In the comment section of my most recent Top Cat Marine Security post, I've had two strange trolling incidents today, both involving condescending sexist comments.
The first instance (22.214.171.124) was someone positing with a fake name and a fake email address with the name of a company known to have aviation contracts with the CIA. The company in question does not have a domain name nor do they have an employee of that name. I suspect I was meant to look into this and fall into fits of paranoia at the possible CIA connection. Nice try.
The second (126.96.36.199) was someone posting as "John Young" of Cryptome.org, a site that hosts documents that governments want to suppress. It didn't seem like something the real John Young would write. I picked up the phone and called him. Sure enough. He didn't write that. 188.8.131.52: that is fraud, you know.
NOTE TO TROLL: The real John Young takes real exception to his name being used this way.Add 184.108.40.206 to the troll list.
