Designing your processes to be opt out is as morally corrupt as sending explict pictures of your sexual organs to someone who didn't ask for them.

@jspath55 depends which marketing student you ask I guess..

I personally tend to view propaganda as the larger category which public relations belongs too. Which is also why I tend to substitute it for PR mentally.

BwB's content really has been sliding as of late, huh? I've been enjoying Alvin's stuff way more than the main videos. These "x ranked from best to worst" videos feel like the laziest unoriginal clickfarming shit.

@gsuberland I don't want to sound judgemental about him and his struggles. I know he has had some personal issues and struggles and I hope he comes through it. I noticed about the time he split from his fiancee something changed, his whole way of presenting himself has gotten different. The content hasn't been able to engage me since.

Find myself either going to mythical kitchen or tasting history.

@gsuberland serious question.

How is Reddit any better than discord?

Kzad_Bhat,

@gsuberland ok wasn't aware of that. for me they are both just: bad: because of the data collection and gatekeeping aspects.

Yes I pine for the days of forums and such.

Hey. This is a bad idea. I don't know what the opposite of Public Health Work is, but it looks like this.

The thing that people who design these kinds of "solutions" fail to understand is that their incomplete "solution" is not better than nothing. It will not only attract people who are currently doing no STI screening, but will very likely intercept a large population of folks who would otherwise insist on proper STI screening, reducing overall safety.

@North @Isocat oh dear let's just hope their admins are good at opsec... This sounds too lucrative too pass up for people up to no good.. because who really wants that info out there...? And in some jurisdictions alone, having an account there would be enough to get into trouble.

in , 1990, the Secret Service raided the offices of Steve Jackson Games, a maker of roleplaying games, in Chicago.

Two employees of the company were Erik Bloodaxe & The Mentor, at the time infamous hackers. The SS claimed they thought a Cyberpunk role-playing tabletop was a hacking tutorial.

was checking out GPU prices versus performance and wow do high end GPUs really not stack up to the cost these days. I bought a 1080Ti and a 2080Ti at release because both of those were major upgrades from the '60 and '70, but now? feels like there's only a few percent in it between a 4070 Super and the higher end cards despite a huge price difference.

    @walfischbucht @slothrop well at least it isn't watching baseball .... Been to two games in my life.. cannot recommend. ( At least watching them on TV you have the chance to use a bathroom.. but in a stadium... Shudder..) would be interesting to ask after the game how much time they spent on Internet connected devices and how trying watching the game.

    Ich selber nutzte nie von , weil weder inhaltlich noch dessen Nutzen mir einleuchtete. Ich nahm es nie als Unterhaltung wahr, sondern als plump. Es sieht so aus, dass im & bei 's die Sololösungen nicht mehr gefragt sind. Ob deswegen das nun populär wird, ist wieder eine ganz andere Frage.

    mit zwei Blu-rays desselben Films, eine Englisch für die Bonusfeatures und eine Deutsch für die Tonspur, im Einkaufswagen gesendet

    @kubikpixel there are four letters that sum up my opinion of this quite well:

    FAFO.

    There have been enough warnings about this issue that it has to be down to user ineptness. (Just like using Facebook and the like.) There is NO NEED, there is a desire, but NO NEED, to do such things. IT people have been screaming into the void about it long enough.. and all that ever comes back: "we couldn't have known."

    I am getting to the point where I wonder if environmental scientists feel the same way.
