I remember you could post almost anything on sites like Youtube or Facebook completely unobstructed (unless it was actually illegal material). Then the government subsidy came rolling into those companies, and eventually they took full control of content moderation, and now, with the demand to know everything about you in order to even register, plus all the shitty takedown policies, not even worth it. Many of the "alternatives" are not much better when it comes to privacy standards. I simply refuse to use any
social media service that demands to know who I am. If I can't use a VPN or Tor either, won't even bother visiting those sites.
