@reykjalin So you're entire premise for disagreeing with me is a strawman of something I didn't say.

So goodbye.

@reykjalin Right here is what I am blown away by.

Having privacy and being a a part of a community are not the same thing. I never said they can't have privacy. But we don't have to welcome them into our circles. Listen to them, or interact with them.

The fact everyone sees "community" and thinks that means they can't use privacy apps is mind blowing.

@x Someone literally just asked me why I believe fascism has no place in society... How is that a question?

@JonYoder How would saying that fascists don't belong in our communities be trolling?

Fascists should feel unwelcome everywhere. They should feel unsafe everywhere.

They have no place in our society or among us.

Given the hate from the right we are getting on bird site right now, I’ll say it here as well.

ThinkPrivacy supports anti fascists in their struggles around the globe, we believe that all black lives matter, and we do not believe fascists or those who sympathize with fascists have any place in our communities.

@TheFuzzStone You can't leave politics out of FOSS. It is everywhere.

However, I don't see how anyone can compare the left to the right. One's taking away people's rights, literally murdering people, and the other is the left trying to stop that.

Start a shit storm on Twitter by saying that fascists have no place in the privacy community.

You can spot the fascists as they are the ones getting really upset about it.

@marti I use Nextcloud personally.

Google Keep wise, I use StandardNotes.

@marti Yes! DuckDuckGo, Startpage, Mojeek, and others. It's personal preference on results really, which is why I use Startpage (the serve Google results). But DDG is highly respected.

My latest on Startpage's Privacy Please blog about the difference between using a VPN and a privacy respecting search engine (and why you need to do both!)

@freddy There are certainly some learning curves, yet there's already a lot of those when moving to distance learning, or even going off to college for the first time.

@freddy So when I write, I use LibreOffice and convert everything to Word to submit. I can def say I have not run into an issue with any editor even realizing I didn't write in Word.

Yes, I think Nextcloud could be tough for some, but if you can swing it, it's worth it.

I have a new piece up on Hacker Noon about privacy suggestions for students going back to school with distances learning.

@spences10 I went Ubuntu, Fedora, Manjaro, and then ended up on Arch. I don't see myself leaving Arch now. Manjaro was nice though, I didn't personally have issues with it.

@geekgonecrazy Maybe, however, you'd assume Obama would also have that level of protection as well.

Well, I can't tweet for the time being, but I can toot!
