hey i wrote script to make it less tedious for instance administrators to add alt-right / lolicon / etc instances to their domain blocklists to help keep the good-faith fediverse vibes rolling along. Big shout out to @dzuk for maintaining a well-researched and thoughtful blocklist.
People will argue that using DMs on here is unsafe because the admins of servers can view it. Arguably, you should use DMs for no more than you should be using them on any platform that doesn't encrypt them end to end, like Twitter.
It's about assessing your own operational security risk. Use DMs like private messages on Slack or a forum. Use Signal or another encrypted messenger if privacy is highly important.

...any others to share?
From a business perspective I can't make a case for a Don app yet. We've got too much other stuff on our plates.
If there's enough interest I can set up a Patreon for me to get something ported up to MVP level over nights and weekends.
Note: Any actual app would be paid, likely subscription based (not a fan of them but makes sense here for various reasons).
