The dark patterns are strong in this one:



This could really have been a happy story. They have (as GDPR demands) made the default for the non-necessary cookies to be disabled. Once you are about to close the dialogue however: there's a big blue "OK"-like button, and a dimmed barely readable text. Which one to click? Chose wisely!

If you didn't pay attention, you just enabled all tracking by uninformed consent.

This is why we can not trust web site operators. Especially not when they depend on passing your behavioural data to the mining companies for income. And even the ones you wouldn't think needed that extra money still does it. Not even for the money, but because it is easier than not tracking you. That's how shit the web has become!

So be sure to block everything you can. Block ads, block trackers, block scripts — block the web if that's what we need to get our humanity back.

Eg oppfordrar alle til støtte nabopuben eller favorittpuben sin og tipse rundhanda om dei kan. Utelivet er sosial smurning og lim samstundes som dei held byane unna verte blokker fylt med grinebitande og mannevonde nervevrak. Det beste med pandemien er kor mange som no sett genuint pris på den luksusen det er kunne gå ut og sleppe frå seg kvardagen nokre timer. Din lokale bartender er dårlegare betalt enn psykologen, men hjelper like fullt dugeleg på den mentale helsa. Det var det heile.

Kva for offentlege «source forges» liker folk? Eg brukte ha ting på Pagure, men så sette RedHat det i rein vedlikehaldsmodus. Dermed kom eg meg bort før det berre vart trist. Codeberg verkar fin, har nokon testa det? sr.ht ønsker eg ikkje bruke sia det i praksis er eit einmannsshow og dermed vel sårbart, sånn utover at eg personleg tykkjer Drew DeVault kan vera i meste laget ein del gonger.

lemmy.ml/c/china is a group platformed by @LemmyDev 's flagship instance that seems to be a community of tankies that don't acknowledge genocides of the past as well as the cultural genocide of the Uighurs.

One of the creators of Lemmy @nutomic is from what I can tell a communist who's a major player of this group.

Maybe not surprising to some, but probably something people like to know before engaging in the lemmy project and community.

About the latest variation of carbon capture Bioenergy Carbon Capture and Storage (BECCS) Jason Hickel has calculated: "In order for BECCS to remove as much carbon as the IPCC scenarios assume, we will need to create biofuel plantations covering an area two to three times the size of India, gobbling up about two-thirds of the planet's arable land."

The wildest forensic stories are the ones where you pull at a loose thread and discover that you've got hold of a the tip of the tentacle of some kind of cthulhoid monster from the depths of hell. That's the story of Eliminalia, global fraudsters for hire.

The story starts with Qurium, a secure hosting provider that focuses on at-risk civil society groups, the kinds of people who piss off dictators with their own snatch-squads they can use against their enemies.

What I like about the Vivaldi web browser is that it feels like the team is actually trying to make a better, for some value of that word, browser; not just Chrome with some shtick added/removed. I get useful stuff I want to have straight out of the box, not just another surveillance capitalism tour de force, Cloudflare dependency or cryptocurrency shrill.
