“If you need strong anonymity or privacy on the Internet, you might want to stay away from the Internet entirely for the next few days while things settle,” and it’s not a terrible idea even if you don’t need those things. Everything is terrible, everything is fake, we are all riding along on rapids of misplaced confidence and beautiful illusions that all will be okay while the world remains ugly and insecure. Why would the Internet be any better when the Internet is best at making everything the absolute worst version of what’s real? It wouldn’t. Life’s not that sweet. Life’s not sweet at all.
