"War is Peace, Freedom is Slavery, Surveillance is Privacy"
Why @aral and all of us were wrong about Google, Apple, Microsoft or Facebook.
We obviously must be given how popular and well respected they are. No seriously, they even say that there products are build upon privacy and people first. They wouldn't lie would they?
Note that #Mozilla is not different: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1487081#c16
But #Firefox is "made for people, not profit", isn't it?
I know and understand (and share to a large degree) Arals and your criticism towards Mozilla. My problem is, that I also try to (at least to some degree) think what a normal user is able to actually do. And pointing them towards ever more obscure hacky solutions will only frustrate them and serve no one. "Not everyone is a mechanic" as Aral recently pointed out.
Something pretty similar to reading and writing: if you weren't able to read and write, having to pledge experts to do it for you shouldn't pass as normal.
None of the mitigation proposed in that #vulnerability report would hurt the users.
Legal.social is the Mastodon instance for legal debate.
Run by (but not only for) legal professionals.
May the best argument win.
