the concern I have about doxxing is what happens when you get it wrong, which many people have. then innocence peoples lives can be absolutely ruined. death threats, losing jobs, families broken, etc.

In addition to physical training, brain training is also indispensable for anyone. But, if we can choose to passively train our brains with highly entertaining games, why not give it a try? And [url=https://sudoku247.co]Sudoku 247[/url] is a recommendation of mine! (if you have a better and more useful game, please share it with me! Thanks for that!).

The classic mind games existed decades ago, who still remembers well now? I don't want to talk about their appeal but about the value, they bring to players. In addition to being highly entertaining, mind games also help us passively train our brains, and I think that's very helpful. One of those classic games is Sudoku, currently, sudoku is being collected by Sudoku 247 and is completely free for everyone. Why don't we try to experience and evaluate this game when the benefits it brings are undeniable?

This is the highlight of my podcast week. Security talk, hilarious, and I end smiling. Not often you can say that with security talk.

Don't trust main stream media, period. I haven't seen actual news from any of them other than Op Ed garbage for years.

Seriously, Americans don't want China censorship on free speech.it is as simple as that. Does not mean we are kicked off but yes, censoring, shadow banning, crap like that is against free speech, which is something they all said they were for. Facebootoot & Twatter lied and said they were a place for free speech and then lied. At least tell the truth, guys.

it would be nice to hear an episode that isn't political and actually deals with security related issues. But that would be a perfect world. Sad!!!!!
