HOPE Conference Audio

[boycott]


HOPE = Horny Old Pedophiles Everywhere = HOPE


"So it was a bunch of smelly communists that took a break from playing with linux and looking at kiddy porn to gather together and (shock) relay their displeasure with the current politcal administration.  Yeah that sounds like fun.  Looks like that one Aaron guy didnt follow his own advice to 'shut the hell up, you don't know anything'.  Sounds like a really nice guy though."

--- Anonymous Coward comment on Slashdot regarding H2K2.


"'You should try one of my body tune-ups,' says [John] Draper.  'It's a great energy boost.'  Indeed, he spends a good deal of time at the conference enticing young attendees back to his hotel room, where he offers full-contact 'stretching' sessions."

"... he won't give his handle - spent over $3,000 on a loft in Chelsea, insurance and other expenses, with plans to stage a $25-a-head orgy.  Instead, he says, 'the FBI investigated us; we were going to let some 17-year-olds come, so we were crossing a state line with the intent of having sex with a minor.'"

--- Very interesting quotes in Hello, My Name Isn't ... while at H2K.


"... twenty-some years later he showed up in the San Francisco rave scene, a wild-looking man with gray hair and majorly fucked-up teeth as a result of his prison experience.  He would stay up for days dancing and partying -- 'high on the energy', he said -- and trying to seduce young rave boys."

--- Old quote about regular HOPE attendee "Captain Crunch" on 666.com.


"Suddenly pedophilia's relevant.  I'll give this some context.  All day friday and possibly all day saturday, (I can only vouch for friday) there seemed to be a team of legit journalists interviewing each panelist right after they got off the stage.  Except they were using a huge VHS camera.  And they weren't claiming to be a college class.  yadda yadda.  So anyhow it seems that each interview started out seeming quite legit but all of a sudden one of the lines of questioning became, 'do you have any evidence that Capn Crunch is a child molestor?  How about Emmanuel, I hear he hangs out with young boys.'  Then all of a sudden there are people all over here, all over the 2600.com irc chat, all over the slashdot threads spreading innuendo about Cap'n Crunch and Emmanuel."

--- Some comments about $2600 Magazine, HOPE, "Captain Crunch," Steve Rombom, etc. which are posted at http://jewishdefense.org/rombom/.


"Actually, he has been seen doing the same things in public.  People notice it at meetings, and warn other teenagers.  A certain person named Hitman from NYC 2600 mention to someone to watch out for Emmanuel.  The kid went back to Emmanuel and had Hitman banned from HOPE 6.  I have always wonder where to of the teenagers that alway hung out with Emmanuel went.  RedHackt and Mr.Ohm disappeared from the scene after being close friends with Emmanuel."

"Maybe he was taken into custody because he was molested by Emmanuel Goldstein who is a suspected Pedophile."

"What is wrong with you people?  It's perfectly normal for a young boy to sleep in the same bed with a grown man."

"Probably just a ploy so that the Hope conference won't look so lame (as always) when compared to next week's Defcon conference"

--- Some very interesting comments on the "Steve Rambam" arrest at HOPE Number Six which were posted in the Washington Post blog.


"Before joining Gist, David Ruderman designed software for web sites including Time, Money, Fortune, Entertainment Weekly.  At Time Warner's Pathfinder site, he developed web applications for community building, text retrieval, and content management.  He has developed electronic books for Times Mirror, and at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, Dave even worked on one of the first human-genome databases.  In 1984, Dave co-founded the hacker zine 2600.  He earned his Master Degree in Computer Science from the State University of New York at Stony Brook and holds a Bachelor Degree in Biology."

"Gist Communications is backed by Neptuno G.m.b.H., a subsidiary of Sal. Oppenheim Jr. & Compagnie, a private bank based in Cologne, Germany.  Neptuno's initial investment was several million dollars."

--- September 16, 1996 quote in the New York Times about GIST Communications.  David Ruderman, one of the co-founders of $2600 Magazine, is GIST Communications' Vice President of Technology - and fucking rich!


"Today he earns in the low six figures by advising executives on how to protect their companies from the current generation of ingenious but reckless geeks."

--- Quote about HOPE keynote speaker Kevin Mitnick from Jonathan Littman in his Playboy article The Invisible Digital Man.  Nothing like using manufactured fear, history revisionism, and blatant lies to help you pull in six-figures a year.


"If [Steve] Rombom were tried and convicted as an adult, he would be subject technically, but not realistically, to a maximum term of imprisonment well over a hundred years."

--- Quote from the United States District Court, S. D. New York, 1976 discussing Steve Rombom's Jewish supremacist domestic terrorist activities in the 1970s.  Steve Rombom is often a keynote speaker at HOPE.  (Original)


"[Jello] Biafra has spent large amounts of time and money on attorney fees and court costs.  He continues to spend money on his appeal.  Although he lives in a 1.1-million-dollar house in the hills of San Francisco, he is asking others for donations to pay for his appeal.  The appeal will nevertheless reaffirm the court Judgment against him.  These resources could be used to maintain his record label, Alternative Tentacles.  But by continuing with his expensive, failing and misguided legal maneuvers, Alternative Tentacles may very well go under."

--- Quote about commissar Eric Reed Boucher (Jello Biafra) from his fellow bandmates.  You just paid $100 to watch a bunch of gay millionaires tell you how to think!
