A number of people have been spammed by [email protected]; this
person, “Winston Smith” (real name Harold Covington), has apparently
recently discovered the internet and is using it to send out his words
of wisdom to anyone who will listen and many who won’t.
On Saturday, July 27th, he sent out “NSNet Bulletin #8,” which ended:
NOTICE TO RECIPIENTS: It looks like we may be playing server tag
with Nizkor fairly soon. Hilary Ostrov has filed a formal demand
with Earthlink that our account be canceled. Apparently my “Goliath”
challenge has enraged the Jews no end and whipped them up into a
frenzy of hysterical hatred.
We already have alternative servers set up, so if Earthlink pulls
the plug on us we should be back on line with minimal delay.
Yours for Victory,
A “frenzy of hysterical hatred”! Well, here’s the “enraged” “demand”
she had sent to his sysadmin:

From: Hilary Ostrov
Subject: Unsolicited e-mail from one of your users
Cc: [email protected]
I have received the following unsolicited e-mail from one of your
users. I trust you will take the appropriate measures to educate
this user and to ensure that henceforth he conducts himself with a
better regard for courtesy and netiquette and that he refrains
from further abuse of the internet by such wastes of bandwidth.
Thank you for your prompt attention to this matter.

The discerning reader will note that nowhere in that email did Ms.
Ostrov request that “Winston Smith”‘s account be cancelled. “Winston
Smith” knew this, because Ms. Ostrov was kind enough to Cc him.
Another lying, spamming Nazi. (yawn) How many does that make?
Note that this particular spammer has gotten most of his addresses off a
mailing list whose membership was accidentally revealed to him. I refer
of course to the Zgram list — Ingrid Rimland screwed up (again) and
posted all the supposedly private names. He’s been sending unsolicited
email to members of that list. However, he’s also been sending
unsolicited email to anyone else he deems might be interested in it —
including, apparently, just pulling names off groups like
To his credit, he offers to take people’s names off his list if they
don’t want his spew, and presumably he follows through on that. But I
don’t think he deserves any more brownie points than the commercial
spammers who claim they’ll take people off their list who follow some
simple instructions. Unsolicited email is unsolicited email.
On Sunday, July 28th, “Winston Smith” sent out a special missive entitled
“Movement Ethics,” defending himself for these practices:
To get to the nub of the matter, yes, I took advantage of a
fortuitous accident to advance the cause of Aryan racial struggle
in a vital new area. I make no apology whatsoever for that, nor is
any required. That’s my job.
“Fortuitous accident” refers to Ms. Rimland’s mistake.
“My job” refers to sending unsolicited email, apparently.
The White race is at WAR, Mr. Winter, and I mean that in the very
literal sense. Our people are being slaughtered like hogs in the
streets every day; the fact that this butchery is passed off as
“crime” rather than the casualties of racial war by the media does
not make these people any the less dead or injured or the women
any the less violated. I am becoming more and more frustrated and
angry with people who refuse to see this and who seem to be
laboring under the delusion that all this is some kind of genteel
debate where there will one day be a winner and a loser and then
we shall all retire under the shade trees for tea.
I must also tell you quite frankly that I do not give a rat’s ass
what people in the National Alliance or anyone else think about
me. […] I have a job to do and I’m going to do it. I long ago
realized and accepted that it was going to be just myself and a
small handful of the most intelligent, most talented, most
dedicated and above all the most pragmatic people against the rest
of the world—not least the bulk of the so-called “Movement”.
If you want to call me unethical, by all means. Unlike most of the
lies leveled at me by people with the most shameful and
discreditable of ulterior motives, that particular charge is true.
I am completely and utterly unethical where the survival of the
White race is concerned.
Netiquette and respect for truth do not appear to burden him either.
