I don't understand the problem here.
The platform allows users to self publish material on THEIR platforms.
They ARE a publisher.
Seems real simple, now time for the lawyers to jump in and start grabbing cash for total BS arguments.
If I wrote an article and sent it into the Telegraph or the Times and they published it, THEY would also carry liability, what's the difference ?
I had to show an Angular dev how I would have coded a small piece of a webpage in JS,
“why would you do that you can use a library” was the reply.
I asked him “what does the library do ?“
“It validates the input in the text box With simple markup”
I then asked
“what else’s it does”
his reply I think shocked himself
“I don’t know”
And the penny dropped ....
Don’t you think that by now we really should have this s@@t sorted out.
I received a dodgy looking unexpected email, used the “report suspicious email” button and away it went.
Then all hell broke loose as the security guy just open the attachment and it proceeded to copy itself to all shares and encrypt an files found, 5 minutes it was all over the network.
Links / attachments from outside of your domain should be quarantined or just deleted.
A friend did this with the Glastonbury website
He passed the script out to his friends and they ALL secured the tickets they wanted within minutes of the site opening up
That’s just clever people being clever nothing illegal about it
It was in their world of expertise so it’s not a problem
If someone else can’t get a slot well tough that’s the way the world works
Call the cops, that is pathetic
Working from home saves a fortune in time and costs
I spent £7k on fuel last year this year I expect it to be around £2k that is a pay rise in itself factor in the saving of the 2 -3hr commute and I am on easy street
Think with IT people is you can always move job if your not valued correctly
The charges are wrong, just plain wrong.
App Store & Play Store are an offering to the user to BUY the damn device.
The security scanning etc.. THAT is what the manufacturers should be offering to make THEIR shiny product worth buying.
It is a monopoly (other games are available) 30% disgusting ... over £1k for a phone disgusting
A while ago ..
We had a need to replace ALL the laptops and desktops (full upgrade cycle)
I.T. listed the specs and placed the order £70k
Bean counter objected
I.T. Manager jumped in and altered the specs to fit the "new" budget.
Kit arrived with 5,400 rpm hard drives and processors 2 levels lower than we requested.
Supplier refused to take them back.
They sat in the corner for years as they were slower than the kit we already had.

The UK should NEVER extradite to the US.
The US does not extradite it’s citizens to any other country, crimes committed abroad are NOT punishable in the US.
Why do you think she fled there, it was always the safest place for a US citizen who killed someone in another country.
Stop ALL extraditions to the US
They are using internal law and applying it to the whole world, the UK is mad to let them do this.
Google / Firefox / Edge & Safari
You guys really need to sort this **** out
IF you need jQuery or any other framework YOU should be hosting it and it should be encrypted
It seems everyone knows the patches exist but they don’t apply them
Well if the big 4 browsers put a block on sites using older versions of libraries that are not patched then the CLIENT would take it more seriously.
Either take it seriously or remove the obligation on financial institutions to refund lost money and make the person responsible
So many years of the same issues
POTUS has ultimate control of something like this.
That “wall” may no longer be necessary just write an azure function to identify Mexicans and set the wee beasties free.
What is needed now is for someone to develop another swarm with larger drones equipped with fly swatters as a counter measure.
I believed that I had no choice but to go buy a new player, now I will go find the label to get a replacement thanks.
Now to the meat
Can someone please put together an idiots step by step guide on how to block these phone homes and tracking via the router.
I am asking this for millions of simple people who do not know how to block this stuff.
I tried blocking yahoo adverts but it appears they have a very large round robin list and it just trips to the next after 2 or 3 seconds.
Routers should come with all traffic blocked and you should have to open a port to allow stuff out, this take everything from these companies is disgusting.
These people are military they can kill you in hundreds of different ways
The others are salesmen and they can rob you in hundreds of different ways
Who thinks letting them negotiate a contract is a good idea ?
Capita has the brains and still keeps coming out on top even when they mess up
Dominic Cummings needs to get a grip of these things and sort them out
Anyone who got scammed was a fool in this instance.
“Give me some money and I will double it because I am a nice guy“
Right a 6 year old would question that proposal.
Twitter is such a toxic place so glad I avoid FB & T, LinkedIn is fast coming into 3rd place for creating a toxic environment.
To all the “social media” fools lookup there is an amazing world just 3” above your screen.
Hey did some UK IT people lose Their jobs to our source companies?
You must be mistaken HMRC tell us that the UK IT sector is booming
The UK government need to start to take note, HMRC have lied to you and your about to watch the UK service sector wiped out, then the demand for more visas to fill the gap will be required
Start looking after your UK work force
IR35 killed off Freelance work for the banks, so of course Indian outsource companies have posted high profits.
HMRC pushed all the well paid roles offshore, 10,000+ freelancers were let go in March 2020.
Still lower visa costs, hmm maybe just maybe someone at InfoSys knows someone in a position of influence.
Nah I am probably just being a little paranoid.
You forget that there is a 20% VAT charge that goes to HMRC
So that no longer gets generated so HMRC lose 20% straight off.
Contractors generally come in when it has gone pear shaped and help to clean up, they then leave.
The rate reflects this, you cannot compare permanent staff and contract staff.
So a better example maybe
Contract fees of £75k + £15k (20% vat) = £90k
£15k direct to HMRC and then the other taxes
Roughly HMRC get £35k from the freelancer
Same role permanent will be for around £40k
Roughy HMRC get £16k from this employment
A LOSS of £19k
Now the jobs go offshore as its cheaper now and less risky of battling HMRC
HMRC get £0.00 nil nothing nada
So please tell me again how this makes sense.
Contracting WAS open to anyone who wished to do it, the people complaining never tried it or failed at it they just believed the lies peddled out.
Try reapplying for YOUR job every 3 months lets see how you get on.
What client in their right mind is going to hire a freelancer !!!
HMRC do not agree with assessments made by its own tool CEST.
Hire a contractor face a court date with HMRC.
Freelancing in the UK is now dead, but in a positive note there will be lots of jobs created offshore
HMRC tax take £0.00
HMRC DECLARE VICTORY
