Covid targets the fat, the obese. That's a fact you won't hear on the evening news: "You are FAT. Lose weight!" If Covid doesn't get you, there are a dozen other diseases in line to kill you if you are fat.

Warning: Language. Don't listen to his near children.

New Rule: Give It to Me Straight, Doc | Real Time with Bill Maher (HBO)

It’s Saturday, so you know what that means!

I am once again asking that you start your own instance. Just do it. Control your own data, make your own rules, and choose what you see. It’s fun. And as the Fediverse scales horizontally, we will each individually hold a larger stake in the network.

Again, if you are having any trouble, please (!) feel free to reach out to me. I will be more than happy to help you out with whatever problems you have.

Set it up on a server that is yours or will be yours

https://fediverse.express/ (online installer)
https://yarrps.xyz/ (a helpful install script)
https://docs.pleroma.social/backend/installation/otp_en/ (official installation instructions)

Pay someone else to host it for you

If you have to use #Cloudflare for some reason, you can still allow #Tor users to bypass the annoying challenge that usually comes up.

Check "Firewall" -> "Tools", and add an IP access rule for "Tor" with action "Allow".

New #blogpost: “Misinformation about Permissions Policy and FLoC”.

Lots of people have been spreading the often-unnecessary advice to add a Permissions-Policy response header to their sites, and some have been going so far as to ask FLOSS maintainers to patch their software to make this the default.

If you read the actual proposals and W3C specs, you’ll find a different story.

Everybody: please calm down, take a deep breath, and read before you make such prescriptive advice.

FLoC is terrible, but telling everyone to add a magic “opt-out header” in every situation conveys a misunderstanding of everything you need to know about the opt-in/out process.

Docker creates immutable images that can't be hacked.

This may be an even better option, or addition. Just display in a banner what FLOC is, show users how to en/disable it, and let them decide. Make visible what is hidden.

Just added
Permissions-Policy: interest-cohort=()
on my sites since I'm not interested in being an unfunded tracker in someone else's business model

Someone explain to me why that is not illegal ( inside trading ):
