    This on the RA's own website. How things have changed at the RA.

    Yeah it’s amazing what a billionaire backer and an almost bankrupt governing body can do to change leopards’ spots!

    I gave FB and Google the punt quite a while ago. I realise it's impossible to completely sever Google when I use a couple of Andriod devices. But Duck Duck Go & Firefox/Yahoo (along with TWF of course ) do me just fine. I'm not very tech savvy but their privacy settings seem adequate - to me anyway. Haven't really felt the need for VPN -so far.

    I agree regarding Independent Journalism (See Michael West) but given the Government has "tweaked" its code depsite spending most of last week claiming it wouldn't I don't see how you can chalk it up as a win for Murdoch.

    I did enjoy the Right wing rubbish about how this was going to destroy Facebook.

    For a split second I thought this was about News Corp and the Federal Government.

    I guess you'd have to add "morally bankrupt" to describe that relationship instead of financially bankrupt.
