URGENT: Volunteer's Needed (Missing Children)

P: n/a
Art
Hello everyone,

I am interested in starting an all volunteer website which will be directed
at recovering missing children. I am aware that there are few other sites
out there with the same mission. However, My perspective I believe is a
little different and more pro-active. And, the way I view... worst case
scenario, we recover a few additional missing children....

Anyhow, this perspective would be a little more involved and will require
different types of volunteers... Web Designers, Data Programmers, Law
Enforcement, Private Investigators and community members in general
volunteering for a worst while cause. My particular experience is from the
Law Enforcement side of the house, with many years of investigative
experience... I have very little web design experience and knowledge.
However knowing the extreme power of the information highway, I know that
the website and database related to this site would be the front line tool
that will eventually help on recovering some of this kids.

I was hoping to find experienced web designers and data programmers in here
that would be interested in volunteering their knowledge and free time on
assisting me on getting this project of the ground. To give you a general
idea of my intent... I have put together a "sample" website (using a Front
Page template). If you are interested in learning more about this, or
should you like additional information.... Please, don't hesitate to
contact me via email.

The sample site: http://missing-child-locate.tripod.com/index.htm

My email: br****@comcast.net

URGENTLY NEEDED IS AN ISP WILLING TO HOST OUR VOLUNTEER SITE AT NO COST
(This project at the moment is strictly a volunteer one, and any cost that
would be involved would have to come out of my pocket, which is extremely
limited...)

NOTE: Think of this an opportunity to use your knowledge, and specialized
abilities to contribute to the community and be a hero for this missing and
possibly endangered kids...

To All CDMA Participants Old and New:

I've recently accepted Jesus Christ as my personal savior. I want to
become a "new" Larry Linson. Therefore I'm repudiating this post and
all of my posts to CDMA over these many years. Those posts were the
work of the "old" Larry Linson. He was a liar and a deceiver.

To all of you who've supported me I can only say I'm sorry for letting
you down. To all of you whose work I've stolen I say I will never do
it again. And to those of you I've slandered or hurt in some way I
hope you'll find it in your heart to forgive me.

Respectfully Yours,
(The New) Larry Linson

This was, of course, not posted by Tony... Tony Toews doesn't use a
derogatory Yahoo address, nor does he post from the semi-anonymous
"teranews" news server, as this impersonation did. Both, however, are known
to be used by Don P Mellon, the person pointed out earlier in the thread as
having posted in the past from 3rivers.com, the origination point of one of
the impersonation posts.

The earlier Larry Linson post, apologizing for various things that I haven't
done, was the work of the impersonator, too, as "the real Tony" pointed out.

"Larry", that is almost believable. Good job. Still, literally any

monkey with Outlook Express can post a message in this newsgroup with "Larry Linson <bo*****@localhost.not>" as the e-mail. Anybody and everybody can do that. There is absolutely no way anybody can identify you as "Larry Linson" from
your post no matter how many links you put in your post. That is just a
fact and you know it. Everbody else knows it. So quit trying to play the
game, "Larry". Most posts have NNTP-Posting-Hosts. So what? Where does
one go to verify that a certain NNTP-Posting-Host is connected to some
character named "Larry Linson."

You could post your email in munged format, but you don't.

Hmmmm . . . . I wonder why. Maybe you like being anonymous. Maybe you have a good reason for being anonymous. We don't care. It's really wasted
effort to try to "prove" that a "larry linson <bo*****@localhost.not>" is
some unique and immutable label of a unique and immutable persona.

Whoever you are "Larry Linson", you have been successful in reaching #1 in
the stats, but lately have fallen off of number 1. Go back to Access and
concentrate on getting to number 1 again. And if you don't like "Larry
Linson", change your nick --- IT'S OKAY, WE DON'T CARE, NOBODY DOES. Some
people call themselves "Salad" or "Pink Panther" or "John Galt" or other
silly, meaningless nicks. It's just a nick. "Larry Linson" is just a nick. If your mama called you that, THAT'S OKAY TOO.


And then there's his illegal use of a university network to post anonymous
messages to this group.... (And you don't wanna know what his mama called
him.)

Still, literally any monkey
with Outlook Express can post a message in this newsgroup with "Larry Linson
<bo*****@localhost.not>" as the e-mail. Anybody and everybody can do that.
There is absolutely no way anybody can identify you as "Larry Linson" from
your post no matter how many links you put in your post. That is just a
fact and you know it. Everbody else knows it. So quit trying to play the
game, "Larry". Most posts have NNTP-Posting-Hosts. So what? Where does
one go to verify that a certain NNTP-Posting-Host is connected to some
character named "Larry Linson."


Rubbish. Consider the history of the posters and the domain in the message headers
from which they are posting..

Go away. Get lost. We don't want you here.

Shouldn't there be more plonk-instructions in the FAQ?

And, it must be clear to any sensitive newcomer who is making a fool out
of himself.

Good idea. Reply to a FAQ with some suggestions. <Smile>

Not really. Some of the more ridiculous answers yes. But if a newbie gets an
insulting reply what are they to think?

Well, since all newsreaders have different ways to do it, that
doesn't sound like a very good idea, since you'd have to include
various versions of the instructions. Perhaps a pointer to the
KillFiles FAQ would be helpful:

A bit depends on the personal history of that newbie (sensitive to
personal attacks? tends to take things personally?) and things only go
wrong when no to-the-point responses arrive.

My first thought on several occasions was "huh? what's this?" but there
are enough, well, normal threads around to compare to.

Mozilla 1.4:
From the menu Tools, select Message Filters. Click New. Type a name for
the filter (such as 'killfile') Most plonk candidates you will elect by
Sender; so choose (leave) Sender, most of the times Contains will do,
type the name. From the list below, check both 'Mark message as read'
and 'Delete the message'. OK and make sure the Enabled check lits.

That's interesting. I sent that to another FAQ maintainer and he was
getting 404s, too, at the same time that i was connecting with no
difficulties at all.

I just googled on "killfiles" so maybe it would be better to have
multiple pointers if that one happens to be unreliable.

Cool!

Yeah, I would think posting that link would be a good step.


Well, it's been reported as unreliable, so maybe you might want to
choose an alternate from the ones Google gives you if you search on
"killfiles" (as I did).

<snip>

The only killfile instructions you need (and ALL of you need this) is "DON'T
TELL THE PERSON YOU'RE KILLFILING HIM" !!. Seems obvious to me, but so many
of you go "well, that the last post of your's I'll see <PLONK>" or some such
tripe. All you're doing is telling the troll that it's time he changed
nicknames if he wants to keep annoying you. Just kill file him quietly, and
he'll go on believing that your seeing his messages for months.
