I don't know where they go

You don’t have to post RTs on Mastodon— you can just start your own conversation here Show more
Fun fact: you don’t have to port entire thoughts and arguments and points from the birdsite in the inherently aggressive and argumentative tone that they use over there to discuss something that’s important to you. You can start a whole new conversation, here, on the same subject, using CWs and also just talking about it with your own words! In fact, I encourage everyone to do that!
On people dropping out of Mastodon: You need to keep finding more people to follow in an interest based network since people will be dropping out all the time. Your relatives and friends from school don’t disappear as quickly on Facebook, nor do journalists and news outlets disappear on Twitter, but in the more interesting and interest-based communities, that’s simply how it is. You need to replenish the pool and keep finding and following more people. They’re everywhere.
A collection of things I made for people new to #Mastodon, based on questions I commonly see in the public timelines during influxes of new folks. :)
What the heck with these privacy settings? https://cybre.space/@cassolotl/98998860005309510

It seems the publishing industry has reached a point where they're so cash-strapped and so beleaguered by ad fraud, that they feel they have to run a ton of code to:
- fingerprint you
- detect ad-stacking and other scams
- detect how long or if the user has looked at the ad
… all of which leads to the familiar "I just loaded a news article, why is my fan spinning?"
If you're already chewing up the user's CPU to try to make money, cryptocurrency miners sorta feel like the logical conclusion.
Wait, Facebook is literally pushing a VPN solution that claims to "protect" you?
A VPN that sends all your traffic through facebook's servers
How dumb do they thin... 33 million installs... Okay they might be right about how dumb people are
if you have a personal web log, please reply with the url!
an attempt to collect everyone’s blogs - so as to not let precious non-commercial content go unread and unnoticed - is likely the only time i’ll ever ask:
please boost this toot.
Instance idea: anonymous dot zone
the goal is to be anonymous. if you post enough information to be identified, you will be instabanned, and a physical letter will be sent home to you detailing what you posted and how it traced back at you
Believe it or don’t...
Last November or so a woman disappeared while jogging. This happens in France too often, actually, and always at remote bike paths or ag trails or whatever.
In this case, the woman’s body was found some days later in the woods, immolated. News started showing the husband and the woman’s family, hugging and crying. But as soon as I saw the husband and the way he was acting, I said to my wife, he’s guilty.
Last night I learned he confessed.
Trees are real good
They're there if you need something to lean on
They're there to protect you from the rain and the sun
They've been there long before you were and they will be there long after
They've seen so much
And they say so little
Trees are good friends
Il est bien connu que les #microentrepreneurs doivent faire attention aux escrocs se faisant passer pour des services administratifs.
Ce site ne me donne pas confiance pour sa validité. Pas du tout.
C'est quoi, ce design incongru avec URSSAF ? Pffft. Et lien... Et Java Server Pages 🙄
Spoke too soon. It requires .NET. That’s not going to work for me. And I’m skeptical of the ‘2013’ date on it. Fuck.
Anybody know if Twitter will just delete tweet history for you if you go through the motions of deleting the account. I would think so if they wanted to free up the handle.
#Zuckerberg on #wellbeing and #happiness:
“we’ve gotten feedback that public content – posts from #businesses, #brands and #media – is crowding out the personal moments that lead us to connect more with each other.”
(but) #Facebook’s #algorithms explicitly selected the #objectionable content (because of its) astonishing #profitability..
In the end, it’s just an #advertising company pretending to be a social service, and no amount of #corporate cant can disguise that.
