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!!!

How can i play share market?

If you haven’t a clue about the Stock Market, the simple answer is “DON’T.” There are opf course ways to learn but I don’t think the answer is to dive in at the deep end as Trading is simply another form of gambling. OK You might lose a few £s backing a horse but you stand to lose very large sums if you don’t know what you are doing. Just look at Barings and some recent news items – and these were professionals.
If you mean you want to INVEST and not simply make a quick buck, then you have to be patient, get to know the companies you want to invest in, although you might have to wait till the price reaches a realistic profit level or wait for the dividends to come in. Why not sign up to one of the internet publications (Citywire, Motley Fool etc) and open a Virtual Portfolio and try your hand for a few months using a an imaginary sum which you think you could afford to lose. In the end you might want to chance your luck or decide to go on line just to read the Dandy.

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.

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.
