Bro an Indian taught me how to use a specific tool in Blender for free. Zoomers are teaching me Giorno's Theme on piano without even having known the source material aside from memes. The Internet we love will adapt to be a strange creature of laughter and joy at the expense of others. There is no way a place that people go to see exceptional individuals act like exceptional individuals will disappear for good.The internet is already dead. Look at google results. Look at youtube results. Look at the browsing habits of zoomers. Look at Indians adding consts to the linux kernel. VPNs and cloudflare will not save your ass. It's just a matter of time.
Oh right, yeah. That's been the other half of this shit since forever in the West. Both the use of obscenity as a blank cheque for censorship and the way it lets government get hooks into your private life and fuck everyone up with these really conveniented implemented neuroses from birth even if you never so much as look at porn. I don't know about the ID thing because it's almost more useful not to make it explicit, and instead keep shifting the definitions and taboos around while flooding sites with unavoidable incest shit or whatever the current flavour is so that people get to walk around with guilty consciences, feds can keep spamming contraband on any dissident platforms they feel like seizing, etc. There's a plausible deniability that's instrumental there which I don't think they'd wanna give up by actively regulating too much, let alone blowing whatever subsistence level of utility the web has left and driving people to alternatives.By clamping down I mean associating your porn habits with a verifiable ID like some countries are already doing.
I don't understand why a specific service for a case like this is necessary. Can't you just use Cloudflare's CDN service and then host the file on your site directly and let the CDN take care of the rest?Cloudflare just began testing a new service that intends to compete with Amazon's data storage service (S3) called R2.
