tech stuff, adjacent to child abuse 

Let's not even talk about their optimisation of YouTube's algorithms to make the alt right more popular in Brazil, and bringing innocent home movies of young girls in swimwear directly to paedophiles.

Oh oops, I guess we're talking about it.

These dregs of society – let me clear here, I'm talking about Google executives and any employees complicit in this – need to be punished to the fullest extent of the law.

#GMail is harmful to e-mail ecosystem; its antispam blocking policy matches too many valid messages as spam.

It blocked LastPass email leak warning email, because it contained "a link" to a leaked site.

It blocked an e-mail from goverment agency addressed directly to me.

It discriminates all non-gmail servers, and it's pretty much impossible to own a private SMTP server these days, because GMail will classify everything as spam.

It's not how e-mail should work.

Consider dropping GMail.

Treatment of native Americans for the last few generations 

Thank you white people, for the systemic genocide of Native Americans.

Nb4 "what genocide?" I have these to show you

Boarding homes, forced sterilization of children, forcibly taking the children away and adopting them out to "good" white christian homes, destroying all treaties, banning languages, forced drug addictions, lack of resources, rape, murder, burning all writings, forced assimilation of children.

And more.
