I'm one of those people who believes that, "Trust isn't something you earn - it's something you lose".

With respect to blocks and filtering, If you think that I advocate against those necessary tools and features, you couldn't be more wrong.

It's where they're implemented and especially how, and with what deference given to the prominence of such disclosure, that I am passionate about.

Anyone who has known me for years knows that I'm a fierce kick/ban Bofh ;)

Just sayin' :)

mps-youtube is the best thing ever. All the goodness of youtube without the horrible web design of youtube.

(Make sure to set search_music off and show_video on, though.)

There is no mention of these blocks across wide swaths of the Fediverse at either the Google Playstore or at F-Droid.

Immature script kiddies.

Fortunately, it's 'd, and a solid, maintained fork has appeared in the playstore:

Kudos to F-Droid and for their respective positions on the role of FOSS.

It ain't free if it's censored, and for that reason, I believe 's description should include a clear advisory that it blocks and censors entire portions of the .

It's no surprise this has led to at least two forks of Tusky already - users should be informed of the restriction and limitations imposed upon them.

Well there's been a lot of frenetic discussion and misunderstandings about the latest SPAMming of the recently.

Hello, I'm taking the time to notify a few people I follow about a dangerous post whereby 1600 Immigrations employees were doxed here in the fediverse, in hopes you can put this info into many hands - I've already called the FBI.

Here is the profile that doxed the innocents: and here is a profile that boosted it:

you can see those toots/boosts that I reported the profile and I hope you take the time as well to do so.

Yesterday, Youtube froze Kody Kinzie's longrunning Cyber Weapons Lab channel, citing a policy that bans "Instructional hacking and phishing: Showing users how to bypass secure computer systems."

This is a war on infosec and the ability for users to be informed of the security and vulnerability of the systems they use. will never ban infosec videos. Help us educate users by using our import tool to move your videos before they are blacklisted!

Still no perfect, lightweight solution, aside from full blown I guess, but considering that has been foundering the past few years since handed it off, I came across which fits a portion of my needs:
