With the way the tech industry is going, it's only a matter of time 
before all ideals of integrity, privacy rights, and free and open source 
software are completely gone. (Can less-popular addons like Adblock True 
and Adblock Edge keep up with rolling release?)

Through the years, I warned people on Usenet and IRC (especially 
Freenode) about NSA code in Linux and they told me "Living Standard" was 
a MAFIAA coup waiting to happen. They said "You're crazy", "it's 
impossible", "You're paranoid", "Don't use the Internet at all!", etc. 
Now look what their gullibility and blind trust of government spooks and 
multinational corporations got us!
