Wasn't the whole point of using the cloudflare CDN supposed to be to prevent attackers from hitting your server directly? Did Cloudflare leak your server's actual IP? Did you talk to Cloudflare about this attack?

Edit: Ok I read that other thread where you pretty much answered the question about how the IP leak happened.

Can you guys make voting like reddit why does a downvote have to be a happy face and count as a 'fun' vote, thats retarded by shadow_wolf7 in SaidIt

Although no downvote is a good thing, turning it into a second upvote does seem retarded. It is like a lazy code hack especially when each type of vote applies 2 votes instead of 1.

Steve Pieczenik said Bin Laden was a CIA asset the entire time and he should know, he served under 4 Presidents so when he said Bin Laden was dying of Marfan syndrome in a Dubai hospital at the time of 9/11, and that he was visited by CIA physicians there in 2002 he was probably right because Steve Pieczenik was himself a former CIA physician. I read an interview that he gave long before any of this, back in the 1980s where he described the role of CIA physicians and he said they will travel anywhere in the world to attend to sick or injured CIA people.

10,000 gallons of jet fuel by raven9 in conspiracy

[–]raven9[S] 3 insightful - 2 fun3 insightful - 1 fun4 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

Kerosine jet fuel is a liquid fuel with properties similar to gasoline. All those with common sense can evaluate how far a liquid fuel is likely to stretch. 10,000 gallons would fill about the size of a small 12'x12' bedroom. Build a model of that building 6ft tall and take a the proportionate amount of gasoline the size of a pea and try to replicate what that amount of fuel was supposed to have done on 9/11. Not going to happen.

American workers are being forced to tip their work collegues so the corporations can call them all tipped workers and invoke tipped worker laws that allow them to pay reduced minimum wage at $2-13ph. by raven9 in LateStageCapitalism

No it is not. It is a fact of neo-liberal capitalist profit greed. An average high street corporate chain restaurant recording profits of a quarter million dollars a month while manipulating loopholes in wage and hour laws to push their employees down to $2-13 per hour is a despicable exploitation of the American working people by the selfish greedy criminal pig mafia that is running this country.

"No, I think that it's not supposed to be the way you present it because its contrary to the generally accepted concept of ownership."

When you have the neoliberal capitalist agenda that ensures these media will always be in corporate ownership, and those corporations use their wealth to control government to ensure they are excused from any laws, legislations, constitutional restrictions, or charters that were intended to apply to that kind of thing, what you have is a fascist regime that usurps government and a society relying on and revolving around social media that is under the control of ignorant fascists and unelected self appointed dictators that have no respect for individual freedoms of speech or expression and act in direct contradiction to not only the UDHR but also the intent of the 1st Amendment and I believe it was Thomas Jefferson warned that this kind of thing would happen if we did not act to prevent it.

I did not suggest saidit is different.

I think you are the one who misunderstands. That article 19 represents one of the reasons 80 million people died in the war. That war (WW2) was fought, according to the allies, for 4 freedoms. The first freedom being, freedom of speech. It is in respect of that fight for freedom from fascism, that article 19 was drafted. I think you should read it again and read it slowly and realise that just because that is not how things are today, does not mean that is not how it was supposed to have been and the reason it is not, is because fascists who prefer authoritarian control and censorship and have no respect for freedom of speech or those who fought for it, have taken control of social media.

Most of the civil wars we have seen around the world during our lifetimes were CIA covert operations. They overthrow governments and install puppets that would convert all their profitable national assets and industries to publicly traded companies. Then the western corporations would quickly take control of them on Wall Street. Once they did that they own the profits of those industries for ever more, sucking them away from the country and the people that create them. This is why African countries that produce the worlds valuable resources like diamonds live in poverty while Americans who do nothing of value get fatter and more obese.

We really need a way to mute subs by bobbobbybob in SaidIt

[–]raven9 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Cloning so many reddit subs was a mistake in my opinion. When a community is small you don't want to spread them thin across hundreds of barely used forums, it results in tons of no response posts which make it seem pointless and is the quickest way to lose new users back to reddit.

I think you should have chosen a few popular topics and created a basic group of maybe 20 or so subs for those and then let the users expand it from there by creating new niche subs as needed. This would have concentrated discussion and debate in those original subs and Saidit would have appeared to be a much more active community than it does now. Active attracts new users.

Yeah and the moderators on reddit invoking sneaky rules to remove it from the high profile subs, like when I posted it on the science sub they removed it while citing a rule that says posts must reference new peer reviewed research. Even though most of the posts on there are not referencing peer reviewed research, they single out this one. The engineering sub mods just remove every post about it without even an explanation. The extent to which these propagandists have taken control of the internet and are now acting to suppress news and information is insideous.

There is another option, that is to use encryption that is resistant to the man in the middle such as public key encryption. So prior to registering a username and password, a temporary key pair is generated by the users client. The private key is held by the user, the public key is encrypted with saidit's public key and sent to saidit. That means only saidit can decrypt that to retrieve the users public key. The user’s public key is then used to encrypt and send the user a shared encryption key that is used by both sides to encrypt the rest of the traffic after that, which includes the users account registration.

The point of all that, only saidit can link username to ip address and only saidit can know username and password and real world identity, therefore protecting users from the kind of intimidation tactics in retaliation for criticising government. We already seen how the FBI issued search warrants for everyone who responded to a guy on 8chan who commited a murder. How long before they set up some shit like that to incriminate us? We are already on that slippery slope its just a matter of time in my opinion.

I know but do you see what I am saying? I think this is an important issue.

As I'm sure you are aware, I think many of us who have posted on reddit on the controversial political subs and the conspiracy subs and the 911 subs and others, attract the attention of those government agents who try to discredit and belittle our posts, but I think it goes a lot further than that. I think they can then monitor our traffic by intercepting it on those cloud servers. They then can easily link that to devices and real world identity and I have had them make veiled threats and subtle references to things that only someone who knows me personally would know about.

Of course they would claim that is paranoid delusion but when we already know the lengths they go with surveillance and how they coerce us all into using devices that are location trackers etc, it would be verging on ridiculous to imagine that they would not use what is already existing technology to do a lot of other surveillance related intrusions like those I described.

Can saidit display "number online" for subs? by [deleted] in SaidIt

[–]raven9 2 insightful - 2 fun2 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

Subscriber count is one of those legacy issues from reddit that I hoped saidit would address and change.

The reddit subscriber count just serves to mislead the user that they are posting to a community of tens of thousands when in fact, the true figure of active users is probably only a few hundred. I think subs should provide an active user count based on the number of users that have posted, commented or voted in the past month and posts should provide a view count which is the number of people who clicked on that post.

"It provides tons of extra privacy to be hosted in switzerland."

How?

  1. My device establishes an encrypted https connection to the cloudflare server.
  2. When cloudflare receives that data, their end of that https protocol connection decrypts the data.
  3. Cloudflare now has the plaintext. They know what was sent, who sent it, the ip address it came from and probably a lot more than that.
  4. Cloudfare server now creates an https connection to the saidit server. Data is re-encrypted and sent to saidit server.

Privacy might only exist by direct connection to saidit servers but of course the intel agencies would use DDOS weapons to attack that setup to force you to choose the "protection" their cloud computing system offers.

"One of the purposes of voting/liking is to provide a *quick way** to engage a post without the full steps of writing a comment."*

People who can't be bothered, or are not capable of writing a proper response should be discouraged from interacting with a discussion topic, not encouraged. The upvote/downvote system is probably the biggest insult to intelligent debate that has ever existed and is not only perfect for shills, brigaders and forum sliders, it also gives the redneck with an IQ of 75 the same level of influence over the readability of a post as the intellectual who actually reads the post and the linked material and writes a thoughtful response and this surely is the reason so many reddit subs are little more than meme fests for the sheeple. Discussion topics for the intellectally challenged. Just look at the image, if it makes you go "hur...hur...hur...hur I agree with that", click upvote, else, click downvote. Well done, you just took part in a discussion, now scroll down to the next meme and repeat.
