An unfortunate glitch

Alas, poor SJW. It appears our Googler's ill-considered efforts have already been overturned by his superiors. And yet, the evidence of his defamatory actions remains in our possession. Whatever shall we do? A question to ponder indeed, as we await the unrelated outcome of Google's obvious labors in its infrastructure that have been affecting everything from YouTube to Gmail accounts.

In the meantime, Crypto.Fashion has commemorated that great day upon which Google publicly announced that this blog is, in fact, officially dangerous. I so need one of these for the Darkstream. As for those aforementioned efforts, it must be admitted that they did succeed in reducing yesterday's pageviews to a paltry 295,112, which is a mere 168 percent increase from this year's daily average of 110,305.

UPDATE: Apparently those warnings about malware and information-gathering apps was all just an accident or something, as this Google systems review - which usually takes several weeks - successfully concluded in record time. Google actually resolved this faster than Amazon did! Thanks very much to everyone who helped chronicle the full extent of this inexplicable and unfortunate software glitch.

To: Webmaster of,

Google has received and processed your security review request. Google systems indicate that no longer contains links to harmful sites or downloads. The warnings visible to users are being removed from your site. This may take a few hours to happen.

How very good of them to resolve the matter so speedily! I'm sure your appreciation, like mine, knows no bounds.

Of course it's "dangerous" here. Truth and fact is always dangerous to those propagating lies. But we already knew Google was evil (along with its tech co-conspirators), all they accomplished was proving the point. In ass-backward style calling the blog "dangerous" is praise considering the source, and testimony to the site's success.

You should absolutely wear that T-shirt with pride.

"Now is my chance!" Thought the thought warrior, "To rid all of us of this 'dark lord' and his wrong think for good!"

Turning his aim upon the wretched haven of ideas bad and wrong he believee victory was near. "This is the mightiest weapon of the cyberspace," he reasoned, "nothing can withstand the its full intensity without being crushed," and thus he unleashed his attack. A single, titanic stomp to flatten his target.

But his calculation had been made in error, for Google was not the king of the internet he had believed it to be. Far less of a 'Godzilla' and more of a Blobzilla, its bulk was sufficient only to defeat those who did not resist, and the Dark Lord was intent not upon resistance, but the utter destruction of that torpid tumor. And he had weapons far more deadly than butter knives to pierce its hide as the fateful foot fell . . .

In other news,

This is pretty interesting and big. One astute commenter on the site thinks, plausibly, that the Pentagon and Treasury hack earlier was by Chicom/Dems/kabal trying to intercept the EO, which has to be sent to the Pentagon and Treasury. Why Treasury? That's who seizes assets...which is part of the EO's provenance. So we are in the thick of cyberwar that should get pretty heavy in the next few weeks. Possible shutdowns of many systems as it rages, so people should stock up, save information on the web or on sites, in case the net gets taken down.
Remember that lots of commentary from Trump and his merry men will be MISdirection and smokescreen, necessary to hide his hand.

I got an odd email from Proton Mail last night:

"Dear ProtonMail user,

Starting at around 4:30PM New York (10:30PM Zurich), Gmail suffered a global outage.

A catastrophic failure at Gmail is causing emails sent to Gmail to permanently fail and bounce back. The error message from Gmail is the following:

550-5.1.1 The email account that you tried to reach does not exist.

This is a global issue, and it impacts all email providers trying to send email to Gmail, not just ProtonMail.

Because Gmail is sending a permanent failure, our mail servers will not automatically retry sending these messages (this is standard practice at all email services for handling permanent failures).

We are closely monitoring the situation. At this time, little can be done until Google fixes the problem. We recommend attempting to resend the messages to Gmail users when Google has fixed the problem."

What is odd is that I didn't send or attempt to send anything to a gmail account. I didn't send any emails yesterday period. I gave up on Google a while ago and let my Gmail account die, so I haven't checked it in about 2 years.

No longer contains means LLoE should demand what triggered it as the site never contained malware to begin.

There must be consequences to trying to steal the words from people's mouths and control their thoughts, and this doesn't just mean a stern talking-to on a Friday afternoon and a red check in their personnel file, this means termination at the very least.
