Stjórnmálaspjallið á Facebook og Útvarp Saga í Útvarpinu

Á Facebook er að finna hóp sem kallar sig “stjórnmálaspjallið”. Þetta er auðvitað rangnefni, þar sem ekki eru rædd nein stjórnmál þarna. Í þessum hóp er svo til eingöngu verið að ræða útlendingahatur, skáldaða hluti sem ný-nasistar og aðrir fasista og öfgahópar hafa skáldað upp til þess að kenna útlendingum og múslímum um bæði á Íslandi og erlendis.

Þessi hópur er stofnaður og rekin af fólki sem eru ekkert annað en öfgafullir kristnir einstaklingar. Þetta eru öfgamenn og eins og aðrir öfgamenn þá er þetta fólk hættulegt lýðræðinu á Íslandi og öryggi almennings. Það er enginn tilgangur að reyna að rökræða við þetta fólk, það tekur ekki neinum rökum og hefur ekki áhuga á því að breytast. Fyrr breytist fjallið í hæð áður en það gerist.

Íslandi er síðan rekin haturs útvarpsstöð undir nafninu “Útvarp Saga”, gengur þessi útvarpsstöð á ný-nasista hatri og öðru slíku ógeði í garð útlendinga að það ætti fyrir löngu síðan að vera búið að loka þessari útvarpsstöð með dómsúrskurði. Því miður nýtur þessi útvarpsstöð samúðar innan íslenska stjórnkerfisins og fær því að vera í loftinu. Það er staðreynd sem er skelfileg og ljóst er að lýðræðið á Íslandi er nú þegar orðið veikt vegna öfgafullra skoðana sem er að finna innan stjórnkerfisins. Hinn almenni Íslendingur verður ekki mikið var við þetta, nema að hann geri þau “mistök” að eignast maka sem kemur frá ríki sem er frá landi sem er utan EES/ESB og fólk fær meira að finna fyrir því ef umræddur maki er frá Afríku ríki sem telst vera fátækt eða ekki í lagi samkvæmt “íslenskum stöðlum” (sem eru bölvað rugl).

Útvarp Saga og Stjórnmálaspjallið ættu að gera íslendingum þann greiða að loka án tafar og stjórnendur viðkomandi eiga að biðja útlendinga og íslendinga afsökunar á þeirri þjáningu sem þeir hafa valdið með þessu kjaftæði sem hefur komið frá þeim á undanförnum árum.

Facebook continues to allow violence videos

Facebook continues to allow violence videos on its website. At the same time it is banning something harmless as nudity on it, with a full force. Earlier I reported a video showing a women in hands of Al Qaeda or the fundamental extremist of ISIS (or what they are calling them self today). Daily Mail has news on this video and it can be read here (Warning! The video can be seen on Daily Mail website. I do not know if it is the full or edited version!). This video has been removed from YouTube where it first appeared (I think). The story with Facebook is different, they refused to remove this video and claimed it didn’t break any rules. The shameful excuse of claim can be read here.

Facebook.report.system.24.02.2015

This is shameful behaviour of Facebook and goes to show that they are not taking there responsibilities as social network seriously. For this I suggest a fine of no less then 300 million euros by the law authorities in Europe and U.S.

Update

Video of women being executed by terrorists doesn’t violate Facebook Community standards.

Facebook.report.system.24.02.2015

Violence is no problem at Facebook, in fact, they don’t give a shit. Only nudity and human kindness is (that is removed right away).

The new nude image scandal

So there is new nude image “scandal” going on. What is the scandal is not that people posing nude in front of the camera. That is normal in my view and I don’t care about it. What is troubling is the idea that people think they have privacy on-line. It doesn’t matter who you are, when you are on-line, you don’t have privacy and you should not expect it. If you use any on-line service (name does not matter) you can expect what you keep there is going to leak. The reason is that security is weak and there are always going to be bad security flaws, bad employees, bad people, or some other factors that I don’t know about.

Digital material is easy to move around. Treat it as such. If you want to keep your stuff private. Don’t put it on-line on any on-line service. It is a rule that works. This is also basic security. Also forget about computer repair stores, they leak this type of images all the time. Here is one examples from few years ago.

Verizon staff arrested for stealing customer’s nude pics (The Register, Year 2012)

If you are a celebrity and into taking nude pictures of your self. Don’t put them on-line. This is also a good rule if you are just normal person. That way you can keep your privacy up to a point (remember, digital material is easy to move around).

How I got banned from Cracked.com

I am not the type of man to take things silently or just roll over when I see an opinion that is wrong or not based in facts. I also don’t take orders from people that try to silence me in such way. As can be seen on this blog here (mostly in Icelandic for the past 9 years). People who tell me to shut-up, as was done in this case (in August-2013) are the worst, what is worse then that is the fact that I got blocked from that on twitter because I did criticize her favourite actress or something of that nature. I don’t accept to be shut out of something that is completely legitimate for me to do. This more ever so applies to a person that is writing for a widely read internet website (one of the largest) of the western world.

How did I find out that I was banned today, I was trying to answer this message that I got.

B.Storm.message.18.05.2014
The message that I was trying to answer. I will replay to it at the end of this article just in case. Screen-shot that I took.

cracked.com.banned.18.05.2015.2
Only to get this message telling me that I cannot answer this message because I have been banned. Screen-shot that I took.

The origin of whole thing

In August-2013 I made this comment on the Twitter profile of one of new Cracked.com new writer. Her name is Amanda Mannen and is one of the lower paid writers on cracked staff (in accordance with that companies policies in those matters). She has also made it clear that she is an radical feminist on twitter with all that comes with it. The message that she blocked me on twitter was this one here.

Manna_Festo.orginal.twitter.message.august.13-14.2013
Nothing to see here, this twitter is boring. Screen-shot that I took.

The message that I left on this cracked article is equally boring. The message that I left was this one and this is rightful criticism of what is being written on cracked.com website by this women. Screen-shot that I took.

cracked.comments.main.comment.jonfr.17.05.2014
The main comment that I left on cracked.com website and that got me banned from it. Screen-shot that I took.

I also left the following reposes in the subsequent trolling festal that took place following my criticism on her writing.

cracked.comments.main.comments.3-5
cracked.comments.main.comments.6-8
cracked.comments.main.comments.9-12

cracked.comments.main.comments.19
cracked.comments.main.comments.20-24
cracked.comments.main.comments.36a
cracked.comments.main.comments.36b
This are all screen-shots I took. If you are wondering why I did this, the reason is simple. I learned over the years of my internet existence not to trust some people who have editorial powers. I did discover back in the year 2011 (or 2012) that Cracked.com was one of those places not to be trusted.

My comment is also so dangerous that it was reported and then she [Amanda Mannen] mocked it on twitter as can be see here [images below]. She viewed here own opinion in a public space and as such that is not below or above criticism. She also allows her self to criticize me. Something that I can deal with, as can clearly be seen. I at least did not block her until few days ago

Manna_Festo.comment.on.comment.1
Manna_Festo.comment.on.comment.2
Mocking, mocking. As can be clearly seen. I have blocked her from my twitter. Screen-shot that I took.

It is also interesting to notice that she claims that I said that she hates sex. As can be seen on my text above I never claimed that. I did just assoiate her with certain radical type of radical feminism that exists today. I never once mention sex or anything like that in my comment. She is making up my views here, this is not surprising, since this type of people are well known to do this. I have seen it many times before, and I am going to see it many times again.

The criticism angle

Cracked.com website allows it self to criticise many things in its writing. Anything from films, jobs, people, careers and so on. The list is long and I am not going to name it all. This is all wrapped up in a humorous way and made consumers friendly and easy to read. This is all well thought out, this is commonly known as link baiting [No Wikipedia information on this yet]. This form of writing has the only purpose to get people to click on links on-line and generate advertisement revenue. So Cracked.com criticises most things under the moon, unless it gets them a call from the Secret service as has happened already.

What happens when you criticise the people and what is being written on Cracked website (they don’t use robots yet). Its quite simple. It gets you banned from Cracked.com website forever. That is what I can clearly and rightfully testify about. Since I made the attempt (see picture above) to criticise the cracked.com writer staff. All I got was a ban from the website, what they got in return was more criticism on my own platform (this website). Since I refuse to be stopped by this single ban. While people jump on me and tell me that I am holding a grudge, it is worth noticing that they are publishing a public content for everyone to read. Such material needs to be criticised, even if it is in humour form. It is sad that it is good to say a joke about everything, it is also perfectly acceptable to criticise everything and the people behind it. Even on there own website, were it should be taking place. Since what they write is read by a lot of people and it has effect on a lot of people opinions. Cracked.com parent company has been criticized for its behaviour back in the year 2008, that can be read here.

The cracked.com ban

What is interesting is that cracked.com not only user name banned me. They in whole IP banned me forever. As can be seen here on this image.

cracked.banned.forum.18.05.2014
Banned at IP level. Screen-shot that I took.

This has interesting angle in it self. Since as can seen above my message that I written was not ban worthy. So I guess they ban by the rule “when we fucking feel like it”. Criticism being evil at cracked.com (it means that you are not good consumer doing your job!) the response becomes understandable. It also has dark prediction for this website and its future.

The future

For the future. I am sure that cracked.com and other related websites are going to vanish in all sense of the word at the end of current internet bubble that is now ongoing. It is going to collapse one day and when that it happen it is going to be spectacular collapse, since the bubble today is massive. It is many times magnitude orders larger then last internet bubble from 1998 to 2001 at it high point.

As for me. I guess I am just going to continue to exist as I have always done. Regardless of bubble formations around me. When they go the way of the dinosaurs (when the bubble implodes), I am still going to be here. I may not get many page views, but at least I exists on solid ground. Not up in the cloud, were the fall is high and hard.

Answer to B.Storms

B.Storm.message.18.05.2014

Hello,

I wanted to thank you for your answer. I do agree with your opinion. This is quite sad things that are being written there about this stuff. In a negative way too, sadly. Since the reality is different in most cases and far and long distance from the picture that is drawn up in this article.

I would have answered you on Cracked.com website and I did try to do so as you can see. But I have been forever banned from using its comment and message section. So I sadly cannot answer you there. So this has do the job in the case you find this.

Best regards,
Jón Frímann (jonfr)

Final notice

I was once going to write for cracked.com website. I never did it for two reasons. The U.S Tax code and I always found something fishy taking place based on the set-up they use to select articles, as is covered in this news here. The thing about me as an writer is that I try to write good material. I don’t want to write junk on the internet, unless the occasion arises for me to do so (that almost never happens). So in the end I never wrote anything for cracked.com and following this ban, I deleted my writing folder for Cracked.com and it is going to remain deleted. I was right in doing so. The workings at Cracked.com are explained here. The pay is bad and the work is heavy and that is not worth my effort and research that goes into writing a good article. Since good article is not something they are looking for, what they are looking for are keywords, as explained in the news article that I linked too. I am happy this did not work out for me (since I didn’t trust what I was seeing) at writing for Cracked.com. It would have been awful for me and I would not have lasted anyway.

As for cracked.com website. I am never going to read them again. I am going to ignore them until they meet the bitter end and vanish off the internet. Currently I am just in final mopping up procedures. This means I am just documenting and taking screen-shots of comments that are added to my comment on cracked. Nothing more, given that articles on cracked.com website has the lifespan of 3 to 5 days (depends on popularity), I don’t expect to see more comments (at least not a lot more) with my comment on cracked.com article.

My apologies for the long read, so thank you for reading the whole thing. If you have kindle device you can send it to it for free.

Ask toolbar spyware included with Java installs

Oracle has now started to spread Ask toolbar spyware with its Java installations. Oracle has a nice page on this here, making this look innocent and nice. The problem is that Oracle is lying and this is far from being nice. Since this is nothing but spyware and is going to create a lot of run-time problems with your browser. I am not the first one to cover this, far from it, an article on this subject can be found here with information on how to avoid this problem with the Ask toolbar.

Next time you install or update Java, the Ask toolbar boxes and any other software other than Java it self should be left unchecked like this.

java.spyware.2
Oracle Java Ask spyware check boxes. Screenshot that I took.

Oracle should stop doing this. I don’t think they care enough however to do so. So people need to stay aware of this issue with Java installs.

Ásættanlegur hraði á internetinu?

Það var eitt af hlutverkum Fjarskiptasjóðs að byggja upp háhraða internet fyrir íslenska bændur. Þetta verkefni hefur mistekist gjörsamlega og líklega á öllum stöðum þar sem átti að koma upp háhraða interneti fyrir bændur.

Hérna er hraðin á internetinu sem foreldrar mínir þurfa að notast við á internetinu. Það á að gera örfáar breytingar á næstunni til þess að reyna laga þetta. Ég hinsvegar veit ekki hversu miklu þetta mun breyta, þar sem hérna er verið að nota 3G kerfi Símans og það ræður engan vegin við þá internet umferð sem er verið að senda í gengum það með þessari áætlun.

Þessi fjarskiptaáætlun er því augljóslega klúður frá upphafi til enda. Í stað þess að notast við lélegar skammtímalausnir eins og 3G og gervihnattasamband (á sumum stöðum) þá hefði átt að leggja ljósleiðara til þeirra bænda sem vildu fá gott internet samband. Þannig hefði líka verið hægt að dreifa annari þjónustu til þeirra. Þá sjónvarpi og annara tengdri þjónustu sem hægt er að bjóða upp yfir ljósleiðara. Þjónustu sem er ekki einu sinni í boði yfir 3G eða ADSL á þessum svæðum. Þetta hefði einnig verið nauðsynleg tæknileg uppfærsla á grunn-fjarskipta netinu á Íslandi. Þar sem ljóst er að fjarskiptasambönd yfir kopar verða aðeins notuð í nokkra áratugi í viðbót í heiminum og á Íslandi.

Þetta fjarskiptaverkefni var hugsað á þann hátt sem íslendingum er svo gjarnt að hugsa í. Skammtímalausnum sem verða svo dýrari til lengri tíma litið.

Vísir.is ritskoðar athugasemdir við frétt um Smáís

Í dag (25-Október-2013) var birt frétt á Vísir.is þar sem Smáís sakar Netflix um þjófnað og að vera ólöglegt fyrirtæki (streymi er ennfremur ekki beint niðurhal eins og þarna er fjallað um ranglega). Fyrir utan þá staðreynd að þetta er lygi í Smáís þá átti sér stað umræða við þessa frétt þar sem rök Smáís voru tekin í sundur og þeim hent í ruslið. Ég setti meðal annars þarna inn athugasemdir. Núna hefur þessum athugasemdum öllum saman verið eytt og lokað fyrir athugasemdirnar í heild sinni.

Staðreyndin er sú að Fréttablaðið og Vísir.is er í eigu sömu aðila og hafa hvað mest verið að berjast á móti Netflix og Sky áskriftum íslendinga (hver man ekki eftir því þegar Smáís reyndi að banna Sky áskriftir íslendinga. Sjá einnig hérna, hérna og hérna. Þess má einnig geta að samkvæmt dómsúrskurði ECJ þá má selja áskriftir til einkaaðila yfir landamæri á innri markaði ESB/EES).

Það er einnig staðreynd að 365 Miðlar (eða hvað sem þetta fyrirtæki heitir núna í dag) hefur alltaf verið á móti samkeppni síðan hún kom fram á Íslandi. Í dag er Netflix í beinni samkeppni við lélega og dýra dagskrá Stöðvar 2 og það sem meira er. Stöð 2 er að tapa þessari baráttu algerlega og með dýrum dómum. Enda fækkar áskrifendum stöðvarinnar stöðugt og það sér ekki fyrir endann á því ferli. Það er bara tímaspursmál hvenær áskrifendum að Skjá einum fer að fækka á sama hraða og hjá Stöð 2.

Það er alveg ljóst að Smáís er í þjónustu 365 Miðla og hugsanlega fleiri aðila. Hérna er eingöngu um þjónustu við dreifingaraðila að ræða en ekki höfundarréttahafa eins og Smáís heldur fram í sínum málflutningi. Á Íslandi er verið að viðhalda svo til algerri einokun á hinum íslenskra fjölmiðlamarkaði með því að koma í veg fyrir heilbrigða samkeppni. Slíkt hefur leitt af sér hærra verð til almennings á Íslandi og minni gæða og verri þjónustu að auki (háskerpu-útsendingar eru svo til óþekktar á Íslandi eins og stendur) og það er lítil von á því að það breytist á næstunni.

Uppfært: Vísir.is hefur opnað aftur fyrir athugasemdir við þessa frétt eftir að þessi lokun hjá þeim komst í hámæli. Ég tel að afsökun þeirra standist ekki en þeir nota hana nú samt.

Facebook is spamming your inbox

Over the past few weeks I have noticed that I get occasionally an email from Facebook that I did not ask for. This note-faction come from pages that I have not liked at all and I am never going to do so. I have also never subscripted to this pages outside Facebook.

facebook.spam.22-October-2013
This is Facebook spam in my email. I have never liked this page and reporting it as spam seems to be useless effort.

The thing about this email, that I did not ask about is the fact that this is paid advertising and nothing else. Facebook does not seem to care that it is spamming its users with this crap. Since this is nothing else and it is also an bullshit.

facebook.spam.22-October-2013.not.liked
As can be seen here I have not liked this page and I am not going to do so.

This new ways of Facebook to do business means only one thing. The end is near for Facebook and they know it, they are maybe good for next 5 to 10 years if they are lucky. This has already started with Facebook loosing users and activity. As has been explained in news like this one here. As for the Facebook page system, it broken and is aimed to be a pay for view type of system as explained in this news here.

For my pages on Facebook, I refuse to pay for them (even if I had money to do so) since I refuse to spam people accounts.

The Kernel is yellow journalism

There is less to the website The Kernel than meets the eyes. This news site appears to be nothing more than yellow pages of the Daily Express. I fully expect them next to start covering alien abductions and pictures of big-foot. There is an interesting information about this news site in the whois information. Mostly that the website kernelmag.com was just created in 2011, so it’s news with less than 5 years running time. They are based in Germany and located in Berlin according to there whois information. There domain is also about to expire next month. They run no advertisement at all and have no source of income that I can see. They clearly do not sell subscriptions to the website that I can see. So how they remain funded is a big mystery to me.

The Berlin 42 appears to be a company in Germany, but from a quick search on-line they don’t seem to make anything at all. I found there Facebook page and it’s close to empty with just 42 followers. Here are the German information about this parent company (what I was able to find and that was just about everything). There current style of headlines is in the manner connect with yellow journalism. The type of news papers that thrive and make it’s there business to manufacture scandals, there main agenda is not to inform people. There main agenda seems to be in my view to create as massive damage in there wake as they can. What is worse, they are succeeding in doing so.

Currently most of not all major e-book publisher have closed down there stores or simply just removed all of there catalogues off the internet. Regardless of content or if it’s offending or not. While I do not object to some control over what is published on-line in e-book (in accordance with local laws) it’s good to have to clear on that murder mysteries does not seem to create any controversy among people, yet for some reason when it comes to nude people it does and is easy to manufacture as an big scandal for sake of publicity (in this case Kernel website). The news of the sweeping ban can be found here (slashdot.org) and here (BBC News).

This type of journalism that is taking place at The Kernel “magazine” (or whatever) is not going anyone a favour and as I say before it’s creating huge damage to all e-book publishers. Sine now all e-book publishers are being punished for this type of news reporting. Regardless if they write erotica or not, that is clearly not to benefits of nobody. Expect maybe the people at The Kernel magazine (or whatever they want to call them self). There is little to say about yellow journalism, expect it’s disgusting and people who do such a thing should be ashamed of them self and take a course in ethics at some good school (I guess they won’t do that, they lack the ethics to do so in the first place). You can also be sure that The Kernel is a yellow journalism magazine, they have a “resident astrologer” in the editorial staff. This is just a codeword for bullshit and nothing else. This is what yellow journalism has and is a signature of any bad newspaper out there.

I had not published anything on the e-book platform yet, since things had gotten delayed for me in the past few days for reasons outside my control. While I had not published e-books yet I have my own publishing platform on this website here. I don’t write erotica, it’s not my field of writing. I write science fiction stories and I guess there won’t be a lot of romance in them (at least not for a while I guess) and if there is going to be a romance the stories, it won’t be long or of the nature the yellow journalism is loosing it self over at the moment.

As for the news at The Kernel, it’s just an made up scandals that they are pumping out to gain publicity and short lived fame. It’s nothing else and never was intended to be anything else in my view.
