I had a StatusNet account until Evan killed identi.ca years ago; a shit-ton of great people I talk with here every day have accounts on Pleroma or GNU Social. Some are their developers.
#Mastodon benefited handsomely from there being a large community of dedicated people in Fediverse before Mastodon was a thing. Let's acknowledge that and stop being so condescending.

I have been spending a lot of my time supporting and helping my friend who has reached a point, after almost 3yrs of bureaucracy, where our immigration have rejected her 2yo sons visa because the cost of his disability is a burden.

This is a critical anti-fash push.
Finally had some time for my Sunday fresh market run, and then cooking lunch while listening to #DefensiveSecurityPodcast.
This time it was considerably sadder. I am sending all my warm thoughts to Andy, and to @jerry .
Hold in there.
Andy, you're being missed. Get well soon. And @jerry thank you for doing the podcast, it must have been hard and it is appreciated.
Security is difficult and expensive. Even global players like Mozilla can't handle it without some occasional issues.
Now think about ordinary user in random country. How can we make it easier for them?
I wonder if there is some resource, describing all the previous sec. issues, which can be used for learning and proactively improving ecosystem the similar way it works with airline industry.
