"The Software Freedom Conservancy (SFC) says former President Donald Trump’s new social network violated a free and open-source software licensing agreement by ripping off decentralized social network Mastodon. The Trump Media and Technology Group (TMTG) has 30 days to comply with the terms of the license before its access is terminated — forcing it to rebuild the platform or face legal action."

why doesn't #isurf see magnet links? this shouldn't be an 'invalid' protocol

like magnet:?xt=urn:btih:74e63e7a95df9afe26cb88c4924a46748dba4de9&dn=Alex%20Jones%20Documentaries&tr=udp%3a%2f%2fudp-tracker.shittyurl.org%3a6969%2fannounce&tr=udp%3a%2f%2ftracker.openbittorrent.com%3a80%2fscrape&tr=udp%3a%2f%2fopentracker.i2p.rocks%3a6969%2fannounce&tr=http%3a%2f%2fopentracker.i2p.rocks%3a6969%2fannounce

#moesmalware : the SK Vax Verifier App is #unsafesoftware and should not be used by anyone. The source code does not appear to be available, and is certainly not linked to at the google play store.

@schnits github does not count as open source
@schnits ie the fact that they would use github for this is a giant flashing red flag

it allows you to manually try to remote follow but then says

Like ABTraceTogether, MySaskHealthRecord is a proprietary blob, and their app is unsafe software - no one should be using it, no one should be using it to scan QR codes, no one should be using it to create QR codes - no one should be using it, period

You should treat it as state-sponsored malware, and not install it on any device. Don't let friends and family use it, or recommend its use


#isurf doesn't see @becassine@kiwifarms.cc as a valid account #bug

fascinating

1) #isurf changes hashtags to hard links
2) even when federated, it *still* doesn't correctly tag kiwifarms users


One thing I'm noticing in the other thread(that most of you on the left can't see probably) is how uphill of a battle we have now, because the second generation leftist fedi instance admins have blocked all the right-wing instances on the network they can. How much prolonged damage we've done to the civilization that this network represents, by cutting out voices in this way. The right wing will judge us, as a group, for a long time because the particular people who were able to get their instances up so early, as luck would have it, also had such thin skin. Woe for us, and our ability to reach peaceful, consensus and woe on our ability to check our own excesses.

Canada's government is poised to pass a "harmful content" regulation. It's a worst-in-class mutation of a dangerous idea that's swept the globe, in which governments demand that hamfisted tech giants remove broad categories of speech - too swiftly for meaningful analysis.

Many countries have proposed or passed rules on these lines: Australia, France, UK, Germany, India.

This forecloses on the goal of whittling tech giants to size through interoperability, ending the possibility that co-operatives, nonprofits and startups could independently manage their own spaces that were still connected to the platforms.

Canada is not alone in planning to convert the tech giants into constitutional monarchs, offering them perpetual dominance in exchange for suffering themselves to be regulated in how they rule our digital lives.
