    Its always been the bane of computers that you can’t move the mouse and click things with the actual mouse using code, as much as a “security risk” that would be, the fact that I have to manually repeatedly click the same things all the time and have no way to automate it is very irritating aspect of computing considering thats precisely what computers are best at. It seems like you would have to use a camera and a hacked mouse building a simulated human to actually click things the way it should have been built in the first place. Either that or just record the input stack and play components of it back when you touch the initial position again, or dual USB your mouse with the second one sending feedback back to the mouse about the current position (and ideally information about whats under it so that it know what signal to send back). If your reaching for a button it should detect that your reaching for it and click it before you get there. Its like every program is a game, and they don’t allow cheating when your using your every day applications either. What a waste of time for everyone! An infinite amount of wasted time adds up between each person wasting it. I constantly want to build one button that clicks 3 things. WHY are we locked into doing it the way it was designed? What if its poorly designed for most intricate tasks efficiently. I don’t know why people must think its a game and that they actually enjoy clicking or typing the same things over and over again. I think it would be relatively easy to get around with enough time & money. If I could never click or type a day in my entire life again, I wouldn’t, I would click and type almost an infinite amount of stuff to make it so I’d never have to do it again. I really don’t understand people. They have much money invested in keeping people locked into doing things a way thats inhuman and unnatural in the first place, with the false assumption that repetition is fun. Stare at this dial all day and click this button when it gets to 20. Do you seriously need to waste a human life doing that, instead of having that human clean up pollution for example. There are far more profitable activities that have nothing to do with making money by polluting the entire world so you have the only clean fish tank, and people actually support that type of behavior as well, blindly, but they do, standardize pollution as “acceptable level” and monopolize their caged industries by eliminating natural alternatives from not just marketplace, but from existing at all, leaving no choice except to fall into “the way things are” as its presented, but reality of the limiting situation lies in wait for all parties involved, whether they profit in the short term or not, problems don’t go away on their own, and hatred of the activities and practices of the past is inevitable, even if its still occurring today and considered “modern”. Most are invested in preserving the way things are no matter how twisted and wrong it might be. Selling tomorrow for a today that’s less and less worth living in, until it becomes impossible that pure beings exist, their very essence pollution, and as long as they’re still rich they’ll tell you that its the way it should be. Even if someone built a bot today, would they want to share it with everyone? I think almost the only way to do any sort of computing is inside a buffer that can be manipulated in any way imaginable. Its the difference between computing and television, but extrapolated to infinity and about ultimate freedom, but not through slavery. Then one might call it a game, whereas anything that impinges on the freedom of other entities isn’t. Just because you can enslave millions doesn’t mean you’ll profit from it. The worst type of slave is the one that believes in what they are a part of as being freedom, that creating more enslavement is never ultimately good for anyone. Enslave nature an it will stop producing its fruits for you. Enslave ants in pavement and they will stop working for you. Enslave yourself to a way of life and you will stop enjoying living. Keep thinking your right in spite and one day you’ll be wrong, have eaten all your friends and earth, and left in space alone.

    Every single person on the planet can go to hell and rot eternally. Here’s why. Today my car go towed. The lot was @(*#&$% empty! That is all. My 200 dollar savings account is now 20 dollars. Your all really awesome people, I’m proud to be here among you. If you want me to be on the planet and not hate you for doing stupid shit, then you have to pay ,me to tolerate losers like that, especially when they work for a church, and its a damn Saturday, and they’re suppose to be compassionate understanding people. I demand satisfaction.

    Tackling auto responder spam. As tedious as it may be, before emailing an entire list or replying to a particular message, especially automatically, one must be careful for various reasons. The email addresses entered may be valid, but very likely go to some third party, and including the entire quoted text, especially on an unchecked inbox, means that anyone can use your server to anonymously hack the auto responder. Worse yet, when the auto responder attacks an entire list of people. Spam is evil because it slows people down from doing good positive productive things, and instead focuses them on the opposite task of destruction or consumerism often which are the same thing with the same horrible ends for everyone involved. Its important to butcher quoted text automatically in many circumstances to prevent the spread of unwanted links, especially once a thread is already marked as spam. If dealing with an entire list of people, the best practice would be some way of finding out whose looking at their inbox right now, and try a few tests quick (that people viewed the message but didn’t click the spam link at the bottom) before spamming everyone with the message. Ideally there is no major delay in the propagation of the thread, which may contain pertinent or useful time sensitive information, however when access to posting to the group is left wide open, and the user is brand new, emailing everyone on the list with the potential new spam message is not very fair to that lists users. Time and time again abusing systems that make it easy only leads to tougher systems and more restrictive societies. It’s really up to the people of the community to monitor what gets out of hand, do whatever they can to prevent the person from even considering doing it again, however the best method of all would be via some alternative that is actually productive instead of the crippling parasites that plague every species on the planet. Even leaches have their place, even if its only in 18th century medicine, because they force us to innovate solutions that preclude to exclude… but hopefully not simply due to the exotic, but due to time and other pseudo real restraints on communal usefulness. In a perfect world, if you feed a troll, you get more gold when you kill it. Playing it safe means not giving them any ideas but this also relegates them to their old tried and true tactics. I think its a better idea to convince them to try new tactics that won’t work, especially if they don’t work. Ideally threads can be marked as spam before they propagate and relegated to their own distinctive hall of dysfunctional, pointless, and ignored uncheckable shame, where it can be examined without having a real, or at least not the intended effect. Bad links on good sites, or in the wrong peoples inbox’s, are at least transiently bad for the internet. Nothings worse than fake results! People deserve to find the truth about what they’re looking for, not what some lowlife will pay to publicize as the answer for deception and profit only to hide something real on page twelve. Its too bad there’s no secrets when there are no friends willing to pay to keep secrets. The real idea however is the capacity to report auto responder abuse without playing favorites or wasting time about it
