@mgrondin @selea btw, free speech? Censoring? Calm down :-)
Take into account that if you silence an instance or ban a user, you are not putting nobody in jail for what they are saying. You are not harming their families, and the like.
It's more like: "hey you! I don't want to hear such shit in my pub. Go to the beside pub and leave us drinking our beers in peace".

I was notified that @tateisu's Mastodon app "Subway Tooter" has received a warning from the Google Play Store citing user-generated content that "incites discrimination".

A Mastodon app does not host or promote any content. The user types the address to connect to. The responsibility of moderating resides with that server. So unless Google is going to drop Chrome, Firefox and Opera from its platform, this is completely out of line.

wild how they legalized the sale of Marijuana yet didn't release any prisoners on drug charges.

i think the honkies buying their weed from an app should be for prison abolition instead of being really into Tesla or whatever the fuck they are doing.

With the US mulling the decision to ban #tiktok, we should also consider banning #instagram and #facebook because they essentially do the same thing: piss all over your privacy while allowing you to be "connected" to people that atrophy helped you get rid of long ago.

Oh, wait, American companies that spy on people are okay and acceptable. It is different when the Chinese do it.

@nathan Damn, not a lot of people answering the call to join the glorious mastodon.

What is your opinion so far of Mastodon's usability? I think it is working quite well!

When people distribute their API documentation as a PDF, you know the only thing worse than their software is their documentation.

Looking at your, EFA.

Still waiting for someone to call me a philistine in an online argument.

"Funes, the Huawei executive, denied the company pays criminal groups for access to its sites, and said Huawei does not permit subcontractors to do so either. He said the company sometimes pays higher rates in smaller markets where it is more difficult to find engineers."

Sure, expect your workers to stand up to a drug cartel, maybe pay them a bit extra for it. Can't see how that goes wrong. At all.

Nerdy rant about Canonical's Livepatch 

"Community (read: not paying) Users of the Canonical Livepatch Service who want to eliminate the small chance of being randomly chosen as a canary should enroll in the Ubuntu Advantage program (starting at $12/month)." (Ubuntu docs)

A friend translated it to:

"this is a dangerous neighborhood, maybe you walk around one day rendering video, maybe your kernel brick because of 'accident'. Better to pay small fee for ... ghow do i say... protection, no?"
