My personal security policy is that no one can know my password, not even ME!

[–] GoogleHatesVoat 2 points 38 points (+40|-2) ago 

Sounds like military level security. You change it every 30 days and you don't write it down anywhere. Even civilians have to follow the protocol when on DoD systems. Hillary would have never survived as a normal citizen soldier, she would have ended up doing push ups until she puked to use secure systems properly. That or sent off to federal prison. Following the rules is just not her style, she's a thug after all.

You change it every 30 days

This is a complete and utter bollocks security policy. What's more secure, a series of Password1!, Password2! derivatives or a tough fucker like Chek2frecAl+ that you choose ONCE? At least NIST agrees with me now

BTW, the password above was generated by apg on Linux, probably there are Windows apps for pronouncable-password generation too. Can't be arsed to look for them at the moment though.

You change it every 30 days and you don't write it down anywhere.

Thankfully, NIST no longer recommends mandatory password changes as best practice, because time isn't the enemy of passwords and people fall back to using crap stub passwords that they iterate on.

There were some depositions of IT from her tenure as secretary of state that described how they tried to get her a computer in her office, but they couldn't make it meet her needs because she couldn't remember passwords or use her email through the secure system. They ended up giving her an entire area on the floor so that she could use her coveted blackberries to access her emails in the non-secure area. Just completely bananas.

[–] AssaultMonkey 0 points 3 points (+3|-0) ago 

However, to reset your password for a US military system (at least in my day) all you needed was your birthdate, maybe your SSN, and your name. I never bothered to remember any passwords because resetting them was just as easy.

[–] MadWorld 0 points 8 points (+8|-0) ago 

I don't know my passwords either!!

[–] DivineFits 0 points 12 points (+12|-0) ago 

There could be a great goat drop off this weekend. Hope those who don't know their passwords make an new username and transfer their subs over!

If it's saved in the browser, this utility (WebBrowserPassView) by NirSoft will show it. http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/web_browser_password.html

[–] bonedrone 0 points 0 points (+0|-0) ago 

Or one could simply go to browser settings and look it from there...

[–] 1ArmedTRex 0 points 0 points (+0|-0) ago 

I did that with my first bank account pin when i was young and slighty dumber. Oh what fun.

[–] MakeUsaGreatAgain 0 points 45 points (+45|-0) ago 

I have no idea what my password is and I didn't link an email for recovery. Good bye everyone.

[–] PuttItOut [S] 1 points 41 points (+42|-1) ago 

It's been fun while it lasted.

[–] Skyrock 0 points 19 points (+19|-0) ago 

You don't need your password to link an e-mail while you are logged in. Just link a temporary trash mail account, request password recovery by mail and use that one while discarding the trash mail account.

[–] MakeUsaGreatAgain 0 points 7 points (+7|-0) ago 

Really? Ok thanks.

[–] 22jam22 0 points 0 points (+0|-0) ago 

I tried that with two valid emails voat says na that email u been using since 1994 is not valid!

[–] l_voated_today 0 points 6 points (+6|-0) ago 

Its worth making a new account every few months anyways.

[–] MakeUsaGreatAgain 0 points 3 points (+3|-0) ago 

Yeah I been thinking of just making a new one anyways.

[–] 0110001111 0 points 1 points (+1|-0) ago 

ts worth making a new account every few months anyways.

Avoids someone doxing you from divulging too much info. Once your account gets too big, it becomes easier to piece together info. Not saying its a voat problem, more of a information stream issue

[–] v 0 points 0 points (+0|-0) ago 

But I like my name :/

[–] VillaLopez 0 points 0 points (+0|-0) ago 

That's my rule of thumb on Reddit. I get tired of the left banning me from commenting common sense.

[–] 10618604 0 points 6 points (+6|-0) ago 

Ditto. I'm due for a better username anyway tbh.

[–] MrPim 0 points 9 points (+9|-0) ago 

I always liked the NiggaWatt name.

[–] 93503847569 0 points 0 points (+0|-0) ago 

my brother

[–] HeywoodJablomi 1 points 0 points (+1|-1) ago 

But then you have a great user name but still consider it a burner account. :O

[–] Owlchemy 1 points 27 points (+28|-1) ago  (edited ago)

Thanks to Putt and all these great goats that helped in this effort. Not being a coder or really into what this entailed, I tried my best to stay out of the way and just keep up the good fight against spammers, while you guys did the work, so don't hate me ... I contributed in a different way ... one I'm more comfortable with. I'm certain all your hard efforts will be worth it! Thanks a bunch!

[–] PuttItOut [S] 1 points 29 points (+30|-1) ago 

New code has functionality in it that will allow us to respond to spam in a timely fashion. These things are a direct result from the work being done at v/reportspammers and you are instrumental in this effort.

We all play a part.

[–] Owlchemy 0 points 12 points (+12|-0) ago 

Thanks, I enjoy helping since I scan v/all a lot anyway ... but @Cynabuns is the real heroine ... the rest of us key off of her! What an asset.

[–] 10622096 0 points 2 points (+2|-0) ago 

Glad to hear that something very good was able to come from that subverse and that Voat has been able to survive through countless waves of spam to this point in time. Here's to several more years of Voat and true freedom of speech!

[–] Techman 0 points 1 points (+1|-0) ago 

I've reported stuff to /v/reportspammers before and as far as I am concerned, they were all seemingly ignored...

[–] Mick 0 points 6 points (+6|-0) ago 

You dun did good, Owl :)

[–] TheDude2 0 points 5 points (+5|-0) ago 

As a total leech, I appreciate your work.

[–] Owlchemy 0 points 5 points (+5|-0) ago 

Ahh. come on, everyone here helps in some way! That's what makes Voat great!

[–] Mouse-Ball-Z 0 points 23 points (+23|-0) ago 


There, its saved so only I can see it.

[–] 13osiris13 0 points 10 points (+10|-0) ago  (edited ago)

Hah, nice try. If you type in your actual password it only comes up as asterisks.



[–] WiLiV 0 points 13 points (+13|-0) ago 

really? so if I type in my ******** it will only come up in asterisks? Seems like a really great ******** security mechanism! Really helps people like me who struggle to pick a ********

[–] adhdferret 0 points 18 points (+18|-0) ago 

I don't see sanegoatiswear on there.

Do you mean to say they were not a help boss?

In before the copypasta....... puttitout is a shill sent from the Clinton camp to enslave us all

[–] Failure 0 points 4 points (+4|-0) ago 

Dont forget that Fuzzy and I are Jewish slavemasters that have Putt chained in out basement

[–] ExpertShitposter 0 points 1 points (+1|-0) ago 

Implying we all don't know that you and @fuzzywords are the same person!

[–] wuzizname 0 points 14 points (+14|-0) ago  (edited ago)

You were on the brink, @PuttItOut, you were worn out, crispy around the edges, your golf swing sucked and you were ready to say, "Fuck it all!" but, in your darkest hours you put out the call (put.. it.. out?) and we slobs all rallied behind you to help make our little world a better place. I'm so proud!

[–] PuttItOut [S] 1 points 12 points (+13|-1) ago 

Hurts to read that, brings up some hard times.

[–] redpilldessert 0 points 5 points (+5|-0) ago 

Instead of $6,600 per month as before, how much is Voat eating up now thanks to the new system, or don't you know yet?

[–] Tsilent_Tsunami 0 points 2 points (+2|-0) ago 

Do you have someone (you know, one of your many spare employees...) making a list of wealthy potential donors and contacting them with a compelling offer to let them support voat? There are a number of billionaires, and even more millionaires who are on the right. Show them why it's in their interest, and some will say yes. Can it become a tax write-off? Are there other ways it could be positioned to be more attractive to them?

On the positive side: "I’ve given up golf"

Whatever it takes, man. Dunno if you're over the addiction yet, but you're going to be a better man for it. :^)

[–] wuzizname 0 points 2 points (+2|-0) ago 

We got you. Never underestimate our commitment to you.

[–] Womb_Raider 7 points 14 points (+21|-7) ago 

Notice how many SBBH names are in this list

(PS, ChillyHellion is the bees knees)

[–] 13osiris13 4 points 19 points (+23|-4) ago 

Probably because despite shitposting they genuinely care about Voat

[–] Slayfire122 0 points 11 points (+11|-0) ago 

Or they put a bunch of shit in the code so they can pull some fuckery later. They probably care about Voat though.

[–] Womb_Raider 3 points -2 points (+1|-3) ago 

I mean, you're one of them, so why talk about them in the third person?

[–] Chiefpacman 3 points 1 points (+4|-3) ago 

Its true.

Whats the significance? Other than them having too much time on thier hands.

[–] brandon816 1 points 3 points (+4|-1) ago 

Open the accounts listed above. Notice how many of them have at least one of the port tester awards.

[–] Womb_Raider 8 points -2 points (+6|-8) ago 

I guess I just find it of particular intrigue that they're worthy of thanks, considering some of these names I've seen blatantly lying to voaters, and knowingly so...

[–] Adminstrater 0 points 13 points (+13|-0) ago 

make sure that you have your passwords memorized

Telling people to memorize their passwords is extreme dementiaphobic.

[–] Anther 0 points 6 points (+6|-0) ago 

Possibly triggered - can’t remember.
