Hello jafadmin.

I really don't know what the first three paragraphs of your post above have to do with
this thread. But I feel the need to respond to them. The problem when you say:
> The only worthwhile information is information you have pursued, validated,
> and analyzed for accuracy on your own[.]

is that you better be ready to leave your day job if you want to double-check any news
you hear, see or read.

By nature we humans are attracted by any extraordinary event, we're a curious bunch.

However, if the whole town, e.g., goes at the corner of Blvd X and Y Street to see
who's involved in the huge accident where a bus caught fire, the paramedics and
firefighters won't be able to save the victims and extinguish the fire, there will be too
much people in their way.

That's where the profession of journalist comes in: one reliable person goes at the
scene, takes notes and pictures, and provides a report (article or video) -- instead of a
thousand unfocused Joe's and Jo-Ann's who don't know how to structure the info they
receive on the site.

It also depends on what type of media one reads or views or listens to: some media do
look for "blood, sex, bias and scandal" in any event, but the more serious media try to
relay the raw uncommented facts. (The latter leave it to the reader, viewer or listener
to provide the bias...)

Just a thought.

Our very special crustacean, Lobster, necro-bumped a thread from nearly 8 years ago to make a couple philosophical comments about computers/hacking/privacy, and life in general.

I was replying in kind. I hope this helps Idea

Well, I usually opine for secure/private concerns, and will opine this...
Operating the browser in its default set-up is foolish regarding privacy/security.
