  • Airlines targeting people in Trump gear
    by /u/overtrick1978 on January 21, 2021 at 1:30 pm

    I get the whole “private companies can do whatever they want” argument, and I don’t agree with it. But what about companies that are federally regulated, or that only exist because of federal subsidies and bailouts? Case in point, my girlfriend is a flight attendant for a major airline. She has literally told me I cannot wear Trump gear when flying on her companion pass because many FAs (who are overwhelmingly liberal) are profiling us and can and will remove someone from a flight based only on the presumption that they are trying to provoke a reaction. So far, I haven’t seen any instances of this happening, but would it even be legal? Or would it just be a PR problem? submitted by /u/overtrick1978 [link] [comments]

  • Question about Twitter censorship...
    by /u/anonymousrandompleb on January 21, 2021 at 12:19 pm

    Sooooo...I have some questions. I was perma-banned from twitter a year or two ago for breaking their TOS (not spamming) (one was in response to one of Trump's posts where I suggested that suicide is an option for the betterment of society-I made sure to word it in a way that it could not be interpreted as a threat, and worded it so it wouldn't directly tell him to kill himself-I presented it as more of an option than as a direct command to kill himself, but that was apparently STILL against their TOS despite the fact that he was allowed to make direct threats of nuclear war against other nations simply because it was "newsworthy". Then when the ban was over I was almost immediately banned again for a similar post from months before the one that initially got me banned. Then when that ban was over, a couple months later, I got in an argument with this chick defending ANTIFA and I called her a terrorist sympathizer and a bitch and got permabanned for "hate speech". There may have been one or two other temp bans before that, but I am not sure). Well, I wasn't personally banned, since I never use my legal name online, and it was my band account (as in musician, not a missspelling of "banned"-I didn't have a personal account, but I used the account for both promoting my music as well as speaking my mind). If I started a new band and created social media pages for it across platforms (or even set up a personal account) would they be able to consider that ban-evasion and shut that account down since it would not be an account for the same band? Anyone familiar with the way the Twitter censors operate? If it is ban evasion, if they caught on and tried to ban me again could I just say it was an employee hired to run my social media acting unprofessionally with the older account to bullshit my way out of another ban? Normally, I would just create a new account, but apparently twitter has ways of telling that you are the same user that they wont release. I am familiar with VPN's and such, but I have read about people still getting hit with ban evasion bans even with VPN's. Any insight would be awesome. submitted by /u/anonymousrandompleb [link] [comments]

    Okay so this post was blocked cuz of mention of the big social media boy, but it's not really about it and it's just one face of the problem so I will censor it and hope it flies: Okay, so weird shit happened to me. Just this morning I accidentally discovered that I've been liking things on f b that I didn't liked, commented on comments of "anonymous users" and made my own comments, but it wasn't me. When I'm in the f-b log nothing happens after I click at those notifications about it, like I cannot open it. More than that, I've been spoted "active" on insta while I really wasn't and what's weird is that my passwords are very secure and I am supposed to get a notification every time those accounts are used from the new device. While searching for a cause I've discovered that my browser history is missing like 20 days, from today to the end of december. I have no idea what is going on, I did not downloaded anything, used only legit sites and I have two plugins(one from malwerebytes) on the browser for protection that I use and never had any malwere problems. Only thing I can think of is that yesterday there was this asssiment in my uni where we were supposed to create our own website and the guy who runs the class said we should do it in some weird hosting service and that it's "legit and secure".... I scanned my device with both malwerebytes and hitmanpro and they found nothing. Any ideas what is going on? I'm freaking out. submitted by /u/Puzzleheaded_Spot403 [link] [comments]

A new affidavit filed Tuesday by the FBI described preparations by the right-wing Proud Boys to storm the Capitol, including using earpieces and walkie-talkies to direct movements throughout the building and a discussion about wearing black to dupe people into blaming antifa for any trouble.

    by Jeff Deist on January 21, 2021 at 4:01 am

Wilson, Roosevelt, and Johnson were the transformative presidents; Eisenhower, Nixon, and Reagan offered only rhetoric and weak tea compromises. In politics, being for something always beats being against something, and Republicans were never much against expanding federal power provided they had a place at the trough. George W. Bush challenged this dynamic in the early twenty-first century.

  • Do you believe that critics of Trump and Trumpists are ever silenced or banned from social media?
    by /u/agonisticpathos on January 21, 2021 at 1:51 am

    Although I do believe that in most cases it is conservatives rather than anti-Trumpists who are censored on various social media platforms, I myself was permanently banned from YouTube for what they deemed to be "abusive and humiliating" comments to others. They did not provide me with the actual comments violating their policies, but most of my debates were with Trumpists so I can only surmise the ban had to do with those conversations as they were often times vigorous, sarcastic, et cetera. I never cursed out or threatened anyone, but would make pointed claims about Trumpists being delusional, brainwashed, mentally unwell, and playing the victim card as much as liberals (side note: I'm neither liberal nor Trumpist; I dislike both sides). ​ With all that said, when I mentioned this to someone else in this subreddit they 100% did not believe me. In essence, they thought I was lying. So my question has to do with precisely that: regardless of your politics and whether you like Trump or not, is it truly that difficult to believe that an anti-Trumpist could be banned for ad hominem attacks on the Trump crowd?? submitted by /u/agonisticpathos [link] [comments]

  • A phone repair company left themselves two 5-star google reviews from my account when I left it there for repair without permission
    by /u/srn426 on January 20, 2021 at 11:59 pm

    Just discovered this sub so I hope this is the right place to ask this! A phone repair company went through my phone without permission and left themselves a 5 star rating and review on google. They did this twice (first repair was defective and I dropped off my phone again a second time). I feel as though they violated my privacy. What can I do in this situation? I am in NJ, USA. I dropped my phone off at a phone repair kiosk in the mall after I shattered the screen. They asked for my passcode (“to make sure the screen works when they turn it back on or something like that) and they said to come back and pick it up in 20 minutes. I returned in 30 minutes and picked up my phone. Three weeks later I dropped it off again because there was an issue- he said they’d replace it for free and to come back in 20 minutes. Today I got an email that someone replied to my review on google, which was surprising because I have only ever written one google review in my life and it was almost 5 years ago. I checked my email to see that I apparently left a 5 star review that said mentioned their phone cases. I did not write this, nor would I ever. I didn’t even look at cases while I was there! I logged into my google account to see that there was another 5 star rating (no review) for them from 3 weeks earlier (when I dropped my phone off the first time). I would have never known had the company not responded “thanks!” to my review... I am furious and don’t know what to do. Who knows what else they gained access to?! What an invasion of privacy. They are not a BBB accredited business. What can I do in this situation? It’s not that I want to sue them, but are there any repercussions? Thanks! submitted by /u/srn426 [link] [comments]

  • Never been so glad we still have the freedom to turn off our TV's as I am today.
    by /u/Extinction_six on January 20, 2021 at 11:45 pm

    And it's not what you're thinking. I was never, ever, a Trump supporter. I saw the con from the beginning. But neither do I think Biden will be any better. Hence, in order to avoid deep depression, I'm keeping the TV off until the crowning ceremonies have ended. It should be obvious by now that the Democratic party is extremely corporate friendly. That said, I think we're in for a hellish four years as corporations are given ever-increasing control over which voices are heard in our society. The key is to eliminate as many of those voices as possible and look to the few remaining alternative ones. Don't get lazy. Use your right to turn it off. You're dad didn't call it an idiot box for nothing. That said, good luck people. This is going to be a very dark period for civil liberties -- with free speech being their primary target. Don't let them censor you. If you find you're being censored arbitrarily, as is already the case, find another vehicle to express yourself. Hopefully we'll be given more ways to do that in the near future. Be well. submitted by /u/Extinction_six [link] [comments]

  • Political Satire Is Protected Speech – Even If You Don’t Get the Joke
    by David Greene on January 20, 2021 at 11:34 pm

    This blog post was co-written by EFF Legal Fellow Houston Davidson. Should an obviously fake Facebook post—one made as political satire—end with a lawsuit and a bill to pay for a police response to the post? Of course not, and that’s why EFF filed an amicus brief in Lafayette City v. John Merrifield. In this case, Merrifield made an obviously fake Facebook event satirizing right-wing hysteria about Antifa. The announcement specifically poked fun at the well-established genre of fake Antifa social media activity, used by some to drum up anti-Antifa sentiment. However, the mayor of Lafayette didn’t get the joke, and now Lafayette City officials want Merrifield to pay for the costs of policing the fake event. In EFF’s amicus brief filed in support of Merrifield in the Louisiana Court of Appeal, we trace the rise and proliferation of obviously parodic fake events. These events range from fake concerts (“Drake live at the Cheesecake Factory”) to quixotic events designed to forestall natural disasters (“Blow Your Saxophone at Hurricane Florence”) to fake destruction of local monuments (“Stone Mountain Implosion”). This kind of fake event is a form of online speech. It’s a crucial form of social commentary whether it makes people laugh, builds resilience in the face of absurdity, or criticizes the powerful. EFF makes a two-pronged legal argument. First, the First Amendment clearly protects the kind of satirical speech that Merrifield has made. Political satire and other parodic forms are an American tradition that goes back to the country’s founding. The amicus brief explains that “Facetious speech may be frivolously funny, sharply political, and everything in between, and it is all fully protected by the First Amendment, even when not everybody finds it humorous.” Even when the speech offends, it may still claim constitutional protection. While the State of Louisiana may not have seen the parody, the First Amendment still applies. Second, parodic speech, by its very definition, has no intent to cause the specific serious harm that the charge of incitement or similar criminal liabilities requires. After all, it was meant to make a point about online misinformation. We hope the appeals court follows the law, and rejects the state’s case.

  • Blyncsy’s Patent On Contact Tracing Isn’t A Medical Breakthrough, It’s A Patent Breakdown
    by Joe Mullin on January 20, 2021 at 9:21 pm

    Stupid Patent of the Month Contact tracing is critical for limiting the spread of a contagion like COVID-19, but that doesn’t mean it’s inventive to compare people’s locations using their smartphones. Rather, it’s all the more important to protect the basic methods of public health from bogus patent claims. The CDC recommends contact tracing for close contacts of any “confirmed or probable” COVID-19 patients. But doing the job has been left to state and local public health officials.  In addition to traditional contact tracing by public health workers, some are using “proximity apps” to track when people are near one another. These apps should be used only with careful respect for user privacy. And they can’t be a substitute for contact tracing done by public health workers. But, if used carefully, such apps could be a useful complement to traditional contact tracing.   Unless someone with an absurdly broad patent stops them. In April, while many states were still under the first set of shelter-in-place orders, a Utah company called Blyncsy was building a website to let government agencies know that it wanted to get paid—not for giving them any product, but simply for owning a patent they’d managed to get issued in 2019. In news reports and its own press release, Blyncsy said that anyone doing cellphone-based contact tracing would need to license its patent, U.S. Patent No. 10,198,779, “Tracking proximity relationships and uses thereof.”  By September, Blyncsy had begun demanding $1 per resident payments from states that released contact tracing apps, including Pennsylvania, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Virginia.   “State governments have taken it upon themselves to roll out a solution in their name in which they’re using our property without compensation,” Blyncsy CEO Mark Pittman told Wired.  The developer behind North Dakota and Wyoming’s contact tracing apps told Wired that Blyncsy’s threatened patent battle could “put a freeze on new states rolling out apps.”  Given Blyncsy’s $1 per person price point, a state like Virginia, with more than 8 million residents, would be vastly overpaying for contact tracing technology. That state’s app cost $229,000 to develop.   Contact Tracing is Very Good And Very Old   Unfortunately, our patent system encourages the acquisition and use of bad patents like the one owned by Blyncsy. The company’s patent essentially claims technology that’s well over a century old, and could be performed with pencil and paper. Simply adding a smartphone into the works—a “mobile computing device,” as Blyncsy’s patent describes it—doesn’t make the patent valid.   And the patent’s primary claim doesn’t have any technology in it at all. It’s a pure “business method” patent, except that the only business it appears to support is demanding money from state public health departments. Simplifying the language of Claim 1, it describes:  Receiving data about the location of a first person, who “has a contagion”  Receiving data about the location of a second person Determining if they’re close together  Determining when they were close together Determining whether the “proximity relationship” is positive or negative  Labeling the second person as being either contaminated or not  That’s just contact tracing, a process that has been done with simple writing and human interviews since at least the mid-19th century. In a famous breakthrough for the field of epidemiology, British doctor John Snow traced an 1854 cholera epidemic near London to a specific water pump on Broad Street.  Patent documents have even more specific descriptions of Blyncsy’s claimed method. Last week, Unified Patents published some prior art for the Blyncsy patent, including a 2003 patent application directed to an “electronic proximity apparatus” that alerts individuals when they are exposed to a contagious disease. Doing research, writing down the results, and trying to figure out how people got sick isn’t a patentable invention—it’s just basic science. The patent’s other claims are no more impressive. The issuance of the Blyncsy patent isn’t a success story, it’s evidence of glaring flaws in our patent system.   Too often, patents are issued that don’t embody any innovation. These simply become a 20-year-long invitation for a company to demand payment for the innovation and work of others. Sometimes that’s other companies, and sometimes it’s our own governments. In this case, Blyncsy is trying to make a buck by levying what amounts to a tax—but one that only benefits a single, for-profit company.  Unfortunately, we’ve seen patent holders repeatedly try to take advantage of the pandemic. Last year, patent troll Labrador Diagnostics tried to use old patents belonging to the notorious firm Theranos to sue a real firm making COVID-19 tests. Another patent troll sued a ventilator manufacturer. A health crisis is a time to carefully limit, not expand, the power of patents.

    by /u/enragedbreathmint on January 20, 2021 at 8:38 pm

    Searching by “Top posts of all time” I keep seeing posts which say things like “BLM decided” or “The hidden anti-white nature of BLM.” I don’t understand these posts, because they seem to rely on the notion that BLM is some sort of organization with a leadership, when it’s not. It’s just a grass roots movement of people that believe in the value of black lives, and as a white guy I’ve never once felt the least bit rejected by its proponents. In fact, I’ve been to a number of protests and the crowds were always quite diverse. I’ve also seen people refer to BLM as a leftist ploy, which confuses me since there’s nothing political about believing in the inherent value and legitimacy of black lives. Can anyone make sense of what’s going on here? Are there fundamental misconceptions circulating this subreddit? submitted by /u/enragedbreathmint [link] [comments]
