Did this have anything to do with the cyber attacks that have been reported on in the last couple of days?
The Department of Energy and other government agencies were hit by a global cyber-attack. Some of the hits were linked to China and possibly Russiawww.usatoday.com
I know very little about this topic, I'm just askin'.
I vote for this idea. We *need* a PM hacker special ops team.
We need the back story on this one...I moderate on another unrelated forum, we have experienced episodes of spammer attacks and a very pernicious one by a disgruntled member. In both cases the prep for the attack frequently involved sleeper accounts created over the course of weeks (perhaps more), then at 0 hour they started up and all h3ll broke loose until the mods got on top of it. It is interesting and helpful that the attacks were so un-creative, for which I am also grateful. Sometimes theres a new approach but seems to quickly turn into a one-trick pony.
Our disgruntled user campaigned against us for over a year, long enough for us to prepare & refine automated tools and do some analytics. They were periodic enough to suggest a monthly prep/execute interval, with a couple cases where they apparently went on vacation. At the end I think they might have gotten tired after having gone to the trouble of creating dozens of users over the course of the month and then being locked out after barely getting started.
The earliest known United States shooting to happen on school property was the Pontiac's Rebellion school massacre on July 26, 1764, where four Lenape American Indian entered the schoolhouse near present-day Greencastle, Pennsylvania, shot and killed schoolmaster Enoch Brown, and killed nine or ten children (reports vary). Only two children survived.Personally - I would like that story to dissapear ASAP before it puts any ideas in anyone's mind!
Skewlhouse shootings weren't a thing 'till someone got the ball rolling.
It was still a post office thing up to that time.

You are the main reason this place has gone downhill.
You have no idea what is going on, you come in guns blazing.
Getting a warning isn't that big of a deal, most of the guys who get them get all up in arms about it.
