(#z3aysjq) At the risk of making the vote even more difficult, I don’t really mind either or have any strong opinion on the name. I don’t know what it means or what relationship it has to the original txtxt naming, but it also doesn’t evoke anything negative.

If there’s something nice that ties in well with the new Yarn.social naming though, then sure why not.


(#muqyewq) @prologic@twtxt.net Nah it’s going pretty strong last I saw, and it’s still up. I got sick of the echo chamber and also just got generally more into proper decentralised social media (ala, here 😂) so haven’t really been on there after initially checking it out. They have withstood everything thrown at them so far and stayed online so I’ll give them credit for that at least.


(#sojctqq) [2 / 2]…made far worse by platforms such as Facebook etc using algorithms to encourage negativity and conflict.

I think communities such as the ones you find here have a massive advantage of not having those algorithms obviously, but also the nature of the platform (protocol?) is you kind of make your community around you. And the whole experience is more interpersonal (as much as can be in text exchanges) and full of less distractions. I could ramble on but you get it 😄


(#sojctqq) Yeah I think behind a keyboard and monitor has made people act quite differently as a society towards each other. For example people will be rarely so radical or lean to such political extremes in person, but online is a different matter. I think also this grows exponentially on larger online spaces - the reason why as communities grow they tend to become more ‘noisy’ and what some may deem ‘toxic’. I think we’ve all seen that in some way or another, on those platforms [12]


(#sg2wy5q) @prologic@twtxt.net Yeah I agree; my issue is not that the technology can be used in such a powerful way, it’s the fact the data has to come from these big tech companies gathering it up all the wrong way.

In any case, I already use the government mandated QR check in app thing, I will not consent my data to be vacuumed up and given over by the likes of Bookface and Google 😆


(#pftowua) @prologic@twtxt.net Funny you should say that because I when I was first bringing https://we.loveprivacy.club to life I had a similar thought, but then with the new static discovery thing and also the option to switch on public viewing of the cached posts I didn’t think of it any more, thinking it would probably just be extra complexity at the time. I guess the question is how difficult (or not) would it be to implement? I like the idea personally.
