Taliban accidently CC's everyone on email list

News, email, enemy

In a Dilbert-esque faux pax, a Taliban spokesperson sent out a routine email last week with one notable difference. He publicly CC'd the names of everyone on his mailing list.
The names were disclosed in an email by Qari Yousuf Ahmedi, an official Taliban spokesperson, on Saturday. The email was a press release he received from the account of Zabihullah Mujahid, another Taliban spokesperson. Ahmedi then forwarded Mujahid's email to the full Taliban mailing list, but rather than using the BCC function, or blind carbon copy which keeps email addresses private, Ahmedi made the addresses public.
"Taliban have included all 4 of my email addresses on the leaked distribution list," tweeted journalist Mustafa Kazemi, a prolific Kabul-based tweeter with more than 9,500 followers. "Quite reassuring to my safety."
The list, made up of more than 400 recipients, consists mostly of journalists, but also includes an address appearing to belong to a provincial governor, an Afghan legislator, several academics and activists, an ... Afghan consultative committee, and a representative of Gulbuddein Hekmatar, an Afghan warlord whose outlawed group Hezb-i-Islami is believed to be behind several attacks against coalition troops.

The Taliban, they're just like you in that they hate email too sometimes. Also created twitter meme #Talibansubjectlines.


Twinkie lovers…

News, resist political, joke

A new White House petition wants President Obama to nationalize the "Twinkie industry," saving the popular junk food from possible extinction.

"We the undersigned, hereby request Barack Obama to immediately Nationalize the Twinkie industry and prevent our nation from losing her sweet creamy center," a petition on the White House "We the People" website requests.

Hostess Brands Inc. — maker of the Twinkie, the Ding Dong and Wonder Bread — is preparing to shutter operations amid a labor strike and rising costs. Unionized workers rejected a major pay and benefit cut, sparking the latest strike.

Labor leaders Political remark removed

"What’s happening with Hostess Brands is a microcosm of what’s wrong with America, as Bain-style Wall Street vultures make themselves rich by making America poor. Crony capitalism and consistently poor management drove Hostess into the ground, but its workers are paying the price," AFL-CIO president Richard Trumka said in a Friday statement.

A full shutdown of the company could result in as many as 18,000 job losses – though it's possible a buyer could be found for some of its dozens of brands.

The White House petition was posted Friday. It needs 25,000 signatures to generate an official White House response.


Things I learned from the Internet

Posted by Scanty Demon , Nov 16 2012 · 133 views

1. When people say *gasp* or ugh they're usually being sarcastic. (Note: I said usually meaning they can type those words and be serious)
2. LOL has no meaning to me.
3. People are more sarcastic on the Internet.
4. People are great and wonderful online.
5. People are horrible and rude online.
6. Sometimes you wish someone would shut up, then you realize you can leave the website.
7. Arguements make people forget rules
