Sometimes we need to highlight posts from the fediverse. This will be a bit of a run of text strings.

Post by Lauren Weinstein. “Will public and private reactions to #Google’s Friday decision to permit 2020 U.S. election denial videos – of the sort that led to the violent January 6th insurrection – return to #YouTube be reversed by Google after such videos begin appearing again?” Posted on Jun 4, 2023 at 22:36

Post by frog. “@lauren If I disable my adblocker, youtube will play ads like “one simple trick to empty your bowels instantly every night and melt belly fat”. If they think reversing the decision will make them more money, they’ll do it.” Posted on Jun 4, 2023 at 22:40

Post by xethos. “@mcnulla In order, QNAP NAS + Wireguard, Posteo, Nextcloud, and Voip.ms Sharing via external links (like one would with GDrive) from the QNAP is pretty easy, to the point my parents have one of their own - which provides both of us with an offsite backup. Posteo support is both real, and helpful - they even knew, immediately, what my issue was when syncing to my BlackBerry Q10, several years after BlackBerrys stopped being a thing for most people.” Posted on Jun 4, 2023 at 23:41
Well, folks can find Nextcloud at https://nextcloud.com and the VoIP provider https://voip.ms/ exists too. Posteo is out there at https://posteo.de/en and QNAP sells all sorts of products at https://www.qnap.com/en-us. For those who need to migrate away from the Alphabet empire this frankly would be a decent start. Getting past using Android would still be a bit of an issue, though.
We’ll see what happens down the pike, I suppose.
