make use of african kettle? color propriety and the high pot

[revisiting]

adblock extensions killing the scammers’ interweb unlimited source of victims fantasy?

hopefully

This screenshot taken with “open blockable items” pane of AdBlock Edge expanded upward to show all blocked items on the “content” article deriding adblocking:

cerfing the interweb without adblocking is more foolishly self damaging than it is naive must adblock always interweb

(ajax.google temporarily enabled while attempting to register: blocked by default.  Before whitelisted a suggestion is sent to webmaster encouraging locally caching tools to avoid privacy raping visitors.  Google, an ad platform, hopes their tools are loaded as third party modules all the better to track and repeatedly rape you dearies)

 

Not that there was much to read of the ‘article’.  Without adblocking enabled the page had not finished rendering in well over 12 minutes.  It hanged on s.ytimg and googletagservices.  Not adblocking foolish?  My oh my yes.  How did I not adblock while avoiding injury?  Alternative connectivity.

Make use of is not interested in new registrations that fail to provide them raping privacy revenue:

http://www.makeuseof.com/wp-login.php?action=register

^ disabled.   get edjumakated:  no-www.org

 

The blathering is concentrated in the unqualified declaration:

sites are paid for displaying them either per-click or, in some cases, via a flat monthly fee

 

And HOW precisely does that function?  The author prefers willful ignorance as do most insisting they have presented an argument (they haven’t).

“you owe me”

No, I don’t.

Article relies on self evident falsehood:

but without ad revenues, there’d be nothing to read

Wrong!  How did the interweb funciton prior to the first scumbag advertiser?  (not all advertisers are scumbags)

Yes, johnny, the interweb predated privacy raping!  There weren’t hoards of imbeciles.  As with joining any other society one approaches with hesitation and respect as it is joining. One participates respectfully with civility.  Forum moderation is nearly dead with selfish indifference cancer.

 

Free lunch is real.

I have something to offer to those who sought it.  I expect nothing in return.

  • My interweb participation is CHARITABLE.
  • I came to GIVE.
  • I shall continue to GIVE.
  • Obviously I shall not give as much or even at all if/when I am not self sufficient.
  • I must care for myself and mine first.  This is NOT greed.
  • Inordinate self interest is greed.
  • Self interest is duty to myself and God.

 

If you do not want your content in the public sphere………  drum roll ……. don’t put it in the public sphere.  Protect it with BasicAuth (do use your interweb search skills) or other PayWall.

“but I want my site in the public sphere to be seen and complain when people see it because it is a not-public thing I am offering in public [insert other inanity]”

 

So close to illumination…

It’s obvious that without revenue to support quality content, that content will disappear

Yes, I covered that already; See above outline:  “If/when I am not self sufficient”.

Also true

the world will be worse off because of it

Yes, when there are fewer charitable people building the interest the world will be ‘worse off’.  It certainly isn’t better with profiteering by raping privacy rogues.

 

No honest exchange to be had there on their question:

If advertisements disappeared from all sites today, this is what would become of the web. [?]

It would improve in quality and dignity.  There would be free market to select winners for micropayment systems.  Much like the content I purchase now through a variety of platforms.  When it stops being of value to me I discontinue purchasing.  Sites will no longer treat viewers as chattle; raping privacy will cease.  Society will codify laws creating just consequence for raping privacy all the more lurid when the victims are minor — already unable to contract.

The irrational- and willfully ignorant are not exclusively proponents of privacy raping they are occasionally consumers

if people who want to see quality content on the web at no charge

People with righteous expectations of consuming content produced by the interweb charitable?  They’re not irrational.  Is the author creatively describing content piracy?

Piracy: not providing just compensation.

In the proper interweb model of charity there is no piracy concern.

If in the author’s construction there are no longer third party ads on the interweb…  when this obvious obviousnesses of logic is intentionally ignored…. ah, yes, we having a blathering ‘article’ insisting adblocking is evil and the interweb has always been such a way that it had never been ad nausea.

How about another bite of irrationalberry pie?

So long as Google and Microsoft remain powerful companies with great influence over how people view the Internet, advertising will remain the primary means of generating revenue.

 

They are?  That is some masterful control.  Care to explain how that works?  A clockwork orange setup while we sleep?

The irlogic is ilrefutable!

 say no to blocking ads [and embrace endless privacy rape]

Someone needs to take a refresher course on the mechanics of power.   adBlock is my NO to assent to be profoundly violated.

I am not a pirate.

wordpress 2-step security still laughable

Filed under: BULLSHIT — Sagacious Himself @ 10:24 pm
Tags: , ,

WordPress assumes proof of phone ownership can be completed with ancient sms texting — false as is auto-reply and deleted — or via privacy rape (Google Authenticator app).  And why limit users to phones?  What about ubiquity of other internets capable devices?

Two supremely stooopid options: old for the luddite, or new for the cretin.

wordpress laughable two factor options pander to luddites and cretins

To compensate for these laughable offerings wordpress offers OTP only after choosing one or the other stooopid options

“to make sure you’re never locked out of your blog, you can generate a set of ten, one-time-use backup codes. We recommend that you print the backup codes out and keep them in a secure place like a wallet or document safe rather than saving them on your computer, where they’d be accessible to anyone using your machine. ” 

“At the end of the setup process for  Two Step Authorization, you’ll be given the option to generate backup codes:”

 

Which is all the more curious given the necessity of the OTP completion

 Generating backup codes is essential and must be done.

ICANN to verify numbers and email address: verifiable profit for privacy advocates

icann.org/en/resources/registrars/raa/approved-with-specs-27jun13-en.htm

ICANN creates profitability for privacy advocates

to ensure successful verification

  • ICANN [policy] will advise you of imminent [registrar] call- or email
  • ICANN [policy] will advise you of [registrar] calling number[s]- or sender’s email address

FTW

(for the slow: you’ll know which numbers and CNAM, and email address to allow, rejecting all others)

icann halfassed sought public comment in narrow window neither did registrars during 18 months of negotiation contact customers

Do remember to

  • participate in  public icann discussions
  • participate in  icann calls for comment:
    • icann.org/en/news/public-comment/proposed-raa-22apr13-en.htm
    • with FOUR individual comments one might think ICANN didn’t want anyone to know about pending changes
      • do email your registrar to ask why they intentionally chose not to involve you in this hegemonic shift
    • those “great” americans at General Electric said: proxy and privacy services should be allowed only in “rare
      circumstances”
    • General Electric “requested mandatory suspension of domain names for the willful provision of false or inaccurate Whois information.”
    • General Electric’s particular brand of fascism linked in comment review was unavailable for direct review, web server reporting 404 for: forum.icann.org/lists/comments-proposed-raa-22apr13/pdfIW9ksOdAtH.pdf
      • fortunately I found a copy: forum.icann.org/lists/comments-proposed-raa-22apr13/msg00018.html ,
        • “Please contact” Sean Merrill, Ph 203 373 3328, fax 203 373-2181, “with any questions”
        • or Kathryn Barrett Park who penned the comments:  kathryn.park@ge.com , Ph 203-373-2655 , fax 203-373-2181
          • who notes the policy will “only serve to drive more Registered Name Holders to proxy and privacy services” therefore people must not be allowed to maintain privacy but be subjected to intense registrar scrutiny prior to domain activation
          • Kathryn wants the penalty be strengthened to mandatory domain suspension [hoping for immediate cancellation for those who mock her eremmm those who mock General Electric’s progressivism or other folly]
          • icann ocr renders her name as Kathryn Pork
            Kathryn Barrett Pork

DEMAND whois contacts to be able to use SIP URI instead of PSTN accessible values, DEMAND non-suspension if email communicant cannot  VERIFY they are a person via industry accepted Challenge Response system

Paying to receive spam/spin/calls is more imbecilic than sms texting or f*booking.

Free market enthusiasts and aspiring small business owners:

  • ICANN has unwittingly created a new market for whois data management:
    • processing whois email
    • processing whois calls
    • processing whois snail mail

in a way whois privacy scam-services have implied but never fulfilled let alone explicitly offered.

ICANN ought demand accredited registrars publish APIs for whois management as it’s to the public benefit (see first purple highlight above image)

  • presenting unique whois contact information for every inquirer
  • allowing whois privacy management firms to change underlying information based on firm’s privacy strategies
    • undesirable feckless caller volume
    • undesirable email volume
    • challenge response solved too quickly
    • DCC style patters across client base
      • publishing hashes licensed to other firms

Hopefully someone else will create such a service in the now accelerated arms race to personal privacy

Thank you, ICANN and the Registrar Whois Validation Working Group, for creating a new- and profitable use for 900 numbers and other toll calling!

With toll numbers people will likely “report” themselves ‘guilty’ of inaccuracy to generate revenue — delightful godaddy comeuppance:  icann.org/en/resources/compliance/complaints/whois/inaccuracy-form

voip.ms “upgrades” block G.722, removal of allow all codecs

Filed under: BULLSHIT — Sagacious Himself @ 5:11 am

Voip.ms restricts clients to non-HD codecs specially a mere three codecs now:

voip.ms officially disallows G.722 by removing Allow ALL codec option

 

G.711, G.729a, gsm

Which G.729 extensions you might wonder as G.729a is not specific enough… continue wondering about that and voip.ms HD suicide.

anveo.com continues to support G.722 (from starter package up)

ONLY ONE voip.ms upgrade outshines anveo:   TCP registration

yes, anveo offered SIP TCP long before but voip.ms has made SIP TCP available to ALL voip.ms clients.  Anveo requires a cost ineffective “Starter” service level for SIP TCP and G.722.  Low volume users need weigh the ~$8/mo cost for these two features.  This decision is made simpler by voip.ms abandoning G.722 (or not embracing any wide-band codec).  Remember:

  • anveo does not proffer free incoming SIP nor free outgoing SIP.
  • anveo provides free SIP alerts to all packages so there’s no reason to constrain SMS by SIP to starter and above
  • voipMS does provide free incoming SIP and free outgoing SIP, but they artificially limit accounts to one iNum citing imaginary voxbone policy, and some routing features “require” purchasing a virtual DID (SIP URI based on account number) $0.25/mo + $0.001/min
  • Vitelity.com unlimited [inbound] calling starts at ~$8/mo  (or better with PiaF signup gateway)
  • Vitelity also has a payg model alt to 8/mo

It would be foolish (or stupid) to use voip with tiny-band ISP…. so CEASE PANDERING to the cheap and offer more wide-band codecs.   The CHEAP will remain CHEAP.  (hint: they’ll not spend [much] money on services)

VZW prepaid daily not a bargain if using recycled numbers

Filed under: BULLSHIT,verizon circumvention,verizon sucks — Sagacious Himself @ 6:48 pm

VZW prepaid daily seems like a good plan for CL or other cloak and dagger operations.  However “new” activations are issued heavily abused numbers from a small recycled pool 😦

$2/day prepaid quickly loses value when DebtCollectorLucifer calls for Bob Smith from several different obviously spoofed numbers several times per day.

fortunately TXT is not billed until opened.  And much akin to TracFone some VZW non-sim prepaid phones offer better TXT windows if you’re not outright blocking TXT.  Combine with voip sms to sip/xmpp/fwd for less poor results.

mobile carrier really REALLY OUGHT to provide customers server side PBX finesse powers for TXT- and call filtration!

provide a better number with the GOTCHA that VZW policy prevents incoming calls during port-in process!!

If you need a phone and need inbound calling now you DON’T WANT VERIZON WIRELESS directly; you want a VZW MNVO like TracFone, StriaghtTalk, etc who allow incoming calls during port-in process

FreedomPop free 4g is free except for the fees and evil billing practices

edit topical: solution alternative

Are you considering a secondary/portable internets access for entertainment  elsewhere?  Consider instead SickBeard as ethical usenet.  This will allow you to eliminate the cost of DVR rental at home leaving your funds to purchase LTE bandwidth while still reducing monthly  spending overall.  Do NOT enter into a contract with sprint/clear.  If clear/sprint only use Pay As You Go (if they require your social security number or the last four digits or openly declare the need for a ‘soft credit check’ you are being entered into the contractual relationship you need AVOID.).  To employ usenet ethically you must pay/license your tv/movie content through your ISP/satellite/other  amazon/netflix.  If you download from usenet without just compensation to content producers you will be ethically/legally guilty of piracy (depriving others of just wages).  You can ethically download programs from  ‘air channels’ or those you can receive with merely a tv and hd antenna when currently airing and within a few weeks of airing. Easily watch on TV device via xbmc or openelc on either root’d amazon fireTV or low cost RaspberryPi.

 

 

edit 2014:

“free”dompop has made no effort to refute these claims [here].  They have spent a pretty penny hiring web PR drones to spew hype at times “article” comments — which apparently is bean counter less costly than an ethical policy change.  Some of the cost landmines are rectified some of the time IFF customer spends inordinate time to resolve.  “free”dompop abuse will continue as only those whose time is worth little will pursue the interaction — and foolishly not in writing (on paper).  Try returning your “leased” device for a refund if for no other purpose than to new it up.  Are you charged the undisclosed $9 return processing fee?

https://www.freedompop.com/service_plan_terms.htm

“free” device with $50 or $90 refundable deposit after $5 shipping less undisclosed $8.95 return fee.

free until it’s NOT-free:

Deposit refund is time limited after which the loan becomes a purchase.

Free monthly service provides 399 megs of transfer in a 30 day cycle

once you hit 100 megs short of your monthly allowance (500 megs) “for your convenience” freedompop will charge a minimum top-up of $10.   If your prepaid credit drops to $2 you will be charged another $10 top-up.  Exceeding 500 megs per month incurs a cost per meg.

Another evil gotcha:  if in your monthly “free” cycle you do not consume 5 megs you will be charged a $0.99 penalty to remain an active client

To remain a FREE user you must use at least 5 megs EVERY month AND NOT more than 399 megs per month.  Account reactivation penalty is $20.  To avoid any fees AND recoup deposit one must send written on paper notice of cancellation. 

If you violate any third party terms which are NOT available for viewing your account might be canceled and you agree to forfeit your device deposit.  Sounds like a microsoft eula sight unseen.  The same applies to freepop terms in the paypal “sole arbiter of truth” sense.

You may opt-in to extra-spam or privacy-rape third party offers for minuscule bandwidth bonuses.  You are required to provide a valid email to receive volumes of freedompop spam.  freedompop collects a phone number in the name of fedex.

apparently freedompop users can communicate with one another via the 4g network. hmmmm

Top-up balderdash applies to pre-paid accounts as does minimum usage penalties.

I will be taking extra unmentionable precautions when I signup in a coverage area.

Please remember to send written opt-out of binding arbitration within first 30 days of signup!

You agree to allow FreedomPop to stalk you upon login to any “social” site according to their “privacy” rape policy https://www.freedompop.com/privacy.htm

We store the information that you receive from the social networking sites along with other information that we collect from you or receive about you.

..

When you access our Services using a mobile device, we may receive or collect your mobile device ID (often referred to as UDID), [[which is why all android users ought apply PDroid XPosed framework & XPrivacy]] mobile carrier, device manufacturer and phone number. We also collect information about your usage of, and activity on, our Services. We and service providers acting on our behalf, such as Google Analytics

..

to send you text messages;

..

Where permitted by law, and if you have not opted out, for telemarketing purposes;

In the acceptable use policy you agree that in the relationship only freedompop may abuse your privacy, endanger your security, send spam, perpetrate fraud, mislead others, engage in “deceptive advertising or [deceptive] communication”, collect personal information of others.

For example FreedomPop explicitly claims that there are no caps or throttling but in the above acceptable use policy: “will monitor both overall network performance and individual resource consumption to determine if any user is consuming a disproportionate amount of available resources… [reserve the right to throttle or cap]”.  Which seems especially odd for a company that charges per meg overage penalties.  FreedomPop will use the phone number they collected “only for fedex” to call you during such operations.

If you are unavailable or do not respond to FreedomPop’s attempt to contact you regarding excessive use, or if excessive use is ongoing or recurring and repeatedly having negative effects on other subscribers of the Services, then FreedomPop reserves the right to immediately restrict, suspend or terminate your access to the Broadband Service (and/or other applicable Services) without further notice

Despite your use of a $90, 8 party, FreedomPop wifi device you may not

 sell, provision, resell, rent, lend, pledge, transfer, distribute or exploit any portion of the Services or Equipment without FreedomPop’s prior written consent in each instance.

When otherwise is not an illicitly obtained phone number what is it?

When feasible, upon observation of a violation of this AUP, FreedomPop may attempt to contact you by e-mail at the e-mail address you have provided to us or otherwise to notify you of the violation

it’s free: simply give them money,  and operate amid a penalty minefield. Terms are subject to nefarious changes especially materially to financially benefit freedompop at your perilous expense.  FreedomPop seems evil.

For a similarly evil experience (with a non-refundable lower mifi fee plus outrageous “shipping” fee) consider suffering at the hands of Netzero 4g. Free netzero is 200 megs. Amusingly netzero “requires” you not MAC spoof or alter device unique identifier.  hahaha riiight PDroid XPosed framework with XPrivacy.  Netzero requires completion of third party “offers” and spam generating “opt” in activities.

If you must have mifi or 4g contract directly with ClearWire via clear.com or via an ethical reseller (not “freedom”pop). [[ClearWire now owned by Sprint]]

# freedompop lies to customers, freedompop deception is rampant, freedompop dishonest practices await, behold freedompop trickery at every turn, warning freedompop evil inside, this freedompop scam continues, freedompop is a scam, freedomtrappop, freedompop rape, freedompop now has a phone scam, the wifi phones for freedompop make verizon spying seem pleasant

free 4g from “free”dompop?  How gullible are you?  Answer in terms of dollars.

Privacy is a right.  Privacy is NOT a commodity.

 

Please do not whore your privacy for “free” stuff/services.   It harms you AND harms others by eroding the Expectation of Privacy.

Privacy Rape as profit is extraordinary evil.  At the very least always AdBlock all interweb use.  Third party interweb ads = privacy rape.  Privacy ‘can’ be sold in much the same way children can be sold as a product:  both are evidently wrong.

BS from the H+ camp

Filed under: BULLSHIT,social engineering — Sagacious Himself @ 6:16 pm

quote from their ever so delightful “futurist” magazine

Mental self-defense is also necessary. Although not subject to direct physical harm like the body, viruses propagate through the mind in much the same way as they do through the body. Although many of these viruses are beneficial- cooperation, freedom, rule of law, democracy — many of them are actively harmful. Racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, xenophobia, ad infinitum separate us from those who may otherwise have offered us valuable tools in our struggle for survival- even if we don’t personally engage in those behaviors ourselves. Although they are not physical, ideas have very real effects in our daily lives. It behooves us to study which ideas promote survival, individually and collectively, and which ideas prevent our survival, and act accordingly.

verizon wireless prepaid GOTCHAS with LNP

Filed under: BULLSHIT,How To,sigh,verizon sucks — Sagacious Himself @ 2:55 pm
Tags: , ,

If you’re planning to port-in a number to your verizon wireless prepaid (non-sim) device

  • do NOT activate it
  • FIRST initiate the port-in process
    • VZW will collect: MEIN, current MDN (uh oh catch 22), account password (uh oh catch 22),
  • ideally: wait for the port department to call you with competition notification
  • *22899 to [re]activate new VZW account profile to device

.

OBSCENE VZW prepaid GOTCHA:

  • during the prepaid port-in you CANNOT receive calls on the handset
  • VZW cancels the current MDN and immediately assigns the port-in as MDN *prior* to port-in completion
  • VZW claims minutes cannot be transferred between devices
  • minutes on current MDN will be FOREVER LOST when MDN is cancelled

other MVNO of VZW do not have this ultra retarded policy: they want you to spend your incoming minutes.

  • Port-in to TracPhone (on verizon): keep existing number until *228 pushes port-in MDN.
  • Port-in to StraightTalk (on verizon): keep existing number [MDN] until *228 pushes port-in MDN.

.

What should happen on prepaid should match VZW MNVO and VZW contract:

  • profile created with port-in MDN and pushed through activation (*228) AFTER port-in completes
  • allow one to receive calls at original MDN during port-in process
    • allows subscriber to forward all calls from port-in number to current number for a SEAMLESS transition from the perspective of callers
  • properly handle RDNIS information

.

Attaching minutes the MDN is obviously FOOLISH.  The MIN would be better suited allowing a minute share between current- and would-be MDN.  There are other VZW tools available to help verizon customers spend money on verizon services during the port-in process.

.

VZW agents additional DAILY prepaid silly claims (read as: FALSEhoods):

  • only charged for calls answered by- or initiated from handset
    • not charged for calls dumped into voicemail
    • not charged for calls answered by NoAnswer-Busy-Forwarding line
  • voicemail is deleted from account in 60 days if not setup

outlook.com antispam adds whitelist weight to email addresses used at “social” datamining sites.  Are you wise enough to avoid the folly of volunteering time to ad server profiling?  Then outlook.com might punish you for sending email.
