As one of the many small registrar's who are members of Nominet, we support this. Nominet should be more like RIPE, it was set up as a public body. It should act like one.
Thank you Gladserv, we really appreciate your support. 15.9% and counting...

Someone "popular" on the security community on Twitter said to never host your own mail server...
Actually, do the opposite.
-Host your own mail server
-Host your own matrix homeserver
-Host your own mastodon instance
-Host your own DNS server if you can
Just do it securely and follow the good practices
Fight back on the centralization of the web.
hey y'all, I would appreciate boosts for this, there's a petition appealing to the British government for the removal of gender markers from ID (passports, drivers license, etc) and only folks from the UK may sign it but if it reaches 10,000 signatures, it is guaranteed a response from the government and if it reaches 100,000 it may even be debated in parliament
it only takes a few seconds to sign but could make a massive difference https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/327554

A thing I wish more people in IT would understand:
The fact that browsers come with their own lists of trusted root CAs and the poor UX around managing CA trust is a big problem because it centralizes that trust.
It means that in practice who you trust on the web is decided by your browser vendor – it means that for the majority of humanity #Google gets to decide who is trustworthy and who isn't.
Reminder folks: the deadline for next round of NLnet funding closes tomorrow at 1200 CET.
