Who is behind?

Somebody did set up a website making a fool of me. Searching who is behind this turned out the IP address of the NewsFutures server &#8212-but Emile Servan-Schreiber is as innocent as a lamb because this data was in fact fudged by the attacker (so as to wrongly put the blame on NewsFutures). It might well be the same thing for the IP that connected to comment here.


Did the attacker try to pin it on, not just one, but *two* prediction market software vendors?

I have just done something really stupid. I accidentally deleted almost all my friends at GMAIL (except the prediction market people). I want to slap my face. If you don&#8217-t see me anymore within Google Reader, please re-connect with me. (By defintion, I lost your e-mail address, so I cannot reconnect with you on my own.) I&#8217-m an idiot, I know.

Folks, I have received 3 messages thru that Midas Oracle Contact Form, lately. They were all empty, so I thought they were spams killed by the Contact Form. But, in fact, the Contact Form was not working properly. (I got rid of it.)

If you have something important to tell me (since I&#8217-m such an important person myself :-D ), please re-send it my way using e-mail.
