Be a shame if someone were to script this out and publish a tool.

You know, it would be a real shame if people understood that an inexpensive VPN or proxy service can make it appear that your IP originates in Texas and allow you access sites that are restricted to in-state IP addresses.

It would also be just awful if people knew that you can generate six fake Texas address in seconds at:
coolgenerator.com/address-gene

I probably shouldn't mention that you can download a list of thousands of fake names in minutes at:
fakenamegenerator.com/order.ph

I seriously should not bring up that fake, one time email address can be had at:
throwawaymail.com/

shitty address scaper 

@thegibson

curl -s -F 'country_full=United States' -F 'country=us' -F 'statefull=Texas' -F 'city=' https://coolgenerator.com/address-generator | sed 's/<span/\n<span/g' | grep '^<span>' | head -n 24 | sed 's|</.*$||g' | sed 's|<span>||g' | paste -d ' ' - - - -

re: shitty proxy scaper 

@thegibson

wget -qO- http://free-proxy.cz/en/proxylist/region/Texas/all/ping | tr '<' '\n' | grep -A 10000 '^table ' | grep -B 10000 '^/table' | grep -A 10000 '^tbody' | sed 's/[^>][^>]*>//g' | grep . | grep -A 3 ^document.write | grep -v -- -- | cut '-d"' -f2 | paste - - - - | xargs -n3 bash -c 'printf "%s://%s:%s/\n" "$2" $(base64 -d <<< $0) "$1"' | tr 'A-Z' 'a-z'

this outputs proxy URLs in the format that curl's --preproxy argument takes. They /will/ rate-limit you and ask for captchas if you're using a proxy. (lol) so, if you wget the page, save it and use the stored version. maybe use a different user-agent, or just save the page from your browser and then cat the list at the start of the pipeline instead of wget.

re: shitty name generator 

@thegibson

cat <(shuf first-names.txt | head -n1) <(shuf last-names.txt | head -n1) | tr 'A-Z' 'a-z' | sed 's/\(.\)\(.*\)$/\u\1\2/g' | paste '-d ' - -

first-names.txt and last-names.txt can be gotten from:

re: shitty name generator 

@epoch You realize you are missing your calling in life as an arms dealer...

re: shitty name generator 

@thegibson what makes you think I'm not an arms dealer?

@epoch What one really MUSTN'T do is download the Texas map from download.geofabrik.de/north-am
Download osmium-tools
Run osmium tags-filter -o out5.osm texas-latest.osm n/addr:housenumber*
to get all points with addresses and then parse the XML into real addresses. That would be ever so beastly!

@trebach @epoch @thegibson oh this is the best.

its a forminator plugin on wp and likely crm backend, so filtering requests is probably mostly just an annoyance at this point. :-/

@trebach @epoch @thegibson i ran a site that received hundreds of spam inputs a day and spent maybe an hour a month updating filters to get rid of the garbage, mostly only sql

re: img2text 

@trebach @epoch @thegibson
Hopefully not repeating the obvious, but it's hosted and registered on godaddy and violates it's rules: godaddy.com/help/reporting-abu

and forminator is opensource plugins.trac.wordpress.org/rep

keep seeing vice.com/en/article/z3x9ba/tik boosted by people that boost this post. Figure it might be easier (for those of you that have phones) to get your LAN to switch proxies for your phones than getting a mess of shell-script going.
