Very good bellydancer
Most think of bellydancing as a middle eastern thing, but bellydancing exists in other cultures

People leaving FA
By Tory Phoenix in the Facebook group Greymuzzles. Posted here with permission

Was gonna post this as a simple comment. Then i got off on a rant. So here it is.

Not to be overly combative but, FA has been down a few times? 4, 5, 6 times? Thats a pretty gods be damned good record, given the size and activity level of the site.

Hell. 10 times in 1 year would be a great record for a site like FA that doesnt have corporate enterprise level backing for technology. Have you only been on the Internet for a few days or are you just that petty? Do you just not know?

I am IT. I have my AS and BS in IT with a focus in security. I have a bit of insight therefore.

I am getting really tired of ignorant furs spouting off with hearsay that they got from a fur that knows a fur that knows a fur that heard x from a fur they know. All so they can pop off with some BS about showing them (FA) that you mean business? Are you kidding me with that shit? This isn't Target or Walmart. Is Dragoneer raking in the bucks and living like a king and I don't know about it?

Then I don't hear that in some general group where there are younger furs, but here? Really? Grow up. Just get over yourselves already.

From what I saw. The FA team, from a security standpoint, did as much right as they could. They are not an enterprise IT department. They had backups. Maybe not as often as we, likely even they, would like, but they had them. They did security right in that the email and password file was encrypted. Guess what. There are businesses that handle your financial info that don't do that, even if they should as it is basic best practice.

They also didnt try to recover the known compromised files. WHICH IS THE RIGHT THING TO DO YOU FREAKING MORONS!!!!!

Those files were COMPROMISED and therefore suspect. They deleted files, the hackers, they could have infected those that were not deleted as well as those that were deleted and might have been recovered.

Not putting those files live and placing the site, and the users, you idiots bitching and saying you'll 'go elsewhere' and 'show them' or that you 'mean business' at risk.

You should be counting your damn lucky stars that FA is following best practice security wise. And the tech they would need to prevent this outright, to do the constant backups you are demanding. 10s of thousands. 10s of thousands of dollars many mid size for profit companies dont have

Locking guns up where kids can't get them
Locking guns up where kids can't get them. I asked "I've heard of there being opposition to bills that impose penalties on adults who leave a gun where a child can get it. How are those a threat to our 2nd amendment right?"

I was told "Safe storage is a prerequisite of firearm ownership. A law that requires you to all but render the weapon inoperable when in your home defeats the purpose of owing one for defense of your home. It's another attempt to legislate away your personal choice based on the bad decisions of a small minority"

If you've ever had a Furaffinity
and you used the same password anywhere else, you need to change your password.

We have temporarily put the site into Read Only mode while we work on implementing additional security measures. We have just learned the attackers have access to personal user data, such as encrypted passwords and email addresses.

We will be making improvements to the login page and password reset tool to increase security on those pages. Once the changes are complete, we will provide instructions on how to reset your password. We apologize for the inconvenience

Cloudchaser's Tailwags & other stuff *toothy grin*
Unless specified otherwise, I did not write any of this. This is just funny things I've collected that I like enough that I want to share it with others. Much the same way that all of y'all have heard funny things that you later shared with others because said things made you laugh :-)

"When my wife wanted me to stop acting like a flamingo, I had to put my foot down."

"Sometimes the thoughts in my head get so bored they go out for a stroll through my mouth. This is rarely a good thing"

"A marriage is always made up of two people who are prepared to swear that only the other one snores."
The Fifth Elephant, Terry Pratchett

"Whenever someone asks me to sign their cast, I always like to write: "Last warning, you have a week to get the rest of the money together."

"Choosing" to be gay
This is so true. Even more so for gay people in many parts of Africa, the middle east, Russia and other places where gay people are treated far worse than what they are in this country. Why would anyone choose to go through such awful persecution?

"Your letter is a perfect example of an argument against those idiots who declare that “being gay is a choice.” Who would choose to go through the kind of anguish you’re going through when it would be so much easier in our society to be straight? Answer: no one. Talk to any homosexual man or woman, and they will likely tell you that it was a tremendous struggle for them to be gay. For many, like you, it’s harder to accept yourself as gay than it is to tell family and friends you are gay"
