7  Other / Politics & Society / The devil, you say? Satanists say they're peaceful sect on: September 08, 2014, 02:01:42 PM
http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2014/09/06/detroit-satanists-say-theyre-peaceful-sect/15219129/


Quote
The Satanic Temple on Saturday marked the launch of its first chapter outside New York. But leaders say they don't worship Satan. They don't practice cannibalism, or sacrifice people or animals.

"It's peaceful," said Jex Blackmore, 32, local leader and part of the temple's executive ministry. "The idea of sacrifice specifically is to appease some demon or some god, and that's a supernatural belief that we don't subscribe to."

Who this Satan is?

Quote
The Rev. Chris Yaw of St. David's Episcopal Church in Southfield said Satanists worshiping Satan actually is quite rare; instead, it tends to be a "back-to-nature kind of thing."

He said the Bible is "really sketchy on who this person Satan is," and that the red pitchforks, horns and goat heads were all added long after the Christian Bible was completed. Visit the Satanic Temple's website, thesatanictemple.com, and similar imagery abounds.

"The challenge of Christianity, that has been dominant religion in this country, is to be accepting and loving of all people, and whatever religion they want to practice," Yaw said. "Jesus didn't give me the right to judge other people."

Are they really that bad?

Quote
Blackmore said the temple's plans for Michigan include offering same-sex wedding ceremonies and advocating for women's rights — in particular, opposing on religious grounds the informed consent laws requiring that women receiving abortions be given certain information. She also is working on plans to volunteer at local animal shelters and provide other needed community service in Detroit.

I know there are a lot that wanted to join the Bitcoin religion and worship satoshi , but are there any members on this board thinking of joining these guys?

8  Other / Politics & Society / Putin at war with the internet.. who is going to win? on: August 08, 2014, 02:41:43 PM
Seems that the putin bear is doing everything in his power to try and control the internet , where did he get all his inspiration from I wonder..
But he seems he will go beyond anything else judging by the moves he has done only in the last year

Let's recapitulate some of the latest moves:

1) Crack the tor protocol
http://www.bbc.com/news/technology-28526021

Quote
Russia has offered 3.9m roubles ($110,000; £65,000) in a contest seeking a way to crack the identities of users of the Tor network.
The Russian interior ministry made the offer, saying the aim was "to ensure the country's defence and security".


2) War on bloggers:

http://www.bbc.com/news/technology-28583669

Quote
It means bloggers with more than 3,000 daily readers must register with the mass media regulator, Roskomnadzor, and conform to the regulations that govern the country's larger media outlets.

http://www.theguardian.com/world/2014/jul/31/russia-controls-blogosphere-new-law

3) Again with the bitcoin ban

http://www.coindesk.com/russian-ministry-finance-drafts-bill-banning-bitcoin/

Seems like this time is bit more serious but hell , try and ban it mr bear

4) Anonymous online payments

Quote
(Legislative initiative 428896-6 [ru]) would place new limits on online money transfers. This draft law would raise limits on anonymous online financial transactions and ban all international online financial transactions, where the electronic money operator (e.g., PayPal, Yandex.Dengi, WebMoney) does not know the client’s legal identity. The legislation also raises operating costs for NGOs, requiring them to report on every three thousand dollars spent in foreign donations. (Currently, NGOs must report on every six thousand such dollars.)

The proposed restrictions on anonymous online money transfers could be significant. Currently in Russia, one can deposit up to 1,200 dollars into a single anonymous online wallet, and one can pay out almost 450 dollars from that account in a single transaction. Under the new legislation, Russians wouldn’t be able to spend more than 450 dollars in a whole calendar month from any one anonymous online money account, and single-day transactions would be limited to just under 30 dollars (1000 rubles).


Funny how this was quoted as an "anti terrorist" move.

Now to the more severe ones

5) Websites must inform Russian authorities and store every move an user makes on the website in question

The first of the three bills (Legislative initiative 428884-6 [ru]) creates new requirements for mandatory archives and notifications, granting the federal government wide jurisdiction. The most concerning article of the bill stipulates that “individuals or legal entities” who “[organize] the dissemination of information and (or) the exchange of information between Internet users are obligated to store all information about the arrival, transmission, delivery, and processing of voice data, written text, images, sounds, or other kinds of action” that occur when using their website. At all times, data archives must include the most recent six months of activity.

It appears that this obligation would apply to the owners and operators of websites and services ranging from multinational services like Facebook to small community blogs and discussion platforms.

Website “organizers” must also “inform” (уведомить) Russian security services when users first begin using their sites, and whenever users “exchange information.” Taken literally, this requirement could create a nearly impossible task for administrators of blogs, social media sites, and other discussion platforms with large quantities of users.


6) No more anonymous wifi
Medvedev signs order banning anonymous Wi-Fi
http://en.itar-tass.com/russia/744055

Quote
Customers of Internet cafes and users of publicly offered Wi-Fi will have to provide operators with proof of identity, such as a driving license, by SMS or a special online access form, according to a statement on the Communication Ministry’s website.


7) The government can block your website with a single move.. to protect the children from nazi extremists and terrorists Wink

https://www.techdirt.com/articles/20140313/14025726571/russia-using-internet-censorship-laws-to-block-websites-opposition-candidate.shtml
https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2014/03/russia-blocks-access-major-independent-news-sites


Cool You have data of russian citizens on your server? That data must be hosted in russia alone

http://www.reuters.com/article/2014/07/04/us-russia-internet-bill-restrictions-idUSKBN0F91SG20140704

Quote
The law will mean that from 2016, all Internet companies will have to move Russian data onto servers based in Russia or face being blocked from the web. That would likely affect U.S.-based social networks such as Facebook, analysts say.

Coming after new rules requiring blogs attracting more than 3,000 daily visits to register with a communications watchdog and a regulation allowing websites to be shut without a court order, critics say the law is part of a wave of censorship.

Putin, an ex-KGB officer who has called the Internet a "CIA project", denied he was restricting web freedoms, saying his main concern was protecting children from indecent content.




9  Other / Politics & Society / Federalization : Good for Ukraine but bad for Siberia on: August 06, 2014, 12:04:31 PM
Of course everyone that reads this sub-forum is aware of the plans Moscow would love to put in practice in Ukraine.
Many Russians officials argue that this is the only way to go...federalization..

But things change radically when it's about Russian territory:
A very intersecting read:

http://www.rferl.org/content/russia-separatism-rally-siberia/26515418.html

Quote
Russians, he said, may begin to ask "Why can there be separatism in Donetsk, and if that's fine, why can't there also be separatism in Russia, in Siberia?" 

Of course the most active pro Russian members here (247robot , Nemo or Balthazar) will rush to find their own news version of this so I'm going to help their search:

Those are articles from the Russian press about the Siberia march:

http://ria.ru/cj/20140801/1018486281.html
http://www.newsru.com/russia/01aug2014/siberiamarch.html

Yeah , surprise , they got deleted

The federal communications monitoring service has sent a letter demanding the interview be deleted for violating a recently passed law against "calls to mass unrest, extremist activities or participation in illegal public events".

Quote
Russia's prosecutor general has issued warnings to 14 media outlets covering the protest under the country's extremism law, and blocked an event page for the march on Russia's most popular social network. The editor of Slon.ru, which was forced by the prosecutor general to remove an interview with Loskutov, later argued in a Facebook post that the article had not been in violation of the extremism law because it did not name a specific time or place. It also noted that the activists had not yet been given permission for the march.

10  Other / Meta / Moderation in "Politics & Society" on: July 20, 2014, 07:55:34 PM
I wonder if there is any moderation in this section anymore...
The section has become a trashcan of threads started by 247crypto

He started 9 separate threads in the last two days that cover only one subject (the flight mh17) while we have already two threads on this subject

Further more his threads are pure garbage with one picture or link op and could easily fit as normal posts in the other two.

Is there a way to merge those posts and clean up the sub-forum?
11  Other / Politics & Society / Anti-Vaccination Movement - bringing diseases back to life on: June 20, 2014, 05:29:01 AM
The United States Anti-Vaccination Movement is composed of a variety of individuals ranging from former doctors who should know better, to semi-celebrities who have no medical training, to anti-government conspiracy theorists who distrust anything that the government says. They all hold onto the mistaken belief that autism is caused by receiving childhood vaccines.

In 2007 there was an increase in celebrities promoting anti-vaccination rhetoric. Because of their celebrity status they appeared on several television shows and published multiple books advising parents not to vaccinate their children. This has led to an increase in the number of vaccine preventable illnesses as well as an increase in the number of vaccine preventable deaths.

http://www.jennymccarthybodycount.com/Anti-Vaccine_Body_Count/Home.html


Another article:

http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2014/04/06/anti-vaccine-movement-is-giving-diseases-a-2nd-life/7007955/


Quote
Recent measles outbreaks in New York, California and Texas are examples of what could happen on a larger scale if vaccination rates dropped, says Anne Schuchat, the CDC's director of immunizations and respiratory diseases. Officials declared measles, which causes itchy rashes and fevers, eradicated in the United States in 2000. Yet this year, the disease is on track to infect three times as many people as in 2009. That's because in most cases people who have not been vaccinated are getting infected by others traveling into the United States. Then, Schuchat says, the infected spread it in their communities.


A bit harsher one:

12  Other / Politics & Society / Sexual violence in UK gangs 'similar to war zones' according to BBC on: June 16, 2014, 07:13:06 AM
While browsing through newspapers I run across this one:

http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-27815220
Why sexual violence in UK gangs 'similar to war zones'

Just the title was enough to make me curios about it.


Quote
London has more than 200 gangs made up of about 3,500 members, according to the latest estimate by the Metropolitan Police.
Some of those involved are girls, but they have a different role from the male gang members, says Lola Mustapha, youth ambassador for the Safer London Foundation.
"They're not really fighting, they are being sexually exploited and used as tools," she says.
In many cases, she adds, "a gang might kidnap and rape the girlfriend or sister of a rival to punish him

https://www.linkedin.com/pub/lola-mustapha/51/282/b08


I want to know the opinions of a few UK residents on this.
If this is true and you have heard of so many cases or it's just another article to drive clicks or this girl "Lola" wanting to make the headlines.

Probably most of you are familiar with http://coingen.io/.

You choose a crappy name , one logo , 0.05 btc and you get a clone coin.
But how about we make this easier and free and accessible for anyone , and also end the madness once for all.

How about we create a coingenbot that creates and publishes altcoins based on a list. We'll feed him some wikipedia list of  old coins, fictional planets , countries  ,  or the imdb or iafd actors /pornstars database.

So , there will be no need for fans to wait for JennaJamesoncoin , YodaCoin , thehobbitdesolationofsmaugcoin  more than a few days.
This would be one hell of a battle royal....

Takers?

Edit.
Coins will be generated free of charge , there will be no need to pay any fee.!

I would like to ask you , since we have members from other countries here:

2) Would still agree withit  if those drilling will be done close to the community where you leave?

18  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / CoinValidation , will it work? The way to "sanitize" bitcoin ! on: November 14, 2013, 09:22:05 AM
I need to update this:

I DON'T SUPPORT THE FOLLOWING SCENARIO!
It's just a topic where you can debate if it viable , or if it's gonna be embraced.
Hold your carrots!


It all started with :
http://www.forbes.com/sites/kashmirhill/2013/11/13/sanitizing-bitcoin-coin-validation/

And next moment we have the reactions :
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=332918.0

Well , I went to :
https://coinvalidation.com/ , downloaded the pdf, for users , saw page with 3 rows and 100 words and nothing solid.

I think that we're got the wrong impression here. I saw the word "addresses" to many times in the forbes article and then this  paragraph in the pdf files:
"We have developed tools and relationships that provide Bitcoin businesses with a full “know your customer” compliance suite. "

From my point of view I think the word Coin is misleading. My opinion is that the project is aimed at the addresses.
And I see a way it might actually work , but first let's assume those guys have a plan , and they have an ace in their hand.
Something like a big company wanting to start accepting bitcoins but concerned about the mess around it.

So , Walmart is announcing:
 "We accept bitcoins""From cointrusted addresses only"

Most of the people will jump in ,and how can I get and use a cointrusted address?
It's simple ,

1) Go to any trusted exchangers , verify your identity and buy bitcoins which will be sent to a new address you specify
The address has to have a 0 balance and no previous history.

2) Now , you can go to Walmart and buy with bitcoins ,  from that address , because Walmart has a white list common with those exchangers and only people on that list can make purchases.
Nothing new from "we only accept Visa and Mastercard , not AE"

The results will be something like:
-Walmart knows that you are a verified customers (they can have your id)
-People when exchanging bitcoins know that this guy has some verified papers.
-You know that you actually have some kind of ownership on that address and can prove in court that "You John , on 11/1/12013 sent to Michael 245 Bitcoins"

And on the surface everybody is happy , right?
People who don't want to enroll , are (Huh) not forced to enroll.

And I have that BIGGGG feeling I'm missing something right?

a) Number of transactions (unique) per day:

b) Number of unicque bitcoin adresses used

My opinion (if those charts are accurate) is that we're going in the wrong way , instead of building a currency we're collecting stamps.

PS. I do use bitcoins for selling stuff. (doesn't matter what kind of stuff)
