if you aren't on the receiving end of violence you don't get to decide what is or is not violence or what needs to be done about it

ginger's tech opinions: 

framasoft? the same french company in charge of peertube? that admitted to not considering anti-abuse tools at all during development? whose fediverse component doesn’t allow blocking and other Really Important and Basic safety functions?

u mean that framasoft?

... keep it tbh.

@rice @gid There's good evidence that moderation does reduce hate speech. If someone says horrible things about women or about people with disabilities, clear words and actions from moderators that these statements are not welcome do a lot to reduce them overall.

Without these moderator words and actions, the nasties proliferate and even encourage each other.

We have evidence that you don't have to tolerate the bad to keep the good.

please invite me to your next tech convention

i am happy to give a talk called "fuck you, pay me" or "FOSSbros Are Big Baby Mans Who Need Binkies, Not Capital" or even just a Q&A and you can ask me things and I may or may not answer or I'll maybe just do some screams

Todd also had this strange view that by applying a policy that Purism would immediately become “dictators”, and that moderators within the fediverse are dictators…

ITS FINALLY DONE

Still need to wash and iron it but I couldn't wait!!

Happy belated by a couple weeks birthday @winvi !!!!!!!!!

The conversation with Todd from Purism was completely unproductive in my mind. In his view, there are only two possible options for moderation:

• Become a complete censorship machine with a slippery slope of who can or cannot speak

• Go by the jurisdiction users are in, hiding content illegal in certain jurisdictions and then removing content illegal in the poster's jurisdiction, for example a Chinese user's dissent against the Chinese gov't would be removed.

There are two problems that I brought up that, being that:

• Purism would be participating in the injustices of those countries

• Legal but harmful content would still be allowed, thus spreading harm.

I felt completely ignored when trying to get this across to him, especially that last bit. I also tried explaining to him that a slippery slope does not exist when you have set principles that you stick to within rules, but that completely flew over his head. It also ended with him basically telling me to solve the problem with a solution that works for every country everywhere and then get back to him. So, the block & boycott of Purism continues.
