Cold/C-kid on the other hand has been spamming the forum and sending out PM's about Joe for a long time and he is actually a psychopath, he has a history of actually posting violent angry stuff, and he actually started spamming the site with child porn already 1 time. Plus he has been spamming stuff about Joe to people via PM for months. He actually seems to have some sort of strange psychotic vendetta against Elite trader, where as Bearice really didnt appear to mean anyone any harm.

Bingo. He is behind this without a doubt in my mind. So after some discussion yesterday, we realized that in the beginning, there was a point when Cold was a regular member and was talking about trading like everybody else. He eventually turned into a jackass and had to be banned for such. That was the beginning of him going ballistic and wanting to bring us down. Since then, his antics have come and gone in waves, probably depending on his medication, but the point is that he was participating normally for a while and had no reason to do something like mask his IP address through a proxie server. So we went back and looked just to see if his IP was very consistent at the beginning stage or if it shuffled all around to something different every time he posted. Sure enough, it was the same IP, day in and day out.
So we did a Geo IP lookup and this is what we found:
So as you can see in that link, the IP originates from Canada.
What's great about this is that Cold confirmed himself in this post that he is Canadian.
So needless to say, his big mouth in the very beginning may end up being his downfall.
Obviously, Baron, MaxiPants and others had no clue what was going on. It was too easy to blame it on Cold (even though the pieces of the puzzle did not fit) and you fell for it.
The chance that these jokers got the right guy this time is very small IMHO.
