mircea_popescu: Pierre_Rochard why the fuck would he do that lol.
mircea_popescu: for one thing, he can't even rate before he gets rated, so it's moot
Pierre_Rochard: BingoBoingo: exactly. Joining WoT would bring the skeletons out. Best for him to try to discredit it from afar
Pierre_Rochard: mircea_popescu: huh, I didn’t know that, interesting
mircea_popescu: seems a bizarre approach anyway, join wot, start negrating people. how far is that gonna go lol,
asciilifeform: works now
mircea_popescu: and for that matter, why would anyone imagine negratings from nobody do anything
xiando: I am just guessing here, but if I rate mircea_popescu 10 bought what SEC doesn't like from him ten times and SEC sends out nastly letters like they did the last few days
xiando: then I could negrate mircea_popescu and hope he gets upset and negrates me?
mircea_popescu: wait, what ?!
xiando: mircea_popescu: would negrating be a way to get good ratings with evidence away?
bounce: what are you on about?
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform anyway, best i can discern some major routing thing blew at some point somewhere, lost some traffic.
asciilifeform: guessed as much
mircea_popescu: xiando this somehow doesn't make sense. what do you mean "evidence away"?
xiando: seems a bizarre approach anyway, join wot, start negrating people. <- just guessing why someone would do that but I may be way off
xiando: but if it is a freshly created wot account then I am probably way wrong
mircea_popescu: xiando it's like, new kid in school, starts telling all the girls they're ugly,
mircea_popescu: not the best way to behave as a new guy.
bounce: such a person would get a bunch of negrates and drop below the threshold for giving ratings.
bounce wonders if unrating is affected by that

decimation: asciilifeform: must maintain compatibility to 1974!

mircea_popescu: mime is such gunk
jurov: it did not support mime before at all
asciilifeform: this is reason #.... why it all needs to burn

ben_vulpes: (you being punkbot or anyone verifying contracts)
ben_vulpes: that will *both* check the signature *and* show you the signed blob.
mod6: each party will want to name ``out.sig'' something different obv.
ben_vulpes: the cleartext of multiple versions of the same contract can be compared to each other
ben_vulpes: perhaps this is academic though
mod6: so in this case, ben.sig & mod6.sig, each yields a PGP armored message, that's just a signed file that can be verified.
ben_vulpes: and the parties should all deedify independently.

jurov: since yesterday or so ;)
mircea_popescu: lol. so there you go long-day, you can make a fortune affing for bitcoin sites.
long-day: I know basically nothing when it comes to this. I've been awake for more than 36 hours straight trying to learn though. And many hours over the last week on top of that. When it comes video editing, marketing, writing blogs, networking and getting access to good interviews I know my stuff... Bitcoin I know very little though. I want to know though. A year ago at Porcfest is when I learned about it. I've interviewed nearly ev

mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo no lol, he's interviewed nearly everyone who pretends to be involved with btc without actually being involved :D it's how this usually works.
long-day: The activist community LOVES bitcoin bigtime... the two leading female promoters of bitcoin i'm friends with, but they don't know anything about trading.
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: I was going off of the porcfest name drop
mircea_popescu: long-day who ?
mircea_popescu: you gotta learn to be specific.
long-day: he's not very familiar
long-day: it's too small a world to start naming names. I'm certain there are people reading this who are friends with them
bounce: so get'em both in here and have'em introduce themselves
jurov: "you mentioned my name on bitcoin-assets! how dare you!!!!11"
long-day: well... all the stuff I told you guys are trade secrets and the fact that I'm doing horribly with the trading so far is just embarassing
mats_cd03: lol
mircea_popescu: "it's too small a world to start naming names" << this made exactly zero chance.
bounce: so your trade secrets are horrible. what're you, a walking shop of horrors?
mircea_popescu: as a rule of thumb, if you keep doing this vague bs you'll end up on everyone's shitlist.
mircea_popescu: i imagine you don't really want that, so, be specific, go into detail, that's how people evaluate you.
long-day: I kinda look like a dumbass right now, I'm aware of that and would rather contain it.
thestringpuller: mircea_popescu: have you spoken with chetty today?

mircea_popescu: nubbins` can i has summary ? salon not rly worth a click
nubbins`: very popular canadian media personality beat the shit outta a bunch of women, his friend who happens to be a world-renowned composer wrote a frank essay on the subject, essay is now apparently a media item in itself
mircea_popescu: consensual or just off da street ?
bounce: I see mostly repeats about how three anonymous women got hit. nothing about context, intensity, duration, whatever. couldabeen a slap. so, I see mostly words that paint broad strokes at maximum contrast, with no grounding.
mats_cd03: i am always confused when i read these things
mats_cd03: people need to be specific. sexual assault, or sexual battery?!
asciilifeform: sexual embezzlement.
asciilifeform: sexual tax evasion...
mircea_popescu: bounce that'd be salon.
jurov: lol what's that? fake orgasms?
bounce: this "nobody believes women!!1!" when the more important bit is that they're remaining anonymous (beyond the poor reader, to whom, exactly?). this annoys me.
mircea_popescu: "nobody believes anonymous claims!!11" o noes lmao.
mircea_popescu: "we told this one guy who we were!"
mircea_popescu: "he's a judge, judges never lie". etc.
bounce: then there's this ``Katie McDonough is Salon's politics writer, focusing on gender, sexuality and reproductive justice.'' -- busily dressing up the thing with seemingly relevant and respectably looking numbers that really aren't meaningful to the problems in the piece.

mircea_popescu: "he's our junior high math teacher, focusing on c++ strings implementation"

mircea_popescu: wait i thought it was the evil fatcat capitalists that keep importing cheap spooks to keep the local spooks down
bounce: that's the yoosah. in yurp it was labour gov'ts doing the importing, in the 70s and such.
nubbins`: <+mircea_popescu> consensual or just off da street ? <<< my understanding is that (some of) the women consented to a bit of kink, but then guy starts punching in head/mouth, choking to point of unconsciousness, etc
mircea_popescu: oh
nubbins`: another was a co-worker who got her ass grabbed and "i wanna hate-fuck you" whispered in ear during a meeting
nubbins`: etc
mircea_popescu: so guy kinda losing it, is the idea ?
nubbins`: but as for the sexual encounters, seems like they signed up for consensual kink but messy gomeshi took this as carte blanche
nubbins`: yeah
nubbins`: now he's suing the cbc for $50m (lel), hired a PR firm, etc etc
mircea_popescu: doing it like it's done.
nubbins`: more like "disguising outright abuse / sociopathic behaviour as BDSM/kink" than "losing it" i guess
mircea_popescu: i wonder if the fucktard "justice" warriors realise that their constant if innefectual nipping at the heels means that anyone involved who can afford it will in fact spend the money and clobber everyone in range.
mircea_popescu: pretty much the direct equivalent of the "tough on rape" laws that simply made sure every rape victim will ALSO be a homicide victim
nubbins`: well the lel is that he was in a union, he can't sue the cbc for $50m
mircea_popescu: great victory.
nubbins`: it'll get pushed to a union grievance
nubbins`: but it *does* allow him to file a bunch of paperwork and get his version of events on the public record
mircea_popescu: depends how the papers are writ.
nubbins`: so... shrug
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: made sure every rape victim will ALSO be a homicide victim << see also related, the (alleged) decision to quietly shoot '2nd snowden' instead of public scandal
mircea_popescu: not all management gets this "union only" sort of coverage.
