    200 BAR,

    Hi I am Joey. I have already blocked the IP address and watching out for this sort of stuff all the time. Rest assure your accounts are safe. Just some silly spam bot that will never get in.
    Thanks,
    Joey

    Hmm, that is actually someone in Southern California who is using QuadraNet as their ISP. Oh, scratch that. It is the same guy who has been hacking the site. A company in San Francisco (noisebridge) joined the Tor network. So it is the same hacker getting routed through noisebridge because they are using Tor and noisebridge is now part of Tor.

    Maybe I'll bring this up at my next security meeting and see if this hacker is bugging anyone else. We can then hunt them down and cut them off.

    P.S. if you block this IP range you might block people from California, using QuadraNet as their ISP, from accessing ScubaToys.

    I once saved a man in Wichita just to watch him dive...(inventor)
