fuck Alex Jones, there is no requirement for platforms owned by private parties to carry his trash

I had no idea how much thought had put into how it handles traffic, and honestly I give them a lot of credit for not just blocking it outright. blog.cloudflare.com/the-troubl

The best things in life are free, as in freedom :gnu:

RT @RachelTobac@twitter.com
At @defcon@twitter.com hacking conference and just learned how easy it is to physically gain admin access on a voting machine that is used in 18 states. Requires no tools and takes under 2 minutes. I’m concerned for our upcoming elections.

So... There seems to be a common misconception where people assume all of Mastodon has 180,000 users because mastodon.social says it's home to that number of users.

The real number is closer to 1,5 million. Those 180k are only mastodon.social users and there are like... 3,000 other servers?

I wonder what I should do. 🤔

I kinda miss the days of rampant piracy and data hoarding.

We're now living with centralised streaming services that may be a bit more convenient, but are also much more limited in their offering and are run by psychopathic control freaks (a.k.a. "companies") that want to know and influence everything you're doing .

P2P filesharing applications like KaZaA, DC++ and others were a mess, but they were personal, authentic and *fun*.

Recommended #AppOfTheDay is:

Good morning, knuckleheads. Don't forget: modern social media exists to sell your information to ad tech firms so they can segment you, target you, and ultimately dehumanize you. Modern websites use cookies to track your movement across the web so Google and other ad serving platforms can *sell your data*.

Block tracking by any means necessary.

Fight back.
