If you use Google Analytics in your open source project, you're a narcissistic asshole.
@sir I tried using Coinhive’s click-to-cryptomine-for-30-seconds for a few days but their domain is blocked by some DNS providers and ad blockers (all hail the EasyList maintainers: the ultimate gatekeepers of the web) so that made it problematic.
Tested other proof-to-work like CAPTCHA system but all I’ve found have had miserable browser compatibility and have failed to detect mobile device limitation and adjust expected work-amount accordingly.
@da I'm not sure there are any good ones right now I guess. It's all too easy to infect that with cryptocurrency bullshit
@maryjane @sir I didn’t say reCAPTCHA is good; just that it has a complete market dominance while also solving a real problem people have in a market with virtually no competitors. Same situation with AdSense, and that is more problematic seeing how Google uses the platform to push Chrome and other Google products at prices no competitor to those other products can compete with.
@sir who hurt you?
