Portland, OR. Federal violence. 

Federal officers who do not have badges or answer to local authorities and state officials have been found in Portland Oregon, pulling protesters into unmarked vans.

Today the Acting Homeland Security Secretary released an extremely scary letter condemning protesters as lawless anarchists destroying the city.

I am fucking terrified.

Haha, :birdsite: now prohibits posting tweets containing a hashsum (tested with sha256) as a mitigation against yesterday's Bitcoin scam.

They're really tackling the source of the problem, without any collateral damage. :thisisfine:

PeerTube moderation / white supremacism mention 

A video maker from YouTube have opened his own instance.

videos . lukesmith . xyz

He have announced the creation of this instance because "so many of [his] favorites channels now have [been banned]" while showing one banned for hate speech.
After a quick search this channel was the one of the "American Renaissance" magazine, a white supremacist online publication.

While his YouTube channel seems to host mostly tech/linux related content he seems to use a lot of alt-right's illustrations on the thumbnails. I haven't watched any others videos than the one where he's talking about PeerTube so I don't know about the content.

He also said that he have put a lot of his YouTube videos in "private" recently to avoid been banned.

He said in this video that he will post PeerTube's exclusive videos that he can't post on YouTube because they would be banned.

He also said that he wants to fully use federation to not be isolated on his instance, I suggest that we don't allow him that !

Snap, Flatpak, AppImage, etc - are all attempts to make Linux more palatable to either proprietary software, or to software with reckless runaway complexity. Personally, I want neither, and will give no quarter to "solutions" for their "problems".

‪I don’t remember any high profile open letters about “cancel culture” when people were being quietly ostracised for coming out as trans. But a rich white woman faces a few consequences after coming out as a bigot, and suddenly “our cultural institutions are facing a moment of trial” and “this stifling atmosphere will ultimately harm the most vital causes of our time.”

"well-meaning" transphobia 

Seeing a cis woman actress saying how she's excited to play a trans man role because "that’s a woman, that’s a female story – it changes to a man, but I want to understand the why and how of that. I want to get into it." it's infuriating.
leaving aside the issues of actual representation of trans actors, it's just sad to see "allies" still missing the point so hard. It reminds me of Ptolemaic astronomers, all caught up in explaining the motion of planet with increasingly complex theories because they cannot let go of their framework (where trans people are their AGAB); while with a simple change of perspective, (that we trans people have been telling them forever), the solution becomes apparent: a trans man wants to live as a man, maybe take hormones to have secondary sex characteristic of a man, maybe get a phallo *because* he is a man. So *simple*.

instance block recommendation 

boseburo.ddns.net is a Pleroma instance that "stands for Freedom of Speech" (sic) and "against politically correctness and censorship", along with a small pile of dogwhistles rejecting accountability ("against character assassination" etc.). admin has thrown xenophobia at me for criticising German trans laws (above).

these: maskenpflicht = tempolimit. eine einfach umzusetzende vorsichtsmaßnahme von allen zum schutz von allen, um das letztlich unkontrollierbare risiko zu veringern dass manche schwer verletzt oder getötet werden könnten.
wie das mit dem tempolimit klappt wissen wir ja.
