I also pointed out that his blog uses #DDG as the embedded search mechanism, and that #DuckDuckGo uses #Microsoft both for hosting & for Bing queries (so MS sees both user's IP address and queries, which it can combine). Why would Bruce #Schneier consider those facts unworthy of response, and even unworthy of exposure? Why is he censoring that? Does he work for DDG?
I have to wonder if #Schneier is censoring Microsoft's involvement with DDG, what else is he censoring? I'd love to be able to read the posts he blocks.
@bojkotiMalbona this is very concerning.
I've always trusted Bruce completely. My goto in the security world if I need an opinion.
@greenpete i can see how he might have had a lapse in judgment in 2013 when DDG issues were largely unknown, but his reaction and refusal to correct himself is disturbing indeed. He lost some of my respect.
