"As online advertising becomes ever more ubiquitous and unsanctioned, AdNauseam works to complete the cycle by automating Ad clicks universally and blindly on behalf of its users. Built atop uBlock Origin, AdNauseam quietly clicks on every blocked ad, registering a visit on ad networks' databases. As the collected data gathered shows an omnivorous click-stream, user tracking, targeting and surveillance become futile." #ad_blocking #unique_spin #ethics #morals #bullshit #patterns_insufferable_tech_douches* #browser_extensions #i_am_not_spam_i_am_professional_pattern #i_am_benevolent_but_screw_you_youre_a_dick_pattern #pub
There seems to be a hypocrisy with people upset about censorship on behalf of China, but don’t seem all that upset about censorship on behalf of the EU (eg RTBF) or censorship when it supports their politics (eg hate speech) I don’t support this theoretical move, but asserting Google should pull out/stay out of China and not obey/comply with local laws, and yet argue that the EU local laws should have global reach seems unjustified and unequal respect for sovereignty. Let’s face it, the core issue here isn’t free speech and censorship, it’s speech you like or censorship you like vs those you don’t. #Google #not_evil #patterns_sensitive_about_their_shit_as_if_its_so_obviously_right #patterns_insufferable_tech_douches* #arguments #pub
classic hypocrisy. his ads are fine but all the other blocked ads are bad and potentially malware? Either mass ad blocking without care of malware is wrong or it isn’t. #patterns_insufferable_tech_douches* #patterns_my_side_is_so_obviously_right_let_me_use_fallacies_and_insults_too #hypocrisy #ad_blocking #pub
