Facebook just announced it has permanently banned a number of “dangerous" alt-right and anti-Semitic trolls, including Louis Farrakhan, Alex Jones, Paul Joseph Watson, Milo Yiannopoulos, and Laura Loomer.
Facebook had removed the accounts, fan pages, and groups affiliated with these individuals after it reevaluated the content that they had posted previously, or had reexamined their activities outside of Facebook, the company said.

Online shopping is going to be through the roof this month, and you’d better believe that hackers know it. If you’re going to invest in a virtual private network, now is the time.

Cheap massage chairs are a common Christmas gift, but we’re willing to bet they don’t get a lot of actual use from the people who could really use a massage.
