The Intercept is now a unionized workplace with the Writers Guild of America! #InterceptUnion
"With official hostility to core First Amendment principles reaching a fever pitch, it’s essential that we unite with our colleagues in other newsrooms in order to protect our values. Unions have long played an important role in holding governments and corporations accountable. It’s only fitting that we should carry on that tradition at The Intercept."

Cloak is amazingly simple to use. When your phone joins a WIFI network, cloak auto-enables, passing all your traffic through it.
—reputation system? As in: users could filter users whose rep (as tallied by mastodon.social) is under a specific amount?
—invite-only signup required to contact people on mastodon.social. Possible to get around, of course, but it'll be harder to spin up an account in minutes if you have to get an invite from someone with a good reputation first.
—ghost bans: Mastodon admins can silence users without users knowing. Keeps trolls busy, and they won't think to make a new account.

Why doesn't dogpiling get responded to by a flood of help? Where is the support for women being stalked and threatened? Where are y'all?
I have never in my life been overwhelmed by kindness. But men literally attempt (and often succeed) destroying my life on the daily.
Where are the "good guys"?
(harassment) Wanna know what it's like to be a woman on the internet?
sexual assault / politics
I'm not surprised that a sexual predator would want to comment on another sexual predator's sins and say "he's done nothing wrong".

@cyrinsong one nice thing is that mastodon is compatabile with OStatus and GnuSocial. So at least the protocol has backing from FSF if not this particular server implementation
