This is why I am getting rid of my gmail account (very soon). It seems I cannot create a new account on ATS without an social media account.

Sure stop using Google or Facebook.

But what happens when Amazon updates their TOS and decide you can no longer order certain items if you live in certain locations?

Before 2020; you could just go to another store, but those are getting fewer are farther between.

also they are requiring your phone numbers if you have an AOL account since you had windows XP

also a backup email for security ( what a joke )

Then that's what happens. Fewer and far between. No skin off my back.

*When I first got my computer I only knew about AOL
And that was when XP came out
When I log into my mail now they want your phone, maybe because I recently bought an Andriod ?
Also they are requesting a backup email
So far I haven't given them neither

I think they all are asking now for a backup and telephone number.

I swear to god I don't even care anymore.
I'll google search what I want..Post what I want..Openly discuss what I want to whomever I want.
I honestly speak right into my devices occasionally when saying something deemed controversial..
"Did you hear that ? Damn right I said it and meant every word."
I'm not going to try to hide anything anymore. In this world of increasing Orwellian surveillance you just can't. If it puts me on their watchlist..so be it.
Least I sleep at night knowing I didn't censor myself just because "they" might be listening or watching.
Besides...
Somewhere in a dark room at Langley there's at least one guy that really likes my selfies...

Quite a few, and they were around long before instagram.

Behance

To name a few.

I’m pretty much right there with you.

If it’s not your phone listening, is your TV. If it’s not your TV, it’s your refrigerator, or your home security system of obviously an Alex or Google assistant, your smart watch, your smart clock, maybe even gaming consoles...

And that’s in your house - never mind all of the other places people could be listening to you, recording you, tracking you - everything.

The way I look at it, I’m not important. Me reading, searching or otherwise is pretty irrelevant. I don’t hold “extremist” views on really much of anything - and conversations I have here or in my home aren’t really all that “wild” or they don’t really have an “answer”... not much to get excited about.

May as well just go with it.

I think it's just inevitable. We can try to vote for people who want to protect privacy but it's hard. I try to reduce by using alternatives but it's tough if you have to interact with people on big tech. It's not realistic to be completely free of big tech.

AOL is still a thing? I’m not even being sarcastic, I figured whatever was left of AOL just turned into AIM. I haven’t even used that in 15 years.

AIM largely died. AOL somehow, incredibly, still exists.
