Carl Paladino, Sending Smiles

24 Apr

Carl Paladino just wanted to send you a smile and let you know he’s been thinking of you…according to his latest electronic missive.

In his email to undisclosed recipients (at least he’s learning), he sent some horrible parable about heaven and hell (see, he IS a religious guy, conservatives) followed up with the following explanation about why he loves forwarding emails to hundreds of people indiscriminately.

From: Carl Paladino [mailto:CPaladino@ellicottdevelopment.com]
Sent: Sat 4/24/2010 4:31 PM
To: undisclosed-recipients
Subject: FW: This explains why I forward jokes, and it says it all

Soooo. Now you see, sometimes, we wonder why friends keep forwarding stuff to us without writing a word.  Maybe this will explain it.

When you  are very busy, but still want to keep in touch, guess what you do?   You forward mails.  When you have nothing to say, but still want to keep contact, you forward jokes.  When you have something to say, but don’t know what, and don’t know how…you forward stuff.  A ‘forward’ lets you know that you are still remembered, you are still important, you are still  loved, you are still cared for.

So, next time you get a ‘forward’, don’t think that you’ve been sent just another forwarded joke, but that you’ve been thought of today and your friend on the other end of your computer wanted to send you a smile.

I’m glad Carl has taken the liberty of making it so crystal clear!  He’s just thinking of his hundreds of acquaintances in the public sector, media and business community when he forwards jokes!  Why didn’t he just say so?  Boy, don’t we liberal media elites have a lot of egg on our face!  I guess this kind of honesty is why he’s paying Michael Caputo to poke reporters in the chest and do the worst public relations/image repair job in political history.

Let me try and put Carl’s email explanation in context for you.  Here’s how the email should have read:

From: Carl Paladino [mailto:CPaladino@ellicottdevelopment.com]
Not Actually Sent: Sat 4/24/2010 4:31 PM
To: undisclosed-recipients
Subject: FW: This explains why I forward jokes, and it says it all

Soooo. Now you see, sometimes, we wonder why friends keep forwarding stuff to us without writing a word.  Maybe this will explain it.

When you  are very busy, but still want to keep in touch, guess what you do?   You forward videos of a horse performing anal sex to completion on a woman.

When you have nothing to say, but still want to keep contact, you forward racist images of black people facing death!

When you have something to say, but don’t know what, and don’t know how…you forward a racist picture of the President dressed as a pimp and the first lady dressed up like a whore.

A ‘forward’ lets you know that you are still remembered, you are still important, you are still  loved, you are still cared for and by the way, you need to see this video of a woman deepthroating a sausage!  It’s awesome!  Hey, hope all is well with the wife and kids, here’s a video I saw on Stormfront of Obama getting ready for the inaugural ball.

So, next time you get a ‘forward’, don’t think that you’ve been sent just another forwarded joke, but that you’ve been thought of today and your friend on the other end of your computer wanted to send you a horrific racist image or illegal porn video!

Paladino Links

13 Apr

Just a collection of the incoming links to WNYMedia.net, the Carl Paladino horse porn/racism imbroglio, and an update on the stats and technical reasons the site was down on Monday afternoon and evening.

The current design and technical infrastructure of WNYMedia.net was architected by Chris Van Patten and Jacob Peddicord, two young and very talented developers.  After we published the Carl Paladino email story, we immediately noticed an uptick in traffic which escalated to nearly 2 Million site visits by 12PM.  We expected the story would be linked by regional and statewide websites/media outlets and planned for an uptick of 40-50% over our daily traffic.  I made some server and cache changes to prepare, but what happened totally blew me away.  However, the site Chris and Jacob designed scaled and handled all of the traffic.  Then, shortly after noon, we experienced a massive Distributed Denial-of-Service (DDos) attack.  What’s a DDos attack?

A distributed denial-of-service attack (DDoS attack) is an attempt to make a computer resource unavailable to its intended users. Although the means to carry out, motives for, and targets of a DoS attack may vary, it generally consists of the concerted efforts of a person or people to prevent an Internet site or service from functioning efficiently or at all, temporarily or indefinitely.

One common method of attack involves saturating the target (victim) machine with external communications requests, such that it cannot respond to legitimate traffic, or responds so slowly as to be rendered effectively unavailable. In general terms, DoS attacks are implemented by either forcing the targeted computer(s) to reset, or consuming its resources so that it can no longer provide its intended service or obstructing the communication media between the intended users and the victim so that they can no longer communicate adequately.

The first wave was a ping storm, a distributed flurry of simple network requests which blocked legitimate access to our server.  Once I solved that problem, the site came back up, slowly, for about an hour.  Then, the DDoS tactics changed and we were down again for the remainder of the evening while I worked with our host to figure out how to permanently implement a solution.

This is already long and boring, so I’ll leave it there.  And no, we’re not claiming, alleging, or accusing that anyone involved with Carl Paladino, the local tea party, or other related interest groups had anything to do with it.  I don’t know who did, nor do I care.  It happened and I just wanted to explain why.

Over the next couple of days, your comments will appear more slowly on the site as Chris Van Patten and I implemented some additional measures to reduce comment spam and maintain a steady load on our databse servers.  We’re not moderating your comments for content, we’re just trying to keep the site up.

As of 7PM tonight, we had received over 4 Million visits to the website with links from over 1000 news websites and blogs.

Here’s a short list of links to the Paladino story…
