i made a post with my thoughts about the whole archival thing here:

"Just because something’s publicly available doesn’t mean people want it harvested and stored forever by a dedicated group of data archivists. Posting your phone number on a billboard isn’t consenting to having your phone number posted online by an archival team. Neither is protesting in public, or having a conversation in public, or going skinny-dipping in public, or walking past a CCTV camera in public. Being in public does not mean you automatically consent to having your activities archived."

A serious reminder: Please note that prison labor In the US is not "like" slave labor, it is expressly slave labor. The constitution allows for forcing slave labor upon inmates. It *is* slave labor, it is exactly slave labor, and it has never been anything but slave labor.

The exact wording of the 13th Amendment is "Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction." Expressly, slave labor is still perfectly legal, so long as the state can make you into a criminal, and it will if it can.
