Tell all your favorite gun channels to move there.

Ditch anything G####E related, like youtube, gmail, etc. Flush your F######K account.

If you really must use social media, tell your friends to use Wechat: http://www.wechat.com/en/ . It's the F#####K equivalent site that everyone in China uses. Of course, it's monitored by the CCP, just like F######K is by NSA and CIA, but being on the CCP sh#t list probably won't impact your life. Chinese banks won't share data with the IRS (unlike every other country on the planet), so I doubt the CCP will share with the NSA either.

This goes allot deeper than just the gun stuff, its just where most of us happen to see the effects of the current social media war. Youtube (and Facebook, twitter, and Google in general) seem hell bent on strangling their golden geese in the name of virtue signaling and stopping badthink. Going to be an interesting 5 years as the various social networks fracture under the weight their own misguided policies.

Anyone have any alternatives to gmail that aren't too hard to get started on? I got on gmail years ago because it was convenient, and I didn't realize how evil the G****e empire was.
Note to self: start reading sig lines. They're actually quite amusing. :D

Personally I think Microsoft is just as evil in its own ways. If you feel differently and you're willing to pay a modest amount ($4 a month I think for a base account) then Office 365 for email may be ok. It lets you use outlook to its fullest potential if that matters to you (I don't use it but it seems to be the default groupthink choice for a mail client), or you can use it via web. We resell it at work (sigh) and the back end has been pretty reliable.

I have had a Mindspring (later Earthlink) account since 2000 or so. Most ISPs offered mail service, though it will be more limited in allowed size than Gmail, so you need to either keep it purged or move mail you want to keep to your local system. Even though they're not my ISP any more they have a mail-only service for $8/month (worth it to me to retain my mindspring email account, and it includes a 100MB website/FTP storage location). You get webmail or can use a POP or IMAP client (outlook, Thunderbird, etc). I would expect there are a lot of other email services available, but free ones mean you'll have to live with their policies.

My Gmail was set up as the repository for the images my pet cams and home security cams sent when they had a motion or audio alert. I have 320,000 emails in the inbox, almost all with an attached image. Some of them (departed pets) I'll want to save, but I am also considering dumping my google account (which goes all the way back to deja-news Usenet, which google bought).

IIRC it costs me about $125/year for domain hosting with as many email accounts as I might wish to create, web server space, and I'm sure lots of other features which I don't use. If my current host pisses me off for some reason, I switch hosts and as far as anyone else is concerned, all of my address stuff stays the same.

YouTube has been using vague policies, and coming up with new ones, to demonetize and otherwise isolate videos that while not technically violating their terms of service are somehow a source of badthink as far as YouTube is concerned. Google *sneerk* "Ad Apocalypse" for more information.

Facebook was apparently infiltrated by highly trained operatives from the Soviet Union who then used it to give Donald Trump the election or something. They frankly have no clue whats going on because the whole place is run by a kid in a hoodie who had one good idea 15 years ago and has been coasting on it ever since. Bottom line is that they are severely compromised and no one should be using their service.

Twitters situation is a bit more simple, consisting of essentially double standards and holding people responsible for the actions of others. This let to the creation og Gab, which claims to be a total free fire zone as far as free speech goes.

...um thanks, I was actually being kind of factious. I am disconnected from that stuff (in the sense that I do not use them) but not completely clueless.

Per Borepatch, Full30 seems to be gaining some momentum.
