What if I want to post an important news item? Do I have to be vetted? Do I have to go through some sort of preliminary screening? I want to hear the reaction of the members of this forum for the 59 year old man who was killed for not giving the black boys a dollar. I am in shock the boys were not charged with a hate crime. After being called a "white mother fucking honkie" after years of teaching at an all black high school? I wanted to hear what other's thought?

One thing I'd like to point out... For some time, none of my controls in the reply box worked. (Reply box - The place you type your response when you click on 'reply'. The same box opens when you create a new thread.)

Anyhow, everything was grayed out - font options, attachment, photo, etc. it really made posting a new thread in News nearly impossible. I finally tried clicking on the little gear icon (last icon in the control bar)., and it fixed everything. Not sure what that little gear is for, but I had somehow accidentally clicked it and it'd disabled everything else. I'm sure this seems really dumb to many of you, but perhaps it'll help some other dummies like me..๐Ÿ˜…

Secret Docs Reveal Moderna Sent Coronavirus Vaccine To North Carolina University Weeks Before Pandemic


A confidentiality agreement shows potential coronavirus vaccine candidates were transferred from Moderna to the University of North Carolina in 2019, nineteen days prior to the official emergence of Covid-19 pandemic.

The confidentially agreement (read below) states that providers โ€˜Modernaโ€™ alongside the โ€˜National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseasesโ€™ (NIAID) agreed to tranfer โ€˜mRNA coronavirus vaccine candidatesโ€™ developed and jointly-owned by NIAID and Moderna to recipients โ€˜The Universisty of North Carolina at Chapel Hillโ€™ on 12th December 2019

Found on page 105 of the agreement
The material transfer agreement was signed the December 12th 2019 by Ralph Baric, PhD, at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and then signed by Jacqueline Quay, Director of Licensing and Innovation Support at the University of North Carolina on December 16th 2019.

The agreement was also signed by two representatives of the NIAID, one of whom was Amy F. Petrik PhD, a technology transfer specialist who signed the agreement on December 12th 2019 at 8:05 am.

The other signatory was Barney Graham MD PhD, an investigator for the NIAID, however this signature was not dated.

The final signatories on the agreement were Sunny Himansu, Modernaโ€™s Investigator, and Shaun Ryan, Modernaโ€™s Deputy General Councel. Both signautres were made on December 17th 2019.

All of these signatures were made prior to any knowledge of the emergence of the novel coronavirus. It wasnโ€™t until December 31st 2019 that the World Health Organisation (WHO) became aware of an alleged cluster of viral pneumonia cases in Wuhan, China.


But even at this point they had not determined that an alleged new coronavirus was to blame, instead stating the pneumonia was of โ€œunknown causeโ€.

It was not until January 9th 2020 that the WHO reported Chinese authorities had determined the outbreak was due to a novel coronavirus which later became known as SARS-CoV-2 with the resultant disease dubbed COVID-19.


So why was an mRNA coronavirus vaccine candidate developed by Moderna being transferred to the University of North Carolina on December 12th 2019?

(My note - im unable to post the document, its linked in the source.

The problem when using "blockquote" is if you're browsing with JavaScript disabled, (as many do, especially with Tor)[1][2] after a few lines the quote(s) cut off and you have no option at all to scroll through the blockquoted text, so it's useless to even try to read further.

Then you have to click on the news article linking to an external site which may or may not allow users with JS disabled to view their text, or maybe the external link content has moved or is no longer available, so you're fucked.

[1] Depending on how the user(s) have setup their TorBrowser: Security Level - Safest /and/ about:config javascript.enabled toggled to false will render JS truly disabled. Many people forget about the about:config option. Anyone using Tor and saying, "It works for me" need not respond, as you haven't completely disabled JS.

[2] It's also favorable to configure NoScript correctly in TorBrowser. Every time (yes, each and every time - for most users) you open TorBrowser, go into NoScript and UNCHECK EVERY BOX in the Default and Untrusted tabs. And you should never use "Trusted" mode if you care about going about things correctly.

= Steps to reproduce: follow my instructions and load up some of the news posts yourself and see how you like it.

Edit: I should also add that with JS disabled, you won't see the row of icons/options and you'll have to post in plain text mode (which is fine by me).

On another topic for discussion is this: linking to remote images.

It is my opinion that it is suspect to directly link to external sources such as news sites and pull in a remote image for the post. This exposes IP addresses of users here which is a privacy/security issue (excluding people using Tor, perhaps) rather than doing it the safe way and uploading attachment(s).

And, depending upon how the user's browser is configured, it will give a link back to this forum with every view. There's more I could write about this but I won't at this time... just something to think about.

Are you just talking about articles or image hosts also?

Hi HairMoccasins,

In my post, I was mainly speaking of articles. In addition to logging/storing IP, user agent, referral info, fingerprinting and so on, even so far as to getting down to the time user(s) post and matching it with image loading data. I won't go into the other attacks, which are many, including attacks against Tor users, I'll keep it simple. It's a gold mine as articles are usually time centered and while they may receive a number of hits later, most activity swarms around a general window in time.

(in a perfect world) Now, while I had thought of but didn't purposely mention was also image hosts. That would be a more radical suggestion/implementation as there are tracker(s) there, too, but as I said, it's more of a radical proposal which I won't make.

And let's not forget after a year, two years, sometimes sooner, the image host goes 100% fee based without free storage, sites which break the image(s) after a time, etc. I can't count the number of times on other forums how I've looked at an old thread and there would be column after column of broken links and even broken links which would tell you they're broken and sometimes the image host which was used. And a lot of the time, the user who had posted the images are long gone.

Sometimes, as I have done in the past, I have used archive.org and/or archive.is (archive.today, whatever) which can be used as a backup but even those are at risk of being taken down by whomever wants it bad enough, or just break for whatever reason or have some ugly captcha page which thirsts for your JavaScript to be enabled in order to complete tracked task and continue on to the article(s)/ image(s)

That should be my final edit. :p
