Junk the social media accounts, and switch to Proton Mail. Problem freaking solved.
Do note that Protonmail has banned a user for offensive political speech. I cant find the article at the moment but I swear to its existence, will try
again tomorrow to find it but I did find this quote from them on Reddit:
"Note however, that any company has the right to refuse service, and we depend on the community for support for what we do. If a neo-Nazi organization
was found to be using ProtonMail and a large fraction of our user base decided to boycott ProtonMail as a result, putting the financial stability of
ProtonMail at risk, we would without question have no choice but to yield to community pressure in this situation.
In other words, what is politically tolerated on ProtonMail, is also in some sense, controlled by the politics of the community that dominates the
ProtonMail userbase. Right now, we have an even mix of left and right, but if one side were to become the overwhelming majority, we would also be
beholden to that majority. This is why we are strictly neutral in order to preserve the balance that currently exists, and do not overtly lean to the
left or the right."
We're all anti-nazi here, I'm sure. But these days anyone could be labeled a nazi, I've seen them calling jewish people nazis. Just because theres an
angry internet mob after you doesnt necessarily mean you did anything wrong. As a libertarian I think they should be able to run their server how they
want, but as a customer I dont think a privacy focused email server for dissidents should be cowering to social pressure. That being said, its still
probably a lot better than gmail.
