"I Am A Google Deplorable" 855-290-0342

Relax in southern comfort on the east bank of the Mississippi. You're just around the corner from Beale Street and Sun Records. Watch the ducks, throw back a few and tell us what's on your mind.

The last film I watched from beginning to end was a DVD I had taken down to a friend's house a couple of blocks away.
He has a combination outdoor amphitheater, sculpture garden and Airstream parking space with a big screen and nice sound.
We burnt cedar in the fire pit that cold October night and watched Koyaanisqatsi.

I just programmed "Die Hard" for my DVR, also recording miracle on 34th street, two classic Christmas movies.

PS: I hope this google deplorable isn't contagious... lately my google searches have gotten weird and strangely ineffective.

“As many of you know, the crowdfunding site Patreon has banned several prominent content creators from its platform. While the company insists that each was in violation of its terms of service, these recent expulsions seems more readily explained by political bias,” declared Harris in a statement this week. “Although I don’t share the politics of the banned members, I consider it no longer tenable to expose any part of my podcast funding to the whims of Patreon’s ‘Trust and Safety’ committee. I will be deleting my Patreon account tomorrow.”

I suspect this is nothing new, only now being talked about, but not by mass media.

This really began in earnest in August 2018.

The marketplace is dealing with Patreon which is the way it should be.
Facebook and Twitter may not be too far behind.

Having uBlock Origin I don't see AdChoices ads but if the quality of those "targeted" ads are declining the marketplace may be "speaking" to Google too which is a good thing.
Google is a few years/months behind seeing the "benefits" of going "full NFL self-destruct" but they'll eventually get the message.

I think the rumblings of dissent have been going on for a few years. I never subscribed to 'free' services where I was the product and was amazed when advertising dollars were being thrown at the internet with no real due diligence being done on the returns. I have a feeling that a perfect storm has come along as advertisers had realised that the emperor had no clothes on but no one wanted to be the first to blink and admit they had been wasting money (or clients money) and the Cambridge Analytica scandal had given them an excuse to change their spending habits.

Even if CA were actually Bull****ting about their abilities finally the sheeple realised that creepy things might be happening based on their online posts, which is a good thing. And the incompetents riding the gravy train are paniced and making stupid decisions including censoring when that is not their role. The dust may just settle and things continue but I live in hope that this is the beginning of change.

Of course there is the giant problem of who will pay for things without the ad money. A lot of people seem to expect everything for free. Whichever way going to be an interesting ride over the next 12 months or so.

Google's Internal Protection Of It's Sexual Predators Sparks Shareholder Lawsuit

Post by mediatechnology » Sun Jan 13, 2019 6:14 am

According to Mercury News, which cited a recent lawsuit from shareholder James Martin, “Alphabet’s board of directors cost the firm billions of dollars by covering up sexual abuse by senior executives and paying them millions as they were quietly ousted.”

Martin is reportedly suing Alphabet’s board of directors over the loss, which came from the company’s stock plummeting during the “fallout” of the scandal.

“A worldwide walkout in November by thousands of Google employees, in response to revelations in the New York Times about Rubin’s alleged golden parachute, cost Google hundreds of millions of dollars beyond the executives’ payouts,” Mercury News reported. “And fallout from the purported scandal led to billions of dollars in losses to Alphabet’s value in the stock market, lawyer Frank Bottini said at a press conference in San Francisco.”
