Good idea, but it's doubtful that you could start this up on short notice. It might work if Russia/China subsidized them for a while, similar to how Cuba stayed afloat for so long. People eventually adapted and learned how to manage for themselves.

    Yeah, he was pretty much railroaded, same people who forced Linus to go on his apology tour (and the same people who tried to go after Ted).

      I was going to say this: it's unfortunate that this is coming at the expense of correctness and technical excellence as stated goals. But a lot of F/OSS kind of sucks, quality-wise, so never mind.

      The biggest downside of the rise of social justice in F/OSS is that it gives corporations and intel agencies yet another stick they can use to beat down criticism when they implement backdoors, dependence on corporate-controlled projects, or other control mechanisms.

      FWIW, I still don't believe that what happened to Ian was an accident. That's when shit started to hit the fan.

        Probably skiddie bots, but you should look at the logs to make sure it isn't a targeted attack. Do you know if it's Tor, known VPNs, certain countries, etc?

        I know lots of people just block Chinese/Russian/whatever IPs for this reason. If you know you won't be connecting from there and you aren't really interested in serving content to the region, you may as well just geoblock it if you're getting attacked.

        With VPNs and Tor it's a bit more difficult, you might want to allow some of that depending on how you access your servers and what audience you're serving. Temporary blocks are probably better.

        If you're getting specifically targeted then set up a honeypot and see what you can learn.

          It's kind of neat that it can be done at all. Not sure it's all that useful other than to show how interesting stuff can be done in the browser.

            Logical next step is those red screen click-through warnings that you see when you get a bad SSL cert.

            I wonder if the telemetry data from this tells them how much "forbidden news" you read.

              Not to how hack, just how to interface ;)

              I suspect that creating a few spaces filled with interesting aggregated content might draw in some niche groups to contribute content. I think I can make this happen without ruining the rest of NAB. (Most topics are not indexed on the front page. As long as I stay away from those topics then piped-in content shouldn't cause problems.)

                Thanks, was looking at that first but it looked like NabContext provided some necessary config stuff. I can look there for an example though if any of that is needed.
