get ready for an uptick in the "if you've got nothing to hide, you've got nothing to fear" argument, and the stigmatization of decentralized & privacy-forward tech
why don't you just use Twitter and Facebook, huh? are you a racist Nazi pedophile?
@pareinoia I’m actually not expecting this. Signal is #1 on app stores, Telegram just had a massive 25m influx of users. Only bluechecks might try to push that, if anything stuff like EARN IT just got way more precarious than it was before.
From a public opinion perspective anyway. Both parties are very unhappy with section 230 so we can expect terrible legislation incoming.
@pareinoia seeing so many normies on Facebook already saying this kind of thing, and it will be even more common once the new admin starts pushing for stronger moderation controls
@pareinoia i have the excuse of being libertarian socialist* but not everyone does
*probably more acceptable, but makes avoiding large corporations understandable
@pareinoia at least it’ll shift the axis from left/right to top-down/bottom-up. Would give the libertarian-leaning left- and right-of-center more common ground. Maybe they’ll even start hanging out more.
@pareinoia and again, be ready for it from people like TastyTea who will literally turn around and villainize anybody who archives *their* posts
@pareinoia I am pretty sure I am by my shit holes definition of all those terms ...
and its because I am just an honest person who often makes crude jokes and likes anime.
