...shows that you are quite concerned about identity politics.
Not really, I find it silly, but sensitive for many people and, with rare exceptions, hurtful and damaging - that's my only viewpoint on the subject and that's why I generally don't discuss identity politics. Here I just stumbled into it inadvertently because while I wanted to make clear certain issues of TikTok, I expressed this one too broadly and unclearly.
If I may suggest to you, if you really want to promote what you view as "your viewpoint" just STOP POSTING.
As I said, I am not really "promoting" my views on identity politics, AT BEST it would be a waste of time. These arguments don't convince anyone of anything and are likely only to hurt feelings. And I seldom post as it is, on any subject.
You are not fulfilling the task you think you are fulfilling.
I don't have a "task" to fulfill - I am not here on behalf of any person, organization, government or political party. I just wanted to clear some misconceptions about TikTok by posting some facts that thread seemed to lack.
No one was asking the same questions about Pokemon Go or many modern MPRGs, and they all collect huge amounts of personal data, often on servers located in... Venezuela, where only 62% of people have access to Internet. For example, 4 Colocation Venezuela data centers have data servers from AT&T, CenturyLink, GlobeNet etc.
You are not asking "why Venezuela?" because you know why - it's one of the cheapest colocation places available. Just waiting to be "banned" by US President?
Iceland is cold, has a lot of cheap and "green" renewable energy so there is a boom of data miners and bitcoin / altcoin data centers there. Where does it go from there?
