“For now” - This #news headline from CNN may help you realize the importance of using #privacy-centric and #encrypted software & services.

Using systems that do not track you in the first place ensures that your meta information is unavailable to give to authorities.

Using systems that encrypt your data properly make it harder for state actors to target you.

I was just denied access and threatened with arrest again by #seattlepolice for not having ID while trying to get to my home in #CapitolHill. They claim they were given new orders this morning.

@hund
Do you know if there is any more privacy-aware alternative tool for this?

While the person seemed eager to avoid any confrontation and close the issue, I can see the value in the practice of collecting usage data. Nobody seems to bring up any alternative, tho. Are we really forced to use these services?

The EARN IT act is unconstitutional and evil. Subvert it by all means possible.

I know I've mentioned it recently but, I'll say it again: I'm glad to see all the new faces and introductory toots for all the new members. A "thanks" to all of our existing members and vets for helping field some of the questions and welcome the new members. It's very helpful and much appreciated. 😀
