I would say so too, if it was more than just a hobby. Nevertheless, anybody can add the Creative Commons license to their work as long as it is their own work.
Hobby bloggers like to make this their own. But I understand the point you’re making.


And I’m running several lawsuits against individuals because of copyright infringements. So it definitely matters enough.


Unfortunately, I have to disappoint you. Copyright infringement also matters when private individuals are affected. E.g. when a private person uses CreativeCommons, MIT, or GPL license. CreativeCommons is mostly used for text.
In addition, you need to read the TOS of the platform to see if they do not take the rights, as Facebook does, for example.



yeah. A better overview would be really lovely 😄
Especially, that dndlanguages.com seem to miss some, like Drowish.


Simply ban the IPs & the accounts of the abusers while enforcing the rules, and it shall be clean after a while.

That would work. But banning the IP would mean banning whole instances, because spam does not only come from the local instance. Banning the user by username does work for 5 minutes, before they register a new account.
Since nobody who’s hosting a Lemmy instance is paying a professional moderation team, which is 24/7 available to ban spam, it’s almost impossible to react in time.

I don’t know how it works in lemmy, but each instance could go and have a word filter (if the post contains a blacklisted word, it would be held for review).

This word filter is called slur-Filter and is available. Nevertheless, this has been criticized by outsiders very often and Lemmy as a whole was made bad.

I am Not Talking about the software feature, I am talking about why the 5,000 or so users who have an account at lemmy are unable to speak & interact with each other.

I don’t think it’s particularly beneficial to criticize Lemmy because some instance blocks others, but applaud Mastodon for “moderation”, on which a hashtag is highly valued that “recommends” blocking entire instances because one person has a problem with another on another instance.


As for moderation, mastodon is going to pass 8,000,000 users soon, and they have gab and truth social there, yet they are still able to moderate it.

With what I’ve experienced on Mastodon so far, the “moderation” consists almost entirely of overblocking by distributing blacklists, which are primarily controlled by bigger instances.


That sounds interesting. Especially the part for the Drow 🤔

Do you mean that you do this to have a static IP pointing to an admin page? Why does that increase security?

Exactly this. You can configure nginx/apache this way, that specific pages, like an admin interface, are only reachable from a specific IP range. If it comes from another one, you can return whatever you want.
It increases security in this way, that crawler don’t even get known about such administrative pages and there’s no way to brute-force the login.

Edit: Thanks for the tip with Nyr OpenVPN.


I’m running 2 OpenVPN server. One on a VPS in Canada and one in Germany. The main purpose is to lock admin pages to a fix IP to increase security.
I always avoid the supposedly secure, paid VPN services, because you never know what is really recorded there. At least, you run your entire Internet traffic over it. And with these prices, you can almost lease a small VPS, install OpenVPN and browse through it.




At first, the moderation was not even there. After I wrote to them and asked for moderation, it took almost 2 days until one of the two wrote back, accused me accordingly the mentioned and suspended only my account from the community. The fact that a certain guy was harassing me there was completely ignored. So this member can continue to spread his lies about me there without the moderation taking action.
If you now also consider that the insomniac moderation team of 2 persons is responsible for more than 3000 members of the group, it is simply unacceptable.


Thousands of single Twitter-Clones, where everyone talks to themselves. 🤣


Es geht mir mehr um das drumherum. Mehr als eine Eingabebox und die ein oder andere Zeitleiste.


Stimmt. Friendica hatte ich auch schon ausprobiert.
Ja, Friendica ist richtig gut, wäre allerdings für das einfach loswerden von schlichten, kleinen Gedanken etwas zu viel des guten und eignet sich mehr für größere, Themenbezogene Diskussionen.


Welche AP-Microblogging Software gibt es?
Im Grunde genommen möchte ich gerne mal ein wenig ActivityPub kompatible Microblogging Software wie [Takahē](https://jointakahe.org/) herum experimentieren. Wirklich viel hab ich allerdings nicht finden können, was auf den ersten Blick auch brauchbar aussah. Bisher habe ich ausprobiert: Pleroma, Mastodon, MissKey, HubZilla sind mir zu aufgebläht. Zudem will ich als Admin mit Mastodon nicht in Verbindung gebracht werden. Die Software ist nicht schlecht, aber die Community entwickelt sich im Steilflug zu einer 1:1 Kopie von Twitter. GNUsocial ist toll und auch die Entwickler klasse, aber hatte ich erstens schon und zweitens zu viel drumherum. GotoSocial: Im Grunde nicht schlecht. Minimal und mit Tusky kompatibel. **Aber**: Die Entwickler sind mehr als aggressiv und treten jeden mit Füßen, der nicht ihre Liebe zum Overblocking mit #Fediblock teilt. microblog.pub: Ist mir schon fast zu schlicht. Ich möchte nicht noch erst eine saubere Oberfläche entwickeln müssen. Ich weiß. Im Grunde genommen ist Takahē schon genau das, was ich suche. Aber wer weiß, vielleicht kennt ja jemand von euch doch noch etwas passendes? 😄

Takahē
Ich habe mir mal erlaubt, [Takahē](https://jointakahe.org/) unter tavern.drow.be zu installieren. Auch wenn es noch sehr gering in der Funktionalität ist, so ist es doch schon recht ansprechend und hat, in meinen Augen, einiges an Potenzial. Schade, dass es noch nicht wirklich zum Einsatz funktioniert, da Optionen, wie "Antworten" scheinbar fehlen, aber es zeigt gut, wohin es geht. Ich finde es schön schlicht, minimal. Eigentlich das, was Microblogging sein sollte, oder?
fedilink

Das klingt eigentlich sehr interessant. Hat da schon jemand erfahrung mit? Ich konnte leider keine laufende Instanz davon finden.

Mastodon - Who blocks whom
A few days ago, a page was published in the Fediverse where you could check which Mastodon instance is blocking whom in the Fediverse. This was made possible by a programmer who used the new Mastodon API introduced in 4.0 and automatically read out the blacklists of the instances. The information about who blocks who is in many ways more than just interesting for those who want to choose an instance. As it was already written in a German thread about the topic, it would be helpful to know whether you reach your target group at all, if you register on an instance.

Removing badly moderated community /c/Fediverse
We remove the /c/Fediverse from our instance, because moderation is almost gone and if they’re active, they tolerate harassment, spreading hate-speech and lies, and interpret a publication of a who blocks whom list as “Weird unhinged rant trying to just basically air out which instances are blocked by which before going on a huge unhinged rant”. While the creator and spreader of lies and hate speech is allowed to continue spreading his lies, the creator is banned for 14 days. The moderation is consistently illogical and inhumane and only increasingly supports the spread of hatred and agitation, which, according to most Fediverse instances, actually did not want to take over from Twitter and Co. For those who still wants to see the file, they removed: https://mws.bka.li/sharex/who_blocks_whom_on_mastodon.json

It's kind of amusing how often reality and fiction are mixed just to have something. I have noticed this, especially when it comes to religion or politics.

The continuing reaction of rysiek, through ignorance, arrogance and an apparent absence of intelligence on his part, as well as on the part of his followers, only confirms my decision and furthermore becomes more like a recommendation for all administrators in the Fediverse to ban the aggressors mentioned here completely.
But interesting that he instantly takes it as harassment if you mention him, but he doesn’t take it as harassment when he spreads hatred and lies against others.


He killed Chewbacca? :o …
I currently have only read the Drizzt saga, but was not really convinced by it. My next plan was the Dark Elf Trilogy, but I heard that’s the same as Drizzt?




I must admit, that I’ve played none of them 🤣 Our DM creates his own adventures since years now.



Die Idee klingt nicht schlecht. Ich habe allerdings mit Yacy die Tage etwas herumexperimentiert und alleine die Tatsache, dass Yacy Java basiert ist, erhöht den Ressourcenverbrauch von RAM und CPU enorm. Viele Instanzen könnten sich den Verbrauch nicht mehr leisten. Wenn dann noch wieder irgendwas auf Twitter passiert, was die Leute dazu bewegt, sich massenhaft im Fediverse zu registrieren, werden viele mit noch mehr Serverproblemen kämpfen, als sie es so schon tun würden.


Arme Socke 😞 Ich drück dir die Daumen, dass du da bald was findest.


Ich hab seit Jahren (fast) jeden Sonntag eine Gruppe über Roll20. Meist so mindestens 3 bis 4 Stunden, manchmal übertreiben wir es aber auch ein wenig und hören erst irgendwo nach 12 bis 14 Stunden auf 🤣



I was always happy with the combination of transmissiond running on a file server and transmission-remote as client, available for Linux, Windows and Android.
