DT Forum tracking?

I’m currently working on a college paper on internet data privacy, and wanted to discuss this forum as it’s a site I often find myself on. I ran a Markup Blacklight search on the forum, and it looks like Stripe has some kind of tracker on the site. Can I ask what it’s for? Does the Dangerous Things Forum have some form of a privacy policy or terms of service?

That’s for payment processing for DT Club, I believe.

Yeah it’s tied to the subscription plugin… but seems strangely unnecessary to have it tracking normal posts

Sounds good. Is there a posted Privacy Policy for the forum anywhere I can reference for this paper?

Someone clearly doesn’t have the read guidelines badge :stuck_out_tongue:


Privacy policy:


I use uMatrix extension (by the guy who does uBlock Origin) and only allow the bare minimum to get sites functioning. After reading your post I checked my settings and indeed Stripe has been blocked since I first signed up here a few weeks ago.

The user interface is not very intuitive to use at first but easy once you watch the tutorial video they have.

You cannot block the DT implant tracking system though: it’s not 5G, it’s not GPS, but it’s wireless, world-spanning and it’s inescapable. And you know you love it!
