Privacy has become a very important issue in modern society, with companies and governments constantly abusing their power, more and more people are waking up to the importance of digital privacy.
In this community everyone is welcome to post links and discuss topics related to privacy.
much thanks to @gary_host_laptop for the logo design :)
This dude writes stuff like this just to fracture the ‘community’ even further. Stuff like this and his graphene video just come off like whining and it does no good for anyone. There is no ‘privacy community’, its just a topic and people have differing opinions which this guy can’t seem to wrap his head around.
Its quite the shit show and they should just stop.
He’s literally asking people to empathize more, to give more personalized recommendations and to have an open mind. How is that fracturing the community?
wish i had more thumbs so i could give this bile a 3rd 👎

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.
This is something that I’ve been echoing for quite a while now. Lots of people completely divided. We need marginal increases in privacy for the masses as opposed to extreme live changes for the few.
yeah its pretty shit, but its probably also a result of the very successful public campaigns to portray anyone interested in personal privacy as a tinfoil lunatic.
privacy advocates growing weary of being attacked and ridiculed, inevitably turning nasty themselves.
not saying its justified, just trying to identify the roots so we can hopefully fix them.
all of us may sometimes be at risk of falling into these traps.
