We're updating our terms of use by debacle (4.00 / 3) #1 Thu May 17, 2018 at 10:34:23 PM EST
We're doing this because the EU is a bunch of fucktards that doesn't understand how the Internet works, and wants to stick it to America, Facebook, Donald Trump, Internet Advertising, free to use platforms, and everyone else who has a `user` table in their database.

We want you to know this isn't actually important to us, but our lawyers and our marketing team got into some femdom shit and refused to let us just block EU IPs.

We value the $3/year we might someday make on you as a user, once we figure out how to monetize the platform that's currently propped up by VC money. By then, all of our underwater stock options will have expired, and we'll hopefully be working at Amazon.

Fuck off kindly,

The Internet

Internet advertising is why the modern Internet exists. Without advertising, YouTube wouldn't exist.

Facebook is a bad company, and people are stupid about privacy, but GDPR is written poorly.

give me NSF-funded internet. We'll just have to become rec.arts.hulver.moderated (we saw what happened to alt.kuro5hin.unmoderated). Sorry for anyone in the sticks who *needs* Amazon prime.

It won't happen, but never mind advertizing, the data needed to make sure you get the *right* advertizing is simply insane. Why must everything you ever did be available to Google, Facebook, Equifax, and anyone who hacked the above or bought data from the hackers?

The fiasco that we call the current internet advertising systems is not.

Internet advertising isn't actually worth anything. It's useless.

All this dark pattern shit is propping up a failed system.
