This says everything I've thought about #Brave for a long time, way better than I can say it.
@tindall well, at least i now learned about <aside> might need to use that myself rather than whatever i'm using rn on my website.
I use brave basically because it's a chromium and fast, and i like the script blocker
As I see it brave is built on the assumption many users won't /have/ anything to pay publishers with unless given this BAT system (funded by venture capital...)
the "problem" is mainly that capitalism exists in the form it does and nobody can get wealth to host websites or /donate/ to hosting websites
which a browser (or most ways of trying to get rid of web ads) could never fix if it tried
@tindall wow, i love brendan eich's response:
> Regarding <link>: Starting with ad-hominems and insults does not recommend Butterick on character.
> As a JD, he should know to check unreliable hearsay
> Lazy critic
> Does he even know about blind signatures? Apparently not.
> Again I wonder how a typographer and JD holder, clearly capable of careful work grounded in verifiable claims and measurements, could blog against Brave
does not recommend brendan eich on character?
@tindall >Sites need editorial and brand-safety controls
ohhhh he'd better not mention it, with brave's historical record of asking for money on behalf of other people and then keeping that money to themselves
> We don't replace ads
yeah, "we just remove original ads and add our ads, that's not replacing"
