World: Google, you are so smart, impartial, and benevolent, please write all our protocols and standards.

Google: Oh yeah, btw, we don’t think you should be able to protect yourself from being tracked on our browser.

Google to break uBlock Origin on Chromium.


PS. While we’re at it, let’s entrust all our freedom of speech to Google also.

@aral Well, nobody (including google) is obliged to host other people's opinions on their infrastructure. That's why we are using Mastodon :P

@zalandocalrissian Exactly. Now think about how much of the population depends on Google and Facebook and <insert every other surveillance capitalist here> and you’ve just summarised why human rights and democracy are fucked unless we move beyond surveillance capitalism.

@aral freedom of speech neither requires anyone to distribute your opinion, nor to hear it. It simply states you may not be punished for expressing it.

@aral without sarcasm I can say, it's really convenient how you did not include comment 33.

@ng0 There’s literally a link to the page in the original toot. I hadn’t even realised until you just pointed it out. I’m sorry I cropped out part of their excuse.

@aral I wonder whay no one has quoted #xkcd yet…

That said, BTW, I would agree with you if that were on Facebook or so, but it's just the Chromium bug tracker.
