is there a url shortener that is ethically acceptable among masto users?

We do need more than a tiny minoraty of to step away. Diversaty is healthy.

Have you thought of the "power polatics" impact of the spread of "codes of conducts" its good to empower people... Its dangerous to give people. "hard rules" to hit each other. The is a long disgusting history of the second happening? So are the better ways to empower people?

Time to use #leaflet and #openstreetmap


Q. But that isn't encryption.

A. HTTPS with a self signed cirtificate create scary pop up messages that are disaster for outreach. The aggregation/RSS is As I said they overlap. The theam of control...
