View Full Version : Revenge - web style

01-08-2002, 08:49 PM
Most people you deal with on the net, either here or other places are nice, reasonable people. But what happens when you come across someone who is downright rude and insulting? Are there any quasi legal ways of getting revenge on someone who is not a nice online person and deserves to learn a lesson?

I am looking for some suggestions. I have come across someone who utterly deserves to be punished (no, not Tim, and not on PressF1) and even though I should let it go, I want revenge so bad it hurts.

I read somewhere that you control someone that you anger. If that is true, I am being very controlled and it makes me more angry.

Ideas? Or am I being immature and sad and I should just let it go?

There's always anonymous email-bombing... ICQ Nuking... and that sort of thing... doesn't do anything overly damaging, just is INCREDIBLY annoying to the user :)

Robo, I don't know if they are quasi legal ways and not all of them are via the internet but you may get some ideas, check out this site.

I cannot be held responsible for the information found on this website, if you think you will be offended then don't click the link.

Well if you can get hold of a lock of his/her hair and some nail clippings, you could make this doll that ... um nevermind. Your normally so laid back Robo, the person that has wronged you must be nasty indeed.

robo. that's not very nice for someone to be hassling you online.

What exactly is it that this person is doing? If it's kind of best not mentioned here, feel free to email me and let me know if you want.

If you know their email address you could always dish them up a nice serving of spiced ham ;)

If it's at a forum or some other place where you need to be a member. Talk to the supperiors and I'm sure they will be booted out with in the hour.

Voodoo would be fun.....

Most people are fair, reasonable, and nice. This person seems to take great delight in insulting people and trying to impress people with their ability to insult and bullshit while spelling badly. They also supposedly get mad at software pirates while selling NFR product which is basically the same thing. A nasty person.
Not like we ge here.

Oh gawd...

Look, Robo, I'm really sorry about the e-mail remark to Bruce OK? ...

01-08-2002, 09:21 PM
You're a problem.
BTW I tried to email you the other day, has your address changed - it bounced?

Nah, some dip$h!t put .co.nz in the reply address instead of .net.nz

Did Bruce um, tell you then? :)

How could anyone do such a thing to our Robo? :-(

I can only imagine what it must feel like as I've only once been upset by someone on the net, fortunately.

Personally, I think the only way to deal with it is to send them just one curt reply telling them how distasteful they are then ignore them. People hate being ignored, especially the attention-seeking ones, and that's the ultimate punishment you can give them. It only encourages them if you respond and by not doing so you are displaying far more maturity than they are.

Go and run around the block ten times then you'll be too tired to think about him/her.

I said I was sorry ...

Elwin, what are you on about? What have you been saying to Bruce about Robo? You've really hurt his feelings by the sound of it... :D

>Anyway, Susan, you're supposed to be giving help, not advice

I'm not doing either, I'm after the prizes!! :D

Hiya Robo,

If you want to really slack them off, why don't you post one of those joke URLs to make their computer crash...... You could be a right nasty b'stard and post that Crash/Crash thingee

Rob... it's fairly easy to find out where they're from - if they're an Enzedder I'd bother about it, if they're not, put them down to being crud from out of their own orifice. Why not tell your online pals which forum you're using (unless it's from the daaaark side *shivers*) and allow us to go there to put the [person] verbally in it's place, and/or take it further :)

One time I wanted to break the fingers on a snotty teenager who thought he was the god of FPS games. LOL anyway my standard advice is take a short break - then ask yourself if it is still going to be an issue in 1 day, then ask what about 1 month? 1 year, 10 years.... Most of the time I decided I'll just ignore the loser because my bank and moral balance is still going to be better than his.

I suspect you are probably right. Expending energy on righteous indignation is futile at best.
Would be nice to teach a lesson, though.

I hear nuclear and chemical weapons are going rather cheaply on the blackmarket in the Middle East and former Soviet countries at the moment :)

I say if this dorkperson is being a bother indiscriminiately, ie not you personally, then forget it. If it's personal, it's directed at you personally but you haven't a clue who they are(offline), then let it go. If it's personal and you know who they are then give the dork/ess a cyber-whack and then let it go and go back to the good work you dooooooo. Stay B-)

One more advice for those who start venturing into the cyber playground. BEWARE OF TROLLS. These people seem to delight in getting you riled up as much as possible so if you're getting pissed off at them you're just playing into their games.
