The China firewall is extreme.
However, there is technology at Youtube (Google) and Facebook to audit ISIS content. Yet, they don't use it for racist posts.

This is not motivated from some sort of benevolent place of free speech, but IT MAKES THEM MONEY.

That's truly sick. That's why you should encourage people to leave their platforms.

A little girl at work asked me if I wanted to know what her favorite #dinosaur was... I squatted down to her eye level (I'm 6'4" and she's a 5 year old) and said "I want all of you kids to listen to me carefully, I don't care what I'm doing or how old I am, I will ALWAYS want to know what somebodies favorite dinosaur is."

Good to know that calling out bigots on the bird site is enough to be "temporarily limited" 💩

grubhub thinks a strong password shouldn't contain your username or the part before the @ in an email

which is kind of a problem when your email is a single letter, because they literally just do a simple substring :angery:

The more into I get, the more pissed off I am about what's done with my information that I wasn't told about.

Just today, I found my voter profile that has my full name, age, full home address, my political party (unaffiliated), race, gender, registration date, neighbours, as well as all that same information on my relatives.

I am livid. This information should NOT be public where anyone can just search for it.


@erikstl I agree. Been using Signal for years, and like that I can use WiFi/data with other signal users, but it falls back to SMS for everyone else.

banning developers from describing their electron-wrapped website as a "desktop app"

@thomasfuchs now there's a hoopy frood that knows where his towel is

I've come down with the latest viral respiratory infection that's sweeping the nation.

Like some kind of eldritch horror, I appear to be leaking mucus from every orifice in my face.

Please send a doctor, or maybe an old priest and a young priest

This is a next-level anti-GDPR dark pattern from Forbes.

I selected that I only wanted the “required cookies” (no cookies should be required to read a text article.) “This may take up to a few minutes to process.” 🤔

@zajo a silly amount of decongestant helps, but yeah not flying would be best

I took a plane yesterday, with a head cold and sinus pressure.

I do NOT recommend it.
