Before starting this post I had half a mind to title it “What You Can Do Part 3″ but decided against it even though this is a very important step which if it gained traction would bring about change.
This has to do with google’s “recaptcha” which under the guise of reducing spam (which is debatable) is now unequivocally helping the police state clamp down on you and your neighbors. recaptcha has always helped ZOG, either translating books for the google or digitizing past issues of the NYT it has never served the public good but used slave labor to get things done. Helping translate books or articles for ZOG is bad enough, certainly on principle it’s bad but ultimately this has never excited me enough to do a post about it. Since 2012 though google has been using it to decypher street view addresses. Perhaps their computers that they use can’t quite make out the numbers and why spend the money to have them decyphered when people will do it for free?
This is a big deal, it’s orwellian, you’re literally accurately reporting to ZOG your neighbors address and most people never stop to think about it. If they FBI called you and said “hey we’d like to confirm your neighbors address is 555 12th Avenue” you would likely tell them to shove it and do their own homework and that being involved in your neighbors business isn’t your concern. Certainly you would hope your neighbors aren’t discussing your wherabouts to the feds behind your back. But every day millions of people do it and ZOGs reach grows.
So if this has been around since 2012 why 2 years later am I writing about it? For one thing now when I got to 4chan it seems like every captcha that comes up is someones house number so I refuse to post. There are other ways to fight spam without simultaneously helping the police state grow. I refuse to do it. To alleviate some of the sinister nature of it you can usually fool the system for example if the address show is 7317 you can often times right 7877 and have it be accepted because while the computer knows that a 1 is not an 8 it can’t tell between an 8 and a 3 or a 1 and a 7. This doesn’t always work but a good number of times it does. If you must use captcha do this and throw some sand in the gears of the machine, give them bad intel, who knows how long before it’s discovered or how it will manifest itself.
But there is another thing you can do if it’s possible, do not use websites which implement recaptcha. But don’t just stop using them email them and tell them why, email them this article and tell them until they remove recaptcha you refuse to use their service. The biggest one for me is 4chan, 4chan has some good content and lively discussions but none worth typing recaptchas for. So tell firstname.lastname@example.org how you feel about it. Nothing will change at first so don’t expect it to but while you’re waiting for your favorite websites to change their policies seek out alternatives. One alternative to 4chan is the new truthinourtime.com/chan/ it is an imageboard like 4chan with the same features and many added benefits such as being able to browse the entire site with a proxy or VPN, no registrations of any kind and as anonymous posting as you can get on the internet.
TioTchan has great potential but it requires people to make a change and a short term sacrifice for long term benefits. So share it on social media and tell your friends and we can build something exciting while giving ZOG the finger.
