@annika Congrats, and welcome to the davdroid club :)

Every time I use masto, I'm reminded hey! this is based on that other harmful thing without reconsidering the impacts of that design before mass adoption!
this isn't a critique of masto specifically, i ran a statusnet instance a long time ago, same deal

Just watched #TheGreatHack on #Netflix. What I appreciated about this #documentary on #Facebook and the whole #CambridgeAnalytica scandal, is that it's one of the few #privacy #documentaries to get that protecting personal data isn't just about not seeing personalized ads for stuff you're more likely to want. It's about protecting ourselves from mass psychological manipulation and behavior modification techniques. These are techniques that actually work *best* when people believe they don't.
@annika excellent, everyone waited to merge until the rewrite work was complete, and deploy went successfully. Thank goodness there do not appear to be any regressions or customer impacts!
