Consumer Advocacy

24 Members
What to buy, and where; or NOT! Keep politics things not DIRECTLY related to companies' goods & services OUT, generally. We all know about Apple® making goods in China were it is said there are major Human Rights Violations in the factories. Yet people sport Apple® products while screamingly boycotting companies over partisan politics. Hipocrites. So, let's not have people in here bemoaning about companies that do not support our respective political positions! I'm sure Ebay and things of Chinese origin will be discussed, however. ••• Room is "logged" & "World Readable": https://view.matrix.org/alias/%23ConsumerAdvocacy:matrix.org ••• Listed: https://matrixstats.org/room/!syKqeLTyOujVeoGCNI:matrix.org ••• For sharing:#ConsumerAdvocacy:matrix.org ° https://riot.im/app/#/room/#ConsumerAdvocacy:matrix.org ° https://matrix.to/#/#ConsumerAdvocacy:matrix.org ••• Keywords/Tags: #ConsumerAdvocacy #ConsumerProtection #SmartBuyers ••••7 Servers

Most of us are aware of Purism and the Librem 5. It, and Purism, have been debunked in #Cybersecurity:matrix.org . "Security by buttons"! What happens while the buttons are on?!?!

Generally the security of such devices is more topical in there. But also such gear is discussed in:

(W)ISPs & Gear/Devices, LAN, Networking, mobile phones.

18:45:20@mstdnuser:matrix.orgmstdnusercan you show me the security debunked?
18:46:01@mstdnuser:matrix.orgmstdnuserbecause to my knowledge no one has a librem 5 and they claim the hardware switch severs powser and data to mic, camera, bt, wifi.
18:46:50@mstdnuser:matrix.orgmstdnuserbut idrc about it being a locked down phone against the NSA, I just want the data collection to stop
20:51:21@mstdnuser:matrix.orgmstdnuserI really wish to see it debunked if its all bs'

Anyone tried the "Squatty Potty" or a knockoff? I looked at various reviews online, including Reddit™, am an undecided. Sitting bolt upright on a Western commode/toilet seems to not be ideal. But do such stools (incidental pun) offer any advantage over just leaning forward?

One naysayer claims to have fallen over, face first, when hung over and full of bad Mexican food. IDK.

A Voice for Men posted a new article: The tsunami ( https://www.avoiceformen.com/feminism/feminist-lies-feminism/the-tsunami/ )

Men should not only boycott Gillette and Proctor & Gamble, but as the "Tsunami" article recommends, blast their Social Media, phones, e-mail, et cetera; and such for the American NFL advertising decision makers.

Fuck their misandrist "commodity activism” or "corporate activism".

I get old school double-edged blades made by Dorco™ inco South Korea online for ~0.075$ / ~7.5¢ USD per blade, and I have seen them for ~0.055$ / ~5.5¢ USD per blade if you buy a box of 1000. You look at your cost for their commodity, in money, and a whole lot more!!!

And the reason I am saying this, is because that means they get to waste your money on political messages you may or may not agree on. Their only job as a company is to provide the best possible price to the consumer and spending money on ads like this makes no sense when they are already one of the most popular companies.

CEOs even get fired. IIRC one harassed a Chick-Fil-A or whatnot, employee at a drive-thru in America, over his leftist politics and that fast food chain's right leaning politics. He is no longer employable.

Malleo pugnae aviditate. 🌊👋🙋\o 💥🔨 ZFG 🙌 ™¦¶␍ ↵␤↘↦:: Cool so lets ruin people's lives, make people bitter. Why not just advocate the consumer get the most for their $$$? Also you're not gonna change people's minds. You're only gonna push their ideas underground which gets them in a bubble. then they no longer get external output, their group become homgenous. Honestly, Gillette's politics are the least of my concerns. My biggest concern is their part in the oligopoly of razors. We should have been against Gillette before this. I was against gillette before this. Does the ad hurt my feelings by stereotyping men? yes. Does this mean I'm all the sudden gonna hop on the band wagon? No I was already boycotting them. True consumer advocacy is fighting planned obsolesence, disposable products which are waste full and cost more in the long run, proprietary aspects of consumer products. Instead of hating on just Gillette how about we shit on the fact that every company has razor heads that opnly fit on their product? why can't I buy any razor that is universal? where everything is interchangable? why does the pink plastic cost more? it'
07:25:55@mstdnuser:matrix.orgmstdnuserI get that yes people are willing to pay more for the pink razors but it's like walking into a store and them discriminating against the person buying it. If im short, tall, fat etc the product should still cost the same no matter what
07:27:42@mstdnuser:matrix.orgmstdnuserlike i said my main concern is companies trying to box you in to an ecosystem of products. it is always anti competitive by nature.
