MATY Hacking

Someone just changed the e-mail address for your LiveJournal.com account "cybersprite12".
time and date of request: 02:12 08/04/2010
ip: xxxxxxxxxx
old email: xxxxxxxxx
new email: 7vrjlhllhn4398p6@spam.mustbedestroyed.com

Remember the other post in Sim Rants that I wrote? MATY has hacked into my livejournal and edited that, and are now ransacking my journal. They have also hacked my facebook, God only knows how because I never gave out that information. I managed to save my facebook from deletion, but beware of further MATY spam from cybersprite12, now rendered obsolete by me. Some of you say that I was immature by letting anger and frustration cause me to egg them on for as long as I did, but all I ever did was post. Hacking my forum, my facebook, and my livejournal is taking it a step  too far.

LEAVE ME ALONE. I promised to leave YOU alone. Stop trying to ruin me just because you think you're everything.

I also found this email (now deleted) added to my facebook account.

bilkenkat120@yahoo.com

If you know who that is, please tell me. But really, all this over some posts and broken rules on a FORUM. This is my second account, as they have deleted the other new one I made.

this is the same post that you put in sim_rants. This doesn't explain the wank to me. You're putting yourself out as the victim, but from what I can see, there's a lot more to the story.

Whatever, so it's apparently perfectly okay for them to hack my facebook, LJ, and whatever else they can find but it's oh so horrible for me to break some rules and call them out on their bullshit. What a world, I swear...

I never said that. I did suggest you report them to LJ abuse, but shit, if you're gonna dance around the bull waving flags and baring your ass, you've got to expect that it'll charge you.

And what do you expect me to do, knit?

How do I know that they won't find my parents' bank accounts or something? It's more serious than it sounds. I know I'm just a stupid little kid to you, but could you at least attempt to understand that I'VE NEVER BEEN HACKED?

Right. Seriously? Change your security settings. Dump all the admin on your site. Stop being an ass.

Once again, done. But this coming from the person spamming my post with gifs.

The gifs sum up what I'm thinking. Also, welcome to LJ. We like gifs.

This is not the correct format for a sim_wank post. A correctly formatted sim_wank post would be from someone poking at you for YOUR behaviours.

Thank you very much. Please try again.




No, really. Please try again. It's funny.

we have been quite light on wank around these parts lately, so it's still an amusing submission :)

Breaking the rules and pitching a fit at yet another community? You really don't learn, do you?

Might I also suggest filing reports with Facebook and everywhere else they've hacked so that you don't get into too much trouble there?

Oh, also: whatever you did to piss them off, stop doing it.

You never actually promised to leave us alone. I believe, in fact, that you continued to make empty threats to hack MATY well after being warned repeatedly that pissing off Pescado was a Bad Idea.

Dragging this drama into other forums is also not leaving us alone. URDOINITWRONG.

So what am I supposed to do then? Sit around and be quiet about it, like a good little '12'? I'm pretty sure if you were hacked, you'd be happier than a cat in a cheezburger factory. Just stop it. Stop calling me stupid because it really isn't fair. Stop making fun of me because I'm in trouble and no one cares.

Or is cyberbullying the norm these days? If one of you did find me and shoot me, would you be laughing then? Would you come and throw LURK MOAR signs over my grave?

Why is it so hard for YOU to stop? Are you just simply trying to wipe me off the face of the earth? Leave me alone, already!I don't deserve any of this crap!

Frankly, yes. When you are hacked (which you weren't, this was social engineering, totally different beast), you reinstall, restart, clean up as best as you can and deal with it.

I was a network administrator for four years. My servers had been exploited, I've had malware on my personal computer, I've had my passwords changed in the past. Not once have I bleated about it as much as you have.

NO ONE IS GOING TO SHOOT YOU. Internet wars stay on the internet. Anyone who takes things out of the internet into real life is a stupid-head and insane.

Disclaimer: I like MATY. I read MATY daily. I've smacked a couple of n00bs, though I'm mostly too much of a "stupid F" to say anything. I don't remember picking on you, though, and if you'll read what I say carefully, there's nothing I'm telling you that will give me any ability to hassle you.

1. Stop playing the innocent victim. You were not hacked (social engineering =/= hacking). Pescado is not going to come shoot you. If you stop calling attention to yourself, everyone on MATY will (eventually) get bored or distracted and forget all about you.

2. Stop going to MATY. This means: stop making sock accounts, stop reading it (you're showing up as there even as I type), and go away. If you can't Sim without MATY hacks, only view the boards logged-out (which will keep you away from reading any of the stuff about you), get your hacks, and go.

3. Stop being so easy to find/account-hijack. Delete this LJ. Deactivate your old Facebook. Get a new email address (get *multiple* new email addresses, in fact--Gmail makes this easy, because you can read/reply to all of your addresses from one account, but that's just a suggestion). Use different email accounts for different types of things: don't use the same address for "real life" stuff and "internet" stuff, for example.

Get a new facebook. Get a new LJ. Get a new account on whatever other forums you frequent that you even *suspect* might have been noticed. For all of the above, DO NOT USE ANY VARIATION OF "AUSTERE" OR "CYBERSPRITE" IN THE NAME. Do not join sim_wank or sim_rants. Do not talk in public Internet spaces about what happened to you, how much you hate MATY/GoS/Pescado, etc. Don't friend anyone with your new LJ for a (good long) while unless you're sure you can trust them.

GET NEW PASSWORDS. Use different passwords for every account. (At the VERY LEAST, use different passwords for your "internet" and "real life" logins, but every account = better.) Google for guidelines on coming up with secure passwords. (Longer than 16 characters, letters/numbers/symbols, using capital letters and lowercase, DO NOT USE ENGLISH WORDS OR ANYTHING DIRECTLY ASSOCIATED WITH YOU.) This is a pain in the neck, but it will help keep people out of your accounts. If you absolutely cannot remember them, write them down ON PAPER. You can presumably hide a piece of paper from your parents and sibling(s). There is no way anyone from MATY is going to see what you wrote on paper.

4. STOP GOING TO MATY. This is so important that I'll say it twice. I know you're hurt and frustrated and angry, but you are making things ten thousand times worse for yourself. You're not hurting/upsetting anyone there. You're hurting yourself and making this last much longer than it would have. (Hint: If you'd gone away when you were banned, none of the rest would have happened.)

5. STOP BEING AN ASS ON THE INTERNET. You're obviously a fairly unhappy person, at least at this point in your life. I'm guessing you're also lonely, and want to find some kind of an internet community where you fit in. At this point in time, the Sims community is not going to be that place for you. (Yes, even if you come back as another person. You'll do something that reminds someone of Austere, there will be some internets detectives involved, and it will all start again. I'm sorry about that, but it's what happens.)

Find another interest--I'm sure you already have some. Find Internet communities related to that interest. Make sure you understand (and follow!) the rules of those communities. Make sure you lurk long enough to have an idea of expected behavior, and follow it. If you're not happy with that idea, find a different community with different rules.

Even if you don't believe any of your behavior at MATY (or anywhere else) pre-banning was irritating, immature, sexist-creep-y, or wrong, when you go to post in this new community, think to yourself, "Did I say something like this elsewhere? Did people react badly? Should I probably assume that most people on the Internet are going to react like that? (hint: YES) Should I avoid that behavior if I want people to like me, even if I don't see anything wrong with it myself? (hint: YES, again)."

If people call you on your behavior, especially if it's multiple people, stop that behavior or find another place to hang out where it's OK.


Also, seriously, if there's an adult you trust in your life, go talk to him/her about this whole situation. Get it off your chest, have a good cry, get a hug, and then ask for advice on how to interact with people so that this stuff doesn't happen again. When you get the advice, listen to it. I suggested an adult because they're likely (not certain, but likely) to react more rationally to the situation than another 17-year-old girl would. If there's no adult, though, go find one of your RL friends and vent/cry/get the hugs. Then stay off the Internet (except for homework or something similar) for a few days. Do other stuff you enjoy. Give people some time to get bored with the lack of response from you.

And honestly? Try to find somewhere that makes you happy--somewhere you like the other people and want to make positive contributions. I really do hope you can find one.

(And yes, I know this is tl;dr, but I've been seeing your behavior for months and really do want to help.)

^ all of that. I like MATY, I'm regularly at MATY although I don't post anymore. (My horrible anxiety, let me show you it, or not, as is the bright idea at MATY.)
I felt sorry for you before, but then you just kept on, and on, and on, and then I felt you deserved some of it. Clearly you were getting some kind of thrill or little satisfaction from the attention, or were enjoying your own self righteousness about the "apathy" you felt you were showing there. I don't know, it was like watching a train wreck. Now I feel sorry for you again, not because of all this shit, but it seems there is something up with you so that you can not clearly see what you were doing wrong in other peoples eyes, and the fact that you just weren't able to let it go and walk away. You kept it up and you were like a broken record(kinda like Celeste did). Now you are going everywhere trying to gather sympathy when the shit hits the fan for you. Yeah it's a shitty thing to do to you, but you've been baiting people for a long time now. Sooner or later someone was going to do it.

Contact the websites that you feel were compromised. Let them know that your accounts were compromised and do what you need to do to bring them back into your control. Then walk away from the places that are clearly causing you this stress. It is not healthy, and not healthy for you to keep going back to it. Stay away from these sites for a while(ie: more then a week for sure) and give yourself time to think and de-stress.
Also, the wonderful thing about the internet? You can go elsewhere or you can restart. You can find someplace better suited to you, or you can dump your old accounts, old screen names, start over, never have to mention your old one, and next time try to think a little more before you press that post button and ask yourself if it's really a good idea to post whatever it is, is it going to get a bad reaction that you will then have to deal with? People will start to realize who you are if you start showing your ass again though. Take the opportunity to try to piece together what all you did to set everyone off.
Restarts don't work well at MATY though, the accounts can't be deleted, socks are deleted, and people have long memories, but honestly, you really did not fit in, so I'd chock that site up as a loss.

Don't you realize that NOBODY feels sorry for you. Just quit bitching, quit bothering websites. You're not getting sympathy from ANYONE. Don't even talk about MATY or GoS. Just shut the hell up about any of that because frankly, you're interesting when you're whining about how nobody will leave you alone. I'm serious about that. Stop whining or bitching about how everyone has a vendetta against you because nobody gives a shit. If you keep doing so then you're going to be in a world of hurt, not from me, but from people like Pescado. Seriously now.

I'm a regular at MATY (as others here) and it takes a really big piece of fuckery to get Pescado to ban you for life from that place. He puts up with a lot, but you took the cake. He was right to do it, and I hope you learn the lesson-don't piss him off.
For you to go about getting his attention like this is beyond stupid-it's insane. It's like standing up in the middle of a battle and waving a flag-"Shoot me, I'm here."
So he shot you. Stop being an idiot and get a real life. Turn off that computer and start acting like a human being for once. Whatever your problems are, there are professionals out there to help you. Just don't expose them on the Internets..it doesn't work.
BTW, if you're that infamous on MATY, you will be banned from other similar sites just from your reputation as a troublemaker. Pescado's judgment is regarded as being pretty fucking good. If he says you're an idiot and bans you, you're an idiot and deserved to be banned.
You're also one of only 5 people who have ever been banned from MATY, out of thousands who are registered there. Proud of your wank?
Don't be. It's not something you can put on your resume.

Lmao. Seriously? You're asking someone to get a new hobby/interest? Who are you? No one. Look, of course, I do not know the full story to all this talk about this one particular person; apparently they've done some damage to their reputation, if you will, on the "internet".

To that person: It seems you may need to learn rules of forums. LEARN them. Learn from this VERY big mistake. Start over, stop cussing, stop telling people such harsh things that you wish upon them. Because, THIS will never go away, if you don't. You made your bed. Now sleep in it. Change your usernames, and PW's so that they cannot hack anymore, and also.. don't even use the same username anymore? Get a whole new live journal, etc, etc,etc. And START OVER.

To the rest of you: Not only does s/he need to grow up, but you all do as well. Hacking into her accounts? Really? How old are you? 12? Grow up, People from MATY. Mmkay? You're probably some teenagers with little to no experience of "life" and really need to check yourself. And if you're older than that? Lol... you really need to get over yourselves. :)

S/he broke rules. Ban her and move on. End of story.

Telling her to get a new hobby? GET over yourself. No one has to stop liking the Sims, just because you say so. Just because this person isn't someone you like. You're NO ONE. Unless you're their parent/or God. Seriously. Get over it.

No, you do not have to change your interests for these "people" that think they're better than others. You just need to change your ENTIRE Attitude. That is all.
