@Shamar @alice Just FYI, I finally wrote that blog post (in two parts) about Boehm-Berarducci encoding of algebraic data types in Raku.

The others seem fine, but I call BS on that. The post says:

> When optimising a site for search engines, we are helping people find the information they want quickly and easily. When SEO is successful, it results in people spending less time browsing the web looking for information

But that assumes that no SEO ever results in *less* relevant sites being ranked highly.

That strikes me as …wildly implausible

@freemo Did they ban twitter clients for hate speech? Because there's a lot…

It's not the clients/dev job to block stupid fucks' instances. It's the admin job. By the way, it's not even effective, it's either a FLOSS client and you can remove the block or a proprietary client and you trust it, and it's an open door for shitload of abuses (No way to make sure it won't block other instances on whatever arbitrary criteria they choose, for political reasons, money, or something else… ).

Maybe the authors just appreciate that changes in protocol should be given some time?

I despise the move-fast-and-break-things mentality. Changing quickly isn't a sign of being alive, it's a sign of bad project management.

Holy crap, google is apparently taking down all/most fediverse apps from google play on the grounds that that some servers in the fediverse engage in hate speech. At least three apps I know of anyway and I'd imagine the others will follow soon under the exact same reasoning.} Seems to be the case with Husky, Fedilab, and "subway" tooter.

this is a scary precedent if google play is going to ban any apps that can in any way be used to access content with hate speech. So what about a forum client, do they take that down just because there is a forum somewhere on the internet posting hate speech?

This is particularly worrisome because for most people Google Play is the only way they understand to install apps at all.

@Shamar @haitch @ekaitz_zarraga @alcinnz @abbienormal @alexbuzzbee I like this sentiment. You make it sound like this is a question of literacy. That we need to make it easier to both read and write (as well as cite and annotate) might be a good way to explain the problem in more social terms. It also can lead people to see that, even if it is sometimes hard work, computing can be a _pleasure_ just like good literature.
