    This should be extended an extra four days due to the Facebook post share reaching 100 shares

    2018, we all should have deleted Facebook 5 years ago (I finally did a few months back along with all the friends I have that care about their privacy). Anyone with any kind of concern about their privacy should go do it now.

    Port, you need to communicate in other places besides Facebook and Twitter.

    Facebook is useful for a couple of things. Logging into websites via platform quickly and keeping in touch with old friends and family members. Oh and groups are cool for following hobbies.

    I'd actually like to see them try the inverse of 2XP weekends, Monday morning to Friday morning.
    - historically less players on the weekdays
    - weekends are easier to get people together for events when everybody isn't grinding UT

    There's nothing wrong with that, as long as you understand that everything you have ever done was open for anyone to gather through their API. I did the data dump of my profile before I deleted. There was a list 3 pages long of "entities that shared and received your data" (along with everything I have ever done in the history of my use, even items I deleted).

    Yeah, I mean, the government was illegally removing SSL for years and also recording everyones phone calls so it's like, privacy is kinda dead.

    I take the normal precautions now, like using a VPN and encrypting my data. But there's only so much you can worry about, life must go on.

    Besides, I don't do anything interesting, if they want to turn up my rants about SoTA they can...
