📢 Ten Forward PSA for other fediverse admins📢

Today I received a content removal request from Linode asking me to remove two moderation announcements, specifically:

Linode asked I remove the content in good faith but since it does not include a US court order they will not require me to do so.

O Brother, Where Art Thou? Has anybody seen my printer? :(
