A place to discuss privacy and freedom in the digital world.
Privacy has become a very important issue in modern society, with companies and governments constantly abusing their power, more and more people are waking up to the importance of digital privacy.
In this community everyone is welcome to post links and discuss topics related to privacy.
- Posting a link to a website containing tracking isn’t great, if contents of the website are behind a paywall maybe copy them into the post
- Don’t promote proprietary software
- Try to keep things on topic
- If you have a question, please try searching for previous discussions, maybe it has already been answered
- Reposts are fine, but should have at least a couple of weeks in between so that the post can reach a new audience
- Be nice :)
much thanks to @gary_host_laptop for the logo design :)

Sorry but i don’t understand what this post is doing here:
This is a post about the biggest cult in privacy community witch hunting, and you do not recognise it. I also shared an imgur link in post text for context. They always claim they are harassed and character assassinated, but actually do that to others.
For further context, you can see this. https://web.archive.org/web/20220506010702/https://old.reddit.com/r/thehatedone/comments/ue2j06/techlore_subtly_throwing_shade_claiming_yt_algo/
I do recognize it because you talked previously about it. I just don’t think it’s pertinent to show in this form for people who don’t know about the entire story (even i don’t know the whole story). I would recommend either to make a community dedicated to this topic, with a stickied thread serving as introduction, or to give more context to your post on the topic. But shitposting random conversations about a topic of interest of yours into random communities is not really cool for people who do not reside in your brain :D
Also, bit of personal advice: you seem really obsessed with this community and story. I think it would do you good to focus on something else… You seem to imply it’s a “big” thing but seriously i’ve never met a single person using GrapheneOS and they only support Google phones so there’s no risk it’s becoming a big thing any time. Maybe try to get involved in Lineage or /e/OS or PostMarketOS communities? You may help build the mobile distro you wanna see instead of loosing a little bit of your sanity every time the GrapheneOS mods do something. Take care :)
These people do not merely reside in my brain, but are an actual group of pricks on the internet. You can read comments here, where I have documented over 4 years of evidence on said issue. https://teddit.net/r/privatelife/comments/ug9qnc/writeup_criticism_of_rprivacyguides_grapheneos/
As for the work I do, I have been arguably one of the people who have done the most legitimate work in privacy community, by creating an alternative r/privatelife (which accounts for ¼th of active privacy users traffic on reddit), and my non-root smartphone guide is popular and has helped thousands of people. I moderate this place as well, and try to help bring attention to matters nobody else can make sense of.
Dismissing so much evidence as “people who reside in your brain” is beyond ignorant, if you bothered to take a look. The effects even reach Lemmy through people who use and parrot GrapheneOS/Daniel Micay/madaidan propaganda.
Sorry i think you misunderstood me, and i meant no insult. I meant we other Lemmy users who are not in your brain need additional context/info to understand the matter.
So to be clear i was not attacking/diminishing you in any way (or at least did not intend to) and you do not have justify your involvement. Still, thank you for taking part in privacy struggles.
If you have been a privacy enthusiast and use Reddit, Lemmy, Telegram and other stuff for it, the documented writeup might be a good way to learn about things. We can disagree on political stuff all day, but you will find this very interesting.
There is also a section where one of the Reddit power mods admittedly want Lemmy to stay obscure.
I read it when you previously published it, and i’m personally not a fan of GrapheneOS approach. I was just pointing out posts on /c/privacy should be understandable by people passing by who don’t know the whole story, and that you could make a /c/graphenelies community dedicated to this particular story, where no additional context would be required in a post.
Fun fun fun :)
Agreed. Add some context and post this else where.
