Work. Consume. Your life means nothing without it.

"Work Will Set You Free", or as they say in German "arbeit macht frei".

Twitch, a platform I used to rather like, has recently changed their ad service so that adblock no longer works. This is made worse by the fact that individual streamers have no control over the number, type, or timing of ads shown. I spent a few weeks opening the site every few days to check whether any adblock extensions worked, seeing an ad, and immediately closing the tab. This morning, I decided enough was enough, and cancelled my subscriptions and abandoned the site.

In a similar vein, adblock has degraded on YouTube over the past couple of months. While my adblock still saves my seeing the ads, they now appear as several seconds of white screen before the video; I used to never have any hint of ads at all. Without really thinking about it, I've found my YouTube use diminishing substantially since this started.

No content is worth ads, and realizing this is what made me stop watching TV when I turned 18. As for any site that insists otherwise, I'll abandon it.

TLDR; The warning signs of unionization according to Amazon:
- Workers begin using terms like "living wage"
- Workers begin talking too much about policies and benefits
- Workers look burnt out and depressed

Please report these employees so that they can be "handled" properly
