@danisantos I wrote a bit about it in a talk last year noti.st/laurakalbag/q2hsNO/sli (video at noti.st/laurakalbag/q2hsNO/dis.) Basically I think it’s awful and we absolutely should not be using it on websites for both privacy and accessibility reasons.

‪Like, I’d always known how legacy plugins make old websites hard to access, but never even thought of the impact that might have on archiving and preserving cultural works.
