• Who are you?

    From Michiel van der Vlist@2:280/5555 to Vague on Sat Feb 13 10:28:24 2021

    Hello Vague,


    On Friday February 12 2021 22:50, you wrote to Lee Lofaso:

    1) There is no node 1:3603/9999 in the nodelist.
    2) There isn't even a net 3603.
    3) Real names are tradition in Fidonet.

    So, who are you?



    Cheers, Michiel

    Indeed. I'm sorry, but I forgot the Q-code for this question, maybe you can remind me? My immediate thought QRU didn't compile. 8-)

    Can it be that he's a node in the strange nodelist I got a week ago? A Danish attempt to overtake the FidoNet?

    Hello Vague,

    1) There is no node 1:3603/9999 in the nodelist.
    2) There isn't even a net 3603.
    3) Real names are tradition in Fidonet.

    So, who are you?

    Very interesting. I do know he's a troll who recently crawled out from
    under a rock in Dove-Net. Looks like he's impersonating a Fido node,
    can anyone see the "via" lines of his messages and know what hub is
    being exploited?

    As Wilfred already has explained, there is no Via lines in echomail, but we do have Path lines. And the Path line to my system may be like Wilfred's:

    X-JAM-PATH2D: 135/391 300 3634/12 640/1384 221/1 203/0 2

    So I second Wilfred's suggestion. I just hope that Largo_FL has nothing to do with Mar-a-Lago. That would be too much, thinking of Lee's previous suggestions here. 8-)

    Yes, thank you. Now wondering why he's spoofing the 1:3603/9999
    address... Stupidity, or deception?

    So my guess would be: mister Vague is David Duff...

    sounds like he just needs to go back over his configuration and fix the FTN addresses in his fidonet areas, then... a simple thing to fix, really... certainly nothing worth flamage and heavy bombardment...

    I just hope that Largo_FL has nothing to do with Mar-a-Lago.

    Largo, Fla is on the west coast of florida on the other side of Old Tampa Bay from Tampa... Mar-a-lago is on the east coast just south of West Palm Beach...

    Nice. So I wonder why he's posting from an apparent address of 1:3603/9999 ?

    Misconfiguration, or attempted misdirection?

    net3603 used to cover the tampa area... the entire state of florida is now covered by one net, net135...

    IIRC, david is a returning operator and he appears to have set up using the old net and temporary node number used for applying for a node... i would guess that he configured his system using the temp number and just hasn't
    gone back to change everything to use his actual assigned address... a simple oversight... probably encumbered by using a configuration script or similar tool when configuring fidonet for his system...
