Just because you're paranoid doesn't mean they're not out to get you

So...you did something that someone else found inappropriate, someone submitted a complaint that made its way to the dean's office, you took over-aggressive action to prove your innocence, no formal action was taken but you pissed everyone off in the process including the office and the person who complained, and you're worried that the person who complained in the first place will try to ruin your life by telling law schools?

Is my (admittedly pretty vague) framework fairly accurate?

Why? B/c LS admissions people can identify you?

Yes, it's quite simple. All they have to do is a simple backtrace and bam, you're in a world of trouble with the cyber police.

As an aside to this, adcoms at my school had no problem putting two and two together to figure out who I am IRL

No. Deans office and random classmate are two separate worries. Random classmate never submitted a complaint. Why the dean's office may not like me has nothing to do with a complaint.

But why?

And dingbat and sinfiery: how do LS offices put two and two together? What's 2 and 2? Do they bother w/ backtracing IP addresses, or just what they see from someone's posts?

Depends on the school and the posts.

In my case, I'm a special snowflake and the school monitors this board more than most.

For most posters they won't care, but when you start spouting out conspiracyscy theories, they might start digging
