And Tiny Tiny RSS can generate public feeds for articles you tell it to. This means that, if people add my generated feed, I can recommend *any* article, whether the source is a direct RSS feed or something I've added from wallabag, and it will show up in their feed reader :thonking:

We all know that Google (with Chrome-ium) has at least close to 90% of the browser marketshare on the internet.

Which is your primary browser on your computer?

Remember that Brave, Opera and Edge are Chromium derivatives. I consider Safari to be separate since it's Webkit and not Blink.

Retoot this to get more votes in.

#GMail is harmful to e-mail ecosystem; its antispam blocking policy matches too many valid messages as spam.

It blocked LastPass email leak warning email, because it contained "a link" to a leaked site.

It blocked an e-mail from goverment agency addressed directly to me.

It discriminates all non-gmail servers, and it's pretty much impossible to own a private SMTP server these days, because GMail will classify everything as spam.

It's not how e-mail should work.

Consider dropping GMail.

Hello fediverse! lib.reviews/ is a free/open/nonprofit alternative to proprietary review sites like #Goodreads, #Yelp, #IMDB.

It plugs into #opendata sources: #Wikidata, #OpenLibrary and #OpenStreetMap (OSM integration is very basic at this point). Still a long way to go but we have a small community and lots of reviews already.

My dearest Android users, do not stuck in Google's monopoly! Do not stuck in their ecosystem. Come out from that.

Learn how to get root access to your mobile device and try your best to move to an "Open Source" and bloatware free OS like LineageOS.

Never use Google Play or Play Services craps. They are spying on you!!! Try F-Droid & AuroraStore.
