@tertu yeah, it used to be a lot more lax in the past which was... very awkward, at best! sometimes such replies can show up anyways, which I don't understand why, but I think almost always it's b/c of the unboosting glitch
(if you unboost a toot, it will _remain_ in everyone's home timeline at that position, but the "boosted by" information is removed. it can be very, very regrettable)
@revenant damn!! a harsh read though imho, haha! I've read Ralf say in an interview he'd like to have a collection of their first three albums to bring them back to the forelight, which I think would be great. they're really good!! so is their (only?) pre-Kraftwerk album https://www.discogs.com/Organisation-Tone-Float/release/133960
@revenant this lone image says so much about the still un-set aesthetics that later became their defining image. retroactively, I always took it for granted that they had that style since Autobahn (especially since their first three albums are essentially as obscured as Underworld's first two, AND their huge collection release uses a unified art style for all of their electronic albums)

@blackle I gotcha! I guess I never realized that limitless demos were such a thing. it always seemed to me that it was more of a subversive element. perhaps either it's shifted over time- or I conflated the fact of hard limits on old computers with something that was seen as required?
