Bleh. Apparently not caring what you do on other sites or even requiring any personal information isn't good enough for the state of Confusion^WCalifornia, so we have a shiny, new, temporary Privacy Policy posted on every page and linked at the top of the nav bar.

If you feel like prettying the language, layout, or whatever up before I get around to it, feel free to do so and submit a pull request.

    I must say that, even if I don't always agree with your political perspectives, I admire your guts and the courage of your convictions.

    Case in point, this privacy policy. It's short and easy to read. Amazing. I guess it helps that basically SN doesn't collect personal information (to sell to the highest bidder, or worse), so it's easy to say what little you collect and why.

    (Why can't more websites be like this one?)

    Because, for all their oft-signaled socialist/equality virtues, nearly all tech workers are not just happy to but absolutely ecstatic to sell their utopian dreamland project to a bunch of bean counters for a dump truck full of cash. Nearly everyone on the planet are lying hypocrites.

    Me? Some folks may consider me an asshole but I wouldn't take the combined net worths of Bezos and Gates to go against my principles in even a relatively minor way. It's not an easy way to live but you can look in the mirror and not just be satisfied but downright proud of what you see in the morning. Now I will occasionally react contrary to them before I think but that's just ordinary human fallibility and I'm not going to apologize for being imperfect until I meet someone who isn't.

    My rights don't end where your fear begins.
