We all screm.


On the other hand, Linux systems often contain more valuable things than Windows or Mac. The average person probably doesn’t have too much valuable data on their PC, but a web server? Database server? Corporate network control node? Those are jackpots in comparison.


Fun fact: “malware as a service” is very much a booming business on the black market. Usually in the form of things like cryptominers/cryptostealers, adware/scamware, spyware, and ransomware. You pay to buy prepackaged malware, usually one designed to make you money as a kind of return on investment, and deploy it.

It’s the reason security researchers often find that “this new malware going around” is “similar to/a strain of/uses the same engine as this older malware”.


When you post a pic of a legitimate and well documented US issue, it’s “politics” and therefore “removed from our apolitical sub”.

When you post any out of context accusatory image of China, Cuba, Venezuela, etc, it’s “raising awareness of human rights issues” and “how dare you speak out against this post! Don’t you know that you don’t get freedom of speech under communism?!”


“Okay Xi”

“What are you going to buy with those 50 cents?”


I seriously wonder how many people read it as “concentration camp in Angola”. Because hurr durr Angola flag socialist, hurr durr Gulag!


Guarantee you that some Usonians thought Ukraine was part of Russia before Crimea broke the news.


“But the free market regulates itself!”


Also because slavery is explicitly allowed in the US constitution as punishment for a crime.


Just say it’s in China. Then people’ll get REALLY riled up and the mods will probably even ban people for calling bullshit. /s


If a dataset is [10, 10, 10, 10, 1], then 80% are above average, or more specifically, above the mean.

That being said, bragging that you think you’re of above average intelligence is a thoroughly cringey and narsisistic thing to do. And IMO doesn’t bode well for that claim actually being true.


It’s the Eastern European one! Duh!

“Team blind” indeed…


Surely there are healthier ways of dealing with abuse fantasies. Seeing a therapist for example.


Nice try US troll


Just saying, this situation is the opposite of “video games cause violence”. People who do this already enjoy this stuff.



Fun fact, India's original constitution describes the country as a "socialist secular democratic republic"

It’s on page 32 of the PDF I linked, right from the government of India’s website. But the wording was changed away in 1976, removing the words socialist and secular…

The fact that there things inadmissable in court shows that we, as a society, do NOT subscribe to the notion of solving crime at ANY AND ALL costs. For example, we’ve generally agreed that confessions obtained through torture or evidence through illegal search and seizure can’t be used against a person. I think COVID contact tracing data should fall into that category.


I hate to say check your privilege, and I know it’s become a meme, but check your privilege.

The ability to choose to be non-political, and to demand conversations or spaces be non-political is evidence of an invisible privilege not accessible by all.


This was a pretty popular meme format among a… Certain group of internet users. The green hand representing an anonymous person (“anon”) should give you a hint of which group.

Trigger warning: the image within is a cartoon/comic of physical and emotional abuse.

 

So I’m not surprised that this is happening.


And of course they went with the protect children route. Like they think sex offenders obey the law and won’t use E2EE just because the government tells them not to.

It’s also a guilt trip/thought stopping strategy. It’s designed to make anyobe who supports E2EE look like they’re pedophiles or pedophile sympathesizers and effectively kills any discourse on the matter.













I got arrested for putting two different metals in a saline solution.

Got charged with a salt and battery…
