Here are the things that get you banned:

  • authoritarian behavior

Enforcing your preferred kind of politics with guns sounds like a bad idea. I’m German, we did that a few times in our history.

Luckily, scorpions rarely attack you from a tree in Central Europe.

Religion was a bad idea.

Religion is the sole reason why Israel even exists and why Muslims hate the Jews.

@tux0r@feddit.de avatar

Go right back to the time of the Crusades, in the Rhineland massacres Christians were killing Jewish people and looting their homes.

Around the year 800, many Saxons were killed, tortured or forcibly baptised on the orders of Charlemagne, which German paganism could hardly cope with. Every religion has its violent phase.

The WTFPL is risky in certain jurisdictions, as it does not have a NO WARRANTY clause.

How does it defend a website to deny reading access to static content?

It should be easy to distinguish a bot from a real user though, isn't it?

Websites do not have the functionality to connect to mail servers. These are different protocols.

For mail server infrastructure, Stalwart is said to be pretty good. I haven't had a chance to try it yet.

tux0r ,
@tux0r@feddit.de avatar

If you try it, report back. ;-) My current setup is mostly OpenSMTPD & Dovecot, but I'm open for good reasons to move away.

A website is the response a web server sends on a web port to a web browser. SMTP on port 80/443 won’t work well, but please try.

JMAP sounds interesting indeed, but as far as I understand, there is an underwhelming number of clients that speak it?

tux0r ,
@tux0r@feddit.de avatar

You understand that web servers (listening on a web server port) and mail servers (listening on one or more mail server ports, possibly on the same computer) are entirely different technologies?

tux0r ,
@tux0r@feddit.de avatar

Again, I’m talking about the server part here, and there is a lot preventing a server to be both a web and a mail server.

  • Stopped using reddit, went here instead.
  • Intensified my Mastodon usage, winding down my Twitter activity.
  • Started using my own mail server for more than just a few tests.
  • Changed search engines a few times (I'll probably stick with Kagi now).
  • Reduced my subscriptions and cleaned up my RSS feeds.
  • Stopped doomscrolling (I subscribed to a weekly paper newspaper instead).
  • Started using Ulysses for writing. Works very well.

Primer:

  1. Usenet is for text, not for piracy. Just because you can share giant files over NNTP, that does not mean that you should. I mean, the IRC supports “file sharing” too, but there are much better protocols for that.
  2. The main hurdle trying to abuse NNTP for piracy is to find a Usenet provider that actually mirrors binaries. I am not aware of any free one, as it takes very much traffic and disk space.

Codeberg is supposedly located in the EU while not requiring self-hosting, maybe that’s why.

tux0r ,
@tux0r@feddit.de avatar

Oh, come on. It wasn’t that bad! At least it granted (and still grants) the freedom of choosing which VCS shall make your day harder than necessary.

tux0r , (edited )
@tux0r@feddit.de avatar

I know, but most people are lazy these days (and self-hosting stuff in the EU has become a legal battle against every week’s new rules).

tux0r ,
@tux0r@feddit.de avatar

One of the reasons might be that the number of SVN hosting facilities has decreased over the past two decades.

I know, but most people won’t. :-)
