security rant 

Security is great because you can use it to justify anything and people will go along with it. Vendor lock-in? Security. Closed eco-systems? Security. Closed source code? Security. Facial recognition and mass surveillance? Security.

As long as you say something is done in the name of security, people won't question it.

@jookia oh good now i can denounce my shitposting in the name of security

security rant 

@jookia "when will security go back to normal"

security rant 

@amsomniac People tend to forget that a lot of security and privacy is just a technical workaround to avoid social issues

security rant 

@jookia I question and disagree with all of that.

security rant 

@jookia I meant the "for security" examples. I don't think any of those improve security.

security rant 

@gudenau Oh definitely. The rant was that people justify it in the name of security.

security rant 

@jookia Weird way of agreeing with you, sorry about that.

@jookia In a similar vein, "child protection" and/or "think of the children".

@faoluin yeah i mean you have to protect children from the adults they'll become
