Let's suppose you're right. It's inexcusable to upload hashes of my pictures to a third party without my explicit opt-in. No?

1) other people claim differently

2) those would be on a cdn that apple uses to distribute files, not on hoakley has suggested on eclecticlight that it's part of visual lookup.

@eris i say it because people who say "poly" are gross and i don't want to be lumped in with them

@iBender70 @mysk he claimed that i said macos sends info about local photos to apple. i never made that claim. read my article carefully.

@mysk actually you should not spread incorrect information - i never made that claim. read the article again.

police murder a hundred people a month in the USA.

@HSTG i'll never be able to recover the seconds spent reading your reply, sadly
