I saw spam reports for the IP and the email domain address, so I've blacklisted the latter.

I've been banning bots with addresses in Russia and India with email addies ending in "greatbigdickpills.com", but sometimes I gotta leave it to the experts.

Usually if I'm unsure I run them through cleantalk or stopforumspam's websites...their datasets are pretty comprehensive and whenever I have doubted them, I've regretted it later on.

By which he means we haven't had a Baby Jesus video in 12 years or so.

Most definitely yes.

This reminds me of the time Altered assaulted my email address with spam just to upset me, she succeeded. If you tolerate that, you should tolerate big penis pills all over the place. If not, someone needs to tell Altered she crossed a line. I didn't do it, because I wouldn't, but the irony is hilarious.

EDITED TO ADD: Altered hasn't posted in some time, and when she did she was suffering from multiple maladies. I would be comforted if she said something, believe it or not, I worry about her. For very good reason. It would cause me much less worry if she posted.

In a way she sort of reminds me of me if I were from some bizarro universe. I respect her decisions and all that but I don't want our disagreements to be over.

Pretty certain literally nobody cares how you "feel" about altered but you so...

You can of course prove it was her that bombed your inbox?

TBH you had it coming (assuming it was even her) - people dont usually take it kindly when someone is making creepy comments about oneself.

And being "too psychotic or autistic" to recognize social queues or right from wrong is not an excuse.

In the Time Before, I took walks by the river during my lunch break.  Not the pleasantly curated asphalt trails, favoured by joggers, but the behind-paths, the under-paths, with trees and rocks and mud and sinkholes and hostile squirrels.

Now, in the Plague Time, I work from home, far from the river.  I take my walks in the cold blackness of the Canadian pre-dawn, along the side-roads and alleys and those pedestrian bypasses used only by dog-walkers and schoolchildren.

I have learned to hate motion-sensitive lights.  I like walking in the dark.  Being blasted in the face at random by a floodlamp is a declaration of war.

I'm with you on the motion sensor lights.  They ruin my night vision and always make me paranoid since there are a few of my neighbors who might throw on the porch light and be standing under it with a shotgun.

Yeah. I can't bring myself to read it right now. Saw a Yahoo article this morning trying like hell to avoid saying "big ass professional grade truck bomb and we have no idea if there are more or whodunnit."

The Snivel War... Fucking EXACTLY THAT. Read Howl's most recent Hey Louie. He lays it out exactly as it is. Selfish punks having a tantrum about a reality they just don't like.

Nobody was killed. It was an RV which blared a message through a PA system for 15 minutes before the explosion to "Evacuate the area". The target appears to have been a major AT&T internet hub.

As far as the tantrums, lately I've been rubbing something like that in the faces of people I see calling for civil war. First, anybody who's smart and genuinely intends to engage in such action would not be talking about it on the internet, and second the whole reason people like Antifa and BLM actually got up and did something is because they actually believe the things they say they believe. Most of these yahoos do not. They just say whatever needs to be said at the time to score whatever they perceive to be points (see also: The Alt-Right Playbook: The Card Says Moops) This is why the left stands up for what they believe in, and those people don't precisely because they don't actually believe their own bullshit.

Unfortunately, that still leaves plenty of them who do believe the bullshit and are probably going to act on it.

If anybody needs me, I'll be hunkering in my bean fort.

There is human tissue in the wreckage, and there was a gunshot 15 minutes before the explosion.

My first thought was boogs, ain't gonna lie.  But now I think it was a crazy person who set the timer and then shot himself.

I wondered that as well.

Waiting to hear what the FBI have to say before jumping to any conclusions, but that's certainly a reasonable possibility based on the very little we know.

My gut is telling me that the bomb maker is not this nutjob. Something this well planned and executed is likely the work of a dedicated and intelligent madman. Teaching some random psycho schmuck how to set a timer ain't all that hard. I suspect that the problem may well be ongoing. I would give A LOT to hear a recording of the exact message in total. The blast scorched the shit out of trees rather far away indeed. That's a helluva heat wash. Enough to make me wonder if it might have been a bit more advanced in composition and construction than your average hillbilly fertilizer bomb. But I don't know enough to really speculate. I DO see that they're being dodgy as fuck about the deets and how to characterize the event. Whatever it is this is an opening move, not game over.

I'm leaning toward Qanon 5G conspiracy theorists or something. AT&T owns WarnerMedia, of which CNN is a part. Plenty of stuff to build a theory out of there.

Also, the voice in the recording sounds female.

This is BUY FAR the weirdest flash I ever saw. I am uncertain that the explosion was chemical in origin. Radiological might explain the heat wash that charred the shit out of trees many blocks away. I can't even begin to guess what the fuck that was, and that is very disquieting for me. I suspect this may have been some sort of demonstration of a novel energetic technology. There was not actual detonation per se that I could hear. I do not know what that sound was or why it and the flash lasted so long. I also don't know why afterwards it seems to have killed the mic but spared the camera. Possibly melting if the heat wash was hot enough, and it charred trees several blocks away on one side only. This is very bad news.
