Ah! Hold on, submissions are at https://slashdot.org/submissio..., but despite https everywhere being enabled on my browser, all the other urls were http.
Am I wrong to think https would be preferable, at least once I am logged in? I am tired of being scanned, monitored, analyzed, prodded from everywhere through anywhere."
"How does it taste?"
"It pretty much tastes just like a typical pan pizza that you would make at home and take out of the oven or the toaster oven. The only thing missing from that experience would be it's not hot when you eat it. It's room temperature."
Not sure about the soldiers, but I guess that this would also be big news for the
Judging by the comments, the feedback was immediate and clearly negative.
I cannot speak for the forum moderation side, but my reaction to the front page was an knee jerk: "Oh no!, not another portal full of noise I cannot speed-read through." Text and hyperlinks are what we need, please, and as little graphics as possible. Think lynx, thank you."
On Android, you can use the AdAway application from F-Droid.org unrooted. It uses a proxy and work pretty well.
From both the app website (http://sufficientlysecure.org/index.php/adaway/) and F-Droid (https://f-droid.org/repository/browse/?fdid=org.adaway), this statement seems incorrect.

Only because they have a monopoly can they charge this much for their services _and_ the upload speed is still capped at a 100KB when I am lucky, so forget hosting anything.
Only positive point: customer service has improved a lot in the last 5,6 years.
I tried AT&T, but their service is the worst I have ever experienced, from cell phones data to dsl.
Sometimes I really wish I could teleport to Seoul...
That is what they promised, and why I signed up for Hotmail. It was free, it was great, it was _independent_.
It was 1995. I knew I would physically move within the global village, and I needed a permanent address. Microsoft very quickly bought this successful idea, crippled it but did not, to its credit and my surprise, completely kill it. My addresses are still valid, I still use them, and among the international spam, I can still receive messages from my friends.
Comcast offers a miserable storage space for a maximum fee and arbitrarily bounces emails when they do not come from the same zip code. Notifiying the recipient is obviously beyond their ability. That is true, they could do even worse and drop the messages altogether and never notify the sender either.
That being said. It did hurt me hard when Hotmail was acquired by the Evil Empire. MSN is as much as I can take today. If I have to see Microsoft in full letters, I'll puke my last ties with it and a long gone global, free internet. I'll just set some email server at home.
Without the OSS move, internet would have been a very sad story. I knew from the start that corporations would very quickly try to clog and profit from the communication pipes. Thanks to free OSes, nobody but old farts or young idiots has to use hot or g or rocket or whatever mail.
RIP Hotmail, and big thanks to the original creators.
