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 安慰剂 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.
  • AcupunctureMeridiansacupuncture 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 这里)

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 mistakenantsgo figure.

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

我没有收到多大 垃圾邮件 我的手机. 我收到的随机短信就有关场​​合 “特别” 提供等等. 有人也曾经sms'd “我代表我” 这些中的一个 深夜 电子电视 特价广告. 每个月我收到了一个诱人的消息,通知我一下,我错过了什么出来. 虽然我不知道, 有没有不发送列表,我可以在MTN添加自己, Vodacom公司, 或细胞-C?

可以在任何手机提供商列表中的所有已发送的短信,你的通过短信群发系统,在上个月的公司, 例如? 而且我可以告诉我的手机供应商,可以在无需发送短信花费我R7.50字的垃圾邮件 “停止”? [编辑… 原来,这条短信是 应该 以最低可能的速率进行充电. 谢谢, 风滚草]

最后, 我听说这些服务,你付出永远接收内容. 永远在它的地方,他们认为你希望他们给你每天收取R5送你东西的服务. 我妹妹有一个问题,她从未有过的通话费. 这是因为她的R20每周津贴会由其中的一个,第二天被吞没整 “服务” 这给她发了一个愚蠢的图片,扣除R10. 用她的电脑约5℃使用她下载了相同或相似的图片 谷歌图片搜索 我不得不 大小和裁剪 它没有明显的变形或走样完美贴合她的手机屏幕. 同时, 他们声称的版权是LAME内容. 我敢打赌,他们偷的照片从网上自己反正.

到底这是比较容易让她获得了新的预付费号码. 我只是希望他们不仍然要发送更多的内容任何人其回收后得到她的老字号. 😮
