As many of you know, the SuperTopo site has been under a siege by an individual from New Zealand named Matthew Gilchrist.

Thank you for your many reports of abuse by this individual.

At the present time, we have been playing an on-going whack-a-mole game with Mr. Gilchrist. We been unsuccessful in blocking his repeated violations of our posting policy despite a growing body of custom code to detect and block his posts. Our efforts slow him down, until he figures out a work-around.

At this time, we believe his abuse has become a form of criminal harrassment of our site, our business, and our community members.

We are proceeding with filing criminal charges with the FBI in hopes that they may be able to help us stop his on-going assaults.

While he may be out of the FBI jurisdiction in New Zealand, we would hope that this criminal activity will be an issue for him should he attempt to travel to the US.

If any of you have personal information on Matthew Gilchrist including his personal address, phone number, or other information that might be helpful for the FBI's investigation, can you please email it to us at:
forumabuse (at) supertopo.com

Thanks for your help.

I was not aware of this problem, until I opened one of his subtly worded threads at work the other day (hoping it was about climbing)and a close up of an anus appeared across my two monitors!
Thankfully nobody was behind me like my boss!

Have you tried emailing or having any dialogue whatsoever with him from the first time he was banned until now?




Edit-

Never really pictured Matt to be the "work around custom code" computer hacker type. Is it possible that all he needs to do to work around the custom code is make a new account with a new email address?


Cause the custom code doesn't seem to really do anything.

I doubt any of us not versed in the law would be much help but whatever it
takes to keep that creep out of the US would be a job well done. I also
doubt the FBI will be falling over itself to help and since my cousin who
was Assistant Director retired I can't help you there. ;-)

Didn't take long to get that Facebook beta, did it? Interesting that some people know exactly where to find it, and post it up in a snap.


No advice, but best of luck in whacking this mole, once and for all. Stalking bullshit behavior like this needs to be tracked down and whacked hard.

I assume the FBI will get in contact with Interpol and the New Zealand authorities will have to deal with him as well?

Filing charges with the FBI seems overly heavy-handed to me.

JMO, but.. I agree with the actions of the Moderators.

What did he do?

Posted private parts, tranny porn, etc. repeatedly using a different name
each time he was deactivated and deleted. Also talking smack about CMac and others. The dude is sick.

I'll bet a drone-launched Hellfire could locate him.

Get enough signatures on the White House petition, and Obama will have to think about it.
