No one ever sees themselves as the bad guys. Even the most objectively evil act is spun as, if not good, at least neutral.

Several ransomware gangs posted lengthy anti-U.S. screeds, viewed by NBC News, on the dark web. In them, they defended their practice of hacking organizations and holding their computers for ransom.

You're not hackers; you use exploits actual hackers make as proof of concept code, throw it into some shiatty trojan someone else largely made, from the encryption to the cryptocurrency, pack it up, and then send it off as spam.  Through all elements of this, you're basically just thieves--and not even remotely Gruber-family level.

"First, an attack against some servers, which the U.S. security attributes to REvil, is another reminder of what we all know: the unilateral, extraterritorial, and bandit-mugging behavior of the United States in world affairs," the group wrote. "With all the endless talks in your media about "ransomware-is-bad," we would like to point out the biggest ransomware group of all time: your Federal Government."

So....he's Russian.

Bart: Uh, say, are you guys crooks?
Fat Tony: Bart, is it wrong to steal a loaf of bread to feed your starving family?
Bart: No.
Fat Tony: Well, suppose you got a large starving family. Is it wrong to steal a truckload of bread to feed them?
Bart: Uh uh.
Fat Tony: And, what if your family don't like bread? They like... cigarettes?
Bart: I guess that's okay.
Fat Tony: Now, what if instead of giving them away, you sold them at a price that was practically giving them away. Would that be a crime, Bart?
Bart: Hell, no.

Dear ransomware people. If I had the ability, I'd tie each and every one of you to a chair and smash your nuts with a tack hammer for a solid minute each.
That's what I think about your "harassment". Go fark yourselves with a dull chainsaw dildo.

This is the chance to finally make an example of these societal leeches... if we can't execute them (and we should) the very least we can do is imprison them under the harshest possible conditions as a warning to the others.

Notice that they don't hold Mexican "large business" for ransom?

They don't want to be found strung up by their ankles with their entrails in a bowl.

In other news, Russian gangsters publish a screed on the devastating effect the US law enforcement has had on their efforts to give downtrodden and forgotten women good paying jobs and maligning importers of valuable labor.

Honestly I'd have more sympathy if they were only hitting large megacorps that deserve it. But no, they're hitting hospitals and infrastructure.  So yeah, get farked.

soopey: While I loath these people and their "business" I find it amusing they have better technical and customer support than Comcast or AT&T.


Actually, the best service you'll ever get from a business like Comcast or AT&T is with making payments. They will go 1000% father in helping walk you through everything necessary holding your hand step by step to give them cash... than making sure you're getting service from them.

What you're comparing the ransomware support to should be that, not the service and technical support.

The equivalency here would be if you expected the ransomware people to help you encrypt all your files in the first place, and then the decryption process. Do they do that too?

Weirdly enough, I've heard many of them do. Before you pay them money they will point to legitimate reviews about how they helped people get all their data back after they pay. They want you to feel that paying is worth it and you will really get your data back, and they follow up on that.

Sad that they'll never see justice.

Justice for them being a couple of guys with funny ethnic nicknames working over their knees with baseball bats for a bit.  Then when they call the hospital for help they find out it's closed due to a ransomware attack locking up all the computers.

Best way I've ever heard it put was, "If you kill someone, you should die.  If you inconvenience 10 million people, you should die.  The area under the curve is the same...it's the same thing."  I can't really argue with the sentiment...

I didn't think that a celibate designation could be taken away via force?  As for the involuntary portion of the victim's title, that's very much reinforced by the need to force oneself on the unwilling victim.

If the incel is committing rape, they aren't celibate. It's not whether it's voluntary or not, they can no longer be an incel. The discussion on the other side is where the debate could lie. Can an incel be one of they are raped? Well it wasn't voluntary on their side or our wouldn't be rape, but celibate is open to debate. AFAIK, there's no condition on that being voluntary. And why would there be? It just means you aren't having having sex (in this context). Rape is still sex, isn't it?

The question remains how long do you have to go after sex before celibate can be applied again.

Because the law of supply and demand doesn't work for things people need. Unlimited demand means people get squeezed or they die.
