"The Fappening" hacker sentenced as is the RNC

"The Fappening" hacker sentenced as is the RNC

Postby JDHURF » Sat Jul 23, 2016 8:16 am

I haven't been too very interested in the political discussions around here having come 'round to review them. As is the case generally with most such online platforms, such as reddit. In fact, this leads me to the following. I see that one of the principle hackers involved in the so-called "fappening" has been sentenced to six months in jail which could at least be a full year imo why hack people's accounts and circulate their private nude pics, let alone private information, online?!??!. I am not aware of his extent of involvement in the circulation of the hacked pictures, but to have hacked and placed online those pictures was a crime, period. Wow, finally, I think, let's see what Reddit has to say about this. I go to Reddit, "the front page of the internet." Nothing. I search the convicts name. Again nothing. "The front page of the internet"? Aaron Swartz didn't mean anything to the current populace of Reddit? I was right to have never taken Reddit too very seriously. What a shame and a sham of a place in the larger picture.

As far as the current election news:

I would advise against posting nude photos of yourself if you are worried about them leaking. Some people don't care whether they leak or not, but that's not true for most people...

You must not be aware of the circumstances of "the fappening". Nude pictures were not "posted" to any public platform. They were taken on private devices, stored in private accounts and only shared to other private accounts. A private account and a private account sharing contents with another private account is not posting anything to the global public platform.

What took place is the equivalent of entering someone's house without their permission and taking pictures out of their photo albums, making copies of them in a copy machine and taking, stealing, the copies while leaving the originals in the album. B&E and theft. If the pictures were of the residents nude and they were posted all over the world in public. How is that the homeowners fault?

Your implication, which is becoming menacing in conjunction with the implications which you have drawn within the thread you started and have discussed with Saz, is that people are not safe to have personal freedom and safety. There is a dark air of totalitarianism to some of your post's underlying ideology. Hopefully you are not expressing your actual views as articulately as you wish. It seems as though you only were not fully aware of what had taken place. That would be preferable. An instance of simply needing to be properly informed.

I understand exactly what you are saying.
And I still wouldn't share nude photos of myself unless I was comfortable with anyone seeing it.
Because honestly I don't care...I have no illusions about the 4th amendment surviving our current era...or other forms of privacy "protection".
But I am sure there are still plenty of people out there who believe that they can win the fight for privacy in our modern era, I applaud them in their vigor.
Though, it becomes rather obvious to the discerning mind which battles are going to be won and which ones are going to be lost, others will see it later than sooner.

It's not a "fight" that I can be bothered to "fight".

If, like me, you wouldn't be comfortable sharing nude photos of yourself, you might consider that when you go through an airport more likely than not the scanners they have you go through are literally taking nude photos of you and those photos may be shared as easily as those nude photos any private citizen takes of themselves on their phone or PC or anything connected online.

That's a bitter pill if you want to insist in your sigline.

I take Greg Giraldo's view, though not his lifestyle choices which resulted, unfortunately, in his untimely death, of post-cynicism. I am not cynical about it. I simply no longer care. What is, is. What can be done, can be done about it. I will live and not be bothered.

I don't care if other people have my nude photos.
I just try to make it harder for people to access them.
I honestly don't believe I could stop the people who want to illicitly obtain them, even if I wanted to.
So I don't waste the energy on this precious hope that there are some aspects of my life that are private.
It's a nice pleasant thought to consider and get you through many tough days, but the reality of things is much different...

So you are essentially post-cynical. I don't disagree.

It's a shame that privacy has been so violated, but it's not something that I spend energy on. As I said, I'm post-cynical. It will either become better or worse or it will or will not. I will simply not allow for it to bother my life.

You think you don't trust this government now, just wait until you try to hide something from it.
About the only way to ensure an uncrackable security would lead to it falling it into the hands of the dark web.
And then shortly behind government would be advancing research into quantum computing and expanding its powers.
I would rather the government have my private information than be able to have any seriously functioning quantum computer.
It's a tradeoff and you have got to pick the battles that are worth fighting and leave the other ones alone.

Of course, quantum computers are feasible now, but have a number of practical implementation roadblocks preventing them from becoming mainstream.
The only thing we can do as humanity is to start decentralizing the communication process and governmental authority in order to keep recovery an option.

I told you, I literally don't care. I'm not trying to hide anything and I'm not fighting to hide anything. If I have anything that anyone, let alone the government, has a problem with, come 'round. I'll be home. Tell me all about the alleged problem. There isn't one. There won't be anyone comin' 'round.

I do not care about the "dark web." I. do. not. care. If a violent, deranged criminal comes to my house for a visit it is not in anyone's best interest. The authorities won't be coming around unless they are canvassing for witnesses to a local crime and I would be more than happy to tell them any and everything that I know of and have witnessed regarding the nature of their investigation. Thankfully I am not aware of anything extraordinary happening near my living quarters.
