I would like to warn everybody that a person is masquerading as me and is posting inflammatory comments at several blogs. In many ways, he is damaging my reputation with clear intent.

It is highly likely that the impostor goes by the nick Abdullah Gul. One proof to back my allegation is his IP address. At Politics 101, a person masquerading as me was caught by John. The admin of Politics 101 later contacted me to confirm whether the impostor was me. Upon my confirmation, the admin deleted the impostor’s inflammatory comment and revealed the impostor’s IP address, which is 218.111.39.55. The following is a screenshot of the comment:

The IP is associated with each and every one of Abdullah Gul’s latest comment.

Sometimes, it seems that Abdullah Gul (masquerading as some other person; usually in a hybrid pseudonym like Juferi Ooi Abdullah or Muhammad bin Merah) is masking his IP to post inflammatory comments. I am unable to confirm that but WordPress records all commenters’ IP address as well as the time any comment was made. The IP differs from 218.111.39.55. Nevertheless, I have several other recorders on my blog and those recorders state that 218.111.39.55 did visit my blog and that the time of the visits coincided with posting of the inflammatory comments.

I am currently contacting TMNet to find out more of that IP address 218.111.39.55.

The person Abdullah Gul has been posting many ridiculous comments at my blog. You could read some of his comments at various of my entries ([1050], [1048], [1036], [988], [979], [976], [973], [948], [952], [850], [695], [435] and [456]).

According to John, the same person had tried to impersonate Menj. At this blog itself, he had used Jeff Ooi and Mack Zulkifli with the obvious intent of misleading others.

The latest case of impersonation, which I suspect done by the same person, occurred at Ktemoc. There, the impostor used my nick to hit out at Rajan. At Ktemoc:

The person with the nick “__earth” is not me.

I am gathering information on the person and if I have enough evidence, I plan to make a police report. I am not sure how serious the police would take it but at least, it would get the ball rolling. After all, if left unchecked, the impostor’s comments would, sooner or later, get me into undeserved trouble.

Finally, I suspect that the person behind Abdullah Gul is also Garywbush. Several bloggers like Rajan, Bobk and even Menj are probably more than familiar with Garywbush. Garywbush has an account Wikipedia and I as well as admin Robdurbar suspected Garywbush of socketpuppetry. Both of us built a case against Garywbush but it has been left hanging after Garywbush ran away.

Recently I edited Garywbush’s user page; I was placing a bait to lure him in and it worked. After leaving Wikipedia for almost a year, he came back to undo my edit on his talk page. His latest edit at Wikipedia might be the smoking gun that I need to connect Abdullah Gul with Garywbush. I have contacted several Wikipedian admins to cross match Garywbush’s IP with 218.111.39.55, if indeed that IP address is static, or that his terminal is dynamic but always connected to internet.

Another reason why I suspect Abdullah Gul is indeed Garywbush is the fact that both had invited me to establish a Liberal Islamic Party. By the way, that is a ridiculous suggestion.

Currently, I am holding back all comments that I suspect made by Abdullah Gul as proofs.

So, be warned. Please be careful of you find the nick “__earth” posting any comment anywhere. It is possible that that is not me.

The nick “__earth” here is an impostor. The other two are possibly done by the same sad person. One trend that I learned is that the impostor loves to make an stupid comment and then uses another nick to question that stupid comment.

Ah. The talk of “Liberal Islam Party” again…

Also, at Ktemoc:

This is how to look for the real “__earth”. An avatar of me and a link linking to my blogger profile at Blogger comment window. A fake “__earth” will not have the avatar at the comment window. At least, so far.

And yes, that Jeff and John’s comments are really the impostor’s.

Remember, Garyism is a crime. My lawyer friend says it is.

Further, I have contacted TMNet and they say they could trace the IP, even if it was dynamically-assigned. So, all I need to do now is a police report. Once a report is lodged, it will not take long to trace the impostor.

    I’m sorry that these things happened to you… But I have no idea why someone would waste their time doing such things.

    Good luck!

    His spamming of my site is getting annoying. Don’t you have his address? If the cops know about him already, why haven’t they done anything?

    Maybe because it IS Dept E8 of the Police Dept? 😉

    Dude, I know it’s been ages, but whatever came out of the police report?

    Damn, what a headache, going through all that spam he deposits all over the blogosphere. Looks like whoever this person is, he’s going above and beyond to really destroy your reputation. I wonder how come this individual (whoever this sad man is) holds so much hate against you.

    P.S: sorry for the EXTREMELY late reply to this post. (Almost a year late… damn!) I just discovered this blog and am slowly reading through your posts. Already bookmarked and all that.

  8. […] the other esteemed readers, a primer on impersonation may clarify this post […]

    My poor bro Hafiz! What happened here? Why is someone doing this to someone as nice, intelligent and likeable as you? Orang dengki ke? This is bad. How long did this last before the imposter got bored and moved on to other people?
    Love,
    E.L.

    Hi, am blog hopping and wondering if the police report has been made? Appreciate reply.

    Ha ha. Your imposter accused somebody of being a zionist and jewish convert. This is your jewish friend Ilia.

    The Impostor is SO FUNNY! OMG…hahahahahahah!

    I think the Impostor is brilliant in his/her own way. He/She doesn’t believe anything he/she says but is just taunting your clique for responses by playing Devil’s Advocate – at least that’s what I sensed. I hope it’s not affecting you anymore and you’ve found the humor in all this.

    I admire the fact that he/she is taking the time to do all that research to play Devil’s Advocate – I’d never be able to find time to be that interested/ing.

    p/s was reading your post on CSL when I stumbled on this. 😀
