Holy crap, google is apparently taking down all/most fediverse apps from google play on the grounds that that some servers in the fediverse engage in hate speech. At least three apps I know of anyway and I'd imagine the others will follow soon under the exact same reasoning.} Seems to be the case with Husky, Fedilab, and "subway" tooter.

this is a scary precedent if google play is going to ban any apps that can in any way be used to access content with hate speech. So what about a forum client, do they take that down just because there is a forum somewhere on the internet posting hate speech?

This is particularly worrisome because for most people Google Play is the only way they understand to install apps at all.

So I upgrade Firefox and I get a “Curated by Pocket” section in my previously-blank new tab view that also has sponsored content in it.

And fuck you, Pocket.

Wenn am Verbannen von TikTok in den USA oder etwa Twitter in China etwas problematisch ist, dann, dass die Macht der Regierungen und der Länder-Stores des Apple-Google-Gespanns offenbar wird.

In einem freien Ökosystem hätten weder Regierungen noch Konzerne diese Verfügungsmacht.

All the world being as I hear very much damped that their hopes of peace is become uncertain again.

This took ages to finish because I got stuck rewriting parts of the app I wasn’t quite happy with, to support the current and future features. I hope I didn’t introduce too many new bugs in the process, but keep an eye out and let me know if anything is behaving oddly!

(Also took ages because I got sidetracked into working on waha06x36.itch.io/soratobu-ol, check that out too!)
