Hello! I have not been in action for a good while, and feel a lot of guilt for this.
The Lemmy community is quite dead, as I have ignored this place, and I feel even more guilt for it. I am sorry.
No excuses, I just am not able to find good topics to write about. And I do NOT want to write tabloid journalism tier fodder. One could call me lazy too, but I have been on a constant lookout and I am still unsure.
There had been a lot of chaos in the privacy community until recently and the dust has settled, so addressing that has been important. I am looking into writing some stuff again.
Just to give a heads up, I am indeed active and not gone anywhere, but want to keep this place open for anyone seeking help, and want to keep it a great resourceful decluttered space for privacy, security and freedom, the ideals for this community.
I am grateful to every single one of you ~2K people, who have considered this place to be of value, and want it to grow even further.
Please give me a little boost, I feel a little dead (not tired) and want to seriously write on something that could help flourish true privacy. Any topic suggestions, any case studies…
This community is meant to advocate privacy, security and freedom in an concise manner, free of prejudice bias, free of politics, free of cultist thoughts.
Arguing that you don’t care about the right to privacy because you have nothing to hide is no different than saying you don’t care about free speech because you have nothing to say. - Edward Snowden
