I will NOT be joining new ROKU Forum

I keep getting nagging messages to make sure my email matches my Roku(s)

I will not COMPLY

I will not have Roku doing even more SPYING on me, then selling data on me without my real consent (consent with a gun to your head).

I suggest others also refuse to comply.

It needs to match so they can verify you are a legit Roku customer as a spam prevention.
Not everything is a conspiracy.  I mean, they already have your email address, what more does matching it with your Forum profile do?  "Oh know!  They now know my problems with the device!!!"

The arcade game was awesome.  I played a ton of that as a kid.

Krull, go in peace. I think you're off base, but you are entitled to your feelings and beliefs.

Re: I will NOT be joining new ROKU Forum

I mean, he's not wrong here about the data collection, it's fairly rampant... check out my DNS blacklists (for the IoT "untrusted" VLAN):


The only device(s) we have which are anywhere even close as chatty would be the Google Home smart speakers, but we have four of them compared with a single Roku TV and they still generated less (combined) requests than the tv.  I highly recommend everyone implement some form of DNS blacklisting on their networks.  I've found Pi-hole to be both wonderful and fairly easy to set up, but is by no means the only way to approach this.
