Discussion about the 5th gen war
@sigdeff There is no "faux tribalism". There is a forced tribalism from one side. Guess side that is? The one stomping out freedoms, putting a wall around D.C. while halting construction of the one at the border. Why is it people here bitch about me calling out liberals then go on to say they are tyrants. The liberals are the tyrants, stop trying to make liberal a not-bad word. It's a slur/insult to be called one nowadays for a reason. You all getting pissy about me using the term "liberal" are fucking disappointing to say the least.
@carnold03 first of all, it's bad that they're going after gab this hard. This isn't a coincidence, they're being targeted for competing with Twitter.
Secondly, sql injection is kinda a rookie mistake. There are audit tools to check your codebase for this sort of thing.
Thirdly, were the passwords salted? Were IP logs leaked?
Luckily I don't go online without vpn and I use unique passwords.
> The Gab accounts of Donald Trump and Gab’s own CEO are among those “compromised” by a hack of the microblogging service popular among US conservatives and right-wingers. The data is being offered to researchers and journalists.
> A 70-gigabyte trove of data dubbed “Gableaks” includes public posts on the platform, but also “private posts, user profiles, hashed passwords for users, DMs, and plaintext passwords for groups,”according to an entity called DDoSecrets. The information was allegedly stolen by a third party and leaked to the group, which operates similarly to WikiLeaks. The leak was described in detail by Wired, which was given access to a sample of the dataset.
> Gab is a competitor of Twitter that caters to users who feel their freedom of speech is being unduly restricted by Big Tech. Critics call it a hotbed of far-right extremism that is flourishing thanks to the company policies encouraging user anonymity and a lack of content moderation.
> Like it's better-known counterpart Parler, Gab saw an influx of new users after Silicon Valley launched a crackdown on undesirable voices in the wake of the January 6 riot at the Capitol. When Parler was effectively deplatformed shortly afterwards, some of its users went to Gab.
> The Gableaks trove “contains pretty much everything on Gab, including user data and private posts, everything someone needs to run a nearly complete analysis on Gab users and content," DDoSecrets cofounder Emma Best told the tech news website. “It's another gold mine of research for people looking at militias, neo-Nazis, the far right, QAnon and everything surrounding January 6.”
> According to Wired, the data in DDoSecrets’ possession was obtained through a technique called “SQL injection,” which tricks a website into executing malicious code sent as user input. In a Friday statement, Gab said it was “aware of a vulnerability in this area and patched it last week.” DDoSecrets says the hacking was done by “JaXpArO (they/them) & My Little Anonymous Revival Project.”
The solution is simple, but ‘uncivilised’.
In ancient Egypt the cult of Thoth became unruly in their worship. They were sacrificing over ten thousand Ibis a year in their sacred rituals, amounting to over four million in total. Everyone wanted a ceremony with an Ibis, it was the ancient worlds version of having an iPhone. Eventually they were distributing empty urns instead of the mummified remains of the Ibis, and the cult began to lose its credibility. The solution was to punish the cult and its servants in a brutal display of power.
What we can extrapolate from this story is that a solution to corruption of any form is to cut it out like a cancer and realign society on a proper, just course.
But we can’t do that anymore, because it is ‘uncivilised’ to treat anyone with indignity or harshness. We give too much of a voice to those who are corrupting our society from the inside out, and hold no one accountable for the myriad missteps. And so the cancer grows, the malfunction compounds and the problems grow out of proportion.
The firm hand is the solution that everyone is too afraid to employ to solve our issues. And so it goes, like undisciplined children everyone thinks their voice holds equal weight.Read More
@TiberiusBravo87 Is it really red vs blue on this one, or can we move past this illusion of faux tribalism? I think the split is more vicious than that, freedom vs tyranny, that regardless of what side of the aisle people sit they're either for the destruction of our last shred of liberty (if it even exists/ie selling us out to globalism) or they get one term because they actually want to change the retarded system that wants to scream and shout about virtue signal issues like the environment/future of sexual identity rights when people are starving and killed in meaningless wars right now in the present.
@sigdeff They are trying to do as much damage as possible before 2024. They know they can't blatantly cheat a 2nd time or we will start shooting, so that election might be clean. Well, cleaner. The illegals are the hedge against a legit election, just legalize a bunch of people who vote 85%+ Democrat up and down the ticket on a single issue (immigration). You know damn well if illegals voted majority Republican they would build that wall twice as fast as Trump was trying to. I still have no faith for 2024, they are trying to turn Texas hard-blue now with illegitimate voters since they know they cannot have another illegitimate election. Once Texas goes the entire US will need to burn and lots of liberal blood has to flood the gutters across America before this is resolved.
@redpillschool Que the liberal declaration: "Free speech doesn't mean freedom from consequences if you say something the people who have power over you don't like."
This trans thing is actually pretty out of control. If you don't believe that a man becomes a woman simply by saying the words, but you don't discriminate, you wish nothing but happiness and success on all people including trans people, and you do nothing that impedes the success and happiness of trans people, or any people, that is NOT enough.
If word gets out that you do not believe the way they believe, the mere fact that you BELIEVE something they think is wrong is hurtful and makes any space you occupy intolerable for them. You don't have to do anything discriminatory. You can even be helpful and help trans people along the way toward success and opportunity. But the mere fact that you believe something they don't and are allowed to exist is itself hurtful, and you must be kicked out of any space they may want to occupy to protect them from you.Read More
@neo_ Yup. It's only a matter of time before "must have negative covid test to travel" becomes "must have proof of up-to-date covid vaccine to travel". Down the line, it will be "must scan covid vaccine card to enter the gym or grocery store". Then "must upload a copy of your covid vaccine card before your Tinder profile is approved for use".
There's no not getting this vaccine. It's going to be required to live a normal life in most countries worth living in.
