@dump_stack @blacklight447 but in the end, that’s all I have to say to you. Having read this conversation you’re not arguing in good faith and don’t have any intention on seeing the absolute absurdity of your arguments.

This elitist attitude is poison when it comes to spreading privacy and informing people how to make better choices.

And I can assure you that the choices you make are probably “extreme” and so useless it actually makes you more identifiable.

@dump_stack @blacklight447 it’s not the E2EE or anything related that broke the trust in Wire. It’s the fact they hid their move to the US, the sale, and then when caught said they didn’t care what users thought and that their concern was to be the next Skype. Everyday users are not their priority and they felt no responsibility to disclose any information to them. Can’t trust a company who openly says it keeps secrets it doesn’t want free users to know.

@dump_stack @blacklight447 sorry but this is such elitist crap that drives people away from learning about or being a apart of the privacy community. You can be on Linux and give up far more of your privacy than a smarter privacy focused user on Mac.

Just choosing an OS doesn’t make you safe, you still have to use common sense and take measures to ensure you’re protecting yourself.

Do you use and enjoy Tusky for Mastodon on Android? Please go give the app a review on the Play Store—it has been review-bombed by Gab users for having a backbone and not connecting to Gab.

"i'll take a non-response as a 'yes'"

That's a statement made in bad faith and not how any serious journalism is done.

You can take my non-response as an indication that I don't respect you or your faux-tech publication.

You can listen to me on @SouthpawPod discussing parenting and reactionary atheism. As well as discussing Marxism, anarchism, and more.
