Skip to comments.Need Help Tracking an Email (Kind of Vanity-Possible Hate Email from CNN's Aaron Brown)
Posted on 10/29/2004 6:36:08 PM PDT by Lance Romance
Hey, I received a strange email today and I am having trouble tracking it to it's source. It is virulent in it's hatred of GWB. I sent out 2 emails yesterday that could have caused the response. One to my friend, who is a Kerry bootlicker and one to Aaron Brown at CNN, who is also a Kerry bootlicker.
The return email seems to have been put together rather hastily. My IP tracker says it's from Houston, but this information also came up. Need some help.
Here is the text of the email:
>Why would you want to vote for a drunk driving, cocaine using IDIOT? Here is George Bush's plan for America.
-You will no longer pay taxes based on your income, instead you will be taxed on what you purchase.
-The IRS will be eliminated and replaced with a national retail tax.
-Eliminate ALL corperate taxes (instead the middle class will replace these taxes)
-Instead of taxing income, George Bush will tax you at least 30% for every purchase you make.
So what does this mean? When you buy groceries at $100 there will be a +$30 tax added. Now that people are taxed at least 30% on every purchase they are more likely to buy products outside the usa.
Effectively killing 80% of small businesses which employ 53% of the nation.
-George Bush has lost over 3 million jobs since he was "elected"
-George Bush has blocked prescriptions from canada which would allow people to save money. (He claimed the drugs were not safe but the same drugs were made in the usa and approved by the FDA)
-George Bush is allowing flu vaccines from canada but not prescriptions. Proving he is for the big drug companies and not americans.
-George Bush is against stem cell research. Not because of his christian faith but because stem cell research could produce low priced cures for diabetes, alzheimer's, and other diseases that would make big drug companies loose BIG revenues.
-George Bush has cut funding to protect nuclear power plants from terrorists attacks. Many nuclear plants are located within 200 miles of major cities and suburbs.
-No president in the history of the united
ALL OF THE STATMENTS ABOVE CAN BE VERIFIED BY YOU. DON'T BELIVE WHAT THE MEDIA TELLS YOU, DO YOUR OWN RESEARCH USING GOOGLE AND FIND OUT THE TRUTH ABOUT GEORGE BUSH.
Here is what Microsoft Outlook Options gave me.

I underlined the intersting part considering CNN is based in Atlanta. Any help would be appreciated
On the case
Somehow I can't believe a CNN anchor would say "don't believe what the media tells you". He is the media.
I have a couple very anti-Bush emails that arrived in my outlook this afternoon, from someplace called 'misleader.com'. I have never heard of them or their site until now and I would like to know how they got my email address.
Blocking is somewhat satisfying but it would be more fun to make their lives miserable in some small way, whoever they are.
Has anyone else been getting strange garbage like that?
An email will gather together information from each of the computers it passes through on the way to the recipient and this is stored in the email header. In Outlook, right click on the email message and select Options.Headers are best read from the bottom up, as they are added to as the email passes through the system:
A lot of leftists think the media is conservative. If he is one of these he would say it.
Is he completely biased? For Da*n sure he is!! - Will he ever admit it - hell no.
His bias drives me nuts at times - his complete unwillingness to see it drives me even further crazy.
If the email came out of Houston I doubt it was from Aaron (unless it was from his blueberry handheld).
Do a 'whois' on the domain, and if any discrepencies show, complain to their domain registrar.
Earthlink is NOT Aaron Browns email -
That's funny. I got the exact same e-mail spam. I think it is mailed out to random e-mail addresses, so it's probably a waste of time trying to figure out where it came from. Just add it to the penis enlargement and viagra spam mail in the trash.
thanks - i'll try that.

Send me the complete email to email@example.com. Chances are, this boob sent it from work - in which case you can call his employer and complain about it.
Maybe you two should forward the e-mail to Brown - I have no idea who he is, but I doubt he appreciates having his identity stolen.
I am no Freeper nerd, but just looking at the spelling and punctuation errors in that e-mail would make it absolutely comical if it was indeed, sent from a CNN hack.
Hey Draino, Why not post the headeers from ONE of YOUR Aaron Brown emails?
No connection btw the aaron.mail.atl specifiers and Aaron Brown.
The entire string before the @earthlink is part of a routing scheme by earthlink. Essentially splitting network traffic/requests into segments (aaron, betty, condi or whatever), protocol (mail denotes smtp or pop; other variations in the string are likely web for http; and ftp for ftp, etc.) finally atl could be geographically based on city (Atlanta) or other region (Atlantic?).
That said, I may be missing something but it looks like the @earthlink address is you, and the other address is the sender.
