that warrant canary is WOEFULLY underwritten.

here's a solid version i gave to @puttitout who pmed it back to me, but never said anything. i supposed he would update the canary. apparently not.


"we have had 0 (zero) gag orders, National Security Requests, FISA orders, injunctions, super-injunctions, publication bans, nor any other free-speech prohibiting action against us nor against voat nor against any signed-in user of voat nor against any guest user nor against any groups of any type of users to the date of the last posting of this notification - - as well, up to that point, voat has been neither a trap of any kind nor has it up to that point been a honeypot. if this notification is not posted or no announcements are made (one) month to the second after the previous announcement, consider voat compromised and act accordingly."

keeping it casual keeps it legally defendable. In fact, I'd prefer they do it spontaneously.

A deadman clause is quite good though.

i'm sorry, keeping it like this keeps it full of holes. you are categorically wrong about that. not only could there be an injunction on voat right now and we wouldn't know it from this half-canary, but not posting regularly throws the whole thing out the window. the idea is to create a situation where those gagging can't force you to tell a lie. having a dead man's switch does that very well, because they'd have to force you to press the button to keep the canary up. just posting it like this on annoucements all randomly reduces the power of the deadman.

The American government aka FBI, NSA, DEA, ISIS et al, can and have taken over web sites, especially dark web, and continued operation. They continue with the site's warrant canaries.

I tossed in ISIS to see if people read this stuff.

because they haven't had time to solidify with some mither fickin precedence.

nor are most any of them written well enough, nor is there a standardized version.... things that would help legitimize them and possiblly help solidify them in law..

please tell me how they are useless, maybe i'm missing something. how else do we get to know about gags, injunctions, national security letters, fisa requests, super injunctions, publication bans?
