(Btw, it doesn’t matter if it’s “cool nerds just like me” and “amazing algorithms” and “open platforms” who do the spying on you)
It's just that many people don't even see the point. Or, like in my case, see the point, but aren't overly concerned about the spying because the convenience it all brings is too sweet.
@Shamar @gcupc @aikage @thomasfuchs could be. I wish it wasn't. There's stuff in the world out there like the banking crash 10 years ago that cost a bunch of money. Most of that money shelled out by us common folk who had nothing to do with it all. Who got jailed? That one dude in Island. What regulatory changes protects us from further speculations with our money like that? Nothing relevant. How many of us paying for it give a damn?
Compared to that, #JS is irrelevant. Nobody cares is what I'm saying.
@lmorchard @thomasfuchs I’m sorry, but then someone at your company made a very dumb decision. Why ruin your reputation if you get nothing in return? Stop the experiment now to try to rescue whatever of your reputation is left at this point. Please become the old Mozilla again that cared for users and their privacy! It used to be privacy by default at Mozilla. These days I need to disable fewer things in Chrome than in Firefox.
I‘m personally really sad about this. Mozilla used to care about privacy, but with all the latest stuff, it feels like Mozilla sold out.
History repeats itself fighting against emergent technologies and way of life. We were being spied by the govt, then portfolioed by the police, then by marketing for companies, now Google Facebook, Apple, etc are doing a more advance marketing tactics were they track everyone they can whether you like it or not. Yes our privacy is important. But when Google use your info aggregated for marketing purposes I don't see it as spying.
