    About those that trolls you.

    I believe that Machiavelli said:
    I don’t care if people speak bad about me, as long as they speak of me.

    There is no harsher punishment than to be ignored.

    More so for attention seekers fellas…

    Absolutely, I totally agree!  Just ask our marketing department, we don’t have to spend a dime ;).

    I just think everyone is getting really, really tired of their antics and it is time that their trolling comes to an end.

    Karma always catches up.

    Speaking of which, can someone tell those clowns that run MalwareTips to delete my account? (SlyGuy) I will never login or post over there again, so they can just be done and delete it. I blacklisted MT domains on my router to make sure I am not tempted to login or visit.

    A couple days ago they raised my warning level from 10% to 81% in one day and the posts they cited for rules violations didn’t actually have any rule violations in them AT ALL. When asked them to point out specific rule violations they couldn’t actually do and it just kept saying to review the rules. (LOL) A few trends I noticed about MT – people that defend VoodooShield over there don’t last. People that expose intelligence operations and methods (and more importantly defenses) don’t last. Criticize the CIA, NSA, Mossad/Unit8200 and you won’t last. They have an agenda over there but work to keep the agenda from being publicly disclosed.

    About Drops of Wisdom original post starting phrase:

    “About those that trolls you.” 

    This was a poor choice of words as I envisioned a discussion, exchange, of quotes from all walk of life experiences that could benefits us all.

    In retrospective I would very much delete the opening phrase as the direction this topic is going could very quickly escalate into achieving the opposite effect.

    Please do not take offence, I understand the meaning of calling a spade a spade, there is value in that. Not the topic I intended to promote though.

    If all agree we may split this thread into two topics:

    *Drops of Wisdom.

    *Calling a spade a spade.

    Or just delete it, my mistake after all.

    Sincerely,

     

    VecchioS

    Thou shalt not post before Caffeination.  The punishment for this offence is describing your Core i5 as 2400Mhz instead of 3.1GHz.  2400 is just a number and you are forbidden to worry about it.

    Don’t know which make me laugh more, your quote or your Signature.

    Hard pick…

    @SudoJudo If they live in the usa I can totally understand why they would want to avoid any problems with 3letter agency’s.
    How did spilling “secrets” worked out for the last person who did it in public…
    Not saying that this is right but I could understand it…
    If Dan is ok with it maybe start posting stuff here?

    Good point. It was pretty clear they were having influence exerted over them. Especially when I pointed out that Heilig Defense was a CIA front (w/evidence). That got me a major warning tick and the post was completely deleted. I can see spilling state secrets, that’s one thing, but pointing out what is readily available so people can make informed decisions? That’s actual suppression of information that could be important for forum members to make informed decisions. However in all cases, they couldn’t cite any specific rules violations whatsoever.

    So I would be very careful over there based on that. Also posting credentials, security profiles, and personal details is likely going to get you nicked with some active surveillance from that place.

    Remember, their so-called Giveaways require  you to not only post identifying system/security information, but to also give them access to your social media. Effectively datamining exactly who you are, where you are, and what security/hardware you use. They call that public domain intelligence mining.

    Well, since most of us left Malwaretips the place is absolutely boring and uninteresting now. I checked in today (but didn’t bother to login)

    Much fewer new posts. Incredibly fewer interesting posts. Industry experts and professionals have largely vacated it, and new ones won’t be coming because of experiences of the previous ones.

     

    They’ve really brought this upon themselves by letting agents, state actors, and disruption specialists to drive off any of the important, relevant, and product centric discussions.

    Here’s an old quote/Drop of Wisdom. I’m not 100% sure if my wording is correct.

    “Give a person a fish and, let them eat for a day. Teach a person to fish and, feed them for a lifetime.”

    It may be applied to many situations.

    *Note: Quote above modified for “political correctness.” “Person” used to read “man” back in the old days………

    Is that the type of thing you were looking for, @VecchioScarpone?

     

    Happy New Decade Everyone!

     

    😊

    😊

    TRS-80 great quote, the wording is not important  you got the meaning trough very clearly. I know the quote but do not remember the author, never mind.

    Yes this is the direction I would like the discussion to be focus on.

    Thanks
