So hey, Sophos is really screwing up here.
I would advise you to dump them if at all possible. https://mastodon.hasameli.com/media/RrQep2CqcTcrphzyhJM
This may get Nofftopia's domain blocked but... Nofftopia won't block other domains. I am very anti-censorship and pro freedom of speech. If you personally do not like what someone is saying - it's /your/ right to block them. If the nonsense continues, then I'll mediate, but I will not force my will on others. Give peace a chance! ✌🏼❤️
ProjectImplicit shows implicit or unconscious biases we all have. Since we can't change the existence of bias, the best way forward ist to make ourselves aware of it, moving from unconscious bias to conscious one, so that we can compensate. I highly recommend taking the test, if you have somewhere to run Flash in a safe env.
I don't even think people *realize* what has happened here: a sketchy VPN company has incrementally taken over one of the most critical pieces of infrastructure for FOSS (freenode) and also a major social network (Snoonet).
WHY DOES A VPN COMPANY CARE ABOUT THIS STUFF? WILL HOLDING THESE PROPERTIES SELL MORE VPN ACCOUNTS?!
If this situation seems screwy to you, boost the hell out of it so people find out and can ask more questions.
When (WHEN) it is verified that Private Internet Access is affiliated with the intelligence community, I will be over here on truly open platforms (Mastodon, Matrix) laughing about it.
One needs to be very concerned about why a private corporation is buying up social infrastructure connected to FOSS and its offshoots.
Currently the only difference is that I now struggle to stay within 500 characters instead of 140. For all of the change in the world, everything remains the same.
I thought I wanted to be different on mastodon vs. other social networks. Alas, I am falling into old habits and being largely read-only.
Be glad that you aren't missing out on much, as I would probably only toot about whatever random, half-baked, never-to-be-finished side-project I happen to be hacking on at the moment.
Currently: A bittorrent tracker written in go.
Previously: A single-user only federating social network thing with plugins in js.
You're welcome for not tooting more.
