When Copyright does not create (AEPI )


greek and proud of it

Copyright is supposed to make creative stuff pay, patents too have there issues (using a hyperlink) so i was amused to hear about AEPI  which is an organisation that collects fees and issues them to artists in Greece (my blog).

AEPI (not here)  made some greek’s rich, but as to paying copyright owners there in debt to €42 million euro’s

So copyright it seems does not promote creativity, you shall be glad to hear that the organisers collected the money but then gave it to themselves because who gives a stuff about to artists.

So next time somebody says copyright works (and they will be a politician) please remember our Greek friends to aiding culture.

opendmarc reporting and extended thoughts

thxI decided to install some very crappy software to get dmarc reporting (my blog) working and adapted a script to suit from a blog,  it works you import, report and expire the db.

This is week long plus blog post so i may contradict myself the longer i document stuff.

However with stuff inbound to the database i got no email reports out which i can assume is due to either an error on my part, the policy not to bother them with strict compliance or the software is broken.

A brainwave I had on exploring this was that as a low traffic host (the zoo is not gmail) that email we do get is strictly controlled by rules where gmail i guess might be lax on say spam where as we are not.

So most of the email dealt with needs no dmarc action.

I will run the import , report and expire once a day and see if dmarc reporting via opendmarc is worthwhile.

Later on with reports being sent i observed some issues…

Dmarc can be abused by marketing people, and it depends on who runs the report address they specified take pure360.com.

It is amusing to note that they also use gmail.

So dmarc might mismanaged by some who might know better.  Does this mean pure360.com dmarc should be ignored? what do you think.

Another retard with dmarc did the below humorous issue – Please note this was collected by dmarc, and sent by dmarc it is not a typo error by a human.

These appear to go hours and hours later that is getting the dmarc report back (rac do send spam) and piss off hosts when it reports back – Oh to be a mind reader.

Yet another brainwave i had was that there is no way to block ‘pfishing’ emails via opendkmarc unless there is a strict policy setup.  Unless you search headers for dmarc rules but thats down to the mta or spambotter not opendmarc.  There is an example below.

Routing loops could be a problem – ala i send mail, they send mail, we mail back etc.  Have to see on that one.  I guess you could turn off reporting which kind of makes dmarc reporting an odd idea to start with.

In the real world i found out:

If you do not import messages into sql and then close down opendmarc (say for an kernel upgrade) then opendmarc deletes the text file is one bug i noticed – not an end of the world issue but occasional one.

Another bug i noticed in 1.3.0 release (1.3.2 is debian experimental) is that opendmarc-reports will still send email out even if you had a typo in the address or email set in script (the zoo has four domains)

I noticed as our dkim signing did not initiate when it should have (my typo).

The sql data is stored although its not designed for humans to read, the xml reports which it makes and we also get from others as the zoo has dmarc are more human readable.

Microsoft (microshit) are pretty crap at dmarc -there reports leave a lot to be desired due to \n issues.

They also bounce failure – this is pure microshit in action. I perceive this as bit spammy.  It took a little time to sanitize here.

Typical crap from microsoft, it was spamcop proof too

Criminals also have odd dmarc setups an good example is quantumaccountingservices . net which is scammy* returned at time of wtiting

Host not found, try again

So i guess your going to get a lot of domains to ignore.

A problem i have is with multiple domain reporting (say mail.zoo mail.zoo1 etc). In the debian 1.3.0 version the first report run for mail.zoo has all the fun the other opendmarc report scripts run but have nothing to report on.  That might be a level of complexity most with one domain and one host never get to see or care about and might be down to the shit sql server it uses.

My adsp and atps lines in dns needed some tweaking since reporting uses port 25 and i use the other port for outbound mail which for over a week i failed to comprehend so this might be a postfix / amavis or some other issue i cannot resolve currently.

The zoo will not be sending reports until we figure out adsp (my blog) even though the sql import and expire work

opendmarc-spam looks interesting although a thought experiment needing a look at source code to guess how it works

That’s about it for opendmarc reporting. Tomorrow I will be delving into the science of mind reading** after all it appears to be a required skill with dmarc.

Karen Matthews versus the McCann’s

Karen Matthews a victim of Harry potters sucess

Karen Matthews a victim of Harry potters sucess

I read that this news item (my blog) from 2008 has now made it to television as a drama.  If you have not being paying attention ‘our Karen’ decided to do a McCann of whom is still missing (probably here) and lost there child in Portugal in an evening.

Apparently the good people of Dewsbury are featured for trying to find the ‘lost’ who would naturally be returned when magic money from Hogwarts was offered.as an reward but not the class divide, or the famous author with the magic money at Gringots*.  Both the McCann’s and the Portuguese authorities have made great use of the libel courts to suppress there story, or let it be known since the truth here means somebody is guilty after all that kind of thing does not happen every day.

Eventually the police found Shannon Matthews and friends confessed to the scam.

Karen Matthews is guilty but i wonder when the McCann story will get a drama made.  Somehow i think not.  Shall we call it selective censorship?

*not a harry potter fan but i think that’s how you spell it

Gay footballers and Crewe Alexandra

Vinny Jones the balls grabber

Vinny Jones the balls grabber

Barry Bennell liked children and as a football scout at Crewe Alexandra had the means to do as he pleased.

There are not a lot of gay footballers in the professional leagues even today – they usually quit and then said something via a great niece i doubt there where any in 1998.

It is 2016 and only now is this case getting msm attention.  I do not give a stuff about football but it would appear there be more gay footballers back then than there are today.

It feels like a cover up and collusion to ignore bad news after all professional footballers must conform to some rules as prescribed by football society.

I am not saying it is ok.  But you might think something is fishy both in media and football circles.


Vazeline – Keith Vaz

kiethvazNews reaches the zoo that Keith Vaz who has taken bribes while an mp (my blog) has been caught with male prostitutes and taking drugs classed as illegal (class a**) by his ‘serous’ self as an respectable person.

Still an member of parliament, now he is back on parliamentary committee duty for criminal justice.   if it was anybody else (my blog)  they would be not in parliament any longer i think.

Funny that.


the blue is viagra yet to take effect

So does this mean class drugs are ok in prisons and elsewhere, i think so i mean if no means yes then clearly this must be leading by example or the Vaz way.

I really don’t care what he took, or has been up his bum, and where his erection device* has been, so perhaps it might be best if Vaz has another heart attack to not answer those missing questions from the media which was rather convenient last time.

Olive oil*** was taken, but the english press are not allowed to report that.   I guess that could be a fun party for Keith and co.

Indian legions of crooks & scammers finally pisses off the wrong people

Phone numbers are pretty random and if your an professional scam  indian (my blog) telling me or the zoo we have a virus*, or tax refund then its safe to say most of us regard those as crime.

What surprised me and many others was that clearly they had been ringing the wrong phone numbers when somebody in the US and elsewhere finally  got the indian police to raid these crime call centres and arrest hundreds of criminals in phone fraud – i was only doing my job seems to be no excuse.

It will be interesting to see if any money is recovered by governments from tax fraud or if the money stolen will remain in India meaning that crime pays well  for india.  Perhaps if it does not it should be recorded as an economics net gain i suggest if this happens it should be called Kkaran Bahree netgain** funds.

Somebody in India did ring the wrong phone number once too many but the zoo is not one of those numbers.

*i had a cold? ** a real Indian who was the first example of bad outsourcing.

Olympic Council of Ireland’s judo thug and ticket touts


Patrick Hickey judo thug and friend of ticket touts

In this (bbc) Patrick Hickey (a member of the criminal sport of judo [my blog]) , has been arrested in Rio,Brazil over illegal Olympic ticket sales who sold 800 tickets to a Kevin James Mallon a ticket tout.

Sport is an opportunity to get rich and nothing else. Do not mistake what you see as anything else and it may explain why nobody apparently is seeing the events live there as Hickey wants too much for them.

Judo and its association with crime just gets better.

Judo a gateway sport to crime

Robert Stilwell judo criminal

Robert Stilwell judo criminal

Robert Stilwell is a gb judo ‘winner’ caught people trafficking (not here). Is this somebody you think worthy of celebrating as a sports hero?

It makes the sport look thugish as well.  Another ambassador of sport (my blog)  for you.  I suppose criminals need a sport too.

public schoolboys only

public schoolboys only

Anyhow i start with public schools, royals earn a lot of money via the olympics at our expense with $25k-$42k watches which breaks the ethics of sport but who cares about them?

Inclusive is a thing and the modern version of naked greeks also failed to include women in its early version, i am looking forward to seeing the Saudi Arabian female water dancing team this year clearly a gold medal prospect with Afghanistan taking the silver.

anti gay toilet in Sochi Russia

anti gay toilet in Sochi Russia

Sport is an expensive undertaking to host for a week which is how the author got interested in the subject and points out the politics that if sport is universal* then the 1920 event had no Germans in it.

A couple of rich people did alright and the citizenry was handed the bill.  Dictators began to love sport in the 1930’s and that trend continues today.

No american jews went to the 1936 event.  Television came in 1960 and those royals kept 5%, the rest was kept for the locals.  This has diminished for the proletariat and makes the hosting of such events less of an economic prospect unless your a dictator.

Sport hit another ethical problem with south africa in 1960, they turned up, this ‘universal’ thing is certainly not that.  Mexico decided to kill its opposition using the olympics as a reason so sport types have a lot of blood on there hands if ancient greece gave the world democracy then clearly sporty types hate it.

KorneliaEnderTerrorism raised it head in the 1970’s when the public made some cities withdraw, others got thirty year debt mountains.  Drugs raised there heads around here and forty years later the Olympics is still mired in pharmaceutics problems.

Political boycotts mired the 1980’s, and commercialisation and bribes became rampant with escort services, free schooling for ioc members are two examples of corrupt and seediness in sport but got the event.

Short term effects are negligible, an influx of smelly sports fans (my blog) means an increase in tourists leaving the host country, and a decrease in normal visitors for many years afterward so after bribes and assuming a country imports potatoes from ireland to feed guests then the benefit goes to ireland for there fine potatoes, global capitalism results in income leaving the hosting country most of it tax free too.

Prices may rise for all.

Long term effects are non existent for most, low income housing, jobs are destroyed replaced by gentrification and the tax payer ends up funding the thing which a few do well out of and Sochi* is an good example of that although other examples are run through..

samaranch the nazi who ran sport

samaranch the nazi who ran sport

The conclusions to this are interesting and show the flaws in this corrupt anti human rights mega sports events.  Will things change i doubt that many will want to give up $42,000.00 watches for free, along with free sex, and schooling so probably not anytime soon

5/5 bananas.
