Okay, you know what I still don't understand? Why so many people sign up on a new social network just to post someone else's porn. I understand sex workers (though they almost never act like that), but it's just random people dumping random porn. Not even trying to sell a service or advertise something. It seems so pointless.

pleroma and mastodon are in love. the fighting has ceased. they are lovers and will not fight with each other
Mastodon Makes Its Users Feel Happy. Here’s Why That’s A Bad Thing
FSF? Gnu-faggots, all things libre software can never be done, I respect them though. Mozilla? Meh, but it's a nice browser, but rather use Brave or something. Google? Fuck off! Ms? Fuck off! Apple? Fuck off! Amazon? Fuck off! Red Hat? Nice organisation, same it's IBM now.
anyone wanna start an instance
Also: cloud is nice, as long it's federated (like Nextcloud). E-mail should be PGP'ed. Encryption should have no backdoors. IoT? No thanks! Maybe if I can control it and the OS is privacy respcting. Ubuntu's telemenary and telementary as a whole? Not selling my data. No way, no thanks.
Netflix is shit, spotify is fine. Discord? Mehh because of privacy. Whatsapp? Dead to it, but it's the nesaserry evil.
Fucking hell I'm calling GNU/Linux linux from now on. Proprietary app? Yeah, so what. As long as it respects my privacy (like Duckduckgo) it's fine. DRM? Hell no! No steam anymore. Open source as much as possible? YES!
Wanted to clear you guys up what my current ideas are.
Installed Ubuntu yesterday evening. Why Ubuntu? Compitable, theming is nice and it has a nice GNOME variant.
Internet-linked microphones are privacy-flawed & can collect & use data w/out consent, says @msjpauly.

My bank wants my Phone number.
FUCKING HELL GO SUCK YO D.
Linux on the desktop: because it's easier to accept community-driven brokenness than profit-driven misbehavior
Why the hell does a new site want access to my camera and microphone?
Have they gone mad?
