Nah it's just that they don't give a single shit or cannot understand the risks posed by such regulations. I spoke on the phone with a few French and German MEP ; either they accuse you of exaggeration or they downright suggest you are "terrorist-friendly"

when will projects stop doing things that are beneficial in the short term and extremely undermining in the long term? yeah, WSL can help to get new people hooked on Alpine, and Discord has nice features. but in the long term, it means they own you.

We live in a world where stealing our attention is the most profitable business. Yet, knowledge work demands long periods of focused attention to get anything worthwhile done. We must constantly fight to protect our attention from the myriad of digital and physical distractions. Constant distraction is our default state now unless we take active steps to create focus.

If you look through a box of old computer cables there's a 99% chance you'll find a a very steampunk transgender pendant there complete with holes to become a necklace.
