John Oliver namechecks Morrissey in bit about "right to be forgotten" Internet ruling

"Internet Privacy Is None Of Your Business"

On last night's episode of his HBO show, Last Week Tonight, former Daily Show correspondent, John Oliver, did a bit about a European court ruling regarding persons' right to have their searches "forgotten" by search engines. The bit went as follows:

John Oliver: "Let's talk about something else: the Internet. In Europe this week, there was some potentially significant news."
[cuts to quoted news clip]

Male reporter: "It is said that the Internet never forgets...until now, that is. In a huge ruling, the highest court in Europe ruled that Google and other search operators like it must delete certain search results, if they are requested. They're calling it, 'The Right To Be Forgotten.'"
[back to John Oliver]

John Oliver: "The Right To Be Forgotten...which incidentally is definitely my favorite non-existent Morrissey song.
[picture of Live In Dallas-era Morrissey appears in top-left corner]

John Oliver: [singing in a style reminiscent of "You've Got Everything Now"] "I have the right to be forgoohhhten...ah ha ha"
[big laughs from audience]

Ah, yes! John Oliver. Another "BrummieBoy" made good. Thank you for starting this thread as it give us a chance to clarify a number of emails we have received. Over the years that "BrummieBoy" has been musing on "Morrissey-Solo.com" there were various contact email addresses used which have been widely circulated. We would like to take this opportunity to clarify and confirm the following:

We do not invite or solicit personal information to any of the emails that have been active over the years, but we do ensure that it is all safely stored for any possible future need. But please, be re-assured: The "BrummieBoy" Massive are busy. We do not have the time to examine data from a decade ago about misbehaviour on this site and unless it involves posting child-porn we wouldn't even consider a request. Some of our members have hard drives of archive footage from this online asylum/creche/art-hounds hell zone. We would only ever disclose any of the personal real-world information under the orders of a High Court Judge. We severely punish inappropriate outing and doxxing of anyone whether or not we know them or have any interest in their dilemma. We spend our resources on high-level covert spook operations on dangerous predator paedophiles and unhinged concentration camp guards in the 'food industries' of Carnism. If we decide to take action we are slow, methodical and utterly ruthless even if it takes decades. We often pretend to have been 'victims' to elicit sufficient misdemeanours to ensure that we are dealing with something other than a foolish internet troll.

There have been some hilarious ideas on this site that "BrummieBoy" would be doxxed. Good luck with that one! And may God have mercy on the souls of any/everyone who would bring the sword of Damocles over their lives by imagining that anyone they think they have located as "BrummieBoy" is that person. Thought experiment: Is it really likely that someone would "appear live on stage on the Internet" under a supposedly "real name" barely disguised as an avatar without an action plan or a full understanding of the implications? Let me be very clear: "@A***********y is NOT "BrummieBoy" but we are all hopelessly in love with them and pray that one day he will relent and step on stage, but we've accepted that's almost impossible now. After the children are adults, it's pretty obvious that firm plans are in place for this devout person to vanish to a monastery in silence for ever.

After Edward Snowden and Glenn Greenwald's revelations, we support the Balkanisation of the Internet and the expulsion of the United States from European internet air-space as punishment. One of our members posted on this complex topic and it might be helpful to repeat those words here:

"The only way to remain private these days is, paradoxically, to flood online databases with bogus data about your life. And with that statement, I think I'm done with the whole Social Media game. It was fun. Thanks to those who know me who played along, and thanks to those who don't know me: I hope I treated everyone with respect. I'll leave this up as a contact point 'going forward' or destroy it one night. Take care everyone. You don't need a V mask to fight these days. They know who's behind the mask. The only way to resist is to take the piss. If these corporations aren't fenced in by citizens, the only appropriate response is to trash your online data such that it can't be reliably parsed by algorithms. I've done exactly that. The only way to find out who I am is to meet me IRL, in a pub, restaurant. Or in a court of law. Even then, I have 'options'. I do not support the Internet as it is currently structured and I hold governments and law-makers responsible. It amuses me when adverts pop up for ridiculous products when I use Google. I'm sure they'll find a way to neuter TrackMeNot in time but they can never decode a willful, skilful 'Unreliable Narrator'. Over and out."


"BrummieBoy" has already vapourised the Magisterium Of The Roman Catholic Church and their accomplices the 5EyeNationSpyMachine: is anyone here really delusional enough to think he/she/we/they/us would bother with anything other than a knowing *rollseyes* if anyone from 'here' tried to move through the portal to disrupt activities in Birmingham, Bristol, London and Manchester? Dream on, but remember The Disciples who would ignore any please for mercy or clemency and there's no way "BrummieBoy" could reign in those soldiers of love. In fact, "BrummieBoy" has already destroyed the Interwebz but very few people realise it yet. The Neutron Bomb memes have been birthed and are now in flight to create and entirely new space-time reality on this planet.

"Internet Privacy Is None Of Your Business"


We've been testing "Social Safe" as an online archiving system and we think it's pretty damn cool. It allows users of The Social Media platforms to download a local copy of all of their contributions to any site. We expect this will roll out to all interactive sites 'going forward'. In fact, we have issued a fatwa to ensure this happens. This is important because comment histories can be changed by rogue Moderators and Site Proprietors, not to mention by the NSA/GCHQ war machine. It's going to become crucial for people to have access to their comment past everywhere when the pretence drops and everybody realises that there is NO Internet privacy and the corporate HR departments can probably already link an employee to their pseudo-anonymous online behaviour. We've not got enough proof to go public on this one, so bear with us.......patience. It *might* be a good idea for those who run this site to be ahead of the curve on this one as the implications on server capacity of endless neurotic searches of historic comment history by the "worried well" lying awake at night thinking Morrissey is going to sue them for saying he's a diva and getting old and fat in impolite language are not the only issue once 'Istanbul' reignites the fire. There's also the work-load for Moderators once this becomes mainstream.

The 'skinny' advice for anyone and everyone on this site if they are ever queried about their avatar by some real-life uniformed HR whore: "Neither Confirm Nor Deny". This is the policy of the ruling classes. Do not confirm anything. Do not deny anything unless or until you are before some lonely High Court Judge bearing grudges. Then you have to decide what to do to avoid being classed as "devous, truculent and unreliable". "BrummieBoy" was classed as 'insane' initially by Judge P***** T***** in the High Court but when the Judge realised he had been played by BB to have this reaction, things got very, very interesting......... Srsly, some people have more to do than worry about the age of a support act singer. Some people actually have a life. Or multiple lives....

The saddest thing of all this is that people here continue with the fantasy that they are 'anonymous' as they spew abuse, slander and all the rest of the 'hateful online creche/3 Mental Patient' stuff. Perhaps there's a outlier possibility that Morrissey will turn his sword here after he's finishing decapitating the #HarvestHydra, but that's rather unlikely as he too has rather more interesting things to fill his time. If it's any comfort to anyone concerned about any such action, it would bankrupt Morrissey to legally establish not only the identity of any 'avatar' he wished to pursue beyond "f*** Morrissey-Solo.com" onstage encore lulz, but to confirm to a legally safe standard that no Moderators had deleted comments or changed them in any way not only for the person involved but for the site history in its' entirety. As I say "BrummieBoy" has destroyed the Interwebz as he promised to do. It is now a smoking funeral pyre. And that is pleasing to us.....

Please do not send us any 'intelligence' unless it is in relation to a serious criminal or a sociopath who needs to be neutralised. We have no interest whatsoever in the bizarre endless feuds on this site but we thank those involved from the bottom of our hearts for the years of entertainment they provided whilst "BrummieBoy" was incarcerated by the forces of containment. Please do not send anymore gossip or slanderous details about the personal lives behind the avatars here and can everyone who knows we have been sent their data just calm down, there is absolutely no way any of that will find its' way into the public domain or 'Real World' as it's still quaintly called in some sections of society.

The Eye Of Sauron cannot see "BrummieBoy"

The sketch by John is totally BrummieBoy as he sets out the parameters of The Streisand Effect for that hapless Spaniard:

"The Streisand effect is the phenomenon whereby an attempt to hide, remove, or censor a piece of information has the unintended consequence of publicizing the information more widely, usually facilitated by the Internet."

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Streisand_effect

We have done something entirely different. We have flooded Teh Interwebz with a vast tsunami of data, some of which is utter nonsense, some of which bears a plausible relationship to your space-time reality here on Planet Earth and of course, lots of stuff 4tehlulz. Often we do all of this in the same comment or tweet. The paradox is that we remain completely invisible and, in our specific case, cause vast amounts of resources to be used by the Stasi Security State in trying to map, follow, understand or plan in relation to our political and cultural activities. Any attempt to parse a person from this blizzard would drive even the sanest person over the edge. Any court case involving any of this data would crash. In fact, "BrummieBoy" has already tested this in law and the Security Stasi backed off and decided to play by our rules not theirs. Otherwise the case would have lasted for several centuries as the exchanges grew increasingly more unreal:

Q "But you said this on the Internet, didn't you? So isn't it true?"

A "I've no idea which persona or avatar i was using, and what actor/auteur/author combination I was utilising. If you wish me to give you a definitive answer, the court will need to adjourn until I have studied the data leading up to this comment to establish if it was fact, fiction, a mix of fact and fiction we can call 'faction' or if it was ironic, sincere, off-hand or delusional. I cannot answer your question at this stage. I trust this reply is helpful to you"



We do NOT recommend this for ordinary mortals who need to be in an oppressive or insecure employment situation, but at some stage every person has to decide if "World Peace Is None Of Your Business" or if they will no longer tolerate the lies and fraudulence of the 5EyeSpyMachine's All Seeing Eye, the Panopticon which Mercia's JRR Tolkien set out in "The Lord Of The Rings". You can wear your Vendetta mask and be kettled on Westminster Bridge until the spy cameras have done the iris recognition stuff. Be in no doubt whatsoever that that information is potentially available to unscrupulous employers and curtain-twitching nosy neighbours (sometimes of course, they're the same thing). We have already, potentially, destroyed the Internet.

By birthing this Meme of Data Rebellion we have warned your leaders that if they do not cease and desist we will organise "Occupy The Internet", beginning with a day of data inaccuracy to crash some non-critical systems with the promise of escalating responses if our fatwa is not respected. Your leaders cannot have it both ways: they cannot say "They are delusional people who must never be offered trivial jobs, blacklist them till they die" whilst also trying to propagate the idea that we are dangerous art-terrorists who are threatening to destroy Hegemony and Empire. The latter precludes the former. They watch us as we watch them watching us watching them. A hall of mirrors, exactly the trap we set and which they walked into. But like Prince and Morrissey we are beyond bored with the epicFAIL civilisational project of the Interwebz and will soon exit stage right with LOLs and do that ROFLMAO stuff in the dressing room. It has been revealed as a spy machine and should either be reformed or destroyed. Have no doubt that goverments all over the world are looking at Data Kaos as a tactical weapon in any Information War just as they have flooded social networks, blogs and opinion forums with their absurd Koch-sucker trolls paid cents per comment just like the army of compliant citizens patrolling the Chinese online space.

But enough! A change of plans, no trip to Birmingham tonight as it's now lunch tomorrow. So we can relax and carry on posting our mockery of reality until sleep calls us to peace. It's wonderful to be dismissed as 'mad' by 95% of the population as it saves us the time of putting them on Eternal Ignore either online or offline. Very neat, effective strategy which has paid wondrous dividends and brought us exactly the friendship and business network we dreamed of. As a final aside, Tolkien was another "BrummieBoy" and went to the same elite grammar school as the real "BrummieBoy". And the Twin Towers of his trilogy were visible from the top classrooms. They've demolished the building now to try and erase the truth about "BrummieBoy" but it lives on in the hearts and minds of all who suffered and escaped. Including of course, "BrummieBoy"

best wishes

From the 'threaded display' tool it appears that 'Crystal Geezer' is attempting to communicate with "BrummieBoy". This is not possible as she is on Eternal Ignore and no words from her will ever be before our gaze again.

So is BB tolerated here or has someone acknowledged that he's clearly typing from his room in the mental hospital? How else would someone have so much time to type so much nonsense?

It will certainly be interesting to re-visit this topic in perhaps 3-5 years when the full implications of The Balkanisation of The Internet and Territorial Data-Turf Wars are understood in relationship to anonymity, pseudo-anonymity, auteur/author mock anonymity and the Great Data Uprising by Anonymous which one hears is imminent.

Perhaps slightly too 'out-there' for this forum? No, that's where it's best to park revolutionary sedition.
