Australian rabbits - increases the much needed biodiversity we need...

Ummm... Really? Biodiversity DOES NOT necessarily translate into a good thing!

i.e., Will the Wooly Mammoth prove to be yet another destructive WEED SPECIES?

https://original.newsbreak.com/@andrei-tapalaga-561350/2502759852897-5-million-year-old-woolly-mammoth-is-being-brought-back-to-life

When I was a kid I used to think, "How kewl would it be to refoliate the Earth with Wooly Mammoths?"

During my studies in 'Ecology, Behavior, and Evolution' at UCSD I realized that we have good reasons to be skeptical of such efforts.

What are your thoughts?

@tallship Well...

In a letter to the UN Secretary-General from Boris Yeltsin, on Christmas Eve, 1991, he asked that Russia take the place of the Soviet Union in the UN, including the USSR's permanent seat on the UNSC.

This was not without objection by legal scholars, however, it's met with no objections from other members of the Security Council.

The tragedy, in my mind, is in knowing that the masses of people worldwide had the foresight that this acceptance by the UN would result in the continued hamstringing and disruption of the UN in passing resolutions; as Russia now would wield the same veto power that the USSR previously enjoyed.

Here's something to ponder...

I understand why the Soviet Union, France, United Kingdom, the United States, and China have a permanent seat on the UNSC (United Nations Security Council), but the USSR no longer exists...

So why does Russia enjoy permanent member status?

With that thinking, why doesn't Georgia, Belarus, Ukraine, etc., enjoy permanent status as well?

Russia was just one member of the union that ceased to exist on Christmas Day 1991.

An interesting thing to consider, perhaps?

What are your thoughts?

On Friday, the federal government boosted the viability of distributed social media platforms by effectively capping the number of user accounts to 50,000 for social networking entities that still wish to censor legal speech:

## Fraud Alert! - Please Boost.


### This may or may not be a scam - I believe it probably is - change my mind.

To answer your question, it appears very much like a dangerous phishing expedition.

#FabForm has many of the typical red flags and hallmarks of a serious #data_mining_scam - an #identity_theft #fraud ring.

"Be afraid. Be very afraid.", and stay very far away, is my advice - and Feel free to BOOST this post in the spirit of #public_service announcements.

I could be wrong, but let's look at the things that are #total_cringe and suggest to me that this is a #scam.

1.) Forms are easy - Why would you insert someone else's snippet into a website of yours? So they can farm your customer's data? Heck, if you're running a #Hugo site you could certainly just also run a fully automated #Mautic server too for your inbound marketing. But that is beside the point.

2.) There is no FabForm company (FabForm, Inc.) - at least not one that I could find. There's two other (manufacturing) companies with similar names, and you may be infringing upon registered trademarks.

3.) Your legal, contact, and and even other pages have broken links resulting in 404 errors there's no serviceable contact information about your company - as if it doesn't exist at all - another hallmark of #criminal_fraud.

4.) You claim to be a business, but even your domain registration's #WHOIS is #obfuscated by a privacy bureau, and you're hosted with a droplet at #Digital_Ocean - I haven't yet fully determined whether you're part of a criminal enterprise or not, so until I am able to ascertain that, I will not contact their #abuse_department.

Registrar: NameCheap, Inc.

</snip>

5.) You seem to wish that people do business with you, while you remain completely #anonymous, operating under the #pseudonym of FabForm - that's #shady_as_fuck, and anyone doing real business with any company needs to be able to #verify that they're actually engaging in commerce with a reputable and #verifiable_business entity - anyone buying into doing business with a company that can't even be verified is a fool - and therefore, it is clear (to me, at least) that you are only looking to do business with fools who are keen to be ripped off, or worse.

6.) It gets really #sus when I try to look at your #legal and contact systems via your website - you basically don't even exist. I've posted supporting screenshots and encourage everyone to review your Terms and Privacy statements which are completely meaningless if you aren't even an actual business that can be legally held accountable. Even if you are a real thing, shame on you for anonymizing yourself - that's really shitty business and makes you a shithead, at the very least.

7.) One thing I can definitely verify - you have been commercially #spamming people from your #Fosstodon account.

I don't know who the fuck you are, and won't do business, or use the supposed business products of, someone I don't know or who I can't #verify as real, or doesn't make all of their code available - there's is nothing that holds you #accountable for any #nefarious_practices, and you could vaporize your account tomorrow and #abscond with other people's money, as well as the #personal_info of their customers that you can then seek to #rip_off.

Like that old #Cheech_and_Chong skit, "if it looks like dogshit, smells like dogshit, tastes like dogshit..... then it's probably #dogshit".

Glad we didn't step in it, right?

I'll be following up in a couple of days to determine whether your #spam solicitation warrants going further on out into social media abuse vehicles in order to add you to blacklists, etc., so feel free to respond with actual and verifiable contact info, proving that you're a legitimate business offering legitimate services and not some #criminal_enterprise - which it appears that you are, at least to me you do.

P.S. I've also forwarded this off to @Mike and @Kev as well as @[email protected] since the likelihood that this is a sophisticated data mining operation (and certainly, the account appears very spammy) is alarming, IMO.

Apologies if I'm wrong, and I'll write a retraction if that is found to be the case, but I won't hold my breath.

Ghislaine (AKA jizzlane) #Maxwell got sentenced to 20 years in the hiney hole hotel today.

Prior to her sentence being handed down upon her, #Virginia_Giuffre, perhaps the most notable of her victims, had this to say in her pre-sentencing statement, yet mentioned nothing about #Prince_Andrew, as per the terms of her non disclosure agreement following her settlement with the royal:

"Ghislaine, 22 years ago, in the summer of 2000, you spotted me at the Mar-a-Lago Hotel in Florida, and you made a choice.

You chose to follow me and procure me for #Jeffrey_Epstein. Just hours later, you and he abused me together for the first time. Together, you damaged me physically, mentally, sexually and emotionally. Together, you did #unthinkable things that still have a corrosive impact on me to this day.

When you did that, Ghislaine, you changed the course of our lives forever.

You joked that you were like a new mother to us. As a woman, I think you understood the damage you were causing -- the price you were making us victims pay.

You could have put an end to the #rapes, the #molestations, the sickening manipulations that you arranged, witnessed and even took part in. You could've called the authorities and reported that you were a part of something awful.

There is not a day that goes by that I don't ask, 'Why?' Why, Ghislaine, did you enjoy hurting us so much?

I worry every single day and night that you will get away with it and evade being punished. I will worry about that until you are brought to justice. And what should that justice look like?

#Ghislaine, you deserve to spend the rest of your life in a jail cell. You deserve to be trapped in a cage forever, just like you trapped your victims.

My promise to you is as follows: As long as you and perpetrators like you continue to prey upon the vulnerable, I will not stop standing up and speaking out. Together, with so many others you abused, we will do all we can to keep #predators from stealing the innocence of children. I will never give up. I will never go away. If you ever get out of #prison, I will be here, watching you, making sure you never hurt anyone else again."

Ummm... I won't comment on what I think about the now famously rich #Giuffre, living comfortably on the spoils of her hard earned hoebagging money, except to say that she certainly did out manipulate the master-manipulator Maxwell.

I will say that i just can't seem to wrap my head around a measly 20 year sentence for human trafficking violations repeatedly described as 'heinous', when we always seen to speak about these things in terms of castration or death.

He was an Admiral, the #Prime_Minister, and became #Spains_First_Astronaut when he was launched 66 feet into the air, and over the top of his church onto a second story balcony on the other side of the building.

They just don't make Mopars (a 1972 Dodge 3700 GT) like they used to back on 20 December 1973 when #Luis_Carrero_Blanco was #assassinated during a spectacular Intraplanetary #liftoff at 9:36 in the morning.

It must have been a #Hemi.

He actually survived for about 40 minutes following the #suborbital_flight and died at the hospital at 10:15am. His body guard and chauffer lived a wee bit longer than that.

He was a real motherfucker too. #Franco's right hand man actually, and about as devious as one could be, operating a virtual government within the government.

180 pounds of dynamite placed in a tunnel under the street next to his church provided necessary propulsion for the launch of his #Mopar rocket ship, propelling him over the five story church as his car was driving away following his attendance at mass.

Had this bitch not met his demise that day, it is doubtful the #monarchy would have been restored. #Juan_Carlos_I would likely never have been crowned #King_of_Spain, establishing a democratic republic and creating a free state.

Holy #Virgin_Galactic, Batman! Can you say, "E" ticket?

Yes I do indeed my friend. I recommend using two phones, only using the #iPhone for strictly work related matters. It is the ultimate surveillance device from the most #privacy_disrespecting manufacturer.

Nevermind #SpyRix and other common invasive tracking software installed on most employee phones, usually without that users knowledge - all perfectly legal. #Apple itself goes above and beyond the call of #dystopian duty to shield you from others so they themselves can be the most exploitive violator of your personal, medical, and financial information.

Every #AirTag and #WiFi router you come into the proximity of is part of the egregious tracking and personal #privacy_mining and data collection operations by Apple. #BLE and #900MHz monitoring capabilities built right into autoupdateable firmware on chips that you cannot disable in any way shape or form.

You cannot turn off or opt-out of this #surveillance in anyway, ever, on an iPhone.

I highly recommend CalyxOS on an Android that you have for personal use, using the iPhone only for official work related tasks, and perhaps even keeping it in a small #faraday_bag when you're off duty. There's no reason you should feel okay with sharing your most intimate business and whereabouts with Apple and your employers.

Hey buoys and gulls! For those who love noting or authoring with #Markdown, checkout #GitNoter, which just pushed out it's 1.0 general prod release - the developer is currently feverishly working on general #git integration for everyone who merely runs regular old git services on their local machines as well as #Gitea.

In the meantime, for those who don't have an aversion to using GitHub, you can use GitNoter through GitHub via OAuth2, and it supports #private_repos by default right out of the box.

It's #FOSS, Self-hosted, and under active development. I do recommend giving it a good spin, and considering that support for Gitea is underway this will soon be a tool that all FOSS and #Privacy Advocates can use in good conscience without reservation.

Marky Mark (and the funky bunch) replace Google Drive.

Gdrive, Gsuite, Google Apps for Business, Google Docs, whatev you wanna call that deprecated, legacy, and privacy destroying bullshit, is dead to FOSSies and other Privacy concise individuals and corporations.

Do you own a small business with a handful, or even a few dozen employees? Or maybe your the CEO of a Fortune 500 tired of living in a world ransomed by Google and other Privacy disrespecting, closed source, and data mining espionage leveraging companies.

Maybe your name is Joe Fucking Schmoe - like me, with friends and family that are not willing to be extruded through the sieves of meat grinders, then packaged, inventoried, priced, and placed onto the shelves for purchase.

Well, have no fear! Marky Mark is here!
