One of the things I dislike about 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 just discovered that DuckDuckGo has a CSS prettifier and minifier

@kev is missing styles for checkboxes and radio buttons. Submitted a pull request today and I must admit that styling checkboxes in pure css is quite painful.

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.

@sotolf @kev "ask the internet" definitely seems like a nice alternative

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.

Picture attached of one of the notices received by fedilab.
