I guess if you are too stupid to figure out how to store photos on your phone, you deserve to have your child be tracked.

I'm looking for a way to describe those of us who were online and
immersed in online culture *before* it went mainstream. You know, the

people who actually know how to be cool online, who treat it like the

medium it was meant to be, before Fuck Fuckerberg killed it.


I thought we called those greybeards.

Some ideas:

"Elder, fossile, ancient being, remain of a bygone era"

Sorry, I could not resist :)

Actually, my case is weird because Internet took a long time to reach my country, and when it did, I took soooo long to adopt it. I think every other person I knew back then had had Internet for a decade by the time I managed to get connected.

"greybeards" refers to a technical skill level. I'm trying to describe a *culture*. The way it was before the unwashed masses moved in and ruined everything. The chaos, the sarcasm, the hyperbole, the wild online culture we had before Eternal September came and the non-nerds took over our playground.
It was a better medium in those days because we had netiquette instead of cancel culture. Those of us who have been online for more than 30 years or so are the indiginous people. That's what I'm trying to describe.

Dammit my AD block on FB quit.   They changed how they post the word 'sponsored' on their 'ad info link', so the filter cant recognize it.   Not yet sure how they do it as i have not looked past trying to do a inspect on the page, was worthless, as its *ALL* JS. But now the word isn't a word. Its random set of characters that display as the word. Cant even copy/paste the label. It 'looked' funny, so i tried that first to find 'wtf is this'

For the most part i dont care, but as i have said before, only practical way to keep in touch with family now.  ( and there are 2 groups i am a member of, who wont move off the platform.  I have tried )

whoohoo found a temp fix.

It seems that everyone gets a unique ID to track you, which is part of the link underneath the word "sponsored" that no longer is a word.  You can set a filter on that ID however.  No one knows long you keep your ID, and may have to do it again.  Its too recent of a change. But for the moment, it works.

I wish I could see how history books 1000 years from now will describe the arms race our society engaged in over making an image appear on your screen or not appear on your screen.

I suspect in 1k years, if mankind exists, little of our current time will be in the history records.  Its all too volatile and wont stand the test of time, like a carved stone.

Found another plugin for chrome that does block F-crap ads.   I had forgot how bad it was, on average out of 18 items in my feed, 3 were actual posts, rest were ads.

"F.Block"

That didn't last long, they just broke that too.  AND they are hiding words when your dumb ass friends share game crap. SO cant block that now either.

I'm done  I guess ill keep messenger for family, until that gets ads too.

I know they dont care about one person, but they drove another customer away.

I just put all of their domains in my adblocker. This blocks everything, including the site itself. That's a feature, not a side effect.

You are not the customer. Advertisers are.

I was being generic in that statement.  I do realize that i'm the product. But it would sound odd ' they lost another product'

You have no right to feel smug. I've never seen a facebook ad, or facebook for that matter.

So during some idle time yesterday I signed up for Truth Social. It's kind of ho-hum. Seems like the only purpose of being there is to follow Big Orange himself. There's no one else there that you can't find on Gettr. He should have just started his own blog or something.

I did that too. Sort of forgot about it to be honest.   I did it mostly for when he starts his campaign and gets blocked everywhere else.  I'm sure most people are in the same boat. Until that happens, its sort of pointless.

Requiring a non VoIP phone number to sign up was sort of annoying however.

 

Not on gettr, i think i'm on gab.. dont remember now, perhaps it was something else..  Other than here i really dont go to places where people randomly talk about things.
