Dedoimedo Interview About Tux Machines

Mon, 11 Dec 2017 22:56:11 +0000

Original at Dedoimedo Can you please introduce yourself? I am a programmer dedicated to promoting the cause of Free software, i.e. control by users of their computers/computing. This cause extends to various different facets because, quite inevitably, Free (or libre) software depends on transparent systems that maximalise cooperation and foster collaboration. This means that, unwittingly, […]



Mastodon is Actually a Lot Worse Than Twitter When it Comes to Free Speech. Avoid It.

Thu, 23 Nov 2017 23:50:15 +0000

Mastodon is Oppressive t has been three days since the ban (“suspension” they said) and it turns out I was wrong to believe that this was temporary. It’s actually a lot worse than this. They added insult to injury. As it turned out, the Mastodon network had effectively shadowbanned me for months. This isn’t the […]



Mastodon is Free Software, But It Does Not Respect Free Speech (Updated)

Tue, 21 Nov 2017 08:34:26 +0000

This is what I get when I log in O-called ‘social networks’ (I’ve coined the term “social control networks” for these) are supposed to facilitate a diversity of views. Not threats. Not calls for genocide. These strands of ‘speech’ constitute violations of very particular laws and for defensible reasons. But the point being, let people […]



BT Spies on Tweets About BT, Ignores Complaints About Price Hikes

Tue, 07 Nov 2017 15:24:41 +0000

EW recruits can make mistakes; I get that. Some mistakes are a little more embarrassing then others however. BT, like many other companies, tracks any mention (in Social Control Media) about BT. I’ve always wondered how that works behind the scenes and under an hour ago, after I had mentioned new price hikes, I got […]



If So-called ‘Ownership Rights’ of Money Are Deprived, Mainstream Media Should Speak About It

Tue, 29 Aug 2017 11:03:09 +0000

AST year I wrote a rant about how I could not withdraw/retrieve my own money from the bank. It was new to me that banks can simply deny withdrawal of one’s deposited money. I actually had to spend many hours and make many visits to the bank to eventually get my own money. A lot […]



Fighting For My Free Speech

Sun, 27 Aug 2017 12:19:22 +0000

But it’s actually up and running, something in the network prevents access to it HILE Mr. Trump fights for his “safe space” by blocking me (and many other critics of his), I myself never block anyone. I never preached for anything other than free speech, including speech or messages that I strongly disagree with. I […]



Trump Blocks Me in Twitter

Sat, 29 Jul 2017 16:50:08 +0000

ESS than an hour ago Donald Trump decided to simply gag me and prevent me from seeing what he was saying. This man child (with the mentality of an adolescent boy) cannot take criticism, can he? Just like in politics. He has just blocked me in Twitter. Makes one wonder just how many other people […]



Punished for Being Fast? Twitter Lockouts When Least Expected

Sat, 06 May 2017 19:27:15 +0000

have just (for the first time ever) received this message on two of my computers, which I am using to view activity on Twitter and post. I never automated anything. Ever. I post manually from the browser. Yes, the browser. Yet I’ve just got this: I actually had to rely on someone else’s phone as […]

Political News Sources

Sun, 16 Apr 2017 21:51:25 +0000

t’s definitely not easy identifying accurate information — in that hypothetical journey to find sources of credible news. It’s very easy to find bogus news wrapped up in special effects with high entertainment value and a high budget intended to help sell something (products, war, etc.) rather than inform. The challenge is putting aside those. […]
