NEW: @eff @team dozens of global human rights groups have signed on to #ProtectTheStack, urging infrastructure level entities like payment processors, app stores, ISPs, and CDNs to uphold free expression and avoid content specific censorship protectthestack.org

@freemo she said it all at the end: "...and I don't need someone like you on my wiki. Goodbye." Yes, 'her' wiki. One person's opinion should not be used represent the entire fediverse (as she so fondly thinks it, apparently). This goes for the CEO, as well.

Hoping the #ufoi becomes the standard to which everyone looks for in an instance before signing up. I see a lot of potential in this fediverse stuff and we don't need the few dictating how the majority should feel.

A woman was arrested for "chemical endangerment" for using drugs while pregnant. The problem: She wasn't pregnant. So officers released her, but told her if she gets pregnant in the next few month she will be re-arrested.

The people who told us we were overreacting when Roe was overturned were never arguing in good faith and also they were very wrong.

@Amikke It is often the case that the loudest people are the most toxic.

@stemid Worse yet among their own people, AND among people trying their hardest to be allys.... People like this do more to harm the movement they intend to help more than anything from the outside.

I liked this video “Kanye West Just Defended Hitler So Much It Even Freaked Out Alex Jones… & Today’s News” youtube.com/watch?v=qTqqz4lp7C

Almost all 'big' App Store providers like Google and Apple require content moderation for apps like Twitter & Mastodon, even the European Union said this to Elon and Twitter..

This is not to withhold content but to set some boundaries to prevent a wild online west and I totally agree!

You cannot put a platform out there for people to use and hold your hands off it, be responsible for the content you host and take action where and when needed :cat_hug_triangle:

“Elon Musk should pay taxes” now considered by Twitter T&S to be hate speech.
Or, Elon has his hands on the levers directly

"For the crime of enjoying and writing fiction, I’ve been labeled a predator. Or, even more erroneously, a “pedo”. Nevermind that my enjoyment has nothing to do with attraction to cartoon characters (let alone real children)." buff.ly/3fYOkOY

So apparently as part of the "spam purge" this morning in which tons of Twitter accounts were mistakenly suspended, Twitter suspended the two biggest Elon stan accounts (until people complained and they were reinstated). 😂

you know what group Hitler also was notoriously eager to murder? the mentally ill.

"The United States Congress should not be the Pentagon’s Santa Claus. But even if it were, who writes a second letter to ask for more when they’re already on the naughty list?" breakingdefense.com/2022/12/th

"To normal people, a 'trend' means something that happens with some frequency. And yet the FBI offers no data to suggest that abductions by Uber, Lyft, or other rideshare drivers are actually widespread."

BREAKING: The Senate has passed the Respect for Marriage Act, a historic move forward in the rights of LGBTQ families.

The bill ensures federal recognition of marriage regardless of the sex, race, ethnicity, or national origin of either spouse.

The EU, UK, and various states are pushing "protect the children!" laws that will effectively mandate age verification technologies for most websites.

Turns out the French data protection agency (which doesn't mess around) has said that all existing age verification technologies violate people's privacy...
