    For sure, and also other predators like psychics and mediums. You get ahold of this info, and suddenly you become very believable when you say you are talking to a passed loved one.

    every news site tells me to disable my add blocker before i can read. i simply say fuck you and X out. they can go out of business for all i care.

    you ever notice how long it takes sites to load. it's true. first they have to identify you, then track you, then track every where you went. it can take a while for a site to load. i doubt any of you actually look what the site is loading or trying to do.

    let me install a little malware, let me fuck up your computer. make operating systems behave glitchy and fuck you up more.

    why!! because they just want to make enough money to stay in business at your expense. it's a bad business model when you have to deceive your customers and sell them out to stay in operation. they can all go to hell if it's the only way. it's not cool. it's not what the internet was created to do.

    but every millennial just wants to be friendly! lets share our data. what could possibly go wrong. it's not like anyone will use that information to my detriment.

    in the old days on Bulletin boards when you thought you were downloading something for free, and a 2400 baud modem seemed amazing, every now and then someone would tree my fucking ass and i'd have to reinstall my OS. you can't teach that nowadays.

    you left the part where they activate your camera & microphone
    It certainly feels that way. But I'm distrustful of that feeling and am curious about evidence.
