In other news, the Internet's most notorious bossy bitch, Sheryl Hitler Sandberg has announced that she is leaving Facebook (or Meta or whatever they want to call themselves).

For those who don't know about her, she was one of the major architects of Facebook being an oppressor and censor and manipulator. Some number of years ago she tried to begin a campaign to ban the word "bossy" because she felt it was sexist, which is why she must ALWAYS be referred to as a Bossy Bitch.

So long, Sheryl. I hope the door *does* hit you on the way out. May all of your future endeavours fail miserably.

lol

I got a email again today from VMUG ( typical stuff. I was a member back when i was the VMware guy at the office ), and decided to go ahead and unsubscribe. Should have done it years ago just was lazy..  "remove all email notice" was one option. Great. chose that.

10 mins later i get an email "you are missing out on things, do you want emails". WTF. "add to spam list" GTFO out of my face. And apparently they now have a tiered membership, with the top tier requiring "dues". Sounds like they are taking cues from Broadcomm..

And just like that, after being cyberbullied by a Bossy Bitch (who, for reasons too complicated to get into here, I am currently not willing to destroy) in my life, I have deleted my nascent Twitter account, and on Instagram I have made my account private and blocked Bossy Bitch and anyone even remotely connected to her.

William Steig was right: People Are No Damn Good.

We need a region of the Internet where to access it you have to agree in writing that you understand it's all just words on a screen and if you get into it in meatspace with someone you permanently lose access.

A little more on this.

The people responsible are people I seriously want to destroy, because they deserve it. But the collateral damage to my family would be too significant, so I am simply withdrawing.

I've changed my mind, and instead of locking down my Instagram account I've deleted all existing posts and replaced it with one that explains that because I have been stalked, canceled, and cyberbullied, it is no longer safe for me to be there, and to protect my family I am discontinuing the account.

And really, that's the problem. I originally signed up for Instagram because it was a place for photo sharing. More and more, however, people post pictures of text, containing whatever stupid social issues they wanted to comment on.
They basically turned it into Facebook.

Eternal September fucking sucks. 95% of the people who are online have no business being online.

Sometimes taking the high road is the best answer. Not the one we want, but the best choice.

I also thought of that here at home ( wife uses the app ), but what
happens to the video when it tries to hit an ad, does it pause or
something? The ad blocker i have inside chrome does not do that and
the video never stops.

Spinning up a VM to do it here would be pretty simple.

For the TV, install a LAN wide adblocker. Linux Magazine even had
an issue focusing on this:


So far I have never had an issue like that. Some websites don't let you through if you use an adblocker, but then those sites have a tendency to be so bloated as to be unusable without adblocking, so they are not worth visiting.
