PSA: Free Speech doesn't mean everyone has to give you a platform. Moderating content isn't #censorship. The current discussion around #FDroid and gab has nothing to do with free speech at all.

If you want to distribute an app that no one else wants to host make your own repo.
If you have an opinion that isn't welcome anywhere else make your own blog.


 
Our users rely on bridges if their ISPs or governments block access to the Tor network. The difficulty lies in handing out bridges to censored users but not to censors. We tackle this problem with the tool BridgeDB.

When you find yourself aligned with the Nazis ideologically, it's time to revaluate your position: #censorship

"The #Nazi Propaganda Ministry took control of all forms of communication in Germany: newspapers, magazines, books, public meetings, and rallies, art, music, movies, and radio. Viewpoints in any way threatening to Nazi beliefs or to the regime were censored or eliminated from all media"

@Gargron And I'm sure #Valve will grab a bag of pampers and quickly rush to the offended person to tend to their feelings: #Censorship first, ask questions later. This is once more why I'm glad #Purism runs their #Mastodon instance the way they do.


 
@Gargron At least that would make more sense compared to a certain instance that's banned (not even media blocked) on mastodon.social, for the sole reason that it allows #artists to post "immoral artwork". Won't mention its name but I think everyone knows which that is.

That's also a good example as to why I strongly support Librem's no moderation approach: These days everything goes too far! What starts as justified #censorship for select cases almost always turns into random mass censoring.


 
Even if you don't like #JulianAssange, or even if you think this is Trump 4D chess and Julian is our/his guy, the arrest situation and everything since should be chilling af. No matter how you cut it, this is an attack on truth and freedom of expression. #journalism #censorship

@Gargron @a Good. Even if there was, it should NEVER be implemented. I would literally fork the project if the original code was ever infected with such a thing as automated #censorship filters.


 
@Gargron @Mastodon I wasn't sure where else to ask so I figured here is okay. Is it normal that the baraag.net instance is inaccessible from mastodon.social? I tried to follow someone there but nothing shows up! I'm not seeing it on https://github.com/Gargron/mastodon.social-misc so I assume it's not blocked on purpose.

It's a French group for artists so I see no obvious reason. If #censorship of #artwork has anything to do with it, I'd imagine it would just be media blocked but I can still follow users like on Pawoo.

«La directive sur le copyright voté par la commision JURI est renvoyé au parlement»
https://iloth.net/2018/07/la-directive-sur-le-copyright-vote-par-la-commision-juri-est-renvoye-au-parlement/

Une bataille a été gagnée, mais la directive sur le Copyright sera soumise à l’ensemble du Parlement Européen début Septembre.

Il faut continuer à contacter les Eurodéputé.es pour discuter et informer des conséquences de mise en place un tel filtrage automatisé et éviter de perdre un Internet Libre, tel qu’on le connaît.

#Google is still working on dragonfly; today the intercept published the transcript of what Ben Gomes said internally in July because it contradicts what he said to a BBC reporter last month: “Right now, all we’ve done is some exploration,” Gomes told the reporter, “but since we don’t have any plans to launch something, there’s nothing much I can say about it.”

Idea for a web browser extension:

Detecting the error codes of centralized platforms upload filters ("f#$@%! #copywrong lobbies don't let you/us put this file online") and immediately re-uploading the same file to archive.org with tag '#censorship'

I feel like there needs to be a concerted push to move all internet infrastructure into the control of the hands of the United Nations — currently the US controls too much.

Organisations such as IANA and ICANN are based in the US, which means they could see pressure to force domain registrars to comply with US laws. This is greatly worrying.

I don't have the political chops to push for this, but I'd happily sign any campaign.

Before saying "#DNS #censorship? Use GAFA Public DNS 8.8.8.8!" Remember that 8.8.8.8 is not authentified and often hijacked, as shown by this survey
