Since when did it become OK for software to try and pull a Carthāgō dēlenda est on its users?

I hate how technology has become a means for companies to remotely manipulate u̶s̶e̶r̶s̶ herds of assets instead of a tool of enlightenment and liberation.

It didn't use to be like this.

@bjonte @Retrograde If this is a web site thing and not some mobile thing, one thing I've started doing is saying "yes" when the web site itself asks, then permanently denying permission when the browser asks. That usually keeps them from ever asking again.
