A few folks have asked how they can support the expenses of running the FLOSS.social #Mastodon instance. There are not a lot of expenses right now (€5/month) but if you're interested in chipping in, you can now become a FLOSS.social "Monthly Supporter"! Donations accepted via CommitChange, who run the free software Houdini Project to manage transactions. 🙂
Can someone help me understand this dichotomy? I'm truly stumped.

Protip for Chrome users: to improve your security when using Google Chrome, uninstall it and use a browser that’s not from a company which makes its money from spying on you 24/7
I reckon it's right about time to start boycotting Google. With the recent AMP and anti-URL crap, it's clear to see they are abusing their monopoly.
Let's stop using and recommending Chrome by default and set your default search engine to DuckDuckGo (or similar). Turn on your adblocker to starve them of income (Better Blocker is good as heck).
The best way to send a message to a corporation is to take their income from them, so do whatever you can to do that.

FLOSS.social was launched on 1 April 2018 as a Mastodon instance for people who care about, support, or build Free, Libre, and Open Source Software (FLOSS). Of course, discussions aren't limited to just FLOSS -- let's share our unique interests! English is preferred for maximum conversation opportunities within the FLOSS community, but it is not required. Respect is required, however: Users on FLOSS.social agree to abide by the Contributor Covenant Code of Conduct. This service was installed and is maintained in part by Masto.Host with equipment located at OVH. You can support this instance financially through the Monthly Supporter Program, processed through CommitChange using the free software Houdini Project.
