I’ve written from time to time about the Team Kimberlin related anonymous comments that show up in moderation here at Hogewash!. Many of them have come from the same few IP address, and some have used the same fake email address more than once.
One interesting factoid is that many of the IP that have been used are associated the service Bill Schmalfeldt has said he uses for VPN connection. Here are the IPs that have been used three or more times in order of occurrence.
Here’s a list of the “email addresses” that have turned up more than once.
That list should give the Gentle Reader a general idea of the general content of these anonymous comments, but I should note that many of the “return addresses” are much more obscene.
These comment trolls believe that they have been operating in an untraceable manner. That’s not completely accurate. However, not every comment is traced back to its origin. I’d appreciate any additional information that anyone might send my way.
UPDATE—A commenter outlines the first steps one takes in tracing harassing emails/comments such as these. There are more sophisticated means as well.
