ICE, ways to resist

the fediverse is unsafe
if you're an instance admin and are conscious of the flaws in the software you use that are available for malicious actors to exploit, you have a responsibility to (in descending order):
a) fix it yourself if you know how, and share your work with other admins
b) if you dont know how to make the changes, advocate to the writer of your software to implement these changes, and dont take no for an answer
c) cease use of your software and seek an alternative.
Tim Cook: “If we accept as normal and unavoidable that everything in our lives can be aggregated, sold, or even leaked in the event of a hack, then we lose so much more than data. We lose the freedom to be human.”
the fediverse is unsafe
every single argument ive heard against whitelisting today could easily have been said by any so-called "free speech advocate."
servers and users should NOT be guaranteed a universal platform by default, and guaranteeing any schmuck with a server and too much free time access to your users is actively malicious and should be fought against
the fediverse is unsafe
admins: can you assure your users that your server isnt silently federated with FBI or other malicious entities?
can you assure them that CP isnt going to suddenly appear on their federated timeline because your server blindly federated with a server that allows it?
can you assure your users that harassment forums like kiwifarms cant see their posts?
if not, you /need/ to switch to a whitelist, or actively work to give users the same privacy options server owners do.
re: psa for nazi harassment
every argument sent to me disagreeing with this has largely boiled down to "its inconvenient for admins, and it goes against the ideals of the fediverse"
1. if you're an instance admin because its convenient, youre not a good admin. administration of a community is a heavy responsibility.
2. fuck the "ideals" of the fediverse. if these so-called ideals do not include comprehensive safety measures for every well-meaning user then theyre not worth pursuing
re: hey admins (made boostable)
@luminol when i was a mod on awoo space this is literally how it worked
afaik it still is
psa for nazi harassment
users, if you notice nazi and fash urls on fedi, this is your admin's responsibility.
if you are seeing fash urls on any of your timelines, your admin has elected to not use a whitelist that would prevent any and all fascist harassment in all of your fedi spheres.
there is literally a feature that would eliminate any and all fascist harassment with minimal repercussions to your normal fediverse experience and no one is using it, but instead we're playing whack a mole
@brainblasted I'm wondering why people *aren't* yelling, yes.
Librem Social's userbase is the enemy within the gates, meanwhile everyone's salting their own fields at the mere idea of another one.
Suppose Fedilab's French author does cave in to harassment from American armchair politicians and we get the symbolic gesture they want. Then what? You think a grifter with a million dollars won't immediately buy up 50 DNS aliases to circumvent it?
you know, all these issues with nazi urls would be rendered /entirely useless/ if you shift to a whitelist mode of server blocks.
im absolutely baffled as to why every admin on fedi deliberately chooses to constantly have to be on high alert for nazi urls as opposed to instantly blocking them all permanently.
why would you spend so much effort finding bad urls when you could be spending your time adding good ones to a list instead, and NEVER have to deal with nazi urls again
