@rach a company called purism, which is a pretty good company which is high praise from me considering i fucking hate companies, is setting up a suite of services based on open technology, including "social" based on mastodon and "chat" based on matrix, and they hired Eugen to do some customizations for their Mastodon fork, and one of them was to remove the reporting functionality.

people are upset because they feel like the rebranding is shady (it's not really, it's just not clear enough yet) and assume they're not contributing upstream (they are) but the reporting thing is An Issue and a bunch of instances are blocking it because of it

@anna If you use blerama you can upload just quaratine so they don't receive any non public posts. Mastodon's moderation tools are a bit all-or-nothing. @rach

@knotteye @anna @rach@cybre.space The Purism fork rejects all non-public posts. They don't want to store anything private

@Gargron @knotteye @rach yeah i get this one. purism sells a lot of security hardware, i see why they wouldn't want their name on something that is marked as "private" or has lock icons but is not end to end encrypted
