It seems Pope Francis needs to brush up on his Tertullian!

It has been reported (in The ChristLast Media, I must note) that the current Pope does not like the phrase "lead us not into temptation...

"Let no freedom be allowed to novelty, because it is not fitting that any addition should be made to antiquity. Let not the clear faith and belief of our forefathers be fouled by any muddy admixture." -- Pope Sixtus III

Dudes! At least swipe something we want to watch!

Seriously, "Orange Is The New Black" is your big prize?


From RT.com:

Dark Overlord hackers hold Netflix to ransom, release stolen TV shows ...

After nearly two months off the grid, the notorious hacker group The Dark Overlord (TDO) has returned to terrorize TV and film executives with its own unique brand of Twitter extortion.
On April 29, TDO released 10 episodes of the upcoming series of “Orange Is The New Black” as part of its shakedown, which is currently only targeting Netflix. However, the hacker or group of hackers (this has yet to be established) has also called out NBC, ABC, CBS, Fox and IFC.

Who is next on the list? FOX, IFC, NAT GEO, and ABC. Oh, what fun we're all going to have. We're not playing any games anymore.
TDO is known to target third-party vendors, rather than studios themselves, and in this instance, the gigabytes of stolen content are believed to come from an award-winning post-production studio in Hollywood named Larson Studios.

DataBreaches.net claims to have seen a copy of a contract signed by a representative of Larson Studios and TDO who allegedly signed with the name "Adolf Hitler.” The ransom agreement indicated that Larson would pay TDO 50 Bitcoin by January 31, however, it appears they reneged on the agreement.

Rather than persist with the threats to the vendor, TDO changed tack and began extorting Netflix itself.

They miscalculated, kiddies. What do guys REALLY want to watch? PORN!

TDM [Total Douche Move] should shut off access to all porn on the net and force guys to pay for it. Then we'd be talking real money.

Of course, my bent-nosed mob cousins would then track them down and whack 'em all. They are real gangsters, after all. [What? You didn't know La Cosa Nostra controls the porn biz?]

“We naturally approached Netflix and the others in an attempt to devise a mutually-beneficial arrangement where we are paid and Netflix and friends don’t wake up to find their hard work plastered on the internet,” TDO said in online statement. “Our proposals went unanswered so our hands have been forced. We were quite offended by our targets’ responses (or lack thereof).”

Netflix responded but declined to address whether it would pay the ransom: “We are aware of the situation. A production vendor used by several major TV studios had its security compromised and the appropriate law enforcement authorities are involved.”

It's nearly time to play another round.
While such stories of hackers sticking it to big corporations are often celebrated online, TDO has previously attempted to extort private health clinics by threatening to release sensitive patient information before subsequently publishing the information on the Dark Web.

First of all, the word is SEX, not GENDER. If you are ever tempted to use the word GENDER, don't. The word is SEX! SEX! SEX! SEX! For example: "My sex is male." is correct. "My gender is male." means nothing. Look it up. What kind of sick neo-Puritan nonsense is this? Idiot left-fascists, get your blood-soaked paws off the English language. Hence I am choosing "male" under protest.
