Hi Fediverse 👋

it's @tobias here, broadcasting via this new fediverse account representing (formerly) #switchingsocial 🎉

Please follow, dm and @ this account for everything related to the English version ... as @swisode wants to write German posts again 😁

It's been one week since the #shutdown. There hasn't been any news from the original author yet. So, I believe, it's on us to keep this project alive.

Please stay tuned as I'll ask for support here - after some more preparations. 💻


@switchingsoftware @swisode @tobias I'm glad you condemn change .org (switching.software/replace/cha), but there is a much better reason to avoid than what you give. Change.org is a site, which means ppl are *excluded* from signing . Petitions to be available to all ppl. CF is also a privacy abuser, so supporting a good cause becomes entangled w/a bad actor.

@tobias @swisode @switchingsoftware note that has the same problem (). Consider suggesting thepetitionsite.com as an ethical and inclusive alternative

Yes that is the big problem with these so-called sites.

The petitions they produce are not even strictly legal because real need to be signed by hand in .

We tell people to haunt , high traffic areas and to have your petition signed.

Person to person.

Btw how did you work out change (dot)org is Cloucflare? Twas elusive to us.

...and then we tried visiting the site directly and was blocked by . :(

Thanks for the tip off, @aktivismoEstasMiaLuo.

These people are experts at . They really have it 'down to a fine art'.

@dsfgs @tobias @swisode @switchingsoftware there are a couple plugins for dealing with sites. This one detects CF sites & automatically redirects to a cached version of the page: addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firef This plugin detects & refuses to load pages from your choice of CF, AWS, MS, Google, etc: gitlab.com/gkrishnaks/cloud-fi
