    I think he inserted the code on purpose to wreak havoc with Windows users.
    After all, Roy Schestowitz is a rabid Linux advocate and a paid SPAMMER for
    the Linux movement.

    He was also warned that something was wrong with his sites but of course he
    ignored it.

    "I posted a message on www.schestowitz.com that was somewhat anti-
    linux.
    Not only was the message deleted but shortly afterwards I started
    getting pings of death from that site. If that wasn't bad enough, I
    had a rogue program, testicles.com trying to connect to
    www.schestowitz.com.

    As if that were not bad enough, I got the same exact results on
    another site, www.boycottnovel.com which coincidently is run by the
    same person, Roy Schestowitz.

    Maybe I am wrong, but I would suggest people avoid those two sites."

    I would stay clear of www.schestowitz.com and www.boycottnovel.com just to
    be on the safe side.

    Crikey. Doesn't Roy advocate prosecution for other people with this type
    of virus spawning site?

    Yes he does.

    Roy Schestowitz is just another example of a Linux advocate gone loony.
