So, for those who care about such things, I have enabled “privacy-enhanced mode” on every currently-embedded YouTube video on r4mzy.co.za. I’ll endeavour to do this on future posts too. This doesn’t affect Vimeo or other video-streaming sites though, and I haven’t looked into whether they even have the option. Why’d I do it? Because for reasons I haven’t fully defined, I don’t think external sites should get to know things about my visitors without my visitors having explicitly opted to engage with the external content. But one shouldn’t think of this change as anything more than a gesture in a particular direction – I’m lazy and won’t be arsed to make significant changes to more things. It just so happens that this particular change was pretty easy to make.
Not a Gib? No, because I want to reserve the Gibs tag for, like, bits of news and specific-interest-related (gaming) kinds of short things. Notes like this about the site are scraps. Confusing? Silly? A good idea? The first person to comment their preference gets to decide – are these kinds of short posts Gibs, like the others I have made, or scraps?
