Revision as of 07:50, 3 June 2012

Here I give examples of the signatures I have used on various forums.

Compare Tepples's Slashdot signatures. However, as previously stated:

  • I will not name specific forums.
  • Most of these signatures are intended primarily for humor, as opposed to promoting my position on a specific issue.
  • This list will never be comprehensive.

Deployed

Active

Magibon: Staring in the Copyrobeast's face since 2006


The problem is that the world is run by neurotypical businessmen who just want to see results now.

Retired

"Ubuntu: Linux for Human Beings"...as opposed to what?
Linux for extraterrestrial life-forms?


It is pitch black. You are likely to be eaten by a grue Morlock.


Why I don't use Google Chrome
(the link points to https://www.eff.org/https-everywhere)
Originally, HTTPS-Everywhere was available exclusively for Firefox because other browsers lacked the necessary APIs. There is now a public beta for Chrome, but I will not consider using Chrome as my browser due to Google's poor track record on privacy. Also, HTTPS-Everywhere for Chrome doesn't currently play nice with other content-filtering extensions due to limitations of the WebRequest API used by these extensions. (There are other reasons that I don't use any Chromium-based browser at all, but that is beyond the scope of this discussion.)

Pending deployment

The Urban Dictionary entry for tor does not mention that Tor. I am disappoint.
Dubious, mainly because Urban Dictionary accepts user submissions. For the end see ohinternet:I am Disappoint.
