Re: Strange Fun in Fruitless Search of Perverse Pleasure
Anyway it’s fun to annoy the commentards who think they own the place because they have such a huge… post count 😉 Maybe that’s some form of compensation for other issues? …… John Doe 12
Sounds exactly like something a wannabe someone and/or virtual nobody, a John Doe, with a blunt axe to grind as some form of compensation for other issues, would do, John Doe 12.

I new to this criminal mastermind stuff but wouldn’t it hurt your ‘brand’ if you didn’t actually carry out your threat(s) rather than extend it.
Sort of like: “We’ve done <this thing> to your data. If you don’t pay <these $> by <this time> we’ll do <this thing> to/with your data.”
When negotiations ‘break down’ then you carry out said <this thing> or how would anybody take your brand seriously?
Would be laughable if it wasn’t so serious and detrimental, but I agree with the commentards about one day upsetting the wrong folks. ….. Aussie Doc
That’s exactly what the wrong folk are terrified of, Aussie Doc, criminal mastermind stuff being carried out or outed rather than merely threatened in exchange for luscious lucre/fantastic fiat.
As such then, is it easily recognised and may even be classed and classified as a weaponised 0day vulnerability to exploit exhaustively against which there is no effective available defence.

Just a polite request with an uncertain air of positive expectation?
Journalists know what a D notice is and they observe them when so served. Clearly then, assange can’t claim to be a journalist, not credibly anyway. …. LucreLout
Is it true observation and compliance with a D notice is discretionary and voluntary and not mandatory?
Such is no more than a glorified wish to be listed and recorded as sent and acknowledged as received.

Re: Just a polite request with an uncertain air of positive expectation?
No, they’re mandatory, hence observed when sent. …. LucreLout
Oh? …… What are we to make of this information then, LucreLout …..
Any D-Notices or DA-notices are only advisory requests and are not legally enforceable; hence, news editors can choose not to abide by them. However, they are generally complied with by the media. ….. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DSMA-Notice
Is that info from Wikipedia wrong, LL, or is yours not right and misleading?

Re: Did I miss something?
Not a thing missed there, AC, methinks. ….. Criminals angry over having criminal activity exposed, takes mans children to force him to witness against person exposing said corruption. I am so ashamed of my government protecting criminals and going after those that expose them. …. and is akin to Rusty Old Nail Meets Prime Pile Driver Hammer Head Blows.
And all movies always end to be again crazily worshipped, or quickly forgotten when bad, in a prequel or sequel producing other directions.
That identifies Blighty Justice a Sham and Scam for Pantomime Villains? I wonder what Secret Intelligence Servers think about that Abusive Subversive Utility? Be they jolly enthusiastic fans or deadly serious opponents?

The result is a big chunk of code that gets deployed with the application, but was not written by the developer and may include security vulnerabilities.
Yes, it can so include, however is there a problem whenever tempted to realise it definitely includes security enhancements with Almighty Overwhelming Powers?
Would such incite to crazy battle or civilised engagement in current iterations of reality, virtual or otherwise?
