Hmm, never seen a forum where people spoke quite that openly...

I think I'm going to like it here. B)

Well, that was a little harsh of quiller.  He didn't need to insult trash and filth like that.

This blows my mind.  I don't even know what to say.

Thanks for the tip.

Another purge forthcoming?  With this administration, all things are possible.

    Now, here is a good one. Open source developers and coders, the Linux community,are now being placed on the terrorist watch list by the United States government for visiting the Linux Journal.
    It has gone so far now that we don't even question the right of the authorities to watch and record visitor IDs to whatever site they want, we are now getting caughtup in ancillary issues, such as, "Should I drop my interest in Open Source programs?" Out of fear and intimidation, of course.  But then, I can say that. My working days(and life) are behind me, for the most part.

Nobody is dropping open source, that is silly.  Like the attempt to erode the Second Amendment, it's just a display of what power the Federal Government thinks it has.  They don't own technology, sorry libs.

Clicking this link will land you on the federal watch list.  :-\

     Some will recall I recently posted an article about flat file blogging system called Jeckyl that is becoming popular. Even Obamacare uses one.  It is an open source platform, meaning to me at least, too much trouble installing it.

It isn't intended for the non-technical to install.

Quote
   Those programs are in community development,change a lot, and only after years do they come out with the one click install.

     So, I don't have a Jeckyl blog, but I can read the writing on the wall. So can Washington. Flat file blogs in HTML are strictly to present content, which, really, is all we ought to care about. They load fast, work fast, and, most of all, don't have all the security holes and marketing apps that Content Management System (CMS) based sites are full of, making them so slow and abusive of the bandwidth meter.[/quote]
Content management systems are fine.  They consume more horsepower because they have to do a lot more.  I wouldn't chalk up a negative to an 18 wheel semi because it consumes more gas and drives slow.  It sort of has to for the value it brings to us.  Jeckyll is great, but to use the truck analogy, if you are using an 18 wheel semi to transport a suitcase, you can probably get away with that in a small efficient Honda.  You wouldn't run anything dynamic, like this forum, with Jeckyll.

  Interesting name, Jeckyl.  It says it all: benevolent on one side, the devil on the other. Reminds me of some people I have heard of.

     This is just one example of how open source community responds to concerns of privacy and freedom.

No it isn't an example.  You made the case for using the most efficient tool for a specific job.

At onetime, No one, in the criminal hacker community dare hack a Linux development operation.

Huh? Since Linux powers most of the internet and servers, they are the prime target for hackers.  Just running Linux doesn't make you immune from attacks in any way, shape, or form.  Your security is only as good as your security team.

Quote
It would have been laptop suicide. However, now that Linux has been adopted as the "safe" OS, the criminals are increasingly breaking into  Linux systems because that is where the money is.

Hackers have always attacked Linux servers.  I have no idea what you're talking about.

Quote

The US Government,  though, feels no such compunction. Lead the way, hack away. Instead of enforcing privacy as required by the Constitution, our government has set itself up as the role model of illegal surveillance and privacy invasion.


I would not advise visiting the Linux Journal just for the hell of it; though I do.

Don't encourage fear.  I visit is all the time because I am not going to live like a criminal.  I obey the law.  The government needs to change, not me.

None of this crap is racial. It's poverty. It's class. It's desperation but it's not racial.

I wish you were right. But the sad truth is that it IS racial because that's what the media want it to be. Driving voters to the polls is tough when the issues are poverty or class. But it's a piece of cake when the issue can be made to be the color of your skin.

Research carefully the way the Trayvon Martin case was promoted in the media. Martin was shot in FEBRUARY, but the case didn't start making headlines until just about this time of year in 2012, another pivotal election year.

If you honestly think the timing of this Ferguson crap and the upcoming election are not related, I have some ocean-front property I'd like to sell you, sight unseen. I'll throw in a bridge or two. Trust me, man, just trust me.

Which is precisely why, shortly after kicking the Dems out of our Senate.

Congress needs to impeach the wannabe dictator and remove him from office.

The time for games is over. There are very real, direct threats to this nation which MUST be addressed.

The Obama and company, as is demonstrated by their repeated incompetence.

Are obviously either not up to the job, or unwilling to do the job.

Either way it's time we put someone in the office who will and can do the job.

I trust that you understand that your plan of action will place Joe Biden in the White House.

I say again, Joe Biden.

That's never gonna happen as long as one of their own rule this country as a dictator.

Yes Kit there are two more, and they are threatening to do the same to them.

As well as threatening to come here and do the same here as well.

Which given the situation on our borders, in point of fact wouldn't be very hard for them to do.

Just an observation. During my years in the Middle East,  I needed to have a rudimentary
grasp of basic Arabic expressions and phrases, such as: Hello, Goodbye, Yes, No, North,
South, East and West, What time is it? Come here, The meeting is at 1pm, and so on.
It took many months to remember and to pronounce these. Arabic is extraordinarily difficult,
along w/Mandarin. Firstly you must master their alphabet.  Also it reads and writes from
right to left. I assume Holder is joking because these minorities can't even master English
by 18 years of age!!!
