We fully support the Tusky team with regards to what happened to them recently on GPlay. We're glad you're back!
Many Fediverse apps got a warning about UGC from Google, as they don't understand that our apps are like browsers and don't own the content they display.
GPlay store is important for spreading free and open-source alternatives for many services and apps, and we are depending on it to inform and educate people about FOSS apps that respect their privacy!
Keep going

We have been warned that a free version of #Fedilab has been published on GPlay.

We don't own it and we didn't build that version. If you want to use the app for free, you should only download it from #Fdroid which builds apps from sources.

> “Stealing credentials and data, and publishing source code and proprietary and sensitive information on the web is not protected speech–it is theft and fraud,” said Acting U.S. Attorney Tessa M. Gorman. “These actions can increase vulnerabilities for everyone from large corporations to individual consumers. Wrapping oneself in an allegedly altruistic motive does not remove the criminal stench from such intrusion, theft, and fraud.”

In case you missed it, Google Play recently removed the @Tusky Mastodon app without proper explanation.

Tusky is one of the best Android Mastodon apps, with nothing controversial in it at all. It's quite disturbing that Google can and does act like this.

An alternative and much better way of getting Tusky onto your Android device is by using the independent FOSS app store @fdroidorg

You can find instructions for installing F-Droid here: switching.software/replace/goo

@Neko00001 Montrer son cul, c'est un choix !
Ne pas tenir compte des incidences hormonales masculines voire féminines est aussi un choix !
Le chacun pour sa gueule est l'apanage des mecs et meufs sis, des gens libres, et des grandes familles puissantes, c'est le mal humain !!! Vouloir du pouvoir pour soi, par l'argent, la violence, le cul, ou quoi que ce soit relève bel et bien de l'égocentrisme qui tue l'humanité depuis fort longtemps sur tous les continents.

What’s popular on Facebook? Far-right news and information.

What’s even more popular? Far-right falsehoods.

Those are the findings of a new study out Wednesday from New York University.

The disease and pest control chapter is pretty complete, but I will add one solution for root nematode control: Oyster mushrooms.

Mulching your #garden with woodchips and introducing pleurotus spawn in it will not only provide food for your table but these #mushrooms will trap and eat harmful nematodes.

Good lord, this reminds me why I despise Amazon so much 😣

They're the only ones besides Google with a voice assistant, though. Not to mention they own Twitch, which is where VShojo's talents stream, so...

But wait! Isn't Jeff Bezos soon facing another court case? Because I really hope Amazon gets soon penalized in an effective way that'll push them to stop being evil 😤
