"If it ain’t federated, don’t fix it"

- Fediverse proverbs



So given that "health pass" digital control experiment seems to be de-facto going ahead in many places, I guess we are ultimately going to find out which camp in the preprint publishers knows what they are taking about.
My feeling:

Specifically within the context of . Let is be said:
While it's quite evident that there exists "pro-vax" industry, "pro-vax" experts, "pro-vax" specialists, "pro-vax", government propaganda campaign, the much referred to counterpart is really not so clear at all.
What I see is valid concern.

@aral It is extraordinary to be considered abnormal when you don't have and don't want a Google account.
And to think that at one time the moron who created a Google account for my wife and in-laws was me. Trying to dissuade them from using it today is an uphill battle.

The above should be interpreted as an RFC. Also, I'd love to know what solutions you find to weaning off the big tech platforms. There's also and probably many other cross posters. I haven't really looked into it.
Question: Should this go on forever, or at what point will one stop bridging accounts and creating content that supports big tech, What says you, @aral ?

For now, I am not following any more accounts that RT off-verse content, as I consider it bordering on spam.

In the meantime, do feel free to keep cross-posting from your mastodon account outwards, which at this point, IMHO, is the only feature that @crossposter should support.

Shout out to people who make use of @crossposter
to propel your off-verse content into the fediverse: Please reconsider!

At the very least, please consider NOT forwarding retweets.

Ask yourself, do you really want to frustrate your fediverse users with content that contains usernames that don't exist, that is out of context without the thread that can only be opened by leaving the fediverse.

Nothing against @renatolond who I imagine is well meaning and has put a lot of work in. 💗

Note to Self. UK govt in the media today 7 Sep as they now begin the next phase in the pandemic story? This being the touchy subject of how to pass the bill on to the public.

Hey @yogthos

Would like to know any thoughts you might have about this piece:

Grabbing my attention a little is,

".. possible that there was intentional release. There are a number of possibilities [ ..SNIP.. ] The most obvious is that someone was out to frame the Chinese."


"This is effectively a bioweapons arms race under the guise of protecting the public. Make no mistake: This was sparked and fueled by the US government."

How can it be that this was EVER a question?

The natural immune protection that develops after a SARS-CoV-2 infection offers considerably more of a shield against the Delta variant of the pandemic coronavirus than two doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine, according to a large Israeli study....

It's often assumed that because Twitter has a larger userbase than the Fediverse, that accounts would automatically get more followers there.

However, many accounts (especially FOSS projects) have more followers here on the Fediverse.

Some examples (as of 26th July 2021):

@fdroidorg has 10.8k vs 7.33k on Twitter

@k9mail has 1.57k vs 680 on Twitter

@Minetest has 1.39k vs 785 on Twitter

If you know any Libre projects that are yet to join the Fedi, please ask them to give it a go!
