Developers massively influence our Masto-world and they need to understand what it means.
It means - the priority N1 must be:
a) best possible tools for user, giving them safety *AND* way to have active interaction with friendly parts of federation - even in case of most creative and untiring stalker (whitelists, no DMs, etc)
b) best tools for admins to remove abuse as much and as fast as possible (manual approval of new users...).
PS. And kick abusers out of development.
Boost if agree!
Harassment, some masto ideas
Anyway, it's really high time the masto devs invest in harassment tools again
It's been a long time. Too long
I think it's super important that we realize that Mastodon isn't "the next Twitter / Tumblr / whatever". It's not there yet. I was on the ground floor when people were "migrating" to Google Plus, and that went so horribly because we all thought it was gonna kill Facebook tomorrow.
We won't kill *anything* unless we make this a place people want to come to by 1) keeping all oppressors out and 2) making good community / context / posts
@garbados Observe the Razorcat as it tends so carefully to the purring blooms; just the right bit from the yellow, then a swatch from the pink. Follow the Glow Kittens as they gather and organize the fallen prrrps. What higher order guides their work? Mark my words: someone or something is bapping the ecology of this planet.
@Sargoth i am 100% sure we will ultimately need more cats. astrophysicists have recently shown that « what if cats but too much » evaluates to false under all circumstances, after the collision of two neutron cats produced only boops and happiness.
LibreOffice for Plasma will be getting a new look soon courtesy of the LiMux project.
Talking at the LibreOffice Conference 2017 last week, Katarina Behrens explained how she was porting the KDE plugin for the LibreOffice UI to Qt5. The new version of the plugin promises better Wayland and HiDPI support, and will bring back the native Plasma file picker.

As #OpenBSD's de-facto wifi maintainer, I first learned about this WPA problem in June. A simple patch was provided which I could commit with slight modifications.
The original embargo was already 2 months long, and then extended again for 2 months.
The generall public (you) were left in the dark about this for at least 4 months.
This is a very sad state of affairs. It takes the industry much too long to apply a simple patch.
Not a good morning for cybersecurity... KRACK attack affects WPA2, the protocol that runs basically every encrypted WiFi network. https://www.krackattacks.com/
The ROCA attack identifies a massive number of RSA 1024 and 2048 bit keys (including, I'm told, potentially all of those created by a YubiKey 4) are factorable. https://crocs.fi.muni.cz/public/papers/rsa_ccs17
