How can someone be so angry and so vicious, to push someone, to push them far beyond where they’ve already told you they’re not willing to venture. And when the buck gets stopped, to then just drop that person and accuse them of the worst.

You’re hurting someone who you should be caring about. Life sucks sometimes. You don’t always get what you want but that doesn’t mean that you have to make other peopleslives miserable.

Build a bridge.

I recently came across this article about how we should be a lot more concerned about alternative medicines than we’ve been. Perhaps I should be more outspoken about this myself. Very few of the people I know actually bother to lobby for the causes they believe in. And it is a shame.

Reiki recently came up at a Geekdinner and it got me into researching some of the other complementary and alternative medicines. Reiki sounds like an elaborate plasebo if you ask meand so do a lot of the other alternative medicines. There are some of these which I previously thought were outright legitimate. It seems I should be more skeptical of my own information store.

Some alternative medical avenues into which I believe the modern world needs to do some further scientific sifting:

  • HomeopathyDiluting a substance makes it less harmful but doesn’t make it less beneficial. Bulldust.
  • AcupunctureMeridians dan acupuncture points have no contemporary physiological relevance in medicine. This is related to the concepts of Qi in Energy Medicine.
  • Energy MedicineEnergy or Qi fields in the body affect your health. Fixing, breaking, or manipulating the flow of these fields affects the ability of your body to heal itself and fight illness. This boils down to practitioners claiming to perform magic.
  • IridologyThis is for diagnosing illness. Changes in specific parts of your iris indicate where and what type of illness may be affecting your body. How exactly can your eye track illness in your body and give your doctor afix-mewishlist in a colour-by-number format?

So I gots me s’more spam to mah mobile. o.O

Thankfully, it turns out that there is some proper recourse. Thanks to Stefano for pointing me in the right direction. (original post di sini)

WASPA (or Wireless Application Service Providers’ Association) is theIndustry Bodyfor Wireless Service Providers in SA. They have a complaints page where you get to submit all the juicy details about how a WASPA (or WASP) has breached the WASPA Code of Conduct.

Perhaps the provider in question gets featured on the complaint reports pagewhere everyone will see how much they’ve been fined along with a full report of the complaint. This includes WASPA’s investigation and a summary of the communications with the Service Provider concerning the matter. Importantly, its all publicly accessible.

I just wish people actually KNEW about this thing though. I certainly didn’t know that a WASP isn’t just the name of a (usually) flying insect? Yeahturns out some wasps don’t have wings and are mistaken for antsgo figure.

Back to the topic at hand: Spread the word! And lodge your complaints!

Saya tidak menerima banyak spam yang ke ponsel saya. Saya telah menerima sms acak pada kesempatan tentang “khusus” menawarkan dan sebagainya. Seseorang juga pernah sms'd “atas nama saya” ke salah satu larut malam e-tv spesial iklan. Setiap bulan saya menerima pesan menarik memberitahu saya tentang apa yang saya kehilangan. Aku bertanya-tanya meskipun, apakah ada daftar no-kirim saya dapat menambahkan diri untuk di MTN, Telkomsel, atau sel-C?

Dapatkah daftar provider seluler semua perusahaan yang telah mengirimkan sms melalui sistem sms massal pada bulan lalu, misalnya? Dan bisa saya katakan provider selular saya untuk CAN SPAM bahwa tanpa harus mengirim sms biaya saya R7.50 dengan kata “BERHENTI”? [mengedit… Ternyata SMS ini seharusnya akan dikenakan tarif terendah. Terima kasih, Tumbleweed]

Akhirnya, Aku pernah mendengar tentang layanan ini di mana Anda membayar untuk menerima konten terus-menerus. Menerus dalam nya layanan di mana mereka menganggap Anda ingin mereka mengenakan biaya R5 setiap hari untuk mengirimkan sesuatu. Adik saya punya masalah di mana dia pernah airtime. Itu karena dia uang saku mingguan R20 akan ditelan utuh keesokan harinya oleh salah satu dari ini “jasa” yang mengirimnya gambar konyol dan dipotong R10. Dia bisa download gambar yang sama atau mirip dengan menggunakan komputer-nya sekitar 5c menggunakan Google'S pencarian gambar dan aku harus ukuran dan dipotong agar sesuai layar ponsel nya sempurna tanpa distorsi terlihat atau aliasing. Pada saat yang sama, mereka mengklaim hak cipta atas konten yang Lame. Aku berani bertaruh mereka mencuri gambar dari internet itu sendiri tetap.

Pada akhirnya itu lebih mudah baginya untuk mendapatkan nomor prabayar baru. Saya hanya berharap bahwa mereka tidak masih akan mengirim lebih banyak konten untuk siapa pun mendapat nomor lama setelah yang didaur ulang. 😮
