I got downvoted as fuck a couple of months agot when I commented on Reddit that iCloud documents were not encrypted. I replied linking the icloud website and this sing “–”, which appears on the cell where “encrypted” or something like that should appear. I’ve turned iCloud off during the lockdown and now I’m struggling to move everyting to FOSS ASAP. My iMac is still constantly pinging to Apple servers. Although I know it shouldn’t be worrisome, it’s something unwelcomed. FOSS, Nextcloud, Debian, Rasbpian, etc. have entertained me during the lockdown months. FOSS alleviates my paranoia, my constant grumpiness and it makes me appreciate the greatness of the human race

Work of the Apple fanboy army. It is rampant on r/privacy and r/PTIO, and even some of the mods themselves are American iPhone users, so you know why criticism of Apple will always get the flak.

Apple fanboys are a huge problem in privacy community. They serve to mislead people and seek confirmation bias for their loaned or EMI’d purchases.

These people are absolute fools who think privacy can be bought with money, when I have a 100% FOSS simple guide to attain privacy on any Android phone, even as cheap as $100.

They probably are the same people who think happiness and social clout (muh Apple logo) and respect can be bought.

I know all the jazz. But do Apple fanboys and fake privacy stans realise it? They are intentionally ignorant and they try to make others same too.

And being labelled one can depend on some racist circumstances too…

Off topic, but is funny to know the drug dealers, from Vice’s reporting of sell of drugs on Instagram and Snapchat, uses Iphone, even though they don’t want to be disclosed while making a speech to the video.
