Comment: The web did better before ads (Score 1) 616

by Cito (#49711901) Attached to: Editor-in-Chief of the Next Web: Adblockers Are Immoral

In late 90s the web was better, people tried to keep good content. Web pages were edited manually. Care web into pages. Yes we had young and noons with overused animated gifs and horrible free sites like GeoCities, Angelfire, Tripod.

But the web exited just fine before ads. I had my own domain name back in late 90s when it was $70 a year.

It wasn't a RSS feed AdSense scam site that imported headlines and click bait titles from random RSS feeds.

Folks cared about their web page and took care of it, learning HTML, making awesome designs, the good sites stood out.

Now every damn site is WordPress, Drupal, Loomla, Tumble, Squarespace themed site with RSS feeds to simulate updated content, and AdSense, amazon ads, and more all over it.

Ads killed the web, no more creativity, no more enjoyment of caring for your site, no more original content.

For that my router has adblock add-on. It auto downloads block list every 24 hours. Blocks all ads at the router, no ads on desktop, mobiles, etc.

How to beat polygraph


"The Lie Behind the Lie Detector

The dirty little secret behind the polygraph is that the "test" depends on trickery, not science. The person being "tested" is not supposed to know that while the polygraph operator declares that all questions must be answered truthfully, warning that the slightest hint of deception will be detected, he secretly assumes that denials in response to certain questions -- called "control" questions -- will be less than truthful. An example of a commonly used control question is, "Did you ever lie to get out of trouble?" The polygrapher steers the examinee into a denial by warning, for example, that anyone who would do so is the same kind of person who would commit the kind of behavior that is under investigation and then lie about it. But secretly, it is assumed that everyone has lied to get out of trouble."

Polygraph secrets


A collection of documents about polygraphs (lie detectors), including how to beat the polygraph:

- The Lie Behind the Lie Detector by George W. Maschke and Gino J. Scalabrini. A must read;

- The Polygraph and Lie Detection. A report by the U.S. National Academy of Sciences highly critical of poygraphs;

- Department of Defense Polygraph Institute Interview & Interrogation Handbook;

- Department of Defense Polygraph Institute Law Enforcement Pre-Employment Test examiner's handbook;

- Administration guidelines for the "Test for Espionage and Sabotage" counterintelligence-scope polygraph screening format;

- U.S. Army Criminal Investigative Command "Forensic Psychophysiological Detection of Deception (PDD) Policy and Procedure Manual."

Fuck FBI, NSA, CIA, use these, infiltrate and leak their shit to world.

That's the major problem why Wikipedia is pure shit.

There have been dozens of articles I've edited to fix misspelled words, missing punctuation, etc.

Then seconds later my edit gets reverted.

Even though they allow "anonymous" edits to articles. I posted on talk page and got told if you want your edit to stay you have to register an account and not edit anonymously.

I asked then why do you allow anonymous edits? Plus wikipedia advertises that it allows anyone to anonymously edit as a group collective project.

but problem is the elite sjw mongs have taken it over.

I stopped even going to wikipedia. The majority of all wikipedia articles are incorrect.

and Georgia Tech banned the use of wikipedia for any research work. If you cite wikipedia your paper gets ignored and flunks immediately.

the whole wikipedia experiment failed. Only assburger sjw mongs run it now.

Some of my readers ask me what a "Serial Port" is. The answer is: I don't know. Is it some kind of wine you have with breakfast?
