More on this line of thought to come.

#LPT: When evacuating an airplane, leave your bags, luggage behind. It is unbelievable this has to be explicitly stated. Your selfishness will kill people. It just happened in Russia. 40+ pax died but a lot of those that made it out had their luggage with them. Unbelievable.

Well, I fixed the Addon-Problem with the
hotfix-update-xpi-intermediate%40mozilla.com-1.0.2-signed.xpi

A short while ago we recovered from some excessive queuing related to some of the Mastodon relays added several months back.

This resulted in some delays on the "Home" and/or "Federated" timelines until the queues were cleared. Everything seems back to normal now.

Thanks to @rgggn for your report!

I guess we shouldn't really be surprised, since their whole concept is simply taking others' work, repackaging, and reselling it.

ICYMI: Through design antipatterns asked new users to hand over email passwords. 1,500,000 people did. Then they mapped each user's list of email contacts to build a profiles of connections.

OK, now this is seriously interesting: #Purism's fork of the #Mastodon server (known as #Smilodon) has two particular changes that caught my eye.

First, they disabled the public timelines, as well as private posts: source.puri.sm/liberty/smilodo

Second, they disabled reports? source.puri.sm/liberty/smilodo
