I'm going to be posting my second instalment of my Bi Polar post either tonight or tomorrow. Keep your eyes peeled. This blog is in response to all the emails I've been getting asking me to find out who their anonymous troll is. I can't look at your comments and find the IP address just like that. You must have statcounter. I would have to go into your statcounter . Not the one you automatically get with blogger, you have to upload it from the web.
Yo, yo, yo, what up readers? Sorry I haven't been writing my normal long drawn out boring blogs I usually post everyday or every other. Shout out to all of you who have emailed me for the link to the trolls information. He hasn't been back since I left comment alerting everyone to link. From this point on I will not participate in any flame wars no matter what. The cool thing is I haven't gotten any anonymous comments besides those from my troll in over a month, and non at all in almost a week. I haven't checked my stats to see if he's still trolling my blog or not. Who cares if he still reads, he can't hide behind anonymous any longer. If you have a troll or trolls and its keeping you from blogging, get statcounter and an IP tracker. Goggle "computer programming" and "backdoor software". Do not Google "Hacker" or "How to hack". The only thing you'll get is your computer hacked and attacked. Whatever you do, do not watch the youtube video "ask a hacker". Its a video of this large young man ranting about how people are always asking him to hack someone for them, and why he would not do something like that for free and face getting caught and a large fine. He does give up some useful information if you want to learn how to hack yourself. The information is not worth the damage your commuter will suffer after watching this video. There are a lot of good hacking blogs, but be careful because you can get hacked by looking at a hacker blog. Pretty much stay away from hackers. They like to practice on their readers.
What you want is computer programmers aka programmers. Call or go to your local best buy and ask someone from Geek Squad to help you off the clock. Do not ask them to hack someone for you. Tell them you have a troll leaving flames under anonymous and you want to make them not so anonymous. Programmers are pretty sympathetic. I put all my trolls comments on my phone and brought it in to show them why I needed help. If your troll is threatening legal action against you because you're blogging about something illegal like drugs. For instance I know of one person who's troll threatened to get cps involved in their life after writing about their addiction on their blog. BTW, nobody truly knows if a blog is non fiction or fiction. Let them call cps, after all your blog is fiction. Catch my drift. I also suggest if your afraid of legal action, don't give out your real name, and facebook etc like I do. I'm not afraid of legal action because I've done nothing illegal. I'm sort of afraid of serial killers or just killers in general, but I can't undo what I've done, so here I am. Do not call the 1-800 # for Geek Squad. They won't help because they could loose their jobs. The person who you do get a hold of thru Geek Squad or any other programmer will direct you in the direction you need to go to make an anonymous troll not so anonymous. It is your job to get the IP address. If you don't have an IP address of the troll there is nothing you can do.
Unfortunately you have to bait the troll by replying to their comments so you can track there entrances and exits. Where they are coming to your blog from ie: do they have it marked favorite, do they google it, or just type in the address. What page did they leave your blog on, have they downloaded any of your photos. Exit is also useful to help you figure out what IP left what comment by looking at the times they exited through comments on certain posts and what times they left a comment on the post they exited out of. Within three seconds usually...sometimes longer but no longer than 8 seconds. Sometimes it takes a few seconds for the comments to show. Statcounter is the best tool for this, but there is sitemeter and a number of others. It takes a few hours to get acquainted with everything statcounter can do, and if you update it. I've seen sitemeter and I don't think its as organized as statcounter. You don't need to upgrade to get IP and ISP's. Statcounter and Sitemeter are free. If you have the money though I recommend updating it. The prices vary depending on what updates you pick. I pay 5.99 a month, but there is an update for 1.99 a month.
If you want to rid yourself of anonymous trolls who leave flames you must get statcounter. Normal trolls get scared away after you find out where they are commenting from and realize you can figure out who they are. Some are super crazy and will keep on trolling and trying to start flame wars.
After you have either taught yourself to track an IP address, or someone helped you, you'll find out that when someone has there Internet enabled like Ipads and or any pads that are always on the Internet, you have to ping to make sure the Internet is on, and then float through a back door. Going in the back door is illegal, but as long as you don't attack their computer or pad and just roam around looking at stuff they will never know you were there. If your going to do this, use another ISP, and IP spoof. Go somewhere with free wifi access, use an older computer if you have one. Make sure that computer is not networked with your other computers. Even though the odds are nobody will notice you were there (as long as you don't change anything or add anything) As long as you use someone else's ISP, and us IP spoofing even if they do notice you were there, they would have to spend hours and hours of time trying to back track and figure out the real IP and the real ISP. It would take a professional or the cops. As long as you don't steal credit card info or their identity cops are so backed up with backdoor accesses chances are you'll never get caught. IF you did, its only a fine, no jail.
I hope this answered all the questions people have been emailing me since I put up the trolls info on one of my blogs.
I learned all this the hard way. The askahacker youtube video was the worst. Which is why I put it in the comment I posted to my troll. I knew he was trying to figure out how I was getting his info and if it was true so I put askahacker in there knowing he'd look it up and get attacked. The troll uses mac though so probably didn't do anything to his Ipad. Macs are less prone to attacks and hacks. Its not impossible, but just a generic virus, Trojan, worm, won't wreak havoc on macs.
The above information is not complete and you won't be able to figure out the identity of your troll with just the above info. You will get their IP and ISP, and location with the above information. If I can take away the anonymity of a troll anyone can. I'm not advocationg attacking or hacking. Just spying. hahaha. Not spying for malicious information like credit card and stealing identity's or screwing up credit scores. NO matter how much I'd love to mess up my trolls credit score I won't do it. Its too mean, and too illegal.
I'll copy and past some programmers blog post so you don't have to worry about getting attacked and hacked. The person who helped me showed me a few blogs that don't practice their skills on their readers.
Again email me at my gmail account if want the link to the info. about IP 18.104.22.168 aka my troll. If your a blogger get statcounter and wash out the trolls who leave flames. Put out the flames with me. Trolls belong under bridges not reading your blog and leaving inflammatory comments to get you riled and start a war.
Most important, nobody knows if a blog is fiction or non fiction. You can't even be truly sure who is writing it. Even a blog like mine with my full name, and up to date pictures and links to twitter, and my email addresses. Some people have lots of time on their hands and can make up a whole person with a fb page, a twitter account, email addresses, and pictures. Photo shop and google images can be very powerful. Someone thinks my mom writes this blog as me. Who's to say he/she is not right? Don't worry what anonymous commenter threaten. If they threaten your life then its illegal and you can call the police. If one person leaves numeours rude comments it is harassment and it is illegal. The thing is, cops don't take it too seriously. I called the cops on my troll and all I got was the officer's last name, and a report #, and email address to forward the comments you already got and any new comments you get to that email address, with the IP address those comments are coming from. I even said my troll was suspected of child porn, and still sorry mama, we are doing all we can right now. If you were in our jurisdiction we could do more. I asked if I could call the FBI, the said you can, but they aren't going to do anything about harassment. The FBI is inundated with so much cyber crime that little things like our blogs and the comments we get and give mean nothing to them. So hacking is a tolerated crime pretty much. As long as you don't hack the FBI or CIA or Homeland Security. And if you did hack one of those, your more likly to get a job there than go to jail.
I learned all this in a few days. Imagine if I actually put all my time and effort into it?
