Is your network unusually slow? Are websites blocked?
Install OONI Probe to find out if there's censorship or other anomalies on your network. It just got a major UX revamp, so it's easier to use than ever: https://ooni.torproject.org/post/revamped-ooni-probe-mobile-app/

That feeling when you follow someone for their great top post, and their post frequency drowns your entire feed with their self-important bullshit.
Don't take my unfollow the wrong way. You're clever and entertaining and I like you... For like 3 posts a day. But your stream of consciousness is a fire hose.
One reason I love #Fosstodon (and the majority of the #Fediverse) is because most of the people here may disagree strongly with my thoughts, but more often than not people stay fairly respectable. I can call many of you (with whom I completely disagree on a very basic level) colleagues and friends. There is virtually no love-loss because of a disagreement.
It gives me hope for the future of humanity that there are so many polar opposites being excellent to each other!
Hey guys, learned about this epic alternative to twitter from CCC. My first social network that I join, and happily! I'm really curious what will happen ;)
Thanks @fosstodon for providing this instance!
Just a few things about me: I'm a FOSS enthusiast (obviously!), I adore Linux and always strive for a deeper understanding of it, I am interested in infosec and cryptography and also care a lot about digital and analog games!
Not completely FOSS related but damn. It never stops huh.

Preaching to the choir here, but decentralization is important!!
"Why does decentralization matter? - Official Mastodon Blog"
I’m seeing lots of posts today about how #Facebook is tracking Android users via the SDK.
Is this really a shock to people? Like, really? This is Facebook we’re talking about here.
The answer is simple...delete your account.
And yes, I know it tracks even if you don’t have an account. So use a VPN, or don’t use that app.
Even if you don’t though, by not having a FB account you significantly reduce the amount of data they have on you anyway.
Student with a great interest in technology and believes FOSS, decentralization, and more privacy are essential to the modern internet.
