Pinned toot

Twitter, Facebook and other social media platforms block accounts without providing any reasons on a regular basis. Sometimes the accounts are gone entirely, sometimes they get shadow bans (restricted visibility) or geoblocks.

I've collected a list of blocks of (mostly eco or leftwing activist) accounts and will post them in this thread. The sources will be in German or English, feel free to ask for translation.

I'm glad for any additions! [1/12]

Pinned toot

I wrote a script to find out from which instances the accounts I'm following are and of which platform types these instances are. It uses the list you can export from the Mastodon settings. Platform detection is ugly and probably buggy but I don't know how to do better, if you have any tipps let me know. Also, there are way more platforms I should include!

I used to keep a list of accounts and more that were (shadow)banned on Twitter & co on my old account: social.tchncs.de/@tofuwabohu/1

Instead of reposting all these on this account, I'll maintain that list at a new place:
shadowban.tofuwabo.hu/

I think that's easier to point to than a Masto thread that probably didn't federate properly.

Hit me up if you have additions!

So far it has RSS, tags will follow and probably a nice design. Also I'll start to add screenshots.

#CSMblock

Hi, I'm going to move to @tofuwabohu. I you are on Mastodon and everything works out as intended, you don't have to do anything, followers on other platforms, please follow me there if you want to. This account is going to be inactive.

Moin, ich ziehe zu @tofuwabohu um. Wenn ihr auf Mastodon seid sollte das Umfolgen automatisch funktionieren, von anderen Plattformen folgt mir bitte auf dem neuen Account wenn ihr mögt. Dieser Account wird inaktiv.

@tofuwabohu This takes a bit longer than expected, but it'll probably work eventually. ☕

fuck CloudFlare posting because it has been too long 

It is really annoying when instances use the default CloudFlare config or whatever weird pseudo-"CDN" service and it just blocks Tor connections or requires a Google captcha which is honestly worse since that can deanonymize people using Tor unsafely. I wish more admins kept this in mind or maybe even considered not using CloudFlare or a similar service and giving them tons of data about who connects to your site and what they do for free *audible gasp from the sysadmin audience*.

I can't just open someone's bio or look at their media on their instance directly anymore.

also a note for #MastoDev :
give admins the option to use a CDN for specifically non-privately posted media/posts so that instances can scale a bit more without immediately compromising user privacy with a third-party host that vacuums up and sells their metadata to data vendors or whatever other sketchy shit. In this scenario at the very least the only trusted parties should be the instances and the relevant users and not some net infrastructure megacorporation thanks.

anyways #FuckCloudFlare

vim, how to not close it 

Added a quicksave function to my vimrc. Forgot in which file I was and to test if my new save function worked, I added a new line, containing nothing but 'x', saved and closed it and opened it again, but vim exited every time I tried to open it. Forgot that the x gets interpreted and as x is a closing command, the last thing in my vimrc was to close vim. Clever me, couldn't figure out how not to close vim.

It's okay, nobody else knows what they are doing either :)

Warum hat es 1,5 Jahre gedauert bis ich davon erfahren habe, dass es diese Demo gab. Großartig.

Setting up a simple Windows VM for build tests only gets worse. Now I had to disconnect the network in order to create one without signing in with a Microsoft account. Ridiculous.

In the media yesterday, Shell denied any responsibility in the killing of the #Ogoni9. For people who want to know the whole story, we share some sources! #ShellGuilty

Twitter-thread!

Was about to post a complaint on why keyboards have the default key print at the top and the shifted one at the bottom of a corner because I find that counter intuitive to the upwards pointing shift symbol and old typewriters, it's the other way round. Then I realized it's not common and just on my keyboard (that I'm using since 2 years or so) and now I'm annoyed.

Parteitag ist abgesagt, Demo wird evtl. in anderer Form stattfinden.

Zuletzt gab es im #Danni mehrere Falschmeldungen der Cops, die Gewalt und Menschenverachtung vertuschen sollten. Solche Falschmeldungen sind nichts Neues. Wir haben darüber geschrieben:

Strange beauty from environmental devastation. A manganese mine in Gabon. Each waste pile on this endless pimpled landscape is the size of a large Egyptian pyramid, some with trees now growing on them. Let's hope nature reclaims this area as the waste pile forest expands.

++Polizei verursacht schweren Unfall im Danni++

Die Polizei hat heute in 10-15m Entfernung von einem Tripod ein Seil durchschnitten. Dabei hat sie nicht interessiert, dass das Seil zum Tripod abgespannt war und eine Person im Tripod am Seil hing. Die Person stürzte zu Boden.
