    Congratulations for saying the thing I have been saying for 2 years at this point via r/privatelife. And I think I have succeeded to a good extent infusing into the privacy crowd the importance of threat modelling and compartmentalisation.

    I do not want to beat my own drum, but I want to be selfish about this one thing – when the privacy community started being defeatist and overly paranoid and misguided, I foresaw the wrong things going on that I had to tackle, and I knew someone had to do it.

    The elitism, the gatekeeping, the closed source grifters, the over paranoia… this stuff is like cancer tumour and needs to be eradicated from the roots of privacy community. And while there can be a few leaders, what we need is a pro privacy libre culture. And only a community with good moral conscience and correct ideals can do this together.
