According to https://www.cbeci.org/ it looks like each Bitcoin transaction wastes the same energy as a lightning strike.
What design of disgraceful delinquency have the depraved DoH desperados at @firstname.lastname@example.org thought of now? Let's see…
Oh. Hmm. Well, after @ICOnews@twitter.com called out the online ad brokering world as borderline illegal, is this a good idea whose time has finally come?
Another DoH provider joins in the “light-hearted […] debate”.
Thanks to @ISPAUK@twitter.com's awful attack on @email@example.com we'll be prioritizing the deployment of our freely available #DoH servers.
(And if you can't wait there's always @firstname.lastname@example.org's https://faelix.net/ref/dns/#privacy-dns if you want to try DoH without using @CloudFlare@twitter.com et al)
Oh no, another bandit! 😎😂
Seriously @ISPAUK@twitter.com and @IWFhotline@twitter.com, look how easy this was, DoH / DoT server at https://adblock.doh.mydns.network providing ad-blocking and malware black-holing (using pi-hole as a backend, no queries are logged). Your complaints are baseless.
Thanks @MigratingDragns@twitter.com for taking a detour, stopping by, and talking about Dastardly-over-HTTPS with us.
Following the uproar over @ISPAUK@twitter.com's #InternetVillain award, @email@example.com and @firstname.lastname@example.org from @email@example.com sat down to talk about why people are so upset about it:
Nice work by @firstname.lastname@example.org!
Hey @ISPAUK@twitter.com, not sure that nomination of yours is working out as planned. Villainy seems to be in fashion right now.
Inspired by @email@example.com & @firstname.lastname@example.org our DNS-over-HTTPS service with @email@example.com filtering and @firstname.lastname@example.org resolving is free to use : https://www.netweaver.uk/dns-over-https/

And just so you know, with the currently proposed DNS over HTTPS suppliers, this is where some browsers would send your traffic by default. And non-US persons have even less privacy protections against NSA than Americans do. https://twitter.com/zackwhittaker/status/1143878365784543232
Climate crisis, decade-old promise to reduce subsidies, but some G20 countries will pump even more cash into coal. https://faelix.link/g20coal

The UK ICO report into Adtech and real-time bidding concludes that there are significant privacy concerns. Are we surprised? https://ico.org.uk/media/about-the-ico/documents/2615156/adtech-real-time-bidding-report-201906.pdf
Decision by @ICANN@twitter.com: @Amazon@twitter.com wins rights to .amazon GTLD. But of course it does. FFS. https://faelix.link/dotamazon
