urls often contain tracking information added to the end of them. when you are linking articles, stuff like the "utm_source" and "fbclid" sections allow people to track where you got the link from and how you are spreading it. this allows cops & corps to map out social groups.
while you can remove that stuff by hand, there's a firefox/chrome addon called "neat URL" that comes with an existing blocklist that automatically cleans off a lot of that stuff.
Friendos and cool people.

It didn’t take Amazon too long to find something evil to do with their purchase of Ring https://www.theatlantic.com/technology/archive/2019/06/police-offer-amazon-ring-free-exchange-access/592243/
Friendly reminder to boycott #PrimeDayAmazon in support of their striking employees who are expected to walk 10s of miles through warehouses every day and have their job security threatened by any illness, injury, or need for the bathroom.

There's all manner of things you can't do on iOS. That's why I don't use it. Take that shit up with Apple. If my friends want advice or help rooting their androids, I am always happy to assist, but if you think I'm obligated to make life easier for some asshole to spread racist propaganda then you're wrong. Should I help pedophiles too? I've got a moral and ethical code that tells me no.
ICE raids in NYC, please boost
ICE in NYC tried to do raids a day early, hoping to get to immigrant residents who were preparing for the raids to start tomorrow.
They tried to raid in Harlem and Sunset Park but weren’t allowed into any buildings because they didn’t have warrants.
They plan to get warrants and go back at least to Sunset Park.
If you know any immigrants in NYC please tell them to know their rights and take precautions.
