So I went all out on the new place.
The problem with places like “Daily Kos” who make a new place for themselves is that every new feature….um yeah, it’s in your fucking face and you have no choice but to just take it along with the advertising they bannered above/in/popping out of it. I hate that shit. It’s bad enough you whore yourself out to advertisers of the lowest kind but working actively to cram their message/cause down my throat? Kill yourself, srsly.
Here is video of one Daily Kos “2.0” website user’s reaction after accessing the site for the first time:
Yeah, that’s accurate.

In a diary titled “The HB Gary Email That Should Concern Us All” at Daily Kos, Happy Rockefeller warns all of the “concern” one should have for somebody possibly rigging the blog system:
According to an embedded MS Word document found in one of the HB Gary emails, it involves creating an army of sockpuppets, with sophisticated “persona management” software that allows a small team of only a few people to appear to be many, while keeping the personas from accidentally cross-contaminating each other. Then, to top it off, the team can actually automate some functions so one persona can appear to be an entire Brooks Brothers riot online.
For those not “in the know”, here’s why this diary is a lollercaust of irony:
(WARNING: THE FOLLOWING LINK IS A LARGE PDF SO DON’T CLICK IF YOU HATE PDF’S!!!!)
….and if you do hate PDF’s, you’re racist.
Basically, the PDF shows a site from a while back where some high-up Daily Kos moderators and political consultants conspired to ban those they didn’t approve of arbitrarily invoking the “rules” at their leisure.

And if you can relay or set-up a bridge with Tor: http://www.torproject.org/docs…
It’s easy, a matter of pressing a button. No fancy work needed. The bridge is an “advanced” thing so don’t be discouraged, a relay is fine.
Million Man March on Tuesday organized by the youth….of whom I have a date with in IRC.
Masks down, Tor up….

East of Cairo, the Suez, protesters are prevailing and reports of a “massacre” by police are false.
Six protesters killed.
Government website ain’t gettin back up anytime soon and the “censor” ministry is as good as down as well.
Robert Gibbs said Egypt is “still a close ally of the U.S.” and since both mean it as being allies of each other at the top levels we obviously see that the lines are drawn.
Hillary is front running like she did when Tunisia fell urging the government not to crackdown on “peaceful” protesters but any activist knows all that is is a nod to crackdown but spin it by claiming those the police happened to crack down on were “the violent ones”.
We’ve done all we can do from our side on this, all that’s left now is to watch the people tear it down by using the means of communication that have been secured for them to organize.

Stand for freedom. Stand with Anonymous
To tyrants, the downtrodden are nameless.
Since its inception, the internet has provided new ways for people all over the world to exercise the rights of free speech, freedom of the press and freedom of assembly. These rights are not simply the benefits of a free society–they are the very means of preserving that society’s freedom. The recent increase in government interference with these freedoms coincides with the failure of the corporate media to fulfill their vital role in checking the abuse of authority. Censorship and journalistic abdication have left citizens unaware and unable to hold their governments accountable.
WikiLeaks has moved to fill the void left by traditional news media, providing the necessary information for citizens to hold their governments to account. Yet it has not been granted the legal protections generally afforded to journalists. Instead, the organization has been vilified and monetary support has been blocked by governments and private corporations. The vitriol aimed at WikiLeaks demonstrates an unsettling disregard for the fundamental freedom to exchange information and express ideas. Members of a free society must not allow information to be suppressed simply because it inconveniences those in power. We share the responsibility to defend vital liberties. The time to act is now.
We are Anonymous, a leaderless movement that has worked tirelessly to oppose all forms of Internet censorship worldwide, from DMCA abuses to government mandated content filters. Our initiatives include supporting dissenting groups in Iran, Zimbabwe and Tunisia, as well as waging the highly visible information battle against the Church of Scientology. We are now prepared to take the fight to the world stage. Join us on January 15th for the first in a series of global protests in defense of WikiLeaks and freedom of expression. Stand with us to defend your freedoms.
We Are Anonymous And So Are You
