It's difficult to separate art from the artist. Even though work can live on without its author, even find new life through fans and derivations. I get why people are disappointed.

With social media there's so much more opportunity to learn what's inside creators' heads. And so often it's, just like for most other people, garbage.

seriously do your backups. things get broken and deleted very easily. and store them on a different server. at home or on s3 or backblaze or even google drive. many good software: duplicity, borg, ... daily is reasonable but even monthly is better than none. and check them once in a while. if you operate something just have backups. it's important.

"A California man who built a sizable business out of recycling electronic waste is headed to federal prison for 15 months after a federal appeals court in Miami rejected his claim that the “restore disks” he made to extend the lives of computers had no financial value, instead ruling that he had infringed Microsoft’s products to the tune of $700,000."

Internet, 2002; claiming that you're over 18 so that websites will let you in.

Internet, 2018: claiming that you're under 16 and in the EU so that websites cannot track your data
