I received a rather hostile comment the other day on my last post. It was from a person claiming to be an old neighbor, and loaded with accusations and falsities. I tracked the IP address to a certain hotel in California, and know exactly who sent it. I’m not worried about why they sent it, but I figured I should let them know publicly that any further actions could cost them. Let’s go through a fun law, shall we?


18 U.S.C. § 1028 : US Code – Section 1028: Fraud and related activity in connection with identification documents, authentication features, and information

(a) Whoever, in a circumstance described in subsection (c) of
this section -
(7) knowingly transfers, possesses, or uses, without lawful
authority, a means of identification of another person with the
intent to commit, or to aid or abet, or in connection with, any
unlawful activity that constitutes a violation of Federal law, or
that constitutes a felony under any applicable State or local
shall be punished as provided in subsection (b) of this section.
(b) The punishment for an offense under subsection (a) of this
section is -
(D) an offense under paragraph (7) of such subsection that
involves the transfer, possession, or use of 1 or more means of
identification if, as a result of the offense, any individual
committing the offense obtains anything of value aggregating
$1,000 or more during any 1-year period;
(2) except as provided in paragraphs (3) and (4), a fine under
this title or imprisonment for not more than 5 years


I’m not into playing games. Make up another fake name to sling insults at me, and I will report you. The internet is NOT anonymous, no matter how it seems. I purposefully do not post names on here, even though I know how easy it really is to find a person’s real identity. It’s a courtesy to my family, friends, and readers. I will not post yours either.

Have a wonderful day!
