Glitchwerks: I've been doing this for years on various trolls I encounter. Even if they use a common user name, other details will usually give them away. For example, quotes in signatures, their interests, and so on.

Sometimes they give away identifying details in past posts as well; searching their posting histories on websites will give that away.

nytmare: Google his username is the easy part. The hard part is creating a GUI interface using Visual Basic.


Crudbucket got to it first.

But why are the feds using such crude methods anyway? Aren't they able to hack all IPs simultaneously for information?
