One of the things I dislike about #Signal is that I can't add people without asking for a phone number. There are people here who seem cool and I would probably chat with on Matrix, Briar or even Telegram. But I doubt anyone here would give me their number just for some random chatting
I really want to try this extension, but I have a feeling that I'd get super sick of seeing that "blocked" screen pretty quickly.

When watchdog came out. Everyone was like ' hacking doesn't work that way!'. Well now apparently it does... The video is pretty amazingly scary!
Holy crap, google is apparently taking down all/most fediverse apps from google play on the grounds that that some servers in the fediverse engage in hate speech. At least three apps I know of anyway and I'd imagine the others will follow soon under the exact same reasoning.} Seems to be the case with Husky, Fedilab, and "subway" tooter.
this is a scary precedent if google play is going to ban any apps that can in any way be used to access content with hate speech. So what about a forum client, do they take that down just because there is a forum somewhere on the internet posting hate speech?
This is particularly worrisome because for most people Google Play is the only way they understand to install apps at all.
