McAfee Is Doing a Live Broadcast Tonight

Crime 201

paysonwelch writes "John McAfee, famed antivirus software pioneer and human rights advocate, today announced that he will host a news conference to ask the world for its protection against the Government of Belize. On his official blog, whoismcafee.com, Mr. McAfee has accused the Belize government of widespread corruption. Because of this, Mr. McAfee feels that he will be in grave danger if he were to be returned to there."

He may be a wonderful person. I've heard little about him, and it's good that he's trying to fight corruption in government (good luck to him). But does anyone actually like McAfee Antivirus? I always think of it as something non tech-savvy parents and grandparents use.

I just tried Bing, but by the time I got to around page 20 (skipping every 4-5 pages), I was given a captcha trying to get me to type some bullshit hard-to-read gibberish in to verify I'm not a machine. Fuck that shit, and I'll pass on using Bing in the future. Nice try, Microsoft. Not only did I still not find anything relevant, I was unable to skip through the search results to actually find something of interest without being bothered and accused of being a malicious computer.

"We know you want to get back to searching, and we want to help you do that.
We ask that you view the characters in the following picture and enter them in the box below."

Sure they want to help me get back to searching. Goodbye, Bing. You've helped immensely at reminding me that there are better search engines out there, where even if I still can't find something relevant for a particular query, at least their sites don't actively get in the way and prevent you from viewing the results.

MisterSquid (231834) | about a year ago | (#42239165)

Following the advice of someone upthread, I googled why McAffee moved to Belize and came up with "Four hours with John McAffee" by Adam Thomson [ft.com], a lively and entertaining read.

The article tells the story of McAffee's education, flight from school, and nearly accidental entrepreneurship and helped me to understand what there is to admire about him, especially given all that I knew about him was that the software bearing his name seems to be reviled by anyone with a technological clue and that he seems to be involved in some kind of chicanery that led to the execution of his neighbor.

On of my favorite parts of the article is its last paragraph, which seems to reveal McAffee has a sense of (ironic) perspective somewhere in among the fantasies occupying his mind:

We took some pictures, shook hands and said our farewells. There was just one more question, though: “Do you have McAfee antivirus on your computer?” He looked at me and put down his cigarette. “I take it off,” he said. “It’s too annoying.”

Re:Human rights advocate? (2)

Giant Electronic Bra (1229876) | about a year ago | (#42238387)

You took the words right out of my mouth. Since when is John McAfee a human rights activist? Smells WAY more to me like the guy is a totally out of control ego on a short road to hell. It wouldn't surprise me ONE BIT if he DID piss someone off in Belize. He's exactly 'that guy' that will push something until someone pushes back and then its all the rest of the world's fucking fault because heaven forbid someone inconvenienced the asshole or didn't give him what he wanted. People like this tend to get squashed like bugs. Especially in some backwater little place like Belize where the difference between the law and what some official decides is going to be convenient to be the law today you asshole are not real different.

No, it's really not hard. For those living in the largest western country, anyway, just dig into your local government a bit, and you'll see how corrupt that is, vs. what it appears to joe on the street, then you'll have no trouble understanding how bad it can get where they don't need to keep up appearances.

Guatemala wants to deport him to Belize, but he is a US citizen.

Right here you know something fishy is up.

Guatemala has no extradition treaty with Belize. The fact that he is an American citizen means that automatically, that is where he should be sent when deported, he has no say in the matter since he has entered the country illegally.

Being deported to Belize means someone, or many someones are being paid off by Belize.

Unfortunately for McAffee, he's been deemed wacky enough that the U.S. government seems unlikely to try and help him, even though he'll probably be killed if sent to Belize.

Fortunately for McAffee, he has a lot of money (apparently). The delay you see in deportation is probably the attempt to get him to out-bid Belize.
