Does this mean I can finally report 4chan to the elite Back-Tracking Division of the Cyber Police? Because fark those guys. Actually, don't report them, because if their site gets taken down they'll all flood Fark like rats fleeing a controlled demolition

Translation: we'll just filter out all traffic from China or Russia if Norad has to wait for its youtube videos to load.

I think they have a shiat-ton of other *chan sites to flood when 4chan goes down. Besides, it takes a day to register on Fark, if they haven't done so already.

The guy died from a heart attack - that makes sense. It also seems like the girl was in foster care before he died because he hit her. Ugh, that is depressing.

Reddit seems like it's somewhere in the middle... but maybe that's cuz I'm female and they don't take kindly to those standing up for themselves. Tried it out for a couple of weeks, gave up, haven't gone back in six months.

Ever computer, yes even "Apple Mac's", have MAC addresses that can be used to trace you back on the Internet.

I installed a program on my computer that hides my MAC address on the internet. I'm not doing anything like hacking or ping of death or anything, but I don't want anyone really tracking where I go on the Internet. Some of my friends do hacking stuff for fun. I think they're probably going to get caught LOL.

That's what I was initially thinking, but upon reading the article it looks like someone took my baseball model of network security seriously.

//Locate the hacker, hop into a van, drive to his place, and play home run derby with his computers. Also, break his kneecaps.

Try respect for privacy first.

Give it back.

Are you for serious? You just made the headache I already way worse. Changing your MAC address is useful for avoiding bans on websites and game serves (unless you really pissed them off and they ban your range which the isp assigned you). They know all the pr0n you look at! Get out now they're coming for you!

IMHO those that are large and in charge not only found out violence helps, it actually rules. and they figured this out a really long time ago. thus they have been using it in it's many forms to rule with an iron fist ever since. that's why every day peace loving folks are just screwed cradle to grave. if we even think of getting uppity they will end us. so i'm thankful for the crumbs on my plate -scurries away mouse like-

Read and dead?

*sigh*

Violence is a method of death.

Love is a method of peace.

Method acting is taught by teachers.

You choose your teachers, man.

Teach peace or death?

Which is it?

Naw, I'm not scared. Porn isn't really illegal, and I don't look at it. There's also ways around people knowing where you go on the internet.

The mac program I have is one thing. A friend of mine also showed me if you make websites "https", people can't see it cause its encryption.

At my school someone showed me the encryption trick to get to blocked websites but then our teacher saw him and he got put on duty. haha.
