Here's a horse, some egg yolk and a small chapel in Venice. Please create an original avant-garde religious mural in the style of one of the Renaissance Masters and then point your webcam at it.
I'm sorry, that mural is not statistically heartfelt enough. Please recreate it.
📢 Ten Forward PSA for other fediverse admins📢
Today I received a content removal request from Linode asking me to remove two moderation announcements, specifically:
Linode asked I remove the content in good faith but since it does not include a US court order they will not require me to do so.
I declined to remove the content.
LB: If you’re used to Twitter, reporting users probably feels like a futile last resort but on fedi, moderation is done by human beings. You don’t need an iron-clad case - reporting rudeness, bad behaviour, or a sketchy vibe can alert mods to potential trouble even if they don’t take immediate action. And remember to check the “forward anonymously to the remote instance” button too

“Algospeak” is a new English dialect that emerged from the desperate attempts of social media users to “please the algorithm”: that is, to avoid words and phrases that cause social media platforms’ algorithms to suppress or block their communication.
#Algospeak is practiced by all types of social media users, from individuals addressing their friends to science communicators and activists hoping to reach a broader public. But the most ardent practitioners of algospeak are social media creators, who rely—directly or indirectly—on social media to earn a living.
