If they wanted to join this Mastodon instance, I'd be happy to approve their accounts - all they'd have to write in response to "why do you want an account on our server?" is "We're keen to walk the talk and stop being hypocrites". If they write that, they're in.
@selea just another reason I'm pleased I didn't adopt their service (and set up my own mail service, which, frankly, is superb).
@selea yes, I've found it librating, and an opportunity to be generous to my friends. I host email for myself and many others. 3 MailCow instances, all about 2-3 years old. They are remarkable and inspiring technology, created by impressive and generous folks.
Hmm opposite to my experience I have had e-mails where a long signature includes about e-mail not being secure.
Unless we get GnuPG or similar as part of basic IT training then people will think opposite extremes.
If banks signed their e-mail it would be much better and probably easier to spot scams
@zleap @foxmask @selea banks are generally run by people who don't get tech. My bank (in NZ) has a reasonably informed CTO (with whom I spoke) but he essentially said that proper security protocols are beyond them. He assured me they'd have a 'secure upload' facility 2 years ago. It's not there yet. The bank still routinely instructs people to sign documents (e.g. account signing authorities) on paper, scan, and email them as unencrypted attachments. They're about 20 years behind.
