The RMS thing

The GDPR directive gives Ruben the right to request the data Facebook has about him, and ask for its deletion. Facebook refuses to comply with his Subject Access Requests by replying with convoluted, pseudo-legalese prose. Ruben's page tracks his communication with Facebook and provides interesting insights into the curious “legal” maneuvers by Facebook.

"KITTY.TOWN is a small Mastodon instance and community for kind people."

That's a great mission; I always try to be my kindest self. That's why I looked at this instance while searching a new Fediverse home a few months ago.

What I saw was not kindness. The current pinned toots of the admin, @GinnyMcQueen, literally contain "Let them eat CoCs" and "I love cats and hate fascists".

I do not tolerate fascism either, but defining yourself in terms of this? That doesn't make you look kind.

I have asked some months ago, but I think it is time to try again: I am looking for a native American/English partner to translate my novels & texts in English.Ofc, we would share the income from English patronage.
I am fluent enough to check the work but not to do it myself.
My work is based upon Crusade history, murder mysteries & short stories.

Hi @Purism, your shop is using Google Fonts, so you're letting Google know who's visiting it. An oversight?

The final frame is flashing, that looks like a bug in @Mastodon or the lib it uses to convert GIFs to MP4s. Here's the real GIF:

@krita, the aspect ratio is slightly off. Is this fixable without having to do a new release?

@Purism The domain doesn't exist but it is supposed to host your Warrant Canary. Message understood. I'm sorry for your loss.

Finally finished my two blog posts on why I’m weaning myself away from Twitter in favour of Mastodon:

What’s wrong with Twitter?

What is Mastodon and why should I use it?



Hi, nice read, I discovered some channels.

Two small corrections:

* under Morevna project: David DeRoy → David Revoy

* under @davidrevoy : he creates Pepper&Carrot and the universe it takes place in, but he's not involved at all in the Morevna project.

Can you fix that? Thanks :)

Whether that's desirable or not is another question of course.

Seeing these Twitter→Mastodon bots got me thinking. Wouldn't it in theory be possible to create a bot/service that could the fediverse with by posting everything @… to the appropriate user with Twitter's API? Or would that be against some ToS somewhere… 🤔

Is it just me, or is no one at #DWebSummit talking about how we've centralized the development of decentralized SW and #OpenSource generally on the proprietary services of GitHub? (And repeating mistakes of the past!)
