Thank you all for your warm welcomes back
<3. However, you may still have some questions so I think it's time to clear things up.
Firstly, I think it probably became apparent quite early on that this was a windup. Which it was. The long and the short is that I decided to take a break from TSR, leaving in such a fashion that would be relevant to the sort of things I do and in a manner which left unanswered questions. Trolololol (Eduard Khil
However, my "retirement" started to unravel over the course of the past week or two:
1. Besides the usual Anonfag van rides you hear about (h3h3h3 dumb ****s - the best hackers are the ones you've never heard of), there were also CEOP child porn raids in my area quite recently. Under no circumstances did I want anyone getting the wrong end of the stick and thinking I was somehow involved, because that is something I find just as unacceptable as most other sensible people would. If I do ever get raided and v& it would be nothing to do with nonceing.
2. Some nerk decides, in ostensibly amateurish fashion, to help themselves to this here database with its rather interesting password security policy. As 'Paranoia' is my middle name I couldn't possibly leave my password as was and thus came back to change it. In that vein, I'd be interested in knowing who the guilty party is seeing as the nature of the attack would suggest it was fairly carefully planned.
TL;DR - I pretended, perhaps with rather poor judgment, to get v& so I can temporarily leave TSR with a bit of a bang. **** goes down which may lead people to draw false conclusions. TSR gets t3h h4xx0r3d so I come back to change my password and decided to stick around.
So, no vans this time. That said I'd bet 10p that I appear on several watchlists given my area of expertise/interest and some of the other websites (absolutely nothing to do with illegal pornography
) and discussions I engage in.
