jigabo0 = Schmanman

Now you may find that hard to believe, but according to their IP's, it's a match.

Schmanman has made 23 posts from the same IP as jigabo0, either meaning he's on a Dynamic (changing) IP or he is using a computer from school, a friend house, or maybe even a proxy that he forgot he has posted through before.

I do recall a member telling me awhile back Schmanman had a second account, I was shocked as to why, and now it seems he has gone and used this account for the latest spam rampage.

Now, I've deleted all his posts and all your replies aside from the ones in the 'Thanks Folks' thread, so I can show these to PCGUY when he comes online. The thread is locked by the way.

In future situations, instead of replying, get a mod or PCGUY asap.
I must of deleted about 50 posts in 5 minutes just now. I also notice some of you went back and 'cleaned up' your posts :wink:

As a normal member, you can't do anything in a situation like this, but a mod can clean up as the spamming continues, and even better PCGUY can ban.

But until the new update where mods may see a temp-ban feature, PCGUY is the main person you need to contact.

His MSN address and I think AIM too, is available in his profile, so if this happens again, I suggest you add him immediately and try and get hold of him.

I think that is all that needs to be said for now.

Thoughts anyone?

Yeah, what the hell was schmanman's beef with everyone?

And, why the hell didn't he just use his main account? I mean if we are all such "losers" why did he even care about keeping his main account open?

Also, the "u got no life" argument seems to be a bit hypocritical now. [glances at swat gun].

Still doing a stunned herring impression.

I suspect _Fnord, he wasn't expecting to be caught. There is a certain thrill to be found in becoming anonymous and charging round someplace you know to cause trouble.

Yeah, what happened to Schmanman, I’d be lying if I said I knew him good enough to be sure but, he seemed above that sort of thing?

Who's post did you delete? Schmanman's??? Is there any other way to prove who jigabo0 is other then IP address's? This really doesn't sound like Schmanman, he's been here long enough to know better. I've also have had many correspondenses with him, and he just don't seem like the type to waste his time doing this. Could this be the work of a hack? If so, could it be proved? Is Schmanman locked out rite now? So he can't see this.

Is it possible that Schmanman was using spudfiles at school, and then some other kid from school decided to start spamming spudfiles from school also? I know that in one of the posts jigaboo made, he said that he was in fifth hour...

Schmanman neither his counter-part are banned as I have no such powers.

Schmanman did make one reply that I saw to his 'counterpart' saying something like 'wtf' or similar, looked more like it was to cover his tracks then anything.

My brother, who is on the same network as me, also has a SpudFiles account, and our IP's don't match (dynamic though) so I doubt it's a sibling.

Though it does appear he is on a Static IP, which doesn't change, so I believe someone on the same network, such as a sibling, may share the same IP.

All I know, is it links to Schmanman, so it may be his friend Tyler, another friend, a sibling or him.

He needs some explaining to do.

Yup, I realised I was just making a mess, so I went back and cleaned up all the Troll food I'd left around - it was starting to rot, and damn, it was leaving a horrible stink.

And my thoughts?
Is it possible to build a supercar out of trifle...?

@Fnord: SWAT or not, going around spamming forums is not a good way to spend your life.

@Hotwired: Yes, I ran around my school all the time dressed as a Ninja, but the problem was, they knew it was me. There was a no hats rule in the school, but nowhere was there anything about balaclavas - I sat through whole lessons like that, the teachers knew better than to challenge it.

Man, am I weird...

@jddrw: I wish. I've done text comparisons on people to see if they're the same, or different, but I can hardly do it now, the posts were so mauled it's not possible.

If you go and check out Schmanman's post, he is normaly to the point, polite. Not a talker like myself. I can see a pissed off brother, sister trying to disrupt something he likes. Maby he took the key out of his dirt bike so siblings couldn't ride it and maby thats it. All speculation on my part, I just can't see him being that stupid.

See if he wasn't trying to get caught, obviosuly he would change the way he types so a match can't be made and he looks like a normal spammer.

Also since he posted straight after one of the posts by jigabo0, I doubt it was someone on his computer and he would clearly know.

Actually, what I meant is he seemed to be complaining about us wasting our lives on building this crap, whereas he's got one of the biggest life-wasters on here.

Yes, I ran around my school all the time dressed as a Ninja, but the problem was, they knew it was me.

I only did that once, but it took people a while to figure out who it was (seriously).

So will Schamman be banned? Also what exactly was he saying, as i seem to have missed it? Was he the spammer in the Thanks Guys thread that emailed PCGuy?

So if he gets banned, that means the glorious SWAT gun will be no longer the biggest here right?

spudfiles has fallen victim to internet forum teen angst. schmanman /jiggy should be dealt with privately by mods and PCGUY. clean his posts up and encourage members not to feed the trolls. a post like this continues to feed the need for attention of the troll and it also forms the internet equivalent of a 'old west' lynching party. members now have some sort of preconceived notion regarding schmanman's guilt.

deal with it in private, interrogate him, waterboard him and then the mods and PCGUY can make the decision. after that then tell us about it if you like.

just my opinion

The IP's are from the same school district, that is all we are able to tell.

Please read my reply to "Thanks Folks"
