@gordon The mastodon.social approach to domain blocks is to avoid them unless:
a) the server is *specialized* for something that breaks our code of conduct
b) or if the volume of individual mod actions required to handle violations from that server overwhelms the mod team
Until that happens, we try to moderate against individual violators
I am truly frightened by how close this is to the tactics of phishing scams. #Google and the #IETF are on the wrong path with this IMHO. https://webmasters.googleblog.com/2019/04/instant-loading-amp-pages-from-your-own.html
Microsoft Edge detects if the Browser runs as Admin (Administrator Mode)
You see it if the Browser is started with Admin rights (or elevated via e.g. Sandbox or back-links from other programs).
This is really a nice feature to warn the user, because whenever you run a program as admin and it opens the Browser, the Browser runs under the same high-level rights.

I mean, I think it's obvious at this point that while the chrome team seems to have good intentions, the company around it is a sleazy, immoral ad company. Being an engineer doesn't make you immune to the policies and incentives of the toxic company you work for.
So not many people I follow appear to have jumped on the Keybase thing at this point. Perhaps as a centralized service, it won't take off as well here.
Sandstorm.io used Keybase.io for app author verification, so I've had one for a while for that purpose, and chatted with a few other app packagers via Keybase Chat. Was kind of hoping to see more people using it in lieu of "private messages" not being a part of Mastodon.
our official announcement is up! https://keybase.io/blog/keybase-proofs-for-mastodon-and-everyone
It is proven! I am ocdtrekkie on Keybase: https://keybase.io/ocdtrekkie/sigchain#f23520929e922ba36aecda293059735a60c08b458b70468a63a37e24e90f93130f
#Google Employees Uncover Ongoing Work on Censored China Search
"...there are still some 100 workers allocated to the “cost center” associated with Dragonfly, meaning that the company is maintaining a budget for potential ongoing work on the plan."
I really wish it was possible to step up the email notifications from Mastodon into high gear: I visit social networks when they notify me people I like posted.
If the network doesn't do that, I don't visit it much. Setting individual email notifications for every post from people I wanted to follow is why I stuck with G+ so many years.
God why is it people can't just fucking enjoy things now without it being all political or inherently right-wing or left-wing or something?
I mean yeah something like, say, enjoying and promoting Mein Kampf is fucked, but that's not the same as liking anime or enjoying some book just cause some asshole wrote it.
