Because car alarm manufactorers believe that the car of this sucker is everyone's business? "ALARM!!! Everyone who can hear it, catch the thief!"

@TooTankhaMooN Today I noticed that Merriam-Webster dictionary app on my tablet stopped playing pronunciations of words: "You need network connection blah-blah-blah". After looking through the PiHole logs it turned out that when I try to play a pronunciation, the app sends a request to the domain clients3.google.com. I have no idea what is it, but after whitelisting this domain the problem disappeared.
Fuck, Google is everywhere, really annoying.

As a person living in Russia I would say contrary.
Actually, my daily drivers are Searx and DuckDuckGo and I've already forgotten when I used Google the last time. Yandex? I never used it in my life.

i will give you 2 examples that comes in my mind
1) every os works with plain text DNS querying over port 53 wich is visible over the wire from your router near your dns server every third party including your DNS will know if you use firefox as a browser your os (either is ubuntu/arch/artix/obsd) due to the fact every os check from time to time ntp servers something trivial like this server 0.arch.pool.ntp.org iburst
Firefox/chromium telemetry will bang your dns as well unveil what browser 1/2

using encrypted dns would hide all those info or you can change those queries to something more generic like server 1.europe.pool.ntp.org, but when you update your machine you''ll query dns for something like this
archlinux.mirror.pcextreme.nl
2) will provide an prt
so how the heck privacy is not security? forget about that stupid ancient "axiom" "privacy is not security" it's dumber than you can imagine

Exorcised search engine. Hmm looks like swisscow search engine when you filter out
microbsoft-19/google-19 it acts as close to normal.

@syscrash It rickrolled users who tried to log in to some particular instances (gab, for example) that its author considered as "bad".
I'm not sure about now but it's enough for me to never touch it.

Looks like Fedilab which I use since its early days is not under active development any more. Which Android app for fedi you, guys would recommend?
Tusky is not an option for me: I would not use this piece of crap with hardcoded blacklist of "bad" instances even if it was the only app available.

This is the lie that all the vaxtards believe. They believe that it is unvaxxed that are causing this and the evidence is pretty clear that this simply is not the case. Hell the evidence that the variants came from the vaxxed is pretty strong too. Anyone that uses the “muh won't someone think of the children” horseshit should be thrown into an active volcano.l.

A new species has "evolved" reaching the highest levels of obsequious has emerged from the darkness of the obedience abyss. Check this out two morons who would sell their soul for 30 silver coins trying to take out nurse who didn't get "vaxed" (between quotes because that is not a vax it's a proposal of a vax is rather a serum)
