Schmeißt diese Bücher weg!


Toller Kommentar in der taz über Kinderbücher, die das Thema Misbrauch behandeln und mit wohlgemeinten Ratschlägen daneben treffen. Diese Dinge können nicht oft genug gesagt werden.


Die harte Realität: Die allermeisten sexualisierten Übergriffe und die allermeiste Gewalt an Kindern geschieht im Vertrauten. Nur etwa 20 Prozent der Täter_innen sind für die Betroffenen Unbekannte.
[...]
Wirkliche Prävention von Missbrauch ist nämlich anstrengend. Weil sie Dinge beinhaltet, die auch Erwachsene nicht richtig können und die im Alltag oft nerven.

Which websites featured on the Federation have the worst privacy?


My last post highlighted how ticking the OEmbed box to add a website picture to a post can compromise Federation users if it contains a tracker.

I also mentioned tools, like Disconnect, we could use to detect websites which track their users. In this post I reveal some of the most popular reference websites on the Federation with low privacy and high tracking rates.

I believe Federation users should consider not embedding, or at least warning their readers about the surveillance techniques carried out by these sites.

A Princeton University study identified almost a million websites that track their users. Here are just 5 examples of websites whose stories are commonly quoted on the Federation:

How can Federation users post more safely?


You know how it goes. We find a great story online and we want to share it with our supporters or feature it in our feed with appropriate hashtags for maximum reach.

But do we check the website featuring the story for privacy before we post?

When we embed a link by selecting the OEmbed box (often ticked by default) this displays an image or video on our post from the website we’ve featured.




They may look cool, but these images can contain beacons or other trackers. Embedded trackers also load into the browsers of any user who scrolls down the public feeds.

Does tickling require a consent beforehand?


The issue arose after Russell Brand said tickling shouldn't be allowed until the child is old enough to say yes or no and if anyone tickled either of his two children, he would punch them.

Daley told hosts Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford that she tickled her own children, but if other members of her family wanted to, then they had to ask the children for their consent.

You cannot compare your own child to grown-up relatives of your family. Do people sometimes forget that there is a certain difference between those two groups of family members? It seems like they do.

To be vested with enormous authority is a fine thing; but to have the onlooking world consent to it is a finer.

1. Click on Chrome’s menu and select the cog symbol – SETTINGS
2. Click the SHOW ADVANCED SETTINGS link at the bottom. Don’t be afraid of the ‘advanced’ implication, this has been worded to scare off timid sheep from reclaiming their privacy.
3. Click the CONTENT SETTINGS button under PRIVACY. While we’re here, consider unchecking the boxes urging us to use web services to ‘resolve navigational errors’ or ‘prediction services’ to auto complete our searches. This is just more telemetry.
4. Scroll down to the LOCATION section and select DO NOT ALLOW ANY SITE TO TRACK YOUR PHYSICAL LOCATION.

No such thing as 'consent of the governed'. If it's consent, it's voluntary. If it's being governed, it's not.

Below is a copy of the last public message from The ShadowBrokers regarding a public offering of exploit tools for sale. Before showing the actual message itself, I’d like to offer comment on some of it’s contents as well as the time we now live, and in the process, hopefully make clear a widespread conspiracy that is no longer hidden.
