Oh boy we knew this was coming --- and will this make people finally realize Planned Parenthood did a lot more than Abortions. Doubtful... Just fucking hell...

Unless you have a very good reason not to, or are publicly known anyway, there is really no need for you to use your real name or photo online.
Back in the 90s when i first discovered the internet, this was common knowledge. Nobody used their real name on forums or share personal information without considering the consequences. Those few who did were promptly told that's a bad idea.
It seems somehow we unlearned this, right when corporations started monetizing that information.

I'm old enough now that some adults are 10+ years younger than I am. It can feel embarrassing when I encounter a much younger person who is more thoughtful, more knowledgeable, or generally better than me in some way. It is a very silly thing to feel, but I think also an understandable thing to feel. "I've had more time to grow, why aren't I that good?" People focus on different goals. People have different journeys. My inadequacies are my own.
It would be so easy to turn that embarrassment outwards. To let it become an unhealthy anger. To invent reasons why the young person was wrong, or hadn't earned what they accomplished.
I think I understand angry old people better now, and I respect them even less.

@tootbrute glad to hear it!
@debugninja @jket god, I feel the same way. So fucking annoying. I recently learned about Buster (https://github.com/dessant/buster), and it looks promising. Haven’t tried it yet though so I’m not getting my hopes up.

@tootbrute Looks like they addressed your issue (https://github.com/signalapp/Signal-Android/issues/7635#issuecomment-463491507) but I’m not sure if they’ve deployed the change yet to the Play Store. Maybe their hosted version is already updated? https://signal.org/android/apk
@tootbrute that sucks 😖 yeah, the echoing shouldn’t occur after the device is on the AEC blocklist. I remember a family member having this same issue on their ancient Android. I’m not sure if their device was on the blocklist or not but they upgraded their phone eventually and didn’t experience the echo again.
