Ok, so. I have a blog. Blog lists an e-mail address. So I get SEO spam requests. "Dear R, I read your blogpost <url> and I really think it would benefit from the link to my post <url>".

The post being peddled is inevitably just dull or bullshit. It's only purpose is to rack SEO for the main domain, that always sells some shitty service or another.

I usually ignore such e-mails…

…but this time the guy is really persistent. And is getting on my nerves.

So, I have an idea. And I want to know how bad it is.

@kirschner Ich muss meine Idee einer Initiative "Public Money, Public Communication" endlich mal angehen.

either i'm not getting how totp/2fa should work or many eager app reviewers… copying or duplicating your 2fa-devices should be done with outmost care. however, maybe using 2fa «in wrong ways» would increase overall security.

any recommendations for a privacy oriented alternative to mailchimp? It will be used for a small community project (~50 subscribers, max. 50 posts per year). It sould be possible to operate the system without any special technical skills. thanks!

I to the Office and did a good deal of business, and so home to supper and to bed with my mind mightily pleased with this day’s management, as one of the days of my life of fullest content.

habt ihr ne Domain bei #Hetzner liegen bzw nutzt deren DNS Backend?
Und ihr vermisst auch #DNSSEC?

Dann schreibt dem Support doch gerne eine kurze Nachricht, dass ihr das gerne haben würdet.

Hab das gemacht, da wurde gesagt es gibt derzeit zu wenig Kundennachfrage.
Also wenn ihr gerne DNSSEC haben wollt bei Hetzner, dann wendet euch gerne mal an die :)


This is one other aspect to consider and why I started this thread about crying wolf. Folks could mistake genuine requests as phishing or as another study by Princeton.

One final note: please check the blog post linked in my previous thread to see the text of the Princeton email. We do not want to risk organizations ignoring legitimate requests because they think it was Princeton. This is a real mess.

In the medieval city of Visby on the island of Gotland outside of Sweden main land, there's a couple of horsemen going around with giant "GET VACCINATED" flags.
