    I see Fireship, I upvote!

    Seriously though, this is classic Nintendo. I feel like they’d do this knowing full well they might lose if only to let the world know they haven’t stopped watching this space.

      I used to enjoy fireship, but a particularly disappointing video soured the channel to me significantly.

      It was about something bad Google was doing to the web/chrome (the list’s so big at this point that I can’t recall what) and it hit me how, despite the humorous nature of the content, that video was how many people were being seriously introduced to the issue… and it neglected to even mention Firefox. Imagine informing people of a looming threat, yet forgetting to mention one of the best tools against it. Genuinely baffling.

      There’s more to it, but it’s been a while and my memory was never the best. All that remains now is a general feeling of “Oh darn, this guy’s videos can be irresponsibly superficial, sometimes.” Maybe that’s just par for the course with such content creators, which race to be the first out the door with the news™, but mistakes, however small, had long been adding up over time and eroding my trust in the source. That video just happened to be the last straw.

      I don’t mean to criticize you or others who enjoy the videos, though. Just wanted to remind folks to be careful with where and how they get their info. Hopefully, this uncalled for rant will inspire passersby to be a bit more mindful of the content they consume.

      P.S. obligatory screw nintendo :^(

    These projects should just start using I2P and develop anonymously. It’ll protect them against takedown requests and the like.

        Here’s my understanding of I2P. It’s similar to Tor because it’s decentralized, encrypted, and anonymous- but better for hosting hidden services and communication. It’s a network within the internet that operates using its own rules and protocols, separate from the public internet.

        @[email protected] explained it very well. There are hidden source forges on the I2P network. An example of such a service with a clearnet address is https://i2pgit.org/ where I2P itself is also hosted and developed. It’s a gitlab instance in I2P.

        Dedicated developers could host their own gitlab or gitea instance in I2P and could ignore any messages from Sony, Nintendo or whatever else exists as they would be meaningless.
