Anderson Cooper Confronts Owner Of STD Website
« on: March 12, 2012, 03:38:10 AM »
Monday, March 12:  Anderson Cooper confronts the owner of a website that provides a forum for people to publish whether someone has an STD without proof or consent.  This has been discussed here a few times.  This is his daytime talk show.  Check your local listings or check back for link, if interested.

i've recently experieced similar. i took down my facebook. that action resulted in me being declared dead. an alumni from my high shools maintains a facebook page to remember all our classmates that passed away. she also lists "cause" of death. i don't even know this woman, she was at least ten years ahead of me.

here are the ones i took issue with, names other than mine altered

zach; class of '94, died '11 from AIDS  (and i still aint dead)
mike; class of '91, , died '90, suicide by poison
bob;  class of '86, died '89, suicide by cop,
jim; class of '81, died '84, AIDS

the whole page felt macbre and salacious. at least they took mine down when the error was pointed out. however, teh aids cat is out of the bag

moral lesson here, don't leave facebook or you'll die

I've been known DEAD of teh AIDS for the last 13 yrs. by many of my Nor-Cal coworkers, but fuck them, I'm still alive  ::)

and besides, I never really liked any of em anyway  :D

 Isn't it interesting that some people will always presume you DEAD, especially the ones that never liked you in the 1st place for whatever the reason was  ;D

P.S. Dennis who finds it laughable that old co-workers think I really died of teh AIDS over 13 to 15 yrs ago  ;D

That horrendous!!! If you get the energy, you should write some classmates to put a campaign on her to pressure her to stop this trashy invasion of people's dignity.

Also, what on earth is "suicide by cop"?  he was a policeman who killed himself?

Suicide by cop is a suicide method in which a suicidal individual deliberately acts in a threatening way, with the goal of provoking a lethal response from a law enforcement officer or other armed individual, such as being shot to death, pulling a gun on teh po po will almost certainly end in the armed individuals death.......

I watched the show and Anderson has it right, when he calls the guy "A waste of breath".  The gist of the issue is the guy runs a website where anyone can post claims of people having STDs, whether it is true or not and the damage done to innocent folks.  The guy claims he doesn't control what people post, so he's safe, however, he does offer a program for $1K to help clean up the reputations that are sullied as a result of his website.

I have no words to describe this man, you have to watch it to believe he exists.  Surely antifreeze is the only thing that flows through his veins.

It appears to be nameless, for now

Modified to add the name of the site: STDcarriers.com

as it seems we provided linkage to it once before on another thread  :D

No it's not.  Here's the blurb from Anderson's site:

STD WEBSITE: GUILTY UNTIL PROVEN INNOCENT

Saturday, March 10, 2012 5:00AM

On a new website, webmaster Cyrus aggregates information about whether random people have sexually transmitted diseases using info from anonymous tips, and if those written about want the information removed, they are required to hand over their medical records.

Per the site's regulations, even though STD-related information -- including lies -- can be posted about people's medical conditions with no proof. Challenging an allegation requires a clean medical record to be personally sent to Cyrus himself.

Anderson questions if this fair, arguing that people have very little reason to trust a man who created this site in the first place. As someone who's been mentioned on the site, Shannon agrees.

"People can easily say someone has an STD without proof, but then you have to have proof to get off the site?" Shannon asks Cyrus. "That means you're guilty and have to prove yourself innocent."

Cyrus is one creepy person with absolutely no morals, empathy or compassion.  Talk about the poster child for retroactive abortions.

"What is a scam artist?

To determine if someone is a scam artist you must first clarify the definition of a scam. To do this I have consulted the leading online authority on what words mean Merriam Webster...
"

He doesn't need Leslie Abramson, Gloria Allred, or Dershowitz.  He's got the leading authority Mrs. Merriam Webster.   He's not a scam!

Tell me, isn't this clever of Anderson Cooper to think of this interview. It deepens the discussion we've been having, aghast at all the topics of the Republican presidential primary, and misc. state legislatures.

You all realise this thread needs to be merged with the Jesuit Bukkake Bomb lady in MTD's thread.  Together they will be the new STD-fighting super heroes. The world will be saved!
