make no mistake -- YouTube wants to keep you trapped

and when they decide to ban you without warning, they don't want there to be backups

Don't agree with you on this. Let's get Mastodon as example. Yes, it's used by far right movements and other "bad people". But it wasn't build for that intent. That's not it's goal and the developer add moderation tools so that users and admins can limit the use and reach on the platform of such people. Guns on the other way are built with the only intent to cause harm and kill. If you aren't a law enforcer or military you shouldn't need a gun to defend yourself.

Plasma 5.20 Beta is out! Help KDE test the new features and improvements that will go into the final version to be released on October 13.

We demand that Google remove Chrome from their app store

It allows access to hate speech

RT @DocFreemo@twitter.com

Holy crap, google is apparently taking down all/most fediverse apps from google play on the grounds that that some servers in the fediverse engage in hate speech. At least three apps I know of anyway and I'd imagine the others will follow soon under the exact same (1/4)
