Thread Name: Declutter & Fitness - Clearing Out the House
Subject: RE: Declutter & Fitness - Clearing Out the House
Last week I clicked on a page someone linked on Facebook - it was an interesting article that I realized was a derivative - a barely paraphrased version of an article put out by National Geographic. I posted a remark saying I thought they should do a better job of writing their own articles, and after that I suddenly found myself "subscribed" to this clickbait site. So I unsubscribed, told them what I thought of them, and now I've gone back to running Ghostery on my browsers. I used to have it and I think it didn't update after a while, and now it wants you to logon so it can share your preferences across browsers. So it's up and running. In the past I found it annoying because it slowed how pages loaded, but the speed of downloads is way faster - quadrupled in speed over the years - I think I can live with a micro-second delay. Virtual decluttering.
