I grew for years and kept my head down, still do. I never looked at forums, never ordered grow stuff online etc etc etc 

it didn’t seem like unnecessary risks were worth it, given the fines and the possible risk of doing time..

In the strangest of years (which was 2020), amid lockdowns and crazy times, and changing laws around the world, allowing greater use of our treasured plant, I ended up here.

Think I just stopped caring at some point that my internet activity will portray those actions I tried to hide for many years..

So, here’s where I’m at...

I want to get off google and the like..

and we need a new ‘utube’ that isnt censored by the evil overlords 

I also need a new laptop/ tablet but I want out of apple too 

What do people here use for safer surfing and any ideas on how to ‘get out of the system’ would be greatly appreciated..

sorry I hope you kinda get what i mean though I know I could’ve put it simpler (too stoned already 🙄)

Of course the first step is to avoid google and switch to Duck Duck Go. No tracking your searches and no advertisements yet and it’s been 3 years. I recommend everyone here switch!

@chillbert, good day to you. I said fuck it this last year and before too. I've brought everything and anything off the net. I've looked up everything on the net. I use Google because it's everywhere. I don't care. And I didn't try to hind it, but I didn't go waving my freak flag either. Seeds are souvenirs, until sprouted, grow lights aren't illegal depends what they're above. So with many people in the world being defiant, do they really have the time fuck with me? My plant count is min, it's not a commercial grow, I don't display Cannabis Lover Lives here. But yesterday going to the gas (petrol) station and a big bad ass truck with the words "Fuck (political opponent name) he's Destroying this Fucking country, in big bright letters for all to see. So I'm going to do what I do and try and be good to my fellow man even if I don't agree with what he writes on his truck. The world is too big and life is too short. Pls enjoy. I'll look into Duck Duck, thanks Monkey. Sorry didn't mean to get political, won't do it again.

Ive never looked at it this way because i refuse to believe what i am doing is wrong and the small grow i have wouldnt even do me justice .althought its not something im legally not allowed to do. Am i an idiot ? Lol What the opposition fails to realize is that you can grow produce yet ppl buy theirs , you can brew beer yet ppl buy theres its all about them manipulating the market. I guess whatever works . duck duck go sounds interesting and i am aware of vpn. I buy small quantities of product separately throughtout time that last me for the current grow and possibly second . i enjoy some good smoke and leave the rest in gods hands.....

I use Duck Duck Go now and then when I looking for info that Google wont show you like the death trail some of the vaccine companys have left behind them before they started making covid Vaccines, things like that, but to be honest since I joined Percys I dont really use search engines much now and iv lost interest in posting covid stuff on twitter, it just leads to arguing that I dont need and iv never been affected by lockdowns or anything since it all started anyway, all Im interested in now is learning to grow and I can find all the info I need right here at Percys.

I bought kingdom come deliverance a couple of weeks ago and iv searched for tips and help about it on Bing a few times but thats all I use search engines for now.

I am going to stop buying things for my grow from amazon tho cos their packaging is a fuckin joke, I bought a small dehumidifier off there a few weeks ago and it wasnt even packaged, it was sent in its box with a picture of the dehumidifier on it and my address label stuck on the box!!! Arseholes.

@chillbert This is a very good post and I Don’t use Twitter, Facebook or any other platforms, I have always been very quiet on social media. I only used a fishing forum and they were getting nasty😤 on a fucking fishing website terrible, so obviously I left them. Now I have been at Percy’s for a year and it’s like I have good friends here😃 I will just keep doing what I am doing and enjoy a friendly Percy’s community that makes me happy. Regarding security on anything u use if u feel u need it, get a VPN they are only a few pounds a year. Chillbert I hear u with apple, I got new ear phones from them, had them a few weeks and the left ear has no sound already 😂 they were not cheap ones either at over a hundred pounds lol. monkey idea of changing to Duck Go sounds good to me 👍
