Hey y'all, I took the time to write up my techbro's journey through the Fediverse in a more verbose format, that puts my arguments together in a bit more linear and rational order.

Meet Gamma. Gamma dislikes advertisement-funded social media, so comes to the Fediverse. But without the systemic bias, he finds his opinions harshly criticized. This makes him uncomfortable.

Why, and what happens next?

@privacylab "One recent study found that Amazon is the second most-trusted institution of any kind in the United States, ahead of Google, the police, and the higher-education system, and trailing only the U.S. military."

that's gotta be one of the most fucked up sentences I ever read

All developers should have to play this “game” daily for a week as part of their education.

It’s brilliantly bad, and so extremely familiar that I didn’t know whether to laugh or cry

Globuli sind eine legitime Backzutat wenn man das entsprechende Kleingeld hat

Aus einer Alternate Bewertung:

Produkt funktioniert einwandfrei.
Die korrekte Installation hätten sogar die Silberfischchen aus meinem Badezimmer hinbekommen.
Ergo: Politiker, Anlageberater, Hedgefondmanager und andere minderbemittelte Verbrecher mit einem IQ knapp unter Zimmertemperatur können hier bedenkenlos zugreifen!

You step forward, he steps back.

The only thing that has changed is that a new generation of web developers have grown up and started to systematically dismantle everything we did a generation ago to stop these bastards when they nearly killed the open web the first time. We had to sacrifice free/open/unmoderated public spaces because this is how they got in our faces to do their dirty deeds. Spammers, scammers, hate groups, malware providers, and a whole host of other self-interested parties drawn by the promise of infinite/global reach for their message; whatever it might be. We can't go back - the age of innocence is long gone.

Ironically the best anti-abuse tool we had was "buddylists" which later evolved into "social networks" and more recently de-evolved back to where we started. It's more convenient to pretend that everybody can get along in public.

We can't.
