hot take: everyone feeling 3 millions for tumblr is ridiculously low is desensitized to the absolutely insane prices tech companies are valued to (and the absolutely insane prices of housing in CA). A company that produces nothing and has never made a penny should not even be 3M.

L'idée : remplacer un équipement électronique par un qui consomme moins c'est ecolo.
En vrai : il faudrait utiliser le nouveau matériel entre 12 et 88 ans pour que ça devienne rentable pour la planète.

The conversation with Todd from Purism was completely unproductive in my mind. In his view, there are only two possible options for moderation:

• Become a complete censorship machine with a slippery slope of who can or cannot speak

• Go by the jurisdiction users are in, hiding content illegal in certain jurisdictions and then removing content illegal in the poster's jurisdiction, for example a Chinese user's dissent against the Chinese gov't would be removed.

There are two problems that I brought up that, being that:

• Purism would be participating in the injustices of those countries

• Legal but harmful content would still be allowed, thus spreading harm.

I felt completely ignored when trying to get this across to him, especially that last bit. I also tried explaining to him that a slippery slope does not exist when you have set principles that you stick to within rules, but that completely flew over his head. It also ended with him basically telling me to solve the problem with a solution that works for every country everywhere and then get back to him. So, the block & boycott of Purism continues.

Woah this is so much bullshit. "Hey, we provide social tools, but we refuse any responsability for what will be done with it. Look, net neutrality!!!"
A social platform that **removes** the possibility to report a message is pure evil. Purism/Librem sounds like any random techdude "free speech extremist", and it’s incredibly shitty.

(you can see the whole FAQ here: librem.one/#faq )

Really, @purism? You copy a bunch of open-source apps and make it look like they are yours without any mention of the original apps? I think you should delete these apps immediately and publicly apologize. Or at least don't have the audacity to call yourself a "Social Purpose Corporation that does not exploit people and puts doing social good over maximizing profit ", because its obviously not true.

Vous vous souvenez que certains se sont énervés que Peertube n'aient pas développé de fonctionnalités de modération et de blocage dès la version 1.0 ?
Vous vous souvenez que Pixelfed a tout récemment annoncé travailler avec quelqu'un pour les guider dans cette démarche ?

N'y aurait-il pas un guide écrit qui cite les bonnes pratiques anti-harcèlement qu'on espère trouver dans des fonctionnalités communautaires ou sociales ?
