@nolan AMP's rewriting of stuff to be hosted by Google specifically in a way that increases their surveillance, with *pressure* to do so in exchange for a boost in traffic that will absolutely go away anyway once they've forced the entire ecosystem to move over to it, is a sure sign of monopolistic behavior that Google deserves to get hit with an antitrust lawsuit for more than anything else I've seen so far.

FT: "wha- that's not how this works. that's not how any of this works!"
ME: "and the new card is 'the world' upright, meaning I will receive a sense of completion and contentment in my current endeavors!"
FT: "what is going on?!?"
ME: "now I have defeated your evil fortune, so you are banished to the shadow realm"
FT: "please leave my shop"
