    You made some very good points with which I agree entirely and I just had to delete about 50 lines of my response to your comments because I said too much that would probably be deemed political comment by the moderators. (They already got onto me about that) But let's just say there are too many positions of authority held by criminally minded, morally corrupt, very wealthy people who are using that wealth to subvert the course of democracy, to redefine right and wrong in their own corrupt image and to reinforce all of that by using the mass media as a propaganda/brainwashing tool. This has continued unabated for decades.

    And maybe soon on OpenBazaar ;) Along with everything else.

    If they get their Tor support together, anyway. And if it doesn't leak horribly.

    And then there's the issue that OpenBazaar devs used to work in US intelligence community :eek: But then, so did Snowden.

    Maybe this eh "stars" will get some smarts and stop posting nude pictures of themselves. Heck even just having them on their camera's is dumb.

    You'd think that they'd have learned, by now, to hire competent security consultants :)

    Why?
    When you have a photo taken you automatically saying "Look at me".

    Sure. But who you're saying that to defines the context ;)

    This isn't a new issue. Couples have been sharing sensitive photos since forever. Since there were photos, probably. And there have always been leaks. Such as dishonest photographers and processing services. What's different now is rapid electronic duplication. Everything is one step from the Internet.

    IPhone users in particular are railroaded into this kind of exposure by the phone's extremely invasive and demanding setup procedure.

    Clinical psychologist Dr. Chloe Carmichael speculated that stars play with fire due to “an unconscious conflict between a wish for privacy and a love of the spotlight.”

    “It is possible that there is a part of the celebrity that enjoys the attention, and taking legal action actually intensifies the spotlight upon the event,” she said.

    Actors are great on stage, once they step off stage their elevator never reaches the top floor. For this reason should not be taken seriously.

    LOL The world we live in and the bogus society we create. Mommy and Daddy pays for them to be "educated" they get some letters after their name and they actually believe they are so smart when in reality most of them couldn't figure out how to change a wheel on their car by themselves.
    The real reason this happens to celebrities is because they are just people like the rest of us and they do the same silly things the rest of us do. Can anyone here who is not too old for that kind of thing honestly say they never fooled around with their phone camera and sent those kinds of pictures to their partner and in fact for them to be uploaded to iCloud they don't even need to be sent. Just taking the picture causes it to be uploaded but everyone still does it. My gf does it and she is super hot. Even her female friends at work send pictures to her phone of themselves naked or having sex with their partners, that kind of thing has become the norm in the under 40s generation and celebs are no different.

    Please don't speak for all of us.
    Silly? Just dumb. They feel their entitled to do just what they want with no repercussions. Sorry, wake-up actors. The only thing they are good for is acting. Over paid @ that.

    OK you are obviously superior to the rest of us so I will grant your request, you are hereby considered never to have done anything silly in your life and therefore excluded from my remarks in my earlier post.

    I did lots of silly things decades ago. But fortunately, I was never arrested, and there are no records. Except for failing memories, and the occasional odd photo that shows up on Facebook ;) And yes, my meatspace identity does use Facebook, for family and friends :rolleyes:

    Cops almost did seize my car one time, though ;)

    USA still the best. But getting worse!
    Exactly this. So stupid.


    Little off topic. 3 weeks ago I ordered socks from hanes.com. Two orders two different order numbers ordered just hours apart. One order with 3 emails to mark progress of the order arrived in a week. 2nd order just 1 email to acknowledge order then nothing.

    I called 3 weeks later about the 2nd order. Hanes CSR said they had changed software & no orders had been sent out. CSR was Aces with me but I told her to pass this up the ladder, that those that hired the techs are idiots. Trying to go cheap or putting up with the days of failure instead of getting new techs to fix the mess cost them 100's of thousands of dollars. Probably used in house or somebodies relative.

    Hanes tolerating more than a day of failure is extremely incompetent.

    Ha ha yeah right, they think they can fool you with the old "we changed software story", they are obviously lying. What really happened is the CIA intercepted your socks to plant a backdoor in them. They just don't realize we are one step ahead of them here at Wilders.
