30th-Apr-2010 03:24 pm - A heads-up
Gift and Curse
Since many survivors protect the information available about them, I wanted to give you the heads-up about a new service: spokeo.com

Spokeo.com is an online phonebook and information resource, which gathers information from all sorts of places. It contains information about addresses, phone numbers (if you're publicly listed), and information from social networking sites (including photos and interests).

If you want to remove yourself from spokeo.com's listings:

I don't know how many of you watch ljsecret (there are often triggering secrets/images), but there was one secret posted that mentions a website called GivesMeHope (www.givesmehope.com for those who may not be able to see the HTML :).

It shows the beauty in humanity and I thought I'd pass it along to anyone who didn't know about it.

Yay, Angela Shelton was interviewed on North Carolina public radio.

Potentially triggery but the interviewer, Frank Stasio really gets it and asks great questions. Moving interview.

I finally ran into the bulletin posted about earlier this month:

Cut for triggering title of bulletin, rape/sexual abuseCollapse )

Thank you! I hope that you all avoid having this end up on your myspace!

Joss Whedon (creator of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, Firefly and an Anti-Abuse activitist)

has teamed up with

Equality Now (international organization fighting multiple forms of abuse of women)

for a special world wide screening of the movie Serenity which was a continuation of the Firefly television series.

The nearest screening for me is several hours distant but I'm going to try and find a way.

the following link to the event page does contain mentions of forms of abuse of several types, while not graphic it may be triggering for someCollapse )
6th-Jun-2007 04:51 am - Some helpful extentions
schrodinger's lolcat
I'm not quite ready to get into my own story yet, however, I was browsing the extensions for the new firefox and found two that might be very useful for those with PTSD. I'm not downloading them for myself as I mainly have audio triggers (typically men yelling upset), but I figured that they might be useful to those in the comm that have keywords that trigger them.

ProCon Latte

Filter web pages containing explicit content based on text on websites.

ProCon is a content filter for the Firefox browser. It can filter any kind of material (pornography, gambling, hacking, cracking, etc...), it can also block all traffic, making sure that only desired websites (set in the Whitelist) can be accessed, and includes a profanity filter, all *like* a parental control filter.

ProCon also has password protection in order to keep *others* from changing the settings.

Blocksite



BlockSite is an extension, which automagically blocks websites of your choice. Additionally, this extension will disable all hyperlinks to these websites, by just displaying the link text without the clicking functionality. This extension should by no means be used for parental control or access control purposes, just because it isn't secure and can easily be disabled or even removed. This extension adds the site blocking functionality that was removed from Adblock Plus.

GENERAL USAGE
You can add and/or remove websites, you don't want to visit ever
again, via the BlockSite Preferences. You can open this window
by clicking on the options button of BlockSite in Tools > Add-ons menu, or by
clicking on the Preferences item in the context menu of the extension
in the Extension Manager.

more info on BlockSite under the cutCollapse )

16th-May-2007 07:24 pm - My Survivor Site
survive
My message board is getting kind of quiet, and we'd love to have some new members. If you'd like a 2nd place to post about things that is safe like on here, please find the web address behind the cut. Please note that no one can "see" the board unless they are registered and logged in. This is for safety matters. The main website also has many important survivor information as well as links to helpful sites, this one included! I placed the addressed behind the cut so that those who are not interested may skip on by!

Thank you! Love, Eden
