Facebook has "unintentionally" harvested the email address books of about 1.5 million users during the past 3 years.

This was done as part of the new user sign in process, where users were prompted to enter their email password to verify themselves.

As part of that process Facebook helped themselves to their address books to build up the social graph and "suggest new friends".

Might fuck around and

The web browser Brave is marketed as a privacy-friendly ad-free alternative, but that's pretty disingenuous.

Brave exists not to protect privacy, but to make money from selling ads.

Brave is a commercial company funded by venture capital. Its business model is selling advertising and cryptocurrency investment.

One of Brave's owners is Peter Thiel's Founders Fund. Thiel is also the head of Palantir (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Palantir) and on the board of Facebook.

I do not recommend using Brave.

@djabadu

The Brave browser website is clearly pushing the privacy angle, and neglecting to mention their connection to Palantir and Facebook.

Their self-description is: "Brave is open source and built by a team of privacy focused, performance oriented pioneers of the web."

...there is no mention of them being a commercial advertising company co-owned by the head of Palantir.

We should seek to shut down and resist hierarchy wherever it exists.

We should vow never to cooperate with fascists, nor with their state-appointed defenders.

"Useless assignment to variable" is such a cruel way to describe a variable that just hasn't been used yet :moji16:

As a person who loves pretty old buildings I would like to take this opportunity to send a heartfelt fuck you to all symbols of national pride and "heritage"

What if we dont rebuild notre dame and use the money to save refugees lives and house people LOL

Cops open the hood of their car like this to block dash cams. This is a signal to start filming.

Transfeminine HRT facts:
– Most of the time, you don’t need blockers to lower your T and lowering it too much (< cis women range) is dangerous
– Progesterone is useful in breast development, for maintaining low T levels, and as a natural antidepressant (like T)
– You need «high» hormone levels, being in menopausal cis women range is not enough
– Not bio-identitical hormones work poorly with side effects
– Oral estrogen is not good in the long run, prefer gel, patch or injection
