BingoBoingo: It's a mad world [01:43]
mircea_popescu: billymg, some dood bought it in bankruptcy proceedings last year. "23 million '''''''''visitors''''''''' " commanded ~$1.5mn. contrasting with one can peg intervening inflation at 300% over seven years. [01:43]

asciilifeform: meanwhile, in olds, asciilifeform's 'xor 2 small numbers'+'say fg baud' spam filter seems to be 100% effective (a 1st?!) -- 0 spams in trap since installed ( legit comments , not many , but work -- tho there were never many ) [11:49]
mircea_popescu: a spam trap with 0 spams in it is not much of a trap hm ? [12:02]
asciilifeform: lol reduntant heh [12:02]
asciilifeform: *redundant [12:02]
mircea_popescu: oic [12:02]

asciilifeform: well no, wouldn't be interesting then, they still manage to take occasional shit [12:04]
mircea_popescu: "my concubine -- just when i figured she's about to deliver, she turned out to be fulla shit." [12:04]
asciilifeform: ( dozen or so actual comments since glued in ) [12:04]
asciilifeform: i gotta bake a 'recent comments' thing like mircea_popescu has , tho ( possibly will crib from his ) [12:05]
mircea_popescu: whainot. [12:05]
asciilifeform: when i get a chance to fiddle with my wp again, tho, would 1st like to find & kill the uniturdation thing [12:06]
asciilifeform: presently i have nfi where it is [12:06]
mircea_popescu: which ? [12:06]
asciilifeform: where it corrupts quotes, ellipsis, longstrokes, into uniturds [12:06]
mircea_popescu: oh. lmao. [12:07]
asciilifeform: i cant fathom presently why that is even in there. but possibly this q dun have a logical answr [12:07]
mircea_popescu: the evil wreckers of the 90s were systematic in their dedication to destruction (called "democracy" and "humanism" whatevber bla bla in-universe) [12:07]
asciilifeform: even through ~this~ lens, seems peculiar. ( what does it achieve for'em, to litter www with бнопня вхрюк [12:09]
mircea_popescu: they perceive that opposition===conservative and their understanding of "conservative" is "would never break with tradition" [12:09]
mircea_popescu: a mistake powered by the fact that up until they came about tradition consisted of naggum's library. so of copurse thinking man wouldn't part with it. [12:10]
asciilifeform: for lack of any other hypothesis, i'ma buy [12:10]
mircea_popescu: the most disconcerting thing to pantsuit is the stance. [12:10]
mircea_popescu: "what do you mean, you will burn ALL the books ?!?!" "of course i will, keks." [12:10]
mircea_popescu: so in their view, the fact that the uniturds ~are already there~ binds us to forever keeping them. [12:11]
asciilifeform: i.e. 'dun matter that you took the sweat to write it in king's english, we're gonna throw hieroglyphs in' ? [12:11]
asciilifeform: makes sense [12:12]
mircea_popescu: just like in their view, the fact that they befouled science with their politico idiocy means something about science. they didn't, by their lights, made the profession of "earth scientist" nigh on impossible for the average man. they, on the contrary, are forcing my hand when it comes to such topics.

Mocky: a couple years ago they bumped the penalty for fake sticker up from violation to misdemeanor. and also added it to the auto-plate-scanning-database system in most cop cars so alarm goes off for cop every time a car with expired inspection in the morning database goes past. [17:12]
Mocky: for motorcycles tho, they check lights and tires only. NC is not strict like NY, more like how asciilifeform describes. [17:14]

    Got any questions? Let's talk
    hey, how come you don't list it's like, top 500 in adult niche, what gives.
    12:42 PM
    Can't wait for my reply?

    Enter your email and get notified when I answer
    12:43 PM
    12:43 PM
    12:44 PM
    12:44 PM
    how is this a porn site?
    12:44 PM
    cuz like
    12:45 PM
    most of that site's traffic are display ads
    people stay for 13 seconds
    I don't even what know what the site is about at first glance
    I still don't know
    12:46 PM
    ok... but it's still bigger than most other things you review, yeah?
    12:47 PM
    I review porn sites
    this site isn't a porn site
    and most of the traffic that it received is purchased
    12:48 PM
    if we go through the list, most of the traffic will be purchased everywhere.
    it's how traffic works, yes.
    12:48 PM
    I'm not even sure why you're recommending this site to me
    12:49 PM
    hey, similarweb lists it as adult.
    12:49 PM
    check it yourself
    where do you see porn?
    12:49 PM
    nothing else you review is above it.
    so i was curious about your logic.
    12:49 PM
    or how is this a site that deserves to be listed
    I'm still figuring out what it is
    every time you refresh the website, it shows a different blog post
    randomly taken from their archive
    12:50 PM
    well like bring&e=its#select or life&e=fun#select
    it's not ONLY porn, it's crossover, which... you know, it's the '20s, not the 90s anymore.
    if you stick with it's straight porn. even if you refresh.
    12:52 PM
    nobody cares about that site, when I check the stats
    and as I said, I'm still figuring out what the site's main concept is
    it's also outdated as fuck
    no https
    12:53 PM
    let's try a different approach.
    anything on your list in xxxx alexa? not even half, right?
    12:53 PM
    looks like it was made in the early days of the internet and hasn't been updated ever since
    what does it matter what kind of alexa or similarweb ranking a site has?
    and as I said, most of its traffic is purchased
    I can make a site top 100 tomorrow, if I buy traffic for it
    12:54 PM
    hey, that's the question. what do you think matters?
    but i mean, this is so fucking weird... "i could have a ferrari too, if i bought it". oookay? this means something?
    12:54 PM
    honestly, I'm not sure what you're trying to do
    if you like that website, alright, but the majority of people don't
    12:55 PM
    your site is actually #102 on similarweb ; and you do buy some traffic, like everyone.
    12:55 PM
    pretty much NOTHING you review is, though. i mean you've got the top sites there, brazzers, whatever, which honestly, nobody visits because they read your review. and then you got... nothing on a stick, cookie cutter bs like ... i dunno, take
    it doesn't get 5% of the traffic trilema gets, so any discussion of "most people" is moot -- the rest of the 95% aren't even there to not like it.
    12:59 PM
    hey, nobody is forcing you to visit ThePornDude
    if you think trilema is the next best thing, that's your opinion
    1:00 PM
    that's all fine, but i was curious if there's some logic at work or just whatever, inertia, "i don't know wehat it is so it doesn't exist".
    maybe i don't understand something.
    1:01 PM
    as I said, the first thing what should be clear when you visit a website is its concept
    what does it stand for
    what is it about
    1:01 PM
    apparently it's about mystery, what the fuck do i know.
    1:01 PM
    satisfy a customer's need, as easy and as fast as possible
    so I'm looking for porn
    you show me trilema
    so where's the porn?
    you already lost me
    and that's me, ThePornDude lol
    what do you think the average porn visitor will do?
    1:03 PM
    well, i gave you a coupla links, what can i say.
    1:03 PM
    think about it
    I'm looking for porn and I end up on trilema
    where's the porn?
    it's a maze
    1:03 PM
    evidently the average porn visitor goes on trilema. in fact, more averagte porn visitors go to trilema than any other site you review. this is a fact, unless you're gonna replace the actual traffic measurements with your say so.
    1:03 PM
    you know how a lot of people used to pretend they're on playboy "to read the articles"?
    that hasn't changed.
    1:05 PM
    that's why tube sites killed all the blogs...
    1:05 PM
    apparently not.
    1:05 PM
    look, seriously : your #4 recommendation for premium porn sites, getting utterly creamed :
    you think 1.3mn compares to 13mn because what? because "Tubes killed blogs"? gimme a break, it's nonsense.
    1:07 PM
    nobody is stopping you from creating your own site, where you recommend trilema
    but if trilema wants to be a top source for porn, it needs to change A LOT
    that's just my opinion
    just as you have yours
    1:08 PM
    fair enough.

    Cute, I guess... it's almost as if they've got a stack of bullshit at the ready and just pop the next item from there "in response" to anything whatsoever. Actually... that's exactly how the pleb "mind" works, ain't it. The lookup table of bullshit, ~= proleAI.

    Anyways, is Alex Pop the new anonyname of the peanut gallery or what.

    Damn, apparently the slight inlineing of my own comments bit it at some point -- probably related to cssing for these log postings ?

    I guess Ima have to have it looked into.
