    It might be worth considering putting the Queer Tildes server there or in the ~lgbt wiki to avoid bringing too much attention, not sure. I think @Gaywallet knows best when it comes to that so I'll leave it to them.

    I'd rather ask before joining but would this server accept allies? I can see the benefit of both excluding them and allowing them in the safe space so I'd rather ask before including myself....

    Either way, I hope it goes well. ❤️

    I think putting it similarly to labels would be much more accessible to new comers than a relatively cryptic thing to put in the comment box so I'd definitely opt for that.

    I wonder if it's because of things similar to what @cfabbro showed to exist to have existed in the project or if it's something else 🤔

    See my reply above, I messed up quite a few things. I must've been pretty tired.

    As for the decompiled code, I saw a comment on the same issue but it seems I missed the response by the developer.

    I also misread the README where it says :

    Extract the downloaded zip over your GTA 3 directory and run re3. The zip includes the gamefiles and in case of OpenAL the required dlls.

    However, the lack of a license is still very odd.

    This is illegal. It contains assets that it shouldn't and iirc some parts are decompiled code rather than RE code. I wouldn't be surprised if it gets a takedown by Rockstar fairly soon. Edit :...

    Jolla supports certain Sony Xperias through Sailfish X so you can buy one of those and follow their instructions. You'll need to pay for Android support and such though.

    but Jolla never had much interest in getting it to work with anything sold in the US.

    I really wish Sailfish didn't have a proprietary UI, android compatibility and other stuff. I'd totally pay for it if it was entirely open source.

    Of course they can do that however it does mean that I can delete my account. I think that has value in itself.

    On the fediverse, you can defederate users afaik but it's usually servers because the admin of the blocked server doesn't want to moderate/hosts awful people (terfs, nazis, etc.)

    I've recently came to know of such a homeserver in Matrix which seemed to be filled with neo-nazi terrorists, I believe. (I can send in DM the homeserver if you want to see for yourself)

    You can use Youtube without an account though! RSS feeds allow you to still follow the Youtubers you like too.

    And as much as I hate to admit it, I feel like Youtube would have died off by now if not for that aquisition.

    You can still have clients blacklist and servers defederate, just like on the fediverse.

    Well the AGPL makes contribution the only way if you want to make modifications because it considers usage over the network as redistribution.

    Also, you're right, Microsoft and Google have definitely dipped more (although I personally think their contributions are usually for their own benefit) but Amazon does contribute to certain projects as far I can tell. They contribute to OpenStreetMap for example. I guess that fits into "mostly" though.

    I don't like that idea because it implies that other people's commercial usage and contributions are less worthy than the original author and I can't agree with that. I personally think...

    IMO a great license would be "GPL, but if you sell the software itself you also must give us a cut."

    I don't like that idea because it implies that other people's commercial usage and contributions are less worthy than the original author and I can't agree with that.

    I personally think Elasticsearch should've gone with AGPL and so Amazon and other companies would need to publish their own changes and everyone could benefit from it since it's likely these companies would want them upstream at that point.

    To me, it seems like both Amazon and Elasticsearch want to keep their proprietary forks alive for their own benefit.
