.Together We Thrive
This hacker, Asharana attempted to email a broadcast message to all site members with the subject line "Sorry To Warn You So Late" and then sent an empty message to the site.
This rather manipulative troll-like individual is one of an organized group who has recently sprung up to attempt mass removal of all content, profiles, and site members. After getting it into his head that who ever it was that was out to get him, was so bad, that this entire site had to have been in danger. This is not the first incident we have seen regarding this group and if you are ever contacted by them, ignore the message and report it to administration immediately! This group is known for hacking, blackmailing and threatening with emphasis on abusive and harmfula ttacks by no standards. A name was mentioned, Elshara, to which it was believed by this group this person must be destroyed at all costs and that I of all people, was an alias of said person. Only yesterday, an incident in chat from other members of this same group of people obviously recruited by force, a then administrator of this site by blackmailing and stealing personal information in order to carry out this action. Said administrator has been since removed from the site however it remains to be seen whether or not the fall out from this happening will having a lasting impact on ISN or not.
I am truly sorry for having believed the apparently innocent actions of a person willing to help the site out. I'm lucky I was online to stop the attack, and have since taken precautions to prevent attacks of this nature in future.
Having said this, incidents of trolls are taken extremely seriously on ISN. Putting this into perspective, we are as serious about this as someone would be about a bomb threat in real life. You get one warning and if you are found trolling other members, you will be immediately suspended with a permanent hard ban on your profile. As a result, we no longer will be accepting further administrative help as the ones we already have are tied up with the fall out of this event. for right now, we are accepting new applicants to join the site but will be increasing our efforts to ensure that absolutely no member is left behind in an attack claiming the posts, and friends of innocents on this network ever again.
A full scale investigation into the attack on our network is underway and I promise you, we will seak revenge. Forgiveness is a given but the actions that have been caused by this person who I believe either was on drugs or was asked to carry out this mission by some form of organized group or coup designed to purposely promote fear, hate, anger and mistrust is the result of trolls not getting their way. IT is for this reason that I do believe Yshatar had to close down ISN originally, however you will not see the same response from me, as I am not a quitter or a person to be meek, tied down or suffer for any reason and I'll have you know, we will survive!
Asharana before discovered and disposed of, succeeded in removing 3235 profiles in total from the site, taking their profile data, content and friends along with them. Had myself and other administrators not be on to immediately take action, ISN would no longer exist. to protect the identity of the administrator who was taken advantage of by Asharana as a hacker terrorist, we are not going to publish their name but staff members will see it in the staff group.
This is a reminder to you at ISN that we are here to stay and that no matter what comes our way, we will not be dictated to us by society or any other bully group the story of our lives, for it is ours to live with passion and love. Blessed be and may the stars guide you back home to us as we recover from this incident.
All members who have been effected will receive an invitation to rejoin the community. All members who have not yet been contacted by me, will receive a personal friend request. As the two features of friendship and invitations are closely related, you will see the message Welcome Back To ISN listed in the request as it will be from my account.
This message will be shared with all existing members of the network. Case, closed.
I did receive two emails saying "Sorry To Warn You So Late" I went with my intuition and just deleted them without clicking the links and so glad I didn't. I always trust messages from my guides as they have saved me from death 3 times already. So sorry to hear others who clicked the link have lost their accounts. Why are people so angry and malicious? Love & Light xx
I received that empty mail recently. I thought of asking about this here, but then it came to my mind that if an administrator or the owner is going to do anything, he/she will post a notification about it. I don't understand the reason for targeting this site. It is such a nice place for starseeds as well as humans (like me.. :P).
So Amber I’m not administrator Member anymore?
I received it too. Thankfully, it went to my spam mails.... However, this thread is in my Unread mail, don't know how yahoo sort emails... Feel sorry to those who have lost their accounts, if it happened to my account for five years already, I will really be sad... Thank you Amber for your hard work, we love you... :)
ah okay, thank you! i saw the email but decided to come to the site instead of using that link.
oh... it's a lot of accounts. :( sorry to those who lost their accounts, but please come back!
I saw the email, clicked on it.. and read this message.. Then, I changed my password.
Thank you Amber for informing on this and although you aren't accepting anymore applications for administration staff, I will be glad to help in any way that I can in the future. I respect your "no-nonsense" approach and that you are not allowing certain people to run all over you. That is the strength of a leader. Thanks for keeping this site alive.
Was the psychopomp group part of the target?
Ah! i see, no worries. I joined the group at a time when ISN was taken down, i didn't get the chance to share experience. I was thinking about posting something today but the group is gone. Maybe it's a sign from the universe... ;)
this is why i dont ewer use my real name on internet
wise choice, same here.
May I once more suggest that the owner of this site collects the following from all administrators in order to make sure administrators can be personally and legally held accountable for any harm done to the site and its members.
1) Legal name
2) Date of birth
3) Adress of residence
4) email and telephone number
