But, at least people are free to move to other instances and take their toots with them (if they backed them up regularly).
That's the power of decentralization! =) One instance can censor, but it cannot censor every other instance.
@h4890 Yes. I knew what I am doing. But they violated their COC anyway. On this particular instance I posted just one image that wasn't breaking anything at all. but on 3 other instances they straight out deleted my toots without chance to backup violating their COC. Sad, people's word is worthless these days
BTW found mastodon.host have account there and they haven't censored me and already posted a lot of "dangerous harmful misinformation" 😂 and it supports full-text toot search 😎
@akeno Ah! So there is hope! =) It is sad but true... socialism is taking over the open source movement.
There are just a few hardcore communities that ignore politics and focus on technology, but those projects are seen as increasingly unpopular (openbsd for instance).
@phicyclist @h4890 Yea. I personally don't use SIM deleted signal. I have SIM's I bought via ebay anonymously though And you can top up with crypto anonymously too. 🙂 But because of plandemic I probably never use them again. not that I need to.
I use https://getsession.org/ --hope they enable video calls soon. matrix and jitsi 🙂
But it is more for my significant other. She bought an iphone against my advice. It was quite fun, because after she bought it, she thought her old android was better. I really had to control myself not to tell her "I told you so". ;)
Oh well, maybe I can persuade her in a few years when the current one breaks down.
My next phone purchase will most likely be a Nokia feature phone, that cannot run any advanced software or services.
That way, whenever I try to get service and people say "oh, but just download a spyware app" I can tell them that my phone does not support apps, but they are more than welcome to buy me a new phone if they want me as a customer. ;)
I am not much fancy of servers it takes maintenance I am more p2p type. which would be unusable with masto 😂
The think is if we had an anarchy somewhere normal people could go there now and survive. All these crazy people are free to kill themselves with their fear and live like clowns but now we are at their mercy. There is nowhere to go.
I think we need miracle.
The longer I stay in my summer house, the stronger my feeling to move here permanently.
But modern comfort requires one to be somewhat part of the system. I'm therefore thinking constantly, what convenience and services would I be willing to sacrifice to cut myself loose from this sick society?
But then I think about my significant other and future children, and then things really
So at the moment, the best solution I have found is to play the legal game and run my own company instead of being employed to minimize taxes, opt for home schooling, and spend weekends and summers in my country side house.
I think that combo is possible to combine with family life.
I never used it because they insisted on phone nr, but I thought signal was seen as one of the good guys.
As for secure communication, I use protonmail to protonmail email, I use 7z to encrypt sensitive information and that's about it.
Tried hard to make my near and dear use either Tox or Jami.net but they refused because neither have cat pictures. Sigh.
Yes the very reliance on phone # makes is pretty much useless for privacy. It's extortion at least.
As for protonmail they have ties to Tesonet data minin corp. I have the account but I use mostly tutanota.
Yes, Jitsi works great for me. I even managed to get some regular business people use it.
Can't say anything about Jitsi security though, so I only use it as a replacement for all the regular video chat apps since it is open source.
Should it happen to be more secure, that's an added bonus.
Liberdon is a Mastodon instance for libertarians, ancaps, anarchists, voluntaryists, agorists, etc to sound off without fear of reprisal from jack or zuck. It was created in the wake of the Great Twitter Cullings of 2018, when a number of prominent libertarian accounts were suspended or banned.
