general non-furry discussion / Re: Fake Videos, for fun or to harm.
« Last post by Jade Sinapu on April 19, 2018, 11:32:12 am »
If it is super realistic im not sure how I could determine if it is indeed fake.
Sure would be easy to ruin somebody with just the right video at the right time.
Would there have too be an agreed upon way to embed digital fingerprints into videos? And a way to let us all verify them?  I know that some Adobe documents can be set to verify externally before opening.

I know my DSLR can embed a digital signature into my photos,  which can be damaged from editing.   
But that required an expensive license and software I think so I never went that route.

I bet fake videos are out there. Not just for fun either.
Too easy now

President Trump claims he has been tougher on Russia
than any other president. Well I guess he forgot about
president Reagan. Or almost any other president since
WWII. Trump has going out of his way to treat Russia
with kid gloves, and still refuses to implement the
sanctions congress passed with a overwhelming majority.

Trump claims he will implement the sanctions when Russia
deserves them. Trump would have removed all sanctions
from Russia when he first took office, but congress stopped
him. Trump still doesn't want to give Russa credit for messing
with the 2016 election. Seems he wants to think he was 
elected all on his own. Well if it wasn't for the antiquated
electoral process he would have lost by 3 million votes.

Cuba has a new president. After almost 60 years of rule
by Castro and his brother. Nothing is changing thought
the so called communist government will continue to control
how the country is run.

Leaders of communist governments claim they are against free
markets and capitalism. Yet they live with all the advantages of
a capitalistic country while the majority of the people living under
a feudal system much as people did in the middle ages.

Technology is nearing the ability to create fake videos
that look like the real thing.

Will hackers use them trying to ruin a politician? Or
to show a famous person in a bad light?

I imagine in many cases it will be mostly for fun, but
hopefully there will be a way to expose them for what
they are. Even if those who post them don't mention
it's a fake. As is it would be difficult for You Tube to
review every video to see fake edits.

There is software in work that will detect most edits in
videos. Still most people won't be looking for edits. If
when you watch a video and see or hear the person of
interest say or do something out of character it's likely
a fake video.

Thank you Varg the wanderer, and Old Rabbit! I'll be sure to respond to the questions to break the ice!

Mind telling us how you happened upon our friendly community?
I searched on google for 'furry forum' and furtopia and furaffinity were the two most popular links -- so I went ahead and signed myself up!

How long have you been a furry / known about the fandom?
Oh man.. well, I started hanging around forums and having characters with animalistic features from 12/13. They always had something! Tail(s), wings, you name it! I've never gone to a furry convention, though. I've somewhat kept up with everything for the last 15 years.

Do you have a fursona? If so, what is it?
I do! Or, I should say I did. I haven't made her itteration in a long time. She was a lamb/succubus and she was very dear to me, but as I've grown up I feel like I've grown out of her too. This is her headshot from awhile ago.

What interests you about the anthropomorphic (furry) fandom?
I like the freedom. I like the expression. I believe we all have something in us that reminds us of our animalistic behaviors and some of us just choose to identify a little more firmly with them. Animals cannot deny who they are, they have behaviors that are unique to their species through learned and evolved behaviors. Sometimes associating with those behaviors can help come to terms with yourself and understand you are who you are for reasons. That's why, although I do not fully identify as a furry, I do believe that I have the soul and spirit of many animals with me -- from my reincarnations or otherwise, and this time around I just happened to be placed into the body of a human!

It appears Trumps meeting with the N Korea leader is on track. Tim
will tell how it goes when they actually meet. Trump claims to be a
great negotiator, but from what I have seen Trump seems to be weak
when he meets strong leaders.  Trump is a big man on twitter or in
front of a friendly audience, but not so sure of his self among people
like Putin or the leader of China.

Not to say he should act like a bully, but stand up for what he believes.
People may not agree, but they usually respect others who stand up for
them selves. If Trump flip flops around they will try to control him.

Trump met with Japans leader, who was disturbed by the singular meetings
with N Korea. Trump needs to work with our allies in the region or we
harm relations with a deal that doesn't adress their concerns.
Trump has been president for over 14 months and he doesn't seem
to have any real plans or policies. He seems to fear loosing support of
the far right. Each time he hears a complaint from them he backs
up and follows their lead. Trump is more of a follower than a leader.

Hopefully he doesn't let the N Korean l eader talk him into a bad
deal. I am sure Trump would love to return and talk about a great
deal he made. No matter how bad it might be. It's likely the N Korean
leader will promise a lot, but will he follow it up? In the past they have
made promises then broke them later. We need people in N Korea to
see that they do keep their promises. If they block inspections of
their nuke and missile program, there would be no way to verify
their claims.

Hello Efurrybody!

It's a pleasure to make your acquaintances. My name is Ramona, though I rarely go by it -- my friends and relatives call me Ram (like ROM), or Ramon (RAH-Mohn), and I've been going by Rammy online for a very long time. When I was younger and in mypreteen/early teenage years, I frequented Furcadia and met really wonderful friends (whom, sadly I didn't stay in touch with), and as I grew up I became more frequently involved in the art community. Unfortunately, because of stresses and other dumb adult stuff, I completely blocked myself off from the community and the internet hahahah.

Thankfully, I'm back, and I want to integrate myself in again, produce some more art, maybe even get commissions to support my extracurriculars! (Please read, the gym, and maybe video games).

My fursona originally was a little lamb, short, bright fuschia pink hair with blonde and blue highlights and a cute red ribbon around her neck. Buuuuut that was 2003-2010.

Now, I'm not sure! I identify much more with strong animals, like oxen or bears, but I love flight and believe very much that barn owls are my spirit animal. So *SHRUGS* maybe I'm a winged sun bear.

EITHER WAY. It's really exciting stepping into everything again. I may lurk and take some time to spread my wings (haha) but please don't take my timidness the wrong way!

President Trump continues to throw his own people under the
bus so to speak. His ambassador to the United Nations had said
there were more sanctions to be placed on Russia. Then Trump
turns about and contradicts her to say there are enough sanctions
onRussia and had no plans to add more.

It's no wonder why there are few if any good people in Trumps
administration. What experienced person would want to risk
their reputation working for someone like Trump?

GOP House GOP members continue to resign. I wonder how
many will be running for election this fall. Only time will tell.
