I ordered an artichoke antipasti for the table, and two co-workers from Taiwan had never even seen one.

I made them taste it, and they hated the bitter taste. I had the exact same reaction as a child, but I was forced to eat them until I started to find them tasty 😋

It's not difficult to make a faster and less intrusive web. If you're running on WordPress, simply use fewer plugins. Your site loads faster with fewer scripts and third-party connections.

"There is a direct correlation between plugin count and poor performance. Each additional plugin knocks roughly 3.2 points off of Google PageSpeed. Around 1% of small business WordPress sites use 15+ plugins"

Last release of uBlock Origin rejected from google chrome webstore for BS reason "not complying with webstore policy". Gorhill (main dev taking privacy seriously unlike uBlock and adblock devs) won't bother trying to push back. He's right. Just don't bother with chrome. Time to drop support.

Switch away from chrome if you didn't already. A browser where blocking ads at a technical level is made harder and harder, and now this kind of barrier...
