Revision as of 17:31, 27 April 2012

Here I give examples of the signatures I have used on various forums.

Compare Tepples's Slashdot signatures. However, as previously stated:

  • I will not name specific forums.
  • Most of these signatures are intended primarily for humor, as opposed to promoting my position on a specific issue.
  • This list will never be comprehensive.

Why I don't use Google Chrome
(the link points to https://www.eff.org/https-everywhere)
Originally, HTTPS-Everywhere was available exclusively for Firefox because other browsers lacked the necessary APIs. There is now a public beta for Chrome, but I will not consider using Chrome as my browser due to Google's poor track record on privacy. Also, HTTPS-Everywhere for Chrome doesn't currently play nice with other content-filtering extensions due to limitations of the WebRequest API used by these extensions. (There are other reasons that I don't use any Chromium-based browser at all, but that is beyond the scope of this discussion.)
