holy fuck .... now i have to manually go through and modify my shit /wrists

seriously the whole ca system needs to change somehow. how hard would it be for a funded government or organization to not just infiltrate but how about flat out purchase or set up a ca for this type of purpose ... i haven't heard of any good alternatives though. who do we trust as 3rd parties? private entities? governments?

i am now to scared to use the internet... i think i will revert to a farming lifestyle

Well.. it's bad.. slit your wrist bad.. well, I don't know.

And that's correct.. there is no good alternative. anything that can be bought can be hacked and the trust is hard to deal with.

"Never, never, interrupt me, okay? Not if there's a fire, not even if you hear the sound of a thud from my home, and one week later there's a smell coming from there that can only be a decaying human body and you have to hold a hanky to your face because the stench is so thick that you think you're going to faint. Even then, don't come knocking!" - Jack Nicholson
