Beach Cities IMC will be moving webhosts immediately. PLEASE READ

by Laura Moore Friday, Aug. 29, 2003 at 12:19 PM

Beach Cities IMC was deceived into taking a web host which is either shared by or run by the same group which has been abusing our newswire. We seek information.

Beach Cities IMC Collective has determined that some of the posts appearing recently on the LA Indymedia Newswire regarding our website are indeed correct. We will be moving immediately.

After investigating our webhosting company, it was confirmed that they are also hosting the hacker group known as KOBE. It may even be possible that this group is either working with or owns the hosting company itself. After communicating with the programmer of the software, it was determined that there were modifications made without our approval, and which were not part of the original software package.

While forming the Beach Cities IMC Collective, several notices went out at local pubs and beaches. It was shortly after getting an offer from Pyramideon Web Hosting in Palos Verdes to host the IMC for only .00 per month that we actually were able to open the website. The address given for the offices of Pyramideon Web Hosting does not exist, and the only communication is via e-mail. We would like to thank those of you who noticed the strange happenings, as we were caught unaware.

The Beach Cities IMC Collective is seeking information regarding the group known as KOBE or of the web hosting company called Pyramideon Web Hosting. If you have had any interaction with either of these groups, please contact us at

So now we OWN the web hosting company? BWAHAHAHA! We are hosted by Computers NLA (according to everybody else), and if we did own the webhost, we would have fucked up your shitty site anyway. If I were you, Laura, I would watch my back....your little "collective" might include a KOBE!

You haven't fooled even one person. Everyone knows that you own beachcities. Right now you've got the publishing feature disabled because your baby was getting ripped up today. Quit being such a lamer. Just because you know a little bit about IT boy that sure does make you all big and scarwie! Oooooooooooooooo!

"Beach Cities IMC was deceived into taking a web host which is either shared by or run by the same group which has been abusing our newswire."

Let's consider this now:

A legitimate new IMC starts up in a city the size of LA, and just so happens to enlist the exact same web hosting services shared by the exact same group that has been harassing the existing LA IMC (not to mention all of the other IMCs).

And we're supposed to believe that to be merely "coincidence"?

Well, it could happen!

KOBE has a long history of attempting to pull off deceptions. This latest "twist" may be just another example of such a deception.

One of KOBE's primary goals is to provoke the left to waste its time and resources dealing with KOBE rather than fighting the government. What better way to accomplish this than to send a few dozen leftists scurrying about trying to figure out what is going on.

There is a solution to this problem. It's rather simple. LA IndyMedia's own volunteers should appoint someone to investigate this and then report about it in the main column of LA IndyMedia.

For a start, one could contact the Church that lists itself as ""

I am appending the registry information for this domain at the end of this message. One could locate and meet with Laura Moore directly.

If Laura Moore is paying KOBE to host the website, then Laura Moore has contact information on KOBE. For example, she knows to whom to send the check. She should have a telephone number.

Another important question is why she has been using a yahoo account as the main contact for a website.

If anyone has communicated with Laura Moore using that yahoo account, I suggest they post the reply message's header on IndyMedia. We can look at the header and try to determine whether or not it is from KOBE. LA IndyMedia should check the IP address of the individual posting the header to confirm whether it was posted by a friendly poster or by an enemy poster (headers can be faked).

KOBE is a pathological liar. Do not assume that ANYTHING posted by anyone that is either a member of KOBE or that has been associated with a KOBE operation (such as the new IMC site) is telling you the truth. Investigate it in the real world with face to face meetings.

I have been at this far too long. But it looks like kobe i taking a beating here at imc . This post is to say that kobe has chosen the name of that church to confuse you. sbm maybe a member of the church but it is a diversion. kobe creates confusion and calls it politics.

At the moment kobe is fighting to take the heat off compnla. This is a tactic they might use. kobe has done everything to take the heat off compnla because sbm really does work there. If he had any brains he would just shut up. Have a big steaming bowl of shut up. This guy has bragged about his server and how much it cost and how he invented the internet and that he was the guy who Chuck Barris would meet to set up jobs. This guy is bull goose looney. He has gotten his hands on a "super cookie" and used the fake site as bait. They do this and have opened fake forums.

I'd guess there is some copyright somewhere that was just abused. They are bored harrassing Stephen DeVoy. And hope to trap someone from here so beware. But what they have done to this man is beneath human dignity. Show them no mercy. All you really need to know is that everything this group/guy sez is false.

Hello??? It was DeVoy who posted that info on the Church, not KOBE

by KOBE SBM Friday, Aug. 29, 2003 at 2:26 PM

Perhaps he was too high on Oxycontin to realize that he snagged the info for instead of I dont fucking know.

Why is there no George Bullock working at Computers NLA? Why is the KOBE website on an entirely different trunk line than Compnla? Isnt it impossible to have PacBell and GTE lines going into the same location???

How can I post from KOBE even when Computers NLA is open during the day, and after it is closed at night? BWAHAHAHAHAHA! Sure.....Im definitely at Computers NLA. COME AND GET ME!

The whois info for is interesting. The address listed (101 Palos Verdes Drive) turns up in a google search on this very site

Now that's a real coincidence, some innocent "collective" wants to start an IMC and they have the same address as some KOBE front. Are we done playing yet?
