Ended up diving into a little bit of Groovy code this morning. Kudos to the folks over at http://groovy-lang.org for writing such fantastic high-level language docs. I've seen enough crappy docs to really appreciate good ones.
This is a public warning, if your instance (or software) avoids/bypasses user-specific blocks, or post-deletion requests, then bsd.network will block your entire instance. This also includes if you "forgot" to implement it.
An important part of the Fediverse is trust, and violating that trust is a quick way to anger us.
@purism I support anyone who works to spread Linux and freedom of computing to the mainstream but I have to point out that your decision to remove the ability to report abusive behavior on your instance is a bad move.
Abuse reports are a basic function of this network and disregarding this tool means disregarding the community at large.
Without the ability to let you know when one of your members is being abusive your instance will end up being blacklisted and that would be unfair to your paying users.
Zuckerberg desperately trying to rebrand his pig with a fresh gloss of lipstick.
On the one hand, I am happy to hear they're moving away from the News Feed model. As the author states, it is involved in a lot of their worse abuses as a platform. On the other hand, it frustrates me that people don't flock to alternatives. What hinders them??
Managed hosting is when you own and run a site, but the hosting company does the behind-the-scenes tech stuff like installation and updates.

I fired up GHCi (Haskell interactive REPL) the other day and couldn't quit. Neither 'quit' nor 'exit' nor 'q' nor ESC worked.
Then I realized, as a vim user, I know the dark arts.
"No way," I thought.
I type ':' and I shudder. I can feel reality begin to flee away from my periphery as the Cthulhu-call echoes within my skull.
Next I hit 'q', terrifying color and noise abound! "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah-nagl fhtagn -"
I quickly mash 'Enter'. Unnerving silence.
Your periodic reminder that Gmail is constructing a wall around its users, slowly trapping them inside its walled garden. Escape out of it while you still can.
It like Slack and IRC again, but this time the attack is on the most popular federated communication system on the planet.
Technology as expensive as smartphones should have replaceable batteries and be easily repaired by the people who bought the device. When you also consider the environmental impact of producing a smartphone or other electronic device, it should be made to last. Apple/Silicon Valley turned electronics into disposable fashion products.
