I want to thank people here on LR instance.
Earlier today I was a bit frustrated on the amount of complaints we get from other instances because we refuse to take a political stands and refuse to ban users who may post or reply with a political comment that is different from their views.
We have never censored anyone from their political view. We are a linux instance and value open and free and value differences.
Your responses have shown me we are doing things right.
LR Users are awesome
Oh well! The free version of #Fedilab has been removed by Google.
I know people started to report it. But... Why the reason is for "payments policy violation"? I appealed for that but I will not re-upload anything for this version.
Don't forget to get it with #Fdroid: https://f-droid.org/en/packages/fr.gouv.etalab.mastodon/
or the version built from sources. Follow @mastalab for links to apk.
Strangely, the paid version is not *currently* affected.
Don't miss the forest for the trees. This awesome movement away from proprietary social "networking" just won its first battle. A silo has been assimilated. And this is just the beginning. You may not like many of them or what they think or have to say, but you should be glad that more people are now using FOSS federated social networking. You can now tell them what you think of their opinions without some corporation vacuuming up your data. The size of the #mastodon network just tripled.
Reminded that the Microsoft ebook store closes next week. The DRM'd books will stop working.
I cannot believe that sentence.
"The books will stop working."
I keep saying it and it sounds worse each time.
re: hey admins
@luminol this is a terrible idea and would discourage anyone from running their own instance for their own use. a lot of servers have less than 5 users and likely wouldnt make it onto these lists even if theyve done nothing wrong

Interesting read on #matrix privacy issues (reading the official response to it now, linked to the gist). Best case interpretation: even when everyone has the best intentions #privacy is hard (you don't have to be #facebook to slurp up data without explicit consent)
Thanks for writing this up https://www.stavros.io/posts/how-to-configure-wireguard/ after hours of pain (and a few self inflicted difficulties) I somehow used your guide to get a proper VPN tunnel working. Thanks very much!
