It's even worse than it appears..

  • I won't be forced to use it, I won't give in to blackmail.#
  • However, FeedLand will support HTTPS. I am working on that now.#
  • That's why I'm in such a foul mood. I feel completely manipulated by a big company I despise.#
  • It's as if the biggest music label also owned all the players and refused access to music written by individuals and independent publishers with some made-up bullshit about "security." You have to pay them their tribute or be shut out. I choose being shut out. #
  • If your browser requires HTTPS, you won't be able to read my blog. #
  • Also, to lawyers -- if this isn't antitrust, I don't know what is. #
  • The day is coming. Get ready for it. I am ready. I am doing nothing. 😄#

You know those obnoxious sites that pop up dialogs when they think you're about to leave, asking you to subscribe to their email newsletter? Well that won't do for Scripting News readers who are a discerning lot, very loyal, but that wouldn't last long if I did rude stuff like that. So here I am at the bottom of the page quietly encouraging you to sign up for the nightly email. It's got everything from the previous day on Scripting, plus the contents of the linkblog and who knows what else we'll get in there. People really love it. I wish I had done it sooner. And every email has an unsub link so if you want to get out, you can, easily -- no questions asked, and no follow-ups. Go ahead and do it, you won't be sorry! :-)
