Gab; Nazis; blocking people
Fair warning: if you're going to tell me I should let the nazis in and debate them to defeat them, my first instinct will be that you are also a nazi...because that is and has always been their first step. And I'm not afraid or ashamed to block anyone I think might be a nazi, because guess what: me choosing to ignore you isn't 'censorship'; you are not entitled to my time or my ears.
Don't 👏 Platform 👏 And Debate 👏 Nazis
Dear IT-humans: Please do yourselves a favour and create security@ as an email address on all of your domains which is actually routed and read by someone with knowledge about your IT!
That way you make it easy for people who accidentally stumble upon security issues with your infrastructure to actually report them to you.
The sheer fact of having and reading security@ (as mandated by RFC 2142) will help improving your IT security.

twitter, nazis, Mastodon discourse
xkcd’s take on free speech can’t be posted often enough, especially with regards to the hordes of man children, nazis and bigots on borblesite demanding for their instances to be “recognized” or listed officially..
Guess what? It’s not going to happen, because the community is showing you the virtual door.. 👋🖕
Like think about the kind of web we could self-host without having to pay for web hosting providers to rent tiny slices of computing time. Pretty much every home machine is way overpowered for web hosting, and you can buy dedicated hardware for hosting for just a few dollars now. ISPs are Soo hostile to this, though: data caps, double nat'ing, refusing to roll out ipv6, charging ridiculous amounts for static ips... All of it is just a disaster when you think about what the internet could be.
