Not realising this, I downloaded Brave a few weeks ago and told my 12 year old grandson to use it!
Thanks for the heads up 👍
@anniemo71 @swansinflight @AbbieNormal From that article “Before reading my post, I must warn you. I’ve received a ton of responses on Reddit (I didn’t post it, but it got quite viral). And I’ve been proved wrong on some statements. So I have to check their facts and correct the post.”
So perhaps not as bad as it makes it seem.
I had wrongly assumed that the author was more authoritative
but after your remark I saw their blog and found a piece trashing systemd and that is a clear sign of being reactionary to me
I can't judge the validity of the arguments about Brave as I'm not ocmpetent enough
but I understand I made a mistake in publishing this toot 😖
@AbbieNormal oh no! I just found this mention! Oh darn! I will keep a better eye out myself, next time, but you have a point.
@blindscribe @AbbieNormal Nope. When you've rationalized to the point where a statement like "Telemetry and Privacy aren't necessarily at odds with one another" is a phrase you think means something, nothing you have to say can be trusted. I personally am not as concerned about my privacy as others, but I never the less get annoyed by self-deluding statements like this from big companies pretending to be pro-privacy. Privacy isn't a binary. Telemetry of any kind moves towards less private.
