I personally think it is fundamentally NOT okay to build a profile of the user without their consent (sexuality, mental health, whatever) and then use that data to persuade them to do stuff, again without them knowing you're using that persuasive tactic.

"Happens all the time" is not the same as "the right thing to do".

The issue isn't whether the agenda is hidden or not. It's whether it's ethical to use this data to profile users and then use the profiles for targeted conversion rate optimisation. There are interesting and valuable conversations to be had here.

"The only information we use is a member's viewing history." Which indirectly can be used to guess at a member’s race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, mental health, relationship status, family structure...?

I’m with you. My intention is to use it as bait to capture the imaginations of people new to Applied Psychology / HCI.

Also massively unfriendly to search engine start-ups. I worked for an affiliate-marketing powered charity fundraising platform a while ago and this alone was a big blocker for them.

Here's the truth about Brexit, the "punishment" some people claim the EU wants to inflict on us, the full horrific consequences of no deal, and the dangers lurking behind any deal we reach. Buckle in, it's pretty long. Better to be thorough than to leave anything out. 1/47

IIRC some legal folk see PDFs fulfilling the legal requirement of having a "durable medium" of a document. For example, a KIID (Key Investor Information Document) for uk pensions. Probably down to badly written regulations and/or poor interpretations of them.

It's a shame that Wile E. Coyote is remembered more for his violence and narcissism than for his realistic paintings of tunnels.

One of my favorite stupid UX patterns: the inability to copy and paste awkward/complicated numbers into a field.

There’s a little hook that holds the front wheel onto the rear frame. Yours might be broken or you’re not hooking it properly before you slide down the seat post.
