@guizzy @lain I'm really pretty tired of this "Pleroma/GNU Social/SomethingElse is Nazi software/space" bullshit.

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.

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.

time! I'm a hacktivist, free software advocate, strong supporter of free and open internet. Used to be a policy hacker. Co-founded the Warsaw Hackerspace.

Currently trying to make sure journalists at @OCCRP have the tools and training to safely expose corruption and organized crime.

Also, I bake bread, sail, and dance Lindy Hop. So, there's that.

This happened:

B: sure, a sec

> example.com disappears from the nameservers completely

Hey here's something about the Fediverse that some people don't take into account:

I see on "hacker" "news" that there is currently discussion about Scuttlebutt and the very clever opinion is that oh no, distributed social is worse than FB/Twitter because nothing is stopping BigScaryCorp from scooping up all your public posts.

Ignoring the fact that you can very easily have a locked account or even one that has public AND non-public posts... 1/

Wait, what. Windows 10 sends info on USB devices plugged in directly to Microsoft?

And it does that using pure HTTP?

You gotta be kidding me.

@rysiek I like the french variation of it for decision making which is called "the mc donald law" which works like this: when a group of people doesn't know where to eat, suggest mc donald (which is crap) and suddently everyone will have a better idea.

@angristan So probably the most outrageous thing is that literally the only other case of them shutting anyone down was the white supremacist site. Implicitly saying that sex workers are as bad as white supremacists. Smh
