th3j35t3r is just a script kiddie

He has been d0sing my personal file server because I have jihadist materials on there for research. He knows why they are there but is just a petulant child seeking glory for his actions. He is not doing the intelligence community any good really, but at the same time, he is doing nothing against the jihadi's. Since he has decided to take me on I have been capturing his d0s traffic and passing it to the feds. He is breaking the computer abuse and fraud act by his actions.

Driving bad guys back into the shadows is not such a bad thing

That second point by danstermeister is an oft-heard critique of CT efforts online: that this will drive them further underground and we won't be able to monitor. If you take the position that online jihadi propaganda, proselytization, and interaction is increasingly important in jihadi recruitment, then why is it bad to drive them back into the shadows online? Key principle of COIN - separating the insurgent from the population.


Many Thanks
