Facebook now publicly praises privacy, but in court they present a different message saying “There is no invasion of privacy at all, because there is no privacy” & "You have to closely guard something to have a reasonable expectation of privacy." Um, no.

Сегодня задержали редактора дагестанской газеты «Черновик» Абдулмумина Гаджиева. Его обвинили в участии в «Исламском государстве» и финансировании его деятельности.
По таким статьям ему грозит срок до 20 лет; завтра его, вероятно, арестуют.

В постановлении о возбуждении дела нет абсолютно никакой конкретики о том, что сделал Гаджиев. Еще там упоминаются десять человек, из которых журналист знает только одного — он брал у него когда-то интервью.

ℹ️⚖️ I silenced

The reason is that there already a lot of alt-right people on there, cause there is no real moderation.

Why not suspend

Cause there are probably also many people who still think Purism is trustworthy. I don't want to cut off those people from So if you see a lost soul on please tell them about the real face of Purism/

Alt-right/nazi/fash scum can be be reported for suspension of course

Hey, how about instead of trying to jury-rig a reliable transport protocol on top of UDP to make HTTP faster, we just put less stuff in sites? If you make HTTP faster, sites will just get even more bloated.

@paulfree14 @axx @StuC @rysiek If there were legislation that Facebook must use open protocols such that users on Facebook could communicate with other systems not owned by Facebook and be fully interoperable then suddenly there's no reason for me to be on Facebook because I an still keep in contact with a few people on there without having a Facebook account. Siloing is the main reason that Facebook retains its power. Deteritorialize Facebook and see what happens when its in an open environment.

Ah but what about Gmail, you might say. Gmail isn't fully interoperable with other systems due to its increasingly selective blocking of any email server not run by another megacorp. They havn't completely destroyed email, but are moving towards siloing "confidential" emails.
