@rysiek @yunohost By the SSO, you mean the loginscreen? I see two possibilities
1. Choose the domain you want and set it as default
2. You can also use the redirect app and put a 302 from sso.example.org to example.org/yunohost/sso/

For the email domain, all domains you have can be used, but I think a user can't use a domain that it doesn't already has an alias for. Creating a new user will give it a mailaddress with the default domain, but the admin can remove it and add mailaddresses with any domain ynh knows about.

For the first question, I don't know, never tried to change it.

Hi folks! Being a newbie to Mastodon, I welcome all the help you have to offer. I'm looking for a way to ditch Facebook primarily, which I use to keep up with the goings on of my family and friends around the country. My wife and I have been the foster parents for two of our great grandkids for over a year now and use facebook to keep everyone posted on how they are doing. Would love to know how to find out which of my FB friends are on Mastodon. Nice to meet everyone!

Mon frère se retrouve seul bénévole d'un endroit où il faut faire à manger vegan pour une vingtaine de personnes à chaque fois. Il n'a jamais beaucoup cuisiné, encore moins vegan, encore moins pour beaucoup.

Il connaît d'avance les stocks de base (pâtes, riz, protéines de soja...), mais il ne sait pas ce qu'il aura d'un jour à l'autre comme légumes.

Est-ce que vous connaissez des sites de recettes simples qui lui seraient utiles ?

Merci :blobheart:​ (boosts ok)

I need to understand why some instances can be followed (Public toots from the instance itself) and other instances don't seem to have a public stream.

Where is that configured when administering a Mastodon instance?

@rmdes @hs0ucy For me, having an emoji (copied from their indieweb page counterparts) + text such as "Liked/Likes" or "Reposted" is enough.

My issue is more with the markup required by my Micropub client when making a request to a Micropub server.

Mozilla signs fresh Google search deal worth mega-millions as 25% staff cut hits Servo, MDN, security teams

Within hours of the browser maker laying off a quarter of its staff this week, a well-placed source told The Register Moz had signed a three-year agreement with Google. On Thursday, a spokesperson for Mozilla confirmed the partnership had been renewed though declined to go into specific detail on the contract duration and sums of money involved.


Was dispersing the MDN and Rust teams part of the deal?

What a surprise... during this pandemic, while a lot of people lost their jobs, the rich cunts got significantly richer.

Just an idea... but what if those richies actually started to support the other people?
Just a suggestion of course.

Cult-breakers and ARGs 

I’ve heard QAnon being described in terms of being like an alternate reality game, but unlike a normal ARG this one has no end and actively encourages open-mode continuation of the alternate reality by endlessly expanding in to new conspiracies.

There’s an interesting link here between ARGs and cults, specifically cults that have a particular teleology or end-point (like a normal ARG has an end-state). We’ve all heard of the Jonestown cult mass suicides; that’s one way a teleological cult can end.

I have family members who joined a doomsday cult in Bozemon, Montana in the 80s and lived in their underground bunker/fallout shelter (and birthed and raised several children in this situation). They left after the prophesied day of armageddon came and went (twice, having been “rescheduled’ after the first time).

The broader point here is that cult members might self-eject from a cult when the cult’s teleology is “played out”, like reaching the end of an ARG (and assuming the members didn’t come to harm first).

This could be contrasted with cults like Scientology that invented new “theta levels” after Hubbard’s death in order to keep the scam going, again coming back to the open-endedness of QAnon as an alternate reality cult that never ends. But some people “wise up” to their experience in Scientology and leave on their own accord.

To the extent of my reading, the most effective known cult deprogramming techniques work on a one-on-one level and gets an individual to wake up to self-ejecting from the cult. Without getting in to the details of it, this type of one-on-one treatment is good work but obviously outpaced by instrumentalized techno-corporate-web-scale cult programming.

What would an effective scaled-up cult-breaking technology look like? Could it be done humanely? Could it compete without the firehouse of media domination?

I made a thing! Check out the terminal-based podcast manager I made, which just hit v1.0: github.com/jeff-hughes/shellca

This represents the largest coding project I've ever done (so far!), and my first project in Rust, but I'm incredibly proud of the result. Feel free to use, share, and contribute!

conspiracy theory, cults, religion 

@rmdes @vortex_egg I'm glad you shared this story. Thank you for taking the time to write it all for us.

I lived an extremely similar path during my upbringing in '80s-'90s America, and I just wanted to say I feel for you. What my family/family friends were into swung exceedingly close to a cult, too. They got out of it in the early 2000s, but have gone right back in since Obama's reelection, and are now hard-right. I've had to cut ties with all of them, and it hurts every day.

I think your ideas about the causes and solutions are key. I also want to add, there needs to be a study into the religious "hangover" affecting modern society, and how it effectively inoculates society from loving life itself, and the world as it really is. A need to believe in the supernatural/conspiracy theories goes hand-in-hand with an entrenched rejection of the world and a belief that humans are innately bad.

My experience grew out of the New Age movement, which contained a lot of people who had rejected their Christian upbringing without really ridding themselves of a lot of its ethical and social patterns. Abnegation of the human within, and a sense of self-loathing projected onto others, still dominated.

It's still a problem and it's still driving so much of this.

Okay people, we've seen #Mozilla degrade more and more for years, and we've always hoped it will find its way and get better.

Now people working on Developer Tools, #MDN, and the Rust team - arguably some of the most useful and valuable teams at Mozilla - have been laid off, to make space for more profit making activities.

This is utter bullshit.

But perhaps this is also an opportunity. The FLOSS community forked OpenOffice, XFree86, and other huge projects.
