It's not our Michael Twombly,

ours is Michael Phillip, not Michael S, I'm pretty sure - but it is funny that there'd be two Michael Twomblys who were into computer spamming...
Spam Guilty Plea
According to Assistant U.S. Attorney Anne Perry, who prosecuted the case, court documents allege that Eveloff solicited another individual, Michael S. Twombly, to lease computer access throughout the United States. Twombly then provided the password and login information to Eveloff, allowing Eveloff to send the spam from his computer in Iowa....

  1. How many Michael Twomblys can there be in the world? And two in our state involved in similar identity manipulation?

    That family's got some genetic challenges or somebody's mixing names around.

  2. Rose, if someone else tried such guilt-by-association tactics you'd be all over them. That was just weak, and is not worthy of your usual investigative skill. Stick to digging up actual info on people.

  3. Guilt by association? It just struck me as odd. That there'd be two Michael Twomblys with that kind of computer sophistication. It's odd.

  4. Oh god 7:58 (or may I say Sterling-Nichols) get a life and get a sense of humor.

    I think that's funny Rose. LOL

  5. Doesn't take a brain surgeon to check on names:

    Michael Twombly

    Unless of course you are trying to fool people into thinking the wrong thing.

  6. oh god that is funny!

    So, there are 2 corrupt Twomblys...what are the odds of that.

    LOL

  8. So why post it?

    Just trying to make some remote accusation I presume.

  10. I think that Michael Twombly must be Heraldo then.

  13. Jeez, Rose, the orks are out again. Looks like you hit a nerve being funny. I smell rats here. Is this Twombly and/or Sterling-Nichols again. Don’t you guys have something better to do? Me thinkest that you two have absolutely NO sense of humor. Probably are still cranky that AnonRmous outed Glass as blogging on Heraldo’s computer. You can’t do anything with that can you guys? Also, after Glass said he couldn’t release the apology because of the disclaimer at the bottom, but the TS got it thru a CPRA request.

    My god, Rose, they sound desperate don’t they. Keep it up girl, you have rattled their cages good. Seems like they are losing it big time.

    LOL

  15. Slander and libel aren't funny.

  16. What's an Ork anyway?

  17. ok - I will try to keep this simple:

    Orks are green-skinned and red-blooded, a side effect of their symbiotic relationship with fungi (explained in more detail below). Orks are genetically engineered for combat, and quite efficiently so. They are strong, and their squat bodies can stand immense punishment. Unlike humans, though, Orks are quite capable of being beheaded, having the head sewn onto a different body, and surviving the experience to fight again.

    They eat fungi of all kinds as well as meat. A particularly favoured ingredient in their diet are Squigs, short for 'Squiggly beasts' — a variety of symbiotic races about the size of a cat but legless. These include the 'Eatin Squig', a limbless blob which feeds on fungus, the 'Growler squig', a legged variety used as a sheepdog for Gretchin (in third and fourth editions referred to as a 'Squighound' and available as an item of wargear), the 'Attack Squig' a powerfully voracious little beast available as an item of wargear, and the 'Face-eater Squig', a ferociously toothed variety used both as a weapon and for entries in face-eating contests. (The Ork and the Squig both open their mouths and bite, in a parody of a kiss. If the Ork eats the Squig, he wins. If he keels over backwards, he loses.) There is also a larger sub-species of squig, called a 'squiggoth' that ranges in size from about that of an elephant to a 60-plus-foot monstrosity capable of stomping buildings into rubble. Squiggoths are used as pack animals and in combat as the carriers of mobile fortresses.
    Orks grow all through their lives; the effect is particularly notable in successful Orks. As the Ork survives combats and wins trophies, the respect of other Orks will produce in him an effect somewhat similar to adolescence in the human male: He puts on muscle, becomes more aggressive and assertive, and generally throws his weight around. If he wins the ensuing challenges to single combat, he may become a Nob, a leader of Orks, noticeably larger and tougher than the average. Once he begins to grow, an Ork will generally keep getting bigger and stronger until he is beaten by a bigger or more cunning Ork. Warbosses and Warlords, the rulers of continents and empires, are very large Orks indeed.

    Ork behavior is dominated by the Waaagh!, a gestalt psychic field they generate that has affects on the Ork psyche, as it allows Orks to instictively recognise who is 'bigga' and therefore who is in charge. All orks generate this field, and it grows stronger as the orks enjoy themselves, generally while fighting. The Waaagh! helps give momentum (and the name) to the Orks' planet-crushing Waaaghs. These Waaaghs are a cross between holy crusade and pub crawl, with a bit of genocide thrown in for good measure. Thousands of Orks will gather together, drawn to the power of a single dominant Ork called a warlord, who is bigger and more intelligent than the orks around him (which is not saying much as orks are quite stupid). Then the Orks will set off to find an enemy to fight — any enemy. Ork Waaaghs will sweep whole planetary systems away and destroy armies and fleets in tides of bloodlust and carnage, and only once the Orks have killed every available enemy will they start to fight amongst themselves again.

    Orks consists of two symbiotic organisms: one comparable to a terrestrial animal and the other to an alga or fungus living in the first's bloodstream. The animal cells carry the genetic information of only the individual's subspecies, but the alga has genetic information for all the varieties of orkoid, as well as the different oddboyz. The alga also helps heal wounds quickly.
    There are two theories relating to why Orks have this unique biology. The first is that they were adapted by their masters the Snotlings, a race that soared to intelligence upon eating a particular species of mushroom, spread across the galaxy with the help of their less intelligent Ork slaves, and were then deemed stupid again when the Orks consumed all traces of the mushroom which only grew on their home planet. The more modern one is that they are the Krork, created as a survivor race by the Ancients/Old Ones (referred to in Ork legend as the Brain Boyz) in their wars against the Necrontyr. The fact that an entire ecosystem can be constructed of Orkoids, and their total war-readiness, suggests that this is the more likely of the two. In early forms of this theory, the Brain Boyz were an orkoid subspecies, along with orks and gretchin.

    Orks have not only survived, they have prospered and are more numerous than humanity. This at least is due in part to how they reproduce. Orks reproduce through the release of spores, which grow into a plant-like womb underground that nourishes the bodies of the various Orkoid species. This is the entire basis of the Orkoid ecosystem, producing first Squigs, then Snotlings who cultivate the Squigs and fungus, then Gretchin to build the settlements, and finally the Orks themselves. This means the orks, where ever they go, will have an abundance of food, slaves and other resources, a moving ecosystem that supports them as they go on their Waaaghs!
    This also makes it extremely difficult to rid a planet of Orks, even if the initial invasion is defeated. Orks release spores throught their lives, but release them particularly at the moment of death. Without a nearby population of Orks, the fungus will eventually start the Ork life cycle anew. Decades after weathering an Ork Waaagh! settlements on a planet can find themselves faced with an unexpected attack from feral Ork tribes coming out of the wilderness.


    Screamers like Salzman, the Connors (yes both of them), Miller, PVG, Stoen, Sterling-Nichols...all orks.

  18. Um, excuse me, but the only thing Anon.r.mous outed was his own stupidity. After Anon.r and Rose got all excited about their "discovery" the blogs were filled with people posting as other people, links and all, mocking Anon. Much fun and laughter was enjoyed at Anon's expense, as his theory was shown to be laughably stupid and a waste of everyone's time. That anyone would continue to advance it as significant shows a blind ignorance to facts.

  20. Why the name calling. Makes you a big woman in town? Shooting for Arkley status?
