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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Zerochance: 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.

Isitoveryet: 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.


I mean, they're already on Parler.

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

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.
