    voip.ms is great - I use them for some of my numbers (including a super cheap "800" number too!) linked to my 3cx system on one of my Raspberry Pis... and take the calls on my phone with the 3cx app.

    Having my own PBIX is awesome - I can call someone I don't want to ever call me back (like expressing my mind about customer service). If they *do* call back I will never know as they just get trapped in a digital voice menu maze from hell from which there is no escape. I don't even hear it. Only calls from numbers I know and am willing to talk to go through to my phone... or voicemail.

    your photos are automatically sent to Google for analysis
    Wait what?
    Are you saying that any pic I take with my phone, Google is taking and viewing, even if I don't send it to anyone? Even if I'm not using their photo service?
    War.

    My understanding is, if you're logged into a Google account on that device (for Gmail, YouTube, Play Store, for example), then yes. If you're not logged on, then no. I'll see if I can track down the two articles I had read on this. Researchers were still doing some further testing but they had analysed traffic and determined that to be the case.

    Just assume you are *ALWAYS* under surveillance.

    Because you are, even if it hasn't been disclosed/discovered yet.

    I regularly take pictures of seemingly random things (like a close-up of wall paint, the floor, anything that couldn't possibly be more boring, stupid or whatever - yet completely non-descript and of less than zero intel) and then delete them days/weeks later hoping that some server somewhere is getting filled up with my pics... along with everyone else's porn.

    Some AI out there is getting thrown off course as much as I can help with

    LOL

    I'll going to start chronicling cow's dirty asses for the next 365 days. I'll substitute pics of various politicians on some days. Let's see what your algorithm comes up with Google!

    Ammo, camo and things that go "blammo".

    Giving up on one's privacy and security is giving up on one's rights. The more people ignore, put up with, or just don't care about these things, the more we lose. To put it in gun owner terms, "first they came for ..., and I didn't speak out.

    As for messing with the AI and giving the finger to Al G. Rythm, I'm all for it. In fact, it's encouraged by many security and privacy advocates.

    There is an extension that does (banned from google chrome extension store) that does something like that where it acts as a voracious link follower - while acting as a blocker
    adnausium or something like that

    I have had a 3cx instance on my server for a while, I cancelled voip.ms a little while ago because it was under-used, but I do think I'll renew it soon
