You are crazier that I thought :D

Going through every single post I posted to mark it with a sad face is a move that I wasn't expecting. How old are you? fifteen? 

Just for your information, I never ever marked any of your posts. I simply don't do that. The only move I do is to like it if I do, but there is no way I will select any of those stupid faces to mark a post. Seriously, someone is playing with you big time. 

I don't care if you keep doing this childish thing, it makes me laugh so you can carry on. Just think about that I am showing myself plainly with every move, and if I don't like something I will tell you straight away with a message, there is no way I am going to add a sad face to a post.

You have pissed off so many people that now they are playing with you. Well deserved because you are a w4nker, but Detective don't attack the wrong person because that will hurt you even more.

I wonder if an extension can monitor you keystrokes while you're trading?  Scary stuff guys

Remember this is a largely unmoderated forum that lets you post attachments in BAT format (which is a kind of file that executes commands on a Windows system) so don't trust a f*king thing.  BE SAFE - the guys on here are NOT here to help you.

Anyone that knows a little bit of JavaScript can see that the script is just going through the DOM images and hides the section that are included into.

"keystrokes" "hacking" :D  :D :D :D :D :D :D 

You are funny after all.

I DO know a "bit" about Javascript. And it's entirely possible for an extension to log keystrokes, and mouse movements (look at services like Hotjar & CrazyEgg & Grammarly that have built entire businesses around Javascript doing this on people's websites/browsers). It's also possible for a script to trigger both keystrokes and clicks on your behalf too.

And while a script might not currently do it, extensions and remote scripts can change/"update" at anytime (and web browsers don't even alert you of the updates (or the changes in them)). Even if the code is open-source on GitHub - it's often the case that it's not downloaded from there and the version in the Extension/PlayStore may have had modifications/additions done to it (legitimately [usage tracking] or illegitimately [keytracking/session scrapping]).

If you don't entirely trust the developer/business who created a browser extension - don't install it.

If you know about Javascript just review the code and you will see that is completely harmless. 

If you see any danger on it you have seen too many hacker movies.

Someone that does know about Javascript does not write a post like you do, they simply check the code and know what is doing.

Please post the code and I'll review it.

It is posted already , you are posting in the wrong post. This post is just nonsense from beginning to the end. Check my profile , you will see it there

I see it now. Great script, but I think you'll find most people will want to be using it to block you for being a confrontational hot-head that's too quick to respond with a put down than add value to this community.

var users = ['jlz'];

They are free to use it that way if they wish so, No problem.

You are the one that is calling others hot-head.

    • Launchpool should be the most common but I feel POOLx is more innovative earning product on Bitget. The idea of staking  your assets at a higher APR  to mine newly launched tokens is a good earning opportunity that i think is not common in other platform but would wish other CEXes would emulate such concept.
    • Centralized exchanges are often more popular than decentralized exchanges due to their user-friendly interfaces, ease of use, and protection against scams that can occur when interacting with various dApps on decentralized platforms. Navigating decentralized exchanges (DEXs) can be complex, which adds to the appeal of centralized alternatives. While DEXs offer several ways to earn passive income, such as staking, centralized exchanges have also introduced various opportunities for users to earn in a simpler and more straightforward manner. Some notable products that have proven efficient and beneficial for users include Launchpool, PoolX, Shark Fin, Range Sniper, Dual Investment, and others. Personally, I favor PoolX and Launchpool because they provide rewards on an hourly basis and the entry barrier is quite low for everyone to take advantage of. Shark Fin, Smart Trend, Range Sniper, and Dual Investment cater to investors with different investment goals and risk management preferences. One reason I particularly like Shark Fin is that it guarantees investors' capital while offering significant returns. All these products are available on the Bitget exchange, providing users with opportunities to earn passive income, especially in uncertain market conditions. I am interested in learning about other products you guys use to earn more crypto on centralized exchanges. Let's discuss
    • Hello IG Team @KoketsoIG Could you please provide a definitive update on the status of the TradingView integration? Many of us have been eagerly awaiting this feature for nearly two years, and it’s becoming increasingly frustrating to not have a clear timeline or concrete information. Many users have already expressed their concerns and the inconvenience of having to switch between brokers due to the lack of this integration. This delay has even caused some of us to move parts of our trading activities to other platforms that offer seamless TradingView integration. We understand that technical challenges can arise, but considering the significant time that has passed and the fact that smaller brokers have managed to implement this feature, it's perplexing why a company of IG’s stature is still unable to provide it. If there are specific technical hurdles or a projected timeline, we would appreciate transparency on these matters. The ability to trade directly from TradingView charts is a crucial feature for many of us, as it significantly enhances our trading efficiency and overall user experience. If this integration is not feasible in the near future, could you kindly inform us so we can make informed decisions about our trading strategies and platforms?
