That is a vast understatement. Modern phones are essentially portable mass surveillance devices and you can’t just go out of your way and disable that with a few options here and there. Smartphones are inherently insecure and anti-privacy. That people don’t care about that doesn’t change the fact that it’s true.
No, it wasn’t. I’m an ITsec guy that has to do with vulnerabilities, encryption, privacy, data protection, etc. on a daily basis. While it is certainly ridiculous presenting a buggy mobile application (that’s what people in this thread write about this EVE Portal thingy. I don’t have and won’t ever get any first-hand experience) as a alternative for a buggy website application (which is by default more portable, with the choice of actually using a decent keyboard instead of going the masochist way), it is not the only problem.
I don’t get why everyone is up on the fence screaming at Falcon for responding to me in that way. I think he considered my post a joke and responded in kind. No harm done.
We’re also playing EVE Online here, not Hello Kitty Online. Falcon is, like me, a player from the very early days, when EVE actually required a certain level of intelligence that a dwindling number of people still have and there also weren’t any millennials around that started crying and screaming the moment someone so much as indicated violating their safe spaces.
Falcons response to my comment was perfectly reasonable. Singling him out for that response only goes to show what a shitshow humanity has become over the last 2 decades.
