I know it isn’t the same thing but back in the day I did enjoy emails via Outlook that said “the sender has a requested a read receipt, do you want to send this?”
Right? Someone can watch me IN MY OWN GMAIL? I thought I had some privacy there. Like, I guess I knew a company could know if I opened their marketing email or not, but I never thought about an individual having that info or such a detailed account of it. Gross.
Yeah, that’s really, really not okay to do to people who haven’t consented to its use. And very weird that a reporter who has spent a lot of her time on this site covering the “consent” beat would a) not think twice about using it and b) would have so little clue that its use would be controversial that she just…

If he was a full-bore madman, I’d roll with it, but he’s a madman (er, madtitan) who loves his adopted daughter, I guess? For some reason? After slaughtering her entire family and half her planet for vague nonsense reasons that don’t entirely make sense?
I’m kind of uncomfortable with how much I might have maybe found myself going “Uh... Is Thanos wrong?” just in the cut-and-dry, purely practical sense of survival on this scary, dying planet.
