I came in a little late on this one given the bullshit drama that I’m dealing with (as evidenced in this blog lol) however, I’ve been watching this battle between the witless (@ShadowDXS) and the witty (@Th3J35t3r) for a couple of days.
I also started to review their streams to see how it all began and how it progressed.
Is it just me? Or has the quality of those who call themselves Trolls just completely degraded? These guys who call themselves trolls don’t seem to have a clue what a Troll is and what they actually do.
The term, trolling, is now just becoming synonymous with being an abusive bully and idiot online.
Disappointing to say the least.
Now, all th3j35t3r did to ‘provoke’ all of this drama was to write what sounds like a very cool app which allows people to monitor his buys and sells in the BitCoin market. This helps his followers decide whether they’re going to do the same. Those who follow him have apparently done well as they’ve indicated in their tweets.
I haven’t downloaded it simply because I don’t have any BitCoins, however, the feedback from his followers has been quite good. They’re loving it. So, it’s a Recommend.
This simple act, however, has brought all sorts of idiots out of the woodwork to trash the effort.
And the most vocal of the idiots is a guy whose Twitter alias is @ShadowDXS. ShadowDXS is a 31 year old from Tucson, Arizona whose real life name is Branndon Pike. (corrected).
Branndon is yet another one who considers himself a l33t h8x0r. He may or may not be. I don’t know. I do know that most who feel the need to make this claim generally aren’t and those who are don’t usually need to say they are.
Yes I know … I can now expect the threats and attempts to hack my accounts and my computer, etc. etc. etc. Lol Did I tell you I have a computer called ‘honeypot’? ;-D Anyway, none of that is new to me so I don’t worry about it.
Now I won’t publish anymore on him right now because th3j35t3r hasn’t yet. He’s a patient guy who always gives the Tards a chance to back off before he nails them with a dox. So, I don’t want to pre-empt that effort despite the fact that I do have more information that I could add here.
If you look at ShadowDXS’s stream going way back, what you’ll see is that the vast majority of his tweets are harassing someone. Previous to th3j35t3r was vinceinthebay and before that tackycow (a Barrett Brown supporter). So this is apparently what ShadowDXS likes to do all day on Twitter.
With all of them, he was the one that initiated the attacks and with th3j35t3r he’s now claiming that th3j35t3r started it ROFL. Nice try there ShadowDXS. We aren’t blind.
So, let’s follow the progress and note the pattern of behavior. It’s exactly the same with all cyberharassers/bullies/stalkers.
1. ShadowDXS strikes first with what can only be described as a blatantly obvious provocation:
2. Jester’s response is his usual laid back style of laughing it off:
So, given that response, you’d think ShadowDXS would just go away. Jester is obviously not biting.
A reasonable person wouldn’t have done that in the first place but even a lot of unreasonable people will just move on at this point because they’re being dismissed.
Not ShadowDXS. He seems to have this obsessive desire to inflict damage on people, especially those who have a large following and generate a lot of interest on Twitter. Maybe he thinks the fame will rub off if he can make them look bad? I don’t know what his motivations are but really all he’s accomplishing is making himself look bad and annoying a lot of Jesters followers including me.
Since that first tweet on January 24, he’s been tweeting obsessively in an effort to provoke the Jester whose responses continued to be dismissive despite the predictable smear campaign which ShadowDXS then resorted to.
This doesn’t work, so his next step is to get people to pirate it, presumably in the hopes that Jester will lose money. This is actually pretty hilarious because various studies are showing that pirated material doesn’t actually result in a loss of money to the creator and can often increase the sales because it effectively promotes the product.
So far, we’ve got:
2. Unsubstantiated and false accusations that Jester didn’t write the software
3. False accusation that Jester is engaged in theft based on the unsubstantiated and false allegation that Jester didn’t write the software.
4. Threats to pirate the product (which will most likely benefit Jester but that’s clearly not ShadowDXS’ intent Lol)
5. Then he starts promoting a radio show he’s going to be on by telling people if they don’t like what he did they can ‘come at him’ on the show. Hmmm. Seems like the picture is getting clearer. Do we have another famewhore here? Looks like it.
6. As ShadowDXS promotes the radio show he’s going to be on, his girlfriend, @Tawny (Tawnie Knight) starts accusing Jester of wanting publicity despite the fact the reporter approached him not the other way around. Oh. The. Irony.
Now just to fill in some blanks here, a reporter from Daily Dot contacted Jester and asked for interview to talk about his new App. He agreed. This reporter then went to various unreliable sources like Twitter tards and pastebins and included inaccurate and unsubstantiated bullshit into the article. Jester talked to Daily Dot and got the irresponsible reporting corrected. As you can see this reporter was also another one trying to exploit Jester’s popularity to make a name for herself.
ShadowDXS appeared in the midst of this fiasco and may have had a role in some of the bullshit that the reporter reported but that’s not really clear to me just going by the Twitter stream. It seems like that might be the case but I’m not certain.
In any case, the Daily Dot reporter apparently knows marsden (another irony), Jester’s stalker and also a reporter who tried to pull the same thing on him.
So, Jester just carries on doing his thing while ShadowDXS continues to rage on. Lol.
After ShadowDXS has done his radio show (which hopefully everyone ignored) he took a break and moved on to harassing others. The few I checked were all people who had large followings.
Yesterday, for reasons known only to himself, ShadowDXS starts on Jester again this time with open threats to tamper with the live feed of the App.
So, I have to ask, is there another radio show coming up? Just wondering ….
Anyway, Jester finally gives ShadowDXS the standard warning and reveals enough information to let him know that he knows who he is.
And ShadowDXS responds by directing tweets to his cohorts to bring them in, and blaming all the drama on the Jester to his girlfriend. Lol.
I can’t tell you how this story is going to end. I’ll have to do an update to cover that since it’s still ongoing.
You can follow @th3j35t3r’s Twitter feed to find out as well.
When I realized what was going on the other day, my first thought was, what the fuck is their problem?
Seriously. Between this guy and the Daily Dot journalist who apparently thinks it’s a good thing to take known Twitter tards seriously, and others who are basically just sniping from a distance, it’s been a bizarre ride.
All he did was write an App (BitCoin Bud for Androids) that those who are using it really like and are benefiting from and offer it for sale on Google Play Store.
Apparently a major crime to some. Lol.
Now, like I said I haven’t seen or used the App because I’m not in the BitCoin Market. However, I have read Jester’s tech advice and comments about different programs and I don’t doubt that he’s quite skilled at whatever he takes on in the IT arena. So, when I hear idiots make absurd claims about his skills it just makes me laugh.
I expect that this story will end the same way that all of the stories end which involve tards taking on the Jester. With him pwning them by doxing them thoroughly. Most slink away and hide after that but there are some diehards that carry on no matter what.
I suspect that @ShadowDXS is one of those.
