thoughts of a techbro  

“Hmmm, this software goes out of its way to omit a feature that would be rather easy to provide. It must be because the implementor doesn't know how to do it. I should work around them and assume there's no reason behind that seemingly deliberate choice.”

i'm going to throw a :brick:​ at all those assholes making fediverse scrapers

@f0x@social.pixie.town just the fact that they're saying "meaningful user-agent header" instead of just saying what user agent they send exactly is already very sketchy to me tbh

BREAKING: Mastodon CEO Eugen "Gargron" Rochko announces that Mastodon will soon support ActivityPub, enabling integration with the wider fediverse for the first time.

i remember seeing a post of someone drafting a generic terms of service for mastodon instance, GDPR compatible/related, but totally lost it. Any ideas? :boosts_ok_gay:

In Internet slang, "lurking" means being present (e.g. on a mailing list, forum or chat) without participating yourself.

I'm curious: does "lurking" sound like something shady to you, or is it neutral?

I ask because the Dutch word 'lurking' means something different, and as such I always regarded it mostly-neutral - but the English dictionary definitions are all "shady", so I wonder what this is like for non-Dutchies.

Boosts OK
