7 Millionaire Marxist Myths Debunked

2019.11.11 10:00 FaceInTheSandpit 7 Millionaire Marxist Myths Debunked

On Twitter and Reddit recently, I've seen a lot of bad faith arguments posted by people who probably aren't bots and will be voting in the general election next month, about how Corbyn is actually a secret millionaire; meaning he is a filthy hypocrite, which is seemingly the absolute worst thing one can be.
Jonathan Swift wrote in 1710 that “Falsehood flies, and the Truth comes limping after it, so that when Men come to be undeceiv’d, it is too late”, but I hope some people can be reasoned out of these myths on the doorstep or online in the next month.
This is a list of the claims I've encountered nominally normal people using: where they come from, how they spread around the right-wing press, and I attempt to debunk with easily available evidence.
Sorry about the length.
1.) Corbyn is worth MILLIONS!
On Friday 8th November, the Express posted this article claiming Corbyn is worth £3m, a rehash of an article they posted in April; itself a version of these articles posted in the Mail and Telegraph in 2016.
All of these articles cite earlier versions of this page from Spears Magazine website, which claims Corbyn has a "net worth" £3m. Spears claims that "net worth content is calculated by applying a proprietary algorithm and is fact checked by our team of editors. We scan publicly available data and resources to ensure all our net worth data is the most accurate and up to date content on the Internet."
The article mentions nothing that would illustrate Corbyn's apparent £3m current net worth: nothing about property, stocks, royalties, classic cars. Absolutely nothing. There is no methodology available, and the author (Rebecca Cameron) has no contact details or social profiles that I could find. I've used the Wayback Machine, and found that over all 14 iterations of the page cached between late 2017 and today, the text hasn't changed; while seemingly random amounts have been added or subtracted to keep it around the "£3m" figure.
The article does mention that Corbyn has "claimed over £3m from the state alone" after going into how his salary has increased since 1983. It also claims this is "£1.5 million more than a normal MP", without going into any detail about what a "normal MP" is.
I added up the historic wages of an MP since 1983, and it comes out to £1.7m. Now, while it's technically true that £3m is almost £1.5m more than £1.7m, Corbyn's total salaries have only added up to just over £2m over 36 years, including time as Leader of the Opposition.
I assume they have guesstimated the length of service of a "normal MP" as maybe 2 parliaments, and compared it to the 11th longest serving MP currently in the House. Very sound methodology.
They’re still a million off, though, even after assuming he saved every single penny; but maybe Corbyn has made clever savings and investments to make up the difference?
Corbyn has published his tax returns on his website since April 2016, which show very little in additional income. He receives no dividends and has no alternate employment. The £78 in interest on a high street savings account suggest a bank account of about £8,000. He receives a standard state pension, and his pension from the short time he spent as a union organiser. His only other income was £1,200 as "self-employed", which I assume was for speaking engagements or similar.
These are not the tax returns of someone with millions in the bank, massive investment portfolios or property income. They're the tax returns of someone who earns a top 5% salary after nearly four decades of public service, receives a state pension, pays all his taxes and gives between 2 and 5 percent of his annual income to charity, based on gift-aid receipts.
2.) He's like all the other MPs: just in it for the Gravy Train!
This is included because the Spears article is either slightly carelessly or very carefully worded, by using "claimed" instead of "earned". This leaves the door open to add MP’s expenses to the total.
Again, I did the maths, using the IPSA data set up in the wake of the expenses scandal. Including staffing and travel costs, Corbyn has definitely claimed more than £3m. Since 2010 - he has claimed almost £1.2m in expenses. But, this is very similar to other MPs, such as his staunchest ex-Labour critic The Independent Group For Change’s Chris Leslie (~£1.3m) and Conservative back bencher John Baron (~£1.2m), although much higher than Jacob Rees-Mogg (~£882k).
In 2017-18, specifically, Corbyn claimed £176,868; which is slightly higher than the average of £168,251 for all MPs, probably due to increased costs in London.
Without staffing costs, he's pretty cheap: having claimed only £151k in 10 years, compared to Leslie (£245k) and Baron (£166k), although, again, Rees-Mogg has only claimed £16k in non-staffing expense (possibly because his constituency office is seemingly registered as the dodgiest looking alleyway in all Somerset).
I even went back to 1983, guesstimating Corbyn's historical office spend using the inflation-adjusted version of the average from the 2010-18 period; which came out to only £453,180 over 36 years.
So, no. Corbyn hasn't claimed significantly more or less than average, and including his office spend over his entire career wouldn't even increase the totalled earnings to £3m.
For reference, Spears magazine itself was founded and is majority owned by Willliam Cash#Personal_life), one-time UKIP candidate and now hardline Conservative supporter, the son of veteran Eurosceptic MP and solicitor Sir Bill Cash, himself of the top scammers of the expenses scandal. It could be that they are not entirely impartial.
3.) Corbyn has a £1.6m pension!
This is, again, mentioned in the Spears page; but no detail is given. The Telegraph does go into more detail, providing an estimate from Tom McPhail, a senior pensions researcher at Hargreaves Lansdown, to look into the scale of Corbyn's pension, who reached the conclusion that it was " gold-plated pension which will pay out almost £50,000 a year".
That's an amazing pension, but our boy is already 70. The average life expectancy for a chap in Islington is just shy of 78 years old. Because of his cycling, relatively healthy lifestyle and childhood in semi-rural Shropshire, we can hope that Corbyn will live longer, but even if he gets to a solid 90; he's only going to get £1m of his pension.
Where's the other £600k? Well, the valuation was done by Hargreaves Lansdown based on the 2016 market value of buying into the funds used by the MPs pension scheme. This is, firstly, impossible for a random person to do completely, and secondly wouldn't take into account the historical ups and downs of the funds or previous portfolios of the scheme.
Completely coincidentally, at the time, Peter Hargreaves, founder and majority shareholder of Hargreaves Lansdown, had just donated £3.2m to Arron Banks' Leave.EU campaign while “pining” for Thatcher.
4.) Corbyn's house is worth millions!
Again, the Express and Mail are mostly guilty here. In late 2016, the house next door to Corbyn's went on sale for £925,000; causing a tabloid frenzy. If you look carefully and think about it very hard, you’ll notice that £925,000 isn’t actually over a million pounds.
The implication that Corbyn's house is going to be worth anything like as much of his neighbours is just plain misleading: the house next door underwent a £120,000 complete redesign and extension by award-winning architects Archmongers LLC in 2014, the owners having bought it for £395,000 in 2013. There was one sale on his street that topped £1m since, in 2019, but this was of a much larger, much classier Victorian terrace at the nicer end of the street.
The previous sale of Corbyn's house, presumably when he bought it, was for £363,000 in Spring 2007, just months before the international mortgage bubble burst, sending property values tumbling by tens of thousands, which took 6-8 years to go back to the pre-2007 values, as evidenced by the sale of the next door house for a similar amount.
It appears from Rightmove that most of the similar houses on his street have been converted into flats, and they are still going for about £400k, suggesting Corbyn's gaff probably wouldn't be worth much more than £800k unless it had some serious work done to it.
5.) Corbyn owns a second home in the countryside!
No. He doesn't. He has no other property listed as over £100,000 or providing £10,000+ rental income on the MP's Register of Interest. If he did own a second home, it's dirt cheap and/or he rents it out at far below market value. If he actually owned a second home, the Mail would be all over it.
For reference, Boris Johnson has just sold his £3.75m house, also in Islington, as well as owning 20% share of a property in Somerset and a 50% share of another house in London.
I have seen someone image search "Corbyn 2nd Home" and screenshot it to proudly present to me as 'evidence' which showed three pictures, each with the headlines "Corbyn's childhood country home..." below.
6.) So Corbyn is actually posh! He inherited wealth!
This an argument taken from a Telegraph article in 2015, where Corbyn is described as "to the manor born", growing up in an apparently posh rural idyll. A lot of the detail provided in this article, and the ones that spawned from it, have been taken from Corbyn's elder brother Piers Corbyn.
Piers appears very much the black sheep of the family; a 'metereologist', who has apparently developed his own solar-based climate prediction system, which is not peer reviewed, for predicting weather patterns, and denies the IPCC climate report on action against climate change.
Going even further, Piers denies anthropogenic climate change as a whole - claiming that CO2 is "the Life Gas" on his website, WeatherAction; which makes just slightly more sense than TimeCube. While he appears to be a terrible scientist, he seemingly much better at self-aggrandisement.
One detail not provided by Piers that would be publicly verifiable would be the that when Corbyn's mother died in 1987, her estate was valued at "almost £250,000". After inflation, this is the equivalent of £690,000. For reference, this would only have barely met the current threshold for inheritance tax.
The Daily Mail accidentally shot the Telegraph's argument that Corbyn comes from wealth in the foot, when the Mail jumped on the fact that the house was sold in 2016 for £650,000. This suggests that there was nothing in the estate other than the value of the house.
This means that Corbyn did inherit some wealth - A 1/4 share of the value of his mother's house, which, in today's money, it would have been a £172,000 share for each brother. This is a lot of money, but it is not a totally unreasonable sum for a pair of middle-class professionals to leave their children; his mother was a scientist and his father an electrical engineer, who were both already working by the late 1930s, when they met at an AntiFa rally against the rise of Franco.
Corbyn did go to a private prep school, but then passed his 11+ to go on to state grammar.
As a point of comparison (and an indulgence in whataboutery of my own), I'd like to submit the positive coverage of Zac Goldsmith's run at London Mayor in 2016. Many articles were published by the Telegraph, but this one is probably the puffiest, covering Zac's love of birds as a child, while letting him say he was " born into a position of privilege and am therefore not corruptible" without any criticism. Zac is now an heir to both the Goldsmith and Rothschild fortunes, after having an affair with and later marrying his brother's fiancé.
This was also around about the same time it emerged that David Cameron had received £300,000 from his father's estate, an additional £200,000 gift from his mother apparently made to dodge inheritance tax, and also that he had held shares in his father's Panama investment fund Blairmore Holdings prior to becoming PM, and he and his wife still held shares in his father's other Panama investment fund, Blairmore Investments.
7.) His MEXICAN THIRD WIFE is a brutal capitalist millionaire, he launders his fortune through her!
This was first brought up in the Mail in 2015, when they (for once) attempted to do 'a journalism', and went to Mexican coffee farms apparently owned by Laura Alvarez-Tonis, who they mention is Jeremy Corbyn's "third wife" three times in 1,300 words; meaning 0.5% of the article is "third wife".
The Daily Mail article obfuscates constantly as to whether Alvarez owns Cafe Mam, who apparently underpay their workers and keep them in terrible slave conditions; while they state the company is "estimated to be worth more than £600,000".
There are a couple of issues with this, one found in a response from the Fairtrade Foundation, when they explained that 2015 was a terrible year for all coffee growers due to fungal infections wiping out 40% of the Mexican crop and that the farms in question do not produce much in the way of coffee anyway.
The second, and more glaring issue, Alvarez doesn't own Cafe Mam.
Cafe Mam don't even own the farms: a conglomerate of self-employed farmers own ISMAM, which sells some of their coffee beans at Fairtrade price to an importert, Blue Royal Organics, who sell to their sister company, a roastery and distributor called Cafe Mam, both based in Oregon. Cafe Mam, in turn, export their coffee brand over the world to various companies, including Mexica Products Ltd, which is one of the UK distributors and is actually owned by Alvarez. The Mail uses Mexica Products,Cafe Mam and ISMAM interchangeably throughout the article in an attempt to confuse you into thinking Alvarez is responsible for all of the production chain.
In 2015, 2017 and 2018; Alvarez filed accounts with Companies House for Mexica Products Ltd as a micro-entity, which means they have a turnover of less than £600,000 and less than ten staff. In 2016, however, she filed as a small company. This could be where the Daily Mail got the company's estimated worth in a later update, but a look at those returns, suggests that Mexica Products Ltd probably lost money that year due to Alvarez' dividend as sole shareholder being minus £3k. The filing as a small company could have been a mistake by an accountant. In the moderately unlikely event that she did have more than a £600,000 turnover that year or had more than ten staff, that isn't how even valuations of companies work.
Either way, that doesn’t represent millions in the bank from Alvarez either.
This old, debunked story has recently been picked up by far right conspiracy site, Liberty Defenders, in a "100% FACTUAL" February 2019 blog post by Jack Sen, a man so racist he managed to get kicked out of UKIP, Britain First and the BNP so formed the British Renaissance chapter of the literal Nazi group, the European Knights Project. The post gained traction on the right because of Liberty Defender's open use of Russian bot farms. Jack Sen, who described black people as "cursed" on national telly, is probably not arguing in good faith for poor Mexican farmers.
On a side note, I'm still impressed and appalled, but not at all surprised by, the absolute brass neck of the Mail to consistently disparage Corbyn being on marriage number three aged 70, while mostly supporting Boris, who in his short 55 years has been married twice (he married his second wife, who was 8 months pregnant at the time, just 12 days after splitting up wife number one), and has had numerous affairs and illegitimate children throughout his life.

SUMMARY

Parliament has officially dissolved for the election season. No more business, questions, or debates will take place in Parliament until after the election. Anyone who was a Member of Parliament is no longer one as a result of Parliament being dissolved. So, what now?
We've now entered purdah. 'Purdah' is the period before an election, where there are rules and guidelines on what the Government and the civil service can and can't do. The Government should not seek to introduce new policies during this time. Government resources and the civil service should not be used for any party political purposes. During this period, Ofcom also has additional rules and guidelines for TV broadcasts to ensure that they give "due weight" to all major parties and candidates.
The megathreads continue! This is a place for dumping hot takes, reaction, and discussion about the upcoming election and other political events that don't warrant their own post. We'll be continuing to update the main OP of the MTs with new developments each day, from campaign and manifesto launches to leaders' TV debates.
The Conservatives will launch their election campaign today. So far, the parties which have officially launched their election campaign include Labour, the Liberal Democrats, Plaid Cymru, and the Brexit Party. We're still awaiting an official launch from the SNP.
Today's megathread is being maintained primarily by jaydenkieran and carrot-carrot.

PREVIOUSLY ON UKPOL:
  • Speaking on radio station LBC, Leader of the House of Commons Jacob Rees-Mogg commented on the Grenfell report, stating "I think if either of us were in a fire, whatever the fire brigade said, we would leave the burning building. It just seems the common sense thing to do." These comments came under fierce criticism, including from survivors' group Grenfell United. Rees-Mogg later apologised, saying "What I meant to say is that I would have also listened to the fire brigade's advice to stay and wait at the time. However, with what we know now and with hindsight I wouldn't and I don't think anyone else would. I would hate to upset the people of Grenfell if I was unclear in my comments."
  • Jo Swinson, leader of the Liberal Democrats, launched their campaign to 'stop Brexit and build a brighter future' today. When asked whether, if the election resulted in a hung Parliament, the Liberal Democrats would 'prop up' a Labour government, she replied "I am categorically ruling out Liberal Democrat votes putting Jeremy Corbyn into No 10. He is not fit to be Prime Minister."
  • The Conservatives came under fire for posting a tweet with edited footage of a Good Morning Britain interview with Labour's Keir Starmer. The footage makes it look like Starmer didn't know how to respond to a question posed by host Piers Morgan, when in actual fact the real footage shows that he responded straight away.
  • Former Chancellor Philip Hammond, who resigned from the Conservative Party when Boris Johnson became Prime Minister as he did not support a no-deal Brexit, announced that he will stand down as an MP to avoid fighting an election against a Conservative candidate. In his letter to constituents, he said "however aggrieved I feel at the loss of the whip, and however strongly I believe that we must deliver Brexit through a comprehensive trade agreement with the EU to protect British jobs and prosperity, I remain a Conservative and I cannot, therefore, embark upon a course of action that would represent a direct challenge in a General Election to the party I have supported all my adult life."
  • Outgoing European Commission president Jean-Claude Juncker gave an interview to the BBC where he responded to Labour stating they would negotiate a new Brexit deal if they won the election, saying "It will be up to the next Commission to decide if, yes or no, there is room for manoeuvre for a new deal - or new treaty - honestly speaking, I don't think this is a realistic approach."
  • The Liberal Democrats launched legal action against ITV as a result of the broadcaster excluding leader Jo Swinson from their election debate (a head-to-head between Johnson and Corbyn).
  • There have been calls on Welsh minister Alun Cairns to resign after he was accused of lying about his knowledge that a Conservative candidate for the Welsh Assembly, Ross England, had sabotaged a rape trial. He claimed he had been unaware of Ross England's role in the trial, but the BBC has obtained a leaked email showing he was made aware of the allegations as early as August last year.
TODAY:
  • Parliament was dissolved at 00:01, kicking off the pre-election ('purdah') period.
  • Sky News' Kay Burley empty-chaired Tory chairman James Cleverly this morning after he didn't turn up to a scheduled interview. Cleverly later responded on Twitter, stating that he was doing a radio interview with Julia Hartley-Brewer on talkRADIO and "cannot be in two studios at the same time".
  • The Green Party launched their election campaign, calling for £100 billion a year to be spent on tackling the "climate emergency". Sian Berry, the co-leader of the party, said "Some things are even bigger than Brexit. This must be the climate election. The future won't get another chance."
  • Welsh minister Alun Cairns resigned after he was accused of lying about his knowledge that a Conservative candidate for the Welsh Assembly, Ross England, had sabotaged a rape trial.
  • At a speech in Telford, Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn criticised Jacob Rees-Mogg's comments about Grenfell, saying "I’ll tell you what’s common sense: Don’t put flammable cladding on people’s homes. That’s common sense. Don’t close fire stations and don't cut fire fighters. That’s common sense."
  • Activist group Extinction Rebellion won a High Court challenge against the Metropolitan Police who imposed a London-wide ban on the group's protests last month.
  • At a press event, former Speaker John Bercow expressed his view on Brexit, stating "Brexit is the biggest mistake of this country after the war.".
  • Prime Minister Boris Johnson launched the Conservatives election campaign from 10 Downing Street after an audience with the Queen, expressing frustration at Parliament. He said, "I don't want an early election... but we've got to the stage where we have no choice, because our Parliament is paralysed."
  • The Labour Party's National Executive Committee has banned Chris Williamson, Stephen Hepburn, and Roger Godsiff from standing in the election as Labour candidates. Williamson was suspended because of an antisemitism row, Hepburn was being investigated for a sexual harassment claim, and Godsiff was facing reselection in his constituency.
  • The Lib Dems will stand down their candidate in Beaconsfield to try and boost the chances that former Conservative MP Dominic Grieve (who is pro-Remain) is re-elected to Parliament.
  • Tom Watson, the Deputy Leader of Labour, will not contest the election, citing "personal" rather than "political" reasons.

2018.08.07 12:10 Cartoondude135 How do I make the latest MapleStory Private Server?

Please bear with me, I'm having terrible luck getting answers to this question. The admins of FluffyMS and MapleLegends banned me for "spam" due to this; all because I was simply trying to ask for help to make my own up-to-date Private Server**. How is asking for help to make a Private Server "spam" anyways?**
I should've thought of/done this long ago rather than starve myself through all those school lunch times just so I could get a Store permit and sell stuff only to get insults in return instead from narrow-minded players who refused to join my guild.
After all these years of failed leveling, upgrading, and recruiting of guild members, and a destroyed Ghost Ship Exorcist badge on a 3 year old Mechanic, I decided to retire to a MapleStory Private Server. After playing on a Private Server for the first time after 3 years on GMS, I realized "I could've had all my MapleStory Short Story videos done by now (or maybe last year; one of the two)" (and just in case if you don't know what a MapleStory Short Story is, here's a sample for reference: [link]). But instead, I wasted it all on daily-limited quests and trying to get mesos to upgrade equips as well as $600CAD just to get nx and buy stuff (such as meso sacs and shop permits) to get things across and learn things in MS the hard way. Yes, I literally sacrificed $600CAD in high school lunch money just to get stuff like hair coupons in MS when I could've used that money to get a supercomputer. The destroyed GSE badge on my 3 year old 210 mechanic (via star enhancement window), plus Nexon's lack of equipment compensation ultimately led me to doing the one thing no one would ever encourage me to do: I gave up on GMS. Without my GSE badge, I can't continue on GMS. Plus, I wasted too much real money just to sell stuff in an attempt to get more mesos. Instead, I got more insults than mesos from players. Such as "Shoo.", "@No.", and "Leave.".
So my big question here is how do you make the latest version of a MS Private Server? Like, do they break into Nexon's HQ and extract all the sprites, maps, sound effects, etc off their computers and then reconstruct it like a jigsaw puzzle? If they did, then I'll have to pack my bags and fly to California in order to do that. Like, the MS files have to come from somewhere. Also, its the only way to acquire the Wizet Invincible Hat. Plus, there are rules on other Private Server sites that say things like "no hacking, injecting of tools/equips/packets, no wz file editing, etc". I feel like I deserve a vacation from this game, but don't wanna spend another 1-2-3 years recollecting all the mesos and equips myself. I need to make up for the 3 years of wasted time on MS and get my movie/animation projects finished at the same time.
In addition to the hat, the GM class itself is making me jealous. Yes, believe it or not, theres actually a class called "GM/SuperGM" (and I'm 99.99% certain you can only play as this class if you work for Nexon/Wizet). So with a personal Private Server (a Private Server meant for my own personal usage), I can see what it's like to be a GM and bypass all the other private server site rules. If the GM class itself doesn't make you jealous, maybe this will. Theres a skill called "Super Dragon Roar" that does %1000 damage to all monsters on screen and "Resurrection" that revives you instantly in the map you're currently in without needing to click OK to revive and teleporting to a safe town in the process or purchasing the Wheel Of Destiny from the Cash Shop.
While we're on this topic about hacking, why are bots bad? I never hacked before, but as a good player from GMS, the only good use I see for them is that they can allow me to farm mesos while I do house chores. Of course, I could call in my human friend to play MS for me while I make breakfast/lunch/dinner, do laundry, etc. So why are bots taboo to mmorpg moderators like MapleStory? That and having my friend play MS for me will make no difference (at least thats what I think).
A side question: why or how are Private Servers bad? Besides the fact that they allow you to play the game and get stuff absolutely free, I don't see how Private Servers are bad. Also, when you create a Private Server, do you as the admin, get a Wizet Invincible Hat?
Also, how do I safeguard my PS from Nexon so they don't find it? ExtaliaMS got shut down when Nexon discovered their ip address. (Well, actually, the real reason is unknown. But still, I wanna take extra precautions to avoid going to court to face Nexon.) And yeah, the last comment here: http://forums.maplestory.nexon.net/discussion/10306/how-do-i-make-the-latest-private-server was really helpful. In fact, it made me sick to my stomach! Because this tells me they're not telling me the full story! They're just using that as an excuse to cover their tracks that lead to something darker! What is that "thing" you might ask? I don't know. I just have to dig deeper into their database of secrets to find the truth.
So with this, I'll have to put my MMD project on hold for now. I gotta wait til MS2 is released so I can port its models to MMD.
And believe me, my friend. When it comes to MMORPGs, it's literally a race against time (this is where Time is Money. Such as EG, construction of a condo in a boom-town; the workers need to build it quickly to allow more residents to move in.). Especially if you have a huge amount of character classes to upgrade. Plus, you are only allowed to do a daily event once per character. I have a Mechanic, an Angelic Buster, a Corsair, a Cannon Master, a Zero, a Xenon, a Phantom, a Beast Tamer, and a Wild Hunter. That's like more kids than Octomom needs to feed. And I used up almost an entire day just to do daily quests on all of them due to the fact that alot of negative factors in the game slowed me down as the days rolled by! Whether it's bad hackers, DCs (which is an online game term for "disconnections") (regardless of whether I have a good or poor internet connection), unscheduled server maintenances, or anything else along those lines!
Plus, can't you compare a v83 Private Server to a discontinued game console like the Gamecube or the PlayStation 1? How can we play an old game from many years ago without a machine that's capable of doing so? So yeah, how can we try out the old skills and old classes of the older servers if we can't even play on the older servers of Yesterday Today? And how are we suppose to play Monsteropoly, One Card, Omok, and all the minigames of the old MapleStory anniversary events now that Star Planet (an old feature that allows us to go challenge other players in minigames in a special map) is no longer being run on the latest MapleStory server? Please refer to this link for more details about discontinued games and game consoles: A Major Note about Emulators for Game Developers.
Also, can't you compare a MMORPG Private Server to a Jailbreak Tweak (such as IAP Cracker and Installous**) for iPod Touches/iPhones/iPads**? Because for games like Tiny Tower, Subway Surfers, Candy Crush, etc, even without a Jailbreak/with the official server, I can still go the distance and get these games completed 100% without spending a single penny, because the developer(s) that made these game(s) intends to put them up to be downloaded for free. But I can't waste anymore time on these server-sided games as I have other important things to do. And yes, I recently got caught by mom when I was using my food money for things I wasn't suppose to (in this case, a jailbreak from a cell phone repair shop (if they have a JB available)). We got into a disagreement when she wouldn't listen further to what a jailbreak is as she's old school and doesn't know much about the computer world. Where did she make up these crazy thoughts? I'll never know.
Oh, 1 more thing. Besides internet service, how does a Private Server require funds to run? Because most PS sites say in their community guidelines "If possible, please donate as Private Servers need funds to run. I've been paying out of my own pocket for months now.".
Question 1 (and the most obvious one):How do I make the latest version of a MapleStory Private Server? The latest version as of now is v197 Ark. I don't intend to share my PS with ANYONE anytime soon. I merely wanna see how every character class functions at Max Level. Again, cross my heart, I have no intentions of sharing or hosting my PS anytime soon as I need to turn the 2d sprites into 3d models. And there is a problem when I'm dealing with MMORPGs: there are other major commitments I have to attend to (such as dealing with children, working full time, etc). I just want to relax and enjoy the game, but I can't enjoy it at it's full potential, because I need to be at a certain level to unlock things. That's the major thorn in my butt. Also, with the loss of BannedStory, I have to resort to a PS to animate character sprites.
Question 2:How do you create the GM/SuperGM class as you are the admin of your created PS?
Question 3:What are the commands needed to find and generate usable items (HP/MP/Boost potions), equips, mesos, etc; to spawn certain monsters/bosses, and many other things?
Question 4:As your the GM/admin with a GM account, how do you get stolen skills onto a Phantom from explorer classes if there is no other players online as explorers to steal skills?
Question 5:How do you acquire the GM equipment (Wizet Invincible Hat, Wizet Suit and Pants, Wizet Suitcase)?
Question 6:Are S-Nebulites obtainable? If so, how? I want Damage to Bosses +35% and All Stats +6%.
Question 7:Is there a way to change each of the Potential Lines (on normal and bonus potential) on equipment manually? Because all 3 of the Potential lines (EG, All Stats: +XX%, Ignore Monster Defense: +X%, and Critical Rate: +XX% change at random when cubed.
Question 8:Is there a way to choose specific lines for Inner Ability? Because I want to have All Stat +40, Boss Damage: +20%, and Normal Monster Damage: +10% for all my character classes.
Question 9:How do I safeguard my PS from Nexon? I don't wanna face them in court after they caught the owners of ExtaliaMS.
Question 10:I'm currently on Windows 7. I might upgrade to Windows 10 3 years from now. So how do I make my PS compatible with Windows 10?Question 11:These next 5 questions are for the admins of FluffyMS: how do I make my server so that the star force enhancements don't drop at all? Because this will alleviate tons of time and stress enhancing equipment.
Question 12:How do I make all Beast Tamer's animal skills active without having to switch animals as well as have all skill trees maxed out?
Question 13:How do I control what drops from monsters? Because in FluffyMS, monsters only drop mesos, NX, and equips of all kinds from all regional MS servers (GMS, EMS, CMS, etc.).
Question 14:How do I set up my own NPCs? Because the NPCs in FluffyMS look just like playable characters.
Question 15:How do I make my own commands to do whatever I want?And Question 16:How do I rig monsters to spawn NX for me to use Cash Shop items?

Questions Answers
Thoughts on what microsoft has done with skype? Microsoft: skype was acquired 3-4 times, depending on how you count, and microsoft was certainly different, since the earlier acquirers basically left the company mostly untouched (eg, it continued being a luxembourg business), whereas microsoft seems to be actually trying to squeeze out as much value (a.k.a. "synergies") from skype as possible (eg, actually integrating skype into their platforms and products).
PRISM: interesting situation. basically we have the word (and documents) of a whistleblower against the word of PR departments of respected tech companies. without knowing the details (just having read couple of articles from HN) i would assign equal credence to both sides.
How much of the 8 Billion did you get as tax-free take-home pay? Nothing, because i sold my shares to EBAY, not microsoft (as i said above, skype has been acquired several times).
Your PRISM response is dodgy at best. Whistle blowers with documents and proof vs people paid to lie in a clever way...and you say both have equal credence? To clarify, by "equal credence" i did not mean that they are both right, but "given the information i have (which is very little!) i would assign roughly similar probabilities to their statements being true".
That is ridiculous. Oh, and i disagree with the "people being paid to lie" statement.
How does it feel to have a capital city named after you? Capital city: heh, yeah, i wish.. tallinn (the city) has about a 1000-year head-start on me unfortunately. which when we'll be looking back on this in a couple of billion years will hardly matter of course :)
What happened? Kazaa and malware: what happened was that a) kazaa (like napster before it) failed to negotiate licensing deals with content companies, while b) the "paid downloads" industry was offering extremely lucrative deals.
Had you lost control of it by then? One thing to remember is that malware industry pretty much started around then and co-evolved with the likes of kazaa -- so it was constantly trying to find a balance between agressiveness and sustainability. much like real world viruses are, i might add.
Why is it that when I hit the close button on skype, it minimizes it? Who thought of that? That's standard behaviour for IM clients (after which skype was modeled). the client needs to remain running in order for other people to be able to contact you. skype was (and, to a significant degree, still is) P2P.
How do you think programming and philosophy relate to each other? do you think everyone is a philosopher? Oh, wow, an excellent question! i think programming can help people to overcome the mind projection fallacy, because you develop a sense of what it means to have your thoughts fully specified. this is extremely important in philosophy (not to mention other areas!) that has a really bad track record due to treating intuitions as evidence (or, as my friend michael vassar puts it, "philosophers have been spectacularly bad at recognising that their insights are produced by cognitive algorithms"). in my view philosophers have had thousands of years to come up with interesting thoughts and questions, but now we need answers, and they better be in the form of executable computer code!
How do you pronounce Kazaa? Internally we pronounced it ka-ZAH. the project was originally called KAA (after a restaurant in amsterdam, i was told), but we were not able to procure kaa.com domain, so the project was renamed to kazaa.
Who in the tech business world do you most respect, and who do you respect the least? Most: out of the well known figures, i would have to go with elon musk -- it's uncanny how much he resembles hank rearden! least: no one in particular comes to mind, but as a reference class, i would probably go with people who optimise their companies to be as fashionable as possible in order to attract investments (vs doing something that makes an actual difference). not that i can't understand them.
I'm puzzled. Tl;dr: humans - including prominent people - mostly do things that feel intuitively right to them, and our instincts value things that give you social status, meaning that you have to focus on things that a) most people easily understand (not the case with x-risks that are rather abstract) and b) where you can get short term feedback (again, not the case with x-risks).
It got removed! why??? i never knew of this skype me... Skype-me was a special presence you could set, making you visible to the entire world. unfortunately, we got a lot of complaints from users who accidentally set it and then were disturbed by unsolicited calls from strangers. so eventually, a business decision was made to get rid of it instead of fixing it.
Why do you think you've been able to work on such amazing technology? What do you differently than most that gives you such opportunities? My passion is definitely x-risk and related topics. it seems both the most important thing i could spend my time on, as well as the most rewarding in terms of people i get to work with (see previous point).
Outliers was a fascinating book. I feel like there's a story somewhere about your choosing people who care about being right more than appearing convincing... Care to share? Well, i don't remember any particular story off the top of my head, but i was lucky to attend a high-school that had the internal culture of math and physics being cool (eg, back then we used to dominate estonian math and physics olympiads, so there was a lot of positive feedback), and i believe that did influence me quite a bit (actually, 3 of the 4 skype founding engineers come from that same highschool class).
One of the issues my wife and I frequently discuss is the poor diagnostics found in modern hospitals and from doctors, the major issue being, "To a hammer, all problems are a nail." A personal example is that I went to the VA and was diagnosed with PTSD. Seth Horowitz did an AMA and in 5 minutes, with the same information the VA had, was able to identify the exact issue I had. Is this type of "crowdsourcing" medical problems the goal of MetaMed? You're right -- metamed has lots of stats on the challenges of healthcare system that we're hoping to address. we don't aim to do crowdsourcing per se (unless we figure out an effective way to do that!). instead, as i wrote here, our plan is to identify (and train) people who are good when it comes to evaluating evidence in the medical literature, and then have them do research for our clients (of course, we do plan to expand our advisory board over time, so we could have various experts at hand as well)
How good does it feel to have altered human sexuality? Haha! as my american friends would say, exciting! :)
How does one juggle programming, family, and being a founder of more than one organization? I want to know, what sort of sleep regimen and schedule do you keep? You never seem to be late, so would like to know, how you keep yourself organized. TODO-s and delegation :) (i really should delegate more of my coding projects, but i have the "old programmer's" problem of having hard time trusting other people's code).
Hey duude! My question is: If you had to start your career from scratch, would you go into the same parts of computer science, or do you wish you had tried some others? The thing with programming as a career is that the hardware we had when i started in late 80-s was so different from the hardware we have today -- to a degree where i would argue that being a programmer today is a different occupation than being a coder back then. so i couldn't do it all over again even if i wanted to.
Hi Jaan, thanks for your time today and for all your philanthropy! I'm hoping to get your opinion on the optimal distribution of resources/education. Do you think it's a better investment to focus on the best minds in hopes of developing new, revolutionary ideas; or to distribute our efforts to raise the education level of society as a whole? I guess that depends on the eventual goals. i have been thinking about this very question in the context of existential risks, and there it seems to boil down to timelines: since education takes time, it would not be very useful against risks that need to be addressed in the next decade or so. however, for longer term risks, it clearly is, so as long as one tries to address a wide range of possible scenarios, (effective) education can certainly play a very important role. hence my support to the center for applied rationality for example.
1.What do you think about when you start a tech start-up? (no really, what would you say were your frame of mind, at launch) Doing a startup is a process, not a moment, so there is no a single thing you're thinking about. at launch people are usually anxious about the public reception -- as you'd expect, really.
What eventually happened to Kazaa? It was sold to sharman networks that eventually crumbled under the weight of incoming lawsuits. interestingly, we actually developed next generation kazaa that never got launched due to sharman going under (also, skype was taking off, so we did not have much time to focus on it). which is a shame, because the world hasn't really seen what a p2p filesharing tech is actually capable of :)
You can't just say that and not expound on it! What do you mean? As opposed to fasttrack (the p2p platform underlying kazaa), it had exhaustive global searches (kazaa could only search 100k computers or so, whereas at its peak there were 5M users simultaneously online), and.
It was able to do sql-like queries over structured metadata of files (eg, "give me all artists whose recent albums contain a string 'hello'"), not just search file names.
Good morning and thanks for doing this AMA. When you developed games, was the end goal making them incredible difficult to win? Also, how long did Skype take to create? Haha! yes, my games career spanned the 90's, when "men were real men, women were real women and small furry creatures from Alpha Centauri were real small furry creatures from Alpha Centauri", so people had a different view of what "playability" meant. that said, you're right, of course many of them were clearly over the top even according to the standards back then :)
First version of skype took just 8 months from idea to launch -- from december 2002 till august 2003. shows the importance of having an experienced team that can hit the ground running.
Effectively communicating with doctors/medical professionals is hard for the average layperson. This problem is compounded when you're sick, scared, and uninformed. Is this one of the objectives of MetaMed? To help optimize the doctor-to-patient and patient-to-doctor communication dynamic? Yes, at least eventually.
The premise of metamed is that there's a lot of valuable people and expertise out there in the healthcare system and medical science, but it's fragmented and diluted in a system that does not really reward excellence (at least not in a way, say, that commercial aviation really has tight feedback loops that makes the system promote safety). so you need something or someone to identify the good bits.
Increasingly this is left to the patients themselves, but it can't be sustainable in the long term to assume that everyone is supposed to do their own medical research. at metamed we basically hire our researchers based on their ability to review medical literature and do the meta-research, so we can hopefully yield qualitatively better results.
In light of recent events. Has the government every approached you asking for a way to monitor skype? Me personally? no. of course skype's legal people were constantly contacted by various law enforcement agencies -- as you would expect.
What do you think of the Free Software movement? It clearly works well in areas where the problems are mostly limited to interesting technical challenges (such as OS-es), and less well when there are lots of nitty-gritty cross-domain challenges that require coordinating people with different expertise.
What is your opinion on Eleizer Yudkowsky, another prominent rationalist/futurist and founder of lesswrong.com? Well, eliezer's certainly an unorthodox figure, but i consider him a good friend. not to mention that i'm a donor to the organisation he founded -- MIRI.
Most importantly though, eliezer's writings were largely responsible for getting me interested in the whole x-risk reduction topic -- so he has been hugely influential in my current "career path".
What's the existential risk you're most afraid of? What should we be doing about it. I would not frame it in terms of fear, but intelligence explosion is on the top of my list of things to address -- both because of my own personal background (eg, i'm much less knowledgeable about x-risks from biology or nanotech) and also because AI, if done responsibly, can actually help with addressing the other x-risks.
Can you ask Priit Kasesalu if he will ever work on Subspace again? Ref for those who want to know what Subspace is: Link to www.subspace.co. Sure, will do :)
What do you do for fun? I like to dance :) as a computer nerd, i was completely surprised how much utility it can yield when you do it right.
How was strenghts divided between you and Janus Friis in regard to development, ideas and so on? Skype was a collective idea -- we actually pivoted from doing a wifi-sharing network (not unlike fon), to doing a VOIP product.
We actually got a lot of good press out of the fact that there are 5 countries on this planet who felt patriotic about skype (sweden and denmark because the main founders were from there, estonia because it was developed here, UK because the main business office was in london, and luxembourg because skype was a luxembourg company!)
What was your inspiration for Skype? The initial idea was to develop a wifi-sharing network, and then provide various "telecom-like" services on top of that, such as TV and telephony. however, 1) we were in the midst of lawsuits with major content producers after having done kazaa, so we dropped the TV idea, and 2) we found out that all the existing VOIP products out there at the time sucked (mostly due to their inability to work through NAT), so we focused on developing our own protocol.
How do you see companies like Viber threatening Skype? I think, in general, the main advantage that new companies have, is to be better adjusted to the current state of the ever-evolving technological environment.
For example, when the core skype code was written, we were mostly addressing desktop and laptop computers, so the tech design did not have energy consumption as a priority. now with the primary growth platform being smartphones, that is a problem (and once you have 100-s of millions of users, things like backwards compatibility considerations make your code hard to change)
Being a creator of kazaa, what are your personal views on the ethics of piracy? Do you believe piracy is wrong and companies should seek to stop it at all costs, or rather that piracy is only enabled by those who wont reinvent their business practices? I'm a consequentialist, so i don't think there is anything that should be done at all costs, or stopped because it's (normatively) "wrong".
What's your favorite piece of philosophical advice? As i wrote here, the meta-advice of always keeping in mind that your thoughts and intutions, including the philosphical ones, are generated by atoms moving around in your brain, must be one of my favorite ones.
(Hopefully someone sees this, although it seems the AMA is over) My question: Do we know this to be the case? Or is it probable? (I don't know the correct probability theory terminology) As someone who has recently discovered an interest in this subject matter and is working their way through some Yudowsky/Muehlhauser writings, this is something I'm struggling with. I have a philosophy background, but my undergrad work was on the continentals and transcendentalists, who I think would take issue with your claim. Oh geez, now I'm reading that LW post you referenced, but his "Failed Methods" section only briefly (and not very constructively) addresses the 'large swaths of philosophy' that I have been trained in. I suppose I could just read more, as I have been for the past year, but I think I'm just starving for some good ol' dialogue. Unfortunately, the internet is a much better medium for communicating the technical rationality found on LW, rather than the continental ideas that I'm trying to bring in. Oh geez. Perhaps someone could point me in the right direction? That's too difficult to answer in concise manner (eg, in my view there really is no meaningful difference between "something being the case" and "something being probable"), but "the lesswrong sequences" contain a wealth of information about this: Link to wiki.lesswrong.com
Wow, Kazaa. That's a name I haven't heard in a while. How long did it take to develop the program? Your thoughts on torrenting? I remember the initial kazaa project brainstorm was in summer 2000, and we released it in spring 2001 i think. not a lot of thoughts on torrenting other than it's clearly a solid technological protocol.
What's the hardest part(s) of getting a successful startup going? I have had venture capitalists approach me about funding a startup of mine, but they wanted WAYYY too much. How much is right to give away right out of the gate? Well, ignoring things like preferred shares, veto rights, etc for a moment, you just have to do the calculation of whether you expect, given the investment, the value of your diluted share of the company be greater or less than the undiluted share, given no investment. or, put more simply, if you don't expect the investment to make a significant difference in your growth rate, don't take it.
How's it going Mr. Tallinn. Did you ever work closely with Priit Kasesalu? I used to play with him in a game called Subspace, in which he was working on the client for the game, Continuum; shortly before he started working on Skype. Was a cool guy! Did you ever work on small projects like that before you worked on Skype? Sure, we started our programming careers together, co-founded bluemoon and now are working together at ambient sound investments.
What's your favorite programming language? Better yet, what are all the programming languages you know? In chronological order: basic, 8080 assembler, x86 assembler, c, c++, java, javascript, and currently python. thinking of moving on to clojure or haskell (my python already looks a lot like haskell :))
Is it true that earlier versions of Skype were written in Delphi? If yes what was the latest version used? What libraries? Why did Delphi got ditched? We just happened to have a couple of good UI developers who preferred to code in delphi. it was still used when i last was at skype, so i don't know if/why it was ditched.
Is Tallinn your real name, or a pseudonym taken from the capital of Estonia? If it is your real name, is there a story there? Both real name and taken from the capital, since estonian peasants got last names only a couple of hundred years ago when the city was already around.
As a prominent member of the social media and web based community what are your opinions on the recent developments with regards to the NSA spying scandal? Do you think large internet based companies could do more to be proactive about preventing these types of loopholes? See my reply here.
Can you tell us your opinion on the whole NSA thing that's just been revealed? See my reply here
Are the reports true that skype is releasing personal data? I wouldn't know, since i haven't been with skype for a while.
What do you know about the NSA tapping into Skype for surveillance purposes? Nothing. i'm no longer with skype.
Oh Kazaa, Thank you for taking my internet innocence You're welcome, especially if you put it that way :)
I wanted to make a similar comment. I have a four month old son and my husband works on a mine site. It means everything to us that he is able to see his son and make him smile. It makes my husband's personal sacrifice that bit easier to handle. Thanks :) i once did a quick fermi calculation at a party to estimate that i can take credit for roughly a million saved human relationships :)
probably a fair few created human relationships, too! I was bored one evening in 2006 and tried SkypeMe. One of the first people to pop up was a girl from Lima, Peru - 6,000 miles away. We've now been married for 5 years, and have a 2.5-year-old son together. So, thanks a million! :) Wow, very cool :) glad to hear that skype-me managed to be good for something before it got removed.
For some reason Estonia has become really well known on reddit lol. Mainly because of the awesome polandball shit but also generally in a positive light, unlike latvia and potatos. But yes. Estonia big. E-stonia hehueheuehuuhehue. Sometimes journalists ask me what's the "secret of estonia" -- i believe a large part of it is that we were "lucky" to be in a position of having to completely rebuild our infrastructure in the 90-s when the web was already around (and having young people in charge -- one of our early prime ministers, mart laar, was 32 years old at the time!). kind of similar advantage that new startups have over old companies -- having less legacy systems and hence more flexibility to take advantage of recent technological environment.
I love how you refer to old people as "legacy systems". Heh, that was not my intention :) but a friend of mine once made an interesting point by saying that the world has been taken over by aliens -- and, after a dramatic pause, clarified that most of the power and wealth in the world today is held by people who are older than people traditionally used to live.
2) It's a "black swan" problem (i.e. a low-probability, high-impact event might occur in the future that is not easily predictable from looking at the past), and human intuition SUCKS at having a proper awareness of these. (The recent bestseller "The Black Swan" covers this issue in detail) I don't agree that it is a black swan problem, actually. i agree with martin rees (my co-founder at CSER) that the chances of some existential risk materalising this century are around 50%.
Aitäh sulle. Palun :)
Skyroads was an amazing game, and pretty much what introduced me to PC gaming as a child. I just wanted to say thanks. Thanks :) yes, bluemoon still gets an occasional fan-email about that.
I remember i stopped using it after almost every mp3 i downloaded would scare the living shit out of me with a 100 decibel white noise screech. Tell you what though, i much prefer Spotify, which i guess kazaa paved the way for by starting the whole P2P thing. Right, there were companies out there who were commissioned to pollute the file sharing networks. interestingly, i later met some people who worked for them -- it was fun swapping "war stories" :)
Id like to know what you think about the latest NSA illegal wireless tapping, the storage of meta data and how it all ties in with skype talk sessions that are stored and given to Government Agencies. I gave one quick reply here, but as a general rule, i try to steer clear of hot political debates (and signalling tribal affiliations), because doing that seems instrumentally counter-productive for my goal of x-risk reduction.
