- Comment on What's your opinion about Discord?:
I don't like Discord, but it solves an issue for people that no one has solved as good as Discord has.
Discord is just a great all in one solution for everything a gamer would want and then just for communities in general. I don't think Discord is gonna go anywhere until someone actually matches them in features and does it good.

- Comment on Hello, Whats THE stupidest thing you have seen on the internet?:
Any time I look at my old posts.
In all seriousness, for me it has to be when I saw that the Governor of Missouri is trying to get that journalist arrested that pressed F12 on a government site and saw that it revealed 100's of thousands of workers Social Security numbers and he reported it to the website. The Missouri Governor is accusing him of hacking on the basis that he had to do "multiple steps" to get to the information.
Yeah. F12, click, click, social security numbers!
I am still seething.

If your browser blocks ads, but websites don't see that it is, then that's actually a good thing. As long as these features are actually working, then this is beneficial to keeping your fingerprint from becoming unique. It's hard to have a non-unique fingerprint without the Tor browser.
In all of my browser usage, uBlock has never shown up as "Adblock enabled" on a fingerprint test for me. Maybe it takes steps to prevent being detected?
- Comment on Element started asking users for opting in "anonymous analytics" to better understand their users' needs:
Getting analytics isn't a honeypot or an invasion of privacy.
Getting analytics without consent or as opt out is a honeypot or an invasion of privacy.
As long as a company or software takes steps to protect my data, asks me first, and doesn't try to trick me into enabling it, I am fine with it collecting privacy preserving analytics on my usage.
Analytics are very useful for development. 99% of your users will not post about their usage of your app. They will either use it, or delete it if they get annoyed or rant somewhere/say the app is trash. With analytics (that respect privacy and are opt in), you can know what features are used by your silent majority.

To commit to learning to code. I've kept staying at the beginner level even though I'm about to finish my Associate's Degree. I keep juggling languages and not sticking with a single one so I've made it my new years resolution to learn Java before the year ends and be able to actually use it to make things.

If your phone is compromised, anything that you can see they can see as well. Absolutely nothing can protect against that because the only way would be to prevent even yourself from seeing it.
Potentially a really good sandbox and strict permissions could help, but if someone were to backdoor your phone chances are they can get around most software based solutions anyway.
