Right Wing Attacks on IMCs Nationwide
24 Oct 2004
Currently, many IMCs are either unavailable, blocked, or redirected.
Protest Warrior member and owner of the Right Wing Extremist website (both Texas based) are waging a non-stop war attempting to shut down all IMCs. They have been taking advantage of various "flaws" in the IMC software (specifically, flaws based on the assumption that most humans are not sociopaths).

Austin IMC is down.
NH IMC is down.
WMASS is redirected.
Many others are redirected as well. NYC has deleted the offending post from their newswire.

No doubt we are either dealing with a teenager or a sociopath adult. It is doubtful that law enforcement would be of any use in stopping him. However, collectively IMC should be able to sue him for these denial of service attacks. I encourage members of the NLG to look into how we could sue him for these attacks which, in reality, amount to a form of "denial of service" attack.
