…and it appears to be an NDP staffer.
It’s good that they’re rightfully taking a strong stand against lawful access even though they have no idea that they can or should obscure their IP address when doing shit like this.
Actually, the people in the comments section do a pretty good takedown of this piece. Contrary to what the article espouses, an IP address is not “like a fingerprint” online, and all the Citizen’s investigation proves is that the IP for Vikileaks30 is coming from somewhere on Parliament Hill. I suppose it’s more likely that someone with ties to a party other than the Conservatives would be behind this, but it could be anyone on the hill…
I actually thought about this after and felt embarrassed for not thinking of it earlier. Though, if you’re trying to remain anonymous, even if you’re on a router with multiple users or have a dynamic IP on a network, go through a proxy.
On another note, supposing everything on there is true, why be anonymous?
Could be a civil servant, in which case, yeah, you gotta be anonymous to cover your ass.
