People on the fediverse cheering on Google's censoring of a fediverse app. Couldn't make this shit up, if you wanted to.
My #1 wish for #Mastodon: when going to a profile that nobody on your instance is following (yet), load remote posts either automatically or via a button, instead of saying "no toots here" and that's that. Aside from being annoying for experienced users, I'm sure it must be one of the most confusing things for novice ones.
NoooOOOOOO!! NO FUCK OFF. GET THE FUCK OUT OF HERE
Poll: What amount of money per year would you consider a fair financial contribution for the hosting, administration, maintenance, and moderation of the fedi instance you're using? (Only micro-blogging, like e.g. Mastodon, Pleroma, GNUSocial.)
@paul When I was setting up my ssh-agent -> gpg-agent -> pcsc -> fidesmo card config I saw an article about signing a CSR with a PGP key to establish mutual TLS. It's not directly authenticating the HTTPS session connection with PGP, but could be used to initialise a machine on first use maybe?
@CSB https://mastodon.social/@Gargron/99662106175542726 eh. Not sure I buy that. Seems like a useful feature.
@raucao It made sense for other UAs with an agenda to get content locked into their particular walled-garden where they can pile on the analytics etc.
But I guess for Mozilla the only reason would be because they're blindly following what other UAs do? Pretty disappointing.
WTF, Mozilla? Why would you steal an advanced feature from power users like that? Especially one that is so widely used by the very people who actually care about the open Web? https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1244312
