I'm basically already committed to WOMPing his head onto TERRIBLE THINGS, hosting them somewhere and then making sure that's the first thing that comes up when you Google "Chasing Eris".

I mean, I don't especially dislike the guy, it just seems appropriate.

Or Kill Me / Re: We are <not> special

Fuck you, kid. You think we haven't heard this all before? You think you're the first fresh face running hands along the bars dribbling exclamations of surprise and wonder and hope turning to the stone walls, eyes wide, asking "what if?"

Fuck you, kid. You think you're the first one, not supposed to be here, destined for something more, smuggling a spoon into the cell and gradually chipping away at the walls, lounging about in the common space droning on about "when I'm free" and "life on the outside" oblivious to eye rolling and bitter, knowing smirks.

Fuck you. You want freedom? From what? From solid points of reference? From stability and structure? You're welcome to it, champ, but leave the rest of us out of it. You know what's outside of this prison? A blinding fucking search light, dazing you and inducing an immediate and irreversible headache. And then the dogs start barking, from every direction. You don't know close they are but you can feel them on your heels. How long have you been running? Gunfire. Screaming. Barking, always barking. The sirens rise from the silence you'll never know again.

But wait, you say, stretching the metaphor even further. What happens if you make it through all of that? Well, bucko...

Fuck you. That's what. You wind up crashing back into your cell and you spend a week or two, curled up on the floor, crying and trying to remember who you are, kissing the stone, running your hands along the bars, YOUR bars, and feeling an overwhelming gratefulness for your cell and everything in it.

So yeah, fuck you. Go ahead and fuck right off if you that's what you want. Or you can pull up a chair, make yourself comfortable and make your damn time.

Still up for me.
Should only be visible with the link I quoted, which is to the page history. The real page has been updated.

SAD

AND TEMPORARY
And permanently saved as part of wikipedia's history.

At least you tried!

Yeah.   :lulz:

I'm still cackling like a mad demon over Paes' vandalism of the Wikipedia page of some village in Norway  just to call Holist a twat. An insufferable one, even. I didn't lose the Eris, I just forgot she was there for a minute.

Dude, Paes, seriously, you made my Tuesday.
:thanks:

Techmology and Scientism / Re: Entire internet suffers man-in-middle attack

You can also do this sort of thing by exploiting bit-squatting (http://media.blackhat.com/bh-us-11/Dinaburg/BH_US_11_Dinaburg_Bitsquatting_WP.pdf), where a single one or zero becomes corrupted somewhere in transit or on an overheating drive or in bad memory and changes the cached URL. So your computer forgets about microsoft.com and is suddenly asking DNS servers "HEY GUYS, WHERE IS MIC2OSOFT.com?" and the attacker has dodgy content hosted at that address.

Spoke with a guy a couple of weeks ago who had done this for the root name servers, which are basically the authoritative source of truth on which name corresponds to which actual server. He registered the bitflipped versions of the root servers themselves, so every time a piece of hardware failed to correctly remember the name of the root server, it would ask his server where the rest of the internet was.

Instead of compromising individuals whose computers had failed to ask for the right website, he was compromising entire ISPs and all of their millions of customers. People were asking him "HEY, WHERE IS UPDATE.MICROSOFT.COM? HEY, WHERE IS VERISIGN?" A failed piece of memory at your ISP would result in it asking HIM for every website you want, and he could direct you wherever he wanted. He wasn't redirecting people anywhere, just responding with failure until the ISP tried something else and when people investigated, his site was an explanation of the attack, but he could have just as easily acted invisibly, altered or simply read the traffic before sending it on to its real destination.

For someone whose position isn't "people are trying to control my work" you sure are saying those exact words a whole lot.

Coincidence? I think not.

Ugh, why did I just reread this thread?

Dingo, you should fall silent for a while and then burst back in again in a month or so, to get the full CAPTAIN UTOPIA CAN'T LET IT GO effect.

More importantly I would feel like a fraud if I were to decide Loveshade were 'too unpleasent' to discuss. I'd feel like I was calling in everyone to smile nicely and look normal. I'm interested in showing all sides of Discordia, not in being an Erisian PR manager. If there are unpleasant things in Discordia, I'm happy to show what they are.

Really? Do you think Loveshade's failure to understand the intersection between age and consent is "an unpleasant thing in Discordia" rather than a perversion of an individual, while the individual also happens to have latched on to the Discordian label? Why did your journalistic integrity get stuck on this one case but not force you to hunt down every freak who every hail'd Eris and associate the label with the skeletons in their closets?

Is it because the community responded with "ew no?" and tried to CENSOR you forcing you to overcompensate in your SERCH FOR TROOF?
If so, how does that community response work as support of your notion that Loveshade is relevant to Discordianism?

I did attempt to find AKK at one point but was unsuccessful.
The only time in history when someone has wanted a link to AKK's website and he fails to provide one. Figures.
