Yeah, and now your are at Google’s mercy. There is always an algorithmic dictator governing content we post. Said that at least your links will continue to work (hopefully).
There is a pattern on the internet. People crate a distributed space like e-mail, blogosphere, forums, git, and even the internet infrastructure itself. Then comes a company and centralizes it for profit: Gmail, Medium, Facebook, GitHun, Cloutflare. It never ends well for the people when this happens. Yet we have to always fall through this traps and get exploited before we realize that something that once was free and owned by you now is controlled and owned by the dominant corporation. Modern day colonization of cyberspace.
