I think there is more to this story. I can't recall exchanging pm's with him and we never had any verbal sparring on here that I can recall yet I got the pm from the hacker that baron deleted. I don't know emrglobal but there are trojans out there that allow the hacker to do anything they want. He could have been hacked, had a keylogger installed, then they have his username and password. They could have been using his computer as a redirect site to host this crap. Perhaps elitetrader itself was hacked and this hacker stole usernames and passwords that way. If a machine is compromised an ip does not mean anything as I could be in europe making your computer in chicago do anything I want with the right knowledge.
He sent me a series of emails and at first he said it was "unknown forces" that had hacked into his computer, possibly a virus or something like that. Please see below:

... 3. I stayed away from ET for a while, afraid that I would come across
child porn pictures. When, on Sunday, I noticed that Baron had
finished his maintenance I wanted to verify if the redirect function
had been disabled. I uploaded a handful of FAKE photo-shopped pictures
of adult women whose heads I had replaced with the heads of 2 young
girls, taken from a normal, non-pornographic image. Then I posted the
redirect link in a reply to an old spam thread. I repeat: This was NOT
real child porn, unlike that which I had a received a few weeks
before. It was just obviously faked images of adult women.
That's interesting because I didn't see any of these non-porn photos of adult women that he's talking about. And judging by how you guys were describing the disgusting content that you were seeing, you didn't either.
And finally, I would like to point out that all of the disgusting child porn photos that the web site that you guys were being redirected to have been magically taken down last night by someone.
I will leave it up to you guys to make your own conclusions about what's going on here.
