I made a very small change to this #Google web page. See if you can spot it. I just made it a bit clearer.
I somehow don't think this person has read my blog. If you think that my blog on #blacklivesmatter has something to do with homeowners insurance, that's ridiculous.
Can we just admit that "special gift guide" is little more than advertisements elbowing out the content that I pay a subscription for? And it's either paid advertisements that are masquerading as spontaneous "news" about products for me to buy, or it's unpaid advertisements. And we don't free adverts that in an online world already overrun with adverts.
I'm amused that my blog post "Cosmic Rays Did Not Change Election Results" got a lot of hits in November 2020. :) https://blog.paco.to/2017/cosmic-rays-did-not-change-election-results/
I think this is a dumb take on passwords. There's the flip side: if you're intimate (or married) and everything is going well, you might NEED that access. And lots of companies don't LET you have 2 logins (e.g., telephone, power, insurance). And even if they did, it wouldn't protect you from a bad partner. It's just not well thought out.
Sometimes I see a complaint from the freeze peach crowd that they want their rights online to be the same as their legal rights.And that's when we get into the difference between privately owned online and "public" online. To me, "public" social means gov't owned and operated. Which means tax me and provide me a service via the gov't. I'm fine with that, but I don't think many libertarians and free online speech advocates are. Bit of a catch 22.

For those of you wondering about the evidence for voter fraud in the US, it’s rare. In fact, here’s the first case they’ve found in Pennsylvania in 30 years. And it’s a Trump supporter. https://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/entry/-trump-supporter-arrested-voter-fraud-pennsylvania_n_5f91e43ec5b61c185f4848de
