Gibt es einen Routenplanner, bei dem man sagen kann: versuche bitte alle 2 bis 2,5 Stunden eine Pause (idealerweise an ner Raststätte/Autohof) mit einzuplanen? #followerpower
The #Fediverse is not a secure messenger.
Mastodon doesn't claim to be and is transparent about it. Evil instance admins could extract your DMs from the database and therefore are technically able to read them.
The same fact is true for most messengers, email, SMS, Twitter, Google Hangouts, Skype, Riot, IRC…
Private and confidential conversations require a platform with *mandatory end-to-end encryption*. Social media and most messengers are technically incapable to protect your privacy.
A friend of mine sent me this. I know it's at Twitter, and I know it may be unwelcome here, but more information is best, when it comes to making decisions and choices.
(tl;dr: Mastodon may not be the best choice for you, especially if you're a vulnerable or marginalized person).
@wilw I've seen this thread and a few others pointing out the same and similar issues with the platform, and I think it's important that everyone here be fully aware of the risks and limitations. I think everyone should pay attention and do some research into the moderation and administration teams of various instances in order to find one they feel will suit them. Many of the impersonation and similar concerns are the same issues which have always been present in distributed systems like email.
