Spy camera merely harmless ruse Last year was a W P opt in choice

Editorial Note about article

This is a video that belongs to the group presenting its cause on my site. I contacted Word Press and they asked me to include a screen shot of the site. One of the site’s managers told me that last year this was classified as an “opt in feature” but that this year they had no such option.  Watch the video and judge for yourself.

========================

 

A special interest group is attempting to intimidate and cajole bloggers into a contribution scam that allegedly will expose an imagined governmental invasion of your privacy when you go online.

They are essentially panhandling for cash and your coerced political endorsement to legitimize their cause.  Talented hacks feeding their flagging egos on your net fears and doubts.

Once a year or so this same faceless and shameless marketing tactic is used to agitate and irritate people who are only trying to communicate with others view their blog vehicle.They are shameless interlopers asking you to dig deep and financially support their cause.

It is a cowardly way to infiltrate the Word Press site and I hope that enough of a kerfuffle will be made by WP users to help educate the WP gurus who should be monitoring their site for such underhanded incursions into their users privacy.

I have included a copy of this site to inform you of this plot. It is harmless like a Mosquito in the woods at night. Report it to the master minds who operate his site. The message should NOT have crept into their protected site.

Enjoy the day and hopefully by the end of the month this insidious pest will die a peaceful death.

If you are feeling spied upon place a piece of tape over the camera port on your computer. I do. 

If you have any other thoughts or concerns email me. Together we can get rid of this crass manner of seeking financial support.

And because it's true, it is what is there to be interacted with. Anything untrue isn't there to be lived. People can stand what is true, for they are already enduring it.” ― Eugene T.

  1. Thanks for the heads-up, Gerry, but I would love to know who this special interest group is!

    • If you watch the video it explains who these people are. Sounds like a special interest group employing scare tactics to gather support from net users. As I stated at the start of the article I was contacted by a W P rep who told me that last year this type of “feature” was listed under an “opt in” choice. Not so this year. Thanks for writing. Appreciated.

      Hi Gerry,

      This sounds similar to something we did last February:
      https://en.blog.wordpress.com/2014/02/11/the-day-we-fight-back/

      But we didn’t turn that on for people, it was opt-in only; and I’m not aware of it even being an option right now. I don’t see anything like you describe on your site.

  3. I’m glad to know what it was. Sorry they targeted you for their ‘efforts’, but I’m pleased to report that when I opened this particular blog post of yours there was no camera. Apparently either your efforts to expose their particular line of b.s. or the WP editors have banished them. I will say that putting that type of thing on any site is not likely to tempt me to contribute to the cause hosting it. It’s intimidation and it’s invasive. Thanks for exposing them.
