You may or may not have heard about the latest easily-abused tool in “online spam / hate speech”, BotSentinel dotcom, but if you have encountered the site you likely know that its primary stated purpose (it’s in the name, duh) is to stop the bots. You know, the bots — the accounts who say thingsContinue reading ““BotSentinel dotcom”, which is another online tool in the toolbox of the fascists, is like bringing 3rd party, Nextdoor-style moderation to Twitter. Sounds good?”

Nextdoor dotcom – real-estate value manipulation, fake local politics, scammers, racism, stalking/harassing of unhoused, slander, Parler gateway, etc
I don’t plan to spend a whole lot more time or space discussing the stalker/vigilante/fascist neighborhood surveillance network ‘Nextdoor’, but thought I would post something of a summary analysis about what I’ve learned and what I feel others should be aware of about this drama and chaos-filled “social” network, which has already been associated withContinue reading “Nextdoor dotcom – real-estate value manipulation, fake local politics, scammers, racism, stalking/harassing of unhoused, slander, Parler gateway, etc”
Gamestop? Yes, lets increase a stealthy military recruiter’s stock prices to own the short sellers.
Let me see if I understand this. A mob of Reddit users from a sub-Reddit known for alt-right membership, Trumpism, video games, and… investment strategies, decided to make Short Sellers hurt by INCREASING the value of their held stocks through small dollar investments made en masse via social media. Gamestop is the video games retailerContinue reading “Gamestop? Yes, lets increase a stealthy military recruiter’s stock prices to own the short sellers.”

I knew I picked a good time to abandon Facebook
https://www.fastcompany.com/90510515/facebooks-zuckerberg-backs-trump-over-dorsey-in-twitter-fact-check-feud As MUCH of Facebook’s success is built on hosting the wildest fantasies of online propagandists, fascist governments and their intelligence services, religious extremists, theocracies, and censorship-heavy regimes, as well as what launched them in the first place — the domestic right-wing clickbait and propaganda ads that helped elect Donald Trump, which we blame onContinue reading “I knew I picked a good time to abandon Facebook”
No, #generalaction isn’t a neoliberal campaign strategy, nor were Marches for Causes
And other absurdities, intentionally failure-oriented activism strategies, silly commentary, yadda yadda. Today, the intrepid Record Correcting Blue Wave accounts that we’ve all been promised began raging across the social sphere, right on someone’s mark. Today was probably the start of their pay cycle and hourly or per-word billing requirements. So far, I’ve been told –Continue reading “No, #generalaction isn’t a neoliberal campaign strategy, nor were Marches for Causes”
Scheduled Obsolescence? Feature or Bug?
When the capitalists have their way at the late-stage marketplace and their business plans come to fruition, it looks very much like online multiplayer gaming, if you were to compare aspects of material and immaterial(real-world and virtual) capitalist production systems and their exploitative economics, durability, lifespan, etc. For example, everyone’s favorite cellphone game, Pokemon Go,Continue reading “Scheduled Obsolescence?

Civil war? Naa, not in this America
There won’t be a civil war 2.0 in this country because the neoliberals and neoconservatives will wind up solving their minor differences, discovering their true synergies and overlapping economic and ideological goals, and they will wind up hugging it out and uniting against all that is good and wholesome in the world.

So much has happened to everything since last I updated this, and there are so many terrible, terrifying things going on inside Facebook, that I am removing myself from that network for good and beginning a new kind of online presence that I hope will be more on my own terms, and healthier. Right now, IContinue reading “Switching social media gears”
