douchebag: Where is mpwp
trinque: ah yeah, she gets cruel estimates of what her pizza money would be worth today all the time.
mircea_popescu: what's she specialize in anyway, chaucer ?

lobbes: http://btcbase.org/log/2018-05-20#1815879 << also to note, you would have had to compromise my network (which, sure, possible) because the box you achieved RCE on is a dedicated public toilet box containing no privkeys of import. I use a proper airgapped machine for important stuff (ala http://trilema.com/2013/how-to-airgap-a-practical-guide/)
a111: Logged on 2018-05-20 03:52 douchebag: trinque: also in theory, since I got RCE on lobbes bot, in theory I could have determined the balance of the bot if I decided to comprimise the system rather than proof of concept :^)
lobbes: so, in theory, sure. But in practice you'd have to expend quite a bit of effort to find the gpg privkey in order to decrypt deedbot's challenge to determine the balance of that one deedbot wallet, which still isn't finding a flaw in deedbot, just good social engineering attack (e.g. picking a key off someone's person does not mean the lock the key belongs to is flawed)
douchebag: I could have got a reverse shell on the box though, is the gpg privkey for the bot not sitting on the vulnerable machine?
mircea_popescu: dude, discussions of could have are stupid.
douchebag: I just don't think social engineering would be the right word to use for remote command execution
mircea_popescu: i guess not.
Mocky: couldn't be arsed sounds worse to me than couldn't find
trinque: properly, if he had lobbes key, he is lobbes.
mircea_popescu: well, lobbesbot.
trinque: ah right
mircea_popescu: but anyway, yes, the social engineering part is trying to downgrade the look at the bot (ie, ANY one key) to look at randos (ie, a CERTAIN key).
mircea_popescu: and yes it's misplaced.
mircea_popescu: aaand in today;s excellent old trilema, http://trilema.com/2017/pronouncements-on-camp/
lobbes: douchebag: The 'social engineering' in my statement refers to leveraging the RCE to (painfully, because lobbesbot privkey does not control any deedbot funds, so you'd need -my- privkey, which does not reside on public toilet box you RCE'd into) use deedbot -normally- by becoming lobbes through key theft
lobbes: (lobbesbot privkey, also, does not reside on that box, but you know)
lobbes: but yeah, "could talk", bleh
lobbes: off to bed
spyked: lobbes, I am curious: how do you have lobbesbot self-voice then? do you do it manually?
spyked: (I suspect there is no way to separate privkey storage from bot operation *and* automatically perform e.g. deedbot self-voicing; but I might be wrong)
trinque: spyked: one could make many voicing OTPs, and put them in a hopper for the bot.
spyked: hm. so trinque, OTPs don't have any sort of expiration? the scenario I'm thinking of is that eventually my (for example) home ISP would do some stupid thing that would lead to the TCP connection going down. but that could happen in a week, a month or six from now, so I'd want that OTP to be valid whenever that happens.
spyked: if that's the case, then this semi-automated approach is pretty neat, actually.
trinque: I don't have a defined expiration time for them. If bot operators are interested in ^ maybe we'll go ahead and say it's 3 months, or whatever's sensible.
mircea_popescu: the above ^ is the current model ftr.

a111: Logged on 2018-05-18 03:51 trinque is peeling back the layers trying to see what gpg is cranky about. meanwhile, why'd the (defpackage :v ...) go away?
esthlos: if I need to be able to respond within a day to work with you guys, I will do my best to change things around
esthlos: but you should know that, new as I am, it takes me a long time to even get through one day of log while understanding what is going on
esthlos: now for your comments: getting rid of the defpackage was a bad oversight, no real reason. My guess why gpg is failing is because I'm using 2.2.4 while I think most of you guys use 1.x . Moving to 1.x is on my backlog, but it was deprioritized becasue I didn't want to spend the time converting my keys. Another oversight, I suppose
esthlos: now I'm going to go through the logs and see if I've missed anything else. let me know what you've done on http://btcbase.org/log/2018-05-20#1815850 so we don't double spend on time. and to sum it up, yeah, my bad on the communication

esthlos: glad to hear it!
mod6: sooo... trinque, is the neg-rating on douchebag going to stand? because mircea_popescu has rented him a rockchip (right?) and according to the rules we laid out, I think we said that douchebag would be removed from access to the hardware.
mod6: mircea_popescu: thoughts?
trinque: what do you mean by "going to stand" ?
mod6: Is this a 'forever -1'?
trinque: I really don't like the idea of negotiating with anyone on what my ratings shall be
mod6: This is not a negotiation. Just asking what the deal is. Cause Pizarro is going to end up removing him from the hardware.
douchebag: I just need to set up an mpwp blog and post the work I already have done
trinque: if you follow the log lines I referenced back, you'll see exactly why I did it.
mod6: Ok forget I asked.
trinque: if you press me on terms I'll remove the -1, you risk creating a mommyprocess anyone with a negrate can appeal to.
mod6: mircea_popescu: how should Pizarro handle this, in your opinion, given the last conversation about this?
douchebag: I already have a webserver running on my pizarro box. I just don't know how I'm supposed to unpack mpwp
mod6: trinque: I only asked you, not as an appeal process, personally I couldn't care less. However, just wondering if you are going to remove that rating should the man do whatever in the next say day or two, whatever.
trinque: I think "nobody does business with any L1-negrated party" is a bit strict. folks need to be able to beat someone over the head with disapproval without removing their ability to take part in society by having done so.
mod6: This is what mircea_popescu wanted it to be, regardles.
trinque: mod6: if I tell you, I'm giving someone I'm already punishing for weaselbehavior a defined mechanism to weasel further
mod6: This is fine, my thinking is that he will be removed. If the rating changes at some point, then we will reconsider allowing him to be a customer.
douchebag: ./v.pl p v mpwp mp-wp_genesis.vpatch
douchebag: HEAD: mp-wp_genesis.vpatch not found in flow
trinque: (this is not even to mention that either he or the other guy was contacting me as tittynicks asking when their money will be sent, lol)
trinque: douchebag: since I can read, I can see a spurious "v" in that command
mod6: that's fine trinque -- the extra 'v' is for 'verbose' mode.
trinque: ah, alright
mod6: it's not found in the flow because something is either wrong with the signature of the vpatch, or the signatory is not in the current wot.
douchebag: okay, that makes sense
trinque: if douchebag wants to appeal to me directly, he can.
douchebag: !!key hanbot
esthlos: to butt in: should only patches with good seals show in the flow?
trinque: mod6: contracts often have a cure period, eh? suppose it's "negrated party has $time to fix his reputation"
esthlos: ok, will fix that
mod6: There is no contract here. I don't want to ask anyone about their ratings. Perhaps I shouldn't have asked what I asked there above.
mod6: Was just trying to avoid (perhaps stupidly) some Pizarro gyrations.
mod6: Because I don't want us to ever ask someone about things such as this; their rating of someone.
trinque: the intent here is to force him to make good on his word. earlier he said the rockchip was going to be a tool to get acquainted with trb, and now it's http://btcbase.org/log/2018-05-20#1815869
a111: Logged on 2018-05-20 03:43 douchebag: Alright, I can have that done in the next week or so. I'm currently using the rockchip box to host a webpage to troll someone, so I want the lulz there to continue to it's full potential
trinque: because dick-pulling comes before the republic. immature bullshit to be weeded out.
trinque: mod6: I don't mean there's an actual contract, just referencing the notion of "cure period"
mod6: And what I should have said is: In light of the douchebag being neg-rated by a someone, a TMSR~ Lord especially, douchebag will be removed from access. This may change if his status changes.
trinque: mod6: since his remedy involves access to a place to post the report, I'll give it until the end of the day, which is ample time to get a blog up and a post (even incomplete, so what) up.
trinque: !!unrate douchebag

mod6: Well... see, this is not really how it should be. Don't let ole mod6 talk ya down.
trinque: douchebag: tomorrow comes and no post, negrated and that's that.
mod6: Tomorrow is in like what... 6 hours? Or you mean CDT?
trinque: mod6: the example's illustrated for logs, and now e can discuss it
trinque: mod6: means from where my butt sits, if it's tomorrow, I pull the trigger. so get crackin
mod6: Alright, sounds good trinque.
douchebag: I need to get a domain now, and get mpwp setup
douchebag: right now, I just threw that up so that I have something at least
mod6: lol, looks like v worked 'eh?
douchebag: No, I'm trying to figure out what I'm doing wrong right now
mod6: What is it complainig about? Btw, I'm not sure that this projct even works with my version of V.
lobbes: re wot: I mean, the serenity of leveraging the wot, imho, is that it is a purely individual-to-individual thing by design. In this case, you have Pizarro (P) who has customer relationships with MP and D. D has been negrated by T on the basis of Tx. MP can either decide 1) Tx means enough to request P get rid of D, in which case P now determines if it values MP or D moar, or 2) MP decides Tx does not mean enough to request P get rid of D.

danielpbarron: i also have him at -1 for mouthing off to me in the eftard channel
mod6: and further, not even sure why you need a domain. (unless for some reason wp-mp doesn't work without one)
trinque cares not; phf had just an IP for a long while
douchebag: If I'm going to run a blog, wouldn't it make sense to have a domain name that's easy to remember?
mod6: Depends on the audience maybe.
trinque: and douchebag, sounds like you have another lord from whom to ask forgiveness; pizarro account is still in peril
trinque: if danielpbarron has negrated
mod6: !!reputation douchebag
trinque: hm, ben_vulpes also
mod6: and esthlos
danielpbarron: looks like mp and lobbes more than balance it out though. +2 from each
mod6: true, but "any lord".
trinque: the rule is any lord.
danielpbarron: hm, ok
mod6: fwiw, i didn't even know ben_vulpes neg'd him :D
trinque: this is a pretty shitty reputation all around.
mod6: well, i probably saw at one point, but forgot o.O
danielpbarron: i'm not married to the rating, will consider arguments
douchebag: danielpbarron: what's the exact reason you negrated me?
danielpbarron: you're a douchebag
douchebag: that's my name
mod6: I would say, focus on trinque's task list. Then read back on the other neg ratings given and see if some repair can be done to your wot-status.
mod6: I'll be around for a bit if you need some help with v.pl.
danielpbarron: i don't know exacts, but you were talking back to me over in lrh around the same time you were polluting snr in here, and my +1 was preventing others from !!downing you
mod6: mother of god.
mod6: ok try this: ./v.pl f pd mpwp
mod6: see what it tells you
douchebag: it ran the command, no output. going to try verbose
mod6: crud, one sec. im guessing you have a separate .seals dir for the mpwp vpatch too right?
mod6: cause you will need that.
douchebag: no, i'll create that right now
mod6: then the command would be like: ./v.pl f pd mpwp sd .mpwp-seals

douchebag: okay, I think it's working! yay
mod6: yeah, my v doesn't work with that thing.
mod6: this is what brought on the whole thing about phf doing his v stuffs or whatever.
mod6: hanbot: how are you currently pressing mpwp, what tools should douchebag use for this?
mod6: so douchebag: nope that's not working, if it fails like that, just blow away your press dir, whatever is there is no good.
mod6: in a pinch -- you could always try to just : `patch -F 0 -E -p1 < mp-wp_genesis.vpatch` in some directory and just inflate the thing.
mod6: but this is strictly un-republican, and un-verified.
mod6: 'heathen-istic method'
lobbes: mod6: re pizarro wot policy: so you're saying positive lordly ratings do not cancel out negative lordly ratings? i.e. rule is simply: "any lordly negrate disualifies?"
mod6: Read that log post that I pasted above. That is the current rule.
diana_coman: lobbes, there is no positive cancels negative; for starters, it's not a sum
mod6: douchebag: scroll up, said somethings, or just check the log
diana_coman: mod6, my reading is that pizarro does business with mp here though, not with douchebag
lobbes: diana_coman: ah okay. gotcha
BingoBoingo: If I recall it was MP that rented the rockchip for douchebag.
mod6: This is overall dubious then. If someone scams me, and I neg-rate them, but their mircea_popescu's person in question, then what?
diana_coman: then you go and talk to mircea_popescu , yes
diana_coman: what does otherwise "it's mircea_popescu's person" mean?
mod6: Pizarro shall follow the rule and remove access to that scammer. Simple as that.
diana_coman: well yes, but first and foremost: what does it meant then "it's X's person"?
BingoBoingo: mod6: But in the case the negrated fellow isn't leasing the chip. MP is.
mod6: This is all why this discussion is needed. Because it's a pretty inflexible rule, as it stands.
mod6: diana_coman: i simply mean, mircea_popescu rented the thing for the guy. 'tis all.
BingoBoingo: If you have been disenfranchised, the case is that yes, you have to have others do thing for you because you can't (MP in the case of leasing the rockchip douchebag uses)
mod6: could have been you, renting it for person X. Person X is under your wing, so to speak.
BingoBoingo: <mod6> diana_coman: i simply mean, mircea_popescu rented the thing for the guy. 'tis all. << MP rented the thing because the guy can't

lobbes: makes sense
mod6: So, what we're saying then is, if someone rents a box for someone else, and that someone else gets neg-rated, then it's up to the renter to figure it out? What if the renter says, "hey fuck what pizarro and its customers think". Does Pizarro not have a say in it's own customer usage then?
diana_coman: mod6, you do have a say; but you have your say with the one paying for the box!

a111: Logged on 2018-05-20 18:03 trinque: I think "nobody does business with any L1-negrated party" is a bit strict. folks need to be able to beat someone over the head with disapproval without removing their ability to take part in society by having done so.
a111: Logged on 2018-04-19 01:36 mircea_popescu: ascii_lander, it's not a firm "no trading with bozos" ; seems to me you appreciate the distinction between selling an item and selling hosting in other contexts. people that are willing to take your cash payment upfront for a piece of hard candy might nevertheless not agree to rent you their garage.
a111: Logged on 2018-05-03 18:30 mircea_popescu: but logically, would you really want to rent your garage to anyone ANY of your friends think is no good ?
mircea_popescu: but if you're looking for actionable practicalia, you could do something like, "well, we'll consider the matter whenever it becomes salient. such as when someone complains ; or when issuing invoices. we just won't invoice people with neg ratings, and they can sort it out."
mircea_popescu: should be low effort enough.
mod6: mircea_popescu: ah, thanks for the quick responses here.
mircea_popescu: hanbot, haha, a case of ymmv huh.
mod6: I think that may be a workable solution.
hanbot: yeah. in short, i'm not averse to trying, and now and then do dive in the soup to see. i pretty much emerge with piss variously lodged in my eyesockets and zero pearls.

mircea_popescu: being inept (and by inept we mean, exactly wrong), nobody could ever make it in.
mircea_popescu: in other words : providing someone being punished for weaselbehaviour with a specified mechanism to weasel further helps them by removing the ~defining~ of the weaselbehaviour from their hands, which is the first step towards becoming sane already.

mod6: lol, "if it were not for your ``friends'' I would think that this was a normal chat site"
