Kimble from www.kimble.org have spammed all members grrrrrrr I'm very sorry about that and since he has a history of being a world-class (Nasa, Pentagon etc) hacker I frankly don't know how to prevent it from happenning next time. All I can say is "Im sorry" and we'll try to get Kimble to understand this is not the way to get customers.

Apparrently he have spammed million of members on other forums as well. :nono:

Kimble here is you chance of saying "Excuse me" and promise it will never happen again on m5board.com.

Who the hell is Kimble?? I have never heard of him. His way of drawing attention to a 30,000 entry fee rally is beyond me.

In order to avoid future spamming one could set the Default Thread Subscription Mode to No Email Notification. I did not receive Kimble's email because of that (I believe). Gustav, correct me if I'm wrong please.

Kimble possesses some serious computer skills!
:eek:

To be honest i wasn't bothered at all.. though i'm sure some will be.

Let's be honest .. all these chat/forum pages use very very similar programming language/security measures.. you crack one you crack them all.. (php for example accounts for about 90% of the forums i use.. !)

beyond my ken/abilities..but not beyond his clearly .. !! :cheers:

Cheers

I think Kimble just thought the enthusiasts of this forum would like to know about the rally. But he couldn't just sign and post it. He had to do it his own way. It's a minor thing, it's not like he sent a 5MB e-mail that filled up your e-mail box. I'm sure if he wanted to do serious harm, he would have...

It's his "style", some will like it, some don't... but i've got to say, flying in a replacement because the AMG wheel didn't LOOK good :eek: This guy has seriously excess of money... And that is rarelly a nice thing ;).

Kimble called me and he promised that he would never do this to m5board.com again as well as apologized. I myself would not think it would be a problem to receive that kind of spam once, but I have a responsibility towards my members not to deliver spam, which I stand by.

He also told me he would not distribute this software either. So case closed.

It definately wasn't the right way for him to handle it. I think he would have gotten a much better response had he handled things differently. Get permisssion to post a thread about the event and I am sure that the response would have been more positive.

Agree 110%.

I did not get any PM about this, but IMO this board would benefit greatly by removing everything that has to do with Kimble`s madness.

Wow... been a lurker for years... and I never would've expected a PM.

First of all, I would like to comment on a few things.

1. The term hacker had been abused... thanks to the media. Actually originally hacker != bad guys. In fact hackers are a bunch of people who enjoys exploit things and discover neat tricks.

2. IMHO, this is SAPM, even if it was not delivered via e-mail (some of your got PM notification, but that's something else).

3. If I might be blunt, I wonder if kimble actually wrote the code himself. I won't judge, but there are a lot discussions with regards to this person, just google for them yourself.

The point I am trying to make is that...

If kimble actually implemented the attack/hack yourself... Then I actually got some respect for this dude. While it is still a shame that one would go so low to get his message acrossed.

If kimble actually PAID some sapmmer to do it, or hired some mercs. Then this would be the low of the low. :rolleyes:
