  2. @purplehippo I honestly pay that stuff no mind these days.  Even when I redo postActiv entirely for the polygot / multi-protocol project, I am unlikely to support ActivityPub.  Out of all protocols possible, it is not even a poor protocol, it is the worst.  And I make such decisions based upon the viability of the protocol, not on its popularity.

    • @purplehippo This isn't even an Android thing.  Twitter's API relied on the client to follow a "display this post/profile" flag in whether or not to show the tweets.  Which is the same advisory privacy ActivityPub uses.  And they're both equally as effective.

      The answer to that has been just to add any node that doesn't follow the advisories to their blocklist, rather than improving the protocol, which is unsurprising.

      • @purplehippo With moderates (as opposed to extremists), you have to actually be able to make and defend a line of argumentation.  With extremists, you only have to manipulate them into believing the One Truth and the rest falls into place.

        The powers that be at various governments and corporation understand this well, and you better believe that things like anti-vaxxers, anti-fa, etc, are propped up by governments and corps who want wedge issues.  A lot of people are willfully ignorant of that fact, because they don't want to feel manipulated.

        • "Twitter disclosed on its Help Center page today that some Android users had their private tweets revealed for years due to a security flaw."


          This is exactly the kind of security you get out of advisory privacy.  But people keep calling it privacy, and expecting privacy out of it.

          • Many vaccinations are of poor quality, or executed poorly, but you can't criticise that anymore.

            Lets nevermind the fact that I'd not be a papayaing wreck of all these problems if not for that.

            • Lotta this in the logs, looks like prosody is crashing client connections because it misforms stanzas...

              Unhandled c2s_destroyed stream element or stanza: c; xmlns=http://jabber.org/protocol/caps: <c ver='Okcix6H7N4jHBfznbcfRJeVOXEI=' ext='' hash='sha-1' node='http://jitsi.org' xmlns='http://jabber.org/protocol/caps'/>

              ... and since ironically that's the one for a disconnected client, that's why things like jitsi and conversations are having trouble staying connected.

              There'll probably be downtime on the weekend while I try to sort that out.

            • @gardenofforkingpaths So many people use Atom/RSS when clearly no one uses it, such foolish behaviour…
              "Ugh, why won't everyone get the gist that no one uses Atom/RSS anymore and stop requesting support for it?"

                        • So, I have a cousin who was present for the Las Vegas country festival shooting. She was with a friend who was in the Army, and they got out OK, but still - ever decreasing degrees of separation. And now, for the other side: this man worked at my dad's work until Tuesday. https://www.latimes.com/local/lanow/la-me-citrus-college-lockdown-incident-20190115-story.html I wonder what the national average "distance from victim/perpetrator" is these days?

                              • @purplehippo He's a guy who rides on name recognition these days, but most video gamers don't know who the Fluffle Puff he is.

                                He's also another one of these guys where they attribute the success of a team (Magic wasn't just his) to one guy ... though at least in Magic's case unlike many others, it can at least be said he was the "main" guy.
