So Far-Removed

Image source: feross.org

I just had to remove the draft I wrote for a post on Free Speech, in response to someone else’s post on hate speech.  Because it fell apart.  I couldn’t cut the things that made it a post, as opposed to the comment it was…

Despite the fact that all speech except for actual threats of harm is protected under the First Amendment, I couldn’t continue with it.  I added love our so-called “enemies”tough love, especially… I began to add the elements of violence and terrorism, and how hate groups aren’t quite responsible for attacks but rather individuals that cross several lines.  And I added my two cents that ignoring them doesn’t necessarily help because isolation is part of the cause of said violence…

Sigh.  In other words, it was too much because I’m full of crap.  And with politics, you mustn’t care what others think and/or you must prove everything you say with charts, and graphs, and studies, and everything else under the sun…

And I’m already a big ball of stress.  I can no longer tolerate certain foods, and I certainly can’t tolerate politics by much.  There’s so much attached to the talk of the U.S. Constitution, that I may do the whole Hear No Evil thing. 🙉

…Some scars will never heal…

…And then my phone buzzed, adding to all the noise

I just had to remove my Yahoo mobile account.Yahoo

For the more “private” email account—as opposed to the public G-mail—I was receiving subscriptions to things I hadn’t subscribed to.  I had it.  My mother may have over a hundred thousand emails in her inbox (don’t sign up just anywhere!), but my mobile data is precious.

Several times, the magenta notification light flashed this morning.  I did, however, receive ample warning prior to all this—among identity theft warnings (an insurance company saw my info, supposedly), the address was exposed.  So there I go.

So many traps lie out there, with may include the ‘unsubscribe’ links.  There was even one fake email that posed as “Yahoo, Inc.,” telling me my account was suspended…or so I read, from my not-suspended account.

Given my partial abandonment of the Yahoo account, I then put the direct mobile access up in a little bet on whether I’d soon get another unsolicited email notification.  It happened.

The end of that access account also meant the end of the limited news it delivered…so many megabytes of background data…a ton of random headline photos…that I copied to the PC.

So my world shrank a little.  But at least the traffic on my phone is smoother.

So what have you removed recently because it was “too much”?

Oh, and click on the image at the top of the post; Feross did a pretty good essay on internet Free Speech, back in 2009… There, I got an answer to the allegation that cable companies were/are reducing bandwidths for lower-paying subscribers: in 2007, the Associated Press ‘busted’ Comcast for blocking access to BitTorrent, two out of three times.  (Note: the old Yahoo links are dead.)

Magnificent items from you, man.

No, not magnificent words or writing chops, but items. An immediate dead give-away, part of… Time to deal with the spam queue, only this time it’s gotten weird. Or weirder.

I mean, old comments made on Facebook meant for other people in 2012? Or maybe Spammers are trying for more “celver” ways to fool people. And it’s all 23rd and 24th Nov. … Maybe I didn’t get the Spam memo. Or maybe I did, and can’t remember.

JOIN TEAM JOEY NATION!BUFFALO WILD WINGS IN AUBURN, IN Wednesday NOV. 14th from 6-8(Come on out!) You may contact for cuonops.

Yay, team Joey—if it even exists anymore! I’m guessing the last word is supposed to be ‘coupons.’ Just an educated guess.

…Mark your Calendar!!Date: November 17th, 2012…

It may be part of my wanting, needing more info on Indiana to write characters from the state, not ever having been there, that in the cosmic order of things I got my wish in my WP spam queue.

Merry Christmas to my favorite comuetpr guy and his lovely wife. May 2013 be an exciting and interesting year.Your American Dad and Mom are proud of your both.

Something’s telling me I shouldn’t be including this one—the personal nature of it.

That is so cute! And who knows, one day Camryn might actually be the one poaohgrtphing her sister’s birth experience. …

Especially that one. Hey, don’t blast me—I didn’t put this stuff in my SPAM queue.

So I melted 4oz chocolate (adding 1 TBL butter) in the microwave. When creaming butter with the sugars I only used 4 TBL butter(so 5 TBl total instead of the 8 it called for) and added chocolate when I added the egg.

Oh, goodie, recipies. Or someone trying to act on one. Yeah, the latter.

At least a few of them actually fit the subject matter. (Which would be something intended of the spammer.) On a post for one of the Fifty Shades sequel reviews I did (yes, I read all three):

for the majority of the first book. It is great. Rumor has it that the auothr is going to write the whole thing from Christian’s point of view (I read the last book on the kindle and there is a preview of two chapters written this way). I hope the rumor is true.

Yes, it is true, person I do not know, and most likely never will.

And there are those that don’t fit at all.

Wow I used to have such a crush on John Oates.

Besides that “cosmic order” theory, there is another that these got dumped because of the misspeldes words. There’s also the theory that these comment sections are where the political rejects go, as many of them appear to be from Christians (the lefties found a way to deny the righties). Clever ways of the spammer, or politicals, or glitches, or not, I am laughing.

Thank you for that E.L. James! ❤

And then I am sad, because I have spent too much time compiling this stuff into a post.

…Cigarette’s are currently the only addiction I have, along with sex but that’s another story … the one and only time I cut myself, and I’ve been clean of pills for almost 11 months now…

I guess some people are more screwed up than I am. Just kidding; an empty life is worse than a flawed one.

經過多番周旋,總算成功了過程如下:首先apple只退還我$110,我當然不滿.Apple的解釋是我的macbook是CTO,即不是standard package (e.g.訂機時加過RAM, HDD etc., 而我只是加左條DVI線…)最後apple願意收回我的舊機並全數退款現在我再在apple訂過一部新的,student dnusocit多了一百元,還多送4GB ipod nano…雖然要重裝電腦,但還算有賺

Somebody’s gotta tell that spammer (or glitch) that I can’t read Chinese.

Or German.

HV (high voltage) cable should be soldered to the copper sheet at one end before gluing all the parts together.

What the heck does high voltage cables have to do with Fifty Shades Darker?  I don’t even remember the phrase “high voltage cables” appearing once in the series.  Sure, something cable ties for tying up Ana… Oh, hackers…
