Read Baase chapter 2 on privacy
This is big news. Violation of a site's Terms of Service makes ones access "unauthorized", and the CFAA criminalizes "unauthorized" access. But the Supreme Court has just ruled that the two uses here of the word "unauthorized" have meanings that are not the same:
(BTW, an interesting line-up of Justices in the 6-3 decision!)
Is Tor actually the reason for the shutdown? Brandt was using Paypal to buy server space to run Tor nodes.
For a while, claiming that Sars-Cov-2 might have been accidentally released by the Wuhan Institute of Virology was regarded as a right-wing conspiracy theory. From www.newsweek.com/exclusive-how-amateur-sleuths-broke-wuhan-lab-story-embarrassed-media-1596958:
The paper aroused [Yuri] Deigin's suspicions. He wondered if SARS-CoV-2 might have emerged through some genetic mixing and matching from a lab working with RaTG13 or related viruses. His post was cogent and comprehensive. The Seeker [see Newsweek article] posted Deigin's theory on Reddit, which promptly suspended his account permanently.
Lots of sites did at the time have rules about promoting Covid "misinformation".
I'm back from a week at my mom's house and now I'm getting ads for her toothpaste brand.
How are they doing this?
Short answer: Mum and Bob have shared an IP
address for a week (the IP address assigned to the house Wi-Fi external

IP address, not like Loyola's, because they can look it up.) And
advertising to everyone in a household is a Thing.
Is it a problem?
Would it be a problem if the government were doing it?
Cohen's 2013 paper, What Privacy Is For:
shorthand for breathing room to engage in the processes of boundary
management that enable and constitute self-development.
Is that a concrete theory?
about the theory that we tend to behave more circumspectly when we are
privacy a liberty (like free speech, or the right to
hire an attorney) or a claim right (like the right
to be provided with an attorney)?
Is privacy part of the "classical liberal" sense of personal autonomy and independence from the state?
do so many people (including "The Seeker" in the news item above) use
pseudonyms on the Internet? One way or another, this seems to be a
form of privacy protection.
why does Cohen begin her paper with a section entitled HOW PRIVACY GOT A BAD NAME FOR ITSELF. Does it
deserve this? Is privacy really a fundamentally suspicious
goal, something you want only if you have something to hide?
Why does the government invade your privacy?
Why do web advertisers invade your privacy?
