Why Its Important To Stop Data Harvesting 11 May 2020, 15:54:32 There's been a lot of behavior for some time now from ignorant people all over the Internet. Those people always end their sentences with the following""everyone spies" , <---- "since everyone spies, there's nothing to worry""google and facebook spy more" <------- "this little piece of spyware is harmless comparing to those big spying eyes""but it doesn't send data" <-------- "spyware is collecting data, but who cares, it doesn't send anything"It all bullshit. Every little piece of spyware matters. Matters big time. Not only it constantly uses my CPU and HDD but also invades my right to privacy. If I didn't care about privacy I would go to MS Windows. All works there (VAAPI, NVDPAU, webrender, Firefox with VAAPi to name a few). But it doesn't send anything? Are you sure? Privacy is about not collecting data. If the data is collected and nobody is seeing it- what is the point of collecting it and wasting my CPU, HDD and wasting time of coding? Do you observe your network via Wireshark 24/7? Do you? Since the data is collected (and the software wastes resources: instead the computer doing what I told it to do, its using the resources for meaningless crap, rather then giving me full power to do what I told it to do), it will eventually be used. Either via Intel Management Engine, dbus, systemd or when someone physically gains access to the machine.We, under no circumstances, should agree to any data ever be collected. Patriot Act, no rights to attorney, no rights to explain yourself in front of the court (e.g. Snowden requested to be trialed in the US under one condition: he can explain in court in front of the jury why he did it. HE WAS DENIED!). How about putting a chip in your head that constantly collects data about you? My answer to you is: AGREE TO THIS, IT DOESN'T SEND ANYTHING; AGREE TO THIS, GOOGLE SPIES MORE.
