Hey everyone! Just a friendly reminder that this instance is privately-operated and does have a code of conduct. It's a simple one but it does exist! social.privacytools.io/about/m

I highly recommend people check it out and use common sense and there won't be an issue. We are highly responsive to user reports made as well, and if you don't think we're handling something quick enough you can always ping me. Definitely want to discourage instance blocks to avoid fediverse fragmentation 😄

I should have a pinned message to new users.

Welcome to social.privacytools.io everyone! If you have any questions feel free to mention me in a post or DM and I'd be happy to answer them!

Also, adding a profile picture, bio, and an post will go a long way towards discovering new and interesting people in the fediverse 😄

It now comes with a neat criteria section, and a ton of other information. Major shout out to our team member daniel for being the driving force behind this assignment :)

Go take a look and enjoy!

Hello, good people of Mastodon!

I'm going to be migrating this instance to a new dedicated server tomorrow at 11 AM (Central Time) so uh, there's gonna be some downtime 😄

@kylejj thank you for your donation to PTIO btw, every time I visit our page this cracks me up lmao

Oh, now I gotta post to have people interact with me? These are the hidden costs they don't tell you about when you sign the Mastodon contract

well I made an account because it seems like an interesting concept (and also to shill my blog posts) so if anyone also has one feel free to subscribe 😜

It’s the yearly “talk loved ones out of buying surveillance technology” day in The U.S.

Be kind, but informative when someone mentions they want a home automation system. #google #amazon

Everyone please, please sign the save .ORG petition.

SaveDotOrg.org

.ORG seems to be the worst tld to sell. The people who want to use it are orgs that probably need it. ICANN has not given good reasons for why they are selling except for "we trust them" and pretty much just "we want the money."

m.slashdot.org/story/364024

Looking for volunteers who would be interested in translating privacytools.io to any variety of different languages (via Weblate). If you're interested shoot me a DM :)

There's a petition to Save the .org top level domain. Apparently, ICANN could still stop it from being sold.
savedotorg.org
I know, petitions rarely work, but I also know that _sometimes_ they do.
Please consider signing if you _run_ anything there, or if you _use_ or _care about_ anything that's on a .org domain. Also, boosting this to others who follow you, would be very much appreciated.

Don't let powerful people abuse copyright and trademark law to censor NGOs. EFF is proud to stand with @RSI, @creativecommons, and @publicknowledge to defend .ORG. eff.org/deeplinks/2019/11/nonp

A for-profit company just bought the .ORG registry, shortly after ICANN removed price caps on .org domains. So... that’s just fantastic.

If anyone owns a .org domain I’d probably extend that registration out to the max 10 years before those prices jump. theregister.co.uk/2019/11/20/o
