i mean, yeah they were going for that cyberpunk vibe but aren't really tech savyy. they also thought 4chan was a cool hangout for hackers but wasn't really.
you logging in to gmail or twitter is the deep web
and yes, some people are dumb enough to do criminal stuff on facebook, but they do get caught
big tech companies cooperate with law enforcement and I'm sure they flag certain keywords or even image checksums (and also image recognition via neural networks), so you're owned as soon as you post something bad, like talking about a drug deal, or posting bad images, like of drugs or weapons
>just like how captcha knows about street signs and shit
Is it captcha that knows? I thought those things were like collaborations with relevant companies, for instance identifying the street signs, cars, bikes etc. was helping image recognition for self-driving cars and stuff. Maybe I'm wrong, but I got that idea from a few years ago when you'd get two blurry words, and one was a captcha test word and one was from an old book that OCR scanners weren't certain about, so people were indirectly helping to digitise old literature; there was a thing going round that, since the captcha test didn't actually know itself what the other word was, you could put any word and it would pass the test so people were entering "CUNTFLAPS" or something to fuck with the system XD
Same with when it was house numbers, at first I deliberately entered similar-looking but wrong digits because I was worried it was helping to catch crime suspects, and I am not a grass. But after a while that didn't seem to work anymore, it was more certain about what the number shown was.
Those are Google's captchae for its own purposes. Don't look too far into it.
they're developing self-driving cars that will make google execs richer and make millions of people unemployed
High tech, low life.
