Campbell's law - Wikipedia
"The more any quantitative social indicator is used for social decision-making, the more subject it will be to corruption pressures and the more apt it will be to distort and corrupt the social processes it is intended to monitor."

Blog posts with trailing slashes no longer work in Jekyll 3 · Issue #4440 · jekyll/jekyll
If I understand correctly, the issue (at least as I experienced it on a blog I contribute to) related to how Jekyll 2 constructed permalinks based on the _config.yml's permalink: field:

Jekyll 2 automatically added trailing slashes to permalinks, even if none was provided in the permalink: field;
Jekyll 3 now supports + respects the absence of a trailing slash in the permalink: field.
Without that change, Jekyll was now generating links without a trailing slash, and the links including a trailing slash would 404. Unfortunately, since Google had already indexed links with a trailing slash, those were now 404s.

A blog I contribute to, the Rcpp Gallery, was affected by this -- we fixed it by ensuring our _config.yml had a trailing slash for the permalink: field: RcppCore/rcpp-gallery@70fc860

I think the Jekyll 3 behavior is correct, but this change could have been better advertised / documented, I think.

Also note that with this scheme no-trailing-slash seems to correctly redirect to with-trailing-slash, so both ways of accessing the page seem to be okay.

TrackMeNot is a lightweight browser extension that helps protect web searchers from surveillance and data-profiling by search engines. It does so not by means of concealment or encryption (i.e. covering one's tracks), but instead by the opposite strategy: noise and obfuscation. With TrackMeNot, actual web searches, lost in a cloud of false leads, are essentially hidden in plain view. User-installed TrackMeNot works with Firefox and Chrome browsers, integrates with all popular search engines, and requires no 3rd-party servers or services.

The man who can't face the internet - BBC News
He is realistic though about maintaining his facial anonymity.

"It will end eventually, but when it does I have a solution which I call the Spartacus hack."

In the 1960s film, the slave's identity was protected when many of his fellow slaves stood up and declared: "I'm Spartacus."

Mr Hirshon has adapted that idea for the digital age.

"A couple of years ago, I asked friends to tag pictures of random people, animals, minerals with my name and flood Google with them.

"So now, when one picture slips through the net, it won't matter because you are not going to be able to tell which one is me."
