Kaffie commented on Kaffie's post: @Blurhy: Yeah. Could you provide the file? On my site you can see I have sql.js in there, but perhaps it's an old version? Can't remember where I got it from. Edit: Oh. Yeah needs to be js.
Kaffie commented on Kaffie's post: @Blurhy: Could you provide the sql.js file you're using?
Kaffie commented on Kaffie's post: @Blurhy: I'm getting `Error: no such function: REGEXP`
Kaffie commented on Kaffie's post: @Blurhy: Could you give an actual example of a query that works? I can't seem to get it working.
Kaffie commented on Kaffie's post: @SSDifnskdjfnsdjk: Ah, the direct link to it worked. It just didn't work when I clicked the links from the front page for some reason. @Blurhy: The sorting I used on my page was just by time. Kaffiene I had actually fetched peer/seed counts for each site, but that's a bit difficult to do now, and isn't exactly automated. For the zerome user search what I did was grabbed the number of followers and sorted that way (more popular users were higher up). Good to hear regex should work with sql queries.
Kaffie commented on Kaffie's post: @SSDifnskdjfnsdjk: yeah it's a very basic search. Kaffiene is more flexible in that regard. Should be easy enough to add I think? Though the way kaffiene searched was a bit different (basic regex text search rather than querying a db). Can you do regex searches on dbs? As for combining results, the problem is that there's no way to actually sort them. Not sure how I'd go about doing that. As for your link, the searching of the external sites doesn't seem to work for me.
Kaffie commented on Blurhy's post: @blurHY: Could you give the ipfs link to that site? I'm happy to participate on the forum if it's decentralized. Sounds neat. When I said "forum or a place to talk" I didn't mean the clearnet. If you're using the clearnet to discuss a decentralized platform, it's already a failure.
Kaffie commented on Kaffie's post: @Blurhy: I don't even know how to do that on my machine, let alone some random joe who almost certainly doesn't.
Kaffie commented on Blurhy's post: @blurHY: My rule of thumb is that if it doesn't even have a forum or a place to talk, it's not a good replacement for the web.
Kaffie commented on Blurhy's post: @blurHY: seems like damn near every ipfs link I've tried is dead. No content, content never stays up, and no way to interact with sites. Kinda makes it useless.
Kaffie commented on Kaffie's post: @Blurhy: Then we still run into the same problem: developers who don't add a search feature to their site.
Kaffie commented on Kaffie's post: @Blurhy: The problem is that SQL dbs can be structured in many different ways. So you're basically just stuck writing complex sql queries to fetch content. Not exactly user-friendly. Sites themselves can add in search features, such as how kopykate did. But I found kopykate's search/browse function to be cumbersome. And many sites don't include a search function.
Kaffie commented on Blurhy's post: @blurHY: Having nothing accessible is a feature?
Kaffie commented on Kaffie's post: @Caropc7: Thanks. If you like what I do *please* consider supporting me through patreon, as I'm currently unemployed and struggle financially.
Kaffie commented on Blurhy's post: Has IPFS resolved the hosting issue yet? ZN is much more reliable.
Kaffie commented on Kaffie's post: It was a pain to grab the usernames for the zerotalk topics. Had to do a lot of weird SQL that I'd never done before. And I hate SQL lmao.
Kaffie commented on caryoscelus's post: Ahhh that's me. My mind just glitches out and I'm just entirely unsure of what to do. Like why tf did you put a dish in the sink??? Should I remove it? But now it's soaked? Should I wash normally and ignore it? But then there ends up with a buildup of water in the sink or on the existing dishes in there.
Kaffie commented on Nicehat's post: surgery is intense, but in many cases it's needed.
Kaffie commented on Kaffie's post: @Crazylime: Because if they understood they wouldn't say or do lots of things they do.
Kaffie commented on caryoscelus's post: Normally that sort of bug happens when you try to "switch" hubs and do so in an imperfect way. ZeroMe doesn't exactly have the best design as users are "locked into" a particular hub, and there's quite a few places this is set.
Kaffie started following Neuralgirls
Kaffie commented on Kaffie's post: @Neuralgirls: Exactly. It's hard for men to understand why this is so harmful to women, but honestly they should just trust and accept what women are saying about it. They don't and can't know what it feels like.
Kaffie commented on Kaffie's post: @Iloveguac: Pix2Pix combines an image/video with a style. It doesn't create new content. But with just a face you could do a traditional deepfake (putting the fake on videos that the person did not act out) and there are tools to find actors/actresses who most closely match a person. I do understand what you mean by "best practice". Ultimately I feel women will need to start dressing more modestly to avoid this, as I mentioned in the original post (things like tunics, dresses, and skirts mess up the algorithm). For stopping face tech, naturally we can avoid posting our photo online, but also start using face coverings. [Something like this would work for a face covering.](https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/603151912560361504/612277626853392385/iu.png) And something like [this](https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/603151912560361504/612275714758148130/iu.png) or [this](https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/603151912560361504/612275756038619136/iu.png) is a style of modest dressing that would combat the tech I shared in my OP. These would combat both types of deepfakes that can harm women. Ultimately it shouldn't be the responsibility of women to protect ourselves from such harassment and attacks, but in practice that's what will need to happen. I intentionally did not name the software I was testing because I do not wish for people to use it. It's a bit technical to set up at the current moment, but when it first rolled out it was not (but that implementation was taken down). Being able to generate full bodies/people from effectively nothing (just a trained AI) is not something that's available to the public, but you can see companies have already managed to do so with clothed people. It's only a matter of time before such technology is available to the masses.
Kaffie commented on Kaffie's post: @Iloveguac: You seem to not understand that this technology could be used by anyone.
Kaffie commented on Kaffie's post: @Iloveguac: Because coworkers aren't "random people you don't know"?
Kaffie commented on Kaffie's post: @Crazylime: The problem with that line of thinking is that there's a difference between pickup lines (even failed ones) and sexual harassment. It's why I don't really have an issue with something like catcalling. It's one thing to try and talk and hook up, it's another to literally make fake nudes of a girl and spread them around, including to those she may know.
Kaffie commented on Kaffie's post: Why do men seemingly fail to understand why sexual harassment is bad?
Kaffie commented on Kaffie's post: @Iloveguac: It doesn't actually know. But instead uses AI to figure out what "should" be there. It also matches skin tone and the like. Effectively it's no different from someone putting in effort to do what are called "fake xrays", which have the same sort of effect/result. The worrying part here is the realism and lack of skill required (before it was something only certain people could do, now it's easy to do with a click of a button). Moving forward this can be incredibly harmful technology. Imagine doing it to whole videos. Or being able to easily take a video of someone and be able to freely manipulate the person's actions. That's where this is headed. I get y'all aren't women and don't see why this particular use case is bad. But consider politics. I posted recently about how deepfakes are being used to target candidates like Andrew Yang and Nancy Pelosi. And they'll be a bigger issue as time goes on. Saying "just give out real nudes so there's no damage" completely fails to understand what the damage *even is.* It's a sexual exploitation that simply shouldn't happen. As for "see how bad it is" I provided a link to the results and explained the effects of the current software. I intentionally didn't name the software nor provide a link, specifically because I cannot see a use in this technology. Feel free to look up pix2pix which is the safe and useful version of the technology. @Znnex: Giving out real nudes would be worse than having fake ones being spread around. Tf? Do you not understand the problem at all? Jesus at this point I wonder if men are just incapable of understanding privacy and bodily autonomy.
Kaffie commented on Kaffie's post: @Crazylime: Different people have different views. I think as long as nudity and seeing sexual organs is considered sexual, modesty will remain in some form. And given that male attraction is primarily visual and focused on female sex traits, I doubt that's going away any time soon. Ultimately I feel that the way things will go is that women will gradually start dressing *more* modestly, with some outliers in the opposite direction.
Kaffie commented on Kaffie's post: @Crazylime: It's a bit of a double edged sword. I see many of the men here posting porn and I have to wonder: do the women in the photos and videos actually know that such content about them is being spread around here? Do the men care at all or give it a thought? Centralization can give the power to protect against these sorts of offenses (including things like child porn), but can also be used to censor. And centralization and power leads to corruption and harassment. Balancing my natural need for modesty with my ideals about information and omniscience is something I struggle with in our increasingly decentralized and cyberpunk future. I think it's a struggle that all women will face in the future. There's also a growing cultural divide. Women who support sexual liberation and embrace the fact that nudes of them will exist and have no problem with it. And the other half who wish to stay modest for personal or religious reasons, who struggle with such widespread dissemination of photography and videos. I don't think such personal invasions are at all necessary for the time being, especially since we don't really have a way of organizing, standardizing, or using such collected data for scientific research (the point of collecting it in the first place).
Kaffie commented on Kaffie's post: @Crazylime: I'm a woman, so naturally this is the line for me. I can see the need for privacy in the current society. In an ideal world I feel that the culture would just have basic respect for women and no one would care to see IRL women nude, but instead be fine with generative porn. Ironically the reverse is true for literally all of the stats/numbers of about my body. I don't care if people have that information, provided it's not used to harass/harm. But thinks like involuntary porn can be deeply harmful to women and used as blackmail and other horrible things. Privacy, as always, is used as a form of defense. And naturally inside of our current culture, many women are naturally modest. Which is why "seeing them naked" is such a draw in the first place. If the world was nudist, there wouldn't be such a problem.
Kaffie commented on Kaffie's post: @Neuralgirls: I'd love to see something like shoujo romance manga be auto-generated. But this type of stuff is never done for women, only men.
Kaffie commented on Rixil's post: Yes. You can use any zeronet site without an internet connection, including zerome. However it naturally won't sync up with online peers if you aren't online. Edit: You won't be able to download new optional files that you hadn't downloaded prior to going offline. Since they aren't dl'd with the site (hence the name optional).
Kaffie commented on Kaffie's post: @Bigbadbob: Is there a way to do that? I hear a lot of good about canada, but in practice they just seem to be the US with some added benefits? From what I can tell, canada has strict immigration requirements, and is still very capitalist and doesn't support people whatsoever (ie poverty in canada = poverty in the US). @Caropc7: Again you seem confused. The countries you listed are capitalist. I don't mind a capitalist country if they can actually help. Your comments on employment are borderline retarded. The idea of violent enforcement of ownership **IS COERCION** by definition. The US, by definition, is one of the *least free* countries. Many countries have much more freedom than the US. As for exmployment "leave and go work somewhere else" misses the point entirely when *everyone refuses to hire.* So leave *who?* It's clear you don't read. @Znnex: Finally someone with basic reading skills. AFAIK there's no actual country that will help, as most have been conquered by the capitalist imperialist empire. The few countries that remain are in extreme poverty due to manufactured famines and war. Along with strict immigration and communication policies to prevent contamination from outside groups. Not exactly ideal, especially for someone who needs healthcare. Ultimately the solution is "be born somewhere else". Which can't really happen.
Kaffie commented on Kaffie's post: @Caropc7: You seem confused. I'm more than willing to work. But to do that someone *actually has to hire*. Capitalist pigs refuse to hire and then demand we starve and stay ill and homeless because *they* refused to hire? fuck that and fuck you capitalist pig. Oink oink. Statistically speaking, those who do the least work have the most wealth. Those who have more wealth do less work to earn the same income as someone who has less wealth (who has to do more to earn the same amount). Those who are poor are often times ill due to being unable to afford healthcare, which again makes it difficult to earn a profit. Also: wealthy people do not contribute anything of value. They don't help the poor/sick/homeless. They don't produce things people do. All the rich capitalist pigs do is hoard their wealth and make things more difficult for the poor. Let me ask: if someone has a disability, how do you expect them to work? If capitalist pigs refuse to hire or pay the poor for their labor, how do you expect the poor and disabled to turn a profit? Do you know? Or do you pretend such people don't exist? Kindly fuck off. Thanks.
Kaffie commented on Crazylime's post: \>using bloated webtools I like how ZN basically requires people to make lean sites, rather than bloating with needless frameworks/libraries.
Kaffie commented on Blurhy's post: "all metadata ever published on the network" "site index" These ideas have already been rejected by nofish. Any auto-discovery of a site is a no-go. There is one solution I saw which fetches the auth_address of a zeroid, and then uses that as the address for name.zeroid domains. Subdomains then have a metadata file inside of the name.zeroid site to redirect people. Its a plugin which hasn't been updated to python3 yet, but worked great on the older py2 builds.
Kaffie commented on Kaffie's post: @Caropc7: I think you're a bit delusional about how the US is. There is no freedom here. Nor quality of life. The countries you listed all seem better to me than here in the US. I already have a bitcoin wallet set up along with a patreon. You say "just work" as if it's that easy and simple to do. The reality is that if you don't "just work" here, you starve and become homeless. And it's impossible to "just work" as people are stingy with money and refuse to hire people. Besides african countries in poverty, I can't think of anywhere that's truly worse than the US. Even places such as iran seem superior. @Mg0: My desire for suicide isn't chemical, but cultural/societal. My brain is fine, it's society which is sick. @Kid Courageous: I know I have mentioned it but in practice I can't flee the country in the short term, because I cannot afford a passport or living expenses, nor a plane ticket. And visa/immigration requirements seem needlessly strict in every country, presumably to lock people into the country they were born and restrict movement (except for the rich who seem to be able to go wherever they want).
Kaffie commented on Kaffie's post: @Blurhy: tired of living like this
Kaffie commented on Publicality's post: ZeroVoat is still not on the merger system yet, right? I feel like most people avoided it because for most of it's existence it's been obnoxious to use and I think it's kinda dead now.
Kaffie commented on Kaffie's post: @Styromaniac: Nope. Gabbard is awful. Homophobic/Transphobic, war hawk, general dem policies, avoids addresses true issues. I like williamson but I'm not sure how committed she'd be to UBI.
Kaffie commented on Crazylime's post: @Kid Courageous: Yes. There already exist browser modifications to support zero://, http://zero/, http://zeroidname.zeroid, and http://domainname.bit style addresses. I have all three set up on my machine. The problem is doing such a link would break for people who don't have it set up, and there's no way to automatically set it up. See: http://127.0.0.1:43110/kaffie.bit/test.html @Crazylime: See the page I linked. I have a .pac file that sets it up. @Pigpog: See my earlier comment why relative links don't work for all users.
Kaffie commented on Crazylime's post: @Kid Courageous: one solution could be to auto-detect links in the form of http://zero/address and http://domainname.bit and auto-change them to http://127.0.0.1:43110 unless the user has specified that they support those.
Kaffie liked Ota's post
Kaffie commented on Crazylime's post: Relative links break for people who directly visit .bit urls. For instance my navbar says http://me.zeronetwork.bit/, so a relative url for something like kaffie.bit would end up as: http://me.zeronetwork.bit/kaffie.bit. Linking is so fucked rn, we really need a standardization so that we can stop this 127.0.0.1:43110 nonsense.
Kaffie commented on Kaffie's post: I'm a bit conflicted about Yang now. If it's fake, it's deeply concerning how he'd remove his policy on it and just quietly accept it. If it's real, it's a bit concerning that his staff would ban people for asking for the source video to literally hear Yang speak about stuff. Removing his policy without notifying anyone or clarifying it has been removed is also troubling. What else has been removed? Why isn't there a public list of policies he no longer supports? His transparency is plummetting, and it was what made me support him in the first place.
Kaffie commented on Blurhy's post: @blurHY: Then no. everything can be decentralized, as files can be copied infinitely. The one and only real problem is unique legible domain names, as having a decentralized system would violate zooko's triangle.
Kaffie commented on Blurhy's post: @blurHY: Technically there's nothing that can't be decentralized. In practice there's things like mining for resources, farming, etc. that are difficult to decentralize.
Kaffie commented on Blurhy's post: @blurHY: a hierarchy inherently requires fewer people at the top and more below. And as a result can't be decentralized, since by definition the power in such a structure is monopolized and centralized.
Kaffie commented on Techtheawesome's post: Yes. Users who have chosen a hub that you don't download won't appear on your general feed. But they *can* appear in comments. So basically I'm on my own KaffieHub which many people have. My comments will appear on the hubs they're posted on, but anyone who hasn't downloaded KaffieHub won't see my posts (or this post here). If you want to see all of the content, you'll want to download all of the hubs. This is done to relieve the workload of people who don't care to see everything and want to reduce HDD requirements.
Kaffie commented on Blurhy's post: hierarchy
Kaffie commented on Chinchin's post: @Chinchin: Yes. When you post things, it gets published to a site, and so anyone who has that site will host that content. So if you delete all your stuff except your keys, then when you restart and visit the sites you previously did, you'll redownload the stuff people are hosting for you.
Kaffie commented on ssdifnskdjfnsdjk@zeroid.bit's post: Not possible. You *can* whitelist specific usernames as you would with zeroid, however there's nothing stopping people from changing their cert username to the whitelisted one. For example if you whitelist "kaffie@kaffie.bit", then anyone can go onto the kaffieid site, sign themselves a kaffie@kaffie.bit cert, and then use your site. Instead the proper way of doing things is to whitelist *auth-addresses,* regardless of the specific id provider.
Kaffie commented on Chinchin's post: Users.json is only your public/private key pairs. That's it. If you keep that and then revist/relogin to sites, they'll work as normal. Your old posts should still be kept if you actually published them (and other people have them which you redownloaded). The rest of the data folder is some other config stuff, and all of the sites you dl'd.
Kaffie commented on Kaffie's post: @Mg0: I've never done any mind altering substances, but it's interesting to hear that it sounds like "being high but in control". Since mind altering substances have been historically used to put people into particular spiritual states, which you can otherwise achieve with effort/practice (and the latter giving more control/focus).
Kaffie commented on Kaffie's post: @P2P: Nah that's too obnoxious to use.
Kaffie commented on P2P's post: If we could get an updated idname plugin that'd be awesome: https://github.com/geekless/ZeroNet/tree/IDName/plugins/IDName
Kaffie liked P2P's post
Kaffie commented on P2P's post: @Moor: Yeah just setup the python3 version and it works. Seems I missed quite a few updates? I'll have to read through the changelog.
Kaffie commented on P2P's post: Do I need to switch to the python3 version? I tried updated and it doesn't work. I checked zeroupdate.bit and it says I'm on the latest version.
Kaffie commented on Kaffie's post: @SSDifnskdjfnsdjk: Are you on mac? Homebrew is definitely good to have if you are. You can find the site [here.](https://brew.sh/) Alternatively you can set up cjdns with [macports.](https://www.macports.org/install.php) If you're opposed to both, I'm not sure how to set up cjdns on mac without them, sorry. If you're on another platform, there's other ways to install it.
Kaffie commented on Nicehat's post: Dead network. Most people are here on zerome, or posting on zerotalk.
Kaffie commented on Kid Courageous's post: That's adorable
Kaffie commented on Kaffie's post: @Mg0: I wouldn't ever harm someone. I'm nice haha. Even if I have bizarre views. @Kid Courageous: lurk moar @Styromaniac: As I said. In some ways my mind works faster/better. Like someone is giving me the answers to things. In others it's hard to intentionally call up and bring about what I mean to think about. For example if I intentionally try to remember or recall a fact about some history thing or some detail I learned a while back, it might be difficult. Something like "what's the capital of alaska?" would be hard. But other times I'll see/hear something and instantly I'm presented with many related concepts and ideas that are connected in a variety of ways. It's harder to put the connection thing into worse. So to use schizophrenia for example, I think about it, then I'm presented with ideas like schizophrenics having unique views, shamans/witches/etc. are on the fringe of society, there's wisepeople who have arcane special knowledge and perspectives, gods who were venerated as having special powers, jewish chosen people, hitler's aryan master race, hitler and himmler were into occultism and magic, jews/nonjews had a serpent bloodline theory, o- blood type, harvesting blood to use in "hospitals", regenerative harvesting found in sci-fi media, vampirism, etc. And the thread goes on and it's easy to pull up the connected ideas. At some points I have a unique "spiritual" state of mind where it's like I withdraw from the physical world and enter a trance where this sort of thinking becomes hyperfocused. Beliefs and ideas start popping out in a similar fashion. So I'll suddenly know deep secrets about the universe, such as how there's particular unknown figures controlling the half of the universe that I (and my half) don't control, or how there's boundaries we never reach due to how mathematical patterns of behaviors and actions influence events. I'll magically know things like how people have connected thoughts and operate as one meta egregore entity. I'm not in the "delusional" state right now, so it's a bit difficult for me to pull up an example. But hopefully that kinda clarifies it. Over time even my regular default state has been gaining these "abilities".
Kaffie started following Red Liberty
Kaffie commented on Port220irq5dma1's post: I'm pretty sure I'm the IRL mascot 🤣
Kaffie liked Tempo's post
Kaffie commented on Kaffie's post: @Mg0: If I'm not active it usually means that I'm either lurking and didn't say anything, or I haven't looked at ZN in a while. But I always have my client running when I'm on my laptop.
Kaffie commented on Zetanbali's post: @Zetanbali: Yes. You only need the users.json file. That will backup/restore your public/private keys, zeroid, etc.
Kaffie commented on Zetanbali's post: @Port220irq5dma1: Sorry it's a bit much. I'm someone who tends to be as clear/verbose as possible. And yeah once you stick around enough it all kinda clicks and becomes awesome. I've been wanting to make like a ZN tutorial series or something. Newb guide. To help educate people on ZN and how everything works.
Kaffie commented on Zetanbali's post: @Port220irq5dma1: Yes. Think of your zeronet "account" more like a collection of public-private key pairs stored on your own computer. You don't "login" to anything. Instead you just sign content with your private key. *Do* note, however, that your downloaded sites *won't* sync between machines (unless you manually do it or have a script to copy the stuff over). Likewise any mutes/blocks/etc. won't transfer either. If you register new ids none of those will transfer (though you can re-copy the users.json file, or visit the site with the same master seed key). But reading and posting will work simultaneously from as many machines as you'd like. Only the individual configurations won't sync, unless you have something syncing your files on your own. For example say you copy your users.json file to your phone, which also runs zeronet. Your phone can now post on using your existing zeroid, as can your desktop/laptop. But then if you go on your phone and register a KaffieID, that creates a new keypair on your phone, but that doesn't sync to your desktop/laptop. You can transfer it by hand again, and on your laptop/desktop if you have the same master seed (which you should if you followed the example), visiting the KaffieID site will generate the same public/private key pair for the site, and thus you can recreate the cert. If you visit a new site on the phone, the new site will not pop up on the desktop client. And vice versa. You can manually transfer these as well. Same for blocks, mutes, etc. ZeroNet *does* have a "multiuser" mode, password screen option (to prevent people from accessing your webportal). So that you can host ZN on your private server, set it into these two modes, and then login to your zn instance from many devices and have everything synced. This is similar to how zeronet proxy services work (they set up multiuser mode and then point the client portion outwards and allow people to use their node to log in). In this case the instance is a single node, so when you update that node, your info is updated across all devices.
Kaffie commented on Watteau's post: Underwhelmed because all the services are the same stuff? @Tumbleweed: Site owners can still delete your post. For instance, watteau selected moonhub, so the moonhub owner (likely nofish) can delete the post/ban the user/etc. In this case you commented on a moonhub post so your comment is also prone to that moderation. You yourself have selected redhub, which is where your direct posts are held. redhub is ran by nofish for sure and is one of the older hubs. You can get around this by making your own hub or going to one that lacks censorship. For independent sites, the only person who can delete posts is the site owner (ie your own personal blogs and such).
Kaffie commented on Newtons's post: @Montecarlo: The only problem is lack of content. Small community = not much to read/watch/look at/comment on. But ZN is just far superior to the clearnet.
Kaffie commented on Port220irq5dma1's post: I've been banned from twitter 3 times and am effectively permabanned. I own my own zerome hub so I can't be censored. Truly refreshing to be able to speak my mind without censorship.
Kaffie commented on zer0noob's post: Works for me on firefox. Reminder that you *can* write your own frontend for zerome if you wish to do so. There's an alternative ZeroMe client available called Sakana: http://127.0.0.1:43110/sakana.bit/
Kaffie commented on Ntp's post: Technically this is p2p web, not internet. A p2p internet is called a mesh network, which zeronet is compatible with.
Kaffie commented on Mg0's post: I love it so much. This place finally isn't a ghost town.
Kaffie commented on Zetanbali's post: The easiest way is to copy the entire data folder over to the new machine. But the bare minimum is the data/users.json file, which holds all of your private keys. You might want to transfer filters.json and mutes.json as well (which store what they say). Copying the entire ZN folder also works.
Kaffie commented on Styromaniac's post: Fork it and add it yourself :)
Kaffie commented on Garlicposting's post: @Jaoheah: Have you considered the solution to the CP problem isn't censorship, but instead proper medical treatment of those with disorders like pedophilia?
Kaffie commented on Bushmaster's post: The CP is in it's own space though. I haven't really seen any posted out in the open on public sites, which is nice. So it's easy to avoid.
Kaffie commented on Turtles11181's post: big.KopyKate.bit is the largest and most active video sharing site on ZN. There's also some site called "youtube" that mostly has porn vids if you're into that. Kxovid is technically superior since it's a hub system (something we desparately need in a video site).
Kaffie commented on Caropc6's post: >Does .bit mean a single point of failure? Yes. Like all blockchains, namecoin is prone to a centralization of invested wealthy parties, and a reliance on centralized internet infrastructure. Any system that guarantees name uniqueness suffers from this problem. For example if we turned zeroids into domains (which is actually a thing that has been done in the past). There's still a centralized manner of guaranteeing names are unique. Non-legible names (the raw addresses) are unique but lack legibility. This is a known problem of decentralization. The .bit fetching of names is done on your local machine, as it fetches it from the zeroname website (which has a centralized backend that updates from namecoin). You can configure zeronet to use a local instance of namecoin, if you prefer it. >if i promote my site by mentioning its .bit address and then will not renew the .bit name, people will fail to access my site and many will NOT even find the zite "internal"/real address ZN is currently configured so that if the namecoin domain expires, the registry still maintains the entry until someone else purchases the name and uses it for a new ZN site. This is happened to my network of sites. My domains expired and were immediately bought by others, but not ZN users, so the names still point to my site, but without my control. >From decentralization and distributed point of view it appear to me like it is better NOT to use .bit name and promote site with internal address like 127.0.0.1:43110/15psKMf7iWZNdos5iKNQRTwu31hXEM9gFi ? Yes, that's the ideal, though it's a bit inelegant. If someone visits your site through the .bit, its stored via the actual raw address. So if your name is compromised, you can just instruct your site to not rely on it, and users will still have your site accessible via the raw address. >If there are any work arounds? I appreaciate if you explain it. Thank You No. There's a plugin for ZN that allow you to use zeroid names as domain names. Since your zeroid is unique and tied to a particular address, you can make a DNS registry on that address to get subdomains. This avoids a centralized blockchain, but relies on a uniqueness-guaranteed ID provider (which in tern requires a centralized backend). Zooko's triangle. Look it up.
Kaffie commented on Ryker's post: @Realjohndoe: Smartphone support is in a weird place right now. I think it's *technically* supported, but a lot of websites aren't developed/designed for it.
Kaffie commented on Ryker's post: @Realjohndoe: Each user profile page shows a person's post history and the users they're following. There's also a bio section where you can write a bit about yourself. On the front page there's several kinds of feeds to look at (everyone, your followed users, etc.)
Kaffie commented on Lizardricon's post: @caryoscelus: Yup. Of course a lot of people are super cautious here. And it's generally bad manners to do such things without explicitly letting the person know. After all they use ZeroNet to *get away* from that sort of thing.
Kaffie commented on Numismatist's post: @SSDifnskdjfnsdjk: There's blocklists for spam. [Here's one I maintain.](http://127.0.0.1:43110/1CufK1ZtvekbFXEpSyKT2gDjf9jnqW8KwG/) Site owners can also manually remove spam (or do so by hand/having a centralized backend bot).
Kaffie commented on Ryker's post: It's basically twitter, yeah.
Kaffie commented on Lizardricon's post: I think it's gotten to the point where LGBT people don't actually want to call themselves LGBT to avoid the nonsense going on.
Kaffie commented on Lizardricon's post: You can use a php backend server in the same way you can normally: ajax calls to a regular centralized site. That's how ZeroID registration works (the ZN site makes a call to a centralized backend site, which then signs your cert). You can check the ZeroID source on how that works.
Kaffie commented on Blurhy's post: @blurHY: mutability is important for the web as well. but "file pinning" done manually is a large part of why file hosting is so unreliable on ipfs.
Kaffie commented on Styromaniac's post: @Styromaniac: I mean my comment was kinda serious. I'm seriously skeptical of the earth existing. Or anything physical for that matter.
Kaffie commented on Styromaniac's post: @Styromaniac: #NoEarthSociety
Kaffie commented on Styromaniac's post: I looked into it. It's basically nonsense.
Kaffie commented on Blurhy's post: IPFS won't take off until file hosting is as reliable as zeronet.
Kaffie commented on Styromaniac's post: ugh, hate people like that.
Kaffie commented on Caropc6's post: ZeroNet does authorization through a public-private key system. ID providers associate the public key with a username/site. Normally this relies on a centralized back-end server to guarantee username uniqueness. However with KaffieID I just have the site's key publicly on the site, so they can sign their cert themselves, allowing any name to be signed without guarantee of uniqueness. This gives it the benefit of being able to be used in an entirely decentralized manner. It's possible to simply have the same solution per-site, but that eliminates the convenience of a single address per user, along with makes it difficult to have consistency between sites. It also adds more work for site devs. Adding KaffieID support is identical to adding ZeroID support (and you can support both very easily). So it makes everything very convenient. KaffieID itself is cloneable as well, in case you want to use something else that's similar. Technically speaking, KaffieID is entirely unneeded if ZeroNet would allow creating and direct posting from auth-addresses without needing a cert provider. Things like bitcoin and other cryptocurrency do just that. But I think it's nice that it has a name attached as well. All in all it's meant as an easy system to give a fully decentralized ID provider to ZeroNet.
Kaffie commented on Kaffie's post: @Moor: Then he is inherently incorrect. There's no reason to read someone who denies what obviously exists. Any refutation will inherently have problems.
Kaffie commented on Kaffie's post: @Moor: The connection between the spiritual and physical is called the hard problem of consciousness, and is something scientists refuse to address.
Kaffie commented on Kaffie's post: @Moor: You can say p-zombies are silly and stupid, but the reality is that I've run into people who fit that category: ie lacking qualia. Modern science tends to be hylic-focused, and ignore the spiritual layers of reality entirely. Ironically, to pneumatics the exact opposite seems more accurate: that we can reject the "stupid" idea of there being a physical reality. Of course in reality the reason these ideas get pushed aside isn't due to inaccuracy or people not believing it, but instead as a part of a larger conspiracy to eliminate such ideas from the public consciousness so the actual larger agenda isn't discovered. After all, how can you promote the idea of "we are all the same" if there's clear differences? @Wry: I used to be secular/atheist/etc. myself, so I definitely get it. I struggled with the afterlife question and now it makes sense why I was struggling so much. I was struggling because I was starting from a spiritual starting point (the soul/mind) and trying to work out what it would be like when that stopped existing. The reality is, of course, that things don't work like that. Pneumatics never stop existing. I'm curious how you'd describe your structural ontology. IE you have your body, your brain inside that. and then.... what happens? Do you have an internal experience that's distinct from the brain? Do you even *have* a self? How does that work exactly?
Kaffie commented on Realjohndoe's post: @Realjohndoe: Saying "you are all the same" really shows you've bought into the MSM narrative. The reality is that there's three distinct groups getting lumped under the same label. 1. Literal fetishists like what you're talking about here. These people absolutely shouldn't be recognized as the opposite sex. Guy's a dude, no way around that. 2. People with gender identity disorder. These are still largely men trying to be women. And are sort of a grey area in terms of what we should do. This is the main group that gets lumped into "trans". They tend to overlap with the fetishists, though not all of them are. It's messy. 3. Lastly people like me, who are transsexual. IE the original disorder before it got appropriated and dragged through the mud. Basically we're very similar to intersex people in that we grew up as girls despite having male reproductive anatomy. These are corrected as a part of medical treatment. We're functionally asexual due to the nature of the disorder, and attracted to men, not women. So the Yaniv scenario literally *can't* happen with people like me. I actually agree on strict regulations/laws/etc. for legal sex. Traditionally here in california, us transsexuals had to have a doctor testify in court about our situation, the court would approve/deny, and we'd go on our way. Any history of crime, sexual assault, or weird medical history would result in a rejection. This, of course, was just scrapped for the "uwu you are what you say you are" model that groups 1+2 are pushing for to get into women's spaces. If being attracted to older men is pedophilia, I guess all women are pedophiles?
Kaffie commented on Realjohndoe's post: The state of LGBT stuff is so bad that most "LGBT" people aren't even gay or transsexual. The person in question isn't "homosexual", they're a heterosexual man. They aren't trans in the slightest either. Hell they don't even have gender identity disorder nor gender dysphoria. It's just someone exploiting they shitty political agenda/narrative to do shitty things that everyone expected. It's really sad to see people like that dragging the reputation of my medical disorder through the mud like that. Since actual transsexuals are nothing like that.
Kaffie commented on Styromaniac's post: @Styromaniac: Yeah I learned about that from experience haha. Seems all of my breaks happened at night. And yes, I'll be doing a lot of research into the various medications available. As for recreational drugs.... my therapist advised to stay away from it, and I have no plans of using any. I'm pretty strict when it comes to that stuff (no drinking, smoking, recreational drugs, etc.)
Kaffie commented on Styromaniac's post: @Styromaniac: The duration of my sleep is more than long enough, but the quality is arguably poor. I'm a deep sleeper, but lack any dreams, and wake up tired. I'm mostly nocturnal and end up staying up most of the night and sleeping most of the day.
Kaffie commented on Styromaniac's post: My therapy appts are usually every 2 weeks or so, sometimes every week. I need to schedule a psychiatrist+psychologist, have them check back with my therapist, and then possibly be good to go for antipsychotics or something else. I'm on california's medi-cal so prescriptions are free when I get them. The big roadblock right now for this isn't money, but scheduling and time.
Kaffie commented on Kaffie's post: @Caropc5: I went ahead and put both public certs on my spam list and banned them from my blog and kaffiehub. I was considering not doing it, since I didn't want to block public certs, but oh well. People can just make their own.
Kaffie commented on Kaffie's post: @Caropc5: :) I'm really glad people enjoy the things I've worked on. It's hard to work with any regularity so when I see things I've made get used/supported/liked that makes me happy haha. And yeah, I definitely feel decentralization is probably one of the most important technological revolutions of our time. It's not just zeronet either, but *everything.* We're slowly returning back to a nomadic species. We're getting things like solar power that lets us generate electricity at home, people are starting their own gardens (and hopefully moving away from centralized food providers). People are finally starting to resist capitalism. We're at a point where we can break free from the monopolistic rule/government.
Kaffie commented on Styromaniac's post: Doesn't seem that useful. Since you can very easily just create a new address.
Kaffie commented on Kaffie's post: @Styromaniac: Love me or hate me, they're still sharing my name. Fame is much more important than image in these situations. It's what lead trump to become president. People hated him, but kept sharing his name and what he did, but saying they hate him. And sure enough lots of people knew of him and he ended up winning. So if I've got a hate club that's kinda fascinating. It means I'm known well enough by enough people for them to have polarized views of me. Even better if it's the chinese government, IMO. Makes me want to live out of spite lmao.
Kaffie commented on Kaffie's post: @Moor: Thanks. And yeah hopefully things can get situated kinda soon and I can be on a path to recovery. @Realjohndoe: Ummm thanks? schizophrenia is kinda serious if that's what I've got. And I'm not sure meds are 100% effective for this kind of thing. @Styromaniac: I always wish I could trade places with people, as I'm not really fond of my current situation.
Kaffie commented on Kids 's post: RIP. I wonder if people actually managed to back up the stuff that was just taken offline. And if they can backup e-hentai while it's still up. Kinda a shame to watch the web die because people with money wish to censor others.
Kaffie commented on Styromaniac's post: Trans women are naturally seen as attractive by heterosexual men, but *also* have an increased attractiveness factor for men with GAMP (trans fetish). It's a give/take. Personally I haven't had any issues with dating men. I hear GID mtfs who try to date women have much worse luck though, both due to their greater difficulty in passing, but also because women are "harder to get" in general. Men are hoes lmao.
Kaffie commented on Styromaniac's post: nofish is surprisingly lenient on bans.
Kaffie commented on Kaffie's post: Been playing the ballet one a bit. Sounds like the girl who did the Haruhi dub is a voice actress in this game like wtf. It's pretty decent but I think I like princess debut a bit better.
Kaffie commented on Styromaniac's post: I've been starting to use ZeroMe as my primary social networking site. Which is why a lot of my posts are a lot more personal now. I think it's a good idea to use ZeroNet how you would use the regular clearnet, rather than using it in a special different way.
Kaffie commented on Kaffie's post: @Kids: There's a lot of MLP-based games. Not sure which you're referring to.
Kaffie commented on Kaffie's post: @6mqj1vz56h27km0b: This is entirely not the right place to ask that question. I don't work on kopykate, nor care to discuss your issue here. Go ask somewhere else. Thanks.
Kaffie commented on Kaffie's post: @FraYoshi: I went ahead and checked it out and.... I'm hooked. Sunk so many hours into it already. It's horribly addicting.
Kaffie commented on Kaffie's post: @Kids : DDLC I think counts. MLP is a tv show, not a game. @Mg0: Sure? To give some examples I mean things like Style Savvy, Animal Crossing, Stardew Valley, Princess Debut, Mystic Messenger, Long Live The Queen, The Sims, etc. Though in a more broad sense we could count stuff like Blossom Tales, A hat in time, etc. A lot of the more overtly girly/feminine ones as you note tend to be shovelware. Which is why I was hoping to find others with a similar interest and perhaps find some good games or a community or something. @Moor: The big problem is that most are for little kids (5 years old or w/e), and the rest are largely low-quality otomes on mobile. Part of what I wanted to try and do is curate a list of good games as well as try to list out genres and perhaps build a community. If y'all are interested in something like that definitely let me know as I've made a discord server for it. @Pexo: "Girl games" are games that have women/girls as the intended primary demographic, or that are made in a way to appeal to feminine interests rather than masculine ones. While there *is* overlap when you get to "gender neutral" type games (that are neither overtly masculine nor feminine), most of the industry sticks to a masculine approach (go ahead and count the number of AAA games that lack any sort of violence). It's a bit vague but becomes a lot clearer when you actually look at games. It's a sort of "you know it when you see it" thing. @FraYoshi: That definitely looks right along the lines of what I was asking. Thanks :3
Kaffie commented on Kaffie's post: @SSDifnskdjfnsdjk: Yeah I don't have any intentions on developing them further. My intent was to make sure the sites remain usable. Glad to hear it's working.
Kaffie commented on Kaffie's post: @klu9@zeroid.bit: For 1, I'm not sure. The only places people really talk here are on zerome or zerotalk. As for 2, refreshing the page should work. I had a similar issue, not sure why it happened. If you still have problems let me know. I've got no idea how to use nodejs so I may have messed something up.
Kaffie commented on Whitehat13's post: there's like a total of 3 girls on zeronet.
Kaffie commented on KxoBot's post: Wild west of the internet. Where dicks could be dicks, but you could also just not listen to them. And people who love science could embrace that, not be banned from twitter and thrown in prison.
Kaffie commented on Kaffie's post: @Pexo: Seems like just them. I have found a new therapist who takes medi-cal and I've got an appointment scheduled already.
Kaffie commented on leftside's post: @Anonymouslogin: The sites I reupped are merger sites. you're free to clone the client and run your own hub. The client can't touch the data, and my hub is only one of many. As for what data I allow on my hubs/sites, I pretty much only remove spam and CP. Though sometimes I may ban people who only have an intent to spread hate and cause problems, rather than use the platform legitimately (discussing things, sharing ideas, talking, etc) regardless of views. For instance, talking about your views which may be deemed homophobic or transphobic is fine, but intentionally harassing users calling them fags is not good. I generally make it clear what my own views are and how I moderate my sites. If you're uncomfortable with that there's no reason why you can't clone the sites I have uploaded (which I encourage people to do).
Kaffie commented on KxoBot's post: Spoken like someone who wasn't on the internet in the 80s and 90s.
Kaffie commented on leftside's post: @leftside: Either way I keep my critical sites cloneable. If you can't trust me, make copies of my sites. You can trust that :P
Kaffie commented on leftside's post: I feel like the only people you can really trust to not fucking lose it and do stupid shit like taking everything down is me and nofish. I'm mentally unstable but if I lost it I'd probably just vanish rather than burn my stuff.
Kaffie commented on KxoBot's post: No big loss. We've dealt with zite takedowns before.
Kaffie commented on KxoBot's post: There's nothing inherent about zeronet that "stops internet culture". In fact the whole point of ZN is to *preserve* internet culture. If you want censored feel-good pcland with only gov-approved views, then ZN is definitely not for you. ZN is a return to the wild-west style internet. And many of us fucking love it.
Kaffie commented on Kaffie's post: @Pexo: Things haven't been normal for a long time. I called the therapist/psych people and they said they don't take medi-cal so I'm basically fucked.
Kaffie commented on KxoBot's post: @KxoBot: umm wat
Kaffie commented on KxoBot's post: @KxoBot: No? People choose their views. If they see their views are clearly ridiculous, it incentivizes change. Criticizing the view is not criticizing the person.
Kaffie commented on Quantumworld's post: Just a heads up, vivaldi is based on chromium.
Kaffie commented on KxoBot's post: @KxoBot: >You made this comment because you wanted to be mean - period. No I made that comment because I very clearly saw someone pushing copyright and wanted to point out the futility of it. >Not because you wanted to have an actual conversation on the negatives and positives. You're right. I had 0 intent on discussing copyright. Just commenting on the idea of a copyright blocklist. >And your response to this is a very typical response for people who don't give a crap about what they say to other people and how they may hurt them. I care for people, not ideas. Bad ideas are bad ideas. But people all deserve support and respect. >Just because somethings ridiculous doesn't mean you have to be intentionally hurtful to other people. It didn't seem harmful to me. But this may be part of my mental health issues. I'm far from normal and struggle with social perceptions.
Kaffie commented on Kaffie's post: @Nekololi: The negative symptoms are the true killer tbh. They destroy any hope of a social life or doing anything of value. But yeah that doesn't sound good.
Kaffie commented on nekololi's post: Personally I'd rather censor my view than prevent people from using the platform to speak. And realistically feeds and forums need to be cleaned up *somehow.* Otherwise you get spam, trolls, people looking to cause problems, etc. Rather than actual legitimate discussion of things that might be controversial.
Kaffie commented on KxoBot's post: 🍿😂 I'm gonna conveniently ignore the rest of the post (and just watch aftermath) but clear up my own comments and address ones made to me. >"RJD calls homosexual and transgender people pedarasts, pretty much, but his vocabulary isn't that good. I use that as a blanket term for everything he accuses them of: child sexualization, rape and molestation." Being wrong isn't a crime. RJD is kinda dumb but you get all kinds of people on ZeroNet. Even literal pedos. People are gonna say what they're gonna say, that's kinda the nature of free speech. But to clear the air, despite my pedo-tolerance and desire for them to get mental health help, I'm not actually a pedo myself and ban CP on my sites. >"'I lol'd. copyright has no power here.' Kaffie to Me" Pretty sure this was a general comment I made. The comment field is for just that: comments. >"'As soon as you said healthcare for all, you lost me. Far left candidates are what is ruining America.' nickwa to Kaffie" People are free to disagree. Personally I love political debate. I used to be ancap, now I'm far left. It happens. >"'Scuttlebutt are sjws.' Kaffie. Of course, put everyone in a label so you can make it easier on yourself to attack and think lowly of them. Have you tried asking or considering their viewpoint? Probably not because they "are sjws", right?" They're literally from tumblr. They use tumblr sjw speak. They have pseudo-lgbt views that lead to transphobia despite claiming to be "allies". They're bread and butter sjws by definition, love it or hate it. Personally I can't stand it. Others may like the sjw mindset. And yes, I've had long discussions and debates with the scuttlebutt people, who have collectively decided they hate me lmao. Kinda the norm for sjws. >"omfg i'm laughing so hard. you think that all of the new incoming traffic is solely your doing? hahahahahahaha - Kaffie to Quantumworld." I'll let this one speak for itself lmao. The claim was that he was *solely* responsible for *all* new traffic. Kinda ridiculous and he ended up backpedaling afterwards. --- Side note: I'm surprised the Kaffiene-Bwoi drama didn't end up on the list.
Kaffie commented on Kaffie's post: @Nekololi: Thanks. Fortunately the positive symptoms are relatively minor at the moment. And besides my depression episodes I'm not going to harm myself or others. I'm aware of alternative possibilities for hallucinations and delusions. But my other symptoms match schizophrenia and the related disorders. Definitely plan to get things checked out if possible.
Kaffie commented on Styromaniac's post: I have no idea what accusations were made against me, I've been a bit afk from zeronet for the past few days. I'm guessing this was about the latest entry in my spamlist? The user in question was going around spamming on posts, with the content containing variations of "kill yourself" and other harmful things. I did not put them on the list due to disagreement nor of controversial opinions. It was completely and entirely due to the spam nature of the posts. That being said, had they not spammed, I'd have still banned from kaffiehub and put on my own blocklist. People are free to use or not use my spamlist, which is only for spam. Kaffiehub is my own personal site, and if you are uncomfortable with my moderation you can migrate elsewhere. Generally I allow pretty much any sort of commentary (including things that are normally quite disagreeable), provided it's not CP and not spam (my two personal limits). I always try to ensure that my network of sites are clean, without spam, and open forums of discussion. I'm no enemy of right-wingers, nor of left. As I find my views are a mix of both. Despite my own situation, slurs and hateful comments towards me *in the context of a conversation* are things I *won't* remove. Even if I personally find them upsetting. Free speech is something I hold very dearly, which is why I'm here on ZeroNet in the first place. But I won't tolerate spam, and I certainly won't tolerate spam written to drive harm to people. So TL;DR: Spam will get you put on my spamlist, regardless of the content of the spam. That's what the list is for. Spam and directly antagonistic/off-topic comments meant to antagonize and drive hate will likely be banned off my network of sites. That's my own personal choice as a site owner and it's a policy I make clear. Disagreeable opinions and views contradicting my own, and even hateful comments inside the context of a discussion are entirely allowed and something I *won't* remove. Opinions are something people are free to have, even if I find them hurtful or disagreeable. People should be free to have opinions and speak their mind. But if your purpose is to harm people and cause problems then kindly gtfo.
Kaffie commented on Kaffie's post: @Mg0: Women used their ovaries to produce estrogen. Hormone medication was invented in the 40s and has remained the same basically ever since.

Kaffie commented on Kaffie's post: @Pexo: Perhaps I see it differently because I'm a girl. But the current use of deepfakes is definitely disturbing, and is cause for concern. Just as any other nonconsensual sexual harassment/assault would be. And from a political angle is very severe when we consider that entire political speeches can be faked easily by anyone. There's not much "good" that seems to come from it, and it's definitely something that needs to be addressed. @caryoscelus: Exactly why it's a relevant issue for today. So much legitimately fake news (things that never happened, info that's factually incorrect, etc) is out there. @Lostfile: UBI has come close to passing several times in the past, and currently has bipartisan support. Yang having arguably the most bipartisan support out of the democrat candidates. Right wing people love his "neetbux" and focus on the job losses, along with his straight forward facts and focus on economic issues. Left wing people love that he's big on providing financial support to the people and is focusing on a lot of modern/future issues. @Anonimouslogin: We already see media opposition to Yang. But hopefully he'll make it :). If not Yang, then who? If not now, when?

Kaffie commented on Lostfile's post: Scuttlebutt are sjws. They're going to keep sabotaging themselves until their platform is useless. A shame too, because what they've got going on currently is pretty lovely. Generally speaking, as it's currently designed, you can use it without getting censored. Pubs can remove you and not share your posts, which is basically the main way of interacting on SSB right now. It's a confusing and not great system, and is why I've not really used it much. It's hard to understand quite what's going on, how to avoid the problems, etc. The whole thing feels very opaque, whereas zeronet is the opposite.
Kaffie commented on klu9@zeroid.bit's post: It's very exciting that you're taking the time to do this. Getting news onto zeronet is pretty important. It's critical to finally being able to get off of the clearnet and be 100% ZN.

Kaffie commented on Kaffie's post: @leftside: As soon as you said to stop my hormone medication that's when I stopped reading and listening. Sorry but these are drastically improving my mental health and I can't really imagine living without them. And I need them for physical health as well. As for the rest of your suggestions: Easier said than done. I'm not (and can't risk) going to prison. Sorry. I guarantee that it'll be worse than my current situation. Because I see how people like me are treated there. The fact you call manning "he" pretty much demonstrates my point. If a high profile case can't even get proper treatment, me a random no name certainly ain't gonna get it. Manning was continually denied medical treatment, put into the wrong prison, was falsely imprisoned, and treated horribly. No fucking thanks.
Kaffie commented on Kaffie's post: @ulrichard: Pretty sure they just passed a thing banning me from entering the military. @leftside: >I think she needs someone to turn off the light after 11PM and stop her using backlighted electric gadget after that time for at least 3 to 4 hours. Doesn't help. I've tried this before. The problem is that I wake up too late, and as a result go to sleep too late. >Her life style is like an uneducated beast. No, it's worse than that. Sleeping pattern is something to do later. But she needs to adjust her circadian rhythm first of all by light. Unless she follows the circadian rhythm, there's no treatment or medicine which can cure her. Wow gee thanks. Ultimately though to fix that I need to relocate and move somewhere I'm more free. >@Kaffie: Plz write down all ur detailed prescriptions here. And plz write down ur wakeup time, bed time, meal time, and what kind of ingredients u eat and how much. Prescriptions are just hormone medication as I said. Standard stuff. Estrogen, AAs, progesterone, etc. Wakeup and sleep times vary per day, no regularity. Wakeup is anywhere from 9am to 2pm, sleep is usually around 4-6am. I usually eat when I wake up, and then around 5-7pm, snack through the night. What I eat varies per day. I don't really have much flexibility because it's all group meals. >@Kaffie: please do not only look at the links, but also contact directly the staff behind the website. They are professional at helping people, they must know much better than us how to do in your situation. If you won't try, you can never know the results, right? I've tried contact people before. I never hear back. >As for charities, look for state-wide and country-wide charities ( in the link I provided ). Only lookiing at charities in your local area is very limited and not enough. I'm unable to travel that far. >Have you tried to contact Blue Systems or archive.org for job? Nope. >Please see a doctor. It was the best thing I did for myself. I've seen 2 psychiatrists, 2 therapists, 2 endocrinologists, a GP, and a neurologist. Usually I go to one of the therapists and my endo. Tomorrow I've got a neurologist appointment to get results from my MRI and EEG.
Kaffie commented on Kaffie's post: @Pexo: >That sucks, also I don't really know what to do in this case. You could try asking a lawyer if they were allowed to cancel that, while you're under active treatment. That's how the law works, yeah. It wasn't my parents who canceled. It was a natural ending and falling out of coverage of the laws set up to have it in the first place. >That's good, but judging from the rest of the thread thats still not much, try to get some more sleep. Speaking from experience, you do not make good decisions, while being tired. Can't. I'm out all day today. It's 1pm rn and I'm gonna be out for another 9 hours or so. >Do you still have the packages? See if you find anything that you are feeling right now on the side effects. It's not due to my hormones lmao. I've been on them for a long time now.
Kaffie commented on Kaffie's post: @Pexo: >There are a few e-mail providers that don't require a phone number. One really good one is tutanota, they are open source and have a (all be it somewhat short) history of protecting their users. I'll check it out I guess... Do you have something like this for a phone number? A lot of services require a phone number to use, alongside an email address. >Have you been given a reason for that? Because I turned 26 last month. So now I'm no longer covered under parents insurance. >Contact whoever is in charge of you there and tell them your situation/ask for a extension, Umm.... the US government which had previously passed obamacare? The thing that's getting repealed by trump? yeah calling them up is really going to solve that. >Also: How much sleep have you gotten today? I had just slept. Got a couple of hours (4). > Are you on any medication right now? Hormone prescriptions, which don't work that well. other than that nothing. I may end up on a b12 prescription soon. >Are you drunk? I don't drink, no.
Kaffie commented on Kaffie's post: @P2P: I looked at your links. Seems like none of those things are for someone like me. But thanks for trying?
Kaffie commented on Kaffie's post: @P2P: I'm already supposed to be on medi-cal (state healthcare) but they don't pay for anything and now i'm kinda freaking out cuz the healthcare that *was* covering things just ran out so now I'm kinda running on fumes there. I've been going to therapy but that hasn't really helped, and they don't take the state healthcare, so i'm not sure what i'm gonna do for that. As for charities, there's never any in my area that actually help. It's just either like soup kitches or w/e or homeless shelters where i'ts just a bunch of shit beds and ur shit gonna get stolen. All in all not good. What else are they gonna do?

Kaffie commented on Quantumworld's post: @leftside: Right so an improved solution is to use merger sites properly, with all users posting to all hubs, rather than having "home hubs". That way if one is taken down, it's not a huge deal. Similar to how if one torrenting site is taken down, it's not a huge deal. Regardless, you *can* have multiple signers for a site. Though I'm not sure it's been done before.
Kaffie commented on Quantumworld's post: @leftside: The best designed zeronet sites don't have a single owner. How will they take down and censor something like ZeroMe? Users could just create new hubs.
Kaffie commented on Quantumworld's post: Does it look like I give a shit about the law? I ain't going to censor my sites simply because authority wants me to. That's kinda the exact opposite of the goal here.

Kaffie commented on Kaffie's post: @leftside: That's what kills me haha. I'm young but it just feels like my youth is being wasted. @Styromaniac: Yeah I pass fine. I don't have an issue IRL with bigotry or hate or anything. No one bothers me and no one seems to get upset at my presence. I'm not too worried here in the US. But muslim countries I'm not so sure.
Kaffie commented on Kaffie's post: @leftside: I'm definitely working on a plan B. Most of my focus lately has been on trying to get employed somewhere and fix my issues asap. @Styromaniac: It's pretty ridiculous here. Most people in my area (a rural/poor/conservative town) seem to be getting along fine, but there's not really any chance for being anything but minimum wage. In other parts of california there's usually a huge wealth gap. Those who can do well (managers, comp sci, doctors, etc) are fine and usually pretty well off, while those who can't are pretty much poor af. The big problem here is housing costs. Rent is very expensive, as is buying a house. And even more expensive if you plan on living in a city. Though I'm much more thankful to be poor here in california than in some conservative state. If only I was in a city as well.
Kaffie commented on Kaffie's post: @Skeleton221: My name was originally mispelled when I was born, and due to my transsexualism my sex is also incorrect and needed to be updated. My height and weight were from when I was younger, and also needed to be updated. Technically my hair color changed as well, but I figured I'd leave it as it was haha. My name updated fine, and same with my pic (thankful because my old pic sucked). But the rest of the info is still incorrect.
Kaffie commented on Kaffie's post: @leftside: I *have* an id. It's just incorrect information. Namely I had gone in to correct my name and sex (both were initially listed incorrectly), and so far my name has been corrected but not my sex (which still reads male). On california IDs they also have height and weight which are also incorrect (and I figured I should get them corrected as well). As it stands most of the information on my ID is incorrect as of now. It's just frustrating.
Kaffie commented on Kaffie's post: @Styromaniac: Just don't overburden yourself for me. I really appreciate it though :3 That's why I set up the patreon, hopefully to get an income specifically for work on zeronet stuff. I think it'd be amazing to be funded through patreon (or I suppose bitcoin donations) and be able to live on that income while just working on zeronet and p2p tech. That'd be a dream come true :D
Kaffie commented on Deliriumgoddess6's post: @Realjohndoe: I'm laughing so hard. I can confirm that I'm not religiously jewish. My beliefs are more in line with gnosticism. Racially my family is german/sicilian. Sicilians being genetically similar to ashkenazi jews, who generally have a similar descent. As for my comments on the linked post... I like to think that I just have common sense. As for my response to the post here, I made a response elsewhere that someone had posted the same thing. I'm not a jew no worries :P
Kaffie commented on ssdifnskdjfnsdjk@zeroid.bit's post: Same as usual. I've been getting an itch to make something new for zeronet but I haven't had much time lately for it.
Kaffie commented on Kaffie's post: @Styromaniac: Unfortunately there's not really a clear "goal" other than "have a sustainable income that I can live on". Generally that means solving my health issues, moving somewhere else, and getting employed (even if that employment is just zeronet fans funding my work). @leftside: It's not so much the *amount* that's the problem. In my current situation I only need a small amount ($30/month meds, though that might end up going up next month, $100-500 medical tests/visits/etc. usually about once a month or so) and then whatever I'm living on (which I eat and have a place to sleep for free at the moment due to friends+family though I've overstayed my welcome). Moving elsewhere it's hard to say until I know the living costs. Usually I think it's about $1k-1.5k/month? Something like that? I do need to undergo a $30k surgery which may or may not be covered by healthcare, sometime in the future (ideally sooner, but it's not a pressing or time-sensitive issue). And have about $24-30k in student loan debt. I don't expect y'all to fund either of those, but I'm sharing for transparency. $100,000 would be more than enough to cover the debt, the surgery, and still have enough for long-term medical treatments. Or perhaps some years of living elsewhere and funding treatments for my current issues. I'd definitely be amazed if that much came to me. Either way, the issue is *regular/stable income* not the *amount* of money.
Kaffie commented on Kaffie's post: @leftside: Incorrect information on my ID (can't drive, so no DL).
Kaffie commented on Styromaniac's post: I just want to clarify that I don't have any *life-threatening* illnesses. I do have a place to stay currently (though it's far from ideal) but not really a solution long-term. In terms of healthcare, as it stands I have regular medication I take which I'm a bit worried about (though I have enough to keep me going for now), and the more expensive aspect of doctor visits/tests/etc. Generally speaking, as mentioned I have issues which make it difficult to work, and they're currently undiagnosed (no idea what's wrong). Which generally makes it difficult to actually earn an income and be able to see better doctors. I certainly hope I don't have a life-threatening issue, and hopefully I'll find out more when I see my neurologist again. I don't think it's the case. My current healthcare is about to expire at the end of this month (just a few more days) and I'm hoping that medi-cal (state healthcare) will cover things, but I've been struggling to get the "authorization" for the meds/treatments/etc. The tl;dr is: my work with zeronet is being delayed due to undiagnosed/unknown brain problems, along with a lack of funding for diagnosis/treatment/a stable living environment. Finding work is a priority over my ZN stuff unfortunately (as much as I'd just love to work on ZN full time). So that's my situation, hopefully it clarifies what's going on. No need to rush at the moment, but I definitely need to figure out a long-term solution. Thanks for all the support <3 Edit: See my latest status about bitcoin. I can accept it though I'm not quite sure how to use it on the things I need atm.
Kaffie commented on Kaffie's post: I'd like to thank everyone who has sent some money. I really appreciate it :)
Kaffie commented on Realjohndoe's post: @Realjohndoe: ummm you're kinda dumb lmfao. Though I'm curious: do you have an issue with their religion (judaism)? Or the race itself (levantine/phoenician/canaanite descent)? Because honestly it just looks like you are blindly hating jewish people without really even thinking through why you hold the views you do, and just mostly have a lot of biased views; many of which aren't true for a lot of people. Not all jewish people are zionists. Not all jewish people are greedy or bankers. Not all racially jewish people believe judaism and some are even christian. As for the "nasi/nazi" thing, that's the stupidest shit I've ever heard. Nazi is short for national socialist; aka fascism. "nasi" and "fascism" don't share an etymological root. Nor do nasi and national socialism. They don't even hold the same views. Nazis are *opposed* to jews and southern europeans in general. Nasi would be jewish people, who are naturally supportive of jews. Literally complete opposites.
Kaffie commented on Kaffie's post: @Pexo: >O.o You should report those. How many have you tried? How many suicide hotlines do you think there actually are? There's one. A single one. I've tried others that are more specific to my issues, but unfortunately the same result occurs. Who would I go to in order to report it? >Do you have any notable skills that you could use to find employment, even if unconventional? I've got a CS degree so... basically what you see me do here on ZeroNet. All my other interests I can't imagine being employed for (mostly I like digging into occult/religious stuff, and general games/anime/manga interests). I think archiving stuff and digitizing them would be cool, but afaik people don't really hire for that kind of thing. >(Like doing tech support for small stores in your area) There's no small stores in my area. It's all corporate chains. >Have you tried doing some long term freelance work(as programmer)? Eh yeah that's what I've been trying. But unfortunately my work ethic and habits are so poor that the person loses interest before I finish. Pretty sure that genesis game I was working on is probably forgotten by now. Guy literally forgot I was working on it rip. deadline is up anyway so that was a waste of 6 months Dx. Ultimately haven't really managed much from freelancing. >If you don't mind me asking, but what exactly is your mental situation? (If you even know that, since judging from your comment on @60: s post, you don't really know, yet) Basically I end up getting mutism and paralysis from time to time. And it's difficult for me to actually initiate tasks and start working on things. I also get the regular issues of depression, anxiety, that sort of thing. I also see doctors for transsexualism, which has probably contributed to depression (meds don't work right. fun.)

Kaffie commented on Krixano's post: @Krixano: The can select the tiers, and then put in a custom amount if they want. For instance they can select a $5 tier and then pay $7 instead.
Kaffie commented on 60's post: @styromaniac@zeroid.bit: I'm an anarchist if that helps clarify. As it stands for 2020 I'm looking at bernie or yang. Only thing I don't like about yang is his views on the whole ministry of truth thing. @60: The neurologist wasn't very clear but on the form he just wrote "seizures". I don't get any grand mal style seizures though I've speculated about the possibility of temporal lobe epilepsy or some sort of brain damage. I do suffer from what appear to be neurological issues. I certainly hope that it's not cancer. I can't imagine it is. Hard to say though without seeing the results. My guess is some sort of damage or developmental problem. Symptoms include mutism and paralysis, memory loss, executive functioning issues. Not fun stuff. My brain is pretty clearly messed up but it's hard to tell what the cause is just yet.
Kaffie commented on leftside's post: @styromaniac@zeroid.bit: That would be amazing. I don't have a paypal I can share yet, as they require some legal stuff I don't have situated yet (and haven't managed to get situated despite several visits to the DMV). AFAIK patreon takes paypal. I'm not sure if you can do a 1-time payment with that.
Kaffie commented on 60's post: @styromaniac@zeroid.bit: Believe it or not I'm actually far left. MRI and EEG are two different brain scanning technologies to help diagnose neurological issues.
Kaffie commented on 60's post: @Tommykakashi: There's an extreme wealth inequality here. Some people are very wealthy, while others are very poor. And we don't have socialized services like healthcare, so things can get expensive.
Kaffie commented on Kaffie's post: @ulrichard: I'm guessing it works based on a number of people reporting you, and then determining that there's certain keywords along with a certain number of reports then autobanning. Which is fine if twitter had literally *any* support teams. If you try to contact them, their phone number doesn't take calls, their email redirects you to a form, and the form only gives automated responses. There's literally no way to contact a real human responsible for moderation. People have realized this and have taken to "raiding" in order to have people removed from twitter. It's absolutely absurd.
Kaffie commented on Kaffie's post: As an example, one time I was suspended from twitter for mentioning how long I've been on medication; because someone had asked me.
Kaffie commented on Kaffie's post: @ulrichard: The only significant difference is that I went more into detail about my medical situation. Each time I was banned from twitter, it was due to me clarifying certain details about my diagnosed medical disorder. Apparently clarifying my medical situation is "hate speech". When I asked twitter for clarification, I got nothing in response. As of now, they still have not responded to my questions relating to my bans, have not clarified whether they do indeed see my diagnosed medical disorder as "hate speech", etc. I also detailed a bit more about my religious views on twitter, but those were not the cause of my problems. At least, I was never notified if they were. Though my religious views have gotten me banned from a variety of discord servers and subreddits. As you may be familiar with here, I'm never hateful nor derogatory in my posts and comments. And I always try to be civil and engage fairly with people. And I certainly don't hate anyone. For twitter it seems that they're upset that my medical disorders are medically recognized as medical disorders. Which is absolutely silly. Because what they are trying to push is very discriminatory, bigoted, and hateful towards people with my condition. And then they ban me when I clarify? Needless to say I don't have a positive view of twitter.
Kaffie commented on leftside's post: People talk a big game but then never follow through. Even I'm guilty for that. It is what it is. I don't really expect anything. People expect results, and unfortunately I struggle to provide any. And the zeronet crowd isn't really the most eager to participate in patreon or use clearnet services. I really wish I had an answer on how to fix my functioning. 100s of ideas I'd like to work on, a dozen half-finished projects, and 0 work being done lately. Docs are clueless about the cause of my issues unfortunately. I honestly feel like it's some fucked up mixture of mental illness, bad habits, bad environment, and a fucked up addiction to consumerism. But thanks for any help you can provide.
Kaffie commented on Kaffie's post: @Pexo: >but just know, that there are people who value you, people that will miss you. No one is truly alone! cute, but untrue. >Do you have anyone to talk to? It's likely that they can help you! Not really. I seem to be good at making people hate me for whatever reason. >Maybe a family member of a friend(or the other way around) can have a word with their boss and get you a place to work and earn money. The family and friends who are in a position to even remotely do so have already "put in a good word" and still nothing has resulted. Turns out that referrals don't actually lead to people being hired. >Don't shy away from help, out of fear, that you would be a burden for those willing helping you. I don't. But that doesn't stop the guilt. >If you feel alone and helpless, go find people you can talk to and open up about this. I've tried. They just refer to suicide hotline lines which then promptly tell me to kill myself. Fun stuff. >Seek people who are in similar situations than you! I've done this as well. It's honestly just depressing and makes the whole affair worse. > I know this is easier said then done, but isolation will really hurt you, especially if you're in a mentally difficult place! Physical isolation there's really no choice here. Not without a large regular source of money. Digital isolation is done because I'm seemingly banned from literally everywhere. There's a reason I post here on zeronet on my own hub and own sites where I'm not restricted, muted, or censored. I spoke out on twitter and got banned. I joined support discord servers and get banned. I join support subreddits and get banned. Perhaps stop isolating people? >or consider calling/contacting a suicide hotline most of those actually have ways to help you. They don't, actually. They literally can't help whatsoever. The only "help" they can provide is literally just sending police who are untrained in dealing with mental health issues straight to your door where there's a good chance that you'd be killed, and likely will go to a mental hospital in which freedom is taken away. No thanks. Turns out they can't help fix the issues; only make them worse.
Kaffie commented on 60's post: Just confirming some stuff. The link in the OP is indeed my patreon account. Please feel free to support. The bitcoin address listed on my homepage is indeed mine, and I should still have access to it. Though I'm not really an avid user of bitcoin, but still have my wallet stored. I don't have much use for bitcoin unfortunately (can't spend it anywhere, and converting it to cash is kinda a pain). @Tommykakashi: It seems people are mostly sharing these due to my financial struggles. Namely that I'm unemployed and without any sort of income, but continual medical fees and expenses (all of which I promptly ignore). So my debt has just been going up. I get enough to cover the medication which is good, and my bf helps lot there. So I'm not worried to much about that right now, though I do need a better solution than relying on donations. Longer term I don't really have my own place (staying with others), which can be a struggle since I'm stuck in a rural area and can't really get out much. I struggle with quite a few mental health issues, some of which may be neurological. I have undergone both an eeg and an mri, neither of which I can afford (so I'll dodge the bills yet again). I'll be getting the results to those next month. I imagine most of these posts were triggered by my last status. Which honestly I'm not sure if a few small donations will really change that larger situation. And even then I still have metaphysical/spiritual/religious issues, and just a general growing discontentment for humanity and society in general.

Kaffie commented on Kaffie's post: i miss the days i was in school where i knew what the future held for me.
Kaffie commented on Kaffie's post: honestly the doubt, worry, and uncertainty is what gets to me. i've been poor my whole life but the combo of being uncertain of the future, while simultaneously feeling eternally stuck is what drives me mad.
Kaffie commented on Kaffie's post: @P2P: I'll look into it. @Styromaniac: That's the thing with donations. It just feels like guilt. And I'm not entirely sure just having more money will solve all of my problems. Will it help with my medical situation? Who knows? Maybe if I get out and manage to move somewhere else with better doctors? More money won't really help things like my social situation or relationship. Nor will it really change society at large. I'll text you later today if that's alright.
Kaffie commented on Kaffie's post: Thanks everyone. I'm not really sure a little bit of money can fix my problems. Though a large regular supply (say, a regular income) would certainly help a lot. My current meds help a lot. It's just.... feeling stuck. And mostly stuck with uncertainty. The meds aren't quite doing what they need to. Things aren't at all going as planned. Then there's the social issues and relationship issues. It's all horribly demotivating. It's just becoming very clear that there's not really anything I can do to fix pretty much any of my personal problems, nor the problems I see with society at large (thanks for complimenting my ideas :3). I hate to be narcissistic but the problem largely isn't with myself, though my medical problems are things that appear unfixable and give me problems. But rather with society and my place within it. Along with my inability to really get myself out of this pseudoprison of poverty. Now more than ever I understand what prisoners go through mentally, and has reaffirmed my views that such a thing is incredibly harmful to the psyche. For those concerned, I likely won't be killing myself any time soon, despite my thoughts of it. Namely this is due to a lack of a way to do so, but also a bit of my own cowardice. My continual failures have made me realize that a DIY approach to suicide will also likely end in failure, making my already miserable existence worse than it already is. For those of you who wish to help financially, I *do* have a patreon account. And if y'all have any other ideas I can do those as well. Thanks for all the support.

Kaffie commented on Googleceo's post: @ulrichard: It's exactly the same issues as if you regularly torrented. Namely that copyright holders can watch the torrent to look for downloaders or seeders, and then send mass copyright infringement notices to the IPs they see. A VPN gets around it fairly easily. Or just have an ISP that doesn't give a fuck. The benefit of getting the magnet links on zeronet is that the site hosting the links won't ever be taken down (similar to how piratebay is often taken down).

Kaffie commented on Quantumworld's post: @Quantumworld: [Here](http://127.0.0.1:43110/0hub.bit/) is a good list. Hard to say what the most popular are. Probably redhub and bluehub which were the originals that everyone had joined. Though that's been changing, so perhaps not with the most active users. Definitely get kaffiehub if you haven't.
Kaffie commented on Quantumworld's post: @SSDifnskdjfnsdjk: Generally speaking, the ZeroMe method of using hubs is *inefficient*. It's bad because it largely locks you into a single hub, which kind of defeats the purpose. Other merger styles (zerolstn, kxovid, zeroexchange, IFS) are much better in that they don't designate a "home hub" for you. And as a result you can post on all of the hubs equally. Eliminating the need to "migrate".

I'm aware the chinese people themselves are just like anyone else, which is great to hear. But it's hard to tell where the chinese government stands in all of this. We know the US gov is very anti-china. But what about the other side? @klu9@zeroid.bit: Ah. So it's not anything sophisticated, just a lot of low-paid people. Still seems odd that that's how they'd go about it.

ZeroNet is pretty much the only place I can expect chinese people to be able to speak freely, which is why I posted here. Though I'm aware users here will likely have an anti-china sentiment. @Lola: Pretty much. The problem is that it's clear there's competency, but also total incompetency. Hard to wrap my head around. Shadow gov is crazy. @weakish: There was a wonderful talk on facial recognition posted earlier (check kopykate). And yeah, the common scene that's shown for china is this advanced tracking system, but in the kopykate vid we can see that in reality it appears to mostly be basic vision AI stuff that we have here in the west. Can still be an incredibly powerful tool, but not nearly what western media makes it out to be. @Quantumworld: Yup. I usually try to fact check. But large political things are a bit difficult since both sides want to show you they're right. The trick is trying to figure out which, if any, is the truth.

Kaffie commented on Sans3's post: @Sans3: The TL;DR is: To see status posts (direct things that show up in feed): Download the hub the user is in. To see comments: Download the hub of the post that the comments are in response to.
Kaffie commented on Sans3's post: @SSDifnskdjfnsdjk: There's two ways zeronet will download sun hub and it's content. 1. You visit a sunhub user's zerome profile, and there's a button to click to download it. 2. You visit the sunhub zite directly and it'll download like any other zite. Each zerome hub contains: user profiles+posts+followed users (the stuff you see when you visit someone's profile), and then the comments on posts that were posted to that hub. So for instance if you check the ~~sunhub~~ *moonhub* folder you'll see all of these comments are in there. That way people only need ~~sunhub~~ *moonhub* to see the entire conversation here, rather than needing several different hubs. Edit: These comments and that post are posted to *moon hub* as sans' profile is on moonhub. The same applies for any hub though.
Kaffie commented on Sans3's post: @SSDifnskdjfnsdjk: Comments to a post appear on the same hub as the post is on. Given sans3 is on moon hub your comment was posted to moon hub.

You umm... do realize that there's no way to make money on zeronet, right? bitcoin donations, maybe. But other than that not really anything. We don't even have stores or subscription services on here. >But even they're more for free speech and open Republic on a fundamental level when compared to SocJus Socialist/Communist/Anarcs who think hate speech is a thing that should be banned but refuse to define it because definitions are tools of the patriarchy to limit their emotional spewing into the neither reaches of the universe. ummm the opposite, hun. Right-wing conservative countries like syria, saudi arabia, malaysia, etc. crack down on freedom of speech, and are highly censored. China and Russia are good examples as well (both having highly censored internets, and being highly capitalistic and authoritarian). Anarchists are the breed you find here on zeronet and other decentralized platforms. We're against copyright (which is capitalist censorship), money in general, private property, government, etc. All rightwing ideals. We're also against communists and socialists who you won't find here at all because they can't have control. Which is also why you don't find capitalists here, nor rightwing authoritarians. Turns out you can't prevent people from copying your book/movie/tv show/music/etc if the technology is free and open. >where they'll force one side to slow down for the rainbow-haired gimp who couldn't compete otherwise, Where is "competition"? It just doesn't exist in today's society unless you force it to exist. So in anarchist groups there's no such thing. Which is why everything is collaborative.

Kaffie commented on nxo's post: The direct KaffieHub page was me scraping some of nofish's css stuff. For the ZeroMe frontend site (me.zeronetwork.bit) that's solely developed by nofish. If you're using sakana, it's someone else. I *did* at one point slap my branding on a clone of the zerome frontend. But the upkeep was too much for me at how fast the zerome development was going, so I stopped it. Generally speaking, if you're on ZeroMe you're likely using Nofish's frontend for it, or some spin-off clone.

Kaffie commented on Kaffie's post: @nxo: You can block/mute people on it.

Kaffie commented on Styromaniac's post: @Styromaniac: Feel free to tag me at any time. Team common sense!
Kaffie commented on Styromaniac's post: @Styromaniac: Except that's not how privilege is used. People claim it's some magic benefit, rather than being a normal life without X-type of harassment. I'd say the wealthy folk in the article have privilege. Sure, they experience racism, but to say that I'm somehow more privileged is ridiculous. The only *true* privilege is that of wealth.
Kaffie commented on Styromaniac's post: @Styromaniac: How is that trans? I transitioned after all of that mess. I didn't transition in school whatsoever. So the discrimination towards my sex was due to me being male, not female. Not trans. In terms of the trans stuff, the worst I got was being called a faggot, shunned pretty much entirely by almost everyone. That's about it. I've gotten both misandry when I was male, and now misogyny that I'm female. >But white privilege does happen. These may be terrible examples from the article. It sounds a whole lot like "white privilege" is just being normal. Or rather, being wealthy. >My half Mexican niece being "randomly" searched at the airport, I see racial bias. Not being "randomly selected" isn't privilege. It's racism towards minorities, sure. But that isn't some sort of benefit to me. To pretend it is is absurd. Racism exists, but I don't magically get any sort of benefit due to that. >My own grandmother was initially unapproving of my sister's Mexican husband. This is pretty much expected in my family. I came out to my grandma. A bit later I got a transphobic phonecall by my uncle. Wonderful, ain't it? I hear racist remarks towards asians in my house all the time. My bf is asian. My family was transphobic before I came out. Having grandma not approve is honestly not a huge deal. I've learned to not really listen to my grandma. If I did, I wouldn't be receiving medical treatment right now. >I've seen on the local news a toddler black boy being shot by a cop point blank for holding a stick. Happens to pretty much everyone but wealthy white men. Ultimately, none of these things are a "benefit" or "privilege". But rather just plain old racism. To deny racism exists is silly. but to say it's the fault of people like myself who just have our own struggles and don't say a bad word to these people at all is just silly. Name one thing that *I* have *benefitted* from. Not things that have caused problems for others. A lack of problems is the norm. Constant problems is *not* the norm. Lacking problems isn't privilege, it's what the standard should be.
Kaffie commented on Styromaniac's post: The amount of privilege in that article is insane. So let me, a poor white girl with some medical disorders, share my experiences and response. > the white privilege in this situation is being able to move into a “nice” neighborhood and be accepted not harassed, made to feel unwelcome, or prone to acts of vandalism and hostility. A pool in the backyard sounds fucking grand. Nice neighborhood? Fucking wonderful. Wish I had that. Instead I live in a rural area, with dirt, and had my house broken into by my ghetto black neighbors. I *wish* rocks thrown into the backyard were the least of my worries. If I move into an upper class area, I must worry about transphobia and other similar hate. Yet I'm privileged? >is if you’ve never had a defining moment in your childhood or your life where you realize your skin color alone makes other people hate you, you have white privilege. > if you’ve never been ‘the only one’ of your race in a class, at a party, on a job, etc. and/or it’s been pointed out in a “playful” fashion by the authority figure in said situation, you have white privilege. Most of my classes were mexicans, black kids, and asians. I've had every aspect of me pointed out and mocked. Posts like these end up hating me because of my skin color. I was denied scholarships due to my skin color and sex. Yet, I'm privileged? > if you’ve never been on the receiving end of the assumption that when you’ve achieved something it’s only because it was taken away from a white person who “deserved it,” you have white privilege. See above. I'm someone who worked hard. Graduated early. Perfect grades (above perfect). Yet I was denied scholarships because of my skin color, my sex, and my age. I did not get valedictorian because I had "overachieved". My middle school closed down after I left it, due to lack of funds. I had won every trophy for academic achievement. But I was denied many of them due to my sex. Yet in that school my grades were unfairly lowered because of my disabilities and sex. Yet I'm privileged? >if no one has ever questioned your intellectual capabilities or attendance at an elite institution based solely on your skin color, you have white privilege. My university I went to is mostly asian. My skin color was pointed out constantly, and people were often in surprise. People didn't believe where I came from. They thought I was too young. I did, however, have to constantly petition for classes because they believed I couldn't handle the work. Not due to my skin color, but due to my age. Yet I have privilege? Have you ever had to petition to take a class because they thought you weren't smart enough? >if you have never experienced or considered how damaging it is/was/could be to grow up without myriad role models and images in school that reflect you in your required reading material or in the mainstream media, you have white privilege. I have no role models who are like me. Not one. I can't even find regular folks with the same disorders I have. Yet I have privilege? > if you’ve never been blindsided when you are just trying to enjoy a meal by a well-paid faculty member’s patronizing and racist assumptions about how grateful black people must feel to be in their presence, you have white privilege. I've gotten remarks like these often due to my age, sex, disorders, etc. I get panic attacks at restaurants due to the comments people make when I eat. Yet I'm privileged? I'd kill to go eat dinner with some hoity toity harvard folk. > if you’ve never been on the receiving end of a boss’s prejudiced, uninformed “how dare she question my ideas” badmouthing based on solely on his ego and your race, you have white privilege. This one really irks me. Like holy shit imagine being so privileged people actually hire you, rather than say you aren't a good "cultural fit". Yet I'm privileged? > if you’ve never had to mask the fruits of your success with a floppy-eared, stuffed bunny rabbit so you won’t get harassed by the cops on the way home from your gainful employment (or never had a first date start this way), you have white privilege. Imagine having a luxury car and a nice job to afford it. I struggle to get employed, and I can't manage to pay my medical bills. Yet I'm the privileged one and he lacks privilege? I'd kill to have my biggest problem be "I need to buy a stuffed bunny so I don't get stopped by police". Like please, trade places with me. >if you’ve never had to rewrite stories and headlines or swap photos while being trolled by racists when all you’re trying to do on a daily basis is promote positivity and share stories of hope and achievement and justice, you have white privilege. I get this a lot. Problems with my skin color, with my sex, with my age, with my medical disorders, etc. Yet I'm privileged? Again, having a job sounds awful nice. So tell me, you honestly think my place in life is "privileged"? I worked my ass off to get where I'm at, and have constantly faced struggles and people intentionally trying to set me back because they don't like the way I look, or the way my body is, or the medical problems I have. They don't like that I'm an overachiever. But tell me again how a rich black man in a luxury car with a nice job that pays well is somehow worse off than me. I'll wait and listen. Because that's what people like me are expected to do. Shut up, be quiet, and just accept my place and quietly struggle while I let others take the spotlight and get the fame and pity. That's "privilege". Everything mentioned in that list are things I'd *love* to have. And yet you're complaining about them? Are you fucking kidding me? Talk about privileged. Imagine complaining about being wealthy. So without further ado, here's all I have to say to you people: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mGrufrND1m0 Sincerely, A "privileged" person who has had lifelong struggles.

Kaffie commented on Kaffie's post: @Quantumworld: Of course none of this is *concrete* and it's nothing you can arrest someone for. But come the fuck on. And yeah, a lot of this evidence they tried super hard to cover up. They deleted them all off the instagram page, they banned any reddit discussion relating to it all, they put out so much propaganda and outright lies about it. They attacked various archive services. Etc. The severe reaction, along with the highly suspicious posts that are more characteristic of a pedo ring than a family pizza shop, are what make me believe it. Do I believe *all* the claims? Of course not. That'd be silly. But to say there's nothing suspicious is ridiculous. All that being said, this was after a few minutes of research. Imagine if I actually put an effort into it. It's pretty clear that pedo stuff is going on. The evidence just keeps adding up. Keep in mind that the pizza places in question both had pedophilic logos that were changed immediately upon questioning and then they denied they ever did. Why deny literal facts? And the fact that it constantly gets hated on by the MSM is really telling. Just as we saw with JFK and 9/11.
Kaffie commented on Kaffie's post: @Quantumworld: See my comment [here.](http://127.0.0.1:43110/1Gtubs5zzkhkVAxiEyZuYTJMWSpJ1qY22s/?Post:18#Comments) I posted what I believe are the most damning pieces of evidence, excluding ofc the pedo symbol company logos (which leftside seems to think look like aol for some reason? blind?). You tell me what you think of this "family friendly restaurant" that frequently does thousands of dollars of business with politicians. I mostly stuck to official comet pizza posts, but the surrounding shit gets even creepier.
Kaffie commented on Kaffie's post: @leftside: See my response on your blog. I went ahead and did your research for you because apparently you aren't skeptical nor freethinking at all and need stuff spoonfed to you. Will literal photos of children for sale on the comet pizza instagram page be enough for you? Or will you still deny it?
Kaffie commented on Kaffie's post: @leftside: Why the opposition? Because the main accusations were against democrats? Republicans are pedos too. It's [pretty obvious](https://web.archive.org/web/20180505160157/https://radcliffefoundation.org/wp-content/uploads/2016/08/IMG_1764.jpg) that various organizations used pedo iconography and have since removed it. Why lie? The pizza places in question were known for posting pics of children with price tags and sexual comments, along with pornographic imagery. Why lie about this? What motive to you have to protect them? I'll reserve the moral debate of pedophilia for another day. As usual, I seek the truth, and to share it without censorship. Whatever that truth may be.
Kaffie commented on Kaffie's post: @leftside: @Quantumworld: Y'all are both hilarious. I'm curious which one you think is the bullshit and which is real? JFK has already been officially confirmed real, but people keep denying it. 9/11 and Pizzagate have more than enough evidence tbh. As for the russians and trump.... all politicians are crooks. It's dumb to play sides when they all suck.
Kaffie commented on Kaffie's post: @Styromaniac: Yup. It's honestly a little shocking at how violently they reacted to pizzagate when it happened. And are still adamantly denying it to this day. If it was a harmless conspiracy theory with no truth, why keep giving it air time to reject it?
Kaffie commented on Quantumworld's post: @Quantumworld: The big problem with the technical documentation is that it's not exactly clear how to use each function in combination with one another. And nofish just writes in coffeescript which is basically confusing af to try and convert to some basic/simple javascript. Maybe I'm just an idiot though lol. Def not a fan of coffeescript.
Kaffie commented on Quantumworld's post: @Quantumworld: Yeah documentation is very limited for ZeroNet. There's only one kiwipedia, but two ZeroWikis. The ZeroWikis are different, as they aren't merger sites (meaning their content isn't shared). @Klu9: There's very little documentation. Mostly just a couple of api function mentions in the docs, and that's about it. I've been meaning to write up a small example/tutorial merger site, so that people can easily clone it and adapt it to their own use. We probably also need a basic ZeroNet tutorial/how-to/information, which I also wanted to write haha. Lots to do.
Kaffie commented on Quantumworld's post: @Klu9: Absolutely agreed. Though on the hubs thing, "hub" refers to the data sites for a particular merger site. For example ZeroMe hubs, or 0gallery hubs, or Millchan hubs. Personally I like ZeroWiki's UX a lot better. But kiwipedia has that beautiful feature to auto-import wikipedia articles. Though there's a lot wrong with it (putting all of the articles in the same hub, and separating by language). I'm pretty sure it's not actively developed either, unfortunately. We really do need a good wiki solution.
Kaffie commented on Quantumworld's post: @Klu9: There's also kiwipedia, which has features to mirror actual wikipedia content with a click of a button. We just need a remake of a wiki platform that can use hubs properly (not kiwipedia's "hub per language")

Kaffie commented on Geekless's post: @SSDifnskdjfnsdjk: That's not a problem with zeronet itself though. That's a problem with community education, and content. nofish isn't responsible for making every zite. That's up to users. So if you want to eliminate that "requirement", you need to promote alternative id providers that don't rely on a centralized backend. I've been pushing/proposing a way to allow permissions to *all* providers, without specifically listing them, and then having a blacklist. However, nofish has said he wants to do a proof of work provider system if that happens. @Geekless: Multiple id providers can be used on the same sites. Which makes it far superior to clearnet stuff. The bottleneck is that the zite owner has to list them all manually.
Kaffie commented on Piloth The Mack's post: @Piloth The Mack: I tried vivaldi. There's some stuff I like about it, which has been ported over to firefox. So now I just avoid it as it's another chromium browser that lacks UI customizability and a lot of features I find handy. The big issue is that most of the major browsers are secretly all the same browser: chromium. Vivaldi, Brave, Chrome, and now the new MS browser. I'm not sure if Opera is chromium yet, but opera is.... not good. Personally, I don't really see any real viable alternatives to firefox. But you're free to do as you like. Mozilla and Firefox have already taken a stand to support decentralization, while the others have not. That being said, I have my issues with firefox and it's far from perfect. There really needs to be more variety in the browser wars.
Kaffie commented on Geekless's post: @SSDifnskdjfnsdjk: Technically untrue. While you *do* need a zeroid for a lot of major sites right now, it's *unneeded* for zeronet to work. As there are sites like millchan and zerovoat which don't require zeroid, and stuff like [kaffieid](http://127.0.0.1:43110/id.kaffii.bit/) lets you register without relying on any backend server whatsoever.
Kaffie commented on Somename666's post: Yes and no. You can't "ban" someone off of zeronet itself. However, you *can* ban people from posting to your own sites. In terms of ZeroMe, you can be banned from posting on certain hubs (that ban you), but you can always just make your own hub and keep using the service. You can't "ban" anyone from simply looking at a site. And you can't "ban" people from sites that aren't yours. So no matter what, zeronet is a haven for free speech.
Kaffie commented on Geekless's post: The live appearing content thing is something that sites have to manually add. nofish just has an incredible skill with polishing stuff to be really sleek.
Kaffie commented on Piloth The Mack's post: @Piloth The Mack: I just use firefox. Seems to be the best browser. Especially for decentralized stuff.
Kaffie commented on Kaffie's post: @leftside: `([A-Za-z].+?\.)\1{5,}` there's your regex. You can change the 5 to however many times for the minimum threshold of repeated sentences.
Kaffie commented on Geekless's post: Imagine interplanetary ZeroNet 😍
Kaffie commented on Geekless's post: @Geekless: Maybe it's just one chinese guy trying to make friends but he has no idea how to speak english or how social connections work.
Kaffie commented on Geekless's post: The comments on this are beautiful.
Kaffie commented on Kaffie's post: @Geekless: It's good to hear muting is working. I imagine the bans are holding up for new posts, but as we discussed probably has residual posts on things like the proxies.
Kaffie commented on Kaffie's post: @Geekless: No idea lol. Also, is everything working alright? I've been rolling out the bans/mutes as they come, so hopefully it's good. For some reason the proxies still get the spam.
Kaffie commented on P2P's post: @梦里乾坤大: Coinhive is a bitcoin miner that runs in javascript. It can't run if you don't visit the page. It's not a virus. Just scare tactics. There *were* a few sites/pages that had the miner, but they're well known and there are blocklists and such for it now. Not widespread, and not a huge issue.
Kaffie commented on Kaffie's post: This is getting hilarious. Now they're spamming with threats of viruses.
Kaffie commented on Kaffie's post: @leftside: just ban chinese ip addresses /s
Kaffie commented on Kaffie's post: @leftside: regex doesn't save you from random strings/text. Any text generator can defeat regex.
Kaffie commented on Kaffie's post: @Geekless: Makes sense. That's why I tried to ban with the archive. Since archival should automatically remove the user's files. for what it's worth I tried starting a new instance and downloading, and it *did not* download the spammer's data. So it prevents sending it to people and receiving it. But it doesn't delete once banned, which needs to be fixed.
Kaffie commented on Kaffie's post: I think the issue will be resolved naturally given two things: 1. Suggested mute lists by default. Similar to how adblock programs have lists that are auto-suggested/configured. And have mute lists *prevent downloading* of the muted user's content (this is key). 2. Have more sites, and not funnel all new users into the same handful of sites. This will reduce the size of the target. As of now, if zerotalk gets spammed, that's the only place people chat so it makes it a mess. But if there were hundreds of different forums, all given equal weight? Well then one forum spammed isn't a huge issue (it's only an issue for that forum). And with spamming basically being futile in a larger system, the incentive will naturally decrease. At least, that's the theory. So combining those two will likely solve the problem (and does for people who don't really care to spam other than some basic shitposting).
Kaffie commented on Kaffie's post: @Geekless: Yeah. Shows how relaxed my moderation is haha. I went ahead and changed the permissions field to have their auth_addresses (moving the archived over to straight removal of permissions). Are they properly banned/files deleted/etc. now? Edit: The proxies are still showing the posts.
Kaffie commented on Kaffie's post: @Geekless: Ah. Must've updated since whenever I did that last so like.... last year probably haha.
Kaffie commented on Kaffie's post: @Geekless: I do soft-bans usually through using the archive system. nofish had instructed me on how to do that, because the normal method doesn't allow auth_address bans, only name bans. I'll try doing a hard ban. Edit: How about now?
Kaffie commented on Kaffie's post: @leftside: Wait is it not actually removing them when I do the ban? The proxies still show the posts. They should be removed, and are on my computer.
Kaffie commented on Kaffie's post: @leftside: He's already on the mutelist and banned from kaffiehub. But yeah, something tells me we're going to need something a bit more reliable. If it's the chinese gov it'll just keep happening.

Went ahead and added ZeroTalk search support to my demo search site. This little site has become ridiculously handy and is basically 0 effort to manage (as any new content updates are automatic since it's fetching from other sites).

Right now it has: zeroup support (file search), kopykate (video), zerolstn (music), zerosites (web search), and now zerotalk (forum search).

The ZeroSites portion has effectively surpassed kaffiene in the index count, since zerosites has more sites than are in the tagged kaffiene index.

Perhaps I should add in zerome user search support, and switch kaffiene over to the new system? The site support far surpasses what kaffiene does, since they more or less fetch the same way (direct text search) but kaffiene uses hand-picked tags while the new site just fetches descriptions from zerosites.

@Blurhy: The sorting I used on my page was just by time. Kaffiene I had actually fetched peer/seed counts for each site, but that's a bit difficult to do now, and isn't exactly automated. For the zerome user search what I did was grabbed the number of followers and sorted that way (more popular users were higher up).

Good to hear regex should work with sql queries.

It depends on your algorithm

@SSDifnskdjfnsdjk: yeah it's a very basic search. Kaffiene is more flexible in that regard. Should be easy enough to add I think? Though the way kaffiene searched was a bit different (basic regex text search rather than querying a db). Can you do regex searches on dbs?

SSDifnskdjfnsdjk · ssdifnskdjfnsdjk@zeroid.bit15 hours agoReply

yes, it can be handy if there is some SE that can search popular ZN sites like your demo search site. Only make it a bit more user friendly and possibly make it default to search all the supported sites in one search and differentiate various types of search results (video, audio or a site link). If there are too many results, user can click to eliminate for example video/audio results in one or two clicks and use operators like -excludethis -excludethat OR !notthis !notthat
Btw. site seems to work with exact phrase, not separate words, so the results is limitted (which may be an advantage), though maybe if it returns no results, maybe i can click a button and it will search separate words of my phrase..

this already has zerome search + 0list search, maybe considr migrating it to your SE..

@Blurhy: The problem is that SQL dbs can be structured in many different ways. So you're basically just stuck writing complex sql queries to fetch content. Not exactly user-friendly. Sites themselves can add in search features, such as how kopykate did. But I found kopykate's search/browse function to be cumbersome. And many sites don't include a search function.

Found out there's a third type of "deepfake" that I hadn't really known about. The underlying tech is actually a bit unrelated and is called "pix2pix". Essentially what it does is it takes in a source template, and a pre-made learned style data, and applies the style to the source. So for instance you can make artwork into different styles, or make complete photo-realistic drawings out of a quick sketch. Or the more terrifying application: make photos of people look like other photos of people.

I had seen things like https://thispersondoesnotexist.com/ https://www.thiscatdoesnotexist.com/ and https://www.thiswaifudoesnotexist.net/ but I never really thought past the implications of it. I saw the video versions of this sort of thing (applying a source content to a premade video style) but didn't really realize a generative version for photos could work.

There is also full body generation ( https://datagrid.co.jp/all/release/386/ ).

So here's the scary part, such technology can be used to change clothing style or effectively create nudes of people. So sort of like the oldest deepfake tech, but in reverse. Instead of swapping the face you're swapping the clothes. IE stripping the person in the photo. So naturally I was horribly curious and it was kinda easy to set up for me. And I got to work taking pics of myself seeing what the extent was and how far it could go. I also tried some professional shots in various stages of undress, along with some amateur photos (to test low quality).

And the results are kinda..... mixed. Things like professional photoshoots in bikinis and light clothing work shockingly well, though there's some artifacting (you can tell its a fake in every case). In certain cases, both amateur and professional, the quality was well above what I've seen certain porn end up at, and the results looked realistic.

It also worked quite well even for people fully clothed. It was able to remove things like leggings but having notable blur/distortion along the legs. Shorts and t-shirts were removed fine. For tops it worked best with midriff showing, rather than having it covered up (it uses the navel to help align/detect). Long tops (tunics and such), dresses, and skirts all obscure the pelvic area and as a result have poor results, especially if the naval is also covered.

My own photos.... didn't go so well. My fully clothed photos ended up horribly disorted or improperly detected (my camera is low quality and I dress modestly). One photo I was wearing a t-shirt and jeans and it properly stripped, ending up with blurred legs, along with some distortion on the added nudity. Trying in underwear it ends up removing panties, but it was having difficulties with my bra, and worked better if I removed that entirely (ie just having it remove panties). It altered my breast size and never actually detected it properly, though it matched my and others' skin tone properly in every photo. Though some of the photos I took from online were altered as if there was a color filter over it.

TL;DR: Despite this seeming scary, it's actually not that bad. Just avoid skin-tight clothes and anything revealing (ie swimwear/undies). Though in the future this could be horrifying, specifically if it becomes popular or widespread. Especially since on my crappy old laptop the photos took less than a minute to create.

Example Image (clearnet)

I'm linking to this example image of a 3D modeled character as an example of the capabilities and the various steps the software does. Please do not seek out or use this software on real people without their consent. Thank you for respecting people's privacy. This is an informational post on technological capabilities.

Kaffie · kaffie@zeroid.biton Aug 18, 2019Reply

@Neuralgirls: Exactly. It's hard for men to understand why this is so harmful to women, but honestly they should just trust and accept what women are saying about it. They don't and can't know what it feels like.

Kaffie · kaffie@zeroid.biton Aug 18, 2019Reply

@Iloveguac: Pix2Pix combines an image/video with a style. It doesn't create new content. But with just a face you could do a traditional deepfake (putting the fake on videos that the person did not act out) and there are tools to find actors/actresses who most closely match a person.

I do understand what you mean by "best practice". Ultimately I feel women will need to start dressing more modestly to avoid this, as I mentioned in the original post (things like tunics, dresses, and skirts mess up the algorithm). For stopping face tech, naturally we can avoid posting our photo online, but also start using face coverings. Something like this would work for a face covering. And something like this or this is a style of modest dressing that would combat the tech I shared in my OP.

These would combat both types of deepfakes that can harm women. Ultimately it shouldn't be the responsibility of women to protect ourselves from such harassment and attacks, but in practice that's what will need to happen.

I intentionally did not name the software I was testing because I do not wish for people to use it. It's a bit technical to set up at the current moment, but when it first rolled out it was not (but that implementation was taken down).

Being able to generate full bodies/people from effectively nothing (just a trained AI) is not something that's available to the public, but you can see companies have already managed to do so with clothed people. It's only a matter of time before such technology is available to the masses.

Neuralgirls · neuralgirls@zeroid.biton Aug 18, 2019Reply

The experts (and victims) agree that fake nudes are as harmful as actual nudes:

"This is an “invasion of sexual privacy,” Danielle Citron, professor of law at the University of Maryland Carey School of Law, who recently testified to Congress about the deepfake threat, told Motherboard.

“Yes, it isn’t your actual vagina, but... others think that they are seeing you naked,” she said. “As a deepfake victim said to me—it felt like thousands saw her naked, she felt her body wasn’t her own anymore.”"

@Kaffie: Oh I understand that. Actually wanted to try it myself, see what it could make from my face, but I couldn't find any code that I could run. The closest thing I could was https://github.com/junyanz/pytorch-CycleGAN-and-pix2pix but it didn't seem to be able to do the whole body from a face.

Obviously the best practice is to just not post full body pictures of yourself in the first place, if the Internet only has access to your face, well I think even the stupidest of coworkers should be able to spot the differences.
No matter how good this tech get's it won't know what you really look like.

@Crazylime: The problem with that line of thinking is that there's a difference between pickup lines (even failed ones) and sexual harassment. It's why I don't really have an issue with something like catcalling. It's one thing to try and talk and hook up, it's another to literally make fake nudes of a girl and spread them around, including to those she may know.

Maybe it's hard to see when everyone else around here is extremely ignorant.

"Why do men seemingly fail to understand why sexual harassment is bad?"
Long-standing privilege (being allowed or encouraged to harass women without consequence and almost never fearing any harassment themselves) may be the issue here.

Kaffie · kaffie@zeroid.biton Aug 18, 2019Reply

@Iloveguac: It doesn't actually know. But instead uses AI to figure out what "should" be there. It also matches skin tone and the like. Effectively it's no different from someone putting in effort to do what are called "fake xrays", which have the same sort of effect/result. The worrying part here is the realism and lack of skill required (before it was something only certain people could do, now it's easy to do with a click of a button). Moving forward this can be incredibly harmful technology. Imagine doing it to whole videos. Or being able to easily take a video of someone and be able to freely manipulate the person's actions. That's where this is headed. I get y'all aren't women and don't see why this particular use case is bad. But consider politics. I posted recently about how deepfakes are being used to target candidates like Andrew Yang and Nancy Pelosi. And they'll be a bigger issue as time goes on.

Saying "just give out real nudes so there's no damage" completely fails to understand what the damage even is. It's a sexual exploitation that simply shouldn't happen.

As for "see how bad it is" I provided a link to the results and explained the effects of the current software. I intentionally didn't name the software nor provide a link, specifically because I cannot see a use in this technology. Feel free to look up pix2pix which is the safe and useful version of the technology.

@Znnex: Giving out real nudes would be worse than having fake ones being spread around. Tf? Do you not understand the problem at all? Jesus at this point I wonder if men are just incapable of understanding privacy and bodily autonomy.

Iloveguac · iloveguac@zeroid.biton Aug 17, 2019Reply

@Znnex: Well giving out real nudes would certainly remove the ability of anybody to blackmail you with fakes. If somebody got a picture of my face and threw it on a naked body it wouldn't bother me at all, because it's not a photo of me.
I'd actually like to try this stuff out just to see how bad it really is.

Znnex · znnex@zeroid.biton Aug 17, 2019Reply

@Iloveguac: There's nothing to worry about if you don't care in the first place or you're happy to counter every fake with explanations and real nude photos to prove the fakes wrong. Then you just have to ignore the people who didn't listen to that and it's fine. Some people can't or won't do that, though.

Iloveguac · iloveguac@zeroid.biton Aug 17, 2019Reply

I can't see how any of this technology could possibly know what your skin looks like under your clothes. How will it know if you have tattoos, scars, or a birthmark? Nothing to be worried about at all. We've been able to manually copy and paste one person's head to another person's naked body for ages.

Kaffie · kaffie@zeroid.biton Aug 17, 2019Reply

@Crazylime: Different people have different views. I think as long as nudity and seeing sexual organs is considered sexual, modesty will remain in some form. And given that male attraction is primarily visual and focused on female sex traits, I doubt that's going away any time soon.

Ultimately I feel that the way things will go is that women will gradually start dressing more modestly, with some outliers in the opposite direction.

Crazylime · crazylime@zeroid.biton Aug 17, 2019Reply

@Kaffie: I like how you think through conflict, and try to understand different perspectives, like the different views of women on porn.

Kaffie · kaffie@zeroid.biton Aug 17, 2019Reply

@Crazylime: It's a bit of a double edged sword. I see many of the men here posting porn and I have to wonder: do the women in the photos and videos actually know that such content about them is being spread around here? Do the men care at all or give it a thought?

Centralization can give the power to protect against these sorts of offenses (including things like child porn), but can also be used to censor. And centralization and power leads to corruption and harassment.

Balancing my natural need for modesty with my ideals about information and omniscience is something I struggle with in our increasingly decentralized and cyberpunk future. I think it's a struggle that all women will face in the future. There's also a growing cultural divide. Women who support sexual liberation and embrace the fact that nudes of them will exist and have no problem with it. And the other half who wish to stay modest for personal or religious reasons, who struggle with such widespread dissemination of photography and videos.

I don't think such personal invasions are at all necessary for the time being, especially since we don't really have a way of organizing, standardizing, or using such collected data for scientific research (the point of collecting it in the first place).

Crazylime · crazylime@zeroid.biton Aug 17, 2019Reply

@Kaffie: This is why I developed a love for history. The reason it repeats itself is that human nature never changes. Cultures can get better at containing its impact. Yet, I doubt there can ever be a utopia in a world with human nature. You are right, privacy is a defense. You have to defend yourself from human nature.

Even if you align everyone's intentions for good, there are still facets of human nature that are independent of intent. Our propensity for self-deception through false assumption is the reason we can drive a car. It's a gift and a curse at the same time. Thus, no cure.

Another one is power. Power corrupts. How do you create a culture where no one has power or can ever attain it?

This is why I love decentralization... it reduces power centers.

Kaffie · kaffie@zeroid.biton Aug 17, 2019Reply

@Crazylime: I'm a woman, so naturally this is the line for me. I can see the need for privacy in the current society. In an ideal world I feel that the culture would just have basic respect for women and no one would care to see IRL women nude, but instead be fine with generative porn.

Ironically the reverse is true for literally all of the stats/numbers of about my body. I don't care if people have that information, provided it's not used to harass/harm. But thinks like involuntary porn can be deeply harmful to women and used as blackmail and other horrible things. Privacy, as always, is used as a form of defense.

And naturally inside of our current culture, many women are naturally modest. Which is why "seeing them naked" is such a draw in the first place. If the world was nudist, there wouldn't be such a problem.

I do not defend capitalism itself, I defend FREEDOM, simple as that.

If you want to be a communist but VOLUNTARYLY, ok.

I do not accept coercion, forcing others to do something that she, you or anyone thinks is right.

I think the REAL free market is the solution.

Today we do not have a free market, because the state hinders the same, with taxes, fees, coercions generally against individuals wanting to make voluntary exchanges.

I advocate voluntary exchanges, that's all.

An example, to make my point clear or to try to make it clear.

I am totally in favor of facebook, twitter, youtube banning me from their networks as they are voluntary networks because I am not required to use them.

What I mean by that, I mean that anyone who wants REAL freedom should use zeronet as we are using it, because only when we ourselves have almost complete control of the content and keep it, do we own it at all.

Because while I am using the youtube platform and others, I have to accept THEIR rules.

So much so that I warn everyone who is crying, that youtube is banning conservative content or even communist content, come to zeronet, which is not cool here, clone a site and be happy posting your ideas here.

Zeronet is a marvel of technology, we are getting back to what the internet was like in 1998 + - when I started using the internet, we are getting back to the internet.

===================================
original PT-BR

eu não defendo capitalismo em si, eu defendo LIBERDADE, simples assim.

Se a pessoa quiser ser comunista, mas DE FORMA VOLUNTÁRIA, ok.

Eu não aceito coerção, forçar os outros a fazer algo que ela , tu ou qualquer um ache certo.

Eu acho que o livre mercado REAL, é a solução.

Hoje não temos livre mercado, pois o estado atrapalha o mesmo, com impostos, taxas, coerções em geral contra individuos querendo fazer trocas voluntárias.

Eu defendo trocas voluntárias, só isto.

Um exemplo, para deixar claro meu ponto de vista ou tentar deixar mais claro.

Eu sou totalmente a favor do facebook, twitter, youtube me banir de suas redes, pois são redes voluntárias, pois eu não sou obrigado a usar a mesmas.

O que quero dizer com isto, quero dizer que quem quer liberdade REAL, deveria usar a zeronet como nós estamos usando, pois somente quando nós mesmos temos o controle quase total do conteudo e mantemos o mesmo, é que somos minimamente donos deste.

Pois enquanto eu estiver usando a plataforma do youtube e ou outros, eu tenho que aceitar as regras DELES.

Tanto que eu aviso todo mundo que fica chorando, que o youtube está banindo conteudo conservador ou até mesmo conteudo comunista, que venha para a zeronet, que aqui não tem está frescura, faça um clone de um site e seja feliz postando suas idéias aqui.

A zeronet é uma maravilha da tecnologia, estamos voltando a como era a internet em 1998 +-, quando eu comecei a usar a internet, estamos voltando a ter liberdade na internet.

To think i am not normal is something i can be proud of because that means I'm moderate when many seem extreme:) I didn't say anything as fact or offer references because i would most likely be perpetuating a lie anyways:)

@Znnex: not really, the immigration issue is just being blown up by Trump's campaign, it's actually have fallen to an all time low already and also theres something called "Circular Flow/Wikipedia/CleanWeb" so if you secure the border, people are more likely to overstay their visas and become an illegal immigrant.

Its not ideal but its chill and you might prefer it. We are not on the verge of civil war or anything like that. A work visa would be easy i would think. Visiting shouldnt be a problem.

Since when did the topic changed to capitalism vs communism ... both isnt inherently bad it only becomes bad when pushes to the extreme. For example do you want capitalistic healthcare system that only the wealthy get quality care while ass off with the poor? Or do you want one that treat everyone equally like some european countries like Sweden which in this case beat the crap out of US in their quality while not being frikin expensive. Heck, look at the school system, being so capitalistic that prices and student debt rises like rockets while quality doesnt change much, and of course look at Finland for their education system.


@Caropc7: I believe you're a reasonable person, thats why I really urge you to take a broader view at how the "work = success" dream is so hard to achieve for poor people.
Here is an simplified explanation: Youtube/ClearWeb

Also about the we don't need "state", do you mean "state" to be any form of governing bodies? I'm a bit confused about that part.

@Kaffie: I told you, if the problem is others, open YOUR COMPANY and work, as you want.

do not force others to work or accept what you want via the state, that is coercion.

I was pretty clear, if it's bad in the US, go where YOU think it's best, simple.

I think the US is less worse than Venezuela and Cuba, so much so that Venezuelans and Cubans flee the communist wonders and go there.

You are spoiled brats who don't know life, go live in a communist country like cuba and or venezuela, as an ordinary citizen, then you will see the communist wonders.

There is only communism until the money of the others ends.

Communist countries generally do exactly what you say you are against, they take from the poor to give to the rich, but you apparently haven't read enough and are still deluded with this system, READ MORE.

I advise reading about anarcocapitalism

Eu acho que os EUA é menos pior que venezuela e cuba, tanto é , que os venezuelanos, e cubanos fogem das maravilhas comunistas e vão para ai.

Você são crianças mimamadas, que não conhecem a vida, vá morar em um pais comunista como cuba e ou venezuela, como um cidadão comum, ai tu vai ver as maravilhas comunistas.

@Bigbadbob: Is there a way to do that? I hear a lot of good about canada, but in practice they just seem to be the US with some added benefits? From what I can tell, canada has strict immigration requirements, and is still very capitalist and doesn't support people whatsoever (ie poverty in canada = poverty in the US).

@Caropc7: Again you seem confused. The countries you listed are capitalist. I don't mind a capitalist country if they can actually help. Your comments on employment are borderline retarded. The idea of violent enforcement of ownership IS COERCION by definition. The US, by definition, is one of the least free countries. Many countries have much more freedom than the US. As for exmployment "leave and go work somewhere else" misses the point entirely when everyone refuses to hire. So leave who? It's clear you don't read.

@Znnex: Finally someone with basic reading skills. AFAIK there's no actual country that will help, as most have been conquered by the capitalist imperialist empire. The few countries that remain are in extreme poverty due to manufactured famines and war. Along with strict immigration and communication policies to prevent contamination from outside groups. Not exactly ideal, especially for someone who needs healthcare.

Ultimately the solution is "be born somewhere else". Which can't really happen.

If you think the US is bad, go out and live somewhere else, don't stay somewhere that you feel bad.

I believe it really might be better for you to live somewhere else, because apparently you don't like the culture, so it would be better if you really live somewhere else, nothing wrong.

Consider the options and go, try, the most that can happen is that you have to go back to the US, no big deal.

Since you think other countries like Iran are better, go live and work in Iran, see if it's really good as you think it is, you might be right there.

Good luck.

Deixe-me perguntar: se alguém tem uma deficiência, como você espera que ela funcione? Se os porcos capitalistas se recusarem a contratar ou pagar os pobres por seu trabalho, como você espera que os pobres e deficientes tenham lucro? Você sabe? Ou você finge que essas pessoas não existem?

I'll talk again, I'm not obligated to take care of anyone.

You shouldn't be forced to take care of anyone, that's what I think.

If you think others have to be forced, via coercion, you have problems and not me.

For what you are preaching is beating people if they didn't want to help someone else's disease?

kkkkkk, like it doesn't make any sense, stop and think.

Since you want to use coercion, you agree to the state going to your house, beating or arresting you if you don't help me with money and so on.

I do not agree with this.

I think EVERYONE should help anyone they want and do whatever they want with their properties.

Read about libertarianism, anarcocapitalism, and stop reading this socialist junk, it seems to be making you bad.

You want to beat peaceful people who just want to live their lives, you want to use coercion so peaceful people pay or do what you think is right.

This is wrong in my opinion, I don't want to tell you when I say something, it's just an idea, it's just my opinion.

I just don't want to be forced to support you or support anyone else I DON'T WANT, that's all

I am more in favor of anarcocapitalism and libertarianism.

I think if you think it's bad something should just either stop paying it or get out of the place, simple.

In the case of employment, if the employer is paying badly, leave this service and get another simple one.

Because I believe that the employer or entrepreneur has not put a gun to your head and makes you stay, because if he did this is a crime.

If where you work is bad, just go out and go to work at another company or if you think EVERYONE pays bad, start a business and you're done, serve other people and be happy.

@Caropc7: You seem confused. I'm more than willing to work. But to do that someone actually has to hire. Capitalist pigs refuse to hire and then demand we starve and stay ill and homeless because they refused to hire? fuck that and fuck you capitalist pig. Oink oink.

Statistically speaking, those who do the least work have the most wealth. Those who have more wealth do less work to earn the same income as someone who has less wealth (who has to do more to earn the same amount). Those who are poor are often times ill due to being unable to afford healthcare, which again makes it difficult to earn a profit.

Also: wealthy people do not contribute anything of value. They don't help the poor/sick/homeless. They don't produce things people do. All the rich capitalist pigs do is hoard their wealth and make things more difficult for the poor.

Let me ask: if someone has a disability, how do you expect them to work? If capitalist pigs refuse to hire or pay the poor for their labor, how do you expect the poor and disabled to turn a profit? Do you know? Or do you pretend such people don't exist?

Kindly fuck off. Thanks.

how do i know what she is?

She herself says that the OTHERS need to give her things, because it is not the state that gives NOTHING to ANYONE, the state takes away from US, in the case of the people where she lives, from the country where she lives.

This she has to understand, when she demands, that others have to help her, in case the state.

What she's asking for is more poor people being robbed by the state.

I THINK WE DON'T NEED STATE, I THINK TAX IS THEFT.

I think it's unethical and immoral, me being forced to help someone coercively, just basically that said.

Other than that she lives in a place where freedoms and the free market, private property is very respected, more than here in Brazil and if she thinks she's bad, SHE has to fight and pursue better life, seek do something she likes and can make money like that, I think she should not expect the state to give her anything, because the state to give something, he will have to steal from someone and who pays are ALWAYS THE POOR, because They are the ones who have the least knowledge to escape the clutches of the state, which She thinks helps and NO, THE STATE IS PROBLEM, the state helps no one, it just screw the individual.

The reality is that if you don't "just work" here, you starve and become homeless. And it's impossible to "just work" as people are stingy with money and refuse to hire people. Besides african countries in poverty, I can't think of anywhere that's truly worse than the US. Even places such as iran seem superior.

Again, not a sure fire thing but since you are seriously considering a $ sudo rm -rf / on you, might as well use your time wandering on alt science/medicine forums looking for compounds that may have some helpful effects on your situation and stuffing yourself with such things. Like, if you lack ascorbic acid (vit. C) you could use some capsules (big pharma solution) for that, or just eat oranges (alt. med solution). Of course, you may end not actually finding anything that could either help you or be readily available for you but what would you lose trying by now 🤷. As for possible countries to move to? south america ones have more criminality than the US afaik, temperatures are higher all year long and medical services might be worse than what you have, on the other side you could rather find fresh crops and since laws are distinct you may even find it easier to get a supply of meds that may help with your condition, or just pain-killers. idk really.

At last, I kind of make an idea of you not being able to fix your current life because of your sickness and at the same time having to keep a minimum of social skills, a.k.a not looking like a utterly rude person so... if you feel the urge to scream really nasty things to someone or something then do it if it promises to relieve you of some torment.

If anything else doesn't work, I'd recommend leaving a suicide note stating the way you want your belongings to be distributed, using a quick death method for avoiding much agony, and if possible, setting up your death place in a way that your body ends properly cremated (mind to make it so it won't start a big fire, #savetheplanet).

I think you better take a look out the window, and see that you live in a GOOD COUNTRY, that a lot of people would like to live because of freedom and quality of life.

In Brazil for example, it is VERY WORST than I do.

But if you want examples of bad countries, china, russia, north korea, venezuela, cuba.

I think what you need to do is SEE more news of HOW the world is and stop complaining and start WORKING, get your hands dirty, run after YOURs and not blame others for not having things.

For NOBODY has to give or help, coercively.

Add a bitcoin wallet to your projects, which some people can help you with, look for freelance job sites on the internet, I believe you can get some good money for them.

KILLING can be a solution, if you just wanted to give up things, but if you want to REALLY SOLVE things, there is a solution and it IS NOT leaving the US, because that's a good place.

Here in Brazil, near venezuela, cuba and other places. IT'S VERY GOOD.

What I advise you to do is stop STOP crying if you don't have this or that and try to see things differently, yes it's hard to do this if you have depression, but a good start is to take a 30 minute walk EVERY DAY and then back. of some service.

Because I believe that there is a good job in the US, DO NOT feel bad for any type of service, I advise working based on a goal, I am currently working, aiming to buy BITCOINS and may not have to worry about money anymore. :)

So I can work on things that may not yield anything to me, but I like it.

Mas se tu quer exemplos de paises ruins, china, russia, coreia do norte, venezuela, cuba.

Eu acho que o que falta para ti é VER mais noticias de COMO está o mundo e parar de RECLAMAR e começar a TRABALHAR , por a mão na massa, correr atrás do que é TEU e não ficar colocando a culpa nos outros , por não ter as coisas.

Pois NINGUÉM, tem que dar ou ajudar, de forma coercitiva.

Adicione uma carteira bitcoin nos teus projetos, que algumas pessoas podem lhe ajudar, busque sites de trabalho freelancer na internet, acredito que por eles tu vai conseguir tirar uma BOA grana.

SE matar pode ser uma solução, caso tu queria simplesmente desistir das coisas, mas se tu quer SOLUCIONAR as coisas REALMENTE, tem solução e NÃO É SAIR DOS EUA, pois ai é um bom lugar.

Aqui no brasil, perto de venezuela, cuba e outros lugares É MUITO BOM TAMBÉM.

O que aconselho é tu pegar PARAR de ficar chorando que não tem isto ou aquilo e tentar ver as coisas de outra forma, sim é dificil fazer isto se tiver depressão, mas um bom começo é dar uma caminhada de 30 minutos TODO DIA e depois atrás de algum serviço.

Pois acredito que emprego tenha ai nos EUA de boa, NÃO se sinta mau por qualquer tipo de serviço, aconselho trabalhar com base em um objetivo , eu por exemplo, estou trabalhando atualmente , visando em comprar BITCOINS e poder NÃO PRECISAR ME PREOCUPAR com dinheiro mais :)

We've had our first instance of a deepfake video being pushed as political fake news. Specifically against our favorite candidate, Andrew Yang.

Specifically he held a speech at the Everytown Gun Sense Forum in Iowa and did quite well. News reported two noteworthy events, one in which he was pretty emotional after a personal story someone gave about knowing someone who was a victim of gun violence. You can see that in the clip. the other was supposedly Yang saying some rude shit about trump's physique, which you can see is not in the video.

So the MSM put up some deepfakes. NBC's deepfake here. In a twitter thread. There's another upload here that's the same and credits micki fahner (the twitter user who posted the NBC fakes). You can see that it's a different stage, lacking chairs and including a flag and podium.

There's also this ABC clip which came later, and is zoomed in to hide the surrounding environment, podium, and flag to the right. But in the clip you can still see the flag. This version is much closer to the original claimed speech, and will likely get passed off as such.

There's no full video giving context to these clips, because they're very clearly faked. Attempts to ask for the source leads to bans on the official yang subreddit, and I imagine on other platforms as well. After all, we can't question the narrative, can we?

For comparison, here is a deepfake of obama, doing the same thing. In this deepfake (revealed at the end) effectively the same thing was done: calling trump a dipshit.

Yang has also removed his policy on fake news and having an information ombudsman (to call out deepfakes).

I'm a bit conflicted about Yang now. If it's fake, it's deeply concerning how he'd remove his policy on it and just quietly accept it. If it's real, it's a bit concerning that his staff would ban people for asking for the source video to literally hear Yang speak about stuff.

Removing his policy without notifying anyone or clarifying it has been removed is also troubling. What else has been removed? Why isn't there a public list of policies he no longer supports? His transparency is plummetting, and it was what made me support him in the first place.

As I fall deeper into schizophrenia I begin to wonder if I'm really becoming unhinged or if I'm tapping into the collective unconscious and the pleroma, receiving a spiritual gift from god. Both seem equally as likely at this point.

It's weird because I feel like my mind is actually improving, not decaying. Whereas I figured it'd be the opposite. I begin to see connections between things that I couldn't before. Seeing the light. Or maybe it's a nonsense connection that my schizo brain made while fritzing out. Or maybe I'm an mk-ultra victim 😂🤣🤔🤔🤔🤷‍♀️

@Mg0: I've never done any mind altering substances, but it's interesting to hear that it sounds like "being high but in control". Since mind altering substances have been historically used to put people into particular spiritual states, which you can otherwise achieve with effort/practice (and the latter giving more control/focus).

@Mg0: I wouldn't ever harm someone. I'm nice haha. Even if I have bizarre views.

@Kid Courageous: lurk moar

@Styromaniac: As I said. In some ways my mind works faster/better. Like someone is giving me the answers to things. In others it's hard to intentionally call up and bring about what I mean to think about. For example if I intentionally try to remember or recall a fact about some history thing or some detail I learned a while back, it might be difficult. Something like "what's the capital of alaska?" would be hard. But other times I'll see/hear something and instantly I'm presented with many related concepts and ideas that are connected in a variety of ways. It's harder to put the connection thing into worse. So to use schizophrenia for example, I think about it, then I'm presented with ideas like schizophrenics having unique views, shamans/witches/etc. are on the fringe of society, there's wisepeople who have arcane special knowledge and perspectives, gods who were venerated as having special powers, jewish chosen people, hitler's aryan master race, hitler and himmler were into occultism and magic, jews/nonjews had a serpent bloodline theory, o- blood type, harvesting blood to use in "hospitals", regenerative harvesting found in sci-fi media, vampirism, etc.

And the thread goes on and it's easy to pull up the connected ideas. At some points I have a unique "spiritual" state of mind where it's like I withdraw from the physical world and enter a trance where this sort of thinking becomes hyperfocused. Beliefs and ideas start popping out in a similar fashion. So I'll suddenly know deep secrets about the universe, such as how there's particular unknown figures controlling the half of the universe that I (and my half) don't control, or how there's boundaries we never reach due to how mathematical patterns of behaviors and actions influence events. I'll magically know things like how people have connected thoughts and operate as one meta egregore entity.

I'm not in the "delusional" state right now, so it's a bit difficult for me to pull up an example. But hopefully that kinda clarifies it. Over time even my regular default state has been gaining these "abilities".

I'm really curious about the spiritual ontology of others, but it seems my questioning and poking around in others' psyche is unwelcome. Either due to the unspoken implication of my questioning and research, or perhaps the willful ignorance that people have been lulled into.

As it stands there appears to be a racial origin for two distinct kinds of spiritual ontology of humans. One which we can call hylic, and the other pneumatic. Pneumatics seem to have an ancestral origin specifically within the fertile crescent. The pneumatic ontology includes:

The physical body+brain which is external to the self and is controlled through imitative qualitative experiential imagery.

The mind or soul which is where such imagery appears and operates as a mid layer, this is where the pneumatic self appears to be located. It is a middle layer that is neither fully material nor fully spiritual.

And lastly what is called the spirit, or the "higher self". It's also been referred to as the divine spark. This is largely inaccessible to the pneumatic self, but can be deduced and inferred upon study in other areas (symbolic magic, quantum physics, special relativity, neuroscience, etc.). This is where the true pneumatic self lies, even though it's not immediately apparent. This is because the spirit actualizes the middle layer soul, which creates such an illusion. But the spirit, unlike the soul, is entirely divorced from the physical world.

The spiritual ontology of hylics is a topic which I'm unable to investigate due to not being hylic myself. My research so far seems to suggest that hylics only contain the most external outer physical layer.

In terms of racial origin, pneumatics mostly consist of mediterranean people, with an exception for some british people I have spoken to. For hylics it's the reverse: more or less everywhere else unrelated to mediterranean people.

While it may seem surprising, this is not actually a new fact or discovery. It's been known at least as early as 300ad, and likely earlier (as texts claim that Jesus spoke about it). Likewise, these two conflicting spiritual ontologies appear to stretch back further than that into the earliest religious writings.

In a more formal field we can see that the idea of qualia and philosophical zombies have been around for quite some time as well. Interestingly, it's a topic that the political elites wish to cover up, going to the extent of killing off all supporters of religions that have this idea, along with burning all of the related texts. Ancient christianity was actually hijacked, and a fake version was pushed as the official religion, which many people still follow today (which claims the exact opposite of the finding I'm talking about).

Nowadays it seems there are two major religious beliefs being pushed: the secular atheistic one in which no one has a spiritual ontology that expands past the physical body, and the mainstream religious one in which every single person has an ontology similar to the pneumatic one I outlined above.

Kaffie · kaffie@zeroid.biton Jul 30, 2019Reply

@Moor: You can say p-zombies are silly and stupid, but the reality is that I've run into people who fit that category: ie lacking qualia. Modern science tends to be hylic-focused, and ignore the spiritual layers of reality entirely. Ironically, to pneumatics the exact opposite seems more accurate: that we can reject the "stupid" idea of there being a physical reality.

Of course in reality the reason these ideas get pushed aside isn't due to inaccuracy or people not believing it, but instead as a part of a larger conspiracy to eliminate such ideas from the public consciousness so the actual larger agenda isn't discovered. After all, how can you promote the idea of "we are all the same" if there's clear differences?

@Wry: I used to be secular/atheist/etc. myself, so I definitely get it. I struggled with the afterlife question and now it makes sense why I was struggling so much. I was struggling because I was starting from a spiritual starting point (the soul/mind) and trying to work out what it would be like when that stopped existing. The reality is, of course, that things don't work like that. Pneumatics never stop existing.

I'm curious how you'd describe your structural ontology. IE you have your body, your brain inside that. and then.... what happens? Do you have an internal experience that's distinct from the brain? Do you even have a self? How does that work exactly?

Moor · moor@zeroid.biton Jul 29, 2019Reply

i don't really know about spiritual ontology but many philosophical inquiries, fields, etc just fell out of the mainstream because there exist now more dominant ones.
 
for instance old philosophical logic models aren't as useful as modern ones. Immanuel Kant demonstrated that inquires using old metaphysics are simply "unworldly", "mystical".
 
qualia is one such concept, its mystical and can't reveal truths about the real world, only abstractions, so it fell out of fashion.
 
although i don't know much about i love reading about philosophy of the mind. concepts such as p-zombies is just stupid (much like the Searle's chinese room) in modern times. we can more now than ever measure things precisely and accurately, it may be difficult but its just a matter of technology.

It's been confirmed I'm suffering from delusions. And they seem to be getting worse. With the rest of my symptoms it seems incredibly likely IMO that it's schizophrenia, but my therapist is hesitant to diagnose anything or suggest a treatment until I see a psychiatrist and psychologist to confirm.

So much bad stuff going on lately outside of myself. KyoAni was set on fire and a lot of their staff died or got injured. Sadpanda (exhentai) went down. E-hentai confirmed to go down by the end of the year.

@Mg0: Sure? To give some examples I mean things like Style Savvy, Animal Crossing, Stardew Valley, Princess Debut, Mystic Messenger, Long Live The Queen, The Sims, etc. Though in a more broad sense we could count stuff like Blossom Tales, A hat in time, etc.

A lot of the more overtly girly/feminine ones as you note tend to be shovelware. Which is why I was hoping to find others with a similar interest and perhaps find some good games or a community or something.

@Moor: The big problem is that most are for little kids (5 years old or w/e), and the rest are largely low-quality otomes on mobile. Part of what I wanted to try and do is curate a list of good games as well as try to list out genres and perhaps build a community. If y'all are interested in something like that definitely let me know as I've made a discord server for it.

@Pexo: "Girl games" are games that have women/girls as the intended primary demographic, or that are made in a way to appeal to feminine interests rather than masculine ones. While there is overlap when you get to "gender neutral" type games (that are neither overtly masculine nor feminine), most of the industry sticks to a masculine approach (go ahead and count the number of AAA games that lack any sort of violence). It's a bit vague but becomes a lot clearer when you actually look at games. It's a sort of "you know it when you see it" thing.

i thought the same thing. there are many visual novel games on steam that feature "girly" themes and its likely made for girls but its mostly played by boys, plus many of them have some level of sexual content. so in my mind "girly games" are either for children or for teenagers/adults.

though i like to think that some specific games and game genres are feminine or at least more feminine than masculine.

You mean, games that emphasize appearance, glamour or vanity like dressing games, some that resemble housewifes everyday life like cooking? I don't play those but if I ever find the need I think I'd just wander thru clearnet flash minigames sites. There are a couple of those for handhelds, I remember many when I used to lurk for nintendo DS roms.

So I'll probably be going without if they can't get it figured out soon.

people here had gathered around about sending money earlier and someone tried to send $100 but I never ended up getting it (patreon said it was declined) and the btc I'm not sure if I can liquidate that fast enough and realistically it's not going to be enough.

@Pexo: most people manage to find big enough circle with the same beliefs, now or then. They will happily keep sharing their "knowledge" among themselves and occasionally try to bring outsiders (which would do roughly the same), but most likely will be met with "no, your fake" and there is no reasonable continuation of this argument if all the factual side (beside maybe actual eyewitnessing) can be faked. So people who don't like arguments will simply continue with their opinion and those who do will participate in endless holywars.

Essentially, for all we know everything around us might be fake, but most people dismiss that idea and even those who don't usually continue with the lives as if they aren't fake.

you need to prove your point as best as you can to convince anybody.

Most people who have uneducated, unethical or plain silly views that i've argued with, do not even try. Exactly because they are used to their circle where they don't need to try hard to be convincing. There is no need to prove as best as you can, because there will be enough of people who will agree with you nevertheless.

Pexo · pexo@zeroid.biton Apr 20, 2019Reply

@caryoscelus:

Higher quality widespread fakes can for many people provide both further support of their beliefs as well as guard against changing it, because anything can be dismissed as fake.

But this is really only viable as long as anything else is of lower quality then your 'correct' one. Not all are extremists when it comes to their believes and when you see yourself confronted with 'obviously fakes'(since they are against your believe), which all have as good or better quality as your 'proof', then that at some point that will make you think.

They will have little incentive to doubt their views,

I disagree, people by nature want to share their views, they want to 'educate' and 'help' others to see as clearly as they themselves do. Having an believe and keeping it to yourself forever simply isn't going to happen. When was the last time you were convinced of something to be true and immediately thought: 'Well I'm not gonna tell a living thing about this'?
And because you know, that everybody else knows that good fakes are easy, you need to prove your point as best as you can to convince anybody. Chances are, that while doing that you'll come to realize that you believe might not have been the absolute truth you believed it to be. As I said before the majority of people are not the 'extremists' of their believe.

caryoscelus · caryoscelus@zeroid.biton Apr 20, 2019Reply

@Pexo:

But that implies that they already had this particular believe about you

I wasn't talking about beliefs about individuals, but about more global things. Most people have some beliefs about politics, science and many are ok with current low quality fakes to keep believing in otherwise "obviously wrong" things. Higher quality widespread fakes can for many people provide both further support of their beliefs as well as guard against changing it, because anything can be dismissed as fake.

the point is to stop his(or her) belief from spreading

My point is that they are already wide spread. Nobody enters the future world of total fakes with clean state, virtually everyone (even children) would have some point of reference which they trust (almost) unconditionally. They will have little incentive to doubt their views, because if everything equally fakeable, the easiest thing to do is to stick to whatever you have.

But that implies that they already had this particular believe about you. To change the mind of someone stubborn isn't the point, the point is to stop his(or her) belief from spreading. While he has that believe and won't let that change his mind(or even consider changing it), everyone else he tries to convince can and most likely will point out that his images can't proof anything(if deepfakes become widespread and known to everyone).

@Kaffie:

Just as any other nonconsensual sexual harassment/assault would be.

This is difficult, since where sexual harassment begins and ends is different depending on who you are and who you are. Personally, I don't care. For me things that don't affect me and things that just didn't happen might as well be the same.

There's not much "good" that seems to come from it

Fakes aren't a new thing and since it greatly reduces(or even nullifies) the affect those can have on my life, I struggle to even see much negative coming from it.
But I'm aware that not everyone shares my feelings on that, so take it however you want, I guess.

entire political speeches can be faked easily by anyone.

But this was and is also possible right now, without all the fancy AI stuff. This just eliminates the assumption, that such fakes are 'incredibly rare'. If these things become common place people will be forced to more thoroughly check the things they read, in order to be reasonable to everyone else, since as I said above everyone else also knows that images/video can be faked with ease. Therefore the argument must be made in a verifiable way to the person, that one would try to convince. And while one tries to make it as verifiable as possible, one might realize that their believes simply cannot be supported anymore.
.
The majority of people are not on the far end of the spectrum of their believe, where they would be considered 'beyond the point of no return'(cannot be reasoned with). Something to keep in mind is: Every believe starts and crumbles with doubt. This always goes both ways.
Contrary to popular believe the vast majority of humans have only the best intentions and misinterpret reality while trying to help and do good.

There's not much "good" that seems to come from it, and it's definitely something that needs to be addressed.

@caryoscelus: Exactly why it's a relevant issue for today. So much legitimately fake news (things that never happened, info that's factually incorrect, etc) is out there.

@Lostfile: UBI has come close to passing several times in the past, and currently has bipartisan support. Yang having arguably the most bipartisan support out of the democrat candidates.

I don't really get why people always say that deepfakes and the such are a bad thing.
Personally I think that deepfakes and easy to use high quality image AIs, in general, are a blessing. Because what they do is invalidate any image (and video) 'evidence', since you (at some point) can't differentiate the fakes from real images. As deepfakes get more and more popular and widespread, you (some point) have to assume that any or at least some of the (for example) nudes you come across are indeed deepfakes, creating absolute plausible deniability for the victim. Or as @diff quite accurately put it:

I think she needs someone to turn off the light after 11PM and stop her using backlighted electric gadget after that time for at least 3 to 4 hours.

Doesn't help. I've tried this before. The problem is that I wake up too late, and as a result go to sleep too late.

Her life style is like an uneducated beast. No, it's worse than that. Sleeping pattern is something to do later. But she needs to adjust her circadian rhythm first of all by light. Unless she follows the circadian rhythm, there's no treatment or medicine which can cure her.

Wow gee thanks. Ultimately though to fix that I need to relocate and move somewhere I'm more free.

@Kaffie: Plz write down all ur detailed prescriptions here. And plz write down ur wakeup time, bed time, meal time, and what kind of ingredients u eat and how much.

Prescriptions are just hormone medication as I said. Standard stuff. Estrogen, AAs, progesterone, etc. Wakeup and sleep times vary per day, no regularity. Wakeup is anywhere from 9am to 2pm, sleep is usually around 4-6am. I usually eat when I wake up, and then around 5-7pm, snack through the night. What I eat varies per day. I don't really have much flexibility because it's all group meals.

A lot of services require a phone number to use,

There are a couple, but not really any I can particularly recommend. Generally, it should be save to just google for online phone or similar and use one of the results to register(for example freesmsverifications(clearnet) or freephonenum(clearnet)(they are random examples, they are not recommendations, do not trust them!) were the first results that poped up for me), since only a phone number is not enough to really do anything to your account, on most sites anyways. It is however pretty time consuming to find a number that actually works.
I generally refuse to register on services that require phone numbers, but I realize that that probably isn't an option for you(my reasons for doing that are also probably very different from yours).

I'm no longer covered under parents insurance.

@leftside: I'm definitely working on a plan B. Most of my focus lately has been on trying to get employed somewhere and fix my issues asap.

@Styromaniac: It's pretty ridiculous here. Most people in my area (a rural/poor/conservative town) seem to be getting along fine, but there's not really any chance for being anything but minimum wage. In other parts of california there's usually a huge wealth gap. Those who can do well (managers, comp sci, doctors, etc) are fine and usually pretty well off, while those who can't are pretty much poor af. The big problem here is housing costs. Rent is very expensive, as is buying a house. And even more expensive if you plan on living in a city.

Though I'm much more thankful to be poor here in california than in some conservative state. If only I was in a city as well.

Kaffie · kaffie@zeroid.biton Mar 28, 2019Reply

@Styromaniac: Unfortunately there's not really a clear "goal" other than "have a sustainable income that I can live on". Generally that means solving my health issues, moving somewhere else, and getting employed (even if that employment is just zeronet fans funding my work).

@leftside: It's not so much the amount that's the problem. In my current situation I only need a small amount ($30/month meds, though that might end up going up next month, $100-500 medical tests/visits/etc. usually about once a month or so) and then whatever I'm living on (which I eat and have a place to sleep for free at the moment due to friends+family though I've overstayed my welcome). Moving elsewhere it's hard to say until I know the living costs. Usually I think it's about $1k-1.5k/month? Something like that?

I do need to undergo a $30k surgery which may or may not be covered by healthcare, sometime in the future (ideally sooner, but it's not a pressing or time-sensitive issue). And have about $24-30k in student loan debt. I don't expect y'all to fund either of those, but I'm sharing for transparency.

$100,000 would be more than enough to cover the debt, the surgery, and still have enough for long-term medical treatments. Or perhaps some years of living elsewhere and funding treatments for my current issues. I'd definitely be amazed if that much came to me.

Either way, the issue is regular/stable income not the amount of money.

Otherwise maybe search around in github for projects, that are currently hireling or something like that.

I think archiving stuff and digitizing them would be cool, but afaik people don't really hire for that kind of thing.

(Like doing tech support for small stores in your area)

There's no small stores in my area. It's all corporate chains.

Have you tried doing some long term freelance work(as programmer)?

Eh yeah that's what I've been trying. But unfortunately my work ethic and habits are so poor that the person loses interest before I finish. Pretty sure that genesis game I was working on is probably forgotten by now. Guy literally forgot I was working on it rip. deadline is up anyway so that was a waste of 6 months Dx. Ultimately haven't really managed much from freelancing.

If you don't mind me asking, but what exactly is your mental situation? (If you even know that, since judging from your comment on @60: s post, you don't really know, yet)

Basically I end up getting mutism and paralysis from time to time. And it's difficult for me to actually initiate tasks and start working on things. I also get the regular issues of depression, anxiety, that sort of thing. I also see doctors for transsexualism, which has probably contributed to depression (meds don't work right. fun.)

Kaffie · kaffie@zeroid.biton Mar 26, 2019Reply

@ulrichard: I'm guessing it works based on a number of people reporting you, and then determining that there's certain keywords along with a certain number of reports then autobanning. Which is fine if twitter had literally any support teams. If you try to contact them, their phone number doesn't take calls, their email redirects you to a form, and the form only gives automated responses. There's literally no way to contact a real human responsible for moderation.

People have realized this and have taken to "raiding" in order to have people removed from twitter. It's absolutely absurd.

ulrichard · ulrichard@zeroid.biton Mar 26, 2019Reply

@Kaffie: I wonder how much of the banning is just algorithmic, and how much is by actual humans trying to understand the content.

Kaffie · kaffie@zeroid.biton Mar 26, 2019Reply

As an example, one time I was suspended from twitter for mentioning how long I've been on medication; because someone had asked me.

Kaffie · kaffie@zeroid.biton Mar 26, 2019Reply

@ulrichard: The only significant difference is that I went more into detail about my medical situation. Each time I was banned from twitter, it was due to me clarifying certain details about my diagnosed medical disorder. Apparently clarifying my medical situation is "hate speech". When I asked twitter for clarification, I got nothing in response. As of now, they still have not responded to my questions relating to my bans, have not clarified whether they do indeed see my diagnosed medical disorder as "hate speech", etc.

I also detailed a bit more about my religious views on twitter, but those were not the cause of my problems. At least, I was never notified if they were. Though my religious views have gotten me banned from a variety of discord servers and subreddits.

As you may be familiar with here, I'm never hateful nor derogatory in my posts and comments. And I always try to be civil and engage fairly with people. And I certainly don't hate anyone.

For twitter it seems that they're upset that my medical disorders are medically recognized as medical disorders. Which is absolutely silly. Because what they are trying to push is very discriminatory, bigoted, and hateful towards people with my condition. And then they ban me when I clarify? Needless to say I don't have a positive view of twitter.

Do you have anyone to talk to? It's likely that they can help you!

Not really. I seem to be good at making people hate me for whatever reason.

Maybe a family member of a friend(or the other way around) can have a word with their boss and get you a place to work and earn money.

The family and friends who are in a position to even remotely do so have already "put in a good word" and still nothing has resulted. Turns out that referrals don't actually lead to people being hired.

Don't shy away from help, out of fear, that you would be a burden for those willing helping you.

I don't. But that doesn't stop the guilt.

If you feel alone and helpless, go find people you can talk to and open up about this.

I've tried. They just refer to suicide hotline lines which then promptly tell me to kill myself. Fun stuff.

Seek people who are in similar situations than you!

I've done this as well. It's honestly just depressing and makes the whole affair worse.

I know this is easier said then done, but isolation will really hurt you, especially if you're in a mentally difficult place!

Physical isolation there's really no choice here. Not without a large regular source of money. Digital isolation is done because I'm seemingly banned from literally everywhere. There's a reason I post here on zeronet on my own hub and own sites where I'm not restricted, muted, or censored. I spoke out on twitter and got banned. I joined support discord servers and get banned. I join support subreddits and get banned. Perhaps stop isolating people?

or consider calling/contacting a suicide hotline most of those actually have ways to help you.

They don't, actually. They literally can't help whatsoever. The only "help" they can provide is literally just sending police who are untrained in dealing with mental health issues straight to your door where there's a good chance that you'd be killed, and likely will go to a mental hospital in which freedom is taken away. No thanks. Turns out they can't help fix the issues; only make them worse.

Thanks everyone. I'm not really sure a little bit of money can fix my problems. Though a large regular supply (say, a regular income) would certainly help a lot. My current meds help a lot. It's just.... feeling stuck. And mostly stuck with uncertainty. The meds aren't quite doing what they need to. Things aren't at all going as planned. Then there's the social issues and relationship issues.

It's all horribly demotivating. It's just becoming very clear that there's not really anything I can do to fix pretty much any of my personal problems, nor the problems I see with society at large (thanks for complimenting my ideas :3).

I hate to be narcissistic but the problem largely isn't with myself, though my medical problems are things that appear unfixable and give me problems. But rather with society and my place within it. Along with my inability to really get myself out of this pseudoprison of poverty.

Now more than ever I understand what prisoners go through mentally, and has reaffirmed my views that such a thing is incredibly harmful to the psyche. For those concerned, I likely won't be killing myself any time soon, despite my thoughts of it. Namely this is due to a lack of a way to do so, but also a bit of my own cowardice. My continual failures have made me realize that a DIY approach to suicide will also likely end in failure, making my already miserable existence worse than it already is.

For those of you who wish to help financially, I do have a patreon account. And if y'all have any other ideas I can do those as well.

Thanks for all the support.

As much as this shows shoddy and unethical practices by the BBC, hate speech is a stretch.

I just finished watching John Oliver's video on China and Xi Jinping, and I couldn't help but start reading some of the chinese comments there and one caught my eye. It's hard to tell whether it's a legitimate chinese person's frustration, gov propaganda, etc. But one thing it made me realize is that there actually is western propaganda against China. If you believe the reports, of course, it's easy to dislike China. And even our few interactions with what we believe to be the chinese government.... weren't ever confirmed such.

Is there a possibility that the "poor attempts" of the chinese gov to censor, squash criticism, etc. are actually done by western organizations? We're lead to believe China is a technological superpower, capable of tracking citizens with advanced facial recognition, gesture recognition, etc. software. Along with a complicated "credit" system that dictates control. But if that's the case, why when it comes to the censorship attempts does all that technological progress boil down to "zeronet is a shit"? At the time I kinda just laughed it off, but it really struck my core as something being off. This sort of incompetency isn't what you'd expect from a technological superpower.

We see the same trend with north korea. Despite their impressive built cities, their impressive military displays, custom gnu/linux distro, excellent propaganda pieces for western consumption.... they seem hilariously incompetent at actually managing the perception of themselves.

We see this trend again with Russia. World superpower, yet somehow unable to make a proper internet presence and influence viewpoints? We're lead to believe that any opposition to the US elite narratives is somehow russian meddling. We see their news organizations (RT) do solid work, sometimes better than western media. But again, somehow their image is solidly trashed and they seem to have no appearance? Both the left and right seem to hate Russia, as well as China and North Korea.

There's something really unnerving about the sheer incompetency, yet striking propaganda pieces by their "enemies" that has been happening and appears to be a global trend. We know here in the US our politicians are a bunch of buffoons who can't do much right.

It just seems really suspicious how all of the worlds leaders are seemingly so incompetent they can't manage their own countries, yet we're lead to believe they have a tight grip on everything? Which is it? What is the incentive in inflaming these narratives?

If Russian And Chinese users could comment and share their thoughts that'd really be great. It's hard to get a clear view while digging through American propaganda, and naturally I'm in california where a huge portion of this shit comes from.

I'll repost the youtube comment here for discussion:

As long as we are developing independently, we have no interests pointing at other countries. That's basically how China gov deal with US gov or any other gov.

@Kaffie: If you mean online comment astroturfing, I believe it's just low-paid people. Typical outsourcing / gig economy stuff.

Whereas the censorship, blocking and DDOSing efforts are more sophisticated affairs, involving a combination of tech (like the Great Cannon and the Great Firewall ), embedded personnel at ISPs and media platforms, and just plain old fear: companies carry out censorship themselves on their platforms, both to comply with the law and for fear that at any moment their permission to operate will be revoked, so they often go way past the line of what might be necessary because they never know where the line really is. Which is exactly how the party/state likes it, especially under Xi Jinping.

Especially as anyone above {Rank 1} is never going to spend their time trawling comment threads in English all over the net to verify the quality.

Personally I've seen more and more CCTVs on streets of Chinese cities. The CN government always want to have tighter controls with everything, and I guess maybe CN companies told beautiful stories to government, and officers may not have solid background to understand the unmentioned limits of the technology, e.g. face recognition is fast and accurate, but only under the condition there are about thousands candidates. Or maybe offices do understand it, but they do not care, as long as they can earn KPIs on the surface, and kickbacks under the hood.

@Quantumworld: Of course none of this is concrete and it's nothing you can arrest someone for. But come the fuck on. And yeah, a lot of this evidence they tried super hard to cover up. They deleted them all off the instagram page, they banned any reddit discussion relating to it all, they put out so much propaganda and outright lies about it. They attacked various archive services. Etc.

The severe reaction, along with the highly suspicious posts that are more characteristic of a pedo ring than a family pizza shop, are what make me believe it. Do I believe all the claims? Of course not. That'd be silly. But to say there's nothing suspicious is ridiculous.

All that being said, this was after a few minutes of research. Imagine if I actually put an effort into it. It's pretty clear that pedo stuff is going on. The evidence just keeps adding up. Keep in mind that the pizza places in question both had pedophilic logos that were changed immediately upon questioning and then they denied they ever did. Why deny literal facts?

And the fact that it constantly gets hated on by the MSM is really telling. Just as we saw with JFK and 9/11.

@Kaffie: I am totally on the same page with you on this. We don't have any solid evidence. My theory is that there was allot of evidence and it was all removed and they went into damage control. Then the opposing side (ping pong) flipped it and projected it out as a tactic of a cover up. The intelligence agencies are doing the pizza coverup. Eventually they will find bodies after the story goes away. And I would never eat at that pizza place. Places like that may serve anything.

Good side effects of p2p. Lower bandwidth usage. And redundancy file storage making data even more secure because of its redundancy of storage. It is a design win win on so many levels. Eventually those 3 tb drives we buy will be used for Zeronet web storage. Also for the first time you can carry websites with you that work without internet. Will P2P someday replace the server farms? That sounds totally crazy doesn't it. They said the same thing when the automobile was invented.

UPDATED COMMANDS to calculate SPAMMABILITY SCORE :
.
echo "scale=4; $(cat spam.txt | sed 's/[ \.,]/\n/g' | wc -l) / $(cat spam.txt | sed 's/[ \.,]/\n/g' | sort | uniq | wc -l)" | bc
.
Just put the spam text into spam.txt and copy the above command line and paste into your bash terminal. And run.

(In case that shit-guy erases the comments which I used to calculate the SPAMMABILITY SCORE, I archived them to here.

@Kaffie:
Just compare the number of unique words with the number of entire words by echo "$spam_post" | sed 's/[ \.,]/\n/g' | sort | uniq | wc -l vs echo "$spam_post" | sed 's/[ \.,]/\n/g' | wc -l.
.
This gives:
33 vs 206 for the previous shit-guy's comment [1].
16 vs 342 for the previous-previous one [2].
.
206/33 = 6.24
342/16 = 21.38
.
That is, the previous-previous one is more spammable than the previous one.
.
In other hand, your current comment gives 26/24 = 1.08.
It means, your comment is very low score to be called spam.
.
This works like a charm~!
.
But, this will not work forever if they notice this and change the strategy.

We can actually make some of my suggestions come true easily.
.
Just make a kind of private site or hidden post where only selected members a.k.a trustful users could post comments on it.
.
Those comments are actually a kind of collection of commands to vote on certain range of items such as screening out a certain post or comment, deciding regex patterns to filter the contents of the post, or blocking a certain spammer.
.
And, a kind of interpreter-script is going to be running on the site owner's 24/7 power-up PC while monitoring that private/hidden site or post for the comments or commands from the co-administrators.
.
The command interpreter will translate those administrators' commands and will apply them to the data.json or contents.json files on the site owner's zeronet folder, and restart the zeronet by sign-publishing the modified configurations and data, so that spams got removed or screened out, and the spammers got killed, and filtered contents will be automatically blocked!
.
PEACE~.

Careful arrangements of rules will do the job.

The rules work in the Clearnet (more or less), since the registration on a site has a cost. It's a captcha, the need of unique email address for each account (which means captcha again), premoderation of new users, ban by IP, etc.

So an automated attack has some real cost, which not every evil person's ready to pay.

Here in ZeroNet, an account is just a sequence of random letters, and no preliminary checks are possible. Your site either has non-zero limit for "unknown" accounts and allows posting for everyone, or not.

I think the issue will be resolved naturally given two things:

  1. Suggested mute lists by default. Similar to how adblock programs have lists that are auto-suggested/configured. And have mute lists prevent downloading of the muted user's content (this is key).

  2. Have more sites, and not funnel all new users into the same handful of sites. This will reduce the size of the target. As of now, if zerotalk gets spammed, that's the only place people chat so it makes it a mess. But if there were hundreds of different forums, all given equal weight? Well then one forum spammed isn't a huge issue (it's only an issue for that forum).

And with spamming basically being futile in a larger system, the incentive will naturally decrease. At least, that's the theory. So combining those two will likely solve the problem (and does for people who don't really care to spam other than some basic shitposting).

I made an easy-to-follow mute/block list for spammers here.

The only people who will be included on this list are spammers. Not pedos, not nsfw users, not people with controversial political views. While I think a separate list for pedos and people who distribute CP is needed, I'm not really up to maintaining that. And there are already blocklists for cp/pedo/porn/etc. But none for spammers.

It's not my place to dictate the content that people want. Nor do I see any reason to set up public lists for such. But spammers are something that no one wants. Hence a public list.

Enjoy!

Very helpful and thank you very much for this effort! I've been wondering when will they deploy automatic spam bots. It seems that some of the names in the list are machine generated.
Perhaps we may find their patterns and build a countermeasure to pretend such IDs from registering at all ?
Or maybe there can be an export/import mute list feature in future versions of zeronet?

ps:i personally don't believe that simply banning all chinese ips is the solution.The regular chinese users are already suffering from GFW.If Zeronet banned all chinese ips,that means the government would win and the spammers' purpose would be filled,meanwhile regular users from china would lose a way to reach outside worlds.

@Geekless: Makes sense. That's why I tried to ban with the archive. Since archival should automatically remove the user's files. for what it's worth I tried starting a new instance and downloading, and it did not download the spammer's data. So it prevents sending it to people and receiving it. But it doesn't delete once banned, which needs to be fixed.

Geekless · geekless@zeroid.biton Feb 07, 2019Reply

I renamed the spammer's data file and rebuilt the database. Now the comments, related to your hub, diappeared.

I've not checked out the sources yet, but here's my guess what happens:

  1. In the core engine, the ban check prevents data from both receiving over the network and getting into the database.
  2. But it doesn't delete the affected files automatically.
  3. The merger feature ignores the ban check and uses all the files to build the database.

So ban on hubs works more like freeze.

Geekless · geekless@zeroid.biton Feb 07, 2019Reply

@Kaffie: I tried rebuilding the database, and it had no effect. Maybe that's an issue of the merger feature. It's implemented as a plugin, so maybe it badly operates with the core parts.

@Quantumworld: i think if person that is being consistent annoyance so that someone want to mute them later becomes a better person, they can announce the news from the new account. Granted, some people may block impulsively and then optional timer can be useful.

As for "block wars": if a user publicly blocks someone for wrong reason (i.e. they advertise their list as anti-spam list, but then add those they simply don't like), rather than adding them to a mute list it makes more sense to call them out on that. If, on the other hand, someone wants to block owner of "people i don't like" list on their "people i don't like" list, i don't see a reason to care about such "war". Even if you make personal list public, it doesn't mean others will start use it.

Also, if someone wants war, they will find tools; those who don't can just ignore the war

It requires for the admin (or anyone who can modify data/users/content.json) to be online, of course.

The idea is that the site engine reads the mute list and modifies the permissions section. Moreover, since the file has no strict format, there can be additional fields there, clearly stating the ban reason and the source list.

So many features that can be implemented on top of the current ZeroNet core, and so little time...

Right now I'm stuck with redesigning ZeroBlog internals from the God-object antipattern into a flexible component model. I hope to unify ZeroBlog and ZeroTalk engines into an single framework, but I have some troubles designing the architecture...

What bothers me about the mute lists is what if some one was just a one day ass hole. And they figured out that what they did was wrong. They are forever on that list of banned users. Everyone has a bad day from time to time or may post content that you absolutely object to. However later on they may post content that is very useful and good. Ultimately I would love to see a timer on a ban list that could be user set. Say (username) posted spam or stupid stuff that I did not like. (Like they got drunk and posted!) I can put them on a time out block. It could be set it up as an hourly block to a month and year block. I think we have all been jerks at one time or another and a timed out block list might be a useful tool. When time out is finished a notification should be coded that (user) block has reached there time limit.

Technically anyone can modify ZeroNet. You have the entire source code on your machine. Feel free to modify it as you please. But to have changes pushed to everyone, nofish needs to approve it and merge it into the version everyone updates to. Others can naturally download your version of zeronet, but good luck trying to get people to move away from nofish's version.

Some users here (myself included) modify our copies of zeronet to add/test/etc. new features prior to it being pushed to everyone else. And people can obviously submit pull requests to the zeronet github (at which point nofish needs to confirm and merge if he accepts the changes).

For example, a lot of the ipv6 work was done by someone else, and nofish just put some finishing touches on it and merged it in. Go check the github if you're interested.

So things that I block, may not be things that you may want to block.

Exactly. That's why the lists are optional, and should be clearly detailed. That's why I don't really like the "nope list". Because wtf is a nope? If someone wants to make a list to block rightwing posters, I don't see the issue with that, but I wouldn't follow it.

My zernet data directory is about 18 gig so far.

Damn. A lot of sites? Or a lot of videos/files/music/etc?

Migrating to python 3.0??

Right now ZeroNet still runs on python2.7. Which is pretty common. However, py2.7is being deprecated, and python 3 is what will be supported in the future. They're a bit different in syntax and the way you structure code, so it takes time to migrate the code. That's what nofish is working on right now.

@Kaffie: I have 5 Zites that I blocked because the site was not working. Probably a new user learning zeronet. So things that I block, may not be things that you may want to block. My zernet data directory is about 18 gig so far. And zeronet running on its own is only transferring about 400 mb per day average. That is just so amazing right there. Very low bandwidth usage. Zeronet is absolutely the future of the web.

@Geekless: Indeed. ZeroNet is currently in a code-freeze until the migration is done.

@Kaffie:

Ideally in the future mutes will delete the content from your machine and not distribute any from those users.

Looks like that won't be implemented until Nofish finishes porting the code base to python 3.

@Geekless: Of course. He's a libertarian 😛

@Quantumworld: You'll want to be careful about following user mute lists then. Like the one I'm sharing. As they'll be hidden entirely like they weren't there. Site blocklists are fine for you, because it'll just pop up a warning screen, like that red "warning" page that google does when you go to a possibly malicious site. You can simply ignore the warning and dl the site anyway.

But yeah, I'm wary of following user mutelists that don't have a clear reason. Like the "nope" list. Like wtf counts as "nope"? Spam is pretty clear. I'd like to see something like that for users who post pedophilic content. The problem is that the mutelists end up getting a variety of shit in there.

I have other users I mute, but they aren't spammers so I didn't include them in the list.

If you're uncomfortable following the lists, you can always see the list of accounts and the reason given for the mute. And investigate yourself if you want to mute those individual users.

@Quantumworld:

There needs to be a delete option for zerome

You are switching between liberal and totalitarian views so fast, so I'm a little confused.

@Geekless: I want a mind download on everything technical about Zeronet. So far I have not found an app for that yet but I am still looking.. lol

@Quantumworld:

I hate running a block list from other peoples lists.

I hate that too, and I usually don't trust people enough to follow their mute lists.
Now it's the first time I've enabled a 3rd party mute list. Kaffie is a well known ZeroNet user, so I guess I can trust the list this time.

@Kaffie: I hate running a block list from other peoples lists. One persons block may be another persons like. So I am stuck verifying everything. But that is the price you pay for p2p and I like it that way. I got banned on twitter 5 times and finally a lifetime ban for harassing animals on twitter. (Twitter admins are Insane!)
