Well, part of my research (academic that is, not weirdo stalking) looks into security and how little information is really required to be able to de-anonymise individuals online.
I’m going to stop now ’cause I’ve made my point and I don’t want to be responsible for Lamebook posts being pulled! I’d much rather laugh at, and be continually amazed by, the sheer idiocy of the internet ‘tards. Cheers.
@ Boz’s link… what on earth? ” If you are tired of meeting people who are only looking for a pen pal, then you are at the right site. Hot Prison Pals.Com is your answer to find that special soul mate!”
Yup, I just KNOW my soulmate is locked away for God knows what and I won’t actually be able to be around him for how many decades. It’s true love!
How do inmates even get on something like this? I mean they don’t have internet and their mail (and money) is restricted, right?
Wrong. You should see what some prisons offer. I’ve heard of one that had HBO and 2 hours of internet per day, per inmate. Most jails allow their inmates online for a bit, each day… although the websites are restricted. And everything is monitored. They don’t want to let some convicted felon e-mail someone on the outside to organize a crime.
My dad can’t get cable television because he lives so far outside an urban area. They have cable television in Limerick jail. So, essentially, if he wants to watch The Daily Show he has to kill someone.
@ mcowles (and sorta Boz except I think I know the answer to you) – seriously? Are you joking?
I looked up a couple of those guys on their respective state corrections websites – every one of them put that they were in there for “a mistake” or a “bad decision,” one that usually included 4-10 counts of murder, arson, kidnapping, grand theft auto, etc… just, wow.
