Facebook wants to force ISPs to give up your personal info

They are using trademark infringement as the proximate reason, but as Namecheap explains, they don't need your personal info to sue. This would create a back door to get around GDPR protections. At least so says the CEO of Namecheap, who they are suing (and apparently suing more or all other registrars).

Facebook has been on the wrong side of many issues in recent months.  I posted this article in FB just to draw a little attention to their user-base in my little circles.

I left when i realised personal messages were filtered, i couldn't send PM's with certain URLs in them. Then we had the whole cambridge analytics fiasco.

This is all symptomatic of The Plan. 'They' want people to be predictable units who's entire life is monitored and recorded.

They couch it in dialogue that represents control and division as freedom and unity.

The water is getting hotter and we're still sitting in the pan.

I deleted my account in late 2015 or early 2016. It had more to do with what I felt social media in general was doing to my attention and where it was directing it than with anything else.

I also disliked working for free in the Zuckerberg click mines.

I deleted my family/friend orientated account and re-signed up to ogle on the SEO groups. Might have been in the wrong ones but it was just full of egos and superficial nonsense, ended up just arguing with them and deleting it again. Think the fact my 2nd account only had two "friends" affected my credibility. Amusing how if you don't have the social background "ammo" folk think they can lay into you. Totally not worth it any ways.

No FB for me and I have a dormant Twitter account, look at LinkedIn occasionally. All full of hot air and projection, mostly. Maybe I've seen enough cat pics to not humour it any more.

I actually have a FB account that I only use for managing FB ads, which is not usually my responsibility. I set it so that only friends of friends could find me and request to be friends. Since I have no "friends," I have no friends of friends.
