    [–] The EU Suppressed a 300-Page Study That Found Piracy Doesn’t Harm Sales Ronnocerman 2 points ago in worldnews

    Jesus. I had to scroll down past 50 comments before this. Finally someone else who noticed this.

    [–] 3d printed cases? Ronnocerman 2 points ago in lgv20

    Was just considering doing this myself. Have you given any thought to the idea of printing a hard shell that is meant to wrap around a rubber case that is already available? Many cases are two-part and those tend to be much safer for your phone. That's the avenue I was planning to take. Would probably also make tolerances higher. :)

    [–] Whats the worst gift you've ever recieved? Ronnocerman 4 points ago in AskReddit

    Ah, man. This reminded me of a secret santa I had in elementary school. I spent forever making intricate (for an elementary schooler) origami for my recipient, only for them to verbally bash it when I was standing there and they didn't know it was me. It wasn't supposed to be a huge present. She ended up getting a replacement present from the teacher too. :(

    I'm sure your web searching ability is a little better than that, what are you expecting here?

    I'm expecting you to make an argument instead of saying "Look it up.". I've spent a lot of time researching this and have come to my opinions through careful consideration. I've clearly been unconvinced by everything I've read thus far, and if you're going to make a claim, you're going to have to back it up more than just claiming "common sense". Sorry.

    Here's an example, remember the handy web of trust addon:

    So a single addon selling poorly-anonymized data proves that web tracking of all kinds is bad period?

    TOS agreements or public statements for example.

    Which have they broken?

    Now you're just feigning ignorance.....

    Now you're refusing to provide evidence. How has Facebook or Google broken user trust in this way?

    You seem to be doing really well as far as improving, so props on that. I just wanted to make sure you realize that getting props like this, for many, subconsciously makes them feel like their job is finished and that they can stop paying attention. Do not let that happen.

    Letting one entity track everything you do around the internet is just a bad idea, period.

    And I'm asking why.

    Relying on their empty promises is downright moronic

    Which promises?

    have proven they deserve zero trust from the user

    How so?

    You're going to have a hard time convincing people...

    I'm asking to be convinced otherwise and thus far you've only said "Tracking is bad because tracking is bad."

    Fair point. I've worked for both Facebook and Google and seen their top notch security first-hand, but you're right that it's not impossible for mistakes to be made, even by them.

    What I don't know is whether or not they store the browsing data as metadata or as line items? Theoretically, what if they weren't storing browsing data permanently so much as they were storing snapshots of it that are wiped once they aggregate it into "interests"? In that case, there'd be a lot less to fear.

    Unless you are a compulsive shopper

    ....heh. Guilty. More often than not, they just give me ideas for things I could make myself, though.

    the vast majority of the time your screen space is wasted, showing you an image you are not interested in

    I really don't feel that way. Facebook in particular has gotten really good at showing me ads. I'd say that around 30-40% of the time I stop to read the ad because it's usually somewhat relevant or interesting to me.

    The data is not inherently limited to ads.

    I guess what I'm saying is that web tracking is not always bad and is usually good. I suppose you're right that the data could possibly be furnished to parties who mean to harm you by it.

    so what makes doing that in a browser any different?

    The fact that there's not an individual looking at my browsing habits. Sure, an individual could look at my browsing habits if they worked at a company that did tracking, but that data is usually guarded behind lock and key and strict access requirements. It's not really a fair comparison.

    On top of that I don't want to see any ads, period.

    I support the sites I go to, and it's more convenient for me to do so via ads. I think it's somewhat unfair to content developers to block non-intrusive ads.

    I think everyone on this sub is agreed on the privacy arguments against tracking

    New to this sub. Why are people against the tracking?

    Edit: My view right now is that ads personalization, when done well, gives me ads that I would actually like to see because they're usually products I'm interested in. If there was something I didn't want tracked, I'd disable cookies and noscript it, but it's not usually a problem because of Google's limitations on where their advertising may be used.

    [–] What does the opposite sex tend to not understand about your own sex that frustrates you? Ronnocerman 2 points ago in AskReddit

    Before that, I got a fair share in high school, but I've since lost touch with most of my high school friends. Before that was in 2002. I've been surprised by someone twice in my life. I was once moved to tears over a cookie because it showed the person was thinking of me.

    I have the same experience. One time, someone made me a cake for my birthday (when I was in high school). I don't know how she found out it was my birthday. There was no romantic interest either way, just friends. It was just a really kind thing that I have not forgotten to this day. I've not really had something similar happen again since (excluding SO's), and it's been around 7 years.

    It's a cul de sac. Cars pass by once an hour, tops.

    1. There would be better places to sit.

    2. There would be better places to put the table.

    3. Litterers dont intend to pick things up

    4. That endangers others.

    Chances are, as soon as they heard a garage door or saw a car coming, they'd be moved before the car even got there.

    Disagreeing with the law is not a valid excuse to break it, obviously.

    Yes it is.

    [–] r/Libertarian Ronnocerman 19 points ago in Libertarian

    And anti religious persecution.

    And usually pro immigration.

    And against corporate handouts.

    What about roads in the part of the state you don't drive to? Apply the same argument?

    No? Because it's almost impossible to determine the exact cause of a miscarriage?

    Oh. That's how...

    I just bought a $500k+ house at 23. About to close on it this next week and everything looks good.
