Reminder: Be very careful with quizzes that measure your "political spectrum" or some other variation that determines preferences, proclivities etc... based on a set of arbitrary and rudimentary questions
Unless you're blocking all trackers, or better yet on Tor, you've just given ad companies yet another set of data points to target you
Worse, you've given authorities, which will inevitably tap that data, ready access to information that's illegal to put on any census
@cypnk yep! i remember the days when you didn't need a machine to tell you what you were
@cypnk my solution to this as a casualwriter is to take the same quiz multiple times and answering in from the POV of assorted characters I'm working on
@gregminton I think that's just frustration and exhaustion, not cynicism. It's a perfectly normal reaction these things, but it's ultimately counter-productive
Which is what ad companies and authorities are counting on. They want to you to feel defeated so you submit
@cypnk ive managed enough polls to understand that this is over paranoia.
it's too easy to fake these kind of polls and no one is going to use them on the 1:1 level.
if i can get 1:100 positive results i feel accomplished and still have nothing to show for epidemiological uses.
the NSA doesn't give a fuck about your political spectrum.
