So I wanted to alert another user on DISQUS about my blog. Guess what... our special crybaby friend has now blocked links to my blog....
First attempt was with a URL shortener.
Second attempt was a post, which I subsequently edited, and when I edited it... it got blocked.
BusinessTech, MyBroadband's own little fake news spew website spewed some fake bullshit click-bait today.
The response to this was quite heavy
Its a very strong response, and I am keeping it here because I am sure it will be sent to the fired furnaces below the Ministry of Truth!
It just never stops, Winston... The Ministry of Truth continues unabated...
Ban incoming for that user, pretty soon....
(oSo the local FAKE NEWS hub is hiring... and someone did point out their job advert:
As we know the business is run by a dutchman (our good friend Rudy), or more accurately nothing that became something through whichever means, probably not the ethical route as I've been told many times over the years. As I have myself worked for some of these "delightful" dutch people over the years, they rate only second to working for a boss of Middle-Eastern persuasion- they share the common trait of being bastard slave drivers - they honestly believe they are better than the people that work for them and love the sweatshop. Of course, that never did sit well with me, and hence the reason why I tend to get emotional about these issues. Anyway, from the advert:
You really must want to work hard. If you are looking for a "work-life balance" or just an 8-to-5 position, please don't apply. There is huge opportunity for growth here, but you will have to earn it.
In the post on the forum, it takes you to the link where you do the actual application. I honestly don't know whether to laugh or cry at this, as it is blatantly obvious that MyBroadband wants to pwn its employees. How disgusting!
This ad wasn't missed either by the readers on the forum, they actually called them out on it. Of course, no response. Boss of sweatshop doesn't care..
Friends, Romans, Countrymen, hold onto your hats, because, no longer is Yours Truly being banned from DISQUS, but look at this response below from one of their journos:
The final word is, its neither confirmed nor denied.
I have noticed, since around mid-November, that posts are not being removed, nor are people getting banned. Hmmm.... I guess the dear old red nosed reindeer is about to come into an awful lot of money, and Jan Vermeulen too by the looks of things.
For those hangers-on that read my blog- Say goodbye to your favourite shitposting bowl MyBroadband, I am sure its going to be "absorbed" into one of their shitty prolefeed platforms.
For those who share my disdain- Its time to move on, they're gonna shut down comments anyway pretty soon. The metamorphosis into the MoT is complete. All good laughs do come to an end anyway.
But but but but Sonikku, does that mean you're no longer going to troll? Yep. I have lost interest now. Naspers are not a nice company to try and fuck with, and I don't want to end up being Bubba's bitch at the showers. Also, without the comments and possibly the forum, its just another boring as fuck news outlet with click-bait so the incentive to rub their arses with steel-wool is totally gone. However, I leave it up to you, the general public, to continue to fight them, to resist using their products and services, and stop making them rich.
But we want proof...
We all know by now that MyBroadband loves to censor comments, yes especially when its about people paying them, or more accurately, a partner of theirs. Look how deep the Multichoice partnership runs. This is probably the best example ever of MyBroadband's censorship:
Note to my overseas readers: South Africa is supposed to be a democracy, a free country. Well it is, when it suits some individuals, but the love of the censor, never went away, it just hung around like the Cold War- Now it's being used to silence smart people.
So I thought it would be fitting to respond to an idiot on MyBB's Disqus channel. And what do we find?
A specific video, is a naughty video. Can you guess which one it is?
If one thing is clear- it sure means that the retards at MyBB, especially head retard Spamcaster, sure knows his low IQ and feels threatened by videos such as these...
So its not just naughty words, its "naughty" videos and images too.
Fortunately its easy to re-edit a meme and their little filter is none the wiser :)
EDIT: This is a legacy item on the exception list in DISQUS, from that time when I pwned them in 2016!
So its interesting to see they are too lazy to update that list!
I am pleased to say that, the tide is turning, albeit very very very very slowly over at the Ministry. This comment on DISQUS in response to this article, made my day:
Update: 9 October 2017
I had a feeling so I went to check... Jose's post has been removed. In addition the pussies banned the user account I used to comment on that post. So banning by association it seems...
The following is posted as "news" but its short and sweet, because the journalists haven't got a FUCKING clue what it means. All they care about is making $$$.
Link to Article
So they write a bit of waffle, to get the Chicken Littles running around "Whoooah the sky is falling" you know, the true journalistic style.
Details of how PsSetLoadImageNotifyRoutine is meant to work, and how the bug alters it, are available on the enSilo blog.
That's because Kevin Spamcaster, and friends, doesn't even know how to write one single line of code, yet they are allowed to publish shit every day about stuff they have NO AUTHORITY on! Trusted in tech? No, trusted in CLICK-BAIT and PEDDLING SHIT!
Today, on my rounds I found this piece of utter shit article- Paid for promotional content it was, but, the sheer lack of quality is what caught my eye. Couldn't have taken more than 5 minutes, a nice tick on Vicky Sidler's tick sheet so that she can get paid full salary by Rudolph at the end of this month.
First step (as per all of MyBroadband crap), let's make Shutterstock Rich! They are a partner in case you forgot!
Second step, let's regurgitate crap from elsewhere... Original paper to be found HERE. The PDF is free to download from that page. So I guess its easy, just regurg, like that bad pasta. Note the original piece is MORE THAN A YEAR OLD. But MyBB thinks we're all fucking dumb and this is "breaking news"
Third step, place a piss-poor copy of an original graphic that is hard to read and looks utterly SHIT:
As to how bad the graphic is- here is a detailed view:
Can anyone READ THAT CLEARLY? Since I cannot find the original graphic on the net I presume they got it from the source, and being the lazy fuck journalists they are, they simply resized it in MS Paint (because Rudolph gave the Mac to Spamcaster who is too busy fucking around with it to man the NewsFeed post) so this is what we need to put up with.
Next step, add links in to PLANTRONICS. So guess what, MyBB contrived some research paper and twisted it into a "sales piece" for Plantronics headphones, as that will assist with drowning out the "collaborative noise problem"
Quality journalism, plugging for money at its best folks! And you can't say anything, you get banned / censored. Whichever is convenient for the red nosed reindeer!
