FYI PayPal stopped processing in-country money transfers in Russia. This is due to protectionistic law that went in effect and it does not affect international transfers. You can still donate to ~~The Church of St. Deering~~ me using paypal.me/foxcpp

So in case GitHub does a flop again, one could grab the source code of maddy, for example, from git.hexanet.dev/foxcpp/maddy. I should link it somewhere...

When email service providers start having large volumes of spam moving through their services, they apologise and fix the problem urgently. If they don't, they get blackholed and can't send email anymore.

When a centralized platform with an effective monopoly does it, they tell FOSS maintainers its their job to keep spam off of the platform

git.hexanet.dev now has "Sign-In with GitHub" button. Compromise to live with GitHub's network effect.

How's conventional spam filtering (RBLs, DCCs, greylisting, all that stuff rspamd has) compares to Gmail's solution? What's the correct detection rate? What's false positive rate?

In other words, is Gmail's spam filtering superior to what we have as an alternative?

I want to write a lightweight ActivityPub microblog like Mastodon but in Go and probably no-JS frontend (or at least with JS being optional). Any pain points with Mastodon/Pleroma I can try addressing along the way?

People keep rationalizing their beliefs and go voice such incomplete reasoning at the nearest echo chamber.

The primary problem of rationalism is that, in the environment of incomplete information it is possible to convincingly argue for anything.

My repository with binary packages for Arch Linux.

Packages available for: maddy, chasquid, ssr-wlroots fork, prometheus-bird-exporter, pkcs11-proxy.

If literally everybody stops donating to Mozilla, they will do just fine due to contracts with Google.

"Web 3.0" applications built on platforms like ETH cannot offer anything for free since distributed validation is based on corresponding cryptocurrency PoW scheme.

And so I made another project public, but not on GitHub - instead it is git.hexanet.dev, our own gitea server. Right now it is not complete, but I guess I will need to learn the art of telling people about cool stuff I made instead of relying on GitHub to get somebody there via their "discovery" thing.

(Finally I realized, this wasn't to enforce an anti fascist agenda, it was all about control)

I think all the Mastodon instance admins should write an open letter to Google to complain about this.

And promote F-droid at the same time.

This is related to points I made about distributed ledgers before. There are thousands of problems people think they can solve but in reality they cannot.

Simple, consistent, orthogonal.
That's how feature sets of good programming languages are described.

Android 10 removed the ability to change permissions for system applications. And more small steps Google is making to take away your freedom. Get a Pinephone.

Google search box on Android unconditionally uses Chrome if it is installed. It fallbacks to browser set as default only if Chrome is not installed.
