After Celebrity Photo Leaks, 4chan Introduces DMCA Policy

strstr Re:to clarify what this means. (134 comments)

remember w/ McKayla Maroney, she claims the pictures were faked though. if truly faked, there is no claim for prosecution, and she has no claim for damages.. :)

and I doubt the original model if faked will be identified unless they come forward to make a claim.

fakes = legal so. it really only matters the age of the actual models/flesh used.

After Celebrity Photo Leaks, 4chan Introduces DMCA Policy

strstr this is a jokeh (134 comments)

you don't have to follow DMCA if you don't want. basically there are things that weren't copyright violations under the old system before DMCA, and in that case if it was legal before it's legal now. this includes fair use of material, transformative and educational works.

with the DMCA system, anyone can submit a take down notice, claiming to be the copyright owner, and in my experience on YouTube and Facebook, this leads to mistakes and content that is knocked offline simply because someone else states a claim to ownership, even fake owners. Someone did this to Neowin's Facebook page, knocking it offline when Facebook refused to acknowledge who the true owner of the name Neowin was. plenty of content is forced offline from YouTube simply because "in the background" someone is playing a copyrighted song.

if DCMA was honored 100%, technically all material is copyright owned that is not in the public domain. this includes clip art, graphics, logos, jpegs, gifs, audio, movie clips, pictures of other peoples copyrighted works, etc.

a site like 4chan if copyright was 100% enforced thus could not exist. because almost all the content is someone's copyright or trademark. pictures of animal characters for example, movie clips, even the art of someone else that they post is copyrighted..

with DCMA there is a system in place of no due process, so technically they don't even have to prove ownership in court to force 4chan to comply with take downs. It will be hard for 4chan to weed out who is a fake or legit filing of DCMA take down notices, and it opens the system up to both abuses from people who want to sabotage this type of site & finally over aggressive filing of legit complaints that seem absurd but are actually allowed under the DCMA.

DCMA enables full censorship of a site like 4chan, and thus the internet community, all with no due process or court oversight.. They don't even have to prove damages before requiring content to be taken offline with that law.. Rip 4chan if someone decides to take advantage of any of this. ;)

New HTML Picture Element To Make Future Web Faster

strstr Re:Not an open problem. (161 comments)

this certainly sounds like the best solution. it's sort of like "bitrate" pealing. one file, all resolutions/quality levels built in.

the tag is not going to be a killer app because it's already possible to do this with JavaScript. JavaScript reads the screen resolution & downloads the appropriate version.

It does not need to be a dedicated tag to do it.

The Executive Order That Led To Mass Spying, As Told By NSA Alumni

strstr another executive order exists, much more powerful (180 comments)

Executive Order 13526 was issued on December 29, 2009 by United States President Barack Obama. It is the latest in a series of executive orders from US Presidents outlining how classified information should be handled. It revokes and replaces the previous Executive Orders in effect for this, which were EO 12958 (text) and EO 13292 (text).

Within this order, and previous orders signed by President Bush, and other Presidents, exists the ability to create classified systems called Special Access Programs. In a Special Access Program, the entire program is black and hidden. And it bypasses the FISA court just the same, as normally only those involved in the operation even have knowledge of it's function or existence.

Within these programs you'll find space capability, military radar, electronic warfare systems, ground and building penetrating tomography, and brain hacking / surveillance technologies, to which the FBI, CIA, NSA, DOD, and local and state governments are all utilizing to spy on and even to commit rapes and murders of American citizens. Details of operations with insider whistleblowers, NSA Russell Tice and DOD/CIA/US DOJ/NASA Dr. Robert Duncan: There's a good Russell Tice article talking about how Edward Snowden didn't have access to the juiciest documents, those hidden in Special Access Programs, Exceptionally Controlled Information programs, and Very Restricted Knowledge programs.

Video w/ Russell Tice available on this page and that previously mentioned page.

Two technologies are involved in these programs: NSA Remote Neural Monitoring and NSA Electronic Brain Link.

Sec. 4.3. Special Access Programs.

(a) Establishment of special access programs. Unless otherwise authorized by the President, only the Secretaries of State, Defense, Energy, and Homeland Security, the Attorney General, and the Director of National Intelligence, or the principal deputy of each, may create a special access program. For special access programs pertaining to intelligence sources, methods, and activities (but not including military operational, strategic, and tactical programs), this function shall be exercised by the Director of National Intelligence. These officials shall keep the number of these programs at an absolute minimum, and shall establish them only when the program is required by statute or upon a specific finding that:
(1) the vulnerability of, or threat to, specific information is exceptional; and
(2) the normal criteria for determining eligibility for access applicable to information classified at the same level are not deemed sufficient to protect the information from unauthorized disclosure.

(b) Requirements and limitations.
(1) Special access programs shall be limited to programs in which the number of persons who ordinarily will have access will be reasonably small and commensurate with the objective of providing enhanced protection for the information involved.
(2) Each agency head shall establish and maintain a system of accounting for special access programs consistent with directives issued pursuant to this order.
(3) Special access programs shall be subject to the oversight program established under section 5.4(d) of this order. In addition, the Director of the Information Security Oversight Office shall be afforded access to these programs, in accordance with the security requirements of each program, in order to perform the functions assigned to the Information Security Oversight Office under this order. An agency head may limit access to a special access program to the Director of the Information Security Oversight Office and no more than one other employee of the Information Security Oversight Office or, for special access programs that are extraordinarily sensitive and vulnerable, to the Director only.
(4) The agency head or principal deputy shall review annually each special access program to determine whether it continues to meet the requirements of this order.
(5) Upon request, an agency head shall brief the National Security Advisor, or a designee, on any or all of the agency's special access programs.
(6) For the purposes of this section, the term “agency head” refers only to the Secretaries of State, Defense, Energy, and Homeland Security, the Attorney General, and the Director of National Intelligence, or the principal deputy of each.

(c) Nothing in this order shall supersede any requirement made by or under 10 U.S.C. 119.

They can basically do whatever they want in Special Access Program. Anything, and everything, above the US constitution. There is no oversight at all.

CenturyLink: Comcast Is Trying To Prevent Competition In Its Territories

strstr CenturyLink (110 comments)

Should be forced to build out to poor areas. Reason is they will do exactly as Comcast says, they will not upgrade the rest of their piss poor infrastructure leaving it like it is now, where many houses even in nice neighborhoods can only get 1.5Mbps shit. Lucky for us Comcast is around because cable is the only viable Internet solution currently available because companies like CenturyLink fell back on promises of delivering proper broadband and deploying fiber ages ago.

Did you know in the 1990s these phone companies said the definition of broadband was 40Mbps and they would deploy it if given what they wanted? We never saw it and they got what they wanted.

What we gotta realize is that these companies aren't around to be purely profit driven and they have a mandated duty as a utility company to properly deploy fiber to each and every home which is consistent with keeping their systems modern and capable, which the public has an interest in. If we don't add important requirements for them to follow they shit on people and never do their job, which their job is to do what the communities around them want.

I am also for making it so whom ever deploys fiber first can do it, even the city, state, federal government, or private company, even if existing franchise agreements disallow it. BECAUSE WE SHOULD HAVE HAD FIBER DEPLOYED 14+ FUCKING YEARS AGO BUT IT DIDN'T HAPPEN BECAUSE OF THIS NON SENSE AND PRICKS IN POWER THAT LET THE COMPANIES MILK THE SYSTEM.

U.S. Senator: All Cops Should Wear Cameras

strstr just make sure (643 comments)

audio is recorded and that officers must submit to FMRI for lie detection, then we got a secure method of weeding out bad and lying cops.

without audio you might miss out on verbal abuse from the police or some type of verbal issue that is very important.

another thing since we're talking about security here, we should add audio to all jails, prisoners, detainment centers, cop cars, and hospitals used during court and jail procedures.

biggest problem is misconduct by the police.

there is another technology out there deployed on the nation called Remote Neural Monitoring, NSA/US military uses it but it cannot be used to convict a lying cop or government official because it's only used on the public for illegal surveillance. Details @ http://www.oregonstatehospital...

I think the Senator claiming it's for the protection of the cops is a nice one cause if the cops so innocent why he afraid to have oversight?

rules also gotta be: independent examiners can examine the footage, and cops cannot delete any of the footage at any cost for at least 20 years. that way previous misconduct can be reviewed..

this should apply to all nursing aids/jail staff/corrections officers, state, sheriff, police, FBI, and US marshalls, homeland security, US attorney's, and other people who are capable of abusing their discretion.

Latest Wikipedia Uproar Over 'Superprotection'

strstr Re: Too much good content is deleted at Wikipedia. (239 comments)

none of it's conspiracy theories. read the patent. look up Wikipedia article interferometry. read Dr. Robert Duncan (CIA/DOD/US DOJ/NASA employee)'s book The Matrix Deciphered or Project Soul Catcher vol. 2 (or listen to his many radio/TV interviews, I actually linked to one in the originating post). the satellites got ground and building penetrating interferometry/tomography. interferometry images waves, from space, including brainwaves and body matter.

patent is for a radar system to remotely read and alter brainwaves. no electrodes needed.


"the apparatus may be of type commonly deployed in radar systems"

Latest Wikipedia Uproar Over 'Superprotection'

strstr Re:Too much good content is deleted at Wikipedia. (239 comments)

besides notability the other problem is that editors tend to flip out and delete content that is well sourced but to which they don't want others to read or to which they don't "agree with" personally. this means that not all views are covered on Wikipedia and often times topics are lop sided and don't feature what some editors prefer to call "fringe" information.

Here are a couple of examples:

The pages are completely void of information on the Department of Defense doing brain hacking of civilians and using satellite to image peoples brains remotely, however huge whistleblowers like Dr. Robert Duncan and various DOD scientists like Dr. Fred Bell and Thomas Bearden have confirmed aspects of the system in place. Patents cover the technology, as do books. These whistleblowers have been on TV/radio about it. Pages in question that are devoid of the information due to edit wars: synthetic telepathy article was deleted in 2010 due to edit wars and censorship, the page now redirects to brain-computer interface. But the brain computer interface article after 4+ years is devoid of the information, and one blurb about it and the Department of Defense developing it has been edited out and back in several times. It currently remains but it was removed after 2011/2012 for a time period. the old Wikipedia page on synthetic telepathy is here:

The psychotronics webpage covering psychotronic weapons is devoid of information about the USA government targeting civilians even though books and whistleblowers have disclosed it is happening and real and very possible. When edit attempts are made or suggestions made, information gets removed by "warring" editors who claim verified public information is fringe (also see discussion on the talk page; previously I got banned for merely bringing up a discussion about it). See Dr. Robert Duncan's Dec 5th 2006 interview on Coast to Coast AM and his books sold on Amazon.

The entire website is devoid of everything except general articles on how surveillance can be conducted with space and ground based long range interferometry and tomography, enabling them (patented DOD contractor technologies) to read and alter brain waves and see through entire buildings, and this is left out as a capability of the NSA on all NSA articles despite whistleblowers and magazines like the 1996 Nexus article describing "Remote Neural Monitoring" and "Electronic Brain Link" aka synthetic telepathy and people discussing HAARP's ground and building penetrating tomography. NSA whistleblower Russell Tice confirms space capability has been used to spy on Americans in American soil including top government officials, lawyers, judges, and others under authority of the Executive Branch, while Dr. Robert Duncan a DOD surveillance system architect confirms the practice of remote brain reading and alteration has been included in all DOD/NSA radar/satellite systems since 1976 based on Robert Malech's 1974 patent.


The 9/11 page is devoid of information from Dr. Judy Wood and when I attempted to discuss this on the talk page it was repeatedly deleted within 15 minutes by any number of trolls who falsely claimed it wasn't real or a reliable source. Dr. Judy Wood is only person to perform a forensic investigation into the World Trade Center's destruction. Not even the 9/11 commission did so; She had access to building material, photography, and video footage previously not released until 2010 when she released her book, "Where Did The Towers Go? Evidence of Directed free energy on 9/11." Essentially the forensic evidence proves that directed energy was used to control demolition the World Trade Center, essentially dustifying it by destroying the molecular bonds with directed energy. She is supported by a White House insider and others in the scientific community. She also has a great video from her presentation at the "Global Energy Movement" conference in Holland 2012, covering this issue. Even the survivors of 9/11 tend to collaborate it including people who were on the lower levels when the building allegedly collapsed WHILE THEY WERE INSIDE. The building didn't fall on them, and apparently disappeared right over their heads suggesting it was being turned to dust rather than falling, leaving them un harmed. She documents hundreds of pieces of evidence including the John Hutchison Effect of electromagnetism on the metal beams of the towers, which were jellified. And the USA government has a weapons system to do it: ground and satellite based interferometers, which they've had since the 1950s. Some refer to it as the "Star Wars Beam Weapon".

Expert information is often devoid and is mostly propaganda on Wikipedia when it comes to recommendations about medications. Myths are documented, facts are omitted... especially on psychiatric drugs, where alternative information and information on their action is lacking.

Google's Satellites Could Soon See Your Face From Space

strstr what about radio spectrum? (140 comments)

uh do people realize these satellites have interferometry, and can image other spectrums and act as passive radar, not just in the light spectrum? this allows the satellites to technically image your pee hole and butt holes from space. yet the government and corporations simply refuse to state it, only to shield our fragile little brains from the knowledge of privacy violation.

so yeah they imaging our faces, like they image our books, and as they record us masturbating under cover of a building thanks to all the backscatter and radiation and bodily radiation emissions that's on the surface lighting us up even through matter and clothing and buildings. yeah it's pretty effective at imaging our bodies and brains, too.

City of London Police Take Down Proxy Service Over Piracy Concerns

do we want someone to be able to control the conduct of private citizens and organizations or do we not want? also who in their right mind truly believes each and every square foot of he world should be controlled by an organization that isn't the public, who's only purpose is to circumvent private individuals conduct enabling someone else to force their ideals and control onto them?

today's world, we shouldn't have to follow someone elses rule and I think it's time we rose up to fight government having any authority to regulate private citizens business. and this means taking away governments right to seed us messages, to confiscate our computers, to regular what people can and cannot say or do, etc.

I am generally only for laws that directly allow the protection of life but only as far as to prevent an actual murder or something. nothing else.

Nintendo Posts Yet Another Loss, Despite Mario Kart 8

strstr Re:Nothing beats a Nintendo game (203 comments)

I thought about the battery once, but cellphones last all day almost. Modern laptops last a good several hours of gaming, too.

The battery in the 3DS is actually small. If it was beefed up to cellphone size it could sport cellphone quality hardware. Thereby having no battery deficit enabling better graphics/screen resolution.

I also believe the touch interface for gaming is worthless. I can hardly stand the second screen on the 3DS because developers end up using it in gimmicky ways that detract from the traditional mode of play using the gamepad. Games to me require game pad, ..

Example: Diddy Kong Racing for the N64 plays best on N64 almost solely because of the gimmicky use of the stylus to replace some controls on the DS version. Like the boost at the start of each race requiring the use of the stylus, or the microphone in which you blow into it, OMG what idiots came up with this idea?

Luckily the touch screen/micro are not used much gimmicky like this on 3DS software but they did add the crappy gyroscope which gets abused by devs in a similar fashion. Like did you play Mario Kart 7 with the gyro? Or Super Mario 3D Land where some camera controls are replaced with the gyroscope? fuck gyroscope.

Cellphone's totally worse because gaming requires exclusive use of the touch screen and/or gyroscope. Making skillful responsive play impossible ...

Nintendo Posts Yet Another Loss, Despite Mario Kart 8

strstr Nothing beats a Nintendo game (203 comments)

Nintendo's games are great. The problem is the console hardware themselves. The Wii for example was basically an underpowered piece of shit that didn't do serious gaming.

Wii U hardly fixes that, but at least they moved back to a physical control stick and gamepad setup. However the issue is the console is like a quarter as powerful as the Xbox One and even slower yet than the PlayStation 4. In gamers and developers mind this makes the console unattractive and not worth owning or supporting.

The handheld consoles suffer the same fate. Basically Nintendo is not living life as if people give a fuck about the quality, style, power, and functionality of their hardware.

The 3DS could also use 2x higher res screens and better graphics. It's an improvement over say Nintendo DS which had the worst quality graphics imaginable, but it doesn't even come close to the quality I am used to on my cellphone which today literally have 4xHD screens.

The screen quality and overall lack of resolution seems to be a limiting factor to better games coming to 3DS.

I don't like cellphones however for gaming because there's just a bunch of retarded HTML5 style games, 2D little pieces of shit puzzlers mostly. Flappy Bird and Flappy Chicken, and Angry Birds, all these games suck. And don't compare to a good Zelda or Animal Crossing style game.

There are a few craptactular platform games like Sonic 4 but the graphics don't utilize the hardware and the controls suck lacking a control stick or buttons.

Cellphone hardware + Nintendo 3DS controls + Nintendo 3DS games = win.

What percentage of your media consumption is streamed?

strstr Re:Even my DVDs are streamed (152 comments)

1. Rip DVD using DVDFab HD DVD Decrypter (free) or the like. It rips Blu-ray and DVD of commercial type.
2. Build a 40TB home server ... store near unlimited amount of videos in uncompressed format. Use a Windows Media Center PC to stream the folder structure over gigabit home network. Set up 40TB server to transcode media into a format for portable devices and internet streaming if desired or do it as needed on your PC/laptop. Upgrade home server every 3 years by adding a new box as needed for capacity reasons mostly. Upgrade when full, so to say.
3. To do transcoding of files manually try Handbrake, StaxRip, XMedia Recode, MakeMKV .. all free transcoders. Try Nero Recode/Nero Video for a decent commercial trasncode / media solution (buy w/ rebates when on sale at Fry's, for like $15-$30). ...

All the before encoders use x264 as far as I know, allowing bitrate of HD video to be chopped to for more skills.

I buy commercial CDs for higher bitrate and greater lossless fidelity. I rent Blu-ray and DVD because internet compression and availability suck.

Therefore I stream only a small amount of files. That which can be found on YouTube. And vimeo, or junk videos my friend post on Facebook.

I purchase no streaming services. I don't use compression much due to quality loss.

I have been waiting nearly a decade for a service to buy 24-bit 192kHz losslessly compressed audio tracks (all current audio sources remain in "SD" and "HD" audio track selection is poor or unavailable). I have been waiting for internet video to stream at 100Mbps and focus on quality rather than bandwidth and file size optimization. I realize the corporations are holding us back refusing to build a robust system and this is why Internet sucks for media.

Attention all humans. NSA is scanning your brain. Literally.

strstr strstr writes  |  about 3 months ago

strstr (539330) writes "It turns out the NSA has been spying on our brainwaves remotely using space and ground based phased array antenna during black world programs since at least 1976, based on fully patented technology of a DOD radar contractor Dorne & Margolin Inc, a company bought by Electronic Warfare systems manufacture EDO Corporation in 1992, who later sold to ITT Corporation in 2007, who then spun off the assets to Exelis Inc. in 2011. The patent US 3,951,134, 1974 "Apparatus and method for remotely monitoring and altering brain waves" mentions using traditional military radar systems to perform the remote brainwave reading and manipulation. A previous DOD, CIA, US DOJ, and NASA employee named Dr. Robert Duncan with Ph.D from Harvard, MIT, Dartmouth, and Stanford confirms the system is real and operational today in interviews on Coast to Coast AM and Jesse Ventura's Conspiracy Theory, enabling psychic warfare, illegal tapping of peoples brains, and covert attacks using directed energy including full schizophrenia stimulation. The official term for parts of the technology is NSA Remote Neural Monitoring and Electronic Brain Link."

Ask Slashdot: The US Gov't targets you with mind control and energy weapons

strstr strstr writes  |  about a year ago

strstr (539330) writes "It's no secret that the US Government has developed electromagnetic weapons, which are often used for remote human sabotage and mind control. The NSAs own Whistleblower Russell Tice disclosed some of these systems, including satellites and ground based sensors that were deployed for use in Remote Neural Monitoring and Electronic Brain Link. Now, after 20 years of the American public turning a blind eye to the problem, police have massively deployed this system and now enjoy the capability to remotely invade peoples minds, bodies, and homes, without warrants, court of public oversight. They now have mind reading technology and energy weapons in use everywhere, and they are monitoring every one in secret. These systems allow the brain to be remotely linked and monitored by computer, and signals can be beamed into your body via microwave and terahertz wave radiation. Besides covert communication and spying, this system also allows secret remote torture — they can manipulate your brain and body with energy through the walls, and often times, it is being used to maim, injure, and set people up; simulating psychosis and setting people up to look mentally ill is often the objective. I had the misfortune of getting targeted by the US Department of Justice and CIA with this weapon in 2008, and I have since been a target for over 5 years. I live in an electromagnetic field, my genitals are messed with non stop, they beam useless images and sounds into my mind all day, and won't leave me alone. I have severe injury, swelling in my body, bad pain, memory loss, constricted burning tissue all over. They literally try to keep me incapacitated, inducing orgasms and doing things to damage my brain on a daily basis, and they will not stop until I am dead or completely unable to tell my story. My question for Slashdot at this point: What would you do if the CIA or government targeted you with a weapons system like this? Where would you go, what would you do, and who would you tell? Is there anyone out there you think would help? What if they didn't? Would you be like everyone else and just be forced to live with it, until you died? My website has a lot of information about this technology; you might pay special attention to nsa.pdf which nearly fully documents the NSA Russell Tice Revelations and this weapons system (this is the same system that is likely in use globally, and allows the US government to target and abuse whomever they please; it is likely the same system that's responsible for the abuse of the victims in the Mind Games article). There are many other websites out there as well. is a human rights advocacy group who promotes and offers information on the issue. The Washington Post article Mind Games talks about what it's like to live like this, how the abuse never stops, and how there isn't a government agent out there willing to discuss their taste for the publics abuse or blood.."
