A thread on MuskSite about how gamification makes it hard for people to leave and makes them a bit disappointed when they try other sites. Please do share over there if interested, if you're still posting there to try and help people escape...

Just requested my data from Twitter (sorry, Musk Social) which can do from twitter.com/settings/download_

Apparently it can take 24 hours to prepare the archive.

Once I have my data, I’ll be closing my Twitter (sorry, Musk Social) account this week and telling them to delete my data.

Unable to post mas.to profile URL to birdsite 

keeps complaining that my mas.to profile URL is "potentially harmful" 🤔 It took the URL from a profile in another instance without problems though... Any ideas why this might be @trumpet? Thanks!

The official Mastodon app really needs to add support for the "Local" timeline.

It was (presumably) left out because on larger servers it's an overwhelming firehose and seems useless.

However, on smaller servers it's a really important way to build a sense of community.

Instances like social.chinwag.org put a lot of work into making their local timeline pleasant for their members, and they have withdrawn from the JoinMastodon.org directory in protest at the lack of Local support in the official app. This is a bad sign, it shows something has gone wrong in relations with smaller instances.

Small servers are really good for Masto, because the more small servers there are, the harder it will be for any amoral billionaires to try to buy up the network.

If you agree that the Local timeline should be added to the official app, please add thumbs up to the relevant issues on GitHub:

Hi! mastodon.social is being slow right now, as far as I can tell because there's twice as many people using it at the same time as ever have; I'm working on making it go fast again, but in the meantime, do remember to invite people to joinmastodon.org instead of directly to mastodon.social. People don't have to be on the same server to follow you! Thanks!

> Websites on the internet are constantly trying to get you to complete actions. Whether it's buying something, reccomending a friend or posting private information, there is a lot of value in getting you to perform specific actions. However, some websites go too far and try to trick or mislead you into doing what they want. This has led to what are called "Dark Patterns", or shady ways of tricking you into performing actions without you knowing.

> It's important that you are aware of these patterns, and so below are a list of dark patterns with interactive examples. The more you know, the more control you will have.

I implore any #FLOSS group using #Telegram to consider switching to @matrix for public (unencrypted) and private (#E2EE) chats, and #Fediverse services (Mastodon, Pleroma, Write.as etc) for announcements. And Discourse.

Of course Elsevier's "enhanced pdf viewer" tracks where you click, view, if you hide the page, etc. and then transmits a big base64 blob of events along with ID from University proxy when you leave. I'm sure straight to SciVal for sale.
Is this the way we want science to work?

If you can't bear to live without having infinite access to every music you could possibly want, you're not a music fan, you're an addict. You're addicted to consumer convenience. You're addicted to the entitlement to have everything at your disposal and you're ignoring the very, very real cost of that convenience. It's not worth it.
