WATCH OUT! "Stdreporting.com" outing people!
« on: September 03, 2012, 08:19:06 PM »
I was unfortunate to come across this website: http://stdreporting.com/

Its a website that some idiot created that looks for information that people post online that outs themselves as HIV positive.

Apparently, this person thinks that all HIV positive people are in the business of going out infecting random people...

Its sickening, but just thought you should know incase you post anything on here, because Im seeing some of these posts on this website with comments made by people saying ignorant and disgusting things.

Hi Jam,

I took a look and didn't see any lifts from this site (maybe I'm not looking in the right place) and the other good news...the International STD Registry for anonymously outing people appears to not be working at all.

It reads like a trash-talking, amateur, nonsense site for someone who can't figure out something truly constructive to do with a pulse and time.

Right and wrong, madam.  Yes, I was able to get some of those posts to link right back to here.  Specifically, to one of Miss P's posts in reference to deceased porn star, Erik Rhodes...so wrong on that count.

However, you are right on the main point:  this is some site by some immature trash talkers with no substantial merit.  It's just one more little sludgy gutter of the web.

Thanks for the info thunter! I read a number of individuals' posts -- they were gobbledy-gook mostly. If they're vacuuming text from this site, they must be scavenging for hot fodder. Madam Em -- that has a nice sound. Thanks for the upgrade!!

Actually, I quite like the sound of that myself, Em.  I think I may keep it for you, Madam Em.   :)

And yeah...they are literally doing just that (great word choice):  they are vacuuming the site for filler.  Yawn.

They should hire Miss P.  I swear, I think she is in the CIA.  She seems to be able to pull up forum quotes from 5 years ago, know things on your FB page, Manhunt page, and whether ya stand or sit to wipe.  If they had someone like that working for them, they could have all our real names quick.

I tease cause I love, but Miss P would be awesome as a fact checker or investigator.  Seriously, I haven't looked at the site yet.  But, I don't get the need for people to do this.  Hector Projector type thing??  If someone wanted to target this site (there aren't a ton of HIV support sites), I think it would take a while to gather enough info.  On the other hand, I know I've given out plenty of personal info, without realizing it.

You do know that she keeps a very detailed personal file on each of us right?

They will be sorry when they out the wrong person and wind up with a huge law suit they cannot pay. I think its Illinois where it is illegal to out someone. If your caught its a five thousand dollar fine. That was from years ago and I am not sure if its is still on the books or if it was ever actually used.
I don't see what they think they will gain from it but the world is full of crazies.

The site it actually what's called an "autoblog" running a content scraper. A bot searches the web for terms like herpes, hiv, etc and then automatically updates the blog with the scraped content. The purpose is, of course, ad revenue that comes when people click the underlined links.

I've recently digitized all of my cross-referenced 3" x 5" index cards and only use DEVONthink Pro. They even have a mobile iOS version now.

Oh, and Theodora, you've been using that same, lame, fuzzy pictar on your facebook profile now for four years. Shouldn't you change it?

LOL!  See.  What ever are you talking about?  That was taken a month ago.   ::)

I have become fairly good at finding people based on a few bits of information.  A friend met a guy on a flight.  He remembered his last name was Hurt and was a nurse.  He couldn't remember his first name or city.  I had all his info in less than ten minutes.
