This is getting exhausting. How do you bypass …

I’ve usually used TextNow but most websites are now blocking it.

Especially Google and Facebook.

I’m going insane trying to find a disposable phone number to use to verify.

I’d even pay in BTC for a solution that works.

Anyone knows a way?

Reddit logs outgoing clicks to a cookie regard…

Even with the ‘allow reddit to log my outbound clicks for personalization’ box unchecked, Reddit stores outgoing clicks in a cookie (which is sent to Reddit). Tagged to your username no less.

Note that this logs even if you just copy the link.

Look at cookies for reddit.com under <username>_recentclicks2.

In my case, for instance, after opening the top 5 pages on /r/all (actual links, not comments):

Name: PMOS-FTL_recentclicks2 Content: t3_89kvom%2Ct3_89iwtd%2Ct3_89kt3q%2Ct3_89jkhz%2Ct3_89jw5e Domain: .reddit.com Path: / Send For: Encrypted connections only Expires: At end of session. 

Oh, hey:

https://www.reddit.com/89knwm/
https://www.reddit.com/89iwtd/
https://www.reddit.com/89kt3q/
https://www.reddit.com/89jkhz/
https://www.reddit.com/89jw5e/

Take a guess at what links I followed.

This is not OK.

Saying “whoops it was a bug” only works so many times.

Can someone else please take a look? I confirmed under a wiped browser, but still. Given how heavily Reddit’s been beta-testing I wouldn’t put it past them to roll this out to a subset of users so that people complaining are met with FUD.

Reddit was “accidentally” ignoring the preference recently, but a. that was for swapping outbound links not storing them in a cookie and b. they said that was fixed already.

Watch them now declare that that box only covers logging for purposes of ad targeting, and does nothing for anything else.

Relevant code:

function updateEventHandlers(e) { e = $(e); var t = e.parent(); $(e).filter(".link").find("a.title, a.comments").mousedown(function() { add_thing_to_cookie(this, "recentclicks2") }) [snip] } function add_thing_to_cookie(e, t) { var n = $(e).thing_id(); if (n && n.length) return add_thing_id_to_cookie(n, t) } function add_thing_id_to_cookie(e, t) { var n = r.cookies.getUserCookie(t); n.data || (n.data = ""); if (n.data.substring(0, e.length) == e) return; n.data = e + "," + n.data; var i = n.data.split(","); i.length > 5 && (i = $.uniq(i, 5), n.data = i.join(",")), r.cookies.setUserCookie(n) } function clicked_items() { var e = r.cookies.getUserCookie("recentclicks2"); if (e && e.data) { var t = e.data.split(","); for (var n = t.length - 1; n >= 0; n--)(!t[n] || !t[n].length) && t.splice(n, 1); return t } return [] }

Reddit tracking me through booking.com and wha…

So I’m traveling through Vietnam and have used booking.com to find places to stay. My Reddit feed has recently been full of ads for the place I’m currently in. Even google couldn’t pinpoint where I am like this. I commented on a thread about Can Tho (a place in Vietnam). Next thing I know the ads are mentioning hotels in Can Tho. WTH, I’m really starting to question being on Reddit. Any thoughts?
