The East Anglia hacker is a hero!
November 20, the day everything changed ^ | 2/18/10 | Me

Posted on 02/18/2010 7:43:41 AM PST by CharlieOK1

I know we may never know who it was who so bravely hacked into the Hadley Climate Research Center, and although I am curious who did it, I hope for his own good that he is never found out. How many trillions of dollars and billions of lives did this hero save by thwarting the Climate change fascists? We may never know.

The Post Office should issue a stamp in his (or her) honor.

Was it really a hacker?

I thought the emails were obtained through the UK’s version of the Freedom of Info Act??

I could be wrong, of course...

Probably an inside job, not a hacker.

There has never been a determination rather it was hacked or leaked as far as I know. In fact, one can predict how an article will go from just about the first sentence when one reads “hacked” or “leaked” memos.

Let’s hope he worked for one of the world’s larger intelligence services whose country had had enough of the BS about restricting development and paying tribute money into a UN fund

and shall remain a nameless hero

OK, sorry. Should have said leaker or hacker. How about, the person who put out the memos. Whoever it was, we owe a huge thank you to.

Absolutely not. In fact, the leaked emails exposed their intentional destruction of information that was being demanded under the (British) Freedom of Information Act.

But it was not likely "a hacker" but an inside job.

Agreed. The email dump appears to be the work of an insider with access to the mail servers.

No, the e-mails were either leaked or hacked. In fact, the e-mails contained details on how the FOI was being thwarted.

There is pretty good reason to believe that no hacking was involved.

Either an insider made the information available (unlikely), or
the files were placed on an unsecured part of a server.

Steve McIntyre deserves most of the credit. His search for the truth, statistical review and requests for information seems to be the subject of many of the emails and may have been a reason why all the emails were so neatly bundled in the first place.

If my comment came across as snarky I apologize, I didn't mean it sharply...I was just pointing out that in most articles you can tell the viewpoint of the author by their choice on that.

It was most likely the Russians.

It didn’t end up on a Russian server by accident.

From what I hear it is a Russian who is stationed in the far east. I would like to shake their hand.

This was definitely an inside job. If this were a random hacker, why did know where to go and what to look for. Someone on the inside knew what was going on. I would suspect that it was made to look like a hack job. On the other hand it may have been someone on the inside that did not have access and really did hack the computers from the outside but knew what he or she was looking for.

Yes, he or she is a hero.

Yes! If not for the East Anglia Hacker, the idiots like algore could hide behind the mantra of “science” even though normal folks knew it was a bunch of BS. Now they are forced to come up with a different load of BS to defend their idiotic position.

Well it could have been a hacker, obviously he was interested in the GW scam.. so decided to try and penetrate the security in this particular research center. The first place to look is the mail servers and once there he would probably dump everything he could find and then run searches on it and package relevant stuff together.

Best argument for inside job is that nobody made a claim to be the hacker who pulled it off. Fame from that would just be too tempting. Insider on the other hand would probably be someone who lives off those research grants so he need to do everything to keep his identity secret.

Take algore`s nobel prize away from him and give it to the leaker.

This leaker is now an historical figure.

I’m betting that it is an insider, that they know who it is and that they dare not touch him because he’s got a lot more he could release.

I think that there should be a monument built to ‘The Unknown Leaker/Hacker’..... I would donate to that.
