A "social network" built on wordpress? Obviously the chuds signing up don't understand, but that is so laughable and it doesn't surprise me it was already hacked.

 

I thought Wordpress itself is fine and that it's the extensions that create the security nightmare?

Yeah, the extensions are definitely the biggest culprit, and wp can be generally safe as long as you keep it up to date. But if someone is making a social network on wp with the configuration shown, chances are they aren't applying all security updates.

So apparently they need to use ID to sign up for this, meaning people have their drivers licenses and shit on there, lol.

 

They collect SSNs if you want to get verified (like the blue checkmarks on Twitter). :lol:

What a horrible amateur mess. I look forward to the DM leaks and complete collapse of the platform after this.

 

They can always go to Gab...in fact, why didn't they go to Gab in the first place? Did it get too libcuck for them?

Can someone explain to me any plausible explanation for why they would need a SSN to verify you?  What conceivable valid reason would they have for needing that?

Why would they try to get something extremely useful for grifting from the terminally grifted? I can't possibly imagine a reason!

I understand the shitty reasons Parler would want them, I meant any legit reason a user would fork them over?

If anyone is interested in Parler history read his thread

 

The TLDR

Is Tech Bro meets Russian on Vacation, they move to Russia. Get married in Government facility that's run by her grandmother who by the way is considered a "Honored Builder of  Russia". Come back to the US to start a right wing "twitter" , the owners of Parler are the tech bro and an unknown LLC out of Delaware. Nothing illegal  but very questionable. Also the first several thousand accounts at Parler belonged to Russian aligned operatives.

 

I know its easy to laugh at these morons but they are a real threat

Shit like this is why there will be no large scale/en masse movement from the major social networks to another. 

 

Normal people don't know what Parler is.

Yes, but the highly visible set who did move there was enough to cause technical problems, let alone reach a level where a social network gets to a nearly self-sustaining level of use/users

A Tech Bro is going to mysteriously find himself divorced and thrown out of a window next year.

I don't know about that. All of my idiot right wing Facebook "friends" wouldn't shut the fuck up about it a few weeks ago. They were all leaving in a. mass exodus because dear leader told them facebook was bad and they are all idiot moron stupid fucking trump supporter dipshits. I mean, facebook is bad, but not for the reasons they think it is. They just think that because they're all fucking dumb people who are dumb dumbies.

 

Eh, this is probably fake, whatever. Fuck all these people. COVID denying trump supporting fucks. I actively am rooting for bad things to happen to them.
