@freakazoid Yes. The importance of Google ad revenue for companies like Mozilla also still gives me the creeps in many possible ways.

@rimute well maybe a tiny bit, but for the last 1000 years Christians have been persecuting meany meany people hardcore. Its not anywhere close to a balance. Maybe Christians should turn the other cheek.

Its a open media network kinda in the name. the is power in open. We do need parrael closed media networks such as scuttalbutt as though they have less power and outreach they are needed for more spiky actions which have powerfull direct affect. The two sides of open/closed clearly support each other and are MUCH more powerfull togather :)

The fediverse is a public forum.

Your posts are only as secure as the admins of every instance that your home server federates with, in terms of private and followers-only messages.

If you're going to talk about sensitive information, keep it to Signal or other secure 1-on-1 channels.

Assume that everything you post to the fediverse, is being scooped up by multiple gov agencies around the world.

The Milan scrape was only notable because they made their findings public.

If a university scraping feeds did it, it's safe to assume other, bigger organizations have been doing it for much longer.

@ajeremias @Hamishcampbell @directpositiveaction @parleur @Diffu that sounds dangerously like a post truth statment. Am sure you do not mean to go there. Tell us a bit about your background if you like.

@ajeremias @Hamishcampbell @directpositiveaction @parleur @Diffu yep, spiky and fluffy need to not pick up there ideas and lifestyles and hit each side with them. We need to clearly move away from our deadended and away from the agenders of our careerists. The are real blocks to overcome and the biggest current blocking is the signal to noise ratio. are a tool for focus.

@ajeremias @Hamishcampbell @directpositiveaction @parleur @Diffu we are all ready in the future you fear, the question now is how do we move away from it. We can't keep doing the same crap from any of the sides that currently push agenders.

@witchescauldron @parleur @Diffu @ajeremias SSB is a reasonable choice because of the offline first aspect. It would be difficult to disrupt or block SSB networks, which don't even necessarily need the internet.

The one down side which you might encounter is that on a phone SSB/Metaverse uses gigabytes of storage, which is more than my phone has. I bet many people will be using older phones like mine.

Avoid idolatry. Shun monarchs, oligarchs and social media influencers. Disbelieve the purveyors of manufactured opinion.
