Now that i'm fairly comfortable with the fediverse I guess I'll make a pinned toot
I'm a British computer user interested in Media in general including anime, Music, Linux, UK politics and high level programming. I play guitar and love my Telecaster to death.
I'm hoping to maybe talk to people more but im quite content with just reading toots by all the cool people on this instance.
I'm bad at describing myself but I hope this is a good guideline for the few people who read it.
I cant explain how much I've grown to detest behaviour like this, I've seen it more in games but it's spread to every medium in ""geeky"" ""pop culture"". It's a fundamental misunderstanding of what art they're consuming and only hurts the people who work hard to make it.

We have really sophisticated sandboxing on mobile platforms but people are still fine or unaware of how many default permissions or extra ones the big players request.
I checked to see what a train ticket purchasing app wanted from me before installing and it required my phone call history and precise location, their mobile website is also gimped and has constant popups to install the app. Screw this hell future.
