Hey folks, I know you love your proxy sites for Twitter, YouTube etc - but if you're sharing a link could you please use the authoritative source so I know what the hell I'm going to be clicking on and make my own informed decisions?

Also 90% of these third party sites are by default dark-themed accessibility nightmares and I can't read half the stuff on them anyway.

social media and mental health 

I want to be on just Mastodon, Reddit, Stack Exchange and GitHub only. I am done with Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn. LinkedIn is the hardest to break away from I think.

kiwifarms, long 

The guy behind KF wrote this long whining screed in the wake of Dreamhost opting to no longer take money from him in exchange for being his domain registrar and DNS provider.

I won't bother linking it. In the screed his complains that he's down to Cloudflare or running every part of the infrastructure from crossconnect to server to IP allocation to domain registration himself, because at every step of the process to get networked and online someone has "censored" (editorial comment: by censored he means "exercised their right to not do business with him") him.

VPS providers won't do business with him, a datacenter yanked his servers and told him to piss off, several orgs will not XC with anyone that carries him, no ISP will carry him so he's had to start his own, and even if he funds and runs everything required to be his own ISP, host, registrar, and provider he then has nothing protecting him from having his dick DDoSed off which is apparently a constant and on-going thing; imagine that.

It's really one of the biggest "No, it's everyone else who is wrong" cases of cognitive dissonance I've ever seen.

Oh, and also: Good.
