Over simplified way of thinking about it would be "limiting the scope" or "boxing it in".

Re: Informacton forums and new GDPR?

It has been discussed and we see no effect on the site. 1. Users can post anonymously and we track nothing more than basic cookies that runs the forum software. 2. Those who sign up and have an account, it is only to access this forum and used nowhere else already. 3. Being a support forum, any and ...

Thank you for clarifying the nomenclature, I had misunderstood that as a system level host file, apologies.

Re: µMatrix thread

No, I don't mean the system host file, that is excessively limiting and I highly advise against that unless you are blocking well know, and long lived malware domains. Anything else, should be handled within the browser layer. So you have more control over tweaking it and without potentially breakin...

Re: µMatrix thread

Nope, the redirect doesn't stop, even after agreeing to the new ToU. Goes by very quickly, but, with the scope greenlit, seeing something like TLS handshake with guce.advertising.com, so guessing that it needs to verify that the ToU have been accepted on each login.

Thankfully so far, my setup is so tightly configured that this has not been an issue for me, I even have voluntarily visited the links in question (when reported to me) on my own production machine and it feel like a thud, but then again my configuration is not the most "user-friendly" and I am comf...

Re: Mozilla Firefox to force its own DNS?

It is always fine with me. What I say publicly is always fair game.
You can pickup on that existing conversation, that would help me stay informed but that's entirely up to you.
I have no reason to doubt his intentions are sincere and his efforts are genuine.

Re: Mozilla Firefox to force its own DNS?

My takeaway is that he prefers people use the other projects that now he is also relying on as anything he does to "update" his end will just be a bandaid, as in why not just use what the underlying system directly instead.
