@duckduckgo SenSherrodBrown's bill is a noble, but he should focus on getting the government's own house in order. There are hundreds of US government operated websites in the #privacy abusing #walledgarden of #CloudFlare or hosted on #Amazon #AWS. We can boycott private companies but we can't boycott the government. The gov. needs to get public resources out of the hands of privacy-abusers.
i think i see why gsa.gov blocks #Tor. They probably want to track who accesses GSA's Federal Acquisition Service (FAS). If someone starts anonymously bitching that MS or Amazon have landed an ICE contract, they can see who was digging into that info.
warning to donors of Crimeflare (the only Tor project that actually counters Tor adversaries)-- this page seems to be fraud: https://web.archive.org/web/20200710175417/www.patreon.com/crimeflare The person collecting that money does not appear to be affiliated with Crimeflare. It would be an embarrassment for the CloudFlare-tor project to use CF themselves for anything.
some who resist the social upgrade of using secure comms can manage to stay in contact to some extent if they meet physically anyway (e.g. work/school colleagues), or they proxy comms via a lax friend who has their security shit together.
When you move to another country, the locals may be happy to speak to you in English but in some regions that concession is temporary. After a year or so they expect you to upgrade socially & start using their native language. This is the same with secure communication. I might tolerate new friends using phone and email initially, but eventually they will need to secure their comms.
#Trump Jr.'s trip to kill an endangered sheep costs taxpayers nearly $77,000 https://www.theroot.com/donald-trump-jr-s-mongolia-trip-to-kill-an-endangered-1843965283
https://sellercentral.amazon.com/forums/t/advance-notice-business-name-and-address-to-be-displayed-on-the-seller-profile-page-starting-september-1-2020/658140 This #Amazon change favors corporations over human beings (who they put at risk for dangerous retaliation). Yet another reason to #boycottAmazon.
#Amazon will begin doxxing their own sellers. Superficially it seems reasonable to show the name and address of sellers, but note that the change affects individual human beings not just companies. So angry buyers will have the home address of individual non-corporate sellers.
Engineer of #DuckDuckGo's partner (Oath/Yahoo) simply got house arrest for hacking 6000 accounts for porn:
FUCK THAT SHIT. Having a Trump supporter in office is the next worst thing to Trump.
