I just found out about the difficulties that #PrivacyTools is currently experiencing. It sounds like they may have to eventually shutdown their Mastodon instance (as well as PeerTube and Matrix), which is not great for their users. Unfortunately, they don't have a lot of options. Whether they're going to fire those back up under a new domain is still under discussion. I hope their users can migrate off to some other instance, and of course they're welcome here.
