What's Going On In Russia?
I know very little about Russia and we have only one Russian poster, but others may be more knowledgeable.

Photoshop will destroy humanity.
In reality, the bear was riding Putin. Shirtless, of course.
A matter of attitude.

And good for him. His poll support is phenomenal and it will be hard for any Head of State in the "Free" World to equate that. Oops nearly forgot my own country is in that league. Eat your hearts out ex-colonist associates!  :yes:

My laptop came equipped with a webcam in the top part of the screen.

I come equipped with a roll of electrical tape.

Cut six inches off the roll of tape, place this over the camera lens--- viola! I just defeated the Russian hackers!

Now, of course the microphones are a little harder to defeat, but still not too difficult if you've been watching enough spy-guy movies.

Eh, the same tape will do a pretty good job. Those things are low quality to start with.

Apropos that, one wonders who might be responsible for "Regin".

Note the countries that have reported Regin - makes one speculated.
But Austria? Why Austria?

I guess all are targeted but not nearly all report it.

You do everything for the best reasons - spying, blackmailing, covert ops, wars, regime changes.
With any of your reasons the world becomes more safe and our gratitude is everlasting. :)

You don't spy for the best of reasons at all krake. You do it because you are imperialist, arrogant think you are something and betray the idea of freedom, riths, privacy for emotional midnsets attitudes. It is either that or you lot are a bunch of mental under developed minds that have never grown up yet.  You are top of the list when it comes to spying on all your own people and everywhere else and the trtie answer is always "security." Long moons ago I commented you have more spy agencies than the Nzis and  an awful lot more than the Russians . Your constant rubbish about Russia over there is because you grew up in the days of the Cold War and cannot get away from the childish mind. Neither can you do much when there is a country on the planet you cannot control like freaks.

I don't believe in space aliens but if they did exist I do trust they land in the good ole land of the free and home of the brave (yawn). The time before WW2 when the Orson Welles radio play told there was an invasion caused mayhem and only proved what I claim that as a race there is a kindergarten mindset and easy to panic! When i want a laugh and have seen most comedy on television, etc I watch for news from the ex-colonies. Boy that is entertainment!  :devil:

Rj will believe anything that makes Americans look stupid, violent or insane. And I believe that all Scotsmen look like this.

Shouldn't this post about Regin spyware be moved into the "What's Going on in the Americas?" thread?
"What's going on in the UK and Crown Dependencies?" would be also a right place for this topic.

Shows the ignorance Macallan of your own racial characteristics laddie. You folk get excited and emotional at the least wee thing due to your minds brained by the system. The East Coast did go bananas so either you are being deliberately evasive or there is ignorance. Cities had long traffic jams, trains and buses full of people scared out their wits and fleeing.  Here the stiff upper lip would have applied and maturity which your country lacks. Indeed Glasgow being a down to earth and gritty city they would have been first to take anyone on!

It is always the same on national traits. You will believe anything and run about like ants emotionally. Orson was very clever knowing this hence where he did the programme. Tough sonny you lost it.  :(

An entire nation possesses the same "traits"? That being the case, you'll have to show us a short video of you doing a jig.
