Got this one jack*** I have to deal with

Posted 14 November 2007 - 03:12 PM

So the deal is pretty simple. The guy got my awardspace password, changed it, and the email that will send it, and added some offensive stuff to my front page. He changed my password back the next day, and I changed his message to something of my own:

Hey guys. My name is John McWeeny(Slightly altered that last name). If you are lookin for a little lovin', and don't mind if its a little small and the rest is a little chunky, gimme a call at 660-8681.

That is his real phone number, but it has no area code. Am I doing something illegal by displaying it? Or am I within legal bounds? If you think you know, but are not sure, make it clear, please. Id rather not get myself in trouble for taking bad legal advice. Any help you could offer would be greatly appreciated.

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0

If you're that concerned, contact a lawyer.

I'm going to leave this thread open for ridicule and that is it. No legal advice will be given as we are not lawyers.

lol. alrighty then. I decided it was worth it, so I'm gonna go ahead with it. If we get into a legal battle, he will come out lower then I will, because he is the one who defaced my page in the first place, whereas all I did was post a phone number with no area code. So there is really not much he can do about it.

My completely non legal opinion would be that it doesn't matter. It's just a phone number. If someone calls harassing him it's their fault.

I honestly think your way of getting back at him is lame and childish and you could have done far more if you know who he is.

Yep and I hope that you changed your password.

Personally removing the phone # from the US do not call list and signing up for all sorts of crap using his address email and phone# is more fun

you do know how to look up someone by there phone number right?

Show some panache next time.

I have to agree with skyhawk, doing what you're planning makes you even more immature and retarded, for the lack of a better word, than the person who did what he did. Best thing you can do is chalk it up to stupidity, grow up and move the hell on.

Thats just my opinion though :)

I guess the real lesson in all this is don't share or create easy to crack passwords with dumb ass people. Then he wouldn't of done what he done, you wouldn't be all jaded, you wouldn't have posted his number and then ask us if you are doing something legal.

It's all a vicious chain of events here. I say you do some jenkem and forget all about it.

In response to skyhawk, yeah it was childish. But honestly, I'm usually pretty laid back. This is the first time I've ever been pissed enough at someone.
On another note, I only just turned 17, so I'm not a man yet. :P.

I'm gonna have to agree with the rest of you as well. This was, at best, stupid. For one, if I had used any part of my brain that developed after I turned 3, then I could have come up with something way better. For another, all he really did was post some stupid sex comment. If it had been anyone else, I would have laughed it off, but I've always hated this guy, so I really didn't think. I removed the announcement and I'm gonna try to be more mature about it next time.
