Derek Harvey said...

oooh la la. I have a Tom Ford tie. The Beyonce post is missing? Maybe her pal Hollywood Dime ratted enty out lolll

Sherry said...

Stoddens bewbs probably make her a bit unsteady.

So where did that Beyonce post go? Am I missing something here? I thought there was one and then my computer went dead. I booted up the other and suddenly that disappeared.

LottaColada said...

@Sherry, the illuminati made it disappear.

Derek Harvey said...

@Sherry its still there..

CocoaBeachBunny said...

What Derek said, Sherry. I just saw it too.

#teamdanica

I wouldn't wear a $26k jersey with someone else's name on it. For $26,000, it better have MY name on it.

Please make the Stodden go away by not ever again publishing a photo of the Porn Iguana riding a bicycle in a swimsuit. 'Ktxbye.

Suzyanne Guzicki said...

Bruce Willis peen print!

Jason Blue Eyes said...

So Stodden was the person who stole my nine year old niece's bike.

LoMo said...

Candice cameron is skinny, but somehow I only see the slightly chubby version oh her... :(( whats wrong w/ my eyesight..? brain???

Sherry said...

Oh so it from yesterday. Sometimes blinds show up after I've looked at everything. It's really weird. I never saw this at all yesterday.

CocoaBeachBunny said...

Stodden's body is way too imbalanced for her to safely attempt to ride a bike! :-/

discoflux said...

I covet Diana Agron's shoes.

Count Jerkula said...

Winnie - I am already board with her being papped every day leaving practice. If she is this desperate for attention, she needs a wardrobe malfunction, stat. Like titty fall out of a wife beater or something.

Agron

Willis' wife

Jason Blue Eyes said...

Dianna does look rather delish in this photo.

Harry Knuckles said...

Dianna Agron just getting back from church.

Danica had a way prettier face back in her Winnie days. Not so pretty now. Plus she's a lot smarter then me. Don't like smart girls.

Massive G said...

Why the fuck is that nigger on televison?

8=====D aka Lil Tool. KermitGosnellKnobJockey said...

26 grant for a jersey? Unless murder inc blackmailed the seller and she got it for free, nobody should have it if it isn't made of unicorn's skin.

Eros said...

26 k for a top? Lol no thanks. Love the look though. Looks like something I would wear.

Paint Chips said...

Candace Cameron Bure - rhymes with bouquet as in Hyacinth Bucket.

T. E. Cuz said...

winnie cooper, those abs!! looking great!!

urban chaos said...

Danica's abs!! Fab!!
Her dance partner screams douche though..

Leekalicious said...

@Paint Chips
Hyacinth from Keeping up Appearances - one of my favorite shows of all time - so funny.

Paint Chips said...

Leekalicious, yep - so pretentious.

mooshki said...

Aww, why'd you use that picture of Dianna Agron instead of the one with Amy Schumer sitting next to her? Schumer >>>> Agron

Alexstrasza said...

I guess Blossom didn't apply the skills she learned on What Not to Wear afterall.

canadachick said...

WTF Stodden......holy hell thats all shades of wrong

Jason Blue Eyes said...

I still can't get past the fact Winnie Cooper swapped spit with Avril last year.

Masssive.

Renoblondee said...

I wonder if Willis will have another girl?

Erik said...

JFC, why is Bruce Willis procreating again?

Susannah Leigh Murray said...

I'm pretty sure Stodden would be used to being on her knees so no biggie ��

Sherry said...

Suzyanne Guzicki - Jeebus holy CHRIST..Anyone else take a look at Bruce..That almost rivals the Hammaconda!

__-__=__ said...

Who would breed with Bruce after the fug he produced with Demi. Those girls have his face, sadly.

It's a Tom Ford jersey! Of course it's made of unicorn skin!!

Lady Heisenberg said...

@Count- have you heard the rumblings that Brad Pitt will be on S2 of True Detective?!

Jeff Macauley said...

Are you sure that's not Mamie Van Doren? Oh, wait. Mamie would never fall off of her bike.

Aoife said...

"The Bouquet (Bucket) residence. The lady of the house speaking." On her beautiful slimline phone of course. :)

One of the best comedies ever.

Brad Pitt on "True Detective" would be awesome.

TalksTooMuch said...

Danica McKellar looks fantastic! Wow. Dayum even

I hear that circus song whenever Courtney Stodden is shown, I worry about her sometimes, but mostly I just want her off my lawn

Dang it, Sherry! You made me look!!

Count Jerkula said...

@LadyH: That would be cool. I only find Pitt annoying when he is in tabloids.

****WARNING: THIS IS A LONG RESPONSE TO A QUESTION @LOWKEY ASKED ME. PLEASE SCROLL DOWN IF YOU ARE NOT INTERESTED****

A few days ago, after the Great CDaN Bee Swarm of March 2014, people were discussing which user names they believed were operated by the same author. I made some offhand remark that in a lot of cases, grammatical, syntactical and thematic patterns could potentially be triangulated by the types of programs (CAQDAS) used by qualitative researchers studying rhetorical/literary works, sociolinguistics, narratives, and other forms of textual analyses. @LowKey asked me for info/sources and I said I would follow up, because I had to ask some experts first. So here it goes.

I have polled a dozen or so grad students, postdocs and professors from neuropsychology, Comp Lit/English, criminology/law, computer science and various social sciences. A few study online communities and trolling behaviors specifically.

Overall, this research has not been done yet on a big scale, but it IS in the process of being developed. This research is relatively new, as you would imagine, and it has been relatively confined to the private sector and government/law enforcement agencies thus far. Academia is just starting to catch on. But fuck yes, it is theoretically possible and this vein of inquiry is based on a lot of assumptions that have been empirically supported across various literatures. Forensic linguistics is a whole damn field on its own, and it is gaining a lot of traction recently. Here are links to the very few sources on troll detection methods out there:

Academics have only produced a limited amount of research on trolls and troll detection methodologies, such as these studies, which as you can see, have all only JUST come out:

GALAN-GARCIA ET AL., 2014

Another interesting thing to note is that a lot of the research is skewed specifically towards cyber-bullying, rather than mere trolling. It is my understanding that similar programs, like BULLY TRACER have also been developed.

A similar project was also recently conducted in the UK, by researchers like
CAMBRIA ET AL., 2010, which rely on sentic computing programs to conduct textual analyses.

Some private sector advances have also been spearheaded recently by corporations like
XBOX . Social media sites are also working on these types of detection programs.

Lady Heisenberg said...

In sum, YES, it is absolutely possible to use textual analyses software to assess the likelihood that multiple posts are being written by the same author, but these studies are new and relatively limited in their scope. Setting up a project like this would totally be feasible, and I hope that one of the people I talked to actually sets it up in the future. I would LOVE to see this shit happen. But they better give last author credit or at least send a thanks to @LadyH and @LowKey. LOL.

Based off what I have gathered, here is what we think future researchers should try. One could code online posts and run it through qualitative textual analysis programs like Dedoose, which identifies patterns and themes across texts. This formulation is based on the assumption that even if a troll assumes multiple identities, who talk about different topics or attempt to mimic different dialects, they will still have some sort of underlying writing patterns that may be detectable only due to technological advancements. Thus, there are a few important things you would specifically be trying to triangulate hits on:
*Grammatical, syntactical and thematic patterns
*Word combinations/patterns and certain types of slang words
*Certain spelling/grammatical errors (i.e. this has been common in criminal cases relying on forensic linguistics, like the Zodiac, who infamously misspelled "eggs" as "aigs")
*The contexts in which trolls appear, support certain posters, or troll certain posters, because authors tend to get irritated by the same users or topics, which will draw them out

But equally important to studying whether this kind of technology can confirm multiple identities to one author is that these analyses include some sort of assessment into the reliability coefficients of this design. In other words, a program may be able to predict the likelihood that two texts were written by the same author, but how accurate is this prediction empirically? The other biggest thing we would have to consider is that this type of analyses would be very difficult, if not impossible, to do without a pretty sophisticated computer coding system that learns as it goes. I do worry that programs like Dedoose may not be as effective with analyzing certain types of texts. However, effective, sophisticated and adaptive programs not only exist, but they have been held up legally in courts. They are used extensively by law enforcement agencies monitoring the communications of criminal organizations and suspected terrorists, but unfortunately. they are not available for academic or public use. I would love to know what the fuck those evil geniuses have came up with.

Lady Heisenberg said...

But more generally, this line of research will bring about a lot of valid criticisms that CDaNers like @Count pointed out. (1) It first needs to be specified what we are defining as a troll, and what kinds of trolls you are trying to run content analyses software on. Lots of different types with lots of different motives. (2) It's not just psych profiles, as alleged by researchers like BUCKELS ET AL., 2014 which centers on alleged dark traits, or writing styles that will matter for trolling, but it might be more important to have them define their use of internet space, because that would affect how they write. Assuming that trolling is necessarily linked within some sort of psychological disposition already pre-assumes that trolls are trolls, whereas this kind of a perspective assumes that we don't know what's going on until we investigate it. These considerations were outlined to me by a grad student who is trying to set up a dissertation about how individual understandings of technology and the use of a certain internet space will be linked with concepts of real and assumed online identities.

Sorry for the crazy length. When someone asks me a question, I try to be as thorough as possible, and I was really intrigued by looking into this. I am sorry that Heisenberg blew up this page y'all, and thanks to @LowKey for the food for thought. It was a fun little project to look into the past few days.

Kimba said...

Lady H, I've got one eye open of drunkiness...
But I did get through it; so more analysis is needed, before we "know" our trolls. Thanks for the diatribe!
Tell us more aboot the dark traits?

laura ramona said...

@LadyH interesting. I would love to hear the psichological traits of the trolls.

Steampunk Jazz said...

@laura, just remember the speech they give on every Criminal Minds, white male, loner, etc :-D though I think the interwebz has given rise to more female perps simply because it isn't physical but can kill/destroy.

MBK said...

Oh, Blossom...I realize you're a genius, but can't you just try a little?

fancyscreenname said...

.mbk
I was thinking the same thing yesterday. Lol

crila16 said...

Candice and Danika are absolutely beautiful.

Lady Heisenberg said...

EVERY TROLL LOOKS LIKE THIS LOL @Steampunk

Hahahaha naw, in all seriousness though, the Buckels study found that computer users that engage in trolling (defined in a malicious sense) typically tend to score higher for the so-called Dark Tetrad traits. Trolls scored higher on a number of personality traits examined: Machiavellianism, psychopathy, narcissism, extraversion, disagreeableness and sadism. On the other hand, I believe that trolling behaviors are also linked to lower self-esteem ratings. However, this line of research is also new and needs to be elaborated more on in the future.

Thanks to those that bothered to read and give feedback. I'm glad some found all that useful.

Pink Cashmere said...

OMG! I busted out laughing at the pic of a titty falling out of a wife beater! Thank you.

LowKey said...

Late to the party but I got it, Lady!
I thank you so much for this! I'll have lots to read this weekend!
I'll also post this on Friday's thread to make sure you see it.
