  1. There is an in built-in mechanism in the human body, recognised by psychology, that makes someone "ridicule" "speak up" etc that triggers when someone has strayed too far from the social norm.

     

    The social norm is an unspoken averaged mindset of society that everyone (well not everyone) abides by, i.e. how to act in the street, how you interact with people.

     

    The ridicule is supposed to subconsciously and consciously bring the stray person back into the norm. It's designed to keep the group together.

     

    Unfortunately in the modern age it's more of a hindrance than a boon.

    This is the right thread to point out that I love your name and your avatar. ?

    Haha thanks, I like yours too! I like to imagine my account is run by a gentlemanly hedgehog recanting tales from an old story book.

    i can only find the general page.  is it the same for everyone, have they took his website down fully?

     

    The forum was deleted. What we have now is a single temporary page. No one has access to anything else. Hope that helps.

    As a Software Engineer who spent his entire career on the application and software side of things, I must confess that I'm not educated on the security side as much as I should be.  I use Firefox or Brave mostly with noscript applied.  Would Tor browser be better?

     

     

    Firefox is always good with the right extensions.  you'll have a much better understanding of the software engineering side than me, I have a basic understanding and know a couple of languages however anything I've made has never been deployed in an operational environment.

     

    Tor is ok, along as you never log into anything as you'll just get tracked. Also a lot of the nodes are just the police sniffing.

     

    Use tor for normal general browsing, couple it with a double VPN for anything sensitive (such as conspiracy research).

     

     

     

  5. It often takes a minor to medium incident to make anyone or anything to start taking 100% consideration of their online security, often the weakest point in any organisation is it's people. And unfortunately the evidence normally backs up that the higher someone is in an organisation the less secure they are (I've had this in a past company I worked for), and the problem normally starts with them.

     

    The silver lining here is that we survived! And I can guarantee this site is going to be getting a full security makeover now.

     

    Never click unsolicited links, don't even open a spam email, because as soon as you do your IP will be passed back to the sender, it's very easy to do and you can get a lot of info about someone just from that alone.

     

    Take some time to learn about meta data, understand the OSI model for how your traffic is built and placed on the internet, learn about DNS cache and proxy servers, and please start using a script blocker on your browser.

  6. I'd just like to iterate my point I made on another thread. Fake email and VPN.. Use them. For your own safety.and also never use the same password on any site. Always use more than 13 characters numbers and symbols. Hashcat (password cracking tool) will run for years on powerful hardware trying to crack that many characters. Stay safe online all.
