    From the NYT:
    Over the weekend, Parler shot to the top of Apple’s App Store in downloads. As of Monday, it had eight million members, nearly double the 4.5 million it had last week. Rumble said it projected 75 million to 90 million people will watch a video on its site this month, up from 60.5 million last month. And Newsmax said more than 3 million people watched its election night coverage and that its app has recently been in the top-10 daily apps downloaded from Apple’s App Store.
    Recently trending on Twitter is the hashtag #ParlerHacked along with #ParlerLeaks

    This piqued my curiosity, and I found
    OSINTtechnical on Twitter: "Effectively all the info on Parler got hacked. (disclaimer this doesn't actually contain any personal or hacked info it's just verification of the hack itself) https://t.co/vaVD7dn7e8" / Twitter

    Brian Tyler Cohen on Twitter: "Congrats to everyone who moved to Parler, which has already been hacked. Turns out maybe you shouldn’t trust Dan Bongino to build a secure social network." / Twitter

    Atanu Mukherjee, PhD/UF on Twitter: "@briantylercohen Word is that a tons of really really bad DMs were compromised & those were from prominent Republicans.

    I want some samples. ������ #ParlerHacked #ParlerLeaks #Parler #Parleys" / Twitter
    Is this you? I amplified fake news and didn’t even realize it | by OsintTechnical | Nov, 2020 | Medium
    Point taken. Also the tweet that claims the hack was verified is unavailable.

    Why? What process in your brain led you to think I'd have some kind of fanatic devotion to a particular tech startup?

    Why shouldn't I be? This board is non-stop bashing by people who are selective about their targets. But it is incumbent upon me to be ecumenical when I select who to criticise?

    Wow, you simply cannot handle my actual thoughts, can you? I didn't say Parler was good or bad. I said it was less good than it could have been. I don't use it or follow anybody on it so I don't actually know what it's like. (I became a member to reserve a screen name/handle).

    I'm just not a very good capitalist, because I haven't perceived the gap in the market on this board for Trump-bashing. I mean, a cleverer person than I am might have been able to squeeze another Trump-bashing thread among the multiple started per day. And of course if you can get an OP in, it's an easy market of replies, all saying 'yes'.

    I thought you were all for free expression? Why does Trump bashing bother you so much? Are you triggered?

    Then why complain about Trump bashing? You complained about leftists complaining about Parler and asked why they were so "obsessed" with Parler. Why are you so obsessed with people complaining about Trump?

    I didn't complain. I responded to your strange claim that I should pick my targets less selectively. I pointed out that that is not a demand you make of other people on this board, some of whom start multiple Trump-bashing threads per day. I also pointed out that my starting a Trump-bashing thread on this board is deciding to enter a saturated market.

    The Conservative-Loved Social Media Site Parler Is Being Overrun With Pornography

    The free speech social media site Parler has blossomed into a mecca for conservatives, especially, especially in the wake of Donald Trump’s presidential loss. One problem, though: The service’s moderation is so limited that it’s in danger of being overrun by pornography. A new report by The Washington Post says that it’s in danger of becoming a “magnet for pornographers, escort services and online sex merchants,” which bait innocent users with hashtags like #keepamericasexy and #milfsfortrump2020.

    In fact it was one such hashtag — namely #sexytrumpgirl — that shocked Parler users one recent night, when, the Post reports, “images of topless women and links to hardcore pornography websites appeared at a rapid-fire rate, often more than one per minute.” One minute a Trump fan could be ranting about disproven voter fraud, the next they could be sold, let’s say, a Jared-themed dildo.

    Pornography has had a hard time with social media sites like Facebook and Instagram, which ban sexually explicit images. Parler used to ban it, too, but they recently revised their rules to allow anything that’s legal — including sexually explicit images of adults. Users can find pornography if they seek it, but there is now an influx of merchants. And unlike Twitter, which prevents excessive rapid posting, Parler has no such ban, leading to the #sexytrumpgirl headache.

    While Parler wants to keep their open-door policy — it’s why conservatives have been flocking there in the first place — they also, says a higher-up, “don’t want to be spammed with pornographic content.” Meanwhile a professor of computer science at University of California at Berkeley had a grim warning for the service. “When you say, ‘We don’t moderate content,’ you are inviting this content,” he said, adding, “My prediction is they will be overrun with this stuff.”
    When conservatives realize they cannot win democratically, they will not abandon conservatism. They will abandon democracy.

    Poverty exists not because we cannot feed the poor but because we can't satisfy the rich.
