Shouldn’t We All Quit Using True Twit Validation? Why I did…


Robot Attack!

WHY I QUIT TRUE TWIT VALIDATION:

Check the sent file in your DMs; you will see that if you are a subscriber to True Twit Validation you are sending an automated DM to every tweeter that follows you, requiring them to jump through a captcha hoop if they want to follow you. Personally, I object to treating people who express an interest in following me like a bot. Thinking evil against a person is against my religion. Zechariah 7:10 says, “…let none of you devise or imagine or think evil against his brother in your heart.” TrueTwitValidator treats everybody as if they are an evil bot. Zechariah 8:17 says, “And let none of you think or imagine or devise evil or injury in your hearts against his neighbor…for all these things I hate, says Jahuwah.” To my way of thinking, TrueTwitValidator devises injury against your neighbors by taking from them one of their most valuable possessions; something of infinite value and of limited quantity…their time.

What does a bot do? A bot automates things. What then is an automated Direct Message sent automatically? That is a bot automating things for the True Twit Validating user; and not very well at that. The True Twit Validator user says within himself, I hate the evil automated bots, so, I am going to use  a good automated bot to protect myself from them. To use a bot, to protect oneself from bots, while disparaging bots is hypocracy in my book which is also against my religion. A search of all of the Scriptures revealed 19 references to hypocrites; all of them condemnatory.

I can spot a bot myself in my tweet stream and block it. This allows me to think well of everyone that attempts to follow me and not to treat them as if they are an evil bot.

Also, I have watched a computer decipher & fill in a captcha. I don’t know how it did it, but, it did. Maybe it used voice recognition. So, a captcha is no barrier to a current, smart program/bot.

Now I’ve had another thought. True Twit Validation is reminding me of airport security. Supposedly some radical Muslims hijacked airliners on 9/11. Since then, we must all pay the price by going through airport security even though we’ve never shown any characteristic of being a radical Muslim costing us millions of hours of productive time. In spite of these measures, somebody sneaks a bomb on a plane in his crotch, so now we will all be subjected to crotch searches. That is until someone sneaks a bomb on a plane in their anus; at which time we will all be subjected to cavity searches if we want to take a plane to travel. At least we will if the same logic is followed out. Here’s my question; why wait? Why not start the cavity searches before someone sneaks a bomb on a plane in their anus?

In the same manner, because some people use bots to follow other Tweeters, if we want to follow a True Twit Validator, typically, we must expend our time to validate by filling out the captcha. Only one Tweeter has ever checked my assertion that I watched a bot fill in a captcha and after checking his followers discovered that he had indeed been followed by spammers in spite of using True Twit Validation. So, a few bad apples make us all have to validate, and, just like airline security validating is not keeping out the bad guys in the first place.

Is it all making sense now?

    Thanks for sharing this. I will take down my true twit calidation system sometime today, since after reading this, new light appeared on me. I am opposed to bots and scammers, which was my reason for having that true twit in the first place. I guess I was not thinking about what I was doing, because my religion is based on Love, not hate, or distrust. G-d bless!

    Sorry you feel that way but after having to close another account due to hackers I felt the need for additional security

    Yes, I know full well that you received a message asking you to validate. I cut down on the spam that way. I will follow you.

    There was one day that I received about 15 spam follows. That is why I use TrueTwit.

    You are correct. I had just turned it on, but quickly canceled because of the hassle. Sorry for the trouble. Try again.

    I didn’t sign up because I didn’t think it was necessary. What’s all the biblical stuff about? Is it wrong to lock your car when you park it in a mall parking lot? Isn’t that treating everyone as evil?

    If somebody really wants in your car, they are getting in. I put the Scriptures first and try as much as possible to put my faith in the Creator Jahuwah (Yahu-wah). I’ve learned that if you put your trust in that lock Jahuwah will leave you to all the protection that lock can provide…which isn’t much.
