Default someone (WL?) really hates laserchat!

something really odd happened in my chatroom, laser chat, last night. for those of you who weren't there, i'm gonna be pasting a log of it here (some lines cut for more briefness, and one swearword censored with [tt]***[/tt] - the word rhymes with "micky", for anyone who can't guess :P). anyway, this guy joined laser chat last night, seemed genuine enough, asking about WL products and being told our (low) opinions of them, then started acting real weird and disruptive. what i'm wondering is... random idiot? random troll? or WL employee? decide for yourselves, i guess apparently, the guys IP address should be located in Horseheads, New York, but narrowing an IP address's geographical location to such a small area isn't *always* completely accurate - pretty much definitely someone in new york, or someone using a proxy located there, though. lines where this guy talks have his name in green, to make it easier to see, and my comments mid-log are light blue italic.

[tt]--------------------
Oct 05 00:36:19 * DB_51 (db51@ecnet-261D532B.stny.res.rr.com) has joined #laserchat
Oct 05 00:36:19 * LaserBot gives voice to DB_51
Oct 05 00:36:26 <marianne> hi DB_51
Oct 05 00:36:29 <DB_51> hello
Oct 05 00:36:37 <DB_51> I need advice
Oct 05 00:36:49 <DB_51> Anyone know anything about Wicked Lasers?
Oct 05 00:36:54 <pseudonomen137> lol
Oct 05 00:36:57 <marianne> ummm
Oct 05 00:36:58 <marianne> yes
Oct 05 00:36:59 <Greenie>
Oct 05 00:37:00 <marianne> avoid them lol
Oct 05 00:37:03 <DB_51> o
Oct 05 00:37:04 <DB_51> ok
Oct 05 00:37:05 <DB_51> why
Oct 05 00:37:08 <marianne> you will be ripped off essentially
Oct 05 00:37:08 <DB_51> are they bad
Oct 05 00:37:13 <DB_51> o no good
Oct 05 00:37:25 <pseudonomen137> what are you trying to buy?
Oct 05 00:37:30 <marianne> they're low quality, mine failed within 14 hours of arrival and the replacement i got fluctuates like hell
Oct 05 00:37:38 <marianne> and there's cheaper alternatives
Oct 05 00:37:40 <Tom> Well I have had no problems with them
Oct 05 00:37:44 <Tom> yet
Oct 05 00:37:50 <Tom> knock on wood I guess
Oct 05 00:38:00 <DB_51> yea well I was thinking of a core
Oct 05 00:38:09 <DB_51> or maybe a 35 mW advance
Oct 05 00:38:09 <marianne> DB_51, i'd look at www.novalasers.com or www.laserglow.com or www.optotronics.com if i were you
Oct 05 00:38:23 <DB_51> ok
Oct 05 00:38:28 <DB_51> thank you
Oct 05 00:38:32 <DB_51> I will check these out
Oct 05 00:38:38 <marianne> yw
Oct 05 00:38:39 <Things> core is allright though?
Oct 05 00:38:45 <DB_51> but if I may ask what is wrong with Wicked Laders
Oct 05 00:38:45 <marianne> yeah most cores are ok
Oct 05 00:38:55 <Merl> core is good
Oct 05 00:39:06 <Merl> and the advanced recently has been performing over spec
Oct 05 00:39:14 <DB_51> what about destructive gear lasers?
Oct 05 00:39:16 <marianne> DB_51, apart from the frequent quality problems, and high prices, they also are just... pretty damn shady in terms of business ethics
Oct 05 00:39:28 <DB_51> o
Oct 05 00:39:34 <marianne> destructive gear from what i've heard... are fine, but they still look expensive to me
Oct 05 00:40:05 <Merl> DB it all depends on what you wan and how much you have to spend and which country you live in
Oct 05 00:41:27 <marianne> DB_51, some people are happy with their WL products. but personally, i'd avoid them like the plague, and there's many who'd agree with me.
Oct 05 00:42:16 <MarioMaster> i had no problems with them, but i only had a 35mw, their higher powered models seem to be defect ridden[/tt]

now this is where things go weird. suddenly, the guy starts trying to use the command to get admin privileges (!op), which, of course, does not work as he's not on the access list.

[tt]Oct 05 00:42:30 <DB_51> !commands
Oct 05 00:42:32 <Merl> DB i have had 3 spyderII from them
Oct 05 00:42:37 <Merl> all had to be returned
Oct 05 00:43:15 <Merl> other ppl have had no problem though
Oct 05 00:45:49 <DB_51> op
Oct 05 00:45:56 <DB_51> !op
Oct 05 00:46:15 <marianne> DB_51, you're not an op here
Oct 05 00:48:57 <DB_51> hmmm
Oct 05 00:49:06 <DB_51> yes I am
Oct 05 00:49:08 <DB_51> !op[/tt]

then he starts getting abusive...

[tt]Oct 05 00:49:39 <DB_51> screw you guys
Oct 05 00:49:43 <marianne> DB_51, do you go by any other nick?
Oct 05 00:49:49 <Tom> !op
Oct 05 00:49:49 * LaserBot gives channel operator status to Tom
Oct 05 00:50:03 <Tom> warning 1
Oct 05 00:50:04 <Merl> calm down guys
Oct 05 00:50:12 <DB_51> lick my laser ass
Oct 05 00:50:17 <Tom> warning 2
Oct 05 00:50:24 <DB_51> eat a fatty d***y
Oct 05 00:50:35 <Greenie> now you may tom
Oct 05 00:50:35 * Tom has kicked DB_51 from #laserchat (Tom)
Oct 05 00:50:36 * DB_51 (db51@ecnet-261D532B.stny.res.rr.com) has joined #laserchat
Oct 05 00:50:37 * LaserBot gives voice to DB_51
Oct 05 00:50:48 <DB_51> stain
Oct 05 00:50:50 <Things> maybe a kickban
Oct 05 00:50:51 <Things> lol
Oct 05 00:52:10 * Tom has kicked DB_51 from #laserchat (Tom)
Oct 05 00:53:12 * marianne sets ban on *!db51@*.stny.res.rr.com

Default Re: someone (WL?) really hates laserchat!

first time anything exactly like that has happened. there've been the occasional random idiots, coming in and swearing randomly or asking for cyber***, and proctor came in and acted incredibly obnoxiously once (got himself banned in like 10-20 minutes), but what was weird about this is the guy obviously knew at least a bit about lasers, also seemed to know IRC (the particular type of chatroom laser chat is), tried (badly) to see if he could gain admin privilege (i assume he wanted to try take over the room), then started mouthing off. bizarre, really. oh well, whoever it is, it gets them nowhere - security is great for the chatroom and the only result of stuff like that is idiot gets booted off then laughed at. if it was WL, thanks WL, for the free entertainment!

I'd say it was just some jackass. Wicked Lasers would never do anything like this... it just does not make any sense.

Looks like a typical dumb ass who is probably pretty young and gets a kick out of being a total f*** up.

Seen loads of these on different forums...

Oh btw, I can't seem to enter laser chat, I always get this message
Connecting....
Connection failed.

Any ideas?

Why must people resort to stuff such as this? :
You think people would be more mature, but that seems like more then just some WL fan boy to me.
