    That doesn’t feel legal. They’re blatantly using their market position to suppress competition for the sole purpose of suppressing competition.

    Fuck Facebook as much as them, but if you’re going to cheat that hard you’re supposed to at least give yourself some kind of plausible deniability, like Google’s “we’re not trying to monopolize spying on users; we’re trying to protect user privacy and prevent bots from harassing websites” to push their DRM shit.

      At this point I feel like Facebook and Google are like the East India and West India trading companies sailing the oceans with their own fleet of militarized ships, and X is just a Pirate Ship being piloted by Jack Sparrow from PoC4.

      I dont think mega techn corps care about legality at all to be honest.

      I cant recall if Facebook has ever managed to fully comply with the gdpr rule. They’ve changed stuff around for sure but actually following the rules? Why would they if the fines can easily be paid with the trickling down off illegal profits.
