Why did you decide to create antioffline.com and why the name antioffline?
AntiOffline was conceived as a joke originally. Prior to Packet Storm being sold and the whole John Vranisabitch, Harvard, Ken Williams hoopla, I was a sort of the unofficial spammer at the original Packet Storm's forum. I was in Long Island University taking some comp science classes, and I was religiously there reading just about everything posted, and hanging on the web board asking anything about everything.
Well JP decided to have his so called "change in mission", where he stated he would turn on the underground scene that had made his site popular. I personally never liked AntiOnline nor many other sites that were out at the time, Warforge, AntiOnline, etc. So I decided to poke fun at him. Now AntiOffline itself was at this time located at antiantionline.virtualave, and I had never intended to do more than poke fun. In comes JHH who went out and registered AntiOffline tracked me down like a pimp looking for his $2.00 crackwhore, and he asked if I wanted to run it.
Other than the fact that JP is a 15 year old with very little info-sec experience, his site is full of useless info, and he got thousands of dollars in funding for his worthless site.... why do you not like him (or antionline.com)?
I wouldn't believe everything you read about him. Thousands in funding? I doubt it, what I believe is that his parents may have taken out a loan in order to help his sorry ass out since he dropped out of college and didn't have enough of a brain to do anything for himself. Lets take a thorough look at him for a second and just how much he is worth.
1) Dropped out of college, without having a clue to anything related to security, other then posting some AOL related, over hyped security info.
2) DOES NOT, have any relevant real world work experience other than his kiddie based site.
3) Has posted the most irrelevant articles and information pertaining to the underground scene only to overthrow Carolyn Mienel as top dog media whore.
4) Posted some information about a phantom company who funded him (never ever backed his claim up whatsoever).
Its not JP that I don't like personally, I mean he could croak, get hit by a car and I wouldn't give a hoot. Its his methodology that I don't like since it gave the underground scene such a black eye. There are plenty of people without clues who zero in on his Alice in Wonderland information and believe what he says to be so, its just amazing people are that dumb.
I've learned through the years though not to have hatred or anger towards people. so I believe a lot of people distort the whole AntiOffline vs. JP stance. I don't know him so why would I hate him, sure I joke about it, but at by the time I turn my PC off and stop fscking around, I focus on the things relevant to myself.
