Don't you get more time for pirating stuff online?

To0nces

I'm just curious, how does one track someone down from an online game? It's pretty dumb to post personal details on the net, no matter what the reason. Unless the guy tracked him through Facebook or something. But then that begs the question of how someone would know your real name from playing Counter Strike? I don't know, maybe they were in a clan, and had some forum or something. Still would be pretty dumb to post your details on a forum though.

It happens all the time.  I know a lot of people only through the web but know a lot of their personal details.  It's pretty creepy what you can dig up on someone (or yourself) using just an email address (or a gamer tag, or even a real name sometimes.)

 

Go ahead.  Do a Google search for "To0nces," or would you rather google "zomglolcats" instead?  btw how is the weather in Nebraska?  Ever fix that problem with NoScript? (I would have done a clean install of Win7 instead of upgrading from Vista.)

LIES ALL LIES!

But seriously, I looked through a few google pages, and there are other "to0nces" that are not my accounts. One was even on some spanish language page. Toonces is from a SNL skit, so it's not exactly original. The only thing remotely original is the zero I used in it, but apparently other people are doing that as well. Same goes for "zomglolcats". But nice try :P

So googling user names doesn't exactly work completely.

That's true, but how many of them use the same lolcat avatar as you? :P  It's just a matter of filtering the results.  I mean if some random person with an algorithm can link supposedly non-descriptive browsing habits on Facebook to determine if someone is an in-the-closet person of the homosexual persuasion, then I think the same sort of thing could be done with Google search results to identify which results are the same persona.

 

But yeah anything someone puts on the net should be considered completely public for anyone to see. @_@

Sounds like this guy is ready to kill.  The French army is only capable of waving white flags for surrender.

so... attempting murder only land you 2 years in jail? what's wrong with the judge? i don't care if this guy have some mental issues, but if he is willing to kill somebody for beating him in a game, i dont' want this guy out on the street.

Considering he is a frenchman, that probably wasn't his first stabbing of the day if you know what I mean. Freaky shit just happens over there all the time.

Two years come on judge he really should get 5+. And we all know french people are crazy to begin with anyways so it was only a matter of time.

This is only tangentially tech-related. Had it been framed in the context of the classic "video games cause violence" battle, I'd get it. As it is, it's a commentary on a judicial decision.

Wow...

 

 

Only 2 years?!?! He should of got 5+

I think if that was over in the US, then that would be a longer jail sentence. It is just a game, and it is like the guy was really holding a gun to your head.

Frenchie is a very lucky guy!

He probably never ran into 50-Calibre A$$Hole!

As of last week, 50 was officially banned from over 2200 servers and 2 accounts for pissing people off in CounterStrike!

His favorite move is shooting the Admin in the face just as he is about to plant the bomb! Why? Because if your dumb enough to leave friendly fire on, 50 will get the 3 points for planting YOUR bomb and only lose 1 point for killing you!

So remember admin, You don't make the Rules in ConterStrike, 50 does!

He should have got atleast ten to sixteen years for this, he must not be black, i say that cause blacks tend to get those kinds of years for a crime like this, and rightfully so if they commited the crime. But other "races" should get the same for the same crimes, but it has been often noted that whites get less time for the same crimes. Two to four years when blacks get ten to twenty five. I'm just sayin' put yourself in the victims shoes, and you don't care what "race" he is, you don't want to see him anymore!

Click the link below, and it explains scientificaly why i put quotes around the word race, cause according to geneticists and biologists findings, geneticaly, there is only one race when it comes to humans.

What's funny is this story is about two Frenchmen.....I didn't see any mention of race or even "race" (in quotes). Stereotype much?

 Hmmm, 2 years and strong words for attempted murder. What if the victim had died? Three years and the judge calls this Barreaux creature a "really BAD person!"

WT-f-Ever.

I always thought that WTF meant "welcome to France." Just drive in Paris to get the full effect. Lovely country, women, and generally the people but lots of WTF moments.
