About the only thing that is accurate in this article is the screenshot of Patterico's sitemeter which showed Dustin's visit and his IP address. I do apologize to my readers, Ben, the original @Dust92, and even Dustin for getting so many things wrong in this blog post. However, eight months later, Dustin still claims that the screenshot shows him visiting my blog and not Patterico's which is a deliberate lie, as opposed to my honest mistakes.)
Dustin is almost definitely Ben McIlwain, a far left-leaning Wikipedia editor and longtime punkster hacker allegedly living in Maryland, now.
When he used his Dust92 Twitter account to attack my tweets about this article on Twitter, I found out - through the website Topsy - that Dustin had actually started that account in May.
On May 4, a Twitterer called Sally Rusli using the tag @sallyberliana welcomed Dust92 to Twitter.
This RT by Dust92 magically turns into a Tweet by Mandarin Chinese speaking SallyBerliana, which Dustin refused to explain, when asked politely at Patterico's website on Tuesday.
This is the picture attached to the Dust92 account in May (Note: I'll add a larger picture, later):
There is a website which contains many articles - including pictures - of Wikipedia editors who have engaged in alleged sock puppetry and hacking. There is one such page for Cyde Weys aka Ben McIlwain. I'm not going to link to it directly, since it contains unproven allegations and is written in a horribly smearing manner, but the html address can be seen in the following picture I'm posting.
I saved a copy of the following page in case it is pulled, but even if the information on the page is entirely accurate, I think whomever wrote it should be ashamed. It's written in a menacing and disgusting manner and if my email accounts weren't hacked I would just email this information to Patterico instead of posting it here. But six weeks of menacing by Dustin is enough, so out with the troll:
That is obviously the same person, skinnier younger before on Twitter and heavier older after at that Website. There is a more recent photo of Ben McIlwain in that same article.
Even though Dustin pretends to be conservative and/or libertarian-leaning at Patterico's blog and others across the web, he writes at his CydeWeys blog at http://www.cydeweys.com/blog/about/
"You could definitely describe me as liberal progressive, including nearly all of the views that entails."
"This is far from my first website, nor is it really even my first blog."
"The kind of people I hate the most are the willfully ignorant."
At his old blog, Ben described his philosophy: http://www.cydeweys.com/archive/philosophy.html
|"Perhaps my other post was confusing you all; let me say that once and for all, I am a strict Atheist; that below was simply some of my more wacky alternative theories.|
That said, let me bring up a point I've considered. What creature likes being worshipped? In what creature is worship a desirable trait? Boring worshipped is disgusting - no entity of any advanced intelligence should want it. Thus, a God, assuming It should exist, would despise being worshipped by humans. The greatest entity of all would not need the opinions of us flawed peoples. That is why I detest religion - a lot of time is wasted praying to some God or other when, if the God was real, it would detest all of the annoying attention. And look at how much time is spent praying and revering and worshipping God - for many people, it's on a weekly basis. Personally, I think a God would reward with Heaven those who do not waste their time foolishly embarrassing It; those who discover a good moral code for themselves and do not depend on the punishment of God to keep them in line.
If there is no God, as I believe, all this worship and time wasted of religion, is moot. If there is a God, not only is the effort moot; it actively sends that person to Hell; for no ultimate Entity would enjoy being worshipped."
This update will be updated throughout the day, and as often as possible, just like the menacing comments by Dustin and his hacker socks that never end at this June 30 Patterico post here: http://patterico.com/2011/06/30/someone-smarter-than-me-explain-why-this-is-not-possible
Update 2 (My blog internal traffic claims that I only had one visitor all day, so I guess my updates are just for Ben aka Dustin...at least for now):
This screenshot of Topsy shows that his old avatar is showing up on some of the newer @dust92 tweets:
And now he seems to have modified his new avatar of the Wikipedia page to add a clown face, since this is a laughing matter, of course:
Original post follows:
Last night, shortly after reading Dustin's latest comment (at the time: #2548 at www.patterico.com/2011/06/30/someone-smarter-than-me-explain-why-this-is-not-possible ) at the June 30 Weinergate conspiracy thread at www.Patterico.com (where he and his hacker friends have been menacing innocent women and multiple sources of mine, by repeating their names over and over and over again, while mixing in indirect threats and ridiculous allegations) I took a peek at Patterico's Sitemeter.
I noticed an incoming link from a Wikipedia uploaded media page that I had blogged about previously because I thought it blocked traffic at my blog by launching some kind of DDOS attack (just educated guesses, of course).
More info at my blog at this link: www.aanewz.blogspot.com/2011/07/dictator-felix-and-wikipedia.html
Last night I discovered that hacked twitter accounts can be controlled by multiple users, and you can easily match who is hacking which account by checking to see what communications device is used.
The hacked Patterico mostly tweets to Qritiq and me while using an iphone, which may be what Dustin owns (he claims that he doesn't use Twitter).
The hacked Patterico ignores most of my tweets that show his site is being hacked by socks leaving comments (Sitemeter reveals July was one of his worse months ever for traffic, after having one of his best months ever in June, but he probably has more comments in July than any other).
But last night, he sent me this odd tweet: http://twitter.com/#!/Patterico/status/97819396646514689
I tweeted Patterico the evidence, even though I know he's hacked (and I suspect hackers might have turned my tweets private), but I assume he will might be able to still see my tweets in his incoming email account.
Last night I first tweeted, "@Patterico website is also getting traffic from uploaded picture at Wikipedia which may be some sort of DDOS attack: http://t.co/lLygUOS
Then, I tweeted, "@Patterico say hi to Dustin! His IP address 74.192 142 is coming from Georgetown, Texas & can be seen in your sitemeter visiting from Wiki" www.twitter.com/#!/ronbryn/status/97818438776520704
I tweeted, "@Patterico, Dustin must be Wikipedia editor & visits blogs to spam them from link: (note: pic may slow your computer) [DON'T CLICK ON THIS LINK!!] http://t.co/9zDyS2U
Then I tweeted, "Well, Dustin I'm 99 percent certain you're not qaeda now, big sigh of relief You're just a hactivist punking conservatives from Wikipedia." www.twitter.com/#!/ronbryn/status/97820819232792576
I then tweeted www.twitter.com/#!/ronbryn/status/97822261746216961
@Patterico IP 74.192.142. coming from wikipedia pic www.sitemeter.com/?a=stats&s=s17pattericospontifications&v=92&r=9&vlr=11&pg=41&d=731 &
I then tweeted www.twitter.com/#!/ronbryn/status/97822758251147264
In the following tweet I accidentally wrote Clyde instead of Cide, because there was a typo at my blog post regarding Cide Weys: www.aanewz.blogspot.com/2011/07/dictator-felix-and-wikipedia.html
I then tweeted www.twitter.com/#!/ronbryn/status/97823032424402944
@Patterico Dustin's name at wikipedia might be Clyde Ways: www.aanewz.blogspot.com/2011/07/dictator-felix-and-wikipedia.html
I then tweeted www.twitter.com/#!/ronbryn/status/97825276465131520
I then tweeted to Patterico, "Of course, I'm no expert on that...I could be wrong...but man how can someone be so dumb not to disguise IP coming from Wiki?"
This is the blog where I found Dustin's name linked to his IP address and with his unmistakeable voice: repeating names over and over again, smearing everyone, but then, in the end, choosing to pick one to defend in a manner that reads polite during first read, but calculating and menacing when you realize (my nickname for Dustin based on a treacherous character from Shakespeare's Othello) Iago's intentions.
This is Dustin's version left early Monday morning at Patterico's website, which I believe I've proven is full of lies and distortion, but readers (and future lawyers, judges and, perhaps, law enforcement officials) can make their own determinations and judgements.
Sometime last night my internet gateway stopped working. It’s never happened before. My router was fine.
This morning when it starts working again I have an email from Patterico notifying me that Ron is broadcasting my IP address and geographic location to the world. I have a normal firewall in place and normal security settings, though I won’t go into detail. I’m not a hacker, but I’m technically inclined and know how to stay relatively safe on the internet.
The only blog I read related to Weinergate last night was Patterico’s and Qritiq’s. I’m not sure how Ron would have gotten my IP address last night, but if he had it for a while and was patient before sharing it with the world, he may have gotten it because I’ve clicked on a few of his links. Lee Stranahan explained that he will place links and then somehow monitor them to see whose IP connects, and then share that information with the world if he’s suspicious of someone (his white whale, Mr Wolfe, of course).
Just to be clear, I don’t think Lee did this to me (he’s had my IP for ages and doesn’t care about me). He simply explained how it worked and that he did this to Dan (who, unlike me, uses a proxy). I guess this is the new ethics, though. If you’re saying something a thug doesn’t want you to say, they will root you out. Lee and Ron share that, though they are not comparable in sanity.
Anyway, unfortunately Ron’s information this time is accurate. Usually when he talks about me he’s lying, but when he’s sharing my personal info he’s somehow gotten (I don’t read his blog) he’s telling the truth.
The more I think about this, the more perplexing it gets because I thought the links I clicked (of ron’s) went to Google’s blogger and Youtube services, which do not provide IP addresses. But I’m not really hiding myself (nor doing anything worth trying to hide) so I can’t really say how he found me.
Is it realistic that someone with my IP could cause my gateway to malfunction? My gateway has been plugged in for years without problems until practically the same time Ron noted the IP.
Comment by Dustin — 8/1/2011 @ 7:12 am
Then, in this next comment, note especially how Dustin jumps on my typo, Clyde, when the name is actually Cyde, and he pretends to not know the exact details about my tweets.
Dustin added one more relevant comment, repeating the same nonsense unnecessarily in order to create confusion and ridiculously portray himself as the true victim (when his menacing comments are all over that 6/30 post and the evidence that I've been harassed can be seen on my twitter feed...and I've spent five weeks trying to help Patterico, while Dustin pretends to by menacing - and he spends hours and hours posting comments on other issues when I spend all my time trying to help innocent women and conservative bloggers he and his hacker friends have threatened):
Dustin has somehow stopped traffic at this blog and is referring to my expunged police record again, so I left another comment at Patterico. He might play games with my words so I copy and pasted it before I hit submit:
Go ahead and play your hacker tricks, socks, no one will believe them. This is my first comment here in weeks and will be my last.
Of course, you jerks are lying. That is not Greg or Gennette or Patterico or Goatsred leaving comments the last week...many of the things you have them say don't even match up with stuff they've told me themselves. You're a bunch of lying clowns.
I've refrained from commenting here again, because I assume you will sock me (but I'm copying this and adding to the end of my Dustin article, now).
Dustin smeared me by referring to an expunged police record which Patterico deleted from this website. He had no right to refer to an expunged arrest, which is illegal.
I was arrested for arguing with police in Florida who refused to investigate the abduction and rape of my sister, and charges were dropped and my record was expunged.
Dustin knows that, since I had to explain it on Twitter since he won't stop referring to my expunged "criminal" past, but continues to call me a criminal when he's the one going to prison.
My article is called "You Decide If Dustin Lies or Distorts" and his reaction is to open up a twitter account and lie that it contains viruses, etc:
Just like Neal Rauhauser would do....anyway....Dustin is also lying by claiming CYDE, not Clyde which was a typo as he knows, is a real name, when it's an alias, too.
Read his lying tweets at www.twitter.com/Dust92
You guys are probably playing some kind of game by making my tweets private, because you're Stalinist scum. I bet you delete this comments because I link to my blog which "reveals" the ip address of the thug Dustin who is sending DDOS attacks at this website.
There aren't even any incoming links on the Wikipedia upload page, so it's impossible for Dustin to come to this blog from that link. It is being used to DDOS attack this very site.
Comment by Ron Brynaert — 8/1/2011 @ 5:19 pm
I left another comment later, because I can tell Dustin is blocking hit to my blog and keeps calling me a criminal for an expunged false arrest:
And another (I'm not posting Dustin's absurd lies, since they don't even make sense, he has lost his cool, scared because the feds know his IP address, now):
I left this comment Tuesday morning:
