Good morning.
Hope you're having a good week. If not I wish it gets better. Mine was so-so and it results in no art from me for few days but it seems back to ok.

Hey everyone, I've had a few people ask and I'm not having problems with the moderation work-load, but thanks for checking!

You're generally very easy on me as a mod

The bigger reason why I closed sign-ups here is that building community just isn't something that can be done at scale

It takes relationship-building, getting to know people, connecting with them, vulnerability, consistency and investment in each other

And no it won't be the same as academic Twitter

But

Have you seen Twitter?

So here's an interesting question (?)

Have you ever heard of a privacy respecting, fediverse service or at least foss, for dating? For meeting other people online without ads and privacy horror stories?

First they came for the Communists
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a Communist

Then they came for the Socialists
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a Socialist

Then they came for the trade unionists
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a trade unionist

Then they came for the Jews
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a Jew

Then they came for me
And there was no one left
To speak out for me.

Very interesting research: homes.esat.kuleuven.be/~asenol

"Users' email addresses are exfiltrated to tracking, marketing and analytics domains before form submission and before giving consent"

-> yes, you read that right, before form submission.

This is an example of how the intransparency of the digital world leads to a huge #InformationAsymmetry between normal people and corporations.
