codes of conduct
someone said "there is no reason not to read it."
i disagree. there is no reason to read them (or laws for that matter.) why? because rule sheets only matter as much as the people who enforce them. and enforcers tend to selectively decide who rules apply to and can be very adept at mental masturbation to get out of even the most strictly written rules.
for instance the US constitution says "congress shall enact no law abridging freedom of speech or of the press." that's a pretty bulletproof sentence, but they've jerked themselves off that "well uh, bad speech doesn't count as speech and so that's why we can violate that sentence!"
written codes are just cover your ass measures from people who want to appear to have a diplomatic face, so they can shrug behind paper documents when their decisions are criticized. there is no point in reading one; you will not get unbanned because you argued a loophole in an admin's paperwork. just like reading a law does nothing but false security, because a judge can just decide to ignore it and even knowing the current "precedent" means very little since they can flip flop on that too.

The free software Android Appstore #F-Droid has released a statement indicating that they will not give into demands that they censor blacklist-free software like Fedilab - which can be used to access #gab - or blacklist-riddled software like Tusky. Both censoring and freedom-respecting software is allowed in the F-Droid Appstore's catalog.
I shitpost, and I protect Ekko. This is my purpose.
Yes, I should drive you wild.
A silly domain for test deploys, now has a mastodon instance. A place for memes as shitty as the name. Zero bullshit tolerated.
