Centerpoint Energy, the privately-owned electric utility company that covers much of southeast Texas (think Houston) has been busted by BanSmartMeters.com posting negative comments anonymously on our website.

Note the fake email address (email@example.com) and the I.P. address (220.127.116.11). The I.P. address is a unique identifier that can be traced back to a certain user connected to the internet.
Here is a screen capture from a “whois” website that allows anyone to look up an I.P. address and find out who it belongs to.
This Walt Guimbellot is probably not the person making the posts. He’s probably just an IT (computer) guy at the company whose email address was listed when the company registered for the I.P. addresses above.
There are different websites where you can look up an IP address, but the one used here is http://www.all-nettools.com/toolbox/smart-whois.php. Website owners and administrators are encouraged to look up I.P. addresses from commenters or emailers (emails contain I.P. addresses, too–just look for the “headers”) that have positive comments about smart meters on anti-smart-meter websites.
Most issues have people who support and oppose them, both for legitimate reasons. But smart meters have absolutely no benefits for consumers and only provide enormous profits to the manufacturers, distributors, contractors and utility companies. You can be sure anyone supporting them, especially expressing that support on an anti-smart-meter website, is from one of those industries who stand to profit.
Thanks, Centerpoint, for acknowledging us as a threat. Otherwise you wouldn’t be paying someone to troll our websites and post negative and inaccurate comments, even ones as lame, lazy, and without substance as the one you have posted here!
Please note: all blogs automatically capture the I.P. addresses of commenters. This website does not use them for anything, will never let anyone have them, and will never expose them–UNLESS you are suspected to be spreading lies and defamation in an effort to support your ongoing goals to make healthy people sick and sick people even sicker, burn down their homes, capture every moment of a person’s activities in their homes, and raise their prices to astronomical levels, by installing “smart” meters on every building in America. Then we will look up your IP address and expose it to the world if we find conclusive evidence that you are, in fact, engaging in the above conduct.
