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/
It was for exactly this reason that we stripped personally identifiable tracking functionality and historical data from our CRM: https://faelix.net/news/201805/tracking-emails/
For the people asking whether email tracking pixels are subject to GDPR and similar EU/UK privacy laws, the answer seems to be YES.
The UK Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) just published updated guidance on cookies and pixels here: https://ico.org.uk/media/for-organisations/guide-to-pecr/guidance-on-the-use-of-cookies-and-similar-technologies-1-0.pdf
"Behavioural advertising is out of control!" Looking forward to hearing about @ICOnews@twitter.com' enforcement actions. https://faelix.link/icortb

“Decentralise the web” used to be a motto. We’d like to get back to that time, so that’s one reason why we run our privacy DNS service — http://faelix.link/pdns — and would love it if more ISPs did similarly.
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
We'll be updating our CRM shopping module because the cart review step costs ~30% of sales. TIL! https://faelix.link/cartconvert
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
