the main problem with tumblr and twitter was and is the nazis and the lack of any communal means to fight nazis

this problem is largely addressed with the fediverse. we have tools to fight nazis, we have admins who are invested in the communities and not trying to profit off the users

i would never consider going back to those sites because suddenly i also have to address my own everyday bigotry, be considerate of others, actually learn something i don't already think i know, etc.

i did Adrienes day 13 today and biked to work. It was cold today so I used my reusable handkerchief because the cold makes my eyes tear..

The fediverse is a public forum.

Your posts are only as secure as the admins of every instance that your home server federates with, in terms of private and followers-only messages.

If you're going to talk about sensitive information, keep it to Signal or other secure 1-on-1 channels.

Assume that everything you post to the fediverse, is being scooped up by multiple gov agencies around the world.

The Milan scrape was only notable because they made their findings public.

If a university scraping feeds did it, it's safe to assume other, bigger organizations have been doing it for much longer.

someone out there on etsy makes spiked covers for wheelchair push bars and honestly 💯 don't touch a person's wheelchair! ever! only if they ask you pointedly and directly! its part of their person and their agency! until then i'm in love with the concept.
