"...someone using an untraceable number identified himself as a Facebook executive and reported he had shot his wife and taken his children hostage, ... The male caller went on to say he had deployed pipe bombs and planned to harm police if they came to the residence"
Do calls like these happen so often that the police doesn't find them even a little bit suspicious? Like... do they happen more often than swatting?

For me, the best thing about these open-source non-tracking decentralized projects like , , , , is that I don't have to be worried that clicking a certain link, watching a certain video or reading a certain article will somehow modify which new items will be offered or hidden to me by the "personification" algorithm

Agreeing with these T&C of a 3rd party company is necessary to display my flight ticket. This is not the company I booked the flight with, nor any of the airlines.

Australia just made Man-In-The-Middle attacks required by law. They call it "the ghost" and every #encryption connection has to be open to the government.

Good luck with that.

Interesting how my list of no-go countries now consists mostly of first world developed countries.

"The encryption bill has passed the Senate with a final vote of 44-12, with Labor and the Coalition voting for it. "Australia's security and intelligence agencies now have legal authority to force encryption services to break the encryptions."

ZERO people out of 14k got all 12 questions right. OMG
