"Big Tech has also grown bigger than ever. Through rigging the game by leveraging their ecosystems to lock users in..."

While also making all their services *not* work with protocols like #CalDAV, #CardDAV, #WebDAV at all, and also locking #IMAP behind a paywall...

I do use Protonmail and they deserve some respect for making privacy easy for the everyday user, but still...

I should start writing down the things I change on my system so I don't have to research what steps are required to reproduce what I did.

Also a little notice, if it was not clear already; we do not support the actions of #Russia in any way and stand with the people of #Ukraine

Other "big tech" platforms like Twitter, Facebook and YouTube have seen a big increase in the amount of 'fake-news' accounts to spread false info about the war.

On mstdn.social we now have "closed" public signups and working with an invite link to 1. prevent the massive flow of bot signups. 2. keep a closer eye on all new accounts (locally) in the community to have a better impact on the battle against false information.

For the people of Ukraine on #Mastodon; here is more info on how posts are visible to the world: docs.joinmastodon.org/user/pos

When websites load in my browser, only I should decide how and under what circumstances the website runs on my computer. You can not force me to run certain scripts you uploaded to my computer if I do not want to.
