Advertlets Riddle: Complimentary Dish Served…

…and I hope you guys like “chicken“.

(This is a sponsored dish thanks to reaymond)

So, my previous post on Advertlets Riddle: A Curtain Raiser did out of a sudden “bring back” reaymond. He sent me an e-mail explaining that I have mistaken him as Josh, or Josh as him — whichever. What is his reason for not replying earlier? Apparently he was busy and actually planned to reply me on “the next day”. However, seeing that I have misunderstood him as Josh, or Josh as him, he felt he needed to reply me immediately even though he was still in his office.

His reason for his “knowledge” of Nuffnang and Advertlets was because he was doing some research on advertising options for his clients. I haven’t replied his e-mail. Take this post as an indirect “open letter reply”. I hope you don’t mind, reaymond.

I wonder why out of a sudden, “people” are inviting me to meet up and have a drink. It’s quite odd that on the same day, 2 individuals asked me out to meet them (Nabil Feisal and reaymond in the e-mail). After reading the e-mail, the question, “Did I make a mistake thinking that reaymond and Josh is somehow ‘related’?” did pop up in my mind. But a while later, I saw this:

Someone came in from Advertlets' WordPress

Point #1: That “someone” who came in from Advertlets’ wordpress admin at 10.57pm has the same IP address as reaymond when I caught him stalking my blog at 8.28pm (this is why I did not reveal the “whole” IP address — to reduce chances of people spoofing IP).

Point #2: The e-mail that reaymond sent to me was received at 10.47pm.

Question #1: What are the chances two people get the same IP address in 2 and a half hours? Quite high.

Question #2: What are the chances “those two people” with the same IP address, coming into my blog? Apart from the IP address, there are “other things” that proves the two people are in fact, the same person. More on that, in my “main dish”.

I could probably understand how reaymond feels. Being the guy who is misunderstood as another, and could have caused some “harm” to “the other guy”. It sure does feel bad. I guess that’s why he’s trying his best to clear things up, so that “the other guy” doesn’t get harmed. Well, he left a comment in my post, and an e-mail to explain why and how he is not “the other guy”.

I guess he is “working overtime” to make sure that “the other guy” is fully clear of any misunderstanding. Just look at how dedicated he is:

Reaymond stalking my blog at 1.40am

Okok. 1.40am really isn’t very late. I’m sure most of you guys are still wide awake at that time. He was probably busy “working” and just dropped by to check things out. But…but…

An anonymous person with same IP address as reaymond at 3.49am

To be still awake at 3.49am to check things out…errrr… That is why I said, a lot of “time” and “effort” has been contributed by my “sponsor” to ensure that you guys have the best meal.

**********

I’m not sure if the next thing I’m showing has anything to do with the above. Apparently, Josh Lim replied to some comments in Advertlets’ blog that same night.

Josh Lim replying comment at 10.57pm on 8th May

And then another…

Josh Lim replying comment at 3.33am on 9th May

Even Noor Azman Bin Othman (the person Josh Lim was replying to) said this, “Don’t work too hard, Mr. Josh Lim or did you wake up at 3:33 AM just to answer my inquiry?“.

Apparently on that night, at least 3 people in Malaysia slept late (+/- 4am):
1. Kelwin (aka TenthOfMarch)
2. Reaymond
3. Josh Lim

**********

I’m getting feedbacks that my blog is turning into some Hong Kong gossip magazine or some sort. Hahaha. Seriously, it feels like it as well. This is supposed to be a “geeky” blog after all. However, I guess it’s also true that I’m exposing a truth USING technology. So, it’s still “geeky”, no? :-) Therefore, I’m deciding to finish “all this” on my next post.

And some mathematics geek, please help me confirm if the formula given out by Boss Lepton is correct. I need it. *URGENT* ;-) I would like to thank jee, Freethinker, Boss Lepton and aw for their help so far.

Next up: “Main Dish”

    Oh boy. And these ppl work in IT? Even if you believe their arguments about IP spoofing, possibilities of having identical IP addresses, belonging to the same subnet etc. etc., that screenshot above showing their blog’s “wp-admin” page is very hard to disprove.

    Only Advertlets’ admin staff would have access to the backend of their blog. And then for one of them to click through to your blog from theirs … hahahah! Priceless.

    Here’s a tip for them: go learn how website statistics and counting work.

    You must state properly, if not I scared people will misunderstand.

    “Whoever doing bad things should avoid my blog…”

    If not people all scared come to my blog. hahahaha. Glad you enjoyed it so far.

    I’m not very good at this IT business but didn’t they ALREADY caught with their pants down on your blog already?

    Don’t tell me they are still dumb enough to be coming to your blog with the same method?

    man….

    Yes, this is the second time I caught them. The first time, they rubbed it off on the claims of “IP and referral spoofing” (a bit technical) done by “someone” who wants to cause harm to them. It can be done but it requires a lot of patience and it might not work.

    Check out my next post. I wonder what other excuses they have this time.
