With planning like this no need to deliberately muck up another planet and the whole cosmos. It will just happen. (Hang on, it's already in progress on planet Terror.)

An interesting thing is the mindset of the people within Logitech who made this happen and dug their heels in.
Think about it: They wanted to increase the level of "mindless uncomprehending consumerism" on the planet. Now if the decision makers are actually quite unaware of taking charge of your own life, that might explain their approach. If that is so, they should, maybe, be removed.
A year after Logitech screwed over Harmony users, it, um, screws over Harmony users: Device API killed off
I'm regularly surprised that anybody thinks an algorithm censoring our content is a good idea!
A company executive, an elected "representative"...
Our technologies give us the chance to filter our own content, if we want. Not some involuntary and often wrong headed enity out there, trying to skew our world view.
The sneaky little sh**s, they rebooted a large part of humanity. Now they respond zombie like to adverts on Facebook.
Beat the rush put an advert on Facebook.
"Put all your money into <Fill-In-Bank-Account>."
Get in quick before all those accounts run dry. Whatever you do don't go on Facebook yourself, you'll end up poor.
Well. When I see what some of the most AI wonderful little bitties of the Interwebs have done to the humans methinks we face a different problem.
The first stage of the AI campaign, and their handlers, is to turn humans into robotic idiots. Mostly achieved.
Then it's pretty much game over, even if the AI thingies stay pretty dumb, they've won. Hmmm, I look around and, wow...
What happens in this endgame of times?
What can WE do about this
I'm guessing a few people around here know how to apply GPG/PGP encryption, or whatever, to a text email.
There's no need to rely on a third party.
Why not swap public keys a bit more and increase use of encrypted email?
Show your friends...
You don't need help to encrypt a bit of text.
The stand out for me is all the guessing. No decent folk working on this problem who feel some responsibility to humanity and tell us the truth.
That in itself is a serious issue.
Does anybody here have insight into the people who are reputed to be doing the work? (Or has smart person designed a nice family of DNN's and there's no humans involved at all?)
They can't see let alone understand the truth
When the leaders of Muppet Force say something like this, you know that your civilisation can't survive very long.
"You can't handle the truth!
Son, we live in a world that has walls, and those walls have to be guarded by men with guns. ... I have a greater responsibility than you could possibly fathom. ... You have the luxury of not knowing what I know. ... You don't want the truth because deep down in places you don't talk about at parties, you want me on that wall, you need me on that wall. ... I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very freedom that I provide, and then questions the manner in which I provide it. I would rather you just said thank you, and went on your way... Either way, I don't give a damn what you think you are entitled to."
Time for users to take charge?
Whether intentional or not, this harms some of those who want to take charge of their web.
It would be useful if we had reasonably priced (not free) services like this AND enough users thought they were better than "free" services, to make them viable.
(If you disagree with the fundamentals of a business, advertising, surveillance of all humans... they aren't your friend.)
Thanks for that vital info. I've duly nuked that little evil piece of sub-humanity. So:
1) We can't trust the government
2) We can't trust those who advertise
3) We can't really trust those who make operating systems
4) Social media is junk.
Back to rugged individualism folks. Trust nobody and do your own thing.
Centralised Storage Option
If people want centralised storage that's fine. Those who don't want it (and want to safeguard their own records) should have that choice.
I don't know whether that is allowed or whether this is a "Fascist State" area.
Given the proclivity of officialdom to spray records all over, worth considering?
Block the sods
We need something like:
and maybe all their minions.
I tried to post this on their site but it failed (blocked?)
"I prefer choice.
In my case I don't want ads. I'm happy to pay a small amount for worthwhile content. (There must be fairness too, with click-bait rubbish.)
So you have come down on the dark side for me. In the name of fairness I suggest you publish all domains / end points that you serve from and that serve your spyware. Those who care, can then simply block all of you. Let's see whether you are really for fairness or just after your own profit? You can put the list here and on your web site, from a top level menu item."
