-————Gawker complained that Palin has since deleted the account, and suggested she was trying to destroy evidence.————
I took this quote from a different link. Can you believe the mentality of these idiots?
1) The idea was that the sea of Anonymous /b/tards would download the emails, upload porn, and cause all manner of mischief.
The McCain Campaign better watch out for these cretins!
2) This afternoon, in a thread that was later deleted, an individual claiming to be the original poster gave his account of what happened. Ive attached screencaps. Heres the text. The original poster used the name rubico. The linked email address for the poster was firstname.lastname@example.org.
To an FBI or Secret Service folks who may read this, go get him!!!!!
3) I read though the emails ALL OF THEM before I posted, and what I concluded was anticlimactic, there was nothing there, nothing incriminating, nothing that would derail her campaign as I had hoped, all I saw was personal stuff, some clerical stuff from when she was governor . And pictures of her family
L00s3r, u r pwn3d, enjoy ur time in jail!
after the password recovery was reenabled, it took seriously 45 mins on wikipedia and google to find the info, Birthday? 15 seconds on wikipedia, zip code? well she had always been from wasilla, and it only has 2 zip codes (thanks online postal service!)
the second was somewhat harder, the question was where did you meet your spouse? did some research, and apparently she had eloped with mister palin after college, if youll look on some of the screenshits that I took and other fellow anon have so graciously put on photobucket you will see the google search for palin eloped or some such in one of the tabs.
I found out later though more research that they met at high school, so I did variations of that, high, high school, eventually hit on Wasilla high I promptly changed the password to popcorn and took a cold shower
Password recovery exploited. Not much of a "hack". Yawn.
Ping over here
Given the thuggery coming out of the Obama Campaign, I am not buying this ‘explanation’ just yet. I hope others don’t as well.
The DUmmies et al. are kinda wetting themselves over this. First they were giddy about this event -- now they are worried and think this is a Rovian trick designed to contine the storyline that Palin is being unfairly attacked.
Too bad for them that Gov. Palin is squeaky clean. You just know if there was some troopergate stuff or anything bashing hillary then it would be reprinted allover the place and we would be TOTALLY screwed.
How do I do that?
From basement to graybar hotel in one stupid lesson.
the dem loons dig even deeper.
went on to the huff
this is an example of their garbage.
“”Bristol Stared Straight Ahead And Levi Had The Glazed Look Of A Trapped Feral Animal”:
an article that the author wrote about their body language at an event and how if he were levi’s parents, he’d ask for 500,000 to be quiet until election day.
slimes, all of them
Hack this Demonrats:
They had the outrageous scandal of her tanning bed, don’t forget that.
The funny part of this whole thing is the emails they ‘exposed’ show Palin is just as sincere in private as she is to the cameras- same values, same areas of important. It shows she is genuine.
If he was really only behind one proxy, then I’d be surprised if he isn’t already in custody. He certainly can look forward to waking up to the FBI at the door if he’s not.
Yep, come to think about it, it wasn’t that hard at all, considering how much of Governor Palin’s personal info the MSM has thrown out over the past two weeks.
Why do so many password-recovery doodads require people to use stupid questions? There are many things that I will remember for a lifetime, but few people are apt to know but me; indeed, some things nobody will know but me.
For example, 'What was the name of the singer you saw at Ontario Place during childhood'. I saw exactly one concert there, and I remember some of the songs from the concert as well as the identity of the lead singer. I suppose a stranger who was really desperate might conceivably be able to figure out when my parents and I were in Canada, and then cross-check that with a schedule of Ontario Place concerts, but I doubt that would be a realistic attack. Of course, my parents and siblings might remember some of that information, and perhaps even the concert itself, but strangers wouldn't have a chance.
BTW, one of my pet peeves is web sites that have various requirements for passwords but don't state those requirements at the login page. I can't see that putting such information on the login screen would compromise the security of any site that allows free public accounts.
