Best Way To Clear Your Name Online?

jimbosworldorg Re:Information Overload is your freind. (888 comments)

I have the same first and last names as a daily AP columnist, a screenwriter, and a prizewinning novelist (who lives in the same state I do!). I'm not sure I could rob a bank and get myself on Google ahead of all that.

Best Way To Clear Your Name Online?

jimbosworldorg Re:welleee (888 comments)

At any rate, it sounds like this guy needs to smother this one little bad brief mention from years ago with a ton of really good, awesome stuff. What exactly are you doing now? Nothing? Is a law enforcement interview really the most exciting and noteworthy thing you've done in the last few years?

That's hardly fair - in the 90's, I wrote the code for what, as far as I could tell, was the first "forum title control panel" (a way to set up a table for custom titles for individual usernames) that ever existed. Despite that code showing up all over the world in what was for several years the most popular forum software on the internet, it's WAY less "newsworthy" than a publicised LEO interview over a system intrusion. Hell, I couldn't find my own example in Google's index just now.

Brain Differences In Liberals and Conservatives

jimbosworldorg Re:Could age be a factor? (1248 comments)

Is that why the vast majority of people do their best and most well known work before 30.

Ahhh, but they tend to make most of their money after 30.

HeliOS blogger assaulted by Windows techs?

jimbosworldorg jimbosworldorg writes  |  more than 5 years ago

jimbosworldorg writes "Remember the article in December about the HeliOS blogger who was told by a teacher named "Karen" that Linux was "probably illegal"? He's back again — this time, he claims that he was physically attacked in a gas station parking lot by techs from a Windows support company who were angry because he is "putting them out of business." Does anyone else smell fish?"
