Maybe that's just what THEY want you to think.

Just going to say that everyone who participated in the massive comment thread about this topic the other night needs to apologize to Mr. Parler and his ones.  Now.  The security of the country is at stake here.

Too bad.

It shouldn't take long, though.

You know, if someone comes up with a terrible lie about you and everyone says 'Hmm. Yep. That seems about right', I don't know that the lie is your biggest problem.

Tim Parler runs a tight ship and the libs need to understand and respect that.

Well, that changes things. I guess.

The entire thing is a massive data mining scheme by the Mercers and if it hasn't already been hacked it will be at some point.

And then things will get real interesting.

The idea is already in MAGAts' heads. They'll tone it down now hopefully.

you can hear the unclenching of the sphincters, that's too bad.

this would have been like unhooding the attendees at a national KKKlan rally.

Mr. Parler's zeroes, however, deserve no apology.

Makes you wonder if their login and passwords are the same at Parler as they are at FarmersOnly.com

Do you FOR REAL have to give Parler your SSN?  Like this is confirmed a thing?

FFS, why am I not in the business of grifting right wingers?

You don't HAVE to give them your SSN, but you do if you want to unlock basic features like direct messaging.

Man, thinking about all the boomers on Parler that gave their SSN just makes me bitterly think about that time I had to give my parents a PowerPoint presentation about why they should let me spend $5 on a RuneScape membership.

Hah! Parler's target audience has been trained to believe that Snopes is a liberal Deep State George Soros operation and that Snopes "debunking" something is actually confirmation that it is true.
 
2020-11-25 6:51:16 PM  
The hack report claimed their personal information, including SSN had been compromised.  If Parler users had to give that level of verifiable information to join a social media site where they intend to spread hate and violence, well *chuckle* that only further confirms how truly stupid racists are.
 
2020-11-25 6:59:41 PM  
If your site doesn't feature honeypot fake accounts to bait the "haxors" then the fool is you.

To be fair parents were right about NeoPets, only it was something far worse than pedophiles:  Scientologists.

It is true that their marketing system (not the actual app) at home.parler.com was a WordPress site and had its config.php file unprotected and revealed to the world. That's what's in that image. It includes the database hostname, admin-level username, and password to the WordPress database. Plus the hash keys and salts for encrypting user passwords and all sorts of other data.
 
2020-11-25 7:11:33 PM  
Urk. wp-config.php file.
 
2020-11-25 7:12:59 PM  
Let me put it this way:

If Parler hasn't already been compromised (maybe it has, maybe it hasn't), it will be soon because it is a tiny FSB front company storing deliciously good identity information that already has proof they can't even handle little things like not making DB / system account information where they can be publicly read.

I apologize for the terrible grammar in my previous post.  Those responsible have been sacked.

Yes and no.

Yes, Scientologist did move in and take over Neopets, and they incorporated many of their weird business strategies. However, there wasn't any readily apparent attempts at actually indoctrinating kids, and the original creators of NeoPets, who were still in charge of the company, fought it every step of the way.

here to help: Damn. I was looking forward to seeing some Neo Nazis crash and burn publicly.


Take your pick on which will make them crash and burn: hackers, each other, getting banned from all app stores/hosting platforms a la 8Chan, or the brand new FBI after January 20th.

How does Parler know the SS number i give them isnt fake?

999-88-6969 is totally a legit SS number

Is Parler just a front for Russian identity theft rings?

/ Why is is spelled Parler and not Parlor?

ReaverZ: Is Parler just a front for Russian identity theft rings?

/ Why is is spelled Parler and not Parlor?


a) Rumor has it it is the Mercer family has a stake in it. They are like the Koch brothers on acid.

b) Parler is French for "talk/speak" and is pronounced "par-lay" (with a rolling R but apparently they are pronouncing it like "parlor" which is of course a place where discussions can take place but it all seems like a bunch of morons trying to be clever about minutea whilst ignring the complete insanity directly in front of their eyes.
