RE: I just installed a javascript disabler in Firefox.

You just installed a javascript disabler in Firefox, you said?

1) on Firefox' url text box type in: about:config
2) hit enter
3) on the search box type in: vascr
4) you will see an attribute called: javascript.enabled
5) with two possible options you could set: [true|false]

Also, here you are assuming I am using firefox to access the Internet. I don't.

You should also change the user agent of your browser, so, that it doesn't send any information about the OS and the hardware you use in it on every request your browser does out there most of which you are not even aware of; and use tor when you are surfing the web

Yes, because you did. Nothing in the link you provided showed any support for this claim, nor have you provided any other evidence beyond a paranoid and quite frankly unbelievable anecdote about being shadowed by shcoolchildren.
Thanks for providing the address of the school, though, because I'm going to try to contact them to confirm if they used children to harass you.

Even for you, this is some leap of logic, Nothing in any post I have made, never mind my life outside this forum, could have led you to this conclusion.

Either support your accusation that I think it's OK to abuse children, or withdraw it. That is a truly horrible thing to say

That is, of course, not the point. The point is to address the question raised whether Javascript is required to post on this forum or to use the quote function when you do, as some have contended.

Whatever it is that prevents you from using the quote function does not appear to be Javascript. That's the only point here.

RE: Thanks for providing the address of the school, though, because I'm going to try to contact them to confirm if they used children to harass you.

This is what a good citizen does! I DO TOTALLY STAND BY MY CLAIM AND I AM NOT HIDING FROM BS! By the way you don’t have to "try". A smart and good citizen like you sure can contact them using the public information I provided. Please, let me know how I can help. I am sure they will know who those two kids are and who I am.

FY&TIF, to make it easier for you, good citizens, and that school’s administration, I worked for them as a full-subject HSE teacher the school year from September 2013 to June 2014. The chief of the security of that school in those times was a relatively big blond lady whose thing seemed to be standing outside of my classroom in a spot she could not be seen from the inside by my students and look at me with a ****** face. Even though I never speak to those kinds of morally deafferented idiotic ********, but only about them; one time I came out and asked her if she wanted to come into the classroom, but she played stupid. Some other teachers passing by noticed what she was doing and she stopped doing it. Even though, if you search for the address of that school you will find as one of the very links showing up this very one (great!), I could not find pictures of the "security staff" so I could tell you exactly who that lady was and probably her name. I am sure she was related to that kind of bs and the principal of that school should, must know about that kind of bs, too.

Let me know how that helps expose those kinds of "unbelievable" abuses. When you are at it, you should send this link to the government and the DoE in NYC telling them that I, both as a citizen and teacher, don’t agree with and I am protesting their "sexual education" to minors bs. I think you may even formally accuse me of slander. I would love to see what unfolds out of my claims and your indicment. Since you are such a logical, skeptic and smart individual, I am sure you will prove my slander by demanding the tapes of the school as I was teaching there (the tapes which could be doctored anyway, but the publicity will do enough good).

Yours may be some kind of honest, "well-intended" stupidity by a good citizen. I mean, you could not even notice that I was making fun of you when you were telling me about those many Koreas and you were pointing out to me that 1984 was "fiction". By the way at that moment it crossed my mind letting you know that George Orwell’s "1984" (making sure we are talking about the same thing here)

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nineteen_Eighty-Four

is not a work of fiction, but a dystopian novel, but you can’t mind every silly marginal glitch out there. I am doing right now because you have made relevant what some U.S. politicians have pointed out the USG has made "1984" a manual for government.

// __ Analysis: Orwell’s 1984 Exposed As An Instruction Manual For The State

https://www.technocracy.news/analysi...-manual-state/
~
// __ The UK is Using Orwell’s 1984 as an Instruction Manual

https://dollarvigilante.com/blog/201...on-manual.html
~
it seems good citizens are doing their share of social responsibility on their own, though, without government training and guidance. So, they are making it very reality of life in current day USA:

// __ FBI’s “Shared Responsibility Committees” to Identify “Radicalized” Muslims Raise Alarms

https://theintercept.com/2016/04/09/...nts=1#comments
~
However, you have given me more than enough reasons to believe it is just not "good citizen" stupidity, I am still waiting for you to finish your primary school Math homework. Could that be what upsets you, good citizen? What exactly upsets you?, that you could not do your Math?, or the result you got?

Things keep getting better by the day in "'the' 'land' of the 'free' and the 'brave' . . ."!

Did you even follow that link, which is broken, or do you just take crazy peoples' words as gospel?

"Page not found
Published 5:03 PM ET Thu, 2 Aug 2012 Updated 12:57 PM ET Fri, 8 July 2016"

A quick Google search throws up no other pages, so it obviously wasn't quite what you think, way back in 2012...

RE: A novel is a work of fiction, by definition. Do try harder.

the relevant difference in the context of what we are talking about here matters. that dystopian novel has become day to day reality in current day USA. That cosmically idiotic jack is actually acting out quite naturally like some idiot from the "ministry of truth" (I mean in case he is not an impersonating joking, messing around). I would love to see what unfolds from his efforts.

By the way, George Orwell is one of my heroes (not only as a sharp and "cojonudo" writer, as a character, human being, as well) I talk about my impressions of him/his writings here:

IIRC it was a good 5 years before we got Jabba to use the quote button as well, and even then only when he felt like it.

I just followed that link and it came up fine.

Maybe you should try again, or use a different browser. If you're paranoid about being followed or traced, maybe you can find someone else's computer, or one at a public library, that actually works.

I meant the link in his link.

Doing an "inspect" on the quote button in Chrome, I find that the quote button is an image embedded in a link. It's pure html, no javascript at all. Hell, it would probably work in Netscape 2, or other equally ancient browsers, so there is no excuse whatsoever for being unable or unwilling to use it.

Thanks. Here is where my info came from, our Sr. Lopez asserting that the quote function was "javascript-based."

RE: Do you have a problem in actually finding the quote button?

I like to understand people (contrary to what you may think I am not just an ******* messing with you) and you sound like I am abusing you somehow which is not my intention even though to you it may be effectively what I am doing.

Edited by kmortis:  Edited to let the autocensor do its work


The way I understand you is: you visually follow the relationship between the conversational back and forths people have for which you use that javascript-based "quote" function, right?

As I said I don't like (what I consider to be) silly protagonism and that quote thing to me is a platform for exactly that. I always talk in topical ways, but our impedance while trying to understand each other may be because I tend to (quite naturally) keep mental maps of what I mind. I never (very, very rarely to the point that if feels a bit strange) print out code. My professional programming colleagues consider me to be a freak. At times a bug has bitten my butt really hard and what I do is printing the page with the piece of code and read it upside down. My brother (a composer himself) can hear a relatively large musical piece just once and effortlessly transcribe all instruments. My mom is like that, too. I think people call it Asperger something or whatever.

I have read (Luria wrote and interesting book about it "the mind of a mnemonist") that that was a skill that people actually used to practice when they had minds (instead of cell phones, "smart" TV sets) and about how people did. By the way, before you go off, I am not saying or implying I am in any way better than other people. It is just that people’s minds are different. As a teacher I notice that on a daily basis. Our minds, not the melanin, ethnicity, money, ... thing, is what makes us "different". A times you see, legally speaking, "adult individuals" carrying around like 300 lbs of body weight with the mind of a 3th grader.

RE: I'm sure the USG's AI is not particularly interested in a tiny obscure forum.

"Why would the NSA care about my boobs?" would Lindsay Mills say to her boyfriend Edward Snowden, which gave him such levels of anxiety that he chose to go solo even though they were very intimate.

Pre Snowden era, I had a girlfriend who works as a social worker for mentally ill/unstable people. Once she asked me (and as an ISM activist working in Palestine she knew first hand about USG/Israeli evil, one of her best friends actually witnessed from a few feet away when the IDF ran a bulldozer over Rachel Corrie): "Why do you talk like this? You are very obviously not mentally ill. I know mental illness. This is what I do on a daily basis". Then I showed to her the letter in which USG let me know they had blacklisted my black rear end in the FBI criminal index. She was shocked, as she told me, because:

1) I am a totally unimportant person in fact I don't care about any kind of protagonism and I am kind of apolitical even a bit associal, I see politics kind of morally

2) USG doesn't deal with their targets in such ways (she knows very well about targeting they drove one of her friends to the point of hiding under her bed, literally, for days on end without returning calls or opening her apartment’s door not even to her close friends, family)

3) as another previous girlfriend put it (she also thought like that): "Ach! You a spy, a terrorist or any of that b#llsh!t. It is not even about you. Whoever wants to use you as such things doesn't have a clue about reality"

Then after the Snowden revelations she demanded for me to explain to her how did I know about all of that in such details and we had long and deep conversations about those matters and why is it that people choose to bury their heads in the sand when it came to them.

Great and thank you very much! I hope you included in your "them" NYC's DoE as well.

RE: and will post updates if and when they reply.

Moreover, I will make very public any communications that transpire from your good citizen actions including who you are and the content of your email, which as part of the indictment I must have legal access to. I did suggest to you to actually accuse me of slander yourself. Schools are so very busy places. Most probably, they won’t pay any attention to it. I mean any open and explicit follow up. Of course, things may and -will- "happen" to you when you protest bs.

Again, I TOTALLY STAND BY MY CLAIM! I would love to see what comes out of this "ministry of truth" kind of develpment.

I am still waiting for you to finish your little Math problem and I think you are able to finish it yourself, especially after I helped you towards finishing it greatly. What happened?

Which is another way of saying it's not just a work of fiction but a particular sort of fiction. It's fiction by both definitions. That's true even if it is prophetic and astute and pointedly allegorical. Dystopian and utopian novels are fiction even if the author believes they are telling and prophetic, or if he believes they could come true, and even if, as in the case of Skinner's Walden II, some people tried to use it as a blueprint.

Dystopian novels are, for sure, a rich source of reverse allegory and literary reference and even, as in the case of 1984, additions to the language, but they're still fiction.

RE: ... but they're still fiction

at the moment they are being used as manual for government and even, as it seems, wholeheartedly embraced by the citizenry, they stop being fiction

Bruce Schneier in his informative, explanatory; but not so great book (when it comes to actual activism (he, among other things, was suggesting to "we the people" to snitch for the government ...)):

// __ Data and Goliath: The Hidden Battles to Collect Your Data and Control Your World

to wit:

* my direct supervisor, Ramona Jagannath, never engaged in such things. She was totally dedicated to the educational advancements of the students. She was also well aware of my professionality and dedication and that my students liked my classes very much.

* the boss of their internal "security" wasn't quite blond, but "white", Caucasian, ... whatever. She was the only female in that group

* the principal of that school DEFINITELY knew what was going on

I have confirmed many times that police at times misinforms their 5th columns to harass you and also at times people assume certain things based on the corner from which they see reality.

This is what they have been doing: You are walking around a neighborhood or just a commercial street, at work or in a public place like a park and they send an alert to the cell phones of their snitches, perps, neighborhood watch, building superintendents and porters, business owners, ... in the area, letting them know they should watch out for that ******. They send them your exact location and a picture of you.

Now if, say, you are a child molester neighborhood watch kind of person (they have networked all those kinds of "watchers" into what they call a "total awareness system") you will assume that ****** is a child molester. Many of those guys like our friend "Cosmic Yak" get quite protagonistic about "their work", at times following you around at close range and being offensive, start yelling at you random ***** (which shows they don't really know, that they are being manipulated, they are trusting too much their lines of command) and as it happens in places such as Cuba and East Germany, they see themselves as people doing good. They do all that nonsense because they need people to harass, so they keep their 5th column in "an active state of readiness" (kind of like when they purposely burn sections of a forest for training). Those targeted individuals are being used not only for social harassment, but also for medical experimentation (they drug your food) in collusion with farma and big business.

At times it is obviously police. Who would drive into a street against the traffic and start yelling at you all kinds of *****: “you crazy ass ******, anyone can get shot at, ...”? Who would risk a ticket to just yell at a stranger? Who has the time to waste doing such things? What kind of idiots would do that? As they themselves say: “they do it for the money”

I remember that, can't think of the name. I do feel bad playing with chew toys, but in my defence, my life get's boring sometimes.
