As an instance admin, I decided to check out Toot! for iOS. It's $3.99 USD, but after a few hours' use, it is definitely worth it. This is a genuinely pleasant Mastodon experience, and the only feature request I have is the ability to turn off boosts in my home TL. (If that exists already, please point me to it!)

It's funny how many people believe me to be 'unreasonable' because I don't coddle white people's bullshit, but those same people stay boosting and liking content that comes off the instance.

Ha, yeah. I see you, sport.

Google still keeps a list of everything you ever bought using Gmail, even if you delete all your emails

Google tracks everything you buy using Gmail to gather the receipts for a Purchases list it saves. It says you can delete this by deleting the email, but three weeks after Todd Haselton deleted all his Gmail messages, the list is still there.

Be warned gab.com just came up o the fediverse and it seems the server already has unauthorized clones of many of the most famous people on the Fediverse.

I have noticed a clone of myself on their servers and I assure everyone it is not me and I do not in any way support the GAB network.

@kaniini I can't help but notice these talking points coming up repeatedly, about the existing *public* #fediverse not protecting privacy. What part of public are people not getting? If folks want fully private federated messaging, they can use networks running #Diaspora, #Zot, #SSB, #XMPP with #OMEMO, or #Matrix with encryption turned on. #OStatus can't do private, and although #ActivityPub can, nobody has implemented it well yet, and its meaningless without encryption (#E2EE).

Intersex Folks (+) 

Maybe I just miss it for the most part, but I don't really see much positivity or even general acknowledgement directed at intersex folks?

So, just wanted to say you're all awesome and send love and positivity to the intersex folks that I know are out there because you fucking deserve it. πŸ’—

Someone did the whole "well Africans sold slaves too"

forgetting that 1) the kind of prisoner exchange allowed for memberhood into tribes / countries in Africa and 2) they DIDN'T DEHUMANIZE PEOPLE LIKE THE EURO FRICKS

do not twist history in front of a anti-revisionist historian - get OUT of here with that

Getting quite some reports that #Tusky shows polls attached to the wrong statuses and statuses liked/boosted that actually are not? This sounds like a serious issue that should be fixed asap, I have never seen it myself however.
Any hints on when this happens or even steps to reproduce are highly appreciated

"New research estimates that a worldwide tree planting programme could remove two-thirds of all the emissions that have been pumped into the atmosphere by human activities, a figure the scientists describe as β€œmind-blowing”". Let's get planting! 🌳🌳🌳

I feel that with the invention of 3D printers that we have 2 and 3 dimensions covered well enough but are severely lacking on 1D options.

I intend to design a 1D printer capable of printing out a string in any combination of colors you want.
