Found a great quote on the purism forum
#privacy generally comes at the cost of #convenience. The general user is accustomed to the convenience provided by turning all their data over to a large company and having the company do everything for them. Privacy means being in control of your own data, which means being in control of the systems that handle your data, which means doing more stuff yourself, which is #intimidating for #beginners and non-tech-savvy people.
@chuck allow me to call bullshit. Privacy vs convenience is a false dichotomy, aided by FLOSS people being more interested in (expressive) power than user experience.
Software can be both privacy preserving AND convenient, if someone actually use the huge amount of resources it requires to design convenient software/hardware.
A quiet, safe space. A great place to maintain a minimal social network presence.
