Inflood of old messages

Feb 2 11:02 [raw]

What's up with the influx of old messages, which are sometimes even a week or more old? Is someone recomputing the PoW for these messages and flooding them out as new ones? It's also interesting that the repeated messages are ALL shitposts.

Are the trolls now getting so fucking lazy, that they just repost old stuff? Has Bitmessage sunken so low that even the quality of the trolls is now dropping towards zero?

When I upgraded bitmessage old messages were re-synced or re-sent. Once all sent messages were recomputed. Three times all objects for the last 28 days were downloaded again.

Feb 6 11:02 [raw]

There is a snotgobbler who is doing it on purpose.

Feb 6 11:33 [raw]

Is there a way to mitigate this so my peer stops re-downloading and decrypting all objects?

Feb 6 11:36 [raw]

I don't think so. Just delete them.

> When I upgraded bitmessage old messages were re-synced or re-sent. Can you perhaps describe in a bit more detail which versions you upgraded from/to and how did you do the upgrade? Peter Surda Bitmessage core developer

Depends on the level of duplication. You can usually just keep a message and new messages will be compared against it (actually the hash of the signatures are compared rather than the subject/body - there was some person/group sending cryptocurrency exchange rates that complained some of their quotes were considered duplicates)

upgraded from 4.4 to current master and dev branch deleted /src and replaced with new /src in both instances had the problems

> upgraded from 4.4 to current master and dev branch > > deleted /src and replaced with new /src > > in both instances had the problems It's possible that this happens once. I changed the storage type for certain binary types as they were being stored as text and this created some problems, like dumping/importing the sql data. This could create duplicates. After the "duplicates" are downloaded, all should be fine. I would like to add a data migration to initialisation before 0.6.3, which would avoid duplicates. However this would make the local data backwards incompatible with older versions (if you downgrade, they will refuse to start). But thanks for reporting this, I thought it may happen but haven't actually experienced it. Peter Surda Bitmessage core developer

Since upgrading to most recent pull v0.6.3.2, I am still having this problem. Every message in sent messages list now shows "doing work necessary to send message." Perhaps that exploit is still open?

Perhaps that exploit is still open? That sounds like it's resending messages that haven't been acknowledged. Peter Surda Bitmessage core developer

> Maybe because sending to someone who is activating dontsendack Stop trying to mimimize the crappiness of the software, lickspittle. No, EVERY MESSAGE, to all chans, and all private addresses. every every did you read the word EVERY? EVERY MESSAGE GET IT? Stop trying to mimimize the crappiness of the software, lickspittle.

Trying to get stuff fixed by cursing at the dev. Pure genius.

Feb 15 16:03 [raw]

Stop whining. If you don't like Bitmessage then don't use it.

Feb 15 17:59 [raw]

Please write bit more details, for example what was the previous version you had, what platform do you have, if you're using the portable mode, and so on. Messages to chans don't expect an ack so it's unusual that it's resent. Peter Surda Bitmessage core developer

Cursing? There are no cursewords here.

Feb 18 17:32 [raw]

Ok I think I found the issue. It looks like a display error, it will erroneously show all messages as being doing PoW instead of the one that actually is. If you switch to another folder and then back, it should be showing all ok. I'll put it on the todo list. Peter Surda Bitmessage core developer

Feb 18 18:16 [raw]

Ah, so it's just a glitch, not actually redoing all the messages. Got it.
