Thanks for sharing, Paul. The more, the better.

The above FediFlyer files are in Paul's repo here:
git.qoto.org/zleap/fediflyers

PRINT-READY JPGs are in the next toots (A4 size)

@dsfgs I get confused as the two are constantly interchanged and spell checks seems to suggest using an s is wrong

@zleap
It may be that the spellchecker needs to be configured, if you are using Linux and in GB. As an example look into hunspell, maybe. If you feel the need.

We're fairly certain GB and AU are same on this.

In reality we prefer the US spelling but its best to abide by conventions of your own country.

@dsfgs I am sure on an Episode of Inspector Morse. Morse points out that words are ize according to the Oxford English Dictionary

He asked lews to ask one of the other characters to write something with lots o words ending in ize

I will will check I have a dictionary application here

@zleap
Do you know an alternate website that can be used in this flyer?

Please DM or reply.

During the week we received a complaint that #fediverseDotParty is not secure, when accessed without typing 'https://'. If you know of other sites that help people find suitable #Pleroma instances, please tell us.

Thanks.

@dsfgs
what does an adversary learn from visiting over HTTP that they don't already learn from resolving the DNS?

@zleap @alex @aktivismoEstasMiaLuo @nestort @lain @humanetech

@dsfgs

As far as I can see both on Chrome and FF everything is secure. You'll always get redirected to https if typing a http address, or omitting that.

Ah you created a new toot thread. Adding other text for reference:

> During the week we received a complaint that #fediverseDotParty is not secure, when accessed without typing 'https://'. If you know of other sites that help people find suitable #Pleroma instances, please tell us.

@humanetech @zleap @nestort @lain @lightone @dsfgs Indeed, when I go to "fediverse.party/" with the EFF's HTTPS Everywhere plugin disabled, it redirects to https as it should. And it does the same when cURL is used (without -L site give "301 Moved Permanently"), so even if someone refuses redirects, there is no compromise.

@aktivismoEstasMiaLuo
Sorry we should have mentioned here also that this issue has been resolved by the developer/maintainer of the site and we are very thankful to them for fixing this.

Having said that, its healthy to use alternate websites occasionally so if you know a website(s) that can help people find good Pleroma instances, that don't use #CAGFAM, feel free to use it. The flyer's svg source file is available for this and other purposes.
