A clear illustration why DRM's (and online storage) are a bad thing.

A company "sells" a book to you and changes it after the sale (or "destroys" it by removing the possibility to decrypt it.)

Besides, removing everything "nasty" from books removes the possibility to discuss "nastyness".

NOTE: Subsequent posts about "Nineteen Eighty-Four" moved to new thread in Soapbox

Those nasty words in the Agatha Christie works are also getting sanitised.

So what is next? Will all mentions of the holocaust be deleted because it is "too upsetting" for some sensitive people?

I notice the article itself has self-censored the word โ€œn-----โ€ (with the quotes). Is it really the case that even writing out a word, regardless of the context, is so extremely bad that we should never do it? How am I supposed to know what the word is if they don't even show it? What if it used a Cyrillic "ะต" instead of the ASCII "e" (yes, those two letters really are different characters), would that make spelling it out okay?

At the same time, no one expects the Spanish Inquisition...

Manage now. There is no reset button. Despite what some may want...

It arrived long ago. This has been well documented.

The _hope_ is there isn't going to be a bifurcation of the underlying Internet. IMHO, that would suck...

Personally, I don't use any social media. I just don't have the time.

But I understand the game. Digital Twins of every Human is maintained by every Company doing online work.

I always advise my clients to simply deal with reality... FWTW.
