For all parents who consider to use apps to control their childrens internet or smartphone activity:
Please don't. Instead of monitoring it, spend time with you children and talk with them about what they do and see on the internet.

Reclaim your freedom with free libre software - Richard Stallman of Free Software Foundation urges not to use Facehook, whatsdat, Twatter etc. since they are monstrous surveillance engines designed to work against people and our interest.
This is contemporary and legendary altogether. Linux related.
Some people that I work with want to start using #discord but I remember seeing a lot of toot about it being bad but I don't remember why.
