Facebook, Twitter share and like buttons disabled

Those buttons are fucking spying machines, so I’ve disabled them on this blog. For your privacy, dear reader.

  1. It seems bits of gravatar.com are hardcoded into WordPress. Guess I have to hack my WordPress installation? That sucks a lot.

    So I guess next up is: Removing the Gravatar code and downloading Google’s fonts so they’re retrieved from my server, not from Google’s.

      1. Thanks! Now I removed all the things, the Google fonts, Jetpack, Gravatar, everything.

        WordPress has some calls to Google’s fonts hardcoded (!!!!) into their blog system. This really, really sucks. That means that every single installation of WordPress calls home to Google unless you modify it by hand. Fuck that.
