Stepping away from DSLReports.com

I’m stepping away from DSLReports.com, if you ask me the DSLReports community has turned extremely toxic as of late. There’s a lot of FUD (Fear, Uncertainty, and Doubt) along with paranoia going on in that community. Any time there’s some kind of program that even makes the slightest of outgoing communication the entire community jumps onto the FUD bandwagon and claims that they have to be spying on us.

Now don’t get me wrong, there have been real situations where spying has taken place and I have brought this up but only after some research into it to back up my claim. See the front page article regarding Microsoft telemetry as an example. That’s a real example. The same can be said about Google Android as well which I refer to it as Google’s spying Trojan horse.

My problem is that as soon as there’s any tiny sign of outgoing communication people around DSLReports jump onboard the “It must be spying!” bandwagon. The paranoia is festering on that site. Does anyone want facts? Nope, we don’t need no stinkin’ facts just as long the story fits the site’s paranoid narrative.

So I’m stepping away. It may be a long time until I go back, I may never go back to that site. People need to chill out, not everyone is spying.
