re: TruthSocial, Fediblock, pol adjacent 

@esi @kris

Kris@thereslife said "Blocking instance is ridiculous. People should be free to block account not to be forced."

I have previously blocked the entire "theres.life" domain from my account, yet here they are commenting on my post. Why? Are they ignoring my block? Are they not respecting it?

So the only way I can get theres.life blocked is if the instance admin did so.

In other words, by ignoring my own block kris@thereslife is actually giving a textbook example of why instance-level blocking is needed for malign instances.

@amolith
It's a Cloudflare bug - but I'm not giving up on fingerprinting protection. Cloudflare benefits from fingerprinting users -who'da guessed?

just droppin' some TRUTH right here:

you can remove all mastodon assets and repaint interface a hundred times, it doesn't become less mastodon, which licence you brazenly violate!

crypto bullshit 

>It is impossible to know which NFT transfers are the result of sales, and which are merely wallets moving or consolidating their NFTs. Therefore, we cannot force every transfer function, such as transferFrom() in ERC-721, to involve a royalty payment as not every transfer is a sale that would require such payment. We believe the NFT marketplace ecosystem will voluntarily implement this royalty payment standard to provide ongoing funding for artists/creators.

Yeah good luck with that, uniswap got forked immediately to remove their developer dividend

Uniswap is still popular, but you can't expect that people won't want to make NFT marketplaces that won't respect the spec

Dear Internet, I'm helping an old man who's almost blind. His computer is really important to him, but he's losing what's left of his sight rapidly. He uses Windows on a normal PC. Can anyone recommend tools/settings/software I can help him try? #a11y #toot

For what it's worth Tech Dirt and @mmasnick
are great to follow on the topic of decentralized social networks.

Amusingly, it looks like Truth Socials's terms of service will absolutely moderate user content. BuT WhAt AbOuT "FrEe SpEeCh?!"

I am doing another collection for @Sbarry8520. His house was hit by a storm. The aim is to collect 40.000 GMD, which is about 670€ or 780$. We already have 200€. If you want to participate, get in touch to talk about the money transfer. Afterwards I will send the full amount to Gambia. Boosts are very welcome :)

Computer repair trick of the trade 

A similar trick to avoid entering Microsoft Accounts when first installing/resetting Windows 10 Home is to use the email address "example@example.com" and anything as the password, this email address has been blocked and falls back to allowing you to enter details for an offline account x

If you're very confident running your own server, you can self-host your own instance of any Fediverse platform.

Here are some installation instructions for advanced users:

BookWyrm (Goodreads alternative)
docs.joinbookwyrm.com/installi

Friendica (Facebook alternative)
friendi.ca/resources/installat

FunkWhale (music and podcasts)
docs.funkwhale.audio/installat

Mastodon (Twitter alternative)
docs.joinmastodon.org/admin/pr

Mobilizon (Facebook Events alternative)
docs.joinmobilizon.org/adminis

PeerTube (YouTube alternative)
docs.joinpeertube.org/install-

PixelFed (Instagram alternative)
docs.pixelfed.org/running-pixe

WriteFreely (Medium alternative)

If you're not an advanced user, or if you don't like doing server maintenance/installation, try one of the easier options mentioned in previous posts in this thread.

Mastodon, why is it so hard to find the place to click if you want to expand a thread from a post which has nothing but a picture?

no-vaxxers 

I feel like most arguments about personal freedoms and risk miscommunication are just smoke in people’s eyes. It all boils down to one fact: There’s a vast group of people who have enjoyed pretty much no limitations in their lives (often imposing arbitrary limitations onto other groups) and, as soon as there was a couple of basic requirements that would apply to them as well, they got angry and offended. Pretty much every other argument is an attempt to rationalize that feeling.

climate/extinction politics 

"Governments still plan to produce more than double the amount of fossil fuels in 2030 than what would be consistent with limiting global warming to 1.5°C, in stark contrast to increased climate ambitions and net-zero commitments."
