Forum Trolls are pesky and nothing more than a nuisence, Stalkers however are dangerous and put people at risk. For over 2 years the Forum has been constantly stalked by the owner of www.cabledrum.net.
The owners Name is Leon Becker and he lives in the heart of Berlin. Leon Becker is a Little over 50 years old and owns a “computer aided communication ” Business which runs under the Name of “Renderland” ( http://www.renderland.de )
Leon Becker was voted off the Forum approx 2 years ago for harrassing staff and attempting to publish Information that could have put the Forum at risk. Leon Becker had been thrown off the forum 2 times before for similar reasons.
Cabledrum.net is has now become defunct and attracts little or no attention and we can only guess his stalking activities are a result of his own damaged ego and the fact that his own cable search engine has failed.
Since him being voted off the forum in 2012, Leon Becker has repeatedly bullied, harrassed and abused forum staff members by DOX’N them in public, insulting them and sending threats, some of which we will include in this post.
On the 7th September 2012 the Forum received a threat to hack the data base which we simply ignored. Here is a screenshot of the mail we received from Leon Becker
At least we know who managed to obtain a copy of usernames and e mails of Forum members which were then used to send a fake email in the Name of ” Friend of WikiLeaks ”
The Stalking continued and Leon Becker used his website to DOX private Information on forum staff members.Thier full names, ages, occupation and addresses were revealed and remain online to date. Oh yes, Leon Becker LOVES Publishing private Information on forum members on his own site but HATES the thought of his own Name being mentioned, especially in conjunction with his own company Renderland.de.
After seeing his own Name in Twitter another threat to DOX a staff member was sent per email:
Translated into English, the text reads as follows:
Isn’t this awesome?. Leon Becker loves to Display FULL personal Information of Forum staff members but threatens to “dox ” ppl that mention his own Name. Further tweets from Leon Becker also indirectly revealed the telephone numbers of a staff member who received aonmyous phone calls of threatening nature. As a result of this, telephone numbers had to be changed. Strange enough, Leon Becker removed the tweets ( for whatever reason )
Strangely enough, Leon Becker demanded we remove all WikiLeaks Logos we were using because this was an infringment of copyright, a word Leon loves use in order to harrass and bully the Forum. However, Leon Forgets to mention that his own site cabledrum.net is using a logo he stole from the Proctor & Gamble brand Name ” Duracell ” ( http://www.duracell.de/ )
Here is cabledrums logo:
here is the Duracell Logo owned by Proctor and Gamble
Wow, what a coincidence ! Oh well, at least he managed to pain the bunny drum blue instead of organge.;-)
Strange enough, the Forum received a mail from an unknown source that seemed concerned that Leon Beckers personal website was possibly involving politics with WikiLeaks. We do not know or understand the real reasons behind thiis but after doing our own investigation, it seems this person was referring to a website Leon Becker mentions as a reference on his business page. The mail raises questions as to how a German political Party could be involved with Leon Becker who’s own site is endorsed by WikiLeaks.
Due to it’s nature, we have decided NOT to publish the mail on this page right yet untill he have more Information. The mails title is: “Ist das Intranet des Landtags Sachsen-Anhalt kompromittiert? ” ( Is the intranet of the Landtag of Saxony-Anhalt compromised? )
All this Information is public so we see no reason not to publish it here in the Forum.
So the trolling and stalking continued and it seems Leon Beckers own Twitter account exists ONLY to bully the Forum and staff members. We have Hand picked a few of our favorites to underline the full scope of the harrassment.
About 2 weeks ago the Forum received yet another chilling mail from Leon Becker ( in German ) complainign again about having to see his own name on Twitter. Why he sent it to an admin of the WikiLeaks forum remains a mystery but here it is anyway: ( with Translation …)
Translation of mail: ( note the use of the word “dirty little pig” )
Anyway, it goes on and on and on. Leon Becker is clearly obsessed by the WikiLeaks Forum and totally detached from reality.
The whole affair took an ugly turn in February when the forum organized a rally in Frankfurt to protest against the senseless slaughter of dolphins in Taiji, Japan. The Event was a success and went according to plan. 3.500 signatures were collected and handed over the the Japanese consulate in Frankfurt.
A very disturbing message was found on Leon Beckers Twitter account which underlines how dangerous this Person is. It seems he travelled from Berlin to Frankfurt to stalk and take pictures of forum members from a safe distance. We still do not know if Leon Becker has homosexual tendancies ( lol ) or if he justs gets pleasure from stalking. Either way, here are the tweets, complete with the pictures he made:
It comes as no surprise that Leon Becker has been endorsed by Julian Assange ( not WikiLeaks ).
The forum doesn’t expect the the trolling and stalking to end in the near future. We will simply continue to operate as we have been doing the past 3 years.

The HFPA landed a coup with an exclusive interview with Wikileaks founder Julian Assange, talking with him for more than an hour via skype from the Embassy of Ecuador in London, UK, where he currently resides in exile. Here is the first of 5 excerpts from this interview.
This email continues to circulate as I received it tonight. I am in the US and as some concern has been raised to that end I am replying here. FWIW. I am posting the full header and attaching a screenshot of the email. Personally I remain unclear as to the intentions here so I’ll be reviewing this thread again. I will add additional information if/when I come across any. Hope this helps.
Stay safe. Stay vigilant!
