The users of the software does not equal the software itself or its creators.
People of the fediverse, hear my simple appeal to logic. Lots of bad actors use Apache and NGINX, two very popular web service packages. Does that mean its developers are nazis, and anyone who uses these web daemons are nazi supporters?
Bad actors are always going to use good software.
@kaniini oh, how misantripic
there's a lot of room between whatever manchild chestbeating is and whatever some pleroma devs do (i'm specifically not talking about you).
people are really sensitive to reactions like ice's because continuously saying you don't care about a topic that affects others weather they care or not is not exactly a good look - it doesn't mean you're a nazi, not really, it just means you can afford complacency that others cannot
you were also not the only one to push for signed pulls (and I had gab iptables'd for a while)
@kaniini I did notice how when I first got into discussions on the masto discord that in some regards eugen was indeed quite naive, but I think the recent events and people like us constantly insisting this _needs_ to happen has changed his mind at least partially, like, we discussed anomaly detection via metrics recently, something he'd have put off as "doesn't solve an issue" 6 months ago.
@kaniini also wasn't lain the person who wants pleroma to be sufficiently hard to use so "normal" people and corporations don't try to run instances?
@kaniini huh, I didn't know that was the reason, I always just assumed pleroma wanted to carve out their comfy little part of the fediverse without serious ambitions. Good to know.
@kaniini Like, I know one of the speecific goals is to run on low-power hardware so people can actually run it on a pi from home, but I didn't read more into it
@kaniini yeah, the only issue i see is that exposing a pi on your network to the internet always has been... problematic on most ISPs
@ice free speech instances /are/ bad, not because they allow free speech but because those words are mostly a shorthand for "we're fine with harassment and nazis".
We don't call places were marxism is discussed free speech instances, even though yes, that's a topic which US mainstream media would definitely not cover. Red scare and all.
