A STUNNING new and BIZZARE twist in our on-going battle with I’SOT has been revealed this weekend (Aug 20, 2004).
A VIRUS attachment has been sent to us thru our message-board group under the name “firstname.lastname@example.org”. WE HAVE NO members using that name. However, the "List-Owner" (creator) of the message group has a strikingly simular email address. The FOLLOWING are the email headers from this slick, but feeble attempt to silence us;

The “ATTACHMENT” to this email was a VIRUS.
Using “SpamCop” to trace the originating IP of this email, lead to the discovery that the email came from:
HDO.net = High Desert Online; is the ONLY local ISP in Modoc County, CA. (Alturas, Canby) AND the current ISP used by members of ISOT in Canby, CA.
Having basic understanding how viruses work, knowing HOW the name “babyGoldenMic@aol.com” was used in a attempt to fool us into accepting the email message, how the email was addressed; To: “ISOT” <ISOT_NOT@yahoogroups.com>, having first hand experience of I’SOT’s duplicitous double-dealing ways I can come to only ONE conclusion, that either someone at ISOT, or someone closely associated to ISOT (an ISOT apologist) purposely sent the email in an attempt to infect our computers with either a malicious script, key logger or “Backdoor Trojan”. Thankfully, Yahoo does NOT forward attachments to members and in this case, did NOT forward the email itself. We have stopped any further attempts by disallowing “non-members” from posting.
Given the two latest developments, do you really consider I’SOT to be a “Christian” Organization?
(And remember, in 1990, I’SOT Elders discussed murdering Ed Abdallah! As evidenced in the State of California’s 1990 investigation)
In addition, I have received three more simular emails containing a virus from someone using the HDO network, two to my "isotsurvivors.info" email address, and one to my earthlink email address, which is known by only one member of I'SOT; my cousin Dale Merrick, who stated: "If what you are saying is true, then the appropriate person will be held accountable. Like I said, the proof of your accusations will be shown for what they are over time, fact or fiction. So far, all the threats of litigation coming from the isot-nots have come up empty of substance as no legal actions have been taken. As an elder in this community, I have not witnessed or heard or would agree to something that you are alleging. If it is fact Mike, it will show itself for what it is. I am not worried about what the nots may or may not do. I’m too busy living my life, as the rest of us are. I realize that while in the realm of possibility that someone in the Community could have sent something like this (people get sick of the crap coming from the nots), it is amusing that you people still think that it is a conspiracy from the “elders”. The nots must believe the elders in this Communty live their lives centered around what they (the nots) are saying and doing. I’m afraid we don’t. So you folks do what you have to do and we’ll do what we have to do, and in the end, we’ll all be accountable to the Lord. I’m not going to engage in any more communication about this matter because my experience has been that little good comes from it and I’m too busy of a person to engage in activities that produce no positive results. Send this email to whom you will."

A note to the Person(s) responsible:
What you did by sending the VIRUS intentionally, is a FEDERAL CRIME. Several of US, in different states will be turning this information over to our local and State Police Departments for investigation of possible criminal charges. And if WE succeed in doing so, we will also file civil charges as well. DO NOT think that formatting (erasing) your hard-drive will work. WE WILL catch you, and WE WILL "bring it to your door-step".
