Okay, I discovered that Outlook.com MXes do not advertise STARTTLS capability to blacklisted IPs.

Scratch that, it may be a more specific issue. I can observe missing STARTTLS capability only from one location.

Okay, I missed the moment maddy got 1000 stars on GitHub because it went straight to 1.2k after hitting the HN front page. Nice.

@sir Languages are working as a prism for all our thoughts. And if you pay attention to what your are saying - it creates a feedback loop that indeed may affect your personality.

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.

@sir You are right. I (likely incorrectly) counted libc as part of toolchain.

@sir This would increase complexity of porting C toolchain to a new platform. On the other hand, this would enable many more software to be fully portable to any compliant platform.

This would put the end to the endless chaos of dozens of different event-loop implementations all duplicating each other since there will be The One True implementation. (this is especially severe in C++ world that essentially builds on C)

"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.
