It might be a lottery but it's still a big risk. I have security clearance, if I get a criminal record that's me and my company fucked; I'd rather not risk it, thanks. I realise that I may be an edge case.

Actually I think you and I might be talking at cross-purposes. I'm specifically talking about the risk of multi-sig transactions on EIM and AB; I regularly sent coin directly to Agora with no worry at all exactly because I knew that my safety was being taken care of in terms of specific plausible deniability. I wasn't buying nuffin but etizolam of dat market, honest guv.

Exclusive: Dutch Cops on AlphaBay ‘Refugees’

>Following today’s breaking news about U.S. and international authorities taking down the competing Dark Web drug bazaars AlphaBay and Hansa Market, KrebsOnSecurity caught up with the Dutch investigators who took over Hansa on June 20, 2017. When U.S. authorities shuttered AlphaBay on July 5, police in The Netherlands saw a massive influx of AlphaBay refugees who were unwittingly fleeing directly into the arms of investigators. What follows are snippets from an exclusive interview with Petra Haandrikman, team leader of the Dutch police unit that infiltrated Hansa.

It's because he's been there since about 1930. He started off on the equivalent salary of £15,000 but it's been increased each year due to inflation and length of service. That's all it is. Compounding.

If you add in employers national insurance and pension contributions then the cost to the licence fee payer will be in excess of half a million.

/£$€¥/3840 Pensions
The OFT have come out and said that many old (i.e. set up before 2001) pension schemes have high charges and offer savers poor value for money. They've also suggested a cap for auto-enrolment schemes, but it's going to be an almost meaningless gesture as you'd be very hard pressed to find a provider offering auto-enrolment terms with annual management charges greater than 1% anyway.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-24153012

The pension scheme I'm in at work (contribution: 5% employer, 5% employee gross) has management charges of 0.6%, which I'm alright with as it's less than I'd get if I was investing in collectives through an ISA.

However, I've put the charges and contribution details into Invidion's pension calculator for an idea of what I'd get when I'm 65, 40 years from now, and if my salary increases in line with National Average Earnings and I took the 25% tax-free lump sum I'd be looking at a pension in today's terms of 27.5% of my current salary. If I wanted a pension that would be about two-thirds of what I'm earning now then I'll need to contribute, assuming the employer contribution stays at 5%, 15% gross (12% net) of my salary every year for the next four decades. This does depend on what annuity rates will be like then and I'd also be getting the State Pension, as long as they haven't upped the age you receive it to 80 by then.

If it wasn't for the tax relief and my employer matching my contributions then I doubt I'd bother and I'd look into other ways to support myself while I'm in retirement. What about you lads? What are your thoughts on pensions? In my opinion to have any form of decent retirement income you're at the mercy of your employer offering a good pension scheme.

They'd still be unaffordable for many, especially bearing in mind they say the percentage you should be contributing to your pension is half your age plus a quarter of all salary increases.

What's getting a lot of coverage recently is a flexible State Pension age. The current State Pension age is 65 and the average male has a life expectancy of 21 years. If they have, say, a State Pension of £8,000 per annum that's £168,000 they'll be paid. If someone chooses to take it at age 60 instead then that £168,000 over 26 years is a reduced State Pension of £6,461 per annum.

It's not going to be enough to retire on, depending on their private provision, but could enable someone to cut down their hours or get a less stressful job.

The wheels have been in motion with this for a number of years already.

Automatic enrolment into a company pension scheme has simply replaced the Additional State Pension/SERPS/State Second Pension which used to be on top of the basic State Pension. The only substantial difference is the onus has been shifted from the government to the individual.

People had the facility to opt out of the additional State Pensions, or it might have been compulsory as part of occupational pension scheme membership; those in final salary schemes would have an element of their pension known as guaranteed minimum pension and those in money purchase schemes would have DSS contracted out rebates paid in the following April. What the new State Pension has done, as a bit of an oversimplification, is move from having a basic amount with additional on top to having the additional amount already factored in with a deduction for periods of contracting out.

It's largely young people who will be hardest hit by this, as the additional pension they would have been able to accrue would almost certainly be considerably greater than the maximum available under the new system. However most people don't understand pensions and have little interest in doing so and the government have used levels of obfuscation about the new State Pension that even the most unscrupulous pension providers and financial advisers would think twice about so have been able to get away with greatly weakening the State Pension for future generations. Those close to State Pension age at the time were barely affected by this, in part due to being more likely to be contracted out at some point, so were unlikely to kick up a fuss whereas young people were unable to contract out so had the scope for accruing much higher additional pensions that has now effectively been capped.

A Ponzi scheme is one where the returns are paid from deposits. The State Pension is paid out from the same pot that taxpayers pay into. Of course, that it's technically true doesn't mean "pensions are a Ponzi scheme" isn't an utterly dumb thing to say.

/pol/83112 The great British Brexit robbery: how our democracy was hijacked
Not sure if I should have put this in /boo/ but:

>A shadowy global operation involving big data, billionaire friends of Trump and the disparate forces of the Leave campaign influenced the result of the EU referendum

>This is Britain in 2017. A Britain that increasingly looks like a “managed” democracy. Paid for by a US billionaire. Using military-style technology. Delivered by Facebook. And enabled by us. If we let this referendum result stand, we are giving it our implicit consent. This isn’t about Remain or Leave. It goes far beyond party politics. It’s about the first step into a brave, new, increasingly undemocratic world.

So it seems a British defense contractor helped the Leave campaign. Cambridge Analytica exploited the system for Vote Leave to get away with funding that would have normally broken electoral rules. All bankrolled by a billionaire hedge fund manager. Welcome to plutocracy.

Don't be fucking ridiculous. Why are you even on about deporting Asians? Nobody except you is claiming the Asians who diddled in the likes of Rotherham are representative of all Joe's.

The simple fact is that the climate the lefties created enabled the likes of Rotherham to happen for so long. It's part of the reason why lefties are their own worst enemies and their actions were a major contributor to Brexit happening.

That's not necessarily true. The numbers that normally go with this claim come from a report that specifically deals with street grooming.

>The data submitted refers only to the ‘localised grooming’ model of child sexual exploitation and does not include online
grooming, trafficking of children into the UK, peer-on-peer abuse or other forms of sexual exploitation.
>This assessment cannot be seen as fully representative of the nature and scale of child sexual exploitation in the U.K., or, indeed, of the 'localised grooming' model.

http://cdn.basw.co.uk/upload/basw_101409-2.pdf

>In particular, the report raises concerns over its ethnic representation:
>"Caution should be taken in drawing conclusions about ethnicity due to the relatively small number of areas where agencies have been proactive around this particular type of crime. We do not draw national conclusions about ethnicity from the data available at this time because it is too inconsistent."

>We therefore need to be cautious about Keith Vaz's claim, as the source he uses explicitly warns against drawing any nationwide conclusions on the basis of its research.
>While both the HM Prison Service and CEOP datasets have problems associated with them, there is nevertheless some evidence to suggest that sex offenders are 'overwhelmingly white' in terms of the raw numbers.

Chester looks traditionally nice, trees, rivers and classical British architecture. Got some great views, but it's basically a big town. One of those cities that is a city by technicality rather than population. The whole cathedral thing.

You'll meet a lot of middle class softies here, nice people and all, but they treat weed like it's heroin, bitch about one another a lot, generally they can come across as a bit snobbish.

/v/21504 The 90s
Has anyone else noticed that over the past few months there's been a lot of 90s nostalgia "documentaries"? I swear I've seen 3 in the last few weeks.

Is there any reason for this? Has everyone decided that one of the most bland, unexciting decades has suddenly become amazing halcyon days?

It really is a pitch-perfect pisstake.

While we're on an obscure late-night vibe, does anyone remember Gaytime TV? It's amazing how far we've come in twenty-odd years.

The first five minutes talk about how this or that is the first ever such-and-such for gays and lesbians. I wonder if this is what they called the pink pound. "We've got a new perfume coming out, let's say it's the first one specifically for gays and it'll sell loads."

>I wonder if this is what they called the pink pound.

Very much so, but it marked a really important change for gay and lesbian people.

Back in 1995, Section 28 was still in force, a law stating that no local authority may "promote the teaching in any maintained school of the acceptability of homosexuality as a pretended family relationship". Homosexuality had been officially decriminalised in 1967, but gay men were still being arrested well into the 80s on charges of "outraging public decency". The age of consent wouldn't be equalised until 2000. The trauma of the AIDS epidemic was still very raw - just a few years previously, an HIV diagnosis was a death sentence. A lot of people saw a lot of friends die, eaten away by tumours and infections and god knows what.

As laughable as it seems now, the idea of a gay advert or a gay perfume was genuinely thrilling. Those little tokens of acceptance really meant something. The attitude of "your money is as good as anyone else's" marked a real sea change. We weren't quite normal yet, but we weren't perverts or plague carriers any more.

/b/411867 Grindr, Tinder, and other such apps
I downloaded Grindr recently to look for traps and femboys, and although there are some, the selection is very limited and I'm sure quite a few of the trannies are prostitutes. Is there a better place to look for traps and femboys?

It's also quite a revelation to see the stereotype of gay promiscuity manifest itself so concretely. My profile is completely blank and in one day I've had 10 messages.

The best thing about Grindr's design is that there's no facebook bullshit to faff around with and that it presents you with a grid of people arranged by their proximity to you. Is there anything like that for the straight dating scene or is everyone still using Tinder?

Dating and hook ups can blur a bit if you end up shagging and it doesn't go anywhere. I know I'm too awkward to go for a straight hookup and only really ask girls out for drinks to see how things progress once we meet in person.

/mph/3902 Car rental hire insurance/CDW/etc in the USA
Can someone PLEASE explain this?

I've booked a car hire through enterprise USA for a week in August in California.

Here's what I want to know (and no-one in either enterprise USA or UK can explain to me):

What are the differences in coverage if I book through Enterprise UK as opposed to Enterprise USA?

It seems that with my current US booking I'm covered for literally jack shit, but the policies and emails are worded so vaguely I'm sitting here with a throbbing headache trying to understand what the fuck is going on.

With my USA booking, what exactly am I covered for, and what do I need to purchase?

Can anyone please clarify? I feel like this isn't as complicated as I'm making it out to be; I'm just a spack.

Just buy third-party hire insurance. It's usually cheaper and normally has higher limits than whatever the first-party plan offers. They'll generally also prompt you for extra cover if you tell them you're going to the USA. This does come with the downside that the hire firm will insist on a massive deposit as a foreigner using a foreign card, and you'll have to pay them before the insurers will reimburse you.

This is what I'm worried about. How much will I have to pay them? The full value of the damage? An excess? Having phoned up both the UK and the US they seem reluctant to tell me.

You'll be covered for almost nothing in the US, unless you tick the collision damage waiver box, its usually a few extra dollars a day. I think you just have to suck it up.

/g/25958 Abode's creative suite
I bought the old CS6 a few years back, I'm getting good value from it, but is it worth upgrading to CC2017? I don't really wanna pay monthly, and I'm hearing more and more about the cool new updated versions. So basically is it worth me shelling out?

Thanks

The monthly deal is quite good - it is worth getting the subscription I think just so that the security holes are updated regularly.
