Amateur!

I don't listen to these so called internet pioneers or trust them when it comes to my security. Sorry but there are better experts than this who are not corrupted and who do not withhold information or have ulterior motives.

It's like trusting a thief with the combination to your home safe.

Actually Paphitis it is more akin to saying you do not listen to so called pioneers of powered flight like the wright brothers and labelling them 'amateur' when compared to your own vast knowledge, experience and understanding ;)

No, happy with Orville and Wilbur because they were pioneers for the betterment of society.

The internet however, is a very insidious violation of our privacy and needs to be handled with care and when you handle it with care, you will protect yourself and have a useful tool. The internet started off as a military project remember. And its ability to mine information is unparalleled in history.

The internet and aviation are 2 separate things.

And just to keep some semblance of connection to actual reality, if you view this site with a browser with a built in ad blocker, like say Brave, using all the default settings that browsers comes with, you will not see the ads on this site.

Sure.

But there are better methods than that, and adds are only a very small part.

Plus brave has an opt in add policy because they actually support websites with adds.

Blocking adds on this site is easy. Securing your data isn't.

Also, people need to customize their exposure.

Indeed they are but your arrogance, your belief in your own infallibility, the superiority of your understanding of anything over everyone else is a singular thing ;)

Being informed and having a clear understanding of the internet and how to use it properly isn't arrogance.

it's smart and everyone should have an understanding of how their personal data is disseminated without their knowledge.

It's a fascinating place the internet, and I include the dark Web in that as well.

The internet can also control and manipulate people if you do not possess any form of critical thinking and propaganda is rife and so to fake news.

But it can also be a place enlightenment. And it has surely woken millions of people from a very deep slumber from the days of the idiot box.
