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!
Here is a little bit more detail about the kind of man Rudolph Muller is:
Well, it is apparent the fine dining on the Sponsor's Tabs (Vodacom, Afrihost, Cell C, Takealot, MassStores, etc..) has its intended effect but insults aside... this man is totaly fucked in the head... have a look at this article. He is now banning people for disagreeing/asking questions... Oh wait, hasn't he done this before? You bet your ass he has.
Personal message to Thor187: Rock on dude... keep pushing his arse, maybe his nose will glow red and not just around Christmas time.
So I noticed MyBB changed their pathetic branding, from the Macromedia-esque, now onto the Woolworths-esque.
Now there are a couple of problems I have with this. Before I get into the most obvious one, I would like to point out that:
Now, let's look at this "TRUSTED IN TECH" statement. I wish to draw your attention to this article
TRUSTED IN TECH? I would rather say TRUSTED IN CLICK-BAIT.
By the way, the above logo is saved on their server as a .SVG file. Enjoy editing it and having fun!
So my new burner account on DISQUS, was a simple one. I replaced one letter of my handle with an accented character to get around Spamcaster's list of naughty words.
Not one offensive thing was said, primarily because I have been too busy to catch up and comment on Spamcaster's clickbait, yet they/he/it removed every single comment made using that account. What actually pre-empted it was likely me updating my avatar, which I did to comment on another unrelated site. Either that or Xileer correctly identifying me and asking me why I changed my nick.
Since I am aware that Spamcaster and friends are reading my blog (thanks very much- maybe you'll learn something from someone who has an IQ far higher than yours) here is a personal message:
You cannot silence me, no matter what you do- I will be around, always, around the corner, omnipresent, to point out your weak journalism and click-bait, and to nail you on your lack of technical knowledge which is an insult to my profession!
Let's uncensor all that shall we [Yes Kevin, you cannot remove my posts, they are still accessible by me]
Well as we all know, if you talk about something that people feel guilty about, it hits a nerve.
Guess what, I found out which one of those are live, raw, exposed nerves at MyBroadband.
The above resulted in a banhammer to one of my many troll user accounts.
Whaahahhahaha Rudolph, is all the guilt of your fine dining on all the wads of cash you get from your pals S.J. and J.v.Z making you feel a little guilty? Don't worry, I already called SARS and asked them to audit you!
