USA is always wrong. Add 2022 Ukraine and whatever countries from 1776 to 1899 yourself.


Yeah there was lots of actual murder from 2014-2022 you missed. Then you also missed Nazis painting blood swastikas on dead Russian womens’ chests. You are a little too late to the party.


You are too reactionary. Drink some water and go to sleep.



Failed Balkanisation of Russia + communism refuses to lose against genocidal superimperialist capitalist Anglo Fascism

Basically L + ratio for Anglo empire, so they cope using media-military propaganda bullshittery everyday





You end up with a catch22 problem of network effect. If Signal failed to move users with Felon Yuck’s tweet, nothing will move users off of WhatsApp, and you basically need it for social participation, if you live outside USA/Japan/Korea/China.


More than 32 million of the leaked records are said to be from users in the US, with 11 million from UK users. Other affected nations include Egypt (45 million), Italy (35 million), Saudi Arabia (29 million), France (20 million), Turkey (20 million), and Russia (10 million).

It seems that individual countries’ data is up for grabs, with the US dataset up for $7,000, and British numbers up for a similar per-capita figure of $2,500.

Most alarmingly, it doesn’t seem to be an empty promise designed to threaten the Meta-owned company, with almost 2,000 numbers shared with Cybernews in a sample request verified to be WhatsApp users.


Nice projection, but you herald the immoral orientation of a neofascist by opposing Russian special operation.


Well now if you could stop being a neofascist, we could make more progress. And Anglosphere countries are effectively Nazi and Nazi allied/oriented currently, as per UN vote this month. I called you neofascist, not Nazi, and will call you latter when I spot those tendencies.


Too bad a neofascist like you wants to sing the tunes of Hitler even to this date, about how NSDAP was socialist. Right?


WebP is even worse than AVIF for compression, and has very bad problems with ease of conversion to JPG or other formats, and WebP has not exactly caught up in a decade like it was supposed to. If it has not caught up, why not use the most complete universal image format standard built to date instead?

https://cloudinary.com/blog/the-case-for-jpeg-xl You can read the initial and conclusion parts if in a hurry, but reading the whole is better.

It is amazing to me how WebP got pushed for “web” usage despite lacking something as fundamental as progressive decoding (how you see a blurred image when image is partially loading up).



Hoarding CPUs and GPUs by itself means nothing. Russia likely has other priorities higher than world AI spam domination.


GrapheneOS is a custom Android fork with largely no security enhancements, besides UX rework and copypasting other security projects. They sell snake oil in the name of prestigious glory that FLOSS label carries.

Its lead developer (who became irrelevant in society) and his acolytes believe in purposely creating insane amounts of toxicity and drama to remain relevant in the privacy community. They baselessly label everyone with political epithets to defame everyone, and then scream “defamation” when a counter argument is presented to their manufactured position.

The long comment by official GrapheneOS account should be here (spoiler: subject of comment is me): https://web.archive.org/web/20220502064114/https://old.reddit.com/r/PrivacyGuides/comments/uged1y/is_grapheneos_actually_good_or_just_hype/

Recently someone informed me of them creating drama with Bromite (on which their Vanadium browser is based) and FlorisBoard projects. They labelled those project maintainers with very bad, false epithets.

If RSS even remotely thinks they will be more relevant outside of North India, good luck. They will never even be relevant enough in North India.


Source your VPN APKs directly from developers or on F-Droid. I see no reason to use Play Store for this.



You cannot stop acceleration and progression in society. You cannot do anything even if you dislike AI.













The Century of the Self (Full Documentary)

Too many people need to watch this in 2022.

The amount of Russophobia and anti Russian censorship ongoing currently on Reddit is astounding.

I am observing a very similar sentiment to Sinophobia, now regarding Russia. Reddit’s audience is primarily 80% USA + West EU, and the rest 20% also includes a lot of East Europe and other countries, leaving for 5-10% anti-hatred people. On the other hand, Western world makes up for a mere 12% of th…

What are easy to present criticisms of mainstream outlets like BBC and CNN?

While it is easy to use phrases like “use critical thinking”, this is not easy for elders or cousins in families to be told, as this is not lucid to understand in a snap. It is essential for criticism to be easily communicable to ordinary people that watch Google Feed or MSN News daily, and I feel t…
