I’m going to be right up front about how I feel if that’s OK with you, and if you don’t like it ban me NOW rather than waste my time and yours. And believe me you won’t hurt my feelings one bit. I know the game and I know it well. I have been involved in this for a long time - even before 9/11 ever came along.
So please allow me to “falsely” introduce myself, and for the lack of a better word, I am an internet impersonator. I sometimes call myself Raimondi Valenzuela or some such variation. This in NOT my real name - Its a fake name, with a hidden ISP address and I will never reveal any information about who or where I am other than to say that my objectives are similar to yours except to say that we have vastly different ways of going about things particularly in the area of "freedom of expression” in any form."
I have been watching things here for awhile now and finally decided to register although I'm not sure if I'll be making any further posts or not - depends. This is nothing personal because it isn't just your site that I speak of here. The reason I haven’t joined up is that I don’t care all that much for the way this place is run. Its a bit too restrictive when it comes to individual ideas and opinions, and there’s too many 'bosses' trying to control those ideas by attempting to make them fit the leaders narrative - sometimes coercively through either intimidation, or by an outright humiliation of a particular OP. I've seen it so please don't say it isn't so, because it is. Nothing new there actually, but I will say that I thoroughly despise the manner in which almost ALL of the so-called ‘truth forums’ that I have either visited or have been a member of conduct themselves when to comes to ‘free E-speech’ – so this forum really is no exception. That said, at the first hint of an abridgement of my personal rights as a free thinking person - from no matter whom – I’m outta here.
Regarding issues of security and personal privacy: I filter all internet connections through two proxies and do not use a PC. I do not operate through standard browsers such as I.E. but use Linux or something other than Microsoft, which is a CIA/NSA collaboration.
I think there's an inherent danger to "Introductory" threads such as this one is. Data scavengers are all over the place hired out of NSA, or whatever, so making public things such as your address, either ISP or city and country of origin is not a good idea IMHO. People also tend to give away far too much information about themselves when responding to such requests as can be attested to in this very thread.
In closing - call me anything you want to - paranoid, suspicious, shill, lurker, spy, Jesuit, blah, blah, blah - I've heard it all before and I'm sure I'll hear it all again.
PS - I just saw this and I must say its an encouraging sign - Private Internet Browsing viewtopic.php?f=29&t=144#p1485191
