Lightning Lord Rule Lightning Lord Rule what can i spend these heaven points on? can i at least trade them for tucobucks?

I'm working through Gmail / ProtonMail now.

Question:

I get a shit ton of spam on my gmail daily. For a lot of it I have filters setup, like if it's from "[email protected]" it will automatically delete the email and I never see it. And then I get a lot of spam that gmail filters out. What does Protonmail do about all this?

I think I'm going to do it this way for Protonmail:

- Import all my existing gmail emails
- Forward new gmail emails to protonmail
- Setup filter for those forwards
- Inform who I want about protonmail
- Update what websites I notice are important
- After a year quit checking gmail, but use that address for spam / BS / signing up to random websites

----

What always ends up fucking me over is I purchase something from something online, and then they sell my address to all sorts of people.

its a desktop app that you download and install, then it just runs in the background 24/7, bouncing your server traffic between a bunch of global servers.

so when you access furryporn.com instead of accessing directly from your IP, you go through a bunch of proxies which conceals your original IP. if furryporn.com ever gets raided, or if theres an attacked trying to intercept your request, they wont know from where or from whom the request originated. its also helps a lot if you torrent, for that exact same reason, basically it masks your entire traffic.
How bad is the throughput pushing it through the VPN and bouncing the mails around?

I dont know how good Proton's spam protection is but i'd expect it to be worse. Google just has more resources and more RL data to run machine learning and AI tests on their spam filters. Google is very good when it comes to this.

I dont get many emails from services/sites i dont know, im pretty aggressive about unsubscribing anything i dont want to see as soon as i see it, so 99% of my spam is blatant phishing emails about someone accessing my FB account or dick pill emails.

I find it both ironic and satisfying that this thread, even banished to the gulag that is the 'Shaw, is having a more adult and productive conversation that the /pol thread.

I "reported" Araysar saying he is literally giving us instructions to help free us from Google and giving insanely helpful posts about Proton mail and other things, and that he should not be "rickshawed". I'm treating his post like gospel.

That looks perfect, thank you!
listening to the No Agenda Podcast right now and Curry is talking about the phone again, says the guys doing the NA Phone are swamped with orders, so even if you order now, you might be waiting a while

So no edits are allowed in the shaw... unless someone wants to edit the title of thread that isn't theirs. Funny how that works.
