if you use okcupid there’s a new browser extension to keep the creeps away!
you should really reblog and share this it could actually save lives
THIS IS SO USEFUL!
Saves you the time of going through all the questions. I am happy okcupid throws in creeper filter questions
I’m glad the above post has gotten so many notes (6,600 plus!) in such a short time (about 24 hours!!).
That said, for the record:
- OkCupid does not throw in creeper filter questions. Users like you do.
- OkCupid’s website security is abysmal:
Every OkCupid email, chat session, search, clicked link, page viewed, and username is transmitted over the Internet in unencrypted plaintext, where it can be intercepted and read by anyone on the network.
- OkCupid is a company with one and only one ultimate goal: to make money off of you. The company does not care about you, the human, they care about you the product. OkCupid has historically done very little to meaningfully protect you:
As social networks and dating websites become a more common means for facilitating physical-world sexual interaction between people, predators are increasingly using the information available in such networks to target victims. Some high-profile social networking and dating websites like Match.com attempt to protect their users from consent violations using deeply flawed processes, screening against national sex offender registries. The exploratory analysis outlined in this post suggests that there are better signals than blacklists like the sex offender registry, which has an enormous number of its own problems, for identifying problematic behavior across large clusters of users.”
PLEASE READ THOSE LINKS.
Only through unrelenting, unapologetic, and unending user advocacy can the corporate-controlled Internet be a place that serves you. It is currently a place where users like us are both consumer and consumed.
I hope this tool makes you believe society can and should serve and protect you, not the other way around. The most powerful technology in the Predator Alert Tool for OkCupid is the simple idea that we can work together. I hope this tool inspires you to demand better from companies who profit off your data.
