It got hacked by some scammer.  There were a whole bunch of accounts hacked around the same time then.  I didn't use a very strong password as I felt a forum wasn't a particularly critical website, but still sucked.

Did you even attempt to convince theymos or other admins to recover your account?  I agree with you and recall that there were quite a few accounts that were hacked during various periods, and it seems that  that mine, Adam's and quite a few others were hacked in late 2016.  Was yours hacked in 2017?  

I think that there were a large number of usernames and passwords that were stolen (a kind of data breach, if I recall? but it may have also been related to the Yahoo data breach or another one that caused access to info that was also used on the forum?)

I got mine back within about two weeks, and various kinds of attempting to prove my account, which were a bit lame, but it seems that I provided a sufficient amount of info to recover my account.

My second screw up was when I got locked out of my account from a screwy way of trying to recover my password.. I think that was November or December 2016, and I was unable to use my account for over a month.. with my continuous petitioning, but finally admin gave me back my account.
Last legit post was August 3, 2017. Hacker started posting August 5th, 2017.
I didn't have a private key of a staked bitcoin address, which they required for me to prove I owned the account.
In any case, that account now also has negative trust and is marked as a 'scammer', not sure how I would go proving that that wasn't performed by me, so not sure how desirable it is to get the account back.  They froze the account though, so it's not active anymore.  My biggest regret looking back was not reporting the hack earlier. Had I not procrastinated, maybe some people would not have been scammed out of their money.


There may be a bit of luck involved, and surely, you are correct that there would be a need to take action quickly.

I cannot recall exactly the sequence of events, but I am pretty sure that I had attempted to log into my account about 8-12 hours after it had been taken over, and I was not successful, which took me a couple hours more to figure out what to do, which was to create a temporary account to report my hacked account.

I am pretty sure that by the time I reported my account Cyrus had already locked the account - yet I cannot recall what role my reporting played in getting my account reactivated, but it seems that higher ranked accounts have a certain value (my account already had Legendary rank at that time), and the hacker made a large number of communications to transact BTC value, and there were a few communications that showed that BTC transactions were about to take place - but my account was frozen  before the BTC value was actually transacted.

Perhaps there would have been more suspicion about me, if BTC had actually been transacted under my account.

That loss of my account did cause me to understand a bit more that there remains a decently high degree of value to a BTC forum talk account that has quite a bit of time and good will - even if some forum member peeps might hate me a little bit on their insides... hahahahaha

By the way, one of the first things that I did, after receiving access back to my account was to send a PM to each of the members who the hacker had communicated with through my account in order to attempt to explain the situation and to explain my regrets and to make sure that they did not harbor continued grudges towards me in regards to my telling them that there was not going to be a transaction - and the fact of the matter was that the kinds of transactions that were being conducted was the selling of forum accounts, so it was not exactly exemplary peeps on the other end of the in-progress hacker transaction that was cancelled by me, either.

Sure, but afaik (v little) btc.com has more of a free hand, while antpool is the belly of the beast.

Maybe it has something to do with the activation of overt asicboost in the newest antminer firmware ? Fucked up pool software ?
No, segwit killed covert ascicboost https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=3194122.msg33108003#msg33108003

They recently released a firmware for the s9 which enables overt asicboost.
Sure, a crappy one (use braiins' one), but that can't have anything to do with segwit, and Jihan's not processing segwit tx's?
Wasn't braiins big reason for being to get away from Antbleed? How quickly everyone forgot that Jihan had a fucking backdoor into the majority of the worlds hashing power.

Well there we have it folks.  JJG succeeded where countless have failed.

All it takes to recover a hacked account is to wear Theymos down with 675 emails totaling 2.3 million words and he will recover your account just to be rid of you.


Yeah... I had account getting back system in which I sent a PM to theymos and all other admins every 5 minutes and I said something like:

"it's me, it's me, it's me!!!!!  Can I have access to my account back, now.. please, pretty please...?"

I had figured out a great system because each time I sent my pm, I doubled the size of it (a copy and paste trick), and my system was especially a great because it worked.  Go figure?

I feel a bit ashamed to confess to such prior secrets, here.   Cry Cry Cry  Tongue Tongue Tongue

Bullshit.

It is well known you sent one single *HUGE* wall of text PM arguing over the (im)probabilities that a guy not being the real owner of the account would have put so much effort to write instead of just asking for him account back.

Once the server storage was upgraded and the service restored you got your account immediately unlocked. Since then Theymos decided he wouldn't be dealing with that shit ever again.

Something that it is less known is that Theymos decided to make you a merit source from the very beginning simply out of fear that you would sent him another PM arguing about your suitability for the "job" and the probabilities for the merit system to fail miserably were not that the case.

FACTS.

Indeed. I overemphasised the increased hashpower part of the braiins os https://bitcoinmagazine.com/articles/braiins-os-open-source-alternative-bitcoin-mining-firmware/

edit: foolish me. all this could mean they're using covert asicboost. dumdum. apologies.

redacted

thanks for making this account an insta ignore r0ach

I genuinely appreciate you saving me the time of figuring it out on my own, demonstrates some respect for the regulars...credit where it is due.

"Alexander A" is not me.  This issue has been going on for a few years.  People will copy my posts word for word on this site about things like bitcoin and post them as their own with some random username on sites like Zerohedge.  They don't do it much here, they do it far more on sites like that.  Some of the posts were bullish, some were bearish, many aren't about bitcoin at all, so there's really no reasoning as to what the hell they're trying to accomplish.

Coz here's where you belong and you know it.

What I wonder is why r0ach is still here.... poor guy is probably dying of boredom with his PM's investment. Or he is scared that the next wealthy elite will finally eradicate leftover nazis when Bitcoin hit the the moon. Maybe that's the reason he he puts so much effort trying to make some friends here. It's not working though... but the poor bastard doesn't know any better.

You can thank me later for telling you metals revaluation will be highly biased towards silver instead of gold for numerous reasons.  One being the US does not have anywhere near 8000 tons, more like a theoretical maximum of 2000 tons at best, but probably closer to zero like Canada (depending on what pillaged 3rd world gold is still around).  Then you have demographic problems such as nations like India and a few others having WAY WAY too much global power if gold is favored in revaluation, and absolutely nobody in charge of things today whether it's the US or China wants to create a system where the entire planet are indentured servants to India.

I don't know exactly what the hell is going to happen to shitcoins.  All I know is metals are going to be the bedrock of the future system, and it's required to highly favor silver percentage-wise in gains to prevent handing off all world power to some random street vendors of Calcutta.

That must be why you're back. Sailing season over?
Yep. I mean the boat has engine heat much like a car, it actually gets quite comfy even now. But it's just not fun to sail when it's cold all the time, and overnight stays are right out except with shore power for heating, in which case why bother. Also it keeps breaking, don't get an old boat.

Buy an expensive trimaran so you can tell me if it feels like being in hell riding a sailboat at 30 continuous knots.  They're kind of impractical space-wise compared to cats, but the idea that no matter how many building size waves hit it that it probably can't sink and something will remain afloat you just have to cling to is always good.

What happens if the bottom bit needs fixing? How much does a fix in a dry dock cost? Is it cheaper to just buy a "new" old boat than pay for the dry dock?
