Lately we’ve received emails from readers saying occasionally, they get emails from us that looks like a bunch of gobbledygook.
It’s actually computer code.
Interestingly, it only happens when we:
- Send a cartoon or meme.
- Send it to a GMAIL address.
Also, if you’ve missed getting emails from us it’s probably for the same reasons.
If you don’t get an email from us EVERY DAY then somethings wrong. We email you 365 days a year. If that’s happened to you then please accept our apologies.
Unfortunately, Gmail has told us there’s not a lot on our end that can be done. (we don’t believe them and are making adjustments to the resolution of any future cartoons/memes so it won’t happen to you again)
They also said it might have to do with how your Gmail is set up and maybe just needs to be adjusted.
Hopefully it will be resolved soon and you might want to check your settings.
But this got me thinking.
Not only does Google, Facebook, Netflix, Amazon, etc. have the ability to flip a switch and cut off anyone anywhere on the planet, they also use their sites to censor and/or influence your thinking.
Everything you look at on the internet is gathered and stolen stored sold in a huge data base under the guise of “marketing research” or whatever name they use to substitute it for spying.
It’s an unfortunate reality we live with and it’s not going away anytime soon.
To minimize some of the spying data gathering, you should try duckduckgo.com instead of Google.
In any event, thanks for your feedback and patience.
We take any interruptions in our content very seriously and hope you won’t get jammed up again.
In the meantime, we’ll write more about this and how to fly under the radar in the February issue of “…In Plain English.”
