Forum Post: So who owns it now?

The hosting has been moved. So who owns it now? Will they clean out the shills, or do the shills now own it? Just wondering. Inquiring minds want to know.

Interesting!

How did you find out?

Moved to where? To who? Why no announcement? Why not transparency?

[-] 1 points by wittlelittlecloud (-83) 9 years ago

You can do a WHOIS search.

http://whois.net/whois/occupywallst.org

Justine has moved the site to her own server. This is what caused the links at the top to break. She forgot to reconfigured the site. NS1.LOBSTERTECH.COM is most likely the same nameserver used for her blog: http://lobstertech.com/

The admin organization of the site has changed. It is now The Occupy Solidarity Network, Inc., a company founded by Justine. She is the director. On her LinkedIn site http://www.linkedin.com/in/jtunney She describes the following:

Director
The Occupy Solidarity Network, Inc.

"First person to start organizing an international grassroots social movement. Responsible for web and social media destinations like OccupyWallSt.org, @OccupyWallSt, etc. Raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for the movement."


What does this mean for this site? Not much I believe. It's technically more her site than before. Registered under her company name marking her as director. However, even if the site was once owned by Occupy, she always acted like the director. Essentially, the site is now officially hers and no longer officially the community's.


Why not transparency?

This site was never transparent. The moderators were always hidden except for one, and jart barely ever posted here. There's no transparency because it's not a community run website, made for the community by the community.

Most news articles, if not all, are also written by jart. They are always marked as anonymous. It makes the movement seem bigger and more active. Transparency was never a forte for Occupy. It was always one of the biggest problems. It affected donations a whole lot during the first few months.

Ya, let's talk about transparency.? Who the fuck are you again?

[-] -1 points by wittlelittlecloud (-83) 9 years ago

Just a forum user like you, expressing ideas. I don't claim to speak for anyone else, just myself. The problem with this site's transparency is that it is being advertised as news from Occupy, when it is in fact news articles written by jart. This is not correct in my opinion. People should not write under the Occupy name and pretend it represents the whole movement.

You're a multiple ID troll. Nothing more and nothing less. You're a cockroach.

Now, prove you are worth a fuck.

Who the Fuck is You?

[-] -1 points by wittlelittlecloud (-83) 9 years ago

I'm not here to prove anything. I just post ideas. Some like to post profanity, some like to post ideas. It's all good. To each his own. Freedom of thought and freedom of speech are important. If you feel the need to call me a cockroach every chance you get, then that is fine. It is your right. When you are ready to debate ideas using proper debating techniques, I'll still be happy to discuss issues with you.

You don't deal with issues.

You just don't. So stop lying.

You are here to insult people, to lie to and about people, to assume and to chase people away from the forum.

All while remaining issue free.

You add nothing of value.

I rarely, if ever, insult others here. If you think I do, post some examples. Iv'e posted and commented on many serious issues directly related to Occupy. Most of your comments seem like orchestrated mob attacks on my person. You often attack in tandem with GF or DKAtoday when he is not sick like today. Iv'e noticed you use these same mob attack tactics against many new users as well. Are you against free speech? Are you the forum prosecutor? What's up?

You didn't find posting a penis pick insulting?

I guess that just means your a bit of a psychopath too.

Proud of it too, I'll bet.

For instance.

How do you feel about puppets and bot being run in a forum?

I did, but I wasn't the one who posted it.

They don't bother me at all. I only care about the ideas being posted, not who posts them. I don't need to know a person's name, username, or other information about them to read their ideas. If I had programmed this forum, I wouldn't even show usernames with comments. I would just put anonymous every time. This would encourage people to reply to good ideas, and ignore bad ones. People would talk about ideas instead of attacking the users they decided not to like. Ideas are what will be remembered, the user vs user attacks. Those are meaningless.

I have thought that many many times. I see far too much prejudice and petty bickering and protests to ill-perceived insults, and far too little real ideas, with real solutions!!!

[-] 0 points by shoozTroll (17632) 9 years ago

YEP, the post had your name on it. I was there, I saw it,

So you posted it, at least if you're who you are pretending to be.

Issue free though, is more your style.

Glib, insulting and issue free.

Oooops there having "right wing" libe(R)tarain problems in Canada too.

You see?

You're a psychopath and more than a little egotistical.

Issue free. That's you. Insulting too. You insult me and DK all the time.

So you're an unrepentant liar too.

I've given you a serious issue to comment on in every post I've made.

You chose your precious ego........every time.

You're a fucking cockroach.

[-] 0 points by shoozTroll (17632) 9 years ago

nO,no.

You are and you've always been a puppet.

In effect a lie.

You're not like non puppet posters.

You're issue free, and purely assumptive.

The epitome of logical fallacy.

lol. My bad. Apparently she just moved it to a real host. Now my questions; will she breath life back into it? Will news about the Fed and real news about the econ continue being subverted and suppressed? Is it ok to talk fact on here now or is this still going to remain an echo chamber of noise?

You're asking this site and the entire vibe to go back to late 2011.

Unless you have a time machine, I wouldnt count on it.

[-] -1 points by Exhausted (-20) 9 years ago

If I can't have my old user name back, I suppose it doesn't matter. I'm just Exhausted.

[-] 1 points by Renneye (3874) 9 years ago

Have you asked them for your name back, or is it even possible? What do they say?

[-] 1 points by Exhausted (-20) 9 years ago

Idk. If it's going to be more of the same, it's irrelevant.
