Protests against Charlie Hebdo's front cover have seen thousands more take to the streets - with students in Somalia declaring 'Je Suis Muslim - and I love my Prophet'.
Students marched through Mogadishu on Saturday morning, three days after the commemorative edition of the satirical magazine went on sale.
The magazine features a cartoon of the Prophet Mohamed shedding a tear underneath the words 'All is forgiven', after 12 of Charlie Hebdo's staff were killed in a massacre earlier this month.
But the use of the Prophets image has angered many Muslims around the world, with protests taking place from Somalia to Niger, and Pakistan to Jordan.
Is Cameron really planning on ‘banning’ Snapchat?
Is this true or just another hoax to get himself re-elected?
Let’s be clear about what Prime Minister David Cameron said: he doesn’t want any wrongdoers to be able to communicate in a way that UK intelligence agencies can’t access. That’s NOT THE SAME as banning any encrypted communications. Here’s why:
Let’s imagine jihadis use Snapchat (a service which allows users to send each other encrypted messages which then “self-destruct” on the recipient’s phone and apparently on Snapchat’s servers too).
If you’re the UK government and you want access to that jihadi’s messages you’ve got three options:
1. Ask Snapchat to keep copies of the messages of a particular user, and allow UK law enforcement access to the unencrypted file
2. Use brute force to unscramble the message as it passes from one jihadi to another via UK internet infrastructure
3. Agree with Snapchat that you’re going to keep a “master key” somewhere that will allow law enforcement to unscramble the messages (but, for example, only after informing Snapchat).
The problem with option 1 is that it relies on Snapchat’s approval, and UK law enforcement don’t like that.
The problem with option 2 is that it’s time consuming and costly.
Option 3 sounds tempting: until you realise that if the UK gets access to the skeleton key, there’ll be a queue of other countries lining up for the same access, including Russia, China, Turkmenistan, Kazakhstan….
So what if Snapchat et al refuse to play ball? Can Cameron “ban Snapchat?” How exactly will David Cameron banish such services from the nation’s phones? Just one of the gaping holes in this unfolding story.
This is as much about UK’s power in the world as anything else. The vast majority of successful tech companies are based in the US. American law enforcement has far less trouble accessing them than UK agencies. So as a result of our lack of tech prowess, British politicians must go cap in hand to the US to ask for access.
Finally, after what may seem a long wait is now finally over and with NulledBB BOOSTING with activity, we can say for ourselves this is really good news.
As you can see here, traffic is really high on the Forum and we hope, well I hope this gets increasingly higher as more people join the community and with the Owner being over whelmed at the traffic as it is, is it safe to say he may just explode with all the over whelming traffic as the Forum goes on? Who knows?
With the forum reaching already up to 1100 posts, this may rise up as the Forum progresses on and then just exploding all over, is this possibly the low point of NulledBB compared to the Future as the traffic increases?
Read the interview with Linkz here
Mat: Hello, Linkz. Thank you for allowing me to interview you.
Mat: What was your first thoughts on re-opening the NulledBB Community?
Linkz: It felt good to see the forum online again.
It was such a boring time without the forum.
I got enough to do besides working, but I missed spending a lot of free time on the forum.
Mat: Did you ever have any regrets in the previous / return of NulledBB?
Such as things you were unsure of.
Linkz: The only thing I regret was the merge of forumcamp with nulledbb. I didn't have time for both communities sadly, so I made the decision to merge them. And I actually didn't think about it long enough. I made the decision within some hours.
Other than that, I don't regret anything.
Mat: Are you happy with how NulledBB is going so far?
Linkz: I had to upgrade the server after a day cause of the high activity. I didn't expect that but I'm more than happy about it.
Mat: What are your hopes for NulledBB in let's say, 6 weeks?
Linkz: Hitting the 10,000 post milestone.
Mat: That sounds really good but I'm sure our great community can topple that easily,
Linkz: Hopefully it'll stay like this. I love working my ass off for it.
Mat: Thank you for allowing me to interview you Linkz, it was a pleasure and I'm sure the Community will love to read this.
Linkz: You're welcome. Thanks for the interest in interviewing me. Have a good day.
Mat: You too! And of course, thank you for sparing a few minutes to take this quick interview, as I understand you are very busy, so on behalf of the Community, we all thank you for dedicating so much time for us all.
