I mean, I can appreciate the advancements that have been made but I am appalled at the direction everything has taken. "Don't share your real information online" used to be the law of the land and now everybody is encouraged to do so around every corner. I never took an interest in phones because I understood from the very beginning just how little control one has over them. I still don't really even have a laptop because the proprietary board layouts force you to buy a whole new unit just to upgrade. Jobs and dating and friends all now expect you to have a social media of some kind. I'd take a thousand dedicated forums over a centralized hub, Voat being a rare exception. Anyone else?
