Inspired by (sad) reality...
More seriously I am afraid of even having fiends these days. Even if I try hard to protect my privacy everyone else could potentially expose my personal data to awful spies whose services most people use in their everyday lives.
I don't want to live in this society anymore...
@madargon You're not alone on any of this.
@chris fortunately friend circle I am in touch with mostly use IRC, Signal or any other "safe" channels to communicate. But we are rather hardcore nerds so it is not norm. I invited few people in my own Matrix instance too when it was most convenient option.
@madargon I regularly see Y*uTube recommendations on topics my g*ogle phone friends text me about all the time, even when I don’t have a Y*uTube account and use moderate blockers etc
@data is it possible to get Y*uTube recommendations when someone doesn't have account?
*goes to check because haven't use Y*uTube directly for long time...*
@madargon yes if you just visit the site and browse, I’m counting what comes up as a recommendation
@madargon I will take her hand in marriage.
@madargon I feel you. Same. but presevere. Fascism was defeated and so will coronafascism
@madargon this sure makes me happy that my phone is AOSP and unable to connect to any services outside of itself.
