Via Motherboard:

"Cloudflare has confirmed to Motherboard that the company terminated service to Switter because of FOSTA, but also said it's 'a very bad law.'"

#FOSTA #switter

> Switter moved to a new content delivery network (CDN), which Assembly Four declined to name for security reasons.

Security though obscurity is not security at all

Regarding our recent outage. You can find an official statement below. The last documented time Cloudflare terminated services was when they terminated the account of a white supremacist website last year. We are waiting on answers.

Here's another reason to pick #opensoure products: WD #MyCloud devices were 'protected' by the password "abc12345cba". Better take them offline right now!

Be smart, run a #private cloud solution that has undergone some #public scrutiny. #powerofcommunity

I'm tired of the "I don't have to learn to use complicated stuff" bullshit.

When you want to drive a car, you need to get a license. And the driver license costs more than it probably should cost. But you pay for it anyways and do your courses. And you don't complain.

Then you want to use your fancy phone or computer, but you complain when you can't do something because you don't understand it, because you don't want to learn it. Not even if you could learn it for free!

Russian Court Bans Telegram App for refusing to hand over encryption keys.

Commendable they refuse to hand over keys but now no more Telegram in Russia... The issue with #centralization made clear again. Better #federate with #matrix #XMPP
