Potentially everyone

I can't speak for others, but that particular hacker was clear that they had only saved posts made on Parler. They don't have DL info, credit card numbers, phone numbers, addresses, etc. unless people actually posted them. They wanted to preserve evidence of Jan 6 planning/execution, not doxx anyone in a public way.

A smart move, tbh, aside from being ethical. If you're going to exploit a site's weaknesses for what you think is a noble purpose (preserving evidence), you should make sure your own conduct is unimpeachable.

Did the site say why they required the information? Doesn't seem too bright for someone to be making death threats against people when their user account can easily be traced back to a specific identity. Seems like the perfect scenario for Homeland Security and/or law enforcement to stop attacks before they happen...


my assumption was to keep the site free from bots and fake accounts. i didn't complete signing up for obvious reasons, don't want my info out there in the hands of the wrong people. i'm glad i didn't go that far.

Do you pass that screening?

What do you do if the secret question is What is your favourite song?

Have you ever sealioned a sign up page because it wouldn't accept the answer to your secret question?

The 'secret questions' would be for account recovery, not for confirming the user as a human...

...and the favorite song one is problematic, but I've always been able to change it to a question that I would remember the answer to.

I would imagine the favorite song one might be problematic for music people too- - I thought that favorite songs tend change for people.

It should be easy for you. "All music is noise to me" would be pretty unique too

It's a bit much for a phrase that I need to type in exactly. Keeping it to a single word like "Noise" would work better.

If your favorite music genre is noise, I have some GREAT recommendations, actually. Never knew you were into that scene.

Whatever.

System: What is your favourite song?

User: This question is problematic because my favourite song varies according to my mood

System: F*ck off CD, I've been warned about you.

"The Court rejects any suggestion that the public interest favors requiring AWS to host the incendiary speech that the record shows some of Parler's users have engaged in. At this stage, on the showing made thus far, neither the public interest nor the balance of equities favors granting an injunction in this case,"
