Headline from The Verge:
“Tim Berners-Lee launches Google and Facebook-backed plan to fix the web”
The two companies who are doing the most to damage the web and destroy privacy want to “fix” it.
What The Actual Fuck?
Tim Berners-Lee has now hopped into bed with Larry, Sergey and the lizard.
There is no hope.
Facebook will allow UK election candidates to run false ads
The policy is being championed by Facebook executive Nick Clegg, the former deputy prime minister of the United Kingdom who himself once complained about “lies” spread during the 2016 Brexit referendum.
Nick Clegg – the man that lied to students to get their vote and then fucked them all over with increased University fees.
Trump, Zuckerberg – is there a lack of snipers in the USA? Does no-one want everlasting infamy and a Wikipedia page about themselves?
I nuked my FB account a few days ago. One person noticed (love you.)
I just deleted Jacqui’s. I doubt that will be noticed.
Mark Zuckerberg is a fucking lizard.
Jack Dorsey is a lowlife fucking slimeball.
I’m glad to be rid of them – and I love my HOSTS files.
Ads again. He’s one slimy mofo.
I have ‘uninstalled’ the facebook app from my phone.
I then searched for and disabled the remaining facebook processes (there were 4).
That was several days ago.
On my Windows machine – which has NEVER logged into facebook – I logged into Amazon and bought a fan. And when using Menutab on my Mac I open facebook what do I see?
An advert for the same fan I bought.
Mark Zuckerberg is a total slimy lowlife scum sucking lying mother fuckering bastard.
That’s the date.
The world would be a better place without him.
It is impossible.
I think I will have to factory reset my phone.
Don’t believe me? Long press the fb icon and select Uninstall. It does not. It just hides. Go to Settings – Apps to see it sitting tbere.
Go to the play store and select Uninstall. It will still be there.
2 evenings ago J said she only really used her phone to tell the time when she wakes at night. I mentioned maybe getting a projection clock. The conversation moved on without an answer.
Last evening J said that a projection clock might be a good idea, so I started looking.
On my phone I opened the Amazon Shopping app and looked through various options. Nothing looked good.
Later yesterday I was sitting at my desktop machine and searched again as I was gaming online. I opened Firefox to do this. I was not logged into Amazon.
I need a voice activated clock. I know Alexa will tell the time when asked and so does J but if she wants a projection clock I’ll do what I can to get her one. Anyway, I browsed Amazon and found nothing. I closed Firefox.
Years ago I realised that Firefox loads and works faster if there is no cache. So my FF settings are to delete everything on quit.
I do not have FF sync.
I do not have fb (or even twitter) on my phone.
Earlier, on my desktop PC I opened Menutab for facebook. I see this:
So where is menutab loading cookies? I asked them:
Thank you for writing in, MenuTab for Facebook stores it information in the following folder:
It does not use any external browser cache.
– I searched in the Amazon app on a phone.
– I searched in non-logged-in Firefox on a different machine
and yet I get targeted ads.
Explain that one.
