1  Economy / Reputation / Reeeeeeeeee: nullius is a cunt on: November 25, 2020, 01:32:56 AM
"Bitcoin Forum" told me to create this topic if I'm unsatisfied. TBH I'm not sure... I just poured myself a very pleasantly fragrant drink so I'm quite satisfied really but at the same time kinda curious what the fuck was the purpose of creating a thread mentioning me and then deleting my post from it LOL. I guess I'll never know.

No self-mod and no rules here other than your post must be about nullius being a cunt.

Quote from: Bitcoin Forum
A reply of yours, quoted below, was deleted by the starter of a self-moderated topic. There are no rules of self-moderation, so this deletion cannot be appealed. Do not continue posting in this topic if the topic-starter has requested that you leave.

You can create a new topic if you are unsatisfied with this one. If the topic-starter is scamming, post about it in Scam Accusations.

What the fuck is this shit. I get my name pinged and end up in a self-mod thread with three ignored posts LOL.

Pro tip nullius: mentioning my nick over and over again is not gonna trick me into reading your rants so you might as well give it up. Gotta implement ignore in my notification thingy now, thanks for wasting my time.

Edit - I just realized that "Bitcoin Forum" doesn't say which thread the deleted post was in... it's this one: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5293022.0

I for one welcome our new monolith-planting overlords.

Seriously, what do you think this is? To me it seems like a harebrained idea of some hippie "artist".

Quote from: NPR
From a helicopter, officers from the Utah Department of Public Safety spotted a large metal monolith a single block of metal last week. It was sitting in Utah's Red Rock Country in the southeast. Officials have no idea how or when it got there or who might have placed it.
3  Other / Meta / Quote locked threads, 120-day merit total, custom themes, and other good stuff on: November 17, 2020, 03:45:48 PM
What if I told you that there is a magic browser extension that does all this:

  • Allows quoting posts from locked threads - full proper BBCode quotes, no gimmicks.
  • Allows quoting trust ratings into BBCode as well.
  • Provides shortcut buttons to include/exclude someone in your trust list.
  • Sums up sent/received merits on your (or anyone's) merit page for the current day, last 24 hours, and last 7/30/120 days.
  • Gives you a choice of alternative styling for Bitcointalk, including a dark theme.
  • Adds links under the MORE menu that you wish were always there - forum rules, merit info, trust system info, BBCode tips, etc.

You would probably think that I'm shilling BPIP browser extension and you'd be right. The reason I'm posting this subset of the extension's new features here in Meta is that all of the above does not depend on BPIP or any other external services and every feature is individually configurable so you can install the extension and turn on only the stuff that you're interested in. You can even download the extension and pick it apart to steal borrow the code if you're so inclined.

More details and installation links here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5224821

Some screenshots:

This does exactly what it says... copies BBCode into clipboard from a locked thread.

Another BBCode-to-clipboard feature - for trust ratings (see the button on the right side). The result looks like this:

smartcontracts100    2020-09-15    Reference    scammer part of Lauda gang

Options to include or exclude the user in your trust list. This screenshot also shows one of new themes created by ibminer.



Loading...

When you click the person+ or person- button on user profile it opens your trust list, adds the new entry to it, shows a message explaining what's going on, but doesn't automatically save it - you would need to review and save the change yourself. If a conflicting entry is found (for example you're trying to exclude a person whom you're currently including) the extension will not add the new entry and will show a message explaining the issue.



Loading...

Merit totals on each user's merit page.



And some extra links under the MORE menu that I wish were available to everyone. I realize that an extension used by a few dozen people doesn't really solve this problem but maybe someone will find this useful and it's not like you're paying extra for it Smiley

4  Other / Meta / Does the "defi" scam shit belong in Altcoin ANNs? on: November 01, 2020, 02:51:56 PM
I started reporting some threads to be moved from altcoin announcements to token announcements because they sounded like all the other useless tokens to me but there are so many of them that it gives me pause. Is there some exception for this new defi scam wave that I'm not aware of?

I'm talking about shit like this - it even has "[off]shi[f]t" in its name so don't give me any shit about it not being shit: [ANN] Offshift (XFT & zkUSD) Private offshore storage & DeFi protocol on ETH

I realize nobody can be bothered to care about altcoins but it hurts my OCD that we have two separate boards but no clear line between them.
5  Other / Meta / Merit source unapplication - Vlad2Vlad on: October 26, 2020, 02:40:53 PM
Just leaving this here for the next merit sorcery realignment.

IXCoin - a horrible shitcoin by any measure, dead website, no volume, etc - has the most merited (in 2020) ANN thread on Bitcointalk: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5284439.msg55453820#msg55453820

The reason is Vlad2Vlad who claims to be "Lead dev and CTO and CEO of IXcoin" and happens to be a merit source sending large amounts of merit in that thread. He's also doing the same thing in own thread shilling IXC: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=317658

I know the post quality is quite subjective but this looks like a massive conflict of interest and not the best use of source merits. Perhaps a different merit source can be selected for the altcoin boards who would prop up more than one shitcoin thread.
6  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Most popular altcoins on Bitcointalk. Kind of. Probably not really. on: October 26, 2020, 03:15:50 AM
I was trying to figure out which altcoins are most popular here on Bitcointalk but I think I ended up collecting a list of altcoins that are shilled in the weirdest ways. Even though thread bumping rules have been changed about a year ago to discourage low-value posts, there still seems to be some of that bumping going on.

Here is what I did:
  • Counted posts made in 2020 on altcoin and token announcement boards.
  • Counted users who made those posts.
  • Counted merits sent to those posts (again, only to posts made in 2020).
  • Calculated top 100 of threads by post count (see below) and another top 100 by merit count (see the second post of this thread).

7  Other / New forum software / Authorization bug on: October 22, 2020, 01:24:31 PM
Not sure if we're supposed to have one mega-thread for bug reports but I'll post this a separate thread as this bug seems horrible enough.

I was testing epochtalk moderator functions related to this: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5282883.msg55430312#msg55430312

So I logged in as a regular user (let's call the user "suchmoon", complete coincidence of course), opened two browser tabs (using Firefox; as I've reported previously it's impossible to open multiple tabs with the same user in Tor Browser), created a few posts. Then in tab 1 I logged out and logged in as an admin. A few minor things here: can't report my own post and seemingly can't just delete a post without it being reported, but that's not the issue here.

So I'm doing admin things in tab 1. Then switch to tab 2. Still shows me logged in as suchmoon. I click on a thread. I post in the thread. It still shows me logged in as suchmoon but the post's author is admin. I can report the post though so I do. I switch back to tab 1 and in the report queue it shows that the post was created by admin and reported by suchmoon. Keep in mind that both posting and reporting took place in one tab where the logged in user was shown as suchmoon. I have a feeling that there might be some API calls where the backend just trusts whatever user ID is coming through... or maybe not quite as bad, maybe just expired but otherwise valid authentication is being accepted. A bug in either case.

Edit - upon further digging it looks that the frontend sends the correct JWT bearer token in both tabs but the backend uses reporter_user_id from the payload. I don't know why that reporter_user_id is even there.
8  Other / Politics & Society / US Elections 2020 - very self such moderated on: October 18, 2020, 05:16:45 PM
Let's try to have an election thread without the usual P&S garbage. So a few local rules:

BADecker, franky1, anyone else who can't stay on topic - I'm sure you can find many other threads to derail.

On topic: facts and discussion on early voting, turnout, exit polls, results, etc.

Borderline on topic: election issues as long as it's factual and about 2020 November federal elections.

Off topic: merits (or lack thereof) of candidates, political parties, political views, etc. Anything not directly related to elections. Personal attacks. Complaining about this thread (start a REEEE if you need to).

I will likely delete posts that are only partially off topic - don't take this personally, just edit out the off topic part and repost. There is definitely no lack of threads around here to discuss all that other stuff.



Nov 2 Update

Record-breaking early voting (from targetsmart):

I'll start off with early voting numbers: https://targetearly.targetsmart.com/

Unsurprisingly the numbers are way way up. It's almost as if there is some off topic event or circumstance (I'm just kidding, it's the friggin' pandemic) influencing the turnout.

I'm assuming users who have "Never" as their last active date, like this here:

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=2237312

... are mostly those who got hit with the "evil IP" fee and didn't want to pay it.

Edit 2020-10-17: Probably not quite as simple. "Evil" (proxybanned) users can have a valid active date so some of them might be in the "No Login" and some in the "No Posts" column below.

  • No Login - Users who never logged in, i.e. literally have "Never" as their last active date.
  • No Posts - Users who never made any posts (includes the "No Login" users).
  • Banned - how many users of those who registered during that month have been banned so far (not the number of bans during the month). May or may not have posted - probably did though, why else would they be banned.
  • Active - users who made at least one post in the last 30 days, i.e. mid September to mid October 2020.

Here are month-by-month numbers of total new registrations vs evil the stuff mentioned above:

10  Other / Meta / Timeouts and other errors with Tor Browser, Cloudflare, Bitcointalk, and Alt-Svc on: October 11, 2020, 04:38:43 PM
Background sob story, you can safely skip to the next part

For the last few weeks I've been having a horrible time browsing Bitcointalk. It seemed like every other click would result in a random secure connection error, or a time out. I'm using a Tor Browser, which is otherwise excellent. Requesting a new a new Tor circuit usually helps for a few seconds. It got so bad that I would have to request a new circuit on e.g. the watchlist page, then open 10-20 threads in new tabs as quickly as I can so that I could read them. There was very little chance to get to the next page in a thread without getting a new circuit.

tl;dr:

I'd like to know if anyone has experienced any Tor issues lately. For me the problem went away when I disabled Alt-Svc in Tor Browser. I wouldn't recommend messing around with Alt-Svc unless you know exactly what you're doing. I'm just curious if this was some unique-to-me clusterfuck or a more widespread issue.

What is Alt-Svc?

The Alt-Svc HTTP response header is used to advertise alternative services through which the same resource can be reached. An alternative service is defined by a protocol/host/port combination.

That doesn't tell us anything interesting. The best I can figure out is that this can be useful in some load-balancing scenarios. One nasty thing that needs to be noted about this is that the URL in the browser doesn't change so you would never know that your browser is connecting to a different site than the one shown in the address field.

Enter Cloudflare

I know we all love Cloudflare like we love our families, i.e. we don't have a choice. It's essentially Internet 3.0 and it sits between us and many of the sites we use, including Bitcointalk. It also tends to fiddle with things that it shouldn't, such as DNS and yes, the Alt-Svc header. Basically: if Cloudflare thinks that you're coming from Tor it will send Alt-Svc header to your browser telling it to connect to a Cloudflare onion (<somerandomstring>.onion) site instead.

Onion sites are great in theory as they exist "inside" the Tor network so you can connect to them without using Tor exit nodes, thus avoiding some surveillance and attack vectors. However there seems to be something broken with the Cloudflare onion implementation or the way Tor Browser handles it or both, at least in my case. I can't think of anything wrong on my side though. It's a vanilla install of Tor Browser on an otherwise empty VM.

Solution

Unfortunately I don't know how to debug this issue or what the proper solution would be. Since I'm not concerned about exit nodes I simply disabled the Alt-Svc option in Tor Browser. It's a relatively new feature (I believe Cloudflare started doing it a couple of years ago but stable versions of Tor Browser had it initially disabled; not sure when the option was enabled) and I don't see any benefit for it when connecting to a known HTTPS site.

Anyone experiencing similar issues? With Tor Browser or without? Is it really onion-related or just some bizarre coincidence?

Facebook has banned all accounts linked to the QAnon conspiracy theory movement from its platforms.

OTOH, it's quite possible that the whole QAnon is just BADecker with a bunch of sockpuppets, in which case we're fine.

Now seriously, if someone can explain what the fuck is making those people believe such nonsense I'd appreciate that. Don't tell me they all live in Flint and drink tap water.

QAnon is a conspiracy theory that says President Trump is waging a war against elite Satan-worshipping paedophiles.

  • You made a post and someone thought it's a good post, or perhaps someone clicked the wrong button.

It doesn't mean that:

  • Anyone else thinks it's a good post.
  • Anyone likes your post or you.
  • Anyone agrees with your post or with you.
  • Your post is right or righteous.
  • You're not a shitposter.
  • You're trustworthy.
  • You're not dumb.
  • Your post doesn't break the forum rules.
  • You'll get any more merits for that post or any post.
  • You should try making more such posts.
  • You should pester other users for merit.

Just some inspirational-motivational thoughts for your Monday. May or may not be based on a true story.

You know what happens when an AI says "too much work"? Yep, humans have to do it.

So here is a list of the most referenced posts within Bitcointalk. A reference is a quote or a link inside a post (not e.g. in a signature). There is at least one known issue - because human - the first post of a thread is counted separately from a link to the thread without the "msg" part. That's how the rules topic appears at positions #2 and #4. (fixed)

Update 2020-10-02: Excluded references within the same thread, and references between the posts of the same user. This removed a lot of spammy threads. The original list is here.

Update 2020-10-04: Fixed a bug in finding the first post of the thread, which was causing the "posts of the same user" condition to not work in some cases.

Update 2020-10-12: Added "users" column to show the number of users who posted the link.

15  Economy / Reputation / Thread for the insufferable twit Timelord2067 to bitch about suchmoon on: September 29, 2020, 12:07:03 AM
The aforementioned twit is too chickenshit to create a thread to bitch about me, choosing instead to follow me around and feed into various doxings as he goes, so being the generous and helpful person that I am I decided to help him out one last time.

@Timelord2067, feel free to bitch here as much as you want. And given that you now have a dedicated place for that, I will no longer feel bad reporting your off topic bullshit in other threads as off topic bullshit.

Let me start it off: in grotesque expressions of hostility that still baffle me, Timelord2067 appears to be trying to tell me that he holds a grudge because I offered him some help last year and it didn't meet his expectations (I bet you're shocked how that could have happened given my tremendous help with this thread). For which I would apologize if he had communicated those expectations, such as his inexplicable fantasy that it was a "project" we were working on. Fuck it, I'll still apologize: Timelord2067 - I'm sorry. Could you please forgive me and forget that I exist and stop derailing unrelated threads with that. Post as many trust ratings as you want in any color that you want, I honestly no longer care.

Feel free to air any other grievances below (or above if you're one of those weirdos using the "show most recent posts at the top" option).

The topic is Timelord2067's grievances so if anyone has anything else to moan about - create your own fucking thread or piss me off sufficiently so that I create one for you.
16  Other / Politics & Society / RAGE: Bob Woodward's second book about Trump on: September 10, 2020, 01:15:36 AM
Bob Woodward published his first book about Trump, titled "Fear", in 2018: https://www.simonandschuster.com/books/Fear/Bob-Woodward/9781501175527

Next week he's releasing his second book "Rage": https://www.simonandschuster.com/books/Rage/Bob-Woodward/9781982131739

To me the most astonishing thing about this second book isn't really the salacious but unsurprising stuff about Trump blatantly lying about coronavirus etc, but the fact that he allowed to be interviewed and even taped. Woodward has recordings of Trump actually saying stupid things that will no doubt play non-stop on cable news from now until the election day, or at least until Trump says something even more stupid.

Why did the very stable genius agree to be interviewed by the author of "Fear", which was already very unflattering? I'm sure there is a great 4D chess strategy here, please enlighten me.
17  Other / Meta / Revoke self-moderating privileges from korner and other hypertrolls on: September 09, 2020, 07:05:17 PM
If we're not banning korner's alts can we at least prevent them from creating self-modded threads? They create accusations, even trust flags, then routinely delete posts in the subsequent discussions. It's quite clear that they just abuse the self-mod feature as another way to troll people (and spam via indirect notification PMs LOL).

Taking self-mod privilege away would probably remove a large part of the incentive for korner (and other proven hypertrolls like cryptohunter) to keep creating those threads. And yes, I know we shouldn't feed the trolls to begin with, etc, but honestly can we expect every user to be aware of all these disruptive sockpuppets. There should be a more direct punishment for abusing a forum feature in this way. Right now since ban evasion can't be proven to moderators' satisfaction there are basically no consequences for this. You can't even report it.

For example:
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5215552 now has 13 posts, used to be 90+: https://loyce.club/archive/topics/521/5215552.html

TheDonBuja (temp-banned?)

Now there is a bunch of others:
Kamilaz (temp-banned?)
benkhalil3
iwnlfr (temp-banned?)
aiguy (temp-banned)
etc

Edit - a few more found by LoyceV:
KimberlyCon (temp-banned?)

daviebcoys (banned)

These are kind of spammy but perhaps not as egregious as the spammers above:
FYeah [hf]
Sakhill [hf]
FaceTehWind [hf]
aldanstep1 (banned)
LeDonna (banned)
PhoNam (banned)
Detrix

Not sure what's going on, perhaps actmyname is testing our vigilance (Edit: apologies to Timelord2067 for an inappropriate joke), or the mythical AI is finally here (one of the users is called "aiguy" LOL), or maybe just a bored shitposter trying to earn a merit through sheer volume. At any rate, reporting those posts individually seems like a massive waste of time for everyone involved so perhaps a mod or an admin could check patrol and nuke them, TYVM.



Edit
It turned out to be a (likely scammy) money-making "method" initiated on hackforums. Users marked with [hf] above are suspected to have posted in the hackforums thread but most of the listed users are likely participants of the scheme.

Do to fact i have nothing to do right now i decided to start a betting service, my fee is only 10% of winnings.

I will create bets and people will bet against each other and i will hold the funds in escrow .

Quote
Nope i don't trust anyone to escrow, so i will do escrow ... i am putting my reputation on this small betting biz ...

This is a user account created in 2015, recently woke up, has one DT green trust rating from 2015. Not quite escrow material.

Edit - clarification: I'm not claiming the account changed hands, just pointing out the lack of trading history (or any forum presence) between 2016 and 2020.

Edit2:

May - June ... Lost all my savings at the casinos after lockdown do to fact i entered a depression
