Your Questions About Anonymous Mask

Mandy asks…

Why do people feel the desire to wear a mask that does not nearly show who they are behind it?

I already know some reasons, such as fear of others’ reactions to who they truly are, but I just want to know other reasons, and personal experiences as well, if you are willing.

Does that mask allow you to act freely and completley opposite of who you are? Or, in other words, do you feel the need to be anonymous to do what goes against your nature?
For those that constantly fake their true identity for whatever reasons, have you lost who you are in the process?

barry0912 answers:

Intricate questioning… I really agree that most people fear others’ rejection to who they really are. This is the bulk percentage. I also agree that a mask allows one to act freely, but only as they truly are. If it is a physical mask such as that worn in plays or this avatar, it might allows some to truly express themselves. But if we’re talking about figurative masks, such as displays of a certain personality or use of heavy makeup or embelliment with lifestyle, clothes, etc, then I believe they are displays of insecurity. They are used to cover up deep insecurities and the point is to portray someone who is opposite in nature.

For people who are stage-shy but have talent, their best act could happen with a mask on, or their hair wildly disguising their upfront image. That is because these people are introverted and rich with thoughts, ideas, and emotions and have more to show that stems from inside, leaving them all the more feeling vulnerable. A mask then allows the freedom to be oneself and feel exposed without really exposing the identity that would mean more profound feelings of vulnerability for such sensitive persons. A person of this nature would be prone to wear thick, “physical” masks such as a thoughtful gaze that fronts a deep inner life.

If you’re always in the pack you need only be superficial to belong and if that is your habit then wearing a mask really would hold less meaning. A person of this nature would be more prone then to wear more superficial masks, such as an affect or light disposition that fronts a more superficial inner life.

How do you know people fake their identity? What if it’s real?Many avatars are fragments of a complex inner life, aren’t they? You are “tennis guy”, but aren’t you also a “math champ” or “musician” or “student” or “millionaire” or “American Idol tryout”? (Had to scratch out the “husband” after I read your profile!LOL) We never know many aspects of of a person, however multifaceted behind an avatar at any given moment. It comes down to people’s multiple interests, I guess.

Paul asks…

How can i make an anonymous costume?

I’m trying to make the infamous green body anonymous costume (not the guy fawkes one). I have a good idea on how to make the mask, but how can I make skin tight gloves that go up my arms?

tl;dr: how do I make super long, green skin tight gloves?

barry0912 answers:

Congratulations on your costume idea, it’s quite original! 🙂
for the gloves, I can’t give you any advice if you want to make them yourself, but if you are going to buy them, then I can help you. You have to find gloves that are something like 26-27 inches long (it’s possible that instead of a measure in inches you find the mentions “16B” or “18B”, it stands for the length of the gloves in “buttons”; I would then suggest you to look for 18B gloves. For the gloves to fit very tight, there need to be at least 15-20% spandex in the fabric. From my experience it’s not easy to find such gloves; I would advise you to look for them in more specialised shops like bridal shops or shops that sells formal dresses.

Good luck on your search!!!

Your Questions About Titleist

Thomas asks…

what is the difference in the titleist pro v1 and the prov1x?

i’ve also seen the the pro v1 2007 balls for sale, what is the difference in the 2007 balls and the other years?

barry0912 answers:

The prov1 spins more, and is meant for someone seeking more stopping capability around the green. The prov1x spins less and is meant for someone with a lot of clubhead speed looking for a bit more distance and who doesnt need any more spin around the greens.

As far as changes go from pre 2007. They are minor.

The staggered wave parting is meant to give more consistent ball flight and roll. A.I.M. Or allignment integrated marking…titleist has found the equator of the ball for you and put the little arrows to help you lign up the ball.

Also, titleist claims a softer core, better feel. Those are the big differences from one generation of golf ball to the next in the prov1/prov1x era.

Good luck

Betty asks…

Why do some Titleist AP1 look different in pictures?

When I look at pictures of Titleist AP1s sometimes they have indents on the top bar and some have just a straight bar like the ap2s

barry0912 answers:

The 2010 model looks different than the 2011 model. The same thing goes for the AP2. That may be the reason.

Your Questions About Anonymous Content

Sharon asks…

How do you report defamation email from a John Doe using a yahoo email address?

John Doe sets up anonymous email with yahoo, goes to a public place to send demfamatory falsehoods about people in an organization. Doe accuses criminal actions by members and cautions me that I am liable to report criminal actions to authorities. I am the 3rd party recipient of the email; however, Doe likely is a member of the organization. Specific content stated by Doe is known by individuals in organization. In addition to acusations of criminal actions, Doe portrays certain individuals as diseased and uses intentional defamatory statements to cause people to resign. IP traces to public location; therefore, protecting Doe’s anonymous identity. Emotional distress resulted to accused individuals, leaving no recourse due to Doe’s anonymous identity. What recourse do individuals have when Doe chooses to mask false statements and defamation of character behind fake yahoo address. Free speech does not include defamation of private citizens. Any ideas?

Susan asks…

How can I protect a forums from hacker attacks?

A year ago a hacker by the name of “Anonymous” has started attacking my friends forums by changing signatures into porn links. However as of last week, he has turn Malicious and completely override the site and downloaded a trojan and change every content into “sex”.

This attacker won’t stop. Even after changing administration codes, he won’t stop assaulting. Is there anyway to protect against him or track him down?
I forgot…

The host is I.P Board which is suppose to be strong against hackers and was used by many companies.

barry0912 answers:

With extreme difficulty, and as a novice in the hacking world, probably impossible.

They will have protected themselves against detection and reverse attacks, so unless you engage the services of an experienced hacker with more talent than your attacker to target them, the only thing I can suggest is take down the forums, find a more secure server and start up new ones.

Your Questions About Title Ix

Betty asks…

Why do people say it violates Title IX if college football athletes are given a stipend?

Based on all of these incidents by agents I believe college football athletes of all schools and a certain division should be paid a stipend about the same maybe about $100,000.

It is a known fact that college football brings more revenue to schools than any other male sports or female sports so I find it silly for some to say it would discriminate against athletes of all other sports to play football players more when their sport brings in more revenue.

barry0912 answers:

Technically it wouldn’t, if you also paid some women’s athletes as well, although that would be difficult to afford. Title IX requires funding to fit the “Three-Prong Test” which goes as follows:

1. Prong one – Providing athletic participation opportunities that are substantially proportionate to the student enrollment, OR
2. Prong two – Demonstrate a continual expansion of athletic opportunities for the underrepresented sex, OR
3. Prong three – Full and effective accommodation of the interest and ability of underrepresented sex.

Credit must go to Wikipedia where I stole those from because it was easier than rewording it myself. Anyway, if any of those can be proven a school is in compliance with Title IX. It’s often stated funding for men’s and women’s sports has to be equal, which isn’t quite true, though that probably helps a school be considered in compliance. Scholarships usually are equal, which is why women actually have an easier time getting scholarships in most sports compared to men, as so much money already goes to football and basketball scholarships there are very few left over for other men’s sports, whereas women’s sports generally don’t bring in much money at all and can be more evenly distributed among the sports. And that, I think, is where this would fail Title IX. It would provide more money to male athletes female athletes wouldn’t have access to. Money taken in per sport doesn’t matter, gender alone matters. If money taken in per sport was the deciding factor most sports would cease to exist at the collegiate level because most sports don’t bring in a single cent of revenue.

(By the way, “underrepresented sex” really should be written “women.” Women’s sports can outnumber men’s sports and in fact SEC schools are required to have at least 2 more women’s sports than men’s. Men can be underrepresented with no penalty at all. But perhaps that’s an entirely different discussion.)

There are so many issues with paying football players it’s hard to know where to begin. Besides the simple fact schools probably couldn’t afford it, it would finally finish off amateurism for good in college football. It would probably actually negatively affect men’s sports more than women’s. So much money would be going to football other men’s sports would have to be shut down in order to pay for it and still not wipe out women’s athletics. It would potentially be the end of college athletics as we know it.

I personally would quit watching college football the day they pay the players more than they already get paid. Besides scholarships, you ought to see some of the things they get for free from schools. I had a roommate in college on the track and field team who had all sorts of duffel bags, notebooks, backpacks, etc. He could get directly from the school for free. If track and field athletes are getting that when they bring in a minimal amount of money I can’t imagine what the football players are getting.

Charles asks…

How does the elimination of 171 boy’s wrestling teams (Thanks to Title IX) equal “gender equality”?

Of course it’s all supposed to be about ‘proportionality’. So if more boys voluntary take part in sports activities due to equal opportunity, to enforce ‘equal outcome’ the colleges are either sued, or the teams are disbanded, to allow more girls to enter these activities. Now isn’t that quota messed up? Equal opportunities should not lead to equal outcomes being mandatory forced by law.

barry0912 answers:

They should disband student governments in the same manner if it’s all about equality as they are primarily populated by females.

Really I don’t think they should do for either but if you are going to do it to one; it should be done to both.

Your Questions About Internet Marketing News

Joseph asks…

How private/secure is the internet?

Just wondering, are websites allowed to keep tab on the sites you go, know your name from cookies or something etc. I’M NOT TALKING ABOUT GIVING OUT FREE INFO ON CONTESTS or whatever. Just like… right now, being on any website, what information is being taking, etc.

barry0912 answers:

Kath, like it or not the Internet is the Wild West of data…anything goes.
For starters, how’s this for ‘right now’:
Yahoo! & Google breach of trust to it’s patrons reached a new low.
Both services submissively bowed to advertising conglomerates, by adopting ‘phorm’ inspired “targeted advertising”; a ‘data siphon’ method that directs your clickstream to 3rd party advertisers, and builds a portfolio on your surf habits.
This may make your browser display pop-ups which you have no control over, and may in fact do many other un-requested actions with your entire system.

Google itself has spyware.
From their Privacy Center page
(http://www.google.com/privacy_ads.html)
“No personally identifiable information – We don’t collect or serve ads based on personal information without your permission.”
Notice the last 3 words…yet it is specifically an “Opt Out” condition!

And Gmail, once perceived to be ‘safe’, actually scans all your mail & then selects advertising based on the content. It’s “for your own good….”
http://mail.google.com/mail/help/about_privacy.html

“Google uses the DoubleClick DART cookie on our Google content network …”
These guys are the used car salesman of the internet, very ‘slippery’ characters burying their methods, details & opt out choices with layer after layer, page after page of non-sense & merry-go-round tactics plus non-functioning links, etc.
All I can say is keep trying & get as many of these tracking portfolios killed as you can.

Yahoo! Calls their invasion of privacy “Matched advertising”, and it stems from the ‘Network Advertising Initiative’ (NAI), a conglomerate of advertising kingpins and requires “Opt Out” to defray the advertising tsunami from Yahoo’s partners in this server based spyware/adware (and to stop them from creating a ‘profile’ of you).
“Opt out” sign in pages;
Yahoo here: http://info.yahoo.com/relevantads/
Google here: http://www.google.com/privacy_ads.html
NAI garbage here: http://networkadvertising.org/managing/o…
DoubleClick here: http://www.doubleclick.com/privacy/dart_adserving.aspx

**************
Yahoo has gone insane.
**CRITICAL RECENT DEVELOPMENT**
Get this: the ‘new’ Yahoo by default, allows your Yahoo! Contacts computers, to send to whatever 3rd party software they have on THEIR computer, information about you! Can you believe that!!?
This is something you must end ASAP.
Look in your mail account settings (ya, it’s buried very conveniently) and uncheck this box!

Go to your Yahoo! Mail: near the “Welcome (your name)”, tick the ‘Profile’ link; next page, upper right corner, tick ‘Settings’; next page, near the bottom is the box to uncheck.

This is spying, pure and simple.
And the deterioration of trust with Yahoo! Grows…it’s pathetic.

IMHO: the installation of the 3rd party data siphon servers, @ Yahoo & Google, et al, have for the last 4 weeks or so, been responsible for the Internet wide “glitches” and server interruptions, and is subjecting all users to massive invasion of privacy.

**********
Note: New US Court ruling “…the U.S. Federal Communications Commission that mandate telecommunications carriers must get an “opt-in” before disclosing customers’ information to a carrier’s joint venture business partner or an independent contractor.

The FCC “gave sufficient reasons for singling out the relationships between carriers and third-party marketing partners,” the court said in denying the petition for judicial review sought by the NCTA.”
http://tech.yahoo.com/news/nm/20090213/tc_nm/us_fcc_cable_court

But even this appears to be only a ‘suggestion’ from the court & may be good news; we’ll see.

Norton Internet Security 2009 (NIS 2009) is currently the FASTEST internet security package (at 7mb memory usage only!) (beats kaspersky by 15mb)

Proof http://www.pcauthority.com.au/Review/127995,norton-internet-security-2009-believe-the-hype.aspx

NIS 2009 has the lowest system usage (therefore fastest) product on the market. With high a detection rate of 92% on par with Kaspersky.

Norton Internet Security 2009 is the Fastest (more proof)

Also answerers must understand, a free anti-virus alone can’t fully protect a system.

By the time of answering this, NIS 2010 has just been released. Faster than ever and using new reputation-based technology, this eliminates the old signature-based scanning and opens new potentials for nexgen security.
