Ah, that double-edged sword. They are terrified that if they leave the internet available, people will actually find ways to talk to each other. On the other hand, they are terrified that if they cut it off, people will not have the "vent" of raging into the void, and will rather take their rage into the real world, bringing chaos even TPTB cannot manage.

What an exciting game!

I have watched several videos about how the tractor companies(john deere, i think) requires you to load your tractor up on a semi-truck and cart it to another city to get it repaired.

it is all about puttiing the farmer out of business.

and that is nothing compared to what i call the "seed mafia"... omg.. they basically force you to buy their seeds... and if you dont buy their seeds, they will wipe your ass in court until you are out of business. they will sue you because some of their patented seeds blew onto your property.

fkn gangsters... and do you know who pays for this bullsht? i do, when i go to buy food at the grocery store.

Should be an illegal business practice. If they want to deny warranty support of their products to third party repairers that's their right, beyond that should be illegal to attempt to seize the entire aftermarket like this. It's a monopolization tactic.

2) It can. If consumed too much. Which is only possible because it of its availability in abundance.

3) It isn't. This is propaganda spread by think tanks and shills of stockholders of energy companies. Blackrock and these-alike.

They actually don't want people to decentralize their energy supply or produce their own.

5) It isn't. The food system is designed to make money. Providing you with a healthy diet may have contrary effects on their revenues. This is the most pressing issue at hand.

7) If you let them buy you out of it. If you become a greedy parasite yourself, this is correct. Idealists have become a rare species, sadly.

8) Everybody has a belief. But doubt, e.g. is also a belief. By definition.

10) Depends mostly on the funding structure of the institute conducting the research. There exists independent research on climate change.

13) Difficult to argue. But I don't believe so. The dosage defines the poison, as does the individual person.

16) That is why you should consider at least two sources for any topic that piques your interest.

17) Depends on your field of study. Mathematics or linguistics are relatively non-political.

18) But they are repairable. With much less consumption of resources than all this planned obsolescence gadgetry is. If they were designed for more resilience, they could run even much longer without malfunction. Which is hard to enforce politically in a system that relies on growth of sales.

20) Cancer is also caused by cell mutation. Very narrow view. But I agree on the fact that sugar and convenience food is generally unhealthy.

21) You normalize obesity at best. Even when you can't afford a healthy diet, you can control your behavior.

Otherwise, I mostly agree on this list.

One of the problems is that email severs don't allow you the best tools to manage your account. I should be able to use key words in the search and mass delete all the results. That would allow me to quickly clean up the spam. But the big corporations that provide email services are benefiting from forcing you to read the spamers who pay them.

There's a reason why many people are post-email. Some places of work have moved past email to an 80% extent. My personal email is nothing but spam and list-serves I don't really read, and notifications from sites for whom I'll see the notification when I actually log into the site.

The author is right that the state of email is a threat to the industry and a concept as a whole. With it being something that people don't control, and that only serves big companies (not just the provider but who ends up sending most of the email), people check their email less often. With people checking their email less often it becomes not a great way to communicate with people professionally outside of work emails. With there being less high value/critical content in email people check it less often.

It doesn't help that email was always overly complicated in terms of protocol for what it did. It really should have just been one simple protocol. A tcp server that logs messages sent to it.

Yeh again, there's a difference between set and forget, and hunting down issues.

I've been my own sysadmin and mail server admin for a few years now because I do software architecture for work.

Things like using the postfix mail-id or mail queue to determine why a message isn't being delivered or being sent, correctly using dovecot, etc.

What's more difficult as well are all the hoops to go thru to get your email delivered to Google. Which is hard but can be done, however, Outlook, or sending mail to someone with MS account, is very difficult I to not have email go to spam.

Most of the issues I had were resolved simply by re-running the script, machine reboot or propagating DNS records again. Although yeah, small errors can give you shit sometimes, but I disagree it's that hard.

I think setup may not be the most difficult part. The hard thing is if you run into trouble, you need to be a good sys admin to hunt issues down.

That's not a skill most people have.

Lots of cons are nonsensical, it's extremely easy to set your own server up if you use Luke Smith's emailwiz.

One pro is also incorrect, and that is "It's private by default". It's not. It's literally just plain text or HTML. Unless you encrypt it with PGP, it will be readable by anyone on the server. And also the thing with encryption is that metadata will also be visible, i.e. subject of the message, headers, date, recepient, etc., etc.

I'd rather the chinese spy on everything I do than the people within arms reach 100% too, just saying it's a chinese firm, so it's a side swap rather than an upgrade.

Petal is run by huawei, just fyi

That seems preferrable to google or ddg. China has very little incentive to keep a close on eye on my whereabouts and habits or prevent me from accessing information the US government would rather I not see

I'm open to suggestions, I switched to Brave search when DDG started playing the deranking game but the results weren't great and I ended up switching back. I also use Yandex sometimes.

Why would anyone use DDG these days? They destroyed their only value proposition when they admitted their collusion with Microsoft.

They insert themselves to peek at your searches. I have to clear cookies, switch search engines, and restart Brave and that fixes it.

Why this is allowed to happen is beyond me, this is the fourth or fifth time I've had this issue.

Get familiar with uBlock Origin's "Block Element" feature. You literally 'train' it to not display them.

Couldn't tell you how many hours I've saved using youtube clients (NewPipe, ReVanced and SmartTubeNext) with built-in ad and sponsor blockers. Never going back...
