The Google search has become so popular that prospective couples planning a date will google one another. Mark Levine, a historian at the University of California Irvine, tells the story of how a radio talk show host called him a liar because he referred to an incident that the host could not find on google. That is, if it isn't in google, it didn't happen. (Levine was able to retrieve the incident from Lexis Nexis, a restricted database).
It seems to me that David Horowitz and some far rightwing friends of his have hit upon a new way of discrediting a political opponent, which is the GoogleSmear. It is an easy maneuver for someone like Horowitz, who has extremely wealthy backers, to set up a web magazine that has a high profile and is indexed in google news. Then he just commissions persons to write up lies about people like me (leavened with innuendo and out-of-context quotes). Anyone googling me will likely come upon the smear profiles, and they can be passed around to journalists and politicians as though they were actual information.....
The GoogleSmear references a body of falsehoods. It creates a nexus of links that increase the chance that the smear will come to the top of a google search.
Many thanks to Matthew Barganier for pointing out that Plaut just made up allegations against me, of having published an op-ed in the New York Times in which I am supposed to have praised the Syrian elections (?) and spoken against democracy. He must have been imbibing something illegal when he came up with that complete fantasy. Although Plaut at length removed the falsehoods from the page when repeatedly challenged, he did not apologize or issue a formal correction. Moreover, he posted the false allegation to a bulletin board under an assumed name (just to be sure that future GoogleSmears can reference the now-missing paragraph, elsewhere on the Web)....
Greg Boser manipulates search engines for a living, and there's little the Googles of the world can do about it.
Boser, who owns and operates WebGuerrilla, a web marketing outfit based in Valencia, California, is not alone. An entire industry of search engine optimizers, called SEOs, has sprung up, many of which take advantage of loopholes in the way rankings are calculated.
Google the term "search engine optimization," and you'll find more than 7 million results, with companies like Submit Express ("guaranteed top 10 placement based on your keywords"), SEO ("rank(s) more sites in more top positions than anyone in the business"), and AddMe ("Equip your site for e-success") topping the list.
Since search engines are usually the first stop for online shoppers (with 40 percent of them choosing Google), your business could very well be toast if it doesn't crack the top 10 -- preferably the top 5, which would require no downward scrolling. (Not unlike the increased readership an article that begins above the fold in a newspaper gets.) One study concluded that sites that appear on the first page of results attract six times the traffic they did before landing there and earn double the sales......
I'm pleased to announce that Yahoo! Search is one of several organizations in support of a technique that should help combat weblog comment spam. Others involved are: Google/Blogger, MSN Search, Six Apart (TypePad, MovableType, LiveJournal), and WordPress.
By adding a rel="nofollow" attribute to hyperlinks, webmasters and weblog owners can tell search engines that the links are effectively untrusted.....
The designation gang stalking was officially recognzied by the Santa Barbara Independent Media Center to denote an emerging class of collective behavior (e.g. mobs, riots, crowds) in which corporate shills and industry stakeholders collaborate to harass or defame individuals whose unconventional wisdom or criticism ruffles pride or threatens material interests......
Google, Yahoo, and The Search Engines
Privacy rights advocate Tim Johnsey recently posed an interesting question: "Have we lost our right to fuss about wiretapping and the Patriot Act if we support search engines like Google that represent a more proven and pervasive threat to the privacy of our citizenry?" Search engines like Google offer average citizens a way of spying on their neighbors by allowing not only a search of a person's name, but more importantly, of a person's e-mail addresses and computer source address (i.e. IP address).
The most effective demonstration of the damage that can be inflicted on a victim through Googling is presented in this report by a social psychologist.
And the most damaging aspect of these search engines could not have been more effectively summarized than by a cyberstalker in the unmoderated Usenet news group sci.psychology.psychotherapy: "He who controls Google, controls the world." Cyberstalkers seek to control how their targets are viewed by the world through the eyes of a search engine. A few simple procedures ensures a complete monopoly over the image of an enemy ......
This article on San Diego Indymedia has it all.
Jews control US Government, Jews were responsible for 9/11, Jews are against Christians and on and on. The author says he was "banned on Congressman Conyer's blog". Thank heavens he still has Indymedia for bringing us such information as:We are facing a monstrous take over by the New World Order, and we can't let it happen.
Isn't it time to really seek out alternative energies, solar, tidal, and wind.
Dear citizens concerned for this country,
We must stop the passage of the Hate bill pending the Senate. If passed it will stop all political dissent that mentions any reference to Zionist Israeli influences causing the disastrous Iraq war, and many of the attacks on our country with officials at the highest levels knowledge.
The NSC, FBI and CIA also used an Iraqi national military member in the US, an Israeli intelligence agent inside the US, a US Black Muslim terrorist provocateur, and a German national in the US to monitor, provoke and orchestrate the OKC bombing."
And there's this old chestnut:We learned earlier about the employees of the Israeli instant messaging company Odigo, who were anonymously informed of the attacks two hours before they took place.
Who tipped off Odigo? Who tipped off those Pentagon officials? Who tipped off those Israeli workers in New York? I think it's safe to say it wasn't Osama Bin Laden.
Uh huh (thank you Snopes, the urban mythbuster). For the record, here's Osama's confession and a list of Israelis and Jews who were murdered alongside other Americans on 9/11. I guess Mossad just didn't have them on speed-dial...
It's amazing that the State Department actually need to write such a thing, but I am glad they did. Do a Google search for "9/11" and "Israel" however, suffice to say it won't be in the top-ten...
Anyway... The funniest (not really) part is how upset the author gets at what he sees as "criminalizing the truth":Here is a list of beliefs or activities the U.S. government now considers anti-Semitic:
1. Any assertion “that the Jewish community controls government, the media, international business and the financial world” is anti-Semitic.
2. “Strong anti-Israel sentiment” is anti-Semitic.
3. “Virulent criticism” of Israel’s leaders, past or present, is anti-Semitic. According to the State Department, anti-Semitism occurs when a swastika is portrayed in a cartoon decrying the behavior of a past or present Zionist leader. Thus, a cartoon that includes a swastika to criticize Ariel Sharon’s brutal 2002 invasion of the West Bank, raining “hell-fire” missiles on hapless Palestinian men, women and children, is anti-Semitic. Similarly, when the word “Zionist” is used to describe Sharon’s saturation bombing in Lebanon in 1982 (killing 17,500 innocent refugees); it is also “anti-Semitic.”
4. Criticism of the Jewish religion or its religious leaders or literature (especially the Talmud and Kabbalah) is anti-Semitic.
5. Criticism of the U.S. government and Congress for being under undue influence by the Jewish-Zionist community (including AIPAC) is anti-Semitic.
6. Criticism of the Jewish-Zionist community for promoting globalism (the “New World Order”) is anti-Semitic.
7. Blaming Jewish leaders and their followers for inciting the Roman crucifixion of Christ is anti-Semitic.
8. Diminishing the “six million” figure of Holocaust victims is anti-Semitic.
9. Calling Israel a “racist” state is anti-Semitic.
10. Asserting that there exists a “Zionist Conspiracy” is anti-Semitic.
11. Claiming that Jews and their leaders created the Bolshevik Revolution in Russia is anti-Semitic.
12. Making “derogatory statements about Jewish persons” is anti-Semitic.
13. Denying spiritually disobedient Jews the biblical right to re-occupy Palestine is anti-Semitic.
14. Alleging that Mossad cooperated in the 9/11 attack is anti-Semitic.
And he's furious about it! The list however, reads like a Cliffs Notes for some of the material on Indymedia. Such a nice site.... Such nice people.
We've periodically reported on the antics of far-right maven Hal Turner, who most notably has made a career out of threatening people. This includes issuing threats against judges (and taking credit when one of his target's family members were murdered), calling for vigilante force to "rescue" Terri Schiavo, and demanding we begin shooting Mexican border crossers on sight.
Now it seems that, according to a devastating report from the SPLC, he's been doing it on the payroll of the FBI:On Jan. 1, unidentified hackers electronically confronted Turner in the forum of his website for “The Hal Turner Show.” After a heated exchange, they told Turner that they had successfully hacked into his server and found correspondence with an FBI agent who is apparently Turner’s handler. Then they posted an alleged July 7 E-mail to the agent in which Turner hands over a message from someone who sent in a death threat against Sen. Russ Feingold (D-Wisc.). “Once again,” Turner writes to his handler, “my fierce rhetoric has served to flush out a possible crazy.” In what is allegedly a portion of another E-mail, Turner discusses the money he is paid.
On Thursday, as the E-mail exchange was heatedly discussed on a major neo-Nazi website, Turner suddenly announced he was quitting political work. “I hereby separate from the ‘pro-White’ movement,” he said, adding that he was ending his radio show immediately. “I will no longer involve myself in any aspect of it.”
The FBI declined comment. “Longstanding FBI policy prohibits disclosing who may or may not provide information,” Agent Richard Kolko of the agency’s press unit said. Reached in New Jersey, Turner also declined all comment.
The apparent revelation set off a torrent of criticism from experts in criminology and the use of informants. “This is clearly over the line,” said James Nolan, an associate sociology professor at West Virginia University who is an expert in police procedure and a former unit chief in the FBI’s Crime Analysis, Research and Development Unit. “Informants may be involved in drugs, and you overlook that because of the greater good. However, these are viable threats — they could be carried out — that the FBI clearly knows about. I want to see the FBI stop it.”
Over the years of covering cases involving the far right and federal law enforcement's use of informants, I've certainly seen them indulging the use of some of the most questionable characters for this work. But I don't think I've ever seen anything this irresponsible before.
As Mark Potok of the SPLC put it when I talked to him about this case: "These people were playing Russian Roulette with the lives of the people Hal Turner was targeting."
Potok also spoke with Mike German, a former undercover FBI agent whose work I once covered. "This certainly raises a whole lot of questions that need to be answered in a public forum," he said. "There are strict rules about what an informant is allowed to do, and certainly encouraging or instigating others to commit acts of violence is far beyond what FBI agents should have their informants doing. Aside from the fact that you're possibly encouraging someone to commit an act of violence, there's also the danger that you're actually entrapping that person, which means he would get off."
This deserves to be a significant scandal. We'll see if the press can divert its attention long enough from Britney Spears to bring it to the public's attention.
Controversial talk show host/journalist/webmaster Hal Turner attacked by malicious hackers
The wonderfulfully diligent webmaster Michael Rivero have stated his absolute animosity towards hackers and call for their lengthy imprisonment with steep fine in the past. I whole-heartedly agree with him.
Mr. Turner may be controversial and even reprehensible for his racist point of view as well as encouraging perpetrating violence against certain 'corrupt' government officials, but FREE SPEECH is an important matter no matter how offensive in non-political correct candor and attitude.
As some of you may recall, Mr. Turner reported on the exclusive (albeit unsubstantiated) breaking news titled CHINA TO DUMP ONE TRILLION IN U.S. RESERVES! over a week ago. WRH included the link with a comment by M.R. stating the news is not confirmed.
Unfortunately, Mr. Turner is a victim of Internet harrassment committed by the (apparently juvenile-minded university students killing their time during winter break) hackers whose organization cannot be mentioned since the name itself is repugnant.
Since the page is repeatedly down due to Denial of Service attack at this time of writing, here is an excerpt in which he & his innocent family members were subject to obscene phone calls and other forms of harrassment.
Understandably, he vows revenge through litigation. Barring that, he may take extreme measures if he do keep the word.
Though many, many people may disagree with Mr. Turner's radical point of view, he and others like him do not merit such illegal & immoral acts of harrassment and malice. No family should endure this ordeal.
Such cases must be dealt with according to the laws in enforcement, apprehension and prosecution of individuals responsible for clearly unlawful acts against the man and his family on the ground of his utilizing free speech only to be suppressed by external forces.
UPDATE SAT. DEC . 23, 2006 5:08 PM
After the [phone numbers of unruly prank callers] list above was published, the perpatrators of the original attack upon my show, found and published the home telephone number for my family.
Around 5:00 PM yesterday, my wife began receiving call after call from people harassing her, threatening to rape her, threatening to rape and kill our 12 year old son. The calls continued, non-stop, for hours.
They even went so far as to RECORD a harassing call and put the audio from that call on the internet, in violation of state and telephone harassment laws and in violation of state and federal electronic eavesdropping laws! That single act added another felony to the legal action I am taking against the entire crew.
Then, things got despicable. My 12 year old son answered the phone and the caller told him that they were going to kidnap him, rape him then murder him. My sone has never, ever, been party to my radio show or public life. He has never attended any public funtion with me and to threaten him has caused me to decide the glove scome off.
I have always known that I am a public figure and that folks would criticize me. I have lawsys been prepared for that. I knew early-on that I had to suffer the slings and arrows of spirited public villification and I was prepared for that too. But to target my wife - a woman who has absolutely nothing at all to do with my radio show - and my son - a 12 year old - crossed a line.
Then, in an act of utter depravity, the perpetrators of this effort, gave out the home telephone number of my 62 year old mother in Pennsylvania, and began making harassing and threatening calls to her.
My mom has nothing to do with any of this. She's caring for my step dad as he recovers from leukemia. To call here and threaten to rape, beat and kill her is an act worthy of death.
Snce the law doesn't seem to matter to these scumbags, then I won't let it matter to me as I undertake revenge upon them for going after my wife, child and mother.
There is ONE possible method for preventing my revenge upon you: Tell me the names and addresses of the people involved in threatening and harassing my son and mother. I will forgive the harassment of my wife if you give to me the identities of the people who went after my son and mother.
Cooperate, and you walk. Fail to cooperate and I will punish you with a fury you have never encountered.
I WISH THAT I DID HAVE ANY INFO SO I COULD GIVE IT TO YOU
You are and should go after anyone who would do this to your wife your son and your mother
What in the world is happening here
What a bunch of sick insane dickless morons
I hope you do find them and use any and all measures to deal with this scum sucking traitors
