Brilliant observation. From what I see at my point of the net,
has posted a flow of 1038 cancel
on Wed, 26 Oct 2005, from 15:24:35 to 16:28:05 MST
one of which with the headers copied below [1]

And his message
Message-ID: <wypcire.11600$hifnapy.78147@fe12.lga>
titled "SCI.CRYPT is turning into CRAP"
was sent on Wed, 26 Oct 2005 15:43:47 MST
right when the cancels where flowing.

There is thus apparent evidence that the very machine
used to send said message was in the middle of spitting
a batch of cancels.

Mouse could have been using an "owned" "zombie"; in which
case I hope he or she is smart enough to find out how this
happened, and who the perp is.
