It's my turn to thank our for everything in !
I wasn't into social media when I joined the fediverse, but now I seriously feel most other platforms are... primal.

What I like particularly in QOTO:
- Freedom of speech
- Transparency in practice in decision making
- A Discourse forum that compliments mastodon the way orange compliments chocolate
- No fediblock pillowfights

Thank you @freemo !

Also, thank you awesome ! The welcoming atmosphere you create keeps the community healthy and cozy.

Hackers hit university online exam tool

In June 2020, the online exam service ProctorU suffered a data breach which was subsequently shared extensively across online hacking communities.

The breach contained 444k user records including names, email and physical addresses, phones numbers and passwords stored as bcrypt hashes.

The data was provided to HIBP by breachbase.pw

"These vultures rob everything, leave nothing but chains
Pick a point on the globe, yes, the picture's the same
There's a bank, there's a church, a myth and a hearse
A mall and a loan, a child dead at birth
There's a widow pig parrot, a rebel to tame
A white-hooded judge, a syringe and a vein
And the riot be the rhyme of the unheard"

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.
