Persona 5 and it's story about a group of friends joining together to bring down corrupt adults in order to free others. It was a perfect metaphor for the fight against #SurveillanceCapitalism for me, and is why my avatar is their logo. Corny, but I don't care.
@Torie If you're in the columnized web UI and left click on a hashtag, it opens in a column. That's the web UI version. When you instead open the hashtag link in a new tab, it opens a separate page, possibly on a different server. That's the public hashtag page.
I'm not sure if I've ever done this in my life...
1. 🌐 Download a web browser
2. 🔍 Check every setting
3. ✔️ Change nothing, except...
First, guess which browser?
I only changed *one* thing by enabling the Better filter with this terminal command:
gsettings set org.gnome.Epiphany adblock-filters "['https://better.fyi/blockerList.txt']"

I wish that images were scaled down from remote resources on the #fediverse. Sending the whole actual image isn't friendly on clients. Being able to report a max size or max dimension for a resource / type could be cool.

New here? Remember that Twitter is optimized to make you into passive consumers, by en(r/g)aging you with content that you don't choose yourself.
Here, that doesn't happen. But it also means you're responsible to find people to follow.
It will take some work.
If you're willing to put that in, you'll find a wide variety of friendly people that will be happy to have meaningful conversions and laugh and cry together with you.
Start by searching and looking at who other people follow.
RT @LeeCamp: Capitalism keeps poor people busy by making us struggle to meet our basic needs.

Just finished installing my very own Gitea (https://gitea.io/). Now to move stuff over to it
The Mozilla Foundation has a podcast called IRL. In a recent episode they talked about passwords and basically ended the episode advocating the use of proprietary password managers, specifically LastPass and OnePass.
LastPass has had number of security breaches over the years. Mozilla is a non-profit that creates Free Software, and even has a password manager built into Firefox that is FLOSS, and even self-hostable. Why are they advocating people use inferior stuff to their own?
microsoft made windows 10, split it into two versions -- a watered down one called home and a regular one called pro -- and when you buy a $2000 laptop it comes with w10 home so you have to fucking pay $100 for access to bitlocker and group policy editor like some kind of EA microtransaction bullshit except it's not a video game it's your fucking operating system and it costs ONE HUNDRED DOLLARS
microsoft had to put in extra work to create the limited home version. when you buy windows you are financing a company that spent time and effort to actively fuck you and every other user over
