I tried. I swear it, really, I tried to ignore this. The good thing of having blocked by a user is that one can live in serenity, ignoring and not seeing or reading anymore such of things. But, damn, today I've reset my browser settings at work, and had a tour on DA groups without having logged in. Having not logged in, this way I saw for the first time a "meme" about PMX Locker, and how BAAAAAAAD is to unlock "locked" PMX files.
I won't go on, repeating one more time my position about a kind of "lock" that absolutely doesn't lock anything. You can find what I've written here, if you're interested in this matter:
1. "How to FIX pmx files corrupted by PMX locker" (my first study about PMX locker works and how to restore invalidated files)
2. "Locking files? No: corrupting them" (a deeper study about the techique used to invalidate pmx files and the malfuctions this causes on other people's pcs)
3. "PMX locking, ZIP/RAR passwords..." (some suggestions on how to better protect our works if we need them to be used by certain users only)
If you are not interested in, or if you trust in that funny but problematic "TL;DR" (too long; didn't read), here is a short resume about my opinions:
1) PMX locker doesn't lock absolutely anything
. It invalidates the standard PMX file format adding a dirty characted on the header file definition.
2) Any sly user can easely remove such of "locking" without need of any obscure hacking programs or skills
, just opening it with an advanced text editor or a hex editor
3) Invalidated PMX files cause malfunctions on other people's PCs
: LAG when used in MMD, and malfunctions when used in MMM or Blender, as they don't recognize them as valid files
4) If you're yourself an editor, who used free-to-use parts to make your models, you have NO rights to deny further edits nor to "lock" anything
5) You've no right to limit users to load a model in MMM or Blender
, if they prefer these programs to make their animations and renderings
6) You encourage dishonest people in offering their "pay to unlock" services
to unexpert and ingenuous MMD users
7) Annoying people with lag, malfunctions and illicit limitations you encourage people in completely bypassing your rules
instead of teaching to respect them
Well. there were my opinions. You have your ones. World is large enough for all
But I cannot bypass what I've read today (months after this "supposed to be an educative meme" has been published):
Okay, okay... it seems just a meme, isn't it? Go, read it deeper....
WHAT I FIND REALLY DISAPPOINTING IN THIS MEME
The following MMD users have been "blacklisted" and depicted, all around 50 MMD groups, as if they were criminals or rulebreakers
. I don't need anyone to defend or represent me
, rhank you but I do this by myself. But I definitely find stupid that most of the people listed below have no other "guilty" than having answered with a comment on my journals
, and for this reason they have been depicted over the MMD communities as if they were criminals and rulebreakers
This is a vile, petty, and coward defaming proscription list against a lot of people.
Despite what this self-nominated super-gestapo-cop of the MMDC says about "I'M ONLY TRYING TO HELP"
(help doing WHAT exactly?
), take a look at the TAGS he has chosen for his "educative meme":
and of course my own name
, as I'm evidently the Dark Lord of Evil
After that, he added a thousand of random but most used MMD tags
to be sure this stupid meme would have been listed on the more large as possible number of search results.
Does this sound "odd" only to me, while this should be a "just to inform"
I don't care at all if this user has decided to block me
, at least this way he stopped spamming, harassing and annoying any people who answers or comment my journals and my artworks.
But all of these other peoples, listed below, have been depicted as criminals, as undesirable, as people to block-blacklist
What I really find coward and hypocritical is that this user neither had the courage to declare his real purposes, as he's saying "My intention is not to harm, but to inform", but he have hidden those "blacklist" and "blocklist" keyword in his tags before spreading and spamming this supposed-to-be-an-educative-meme all around FIFTY MMD groups
Also note that most of them are listed with the question mark
(?) as their only "crime" is having expressed their opinion about PMX Locker
. The only fact that a user like vasilnatalie (a nice, kind and calm person who ever spends a lot of his sparetime helping other people in learning how to model, how to use MMD's and PMX Editor's advanced features, has been included in this vile blacklist/blocklist, is the final evidence of what kind of stupid medieval persecution is this one
Senator McCarthy and Torquemada couldn't have done this "better" than how Rina55
did.I must invite ANY MMD Group administrator to remove this vile and defaming campaign from their galleries and to never host again such of medieval witch hunts
Also note the lie. He marked me with both "!!!"
(distributing Pmx locker) and the "*"
harassed him).The first lie is that I distribute absolutely nothing
. No PMX unlocker
, nor programs to "unlock" (I prefer to say "restore" original and valit PMX files from a corrupted one).
I've just published a not-so-deep study about how PMX Locker works, i.e. invalidating the standard PMX file format, by adding a dirty character in the file header definitions, which not only causes that the file cannot be edited in PMX Editor, but also that the corrupted file will cause LAG when used in MMD, and severe malfunctions if you try to use that model for making animations and artworks in MMM (Miku Miku Moving) or Blender.
That's all. Of course I also expressed my personal opinions about The second lie is the one about having continuosuly harassed him
. Just take a zoo-tour on his artworks, journals, profile. You'll find NOTHING written by me
. Not a post, not a whine, not a comment, not... anything. Then take a look on mine. You'll find all of his spamming and trolling comments
, some of them simply insulting me and other people who just were commenting my journals. Take your own conclusions about who's harassing who
Also, please, note that this user depicts himself as being "harassed" by me and other people (those marked with the "*")
. I had marked as spam, and hidden most of his spamming and trolling comments on my journals, but I've decided to make them visible again, so you can make by yourself a precise idea about who's harassing who
. And about his idea about "a mature comment"
. Also tale a look on Primpri
's journals (try this, first: PMX Unlocker
), and just see how this user habit is to spam and troll, copy&pasting always the same messages, harassing and annoying any people who dares to comment primpri's post
. It's interesting that this user depicts himself as "having been harassed
", isn't it?
Just a few examples of what this user considers as "having been harassed"
Really I have no more to say. I'm familiar, unfortunately, with this kind of psycho-dramas, and personally I have no troubles when my name only is (ab)used
It just enter my left ear and goes out from the right one. But depicting this way a full list of other people, just because they dared to express their opinions, or just because they have left a comment on a journal, is just depressing
. More depressing that witch hunts like this one find terrain to grow in, with fifty groups having given a stage for this squallid try to compile and diffuse a list of most wanted MMD criminals
I usually hate the expression "get a life" but in this case I make it mine: get a life, guys.
MMD should be an amazing hobby, not such of a massacre field.
I'd like to ask some MMD group admins, in particular the ones pretending to act as if they were a kind of MMDC police, if they don't see, this way, defaming a bunch of people and giving away such of squallid proscription blacklists, they're acting as the Gestapo more than a civil police.
