@mathlover2 If this seems tame, you're in a dystopia.
But honestly, it's more about how short-sighted so-called 'pragmatic' approaches are.
@malin True. My standards of near-term dystopia have been too high, especially given all the dystopian fiction out there, much of it over-the-top rather than subtle.
It also helps that I have never liked merely token efforts at fixing issues, Elon Musk, the state of US politics since 2000, or coffee, and can't easily picture myself being the foolish person in that scenario.
@malin On the other hand, I am a fan of having stuff delivered to my door, and I do have a Paypal I recently started --- though my use for it is marginal, confined to an online service and a part-time job.
I guess I do have something to be concerned about, after all...
@mathlover2 Yea, I use some of the comfy short-term stuff too.
My guess is that it's mostly okay, if you're on both sensible and short-sighted platforms, so I've signed up to Librepay. That way I can use it when I can, even if I'm not actively disincentivising Musk-coin.
@malin I do a similar thing with chat clients. I have a Discord account and a Matrix account.
I also do the same thing with Twitter and Fediverse, but I use Fediverse way more, especially these days. I only became active again on Twitter after the Musk purchase to promote my favorite alternatives.
