Your average Republican thinks marrying a transgender person is the worst thing their child could do. Your average Democrat thinks it's only the second worst thing they could do (behind only marrying a Republican).

Die Argumentation "der Gehweg ist eh im Arsch und die Leute gehen auf der Straße, kann man also auch drauf parken" ist auch Gold.

2 Personen, die 3 Autos besitzen, diese trotz vorhandener Stellplätze im Hof auf dem Gehweg parken und sich dann auch noch über Knöllchen beschweren?!

WTF?

Some people mentioned that the @swisspost@twitter.com voting system had been used in previous Swiss elections. Is that true, and are there published audit logs?

My PhD advisor told me to put a ten dollar bill between the pages of my thesis in the university library.

"So I can check to see if anyone read it?", I asked.

"No, of course no one will read it," he replied, "but when you come back into town you'll always have money for lunch." twitter.com/NoahHaber/status/1

It's like a beautiful red flag fractal where the closer you look at any particular red flag the more you find red flags.

So to summarize this long tweet thread: *no* it is not the case (apparently) that this code is trivially broken. *no*, that does not make it safe to use in real elections, nor (as far as I know) has it been audited by anyone competent enough to really bless it. 16/

All of this is a long-winded way of saying that, no, a bug bounty is NOT the right tool to evaluate something so complex and fragile. PARTICULARLY when, thanks to enterprise Java, huge portions of the critical code look like this: 15/

So I’m a little torn. Yesterday for fun (yes, I have bad work-life balance) I took a look at some of the @swisspost@twitter.com e-voting code that the agency recently provided under bug bounty. Apparently it’s being used in real elections. 1/

Irenes' work taught me basically everything I know about plurality. Super happy to see this document externalized — it's well worth a read! twitter.com/ireneista/status/1

Anyway, if this was an actual review, instead of me being having a perverted sense of a relaxing Sunday, then I would probably be prioritizing packages and writing a diplomatically worded email to the team about time constraints.

Thankfully that is not my job this time.

I've just spent an hour of my precious life trying to determine the encryption parameters used in the above proofs and I still have no clue, every example config/parameter that relates to it seems to be no where close to sensible or secure - which is a big flag by itself.

RT @SarahJamieLewis@twitter.com

So, I took a look at swiss online voting system code that someone leaked, and having written, deployed and audited large enterprise java code...that thing triggers every flag.
