I've been following this like crazy. ICANN has put a hold on it until the entire transaction has been explained. This has gotten ugly because ICANN doesn't normally get involved. https://www.theregister.co.uk/2019/12/11/icann_transparency_org/

I am making a more defined SPAM block list. I'm annoyed I have to do it but forums are where good data can be discovered so to me it's worth it.

All boards except the public board have been put into members only area. We are sorry for the inconvenience but the SPAM has gotten to an annoying level. We might decide in the future to open it up but for now it is closed.

I've decided to discontinue all new members due to SPAM. Any new members will need to directly contact an existing member. If you don't know any that unfortunately you don't be able to until this stop has been lifted.

Wasn't exactly sure which section to post in. Princeton university students made a tool to see what's "spying" on you.

https://iot-inspector.princeton.edu

Hope fully they make it for other OS soon. Honestly, not sure why it was made for macOS first but my guess was for the smaller audience or the team that made it just liked that OS and want to see if people even caught on.
so how do we spy back?
I'm guessing it scans the computer or network traffic and builds a list. I know Firefox now tracks a list of all the items that tack you so you can see trends built right into the browser itself.

In a surprising turn of events, a key Congressional committee, the House Judiciary Committee, has voted to approve the Marijuana Opportunity Reinvestment and Expungement (MORE) Act of 2019, or H.R. 3884, which would effectively put an end to cannabis prohibition in the United States of America, on a federal level by removing it from the Controlled Substances Act.

Michigan adults 21 and older will be able to buy marijuana starting Dec. 1, the state Marijuana Regulatory Agency announced on Wednesday.

Michigan is one of 11 states and the District of Columbia which have legalized the use of marijuana for recreational purposes. The other states are Alaska, California, Colorado, Illinois, Maine, Massachusetts, Nevada, Oregon, Vermont and Washington.

Michiganís medical marijuana dispensaries will be permitted to sell up to 50 percent of cannabis products on the recreational market if they are at least 30 days old, according to a bulletin from the state regulatory agency.

Just a thought but I wonder if this has anything to do with the new RCS Messaging that I've been hearing about.

United States / Random text messages sent overnight 11072019
« on: November 08, 2019, 09:01:28 AM »
So I was hearing a few people had a bunch of random texts from people they have in their contacts randomly texting them overnight. I received one too from a buddy (aka Anthony lol). When I sent him a screen shot, he said it wasn't him. Anyone hear anything out there? It was all SMS texts and between 2:30a-4a EST.

This is all over the news now... something fishy was definitely going on.

Gonna post then update my post with sited paragraphs.

https://www.forbes.com/sites/mikeadams/2019/11/05/reasons-marijuana-legalization-seems-to-be-failing/

Quote
One of the biggest arguments made by cannabis advocates when trying to sell their spiel to politicians and voters was that legal weed would eliminate the black market. This, they said, would make it more difficult for children to get their hands on pot than in decades past while also generating significant tax revenue for the states. But the underground pot trade hasnít really gone anywhere. In fact, it is only growing stronger now that criminal organizations have the luxury of being domestically based instead of running distribution from Mexico.

Quote
Furthermore, the black market in legal states is carrying over to areas of prohibition, as well. It is part of the reason that the counterfeit vapes said to be making so many people severely ill (and even killing some) have become so prevalent. Law enforcement agencies all across the country have also been complaining that people trafficking pot in from legal states is making their jobs more difficult.

Quote
Diehard cannabis advocates might argue that all of the black market madness exists because of conflicting federal and state law. There was even a point where I would have been inclined to agree that federal prohibition is the real monster behind all of this ruckus. But Iím not convinced at this juncture, at least not 100 percent. Why? Well, just take a look to the north in Canada, where marijuana has been legal nationwide for the past year. Itís black market pot trade is still way stronger than the legal sector.

Quote
Marijuana legalization, at least as far as the United States is concerned, hasnít even accomplished the modest task of reducing the number of arrests made in this country for pot possession.

Believe it or not, in spite of more states bringing weed into the mainstream, the latest FBI crime data shows that police forces in America still busted more people for pot last year than they did in 2016 and 2017. Well over a half a million people went to jail for marijuana possession during that time.

Considering all of the insanity surrounding the cannabis trade, itís hard to argue that marijuana legalization is working. It should be, but the scene is just too convoluted. Whatís scary is some 2020 presidential candidates, like Bernie Sanders, have proposed ending federal prohibition using the same types of taxed and regulatory models where high taxes and increased spending are all part of the plan. Itís difficult to imagine, though, knowing what we know now, that the American people are ready to support such a high-dollar scheme. Sure, the polls show the majority of the U.S. population supports marijuana legalization. But that doesnít mean they will buy it legally once it happens.

EDIT: Ok cited what I was reading mostly. It's a chunk of the article itself but some info could've been left out which I did.
