Re: Why does anton send virus??
He and I have spoken at length about money making and his age.
Apparently in Canada, there are laws regarding hiring minors, and who out there wants to hire a 13 year old? I gave him a few ideas, not sure if they were acted on, but he seemed receptive. His rig is nice, have you seen it? Also, what can you do with it without ANY money? I used to have a dirtbike as a kid, but he lives in a city (or in the suburbs), so what can he do?
I can appreciate all the posts about the virus sending, but I agree with Samurae, it's time to call it quits. Dragging this thing out isn't doing anyone any favors, including this board.
I have never received anything from him by way of a virus, and you can bet I'll be cautious of his E-mails. But, that doesn't mean he should be shunned at all costs. If he does it again, take action legally, it's the proper way, bitching about it gets little accomplished other than all sorts of people riled up.
Would I be ticked if someone took a hammer to my Zuk? You bet, I'd probably come out of the house with my 9mm (Max knows I would anyway, I "Don't leave home without it"). Yes, it is the same, which is why it should be handled in the same manner. If the "sorry" doesn't stop the viruses, then maybe a visit from the police would.
As to his parents, don't go there, you don't know his situation. His parents are divorced, which is hard, so let's leave it alone.
I have no problem with Anton on this BBS. He has some great knowledge, and unless he sends a virus via this medium anyway, I don't think there is much ORC can (or would) do about getting him kicked off, nor should they. Let's drop it and see what happens int he future, if it happens again, then take action, legally, but let's quit complaining about it and move forward.
