It's good to see that fediverse administrators care so deeply about the privacy of their users. However I'm not convinced that the long term solution can be a robots.txt (or "advisory") style equivalent approach. Expressing desire and intent is useful, but insufficient.
Scrapers/feed consumers are really easy to write. When indexing is outlawed, only outlaws will do indexing, and they will, because it's easy to do.
@aktivismoEstasMiaLuo This is part of a longer discussion that would be better suited to the github, but the short story is that the official instances won't allow bigoted trolls like a lot of other reddit alternatives that market themselves as such.
Lemmy already has a built-in slur filter, but I know I won't be able to stop racist / sexist trolls from starting their own instances, unfortunately.
Lemmy now has a Code of Conduct!
Lemmy Release v0.6.0 - Avatars, email notifications, and a lot more.
v0.6.0 is here, and we've closed 41 issues! This is the biggest release by far:
Another major announcement is that Lemmy now has another lead developer besides me, @felix Theyve created a better documentation system, implemented RSS feeds, simplified docker and project configs, upgraded actix, working on federation, a whole lot more.
Mozilla just laid off 70 fantastic people. If you can help them - open positions, offering helpful conversations and references, anything else - please say so.
Use #MozillaLifeboat as an umbrella tag for easy finding. (It's already flowing on the birdsite.)
If you've been affected, I'm happy to chat directly. Also have some open positions (see rest of this thread). But doesn't have to be today - take time to recover if you can.
Most of all: thank you folks for making the web better.
New release of Awesome #Emoji Picker! 🎉
v1.2 now supports:
* the system's dark mode
* searching for emojis in the address bar (optional)
I need some industrial-grade escapism right now, so this thread is going to be me live-tooting my adventures in #NetHack4 game that I just started. Won't be long—I never got past the Gnomish Mines, I think.
If you have a "recent-ish browser", you can watch me at https://ascension.run/hterm/ (press "c" to connect, "w" to list games, then choose the one Minoru is playing).
You can also ssh firstname.lastname@example.org and do the same c-w-choose Minoru thing there.
