And for users to be programatically redirected away from the GNU site to the Microsoft site is ethically criminal, and foreboding institutional death."

It's about time we stopped buying into the propaganda phrase "ad blockers", and started calling user-protection tools like #uBlockOrigin and #NoScript what they are; spy blockers. If I display ads on my website using HTML and CSS, spy blockers won't block those. As far as they know, the text, images, audio, or video that make up the ads could be anything. So what's really being blocked is not ads, but tracking. Thanks to the authors of this site, for pointing this out:

Finally a comprehensive #dictionary corpus: https://folkets-lexikon.csc.kth.se/folkets/folkets.html
What's more: it is actively developed, has a web application, can be downloaded in XDXF format for offline use (works with #GoldenDict) and is CC-BY-SA licensed.
I don't like it at all. Just trying to guess will it be Microsoft Rust or some G# kind of shit.
