I will admit that at times we as bloggers can be a little too demanding and a little too much about me me me!   Huffington Post at a mistake that I’m too familiar with it which is  announcing new changes to their site before they are made.

But as the following will show it is a little bit more than just bad wording, jumping the gun with proposed plans, encountering glitches along the way.

I decided to go ahead and create fake Facebook account so then I could show how Huffington Post’s new guidelines affect anonymity. I will admit that it was not as easy as I thought it would be, one has to first create an email account. Not the hardest thing in the world right?  the first hurdle I encountered was having to enter in mandatory mobile number in order to get a Yahoo account, I suppose this is same for our a Google account, (and this is something I will speak about in detail later on) so thinking I was the slick one, I opted for a hush mail account – no mobile telephone number required, HA! score one for Jack.

Armed with my new account I proceeded to the next phase.  Setting up a Facebook account  is quite easy, I even chose a ridiculous name (out of respect I did not use my proposed porn name Dick Johnson)  okay is a bit tedious but I was ready to  set up a brand-new ” anonymitized”  Huffington Post  account as you can see it did not go Smooth


this could be the end of me gaming the system  or maybe there is hope after all ( of course this brings the issue that our information is being collected but this is for another time to discuss)  but I’m not  going to give up because a troll is not going to give up. So I thought to myself how could I do it? and I did find a way around it but because

this is not a tutorial on how to hack anything

and because I am not out to create a problem for the site I will not list how one can get around the verification process.

At this time I stopped. I did not proceed to create the account on Huffington Post because there was no need for me to do that and I would probably would have ended being banned – not to mention that our obsessive trolls would use it as fuel to tarnish this site.

I really don’t see how once a troll figures this out how they can be stopped. It took me quite some time to figure it out but I suppose  once a person learns the steps they can do it in just a few minutes.  Take  people like the unmentionables who  have created hundreds of socks (that are now grandfathered) now  similarly a troll can create as many as they like and continue to troll as much as a like on Huff.

      I think they make the case for anonymity.

    • plutocrats says:

      The convergence of mutual interests will attempt to stamp out anonymity. That is scary.

      • Very. I just removed all my real-face photos from Effedbook. Don’t need their shit.

          I keep trying to tell my family members who use that site the perils of sharing the sometimes very personal information (like medical, etc.) that they do online with each other. They think I’m just being paranoid, like it’s their own little world created just for them. Pfft…what can ya do?

            My kids started out wanting to do MySpace – but when their friends were posting pics of them at school – school uniforms, etc. – I said enough. Don’t need to hand them over to pedophiles on a silver platter was my thought process. Thankfully, they never really got into FB – they opened accounts and aren’t into it. They just like to text and text and text………

            • plutocrats says:

              That was smart thinking there. Maybe when something is as popular as facebook is, it loses its cool factor for teenagers?

                All it really took was a bitch fest one night for C2 and she deleted her account – “Mom, I don’t need this drama in my life and I don’t want anyone knowing my business!” And I said no FB – goodbye drama! C1 followed suit! But then I don’t use one either – I don’t want anyone knowing where I go, what I do, etc. – do you? But then I post shite here – lolz!!

    The problem, as you pointed out Jack, is there are certain words or names that will have your comment pend or not post at all. We all know this by experience. For Stephanie to say a word doesn’t cause your comment to pend is disingenuous at best or just one big lie at worst. I appreciate she is taking the time to answer comments, but her credibility, with me, is lost when when will not admit to word censoring.
