I wish search engines had an option to leave out paywalled sites or at least indicate them. Was looking for some news, and spend 7 minutes across sites with paywalls.

Together with tracking and huge amounts of scripts this wasted a few trees of CPU cycles on bandwidth and processing and my time. Save the environment, use Gemini 😀

We #BLOCKMARK sites these days. Basically its a reverse #bookmark, we list the bigTech firms the site sends data to and a mth'21 (eg. sep'21). We will not return to the site for 9 months.

Everytime we hit a BLOCKMARK it saves us minutes, yes.
