This article states that this information comes from Cybernews. I think it’s from this article: https://cybernews.com/news/whatsapp-data-leak/ The precise number of phone numbers leaked per country is presented in a table. This same Cybernews article also writes about their article from last year mentionning a 533 million users Facebook leak. https://cybernews.com/news/leaker-says-they-are-offering-private-details-of-500-million-facebook-users/ In this article from 2021, there is a forum screenshot where the phone numbers leaked by country are exactly the same as the ones listed in the table from this year’s article. You won’t make me believe the data is different from last year.

As the 533 million phone numbers were available for free since last year, in my opinion a random scammer downloaded it and reposted it now, trying to make a quick and easy profit. He just scrapped some countries to cut down a little the total number. I supposed he did this to not look too suspicious.

However, the hacker did not specify how they obtained the data, suggesting they “used their strategy,” and that all the numbers belong to WhatsApp users, said the report.

lol

What is concerning here is the lack of analysis from Cybernews. They publish two articles in a year about a Facebook leak, they link the two articles but they fail to at least compare pictures in them.

No they don’t. They create an article in 2022 without mentionning the leaked data is from 2019 while all the necessary data for them to arrive at this conclusion is on their website. They publish data, not information. This is not journalism.

And BGR.in only seems to be able to make a poor copy and paste.

I downvote this post due to the terrible quality of the article.


E-mail providers could configure another character for subaddressing, broadly accepted in forms, but they stick to this plus sign sadly.

I think about trying to buy a domain name, and playing with catch-all and ignore rules to avoid spam while creating a custom subaddressing setup on a custom domain. Source: this Mastodon post https://chaos.social/@silmaril/108878671259313909

Your comment reminds me the PeerTube situation. Only one developer was needed to create this YouTube alternative.


The article mentions it will be better later this year:

Nextcloud Social is available as an alpha version for earlier releases, with an update to Hub 3 coming soon. The team at Nextcloud is working with the community to add new features and give users a way out of the Big Tech sandbox. We will make the updated Nextcloud Social a default part of Nextcloud later this year.


They did an overhaul specifically because of Musk according to their blog:

That is why we began working on Nextcloud Social, to make sure there would be a credible alternative by the time the deal closed.

You can see and comment Lemmy posts from Mastodon.



Adam Conover made a video on how the Patagonia dude avoided paying billions in taxes, why allowing billionaires to hoard power is terrible for the planet, and how they use their money to buy the public's love. Also an explanation of his tax break operation: https://www.npr.org/2022/09/20/1124177696/patagonias-tax-break-explained





Well if he could increase the power a little bit in winter and decrease it a little bit in summer that would be better! 😃
