 hours contact me.

Thats it!!

The names are put on a slip of paper and dropped into a big bowl. The Contest starts NOW! And the prize drawings will be on February 29, 2012.

Can I give myself an edge? And other minutia

In the last contest it did not matter how many times you retweeted my tweets, you only got one entry. However, we are going to change it this time and add incentive for you to really get it out there. So here is some incentive:

10 Retweets = 1 extra entry

25 Retweets = 2 extra entries

50 Retweets = 3 extra entries

Q&A

Q: Do I have to actually follow you to be entered?

A: No. I am not doing this to get my number of followers up. You can go about your business on Twitter without having to deal with my daily gripes or sarcastic remarks. This is about getting the stories out and exposing lawbreaking cowards.

Q: If I am a 3rd place winner can I receive a gift card rather than a Silver Eagle Coin?

A: Sure. I just have an abundance of bullion coins and it makes those 3 prizes easier to fulfill. But the choice is yours.

Q: Why do you do this?

A: Some topics absolutely need as much exposure as possible. My blog only receives about 200-300 hits per day. My Yahoo commentaries will receive on average 1,000-2,000 hits per month. And I only have about 730 followers on Twitter. This is a way to take a relatively small internet footprint and expand it.

Q: Why now?

A: Because I am days away from publishing the technical data of the perpetrators. This will be an extremely important part of this issue

Q: What are you some kind of an asshole?

A: Yep

If you have any other questions feel free to either contact on twitter (@dmatthewstewart) or email me douglasmatthewstewart@gmail.com

Thanks and good luck everyone!

PS-Winner of my previous contest was Jbroks86 and he can attest to the fact that this is not bullshit.

UPDATE 1/17/12

If this contest receives over 10,000 retweets I will sell a Gold Eagle and make a donation to the Wounded Warrior Project for whatever the coin sells for.

Do it for your country!

Liberal Cowards make fake 911 call to get even with enemies

During the fallout of the Weinergate scandal a few things became clear from the very beginning. The first fact that became clear was that that was in fact Anthony Weiner’s junk in the picture. But the next thing that became transparent was that there were players in the background who were nothing more than a mirage. Fake online personas created to either throw off the scent to those investigating the matter, or they could step in, if need be, and throw a monkey wrench into someone’s life at will.

Since those players were unsuccessful in throwing off the scent they turned instead to pure intimidation. Mike Stack, whom I have gotten to know quite well since this past summer, was one of their targets. His crime? He retweeted the Anthony Weiner picture. So those on the left decided it was time to shut him up. Cowards all of them are. And rather than confront him one on one they instead made a fake 9-1-1 call to his address, posed as Mike Stack, and told the operator that he had shot his wife. Not only is Mike Stack not married but they needed to make three separate calls to three different locations. Apparently “Mike Stack” didnt know where he himself lived. Below is the end of the phony 9-1-1 call made to police. The person making the call will not sound familiar to you. But we know who it is. Unfortunately they have had their voice recorded before; and I think they forgot 🙂 [Original post on Crying Wolfe here]

********************************************************************************************************

Think about it. You’re a regular guy on Twitter and you happen to retweet Anthony Weiner’s weiner. Next thing you know you are being dragged out of your house by police with guns at your head. This is the epitome of the “ends justifying the means” strategy of the political left achieving their goals. If you can’t confuse them try to shut them up; by any means necessary. He, as well as others, were warned/threatened that if they continued to pursue this that their safety could not be guaranteed. And they gave it their best. After this “lesson” Mike Stack was supposed to shut up.

But Mike Stack did not shut up. Most people, after going through something similar, give up…they just want to return to their normal life. What Stack’s opponents did not expect was that he would regroup and come back with everything he had. Rather than become reclusive he reached out and in doing so gained the momentum and strength it took to see this through to the end. Stack will always be humble enough to immediately suggest that he could not have done it without a ton of help. Us, on the other end, will immediately try to convince you that we couldnt have seen this through to the end if Stack didnt regroup and handle this with a level head. In this respect the “help” is more correct than Mike Stack.

And now the end is here. Slowly but surely each player and their involvement will be revealed. This is still foreplay. For those who thought the police report didnt exist; its now been published. Those same people thought the audio of the 9-1-1 call didn’t exist. Well, here it is. Those on dry land sometimes never feel an earthquake on the nearby ocean floor. The first sense of danger comes when the tide recedes. And before you know it the killer wave of a tsunami is upon you. Deep breath! Pray you emerge.

PS-Why do I keep running into machines with a certain operating system every time I break down the details of a threatening comment left on someone’s site regarding this issue?

And there is so much more. Details to come-Stay Tuned…

The Crying Wolfe; a Showdown at High Noon

My Twitter followers undoubtedly have seen me tweeting posts from a new blog called “The Crying Wolfe” and some may wonder exactly what it is. It is quite simply a thesis in how to structure a proper rebuttal to internet trolls whom have targeted an individual for total personal destruction.

The remnants left behind in the Weinergate scandal was an amalgamation of deranged individuals that harness the power of this free digital medium and use it as a tool to smear people. If you investigated the scandal and the players behind it you were targeted. And just like the cowards the perpetrators really are they hid behind fake online personas, sometimes created in the hundreds, and spent the majority of their waking hours harassing those investigating the scenario.

Some of those targeted were old enemies, some were new. Inevitably the driving force behind the relentless attack came down to a clash in ideology; which is usually what always lies at the base of these types of feuds. However, rather than go head to head, liberal cowards (oxymoron) chose instead to operate from the shadows and in more than one occasion crossed the line and participated in real life illegal activity. This was done strictly for intimidation. I am glad to say that it did not work.

Over the past few months every aspect of this scenario was picked apart, analyzed, processed, and documented. While I have an idea of who the author, or authors, may be at The Crying Wolfe, I can’t be certain. However, the topics cross into and share some of the same details that I myself worked on while investigating this prolonged harassment. Some of those researching this followed the social interactions and activities closely while others focused strictly on the technical aspects. The online social activities (mostly on Twitter) was a little too much for me to follow. So I did what I do best and I approached the problem from the technical angle. In the next few days I’ll start to reveal what I have learned.

I encourage everyone regardless of your political ideology to read up and follow this as it develops. If you are a leftist I guarantee you would not encourage this behavior that leftist hacks have partaken in.

Since there were so many fake identities that were created just to harass people we are going to start here with a quick tutorial on how a sharp eye, and persistent research, can reveal the true identity of someone who thinks they are “anonymiss”.That will be the first post…

Oh, and then we are going to address this:

Dont worry, I know too.

 

With some fun tech tools like this:

iwar, sip-me, or...

Is it all bullshit? Was this another piece of misinformation used to throw off the scent of those investigating this? Also as a new reader you may be asking what untraceable 911 calls have to do with Weinergate and those investigating it. Just wait, it will blow your mind.

Peace.

PS-To the perpetrators, I’ll give you 24 hours do come clean and fess up. Otherwise I will do it for you. Deleting your posts and pseudo lawsuit documents will do nothing. They have already been filed away and then there is also a little thing called “Freezepage“. In addition all of your conversations (fake accounts included) have all been screen-capped. I would also love for you to take legal action so I can use your information through discovery to confirm my findings. Happy New Year!

 

 

#OWS “Not Trending” Conspiracy debunked-Hippies cant Algorithm

Thisis actually a dream...youre still asleep

CAUTION: Highly Ironic Situation Below

Anyone on Twitter around the time #OWS first kicked off will remember two very distinct things happening. First, as the protests were in full swing the Occupy Wall Street crowd was upset that their hashtags were not trending on Twitter. Secondly, to add insult to injury the parody hashtag #OWSMovies actually started to trend.

How could this be? Obviously it was a conspiracy to censor the righteous advocates of justice. Well, at least that is what they claimed. After all, they were there, they were dear, and the message wasnt clear. So the #OWS participants stuck with the theory that they were being censored. The proof? A lotof people were saying it.

Oops-Analysis of Twitter Trending Topics Algorithm

Gilad Lotan of Social Flow took on the task of answering the question: “Is Twitter Censoring it’s Trends to exclude #occupywallstreet?” As well as other trending topics.

The simple answer is “NO”. Read Gilad Lotan’s article here But wait, it gets better!!

The best part is that the studies that Lotan cited for proving his own work debunking the claim, came from those right-wing lunatics at studentactivism.net. If you did not catch what I just did there that was called sarcasm.

Lotan needed to look no farther than Angus Johnstons work to debunk the claim that the Occupy Wall Street crowd was being censored on twitter. After all, he handled the same claim concerning Wikileaks. You can find his papers here; (parts 1, 2, 3, and 4) So along with being irrational, unwashed, and deranged they are also incorrect about their paranoia. No one is censoring them-and their own ilk proved it with minimal effort.

Peace
