Sure! All the stinking (sorry, still disgusted by the time it took me to
figure it out)...

[Sure! All the stinking] SPDY and HTTP2 have come to existince for that
freaking sole reason! They're not there other then to push content onto
users! And probably more, but I'd need loong more to get to know more
about those.

I studied it, and you can read about my conclusions in the matter here:

SSL Decode & My Hard-Earned Advice for SPDY/HTTP2 in Firefox

and partly I posted on this Wireshark ML about it:

The SSL tcp stream decoding in Users' Manual?

Well, let's fight to make it illegal again, then!...

I've been spending dedicated time in duration of weekends to weeks,
several times a year, for a number of years already, just to learn these
mechanisms... (and I'm not surely there yet)

Let's fight to make it illegal again, all that snooping! Just like Bruce
Schneier said somewhere: let's take the internet back!

The guy, I don't remember his name, that started this thread and wants
to attack the users of his company, he is just one of many, but still
make me feel disgusted.

Let's take the internet back!

Yes it means taking on the big players (primarily), but that is exactly
what may be, very slowly, starting to be happening.

Such as Edward Snowden is simply not anymore dismissed easily by any
half serious media...

Such as the Safe Harbor (data going from Europe to U.S. and archived
there) having been struck down by the European Court of Justice, thanks
to, IIRC, Maximillian Schrems (again, IIRC), so Facebook will have to
play by the EU rules from now on, and not stash all of its harvests in
the U.S. ...

Help your users, don't launch attacks on them, but help them to learn to
fend off attacks and maintain their privacy, if you can!
