IF YOU HEARD 9/11 WAS ABOUT TO HAPPEN AND DID NOTHING TO TRYAND PREVENT IT, HOW WOULD YOU FEEL? IF YOU CLICK ONTO A FIVE YEAR OLD ARTICLE OF MINE THAT SUDDENLY IS GETTING HUNDREDS OF HITS, AND SCROLL DOWN THE PAGE…YOU’LL FIND COMMENTS BY PEOPLE WHO DON’T KNOW HOW TO WRITE VERY WELL ENGLISH, TALKING TO EACH OTHER IN SOME KIND OF CODE.

When Sunny Smith a/k/a Sunny Monday, told me that she went to read an article I wrote some time ago about a mutual friend of ours Sissy Spacek, whom I discovered Sunny wrote me, ” Artie, What’s happened to your site? Who is product? Who is joe mignogna? What do their comments have to do with the song that Sissy recorded under the name Rainbo, “JOHN YOU WENT TOO FAR THIS TIME?” https://artiewayne.wordpress.com/2006/08/18/the-naked-truth-about-john-lennon-and-yoko-ono-and-an-outraged-sissy-spacek/

I looked at the 50 comments that were made at the bottom of my article and realized that something very serious was possibly going on…i just didn’t know what! Then I saw a show on CNN on how rebels were able to bring down the Egyptian gorvrnment by using coded messages to each other on FACEBOOK and TWITTER and I figured out what all of this all might mean!

When my computer crashed and I wasn’t able to warn anybody about what I stumbled across, i contacted my friends Trade Martin, Hunter George, and Sharon Link to contact my FACEBOOK FRIENDS in my name about the possible threat to America.  

.

The first person to respond was Antoinette  Butrico-Gino, who contacted the FBI and Homeland Security who gave her a number and said she’d be contacted. It’s been 48 hours and no one has tried to reach her. Then I got a comment from someone who thought I was trying to plug something, as well as someone else I’ve known for over 40 years, who wrote, ” Artie, sorry I had to take this post down. Nudity and the stupidity of The Lennon nude period just can’t be tolerated at a Family friendly Facebook page.”

Obviously missing the point of the possible danger as well as foolishly calling it ” a Family friendly FACEBOOK page”, I wrote him back, “Your ignorence is astonishing…I just unfriended you”

Then after reading a few more comments, I realized that perhaps I should make my suspicions a little clearer…

 Linda Albu – WHAT DATES can you give a REFERENCE POINT IN YOUR BLOG COMMENTS so we can FIND what you are talking about please…???? It’s a LONG BLOG.

Artie- ABOUT HALFWAY DOWN THE COMMENTS PEOPLE WITH 5 OR 6 NUMBERS AFTER THEIR NAMES SEEM TO BE COMMUNICATING WITH EACH OTHER IN SOME KIND OF CODE. STARTING WITH MORGAN SILVER MARCH 9 2012
 
Linda -Yes I noticed that, Artie. I understand that no activity was happening on this blog of yours for 5 years, then suddenly the ‘numbered’ comments started to get hit?
 
Artie – NO I HAVE OVER 2 MILLION VIEWS ON MY BLOG…THEN FOR NO APPARENT REASON THAT ARTICLE STARTS GETTING HIT! https://artiewayne.wordpress.com/2012/04/10/celebrating-two-million-views-today-on-artie-wayne-on-the

THIS IS WHAT HAPPENED A COUPLE OF DAYS AGO TO MY FRIEND ACTRESS, BUNNY GIBSON, WHO WAS AN ORIGINAL “AMERICAN BANDSTAND” DANCER.
 

Hi Artie,

Okay,  here is the whole truth and nothing but the truth!

 I was busy at the computer when I open an email from “AOL” saying that it is URGENT that I update my account with them to continue getting emails.
That was enough to get my attention and I replied to the email giving my account name and “Password”.  Yes, I gave my password.

Now, I’ve heard of a lot of scams and thought they would never get to me.  After I filled out the page asking for my password, I pressed “continue” and on the next page they were asking me to update all my info……including credit card info, date of birth, etc.

Now, I am proud to say, I was now concerned and suspicious and thought that I would talk to my Webmaster first before I gave information (which I don’t like to do anyhow).  No more than 10 minutes later, I started getting returned emails –  emails were being returned to my site that no longer worked when they hacked my whole email list.

I changed my “password”……and, I guess good comes out of everything.  As I have heard from people I haven’t seen or talked to in years!  And, I had the pleasure of reassuring the men in my life that I know that they are all  “Studs” and really didn’t need the Viagra! – I’ve been hacked!!!

My friend later informed me that the “URL” address must always contain an “s” meaning that it is a “secure” site. 

On to the the next day’s adventure……signing off this email,  

The “real” Bunny Gibson www.BunnyGibson.com or you can write me at Bunny@BunnyGibson.com

Less than a year ago My Space was the “King of the social networks” now it’s considered little more than a joke. What happened?

Perhaps it was the scandals about the privacy issues that kept popping up, or the rumors about information being sold to third parties that brought the mighty Giant to its knees. Now it is hardly ever mentioned by entertainment and news shows as a way to communicate with them. Instead the public is told to visit their Twitter or Facebook page.

Once it was cool to be on My Space. You could put your music, art, videos, or your innermost thoughts up on the site hoping to be discovered, but then realized you were only being compromised. My Space was a good idea but when it became overcrowded with mediocrity and became rife with opportunists, cyber bullies, and predators…it became nightmare!

I joined Facebook about six months ago, which I soon discovered was allowed to access your addresses, photos, and other personal information every time you joined a club, attended an event, played a game, or joined a cause. Although I reconnected with over 400 people from my past, it just wasn’t worth the price I’d have to pay for the privilege.

When I tried to get more information about Twitter, I mistakenly clicked onto a join button that gave Twitter immediate access to 460 of my e-mail addresses. Before I knew what was happening my entire list was sent an e-mail, supposedly from me, inviting them to join Twitter.

I was outraged by this and wrote several scathing articles about Twitter. Then over the New Year’s weekend of 2009, Biz Stone the creator and CEO, contacted me, then he and staff corrected the problems…which impressed me to no end.

Since that time, Twitter has grown to hundreds of times of what it was, and has been compared to the Pony Express, the telegraph, the telephone, air mail, radio, and television. It is by far the fastest, most immediate, and possibly the most important evolution in communication the world has ever known. I wonder how long it will stay a free service.

How much would you be willing to pay for Twitter? Is a “Tweet really worth a thousand words?”

Here are some images from Twitter that have made the world a little more transparent….from global events to Katy Perry naked in a bathtub with a Pizza!

This week’s top story seems to be that Barbara Walters, Larry King, and most of the free world have joined TWITTER.

It’s amazing how quickly TWITTER, the social network, has become part of the world’s collective consciousness. The first time I heard about it was at the end of the Presidential campaign when Senator John McCain sent telegrams and used land lines to keep in touch with his staff, while Senator Barack Obama used cell phones and TWITTER to stay in touch with his…with the whole world following his every “Tweet”.

What impresses me most about the service is the message or “Tweet” is limited to 140 characters (about six lines), which forces the user to communicate more concisely. Although I had a problem with TWITTER initially, everything has been resolved. Even though I like the idea of communicating quickly, I haven’t become an active member because I’ve never been a “follower” and I don’t like the idea of being “followed” around by anyone.

As I was discussing my dilemma with my friend Art Munson at Over 50 Music, he suggested that I look into Face Book, which presented another problem. I’ve always seen Facebook as one of the places where you can delude yourself into thinking that you’re popular, but I found that it is one of the best places to make a reconnection.

Two months ago I decided I wanted to include a paragraph or two from people in my past to use in my forthcoming book “I Did It For A Song”, and through e-mails and Google I was able to locate 30 people. Exactly one month ago I joined Facebook and found 300 PEOPLE who I’ve since added as “friends”! Now with the recent addition of TWITTER to its pages I can follow everyone I know, everywhere they go, and read every message they send and/ or receive. DAMN, isn’t technology wonderful?

You have to excuse me, but it’s time to go on Facebook to check on all my pals. I wonder if Peter Greenberg’s back from Shanghai, mmm, Gary Stromberg says he saw a report on Fox news how bacon cures hangovers, Unsteady Freddy saw the Association perform, Bruce Garfield is up before the sun in London, Patti LaBelle is in the studio with Alicia Keys…..Looks like it’s gonna’ be a long night!
