Question: I agree with the idea that viewing pictures from the iCloud hack constitue a violation. Sexual assult even. So what about those pictures Anthony Wiener sent. It was private and not intended for public distribution. Do they fall under the same protections or is it ok cause he's a politician?
Wiener's situation wasn't a hack. He did that himself in public. - Eric - It's My Thing
So if Jennifer Lawrence's ex-boyfriend released nude photos that she sent him during their relationship, that would be ok? - Johnny from iPhone
Pretty sure Weiner posted the photo publicly himself by accident. So the analogy would be more like, "If Jennifer Lawrence posted a nude photo of herself to Twitter and then deleted it saying it was an accident, would it be OK to continue to distribute it?" - Steele Lawman
The second scandal was a release of photos he distributed in private messages. Maybe Anthony Wiener isn't the best example but I have seen many websites now championing Lawrence's cause that had a field day on Wiener's issues. I'm interested if this new threshold is universal or the second a non-popular Hollywood darling (politician) has the same thing happen (hack or leak), will that threshold still stand. - Johnny from iPhone
There are fine and subtle differences between revenge porn and hacking. I also think a lot of years have passed since Weiner, and we may be living in a different time now, with a different understanding of what we expect from what's on our cameras. - RudĩϐЯaЯïan
Also, this may be too fine-- but Weiner's photos were ones he distributed, and that was the issue. That he distributed them, as a politician. These women, so very many women, had their cloud accounts hacked and their photos distributed without any consent. And there is also something in the consumption -- Weiner's scandal was that he shared his weiner. This scandal is that these women's... more... - RudĩϐЯaЯïan
This is a really interesting case comparison, thanks for presenting it, J-Wo. - Micah
So if I had the Anthony Wiener-type pictures, I'm ok to publish them because he should have known better? - Johnny from iPhone
"On May 27, 2011, Weiner sent a link to a sexually suggestive photograph of himself via his public Twitter account[40][41] to an adult woman who was following him on Twitter.[42] After several days of denying he had posted the image,[43][44][45][46] Weiner held a press conference at which he admitted he had "exchanged messages and photos of an explicit nature with about six women over... more... - Micah
If he sent them to you, they belong to you. That's one sad lesson of the Weiner case. These women's cloud accounts/backup files were hacked. Kind of a big difference. - RudĩϐЯaЯïan
You may want to look up the second scandal during his Mayoral run. - Johnny from iPhone
I'm trying to confirm that viewing and publishing people's private naked photographs are wrong because it's wrong or because it's currently happening to someone we like. - Johnny from iPhone
From Twitter TOS: "5. Your Rights You retain your rights to any Content you submit, post or display on or through the Services. By submitting, posting or displaying Content on or through the Services, you grant us a worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free license (with the right to sublicense) to use, copy, reproduce, process, adapt, modify, publish, transmit, display and distribute such Content in any and all media or distribution methods (now known or later developed)." https://twitter.com/tos - Micah
I don't buy that binary, Johnny. I think it's somewhat in the public interest for the Weiner photos to be published because they are evidence of a public official's inappropriate and unwise behavior. While the only excuse for publishing the Lawrence nudes is because people want to see forbidden naked pictures of a hot celebrity. - Steele Lawman
Also, I'm not defending Wiener in the slightest. The story needed reporting. I'm specifically speaking about the publishing and viewing of intended private nude photos. The manner of their procurement isn't as relevant. - Johnny from iPhone
Steve, I have seen many news sites report on the Lawrence scandal that haven't used a single leaked image. It is possible to report on such things without displaying the "goods". - Johnny
Johnny, I have to admit I'm in a catch 22 on this one. I'll have to think about it some more. - Eric - It's My Thing
I feel like you keep moving the goalposts on me, Johnny. I didn't say that it was necessary to show the photos. If I were editor, I probably would elect not to. But I think that publishing photos that prove that a public official or candidate is in fact guilty of exposing himself to women is defensible, regardless of whether he meant them to be public. Publishing photos of a celebrity that she never intended to be public is not, because there is no "public interest" at stake besides mere prurience. - Steele Lawman
I'm not trying to move the goal posts. Maybe the confusions is over the word publishing. I'm NOT saying that the scandal can't be exposed, I'm specifically talking about hosting the photos for public consumption and individuals viewing those photos. From Lawrence's Vanity Fair article "Anybody who looked at those pictures, you’re perpetuating a sexual offense." Is looking at someone's... more... - Johnny
Another case: Hayley Williams, lead singer of Paramore, mistakenly posted a topless photo of herself on Twitter that was intended for her boyfriend. A mistake on her part. Am I ok to view that photo because she made a mistake? Is that any less of a violation than looking at Lawrence's photos? The edges of thresholds are always murky, but worth exploring. - Johnny
Maybe you aren't moving the goalposts. Maybe I just want you to agree with me 100% :) - Steele Lawman
:) - Johnny
For the record, Lawrence is about the 20th celeb to state on the record that they feel folks looking at their leaked photos are sexually assaulting them. There were scores of celebs who had their files hacked in the past month. And I do feel, quite strongly, that the manner of attainder matters a lot. These women were purposefully exposed for the titillation of the masses, violated, on... more... - RudĩϐЯaЯïan
*hugs a goal post* - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
Johnny, I'd say looking at naked photos of anyone that they did not themselves release for your viewing pleasure is not OK. If peeping through a curtain at a naked person is illegal, why on earth would it be ok to view stolen nudie photos? - RudĩϐЯaЯïan
I'm not saying it's ok. I'm not on the outside shouting in, I'm on the inside making sure that everyone is on the same page. Yes, viewing photos of anyone that they did not themselves release for your viewing pleasure is not OK. I'm wondering how quickly that threshold will be thrown under the bus the next time someone we don't like faces similar consequences. - Johnny
I guess I'm still not sure that the two cases are "similar" in most any way? - RudĩϐЯaЯïan
Also, I think when I finally went to see what the heck the Weiner photos actually were, they were junk-in-undies. (No more exposing than that weird John Hamm photo collection that went around, and he was fully clothed). I haven't looked at the hacked photos, but from what I gather these are *far* more personal. - RudĩϐЯaЯïan
There are explicit photos out there. Simply Put: Your standard is "looking at naked photos of anyone that they did not themselves release for your viewing pleasure is not OK." Anthony Weiner did not release his pictures for your viewing pleasure, so why is looking at his photos ok or acceptable and looking at Lawrences not? - Johnny
I'm not saying looking at Weiner's photos is OK, from that baseline. I am saying, though, that the releasing of the photos served different purposes from the beginning. One was perhaps redeemable, the other not. There was a story that Weiner's photo's illustrated. The hacked leaked celebrity nude photos are the story, They illustrated nothing but fairly evil perversion. (and the... more... - RudĩϐЯaЯïan
That's fine. So the question remains: in the future, if you are presented with an Anthony Weiner-like scandal that contains explicit photos, do you host/view those photos or do you just report on the photos and leave the actual images to the murky depths of 4Chan? - Johnny
Or more specifically, if you saw a website that hosted those photos, would the current outrage felt towards those sites currently distributing the naked celebs be similarly applied? - Johnny
I certainly hope the law takes any murkiness out of the picture. I think hosting and viewing these photos needs to be recognized as illegal bahavior. Theft and burglary occurred, and then the viewer is *knowingly* consuming the stolen goods. It's theft, with the added sexual component, making it assault and violation. I guess what I'm missing is the other side -- what's the argument for it being OK to view hacked, stolen, deeply private naked photos of strangers? - RudĩϐЯaЯïan
I'm not making that argument. I'm trying to work out if the threshold of outrage gets applied to every naked photo released without consent or to only those we deem worthy of protection. - Johnny
Sheri Tepper wrote a novel called The Others, which bothered me a lot when I read it. The Others, an alien race, came to the earth and wiped the bad people off the planet. This always bothered me -- unfair, no due process, lack of grey/redeemability, etc.. There is increasing frequency in the times I raise my hands to the universe and beg for the others to come and wipe certain parties from the earth, as no realistic solution seems possible. 4chan trolls are one of those parties. - RudĩϐЯaЯïan
Johnny, I think you have (at least) two different things you keep conflating. 1. Private photos, released without owners consent: should we look at them? 2. Photos released because they illustrate/tell/expose a story vs. photos stolen and released because tits are fun and chicks deserve that shit. These are two very different issues, deserving wildly different levels of outrage. - RudĩϐЯaЯïan
I'm not even talking about the actual scandals involved, that's something you are pushing. I am speaking about, specifically, the hosting and viewing of private photos. Regardless of the stories behind them, most of the cheerleading I have been seeing over the past couple of days says that viewing naked photos without consent of the creator is wrong. Most people, myself included, agree.... more... - Johnny
Well, I think Stephan Collins is going to have quite a little scandal without us ever seeing the inappropriate photos, since those would constitute child pornography. So, yes. The scandals apparently can occur without the photos being seen (and these are, thankfully, not even naked photos) - RudĩϐЯaЯïan
Yes, but if there was photos (not of the Collins case but a politician etc), would the same level of current outrage be directed at those publishing and distributing those pictures or do they get a pass because there is some "public interest" - Johnny
so the scandal does matter? - RudĩϐЯaЯïan
Does it? That's what I'm pushing at. If someone makes a declaration that "all private naked photos are private" but is willing to void that declaration when a big enough scandal occurs, then the original declaration has a big "but" at the end. When does that "but" come into play? Does our personal view of that person influence when that "but" occurs? I don;t come with answers, I come with questions. - Johnny
There's no way to answer without the scandal in question then! Scandal A: some trolls did evil specifically to do evil and violated a lot of people's privacy to do their evil. There should be hella outrage, and anyone who participates by viewing the photos continues to perpetrate the violence. Scandal B: Someone took photos of inappropriate and illegal behavior; scandal can break with... more... - RudĩϐЯaЯïan
I guess we'll see. I think Weiner was a special case -- because early, first, and the photos weren't nude (or at least the one I saw wasn't). The comparison will be if someone hacks Schwarzenegger's iCloud -- or Sandoval or Perry -- and posts nude photos. But -- that won't actually compare, because the ladies are way less likely to be driven (as a whole class) to check out the nudies than the guys are. - RudĩϐЯaЯïan
Given that, any declaration that "Private naked photos are private" must now come with a "but". - Johnny
I don't see a but. I see history, and perhaps our understandings of things have changed? (I think the viewing of private naked photos released to the public should fall under peeping tom laws. And possibly laws regulating the knowing consumption or purchasing of stolen goods. period.) - RudĩϐЯaЯïan
"Private naked photos are private... but if you're a politician sexting your mistress (not illegal), not really." - Johnny

How to get the FF bookmarklet working in Chrome again (thanks to user "sizofroid")
chromess.jpg
EDIT: Forget these steps, just go to http://friendfeed.com/ffhacks... - Stephen Mack
1. In Chrome, open the page https://gist.githubusercontent.com/anonymo... 2. Copy the entire text from that page by hitting Ctrl+A and then Ctrl+C - Stephen Mack
3. Show your Chrome bookmarks by hitting Ctrl+Shift+B (if they're hidden) - Stephen Mack
4. Right-click on an empty area of Chrome's bookmark bar, then select "Add page..." from the shortcut menu. - Stephen Mack
5. Under "Name", put in whatever you want the button to appear as (such as "FF+" or "Share on FF"). - Stephen Mack
6. Under "URL", press Ctrl+V to paste in the text you just copied. - Stephen Mack
7. Click Save - Stephen Mack
8. Bookmark stuff. Happy FriendFeeding! - Stephen Mack
Credit to user "sizofroid" (http://friendfeed.com/sizofro...) due to his comment on a post from Amit Patel here: http://friendfeed.com/amitp... - Stephen Mack
I don't know if sizofroid fixed this code or not (since both the github repository here and the code it calls on Google Drive are anonymously contributed), but whoever wrote this and fixed it, THANK YOU! - Stephen Mack
Per sizofroid in that comment, this replacement bookmarklet works on Safari as well (but I haven't tested that). My instructions are from the perspective of a Windows Chrome user; if I need to modify any of these instructions for MacOS, please let me know. - Stephen Mack
I don't see anything dangerous in the code (https://googledrive.com/host...) but bear in mind that in theory whoever created this could change the code to be malicious in the future, and in theory possibly add a keyboard logger or blah blah blah so caveat emptor. - Stephen Mack
The code was written by Bret or Paul, no diff from, http://friendfeed.com/share.... It's literally just a rehost. My guess is the only thing that needed changed was http://friendfeed to https://friendfeed in the bookmarklet, as has been required for Firefox for 2 years. - NOT THE CRICKET
Just checked and there is a diff, at line 300 iframe.location has been changed to iframe.src (in the working version). - NOT THE CRICKET
Ah, I see -- thanks for checking, Jimminy. - Stephen Mack
Thanks VERY much all -- it works! Reposted to Quora friendfeeders: https://friendfeeders.quora.com/How-to-... TLDR for Firefox: go to your Bookmarks library, and manually edit the entry for the Friendfeed bookmarklet --change the part of the one-line javascript code from "http://friendfeed" to "https://friendfeed". - Adriano
Adriano, interestingly, just changing the http to https alone doesn't solve it for Chrome, it looks like the other change listed by Jimminy is needed to solve it on Firefox. - Stephen Mack
I backed up both the bookmark code and the bookmarklet code here: http://friendfeed.com/friendf... - Stephen Mack
Thank you, Stephen. \\ Also, the code for rendering embedded YouTube videos is not part of the bookmarklet. It's on the Friendfeed server side, so hopefully a kind FF engineer will fix the problem to work with the current YouTube API. - Adriano
Hmm, for YouTube, I just manually change the URL to http instead of https, and it usually works. - Stephen Mack
THANK YOU - lris
Mike Tyson does not work :( https://friendfeed.com/rsvp... so wondering what works consistently for YouTube. - Adriano
Youtube, has to be posted manually or while not logged in to google. Friendfeed's linkify on the backend only handles http:// links. Google forces https:// on all pages while logged in. - NOT THE CRICKET
Or you can just delete the pesky "s" before posting. - lris
Iris, when posting from the bookmarklet, it doesn't let you modify the URL. And Google will automatically redirect to the secure protocol, so you can't open the bookmarklet on a non-secure page. - NOT THE CRICKET
Ah, my bookmarklet has been kaput for so long I'd forgotten that. :) - lris
So being logged into Google has a hidden side effect, wow, thx. - Adriano
Asking from ignorance: does this work on Macs? - bentley
Adriano, well not all pages, just Google owned sites, like Youtube and stuff. It's pretty common to force logged-in users into using a secure protocol while logged-in as best practices. - NOT THE CRICKET
true, and for Quora pages one must manually append "?share=1" to URL for the benefit of non-Quora viewers. - Adriano
Betsy, it's not a machine problem, merely some bookmark code in the browser one uses. - Adriano
From what I can tell, the iframe.src is a recent Webkit change (effecting Chrome & Safari), and the protocol issue has been prevalent for all mainstream browsers for a few months, due to blocking Mixed Active Content (trying to access HTTP content on an HTTPS page [images get a pass, due to common caching systems]). - NOT THE CRICKET
This is great, thanks Stephen. I've posted an alternate hosting solution for those who want to use dropbox (or extrapolate the idea to other platform to self-host and control one's version of the code) http://friendfeed.com/ffhacks... - Micah

ffbookmarklet - How to host your own code on Dropbox
The newly working Friendfeed ffbookmarklet solution came from Stephen ( http://friendfeed.com/friendf... ) via an anonymous code fixer. The following extends the solution so you can host and control your own version of the code on Dropbox. - Micah
1. Click ffbookmark.js attached to this post to download. - Micah
2. Move ffbookmark.js to a dropbox folder. - Micah
3. Right-click ffbookmark.js, "Share Dropbox Link" (link is now in your copy/paste memory). - Micah
4. Paste the link a text editor (Notepad, TextEdit, etc). - Micah
5. Hit enter key a few times for the next copy/paste—now copy the code block in the next comment and paste in editor: - Micah
javascript:void((function()%7Bvar e%3Ddocument.createElement(%27script%27)%3Be.setAttribute(%27type%27,%27text/javascript%27)%3Be.setAttribute(%27src%27,%27https%3A%2F%2Fdl.dropbox.com%2Fs%2F_______________%2Fffbookmark.js%27)%3Bdocument.body.appendChild(e)%7D)()) - Micah
6. Your link will look something like: https:// www.dropbox.com/s/kwfb2abcoyq46kx/ffbookmark.js - Micah
7. Copy the sequence of 15 letters that come after the "dropbox.com/s/" part of the url. - Micah
8. Replace the 15 underscores in the code block with the 15 letter you just copied. - Micah
9. Copy the new code block. Right-click bookmark bar button, click Edit, paste into URL: field. Save. - Micah
The attached ffbookmark.js is a minified version of ffbookmark.src.js (using Google's http://closure-compiler.appspot.com/home tool). It's almost 40% smaller than the uncompressed code. Using this alternate method, you're not dependent on the google drive doc in the original solution—it changing or disappearing. Neither of which likely, but there you go. - Micah
Enjoy. - Micah

Thanks! if someone doesn't use dropbox (like me :D) but has github, you can create a gist, serve it through rawgit.com, urlencode the rawgit url (http://meyerweb.com/eric...), and substitute all the url, not only the underscores in the bookmarklet - scotu

Seems like it's working again. - rönin
So I've been trying to use this, hosted on dropbox, and all I get is the blank bookmarklet in the upper right. That, and images are clickable to share via bookmarklet. But the text fields never show up. Any tips? - Andrew C (✔)
Andrew, you should probably try the latest version -- see http://friendfeed.com/ffhacks... - Stephen Mack
If you get stuck I can walk you through it tonight, Andrew. - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
It was my fault, I installed an extension (Privacy Badger) and it blocked FF from non-FF sites. - Andrew C (✔)

In hindsight, we should have pitched FF to our friends as "beautiful and ad free".
We still can. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Also, I think FF and Ello are both behind for not having native phone apps. FF, well, it was designed slightly before the smartphone era and acquired by FB before smartphones became so dominant. Ello, ... Ello feels like a boutique product that doesn't fit anyone but its own designers that well. - Andrew C (✔)
And of course FF now has one problem that Ello doesn't. Both may be ad-free, but I think the point of people who tried/are trying to move from FB to Ello is that they are fleeing FB, and well, FF is owned by FB. - Andrew C (✔)

I can't believe we're still having a conversation about FF as an ongoing network maintained with new features. It's not going to happen! - Eric - It's My Thing
History has shown that nothing seems to be able to stop us. We've all been forgotten about, switched off, you name it. FF - still here! - Iain Baker
Listen, I love this place. You know that. But let's not fool ourselves. It's nice, but attempting to grow it won't change what has already happened and how we just keep on with the help on FB engineers in their spare time. Do I wish they could bring it back? Sure. But come on everyone. Let's be realistic. - Eric - It's My Thing
Not saying it's realistic. Just ping ponging off of the OP and Stephen's first comment. FF's state is well known and well established. - DB, Lil LB's Dad
We're the social media version of morse code - an unseen heartbeat. Yeah, we're archaic, but if we were ever silenced, we'd be missed. - Iain Baker
I think we'd miss us but I don't think anyone in the tech world would care. Just a small blurb on Mashable or some other news site when they finally pull the plug for good. That's it. Count on it. - DB, Lil LB's Dad
I remember trying to get people of FF and they just didn't get it. They were already on FB and/or Twitter and just didn't get real-time, pulling in RSS, and now those features are pined for on other platforms. It's a testament of the forward looking people on this project that it's still standing and working as intended for the most part. - Eric - It's My Thing
Yeah I had similar experiences. - DB, Lil LB's Dad
It just clicks for some folks. Others not so much. I came here based upon a post by Jason Toney on Negroplease.com back in the day. It took a little while to get my bearings. I didn't really hit FF hardcore until I was out of work about a year later. - DB, Lil LB's Dad
My experience with Ello so far is that there isn't much user content, one of the few comments I did make either never got posted even though it seemed to, it's not actually beautiful or even pleasant to look at -- even the Tumblr and FF feeds are better -- just overall, they launched wide access way too early. - Andrew C (✔)
Agreed. For photo posting, it's gorgeous. It has nothing else, though. Except active development. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Ah, well, I rarely do anything with photos. Probably why I'm not on Instagram. - Andrew C (✔)
Same here with Ello. How is this the next gen of social? It doesn't even work yet. - Eric - It's My Thing
Ello already has spam. But so does FF so.. - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android

Oh God. Caffeine is having the exact opposite of the intended effect. Now what am I gonna do?
Damn. Time to taper off coffee, reset, then build again? - Stephen Mack

It's National Coffee Day. Perhaps coffee itself is taking a holiday. - Spidra Webster
Maybe you need to sleep more, Victor. - Andrew C (✔) from Android
LOL, yeah, probably. - Victor Ganata
Call it a day. Try again tomorrow. - DB, Lil LB's Dad
There comes a point where caffeine will not work any more and you just need to get some sleep. So, have a cup of coffee and go take a 20 minute nap. You'll wake up just as that cup of coffee will be ready to kick in, and it will work better. - April Russo
April knows - MoTO: Team Marina from Android
diminishing returns demands a detox on some scale to re-acquire efficacy. or something. - Big Joe Silence
water. When caffiene stops working, drink water. I find carboated water extra helpful/ - RudĩϐЯaЯïan
Make a deposit at the sleep bank so you can keep hitting dat coffee ATM. - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
LOL I love how we're giving lifestyle/health advice to a doctor. - Spidra Webster
He's constantly telling us how sleep-deprived he is, so... - Andrew C (✔)
Clearly time for an intervention. - Spidra Webster
You know what most interventions are sorely missing? Coffee breaks. - Micah from FFHound(roid)!

Love it when the user survey doesn't load.
It's like they can read my mind. Very satisfied by not having to take your survey! - Meg VMeg

It's Monday and raining. I woke up around 6-ish and decided to stay up, get dressed (in outside clothes), and go somewhere as practice for getting back to regular living hours again (maybe, someday). Walked down to the corner store for a few things. Point of the story is, I successfully talked to people in a nice way before I had any coffee in me.
on a rainy Monday morning just after sun-up, I might add. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
Teach us your ways ;) - Pete : Team Marina
I'm still recovering from the shock myself. Perhaps after I've had some coffee, I can reflect on what made this phenomenon possible. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
We are not worthy - MoTO: Team Marina
also the outing reminded me that the crossing guard on my corner is wonderful. don't know her name yet, but I can tell she's a lovely person by the way she always says hello to me, even though I have nothing to do with getting kids to or from the school down the street. I see her once in awhile on the other end of the school day; totally forgot that kids would be going to school around now bc I'm never out at this hour. So I got to see her and exchange comments about a rainy Monday morning. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
There has to be a certain amount of awesome in one's person to want to be a crossing guard, IMO. They sure don't do it for the $$ - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Nine's crossing guard was awesome. She gave all the kids candy canes on St Nicholas' Day.One day my mom was out walking and stepped off the curb in front of "Ms Gert" and she yelled "Hey! Susannah's Nana! Wait until I cross you! She knew Susannah's name AND her Nana. - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed
When Susannah started first grade, Ms Gert said "I remember you from when you carried her to the pediatrician in the Snugli." - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed
m9m, I rode past the school bus on my way home a minute ago and smiled remembering your crossing guard story. thanks for sharing! I can totally see that happening in Bawlmur. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra

Sometimes I see old people smoking and think "if only they'd started a decade earlier, I could be renting their apartment now."
