    @melezorus34 true, but totally not expected it from an international professional journal. They should know better.
    Also, it wasn't sharing rather a "connect with us"

    That's why I have uBlock Origin with privacy filter lists. It also keeps devRant from blowing shit over to Facebook.

    @NoMad they probably have something like WordPress underneath or some corporate equivalent of it provided through free edu licencing and someone just slapped some social plugins to make it "modern".

    @melezorus34 exactly what I was alluding to, I just don't think anyone gave a crap about it or even spent any time to implement their own buttons just grabbed the first plugin they found.

    @theKarlisK I don't think it's site devs, I suspect BoomerBook.
