From reading the material in post #177 apparently there is some sort of Folding@Home thing for helping to copy and archive Parler stuff? How do we get in? I'd love to do what I can to help protect the USA.
While I appreciate what they did on one level as I think it will help the country better understand the sickness going on here it also sure sounds like a crime to me, so probably best to stay away.

There are two things floating around about this and only one is verified AFAIK.

A) Security Researcher Copied all the publicly available posts on the public web interface using a normal user account. It would be like if I web crawled this forum and copied all the message that anyone here can read. No crime in that.

B) Real hacker compromised everything hacked in and setup Admin accounts, has all the ID verification of every poster, including drivers license, and social security they used to verify themselves, all the private communications, and deleted messages.

A) is verified to happen, and is not a crime. Still juicy info, but no primate messages, and no drivers licenses.
B) is not verified, and would be a crime. This one may be trolling the Parler users to make them nervous about what they posted.

Parler Data mapping locations of Media uploaded to Parler after the Attack but before it was taken offline:

It will be sparse because Parler went down before a lot of people probably had a chance to upload their "trophies", but they made these nifty maps. But that's a small taste of the Phone records to follow, they will have tracked all the phones. While this is only the people who shot videos/pictures and uploaded before the demise of Parler.

I'm not a fan of heavy handed policing but it would be hard to argue against the police opening fire there.

They retreated back from the crowd. Tried to defend a position with minimal force, then one of them got dragged out and beaten to death in front of them.
Trump needs to be impeached and prevented from ever holding office again.

Yeah, that content is indefensible. Damn them assholes.
The had a contract with Terms of Service. That crap violated TOS, so Amazon was completely free to end their service, as per the contract. It's case closed

Parler can't win. They are only bringing this lawsuit for more public whining that everyone is against conservatives.

Apparently Trump tried to join Parler and Gab but his aides stopped him.

That's really too bad, he probably would have wrote much that was incrementing basking in the adulation of the Nazi-Cesspool echo chamber.
