Yes. I used to stalk this awful indie gamedev. When he deleted his twitter I took over his identity writing insane shit in his style and now he can't get a job because that's the first page that google shows. It's been like a year, still going strong.
This is so devious, so petty, and so specific, that I believe you.
Well, he actually even made a new twitter to try and compete and then payed some indian fiverr guy 25$ to get more followers, but those followers don't contribute to search engine results. It's really been great fun
you are also the admin of wizchan.org
I like wrecking sites with sophisticated trolling techniques.
Right now I'm having a blast with a bit of a project. I can't really give away the details, but a rough outlime would be:
>make a thread pretending to have a lofty purpose.
>smear it with the usual bait and slurs
Eventually someone bites. It's not like I am too subtle doing this, the purpose is, after all, trolling the shit out of the place. I try to make it look hostile as possible, while still pretending the thread to be about benefitting mankind and society, so as to maintain plausible deniability. The goal is to drop the overall quality of the site. You wouldn't believe this but as obvious as this sounds, people are stupid enough to keep it up and keep fueling it,
The usual trolling techniques are all in effect, including samefagging, misrepresenting the other posters, and ad-hominems.
I'm actually having a blast because the site I'm on lends itself to this really well in spite of it's pretention of keeping quality and civil discussion, but in reality it's a sort of /pol/ in disguise.
All websites are subconsciously /pol/ in disguise.
Just dont lose sight of the larp.
wtf evil wizards or just normalfags(?)?
A person can very easily send an impersonation report and twitter tends to ban such accounts quickly. For that story to be remotely possible the victim just happened to have lost access to his email and phone number. Do you find that more likely than an anonymous person making up a troll story online?
Creating an account and start larping cost nothing, there isn't anything particulary difficult to do in that story.
i have a similar experience to you but a guy was making music so i mass reported his account (he had nudity in his youtube videos) then make a new one pretending to be him. he didnt have any contact so i just made twitter and stuff. i just reuploaded the stuff he made and he commented really mad and made videos saying that the new account isnt him so i just deleted his comments and then he dropped off the internet completely.
is there a way to make money doing this? like by reporting people to authorities or something?
i remember in the past there was a wizard who was keeping track of gangs on facebook or something and reporting them to fbi and he would post updates. was he making money from it or was it purely for a hobby
There are shill jobs that pay you to do that.
Did you read what the other guy said? Because nothing you said indicated that you do
I don't catfish or larp, instead I just like finding and cataloguing certain persons' (not celebrities) profiles and personal info. I keep a separate folder for it, a text file per person. Learning random specific details of other people's lives is exciting, and finding their "Internet history" is also very nice.
For a long time I didn't bother to write down these kinds of things and just kept the links to 100 profiles in my head, visiting them almost daily for months/years, but my memory is somewhat worse nowadays. Think I'll also start making backups of this stuff locally soon, as more and more websites die. With Google+ being killed off I lost some 3-4 photos, I have downloaded them to my phone but its storage got corrupted somehow; after around a year, I'm still sad.
I will probably never impersonate these people, although I have memorized all of their interests, quirks, speech style, etc, and pretending to be them would be a piece of cake. I can emulate their general behavior and reactions in my head, and I do it fairly often. But it's too uncomfortable and tiring to interact with people.
Excuse me if it's too off-topic. Has anyone else ever tried such stuff? I've been doing it for 8+ years.
I have had people do this to me but never crone it myself.
that sounds very unhealthy
Years ago I used to religiously troll the Yahoo Answers religion and spirituality section. For me the joy was seeing how dumb I could make myself appear while still having people believe I was serious. The community on Yahoo Answers back then was filled with idiots, lunatics and trolls, it was a riot.
Ah Yahoo answers
Now that was something. Now almost all such questions links to Quora or reddit.
WikiAnswers was good too. 11 years ago, they gave us this stupid crossword for homework in history class, and a shitload of people were going there for crossword answers. I searched the hardest one, and the answer was this wall of text followed by a blank line and "THE ANSWER TO THE CROSSWORD IS DE MEDICI". Fucking based.
Fuck Quora. Quora sucks. You get 1 answer and if you try to move onto the next one, it accountwalls you. No I will not sign up. Zoomers don't even know how bad they have it.
Quora has some interesting posts but it asks to check if I am 13+ all the time when I try browse I do not understand why I should have the hassle of proving I am not a baby instead of parents not letting their baby on the internet.
Been banned from Reddit at least 200 times, dozens of suspended accounts, once I got IP banned after threatening to raid an AMA with gore, got permabanned from 4chan, banned from tons of Minecraft servers (I only griefed garbage ones with landclaims and 20 donate spam messages), would be banned from CSGO if that was possible but instead all of my accounts are permanuted for being toxic in the chat.
how do you not get banned on reddit? some bitch can post about wanting to know if she needs stitches and sharing a picture of a cat scratch and when you say she is fine and not to bother you get banned and attacked by the retards.
I hate reddit normies so fucking much
You need an offline hobby.
I also paint figurines, write electronic music, and other stuff. Like to read too. I don't do that stuff on reddit much anymore because I'm a wagecuck.>>58129
True. You literally get banned for disagreeing or at least downvoted into obscurity. I lost my patience and just started posting imgur links to hard gore in reply to high level comments, definitely traumatized a few dozen normies. I wish halfchan would still raid them but sadly that's banned and probably illegal.
I've taken over a lot of accounts over the years, companies are more lax about it than you think.
I googled the first part of my email address and found a twitter with 20k followers on it. I contacted Twitter and said it's my account but my password has been stolen. They believed me and didn't ask for ID or anything.
I also reclaimed many runescape accounts in 2015-2016 by telling the support I had created the account originally in 2001 and lost the password. They gave me the accounts. Some had nice rare names that aren't easy to create anymore.
I also claimed an abandoned geocities pokemon site for myself which hadn't been updated for 10+ years. The customer support gave me the username and password eventually.
The only troll there is how much he streches 2 minutes of content into 9 minutes for that ad algorithm money.
I can think of a place where you would fit right in amongst the *ahem* ruling class. A clique, if you would.
To the evil wizards in this thread. All the things that you do will be judged by God in judgement day. You will provide an account of all your good and evil deeds in judgement day. If you are found evil then nothing can save you from God. Choose your side wisely wizzies
I am different anon, but yes we will have to give an account for all of our words, and it's written that all liars will have their part in the lake of fire
