Do admins/moderators of instances have the ability, like FB and others, to make someone's post invisible, so that it looks to the person posting it has been posted, but to others, or to only a select few, it is visible?

That power is needed to be held accountable! Individuals should never have that power over others. People should know they are being blocked!

It really is the pits of ethics to allow people to make others think they are being ignored by their peers and contemporaries, and hence even possibly being manipulated as such as well. Manipulated by others into thinking you are being ignored, unpopular, would hence be a kind of curation of alienation which can be psychologically used to goad people, especially if such a can be turned on and off, according to the particular post.

Mastodon social, i create an account, set a profile, leave one post expressing why i am there, nothing bad, simply sincere, log out, cant log back in, dont get confirmation link sent to email to change password, basically admin/mod disabled my log in. They have that power.

Send a direct message to 'admin' (right word- i'm new to this) of that instance. No reply.

Do the centralized korps infiltrate the decentralized, with their censoring goading us to their political agenda, destruction of regulative democracy where certain alt-lefts, alt-centre-rights, alt-centre-lefts and alt-centres are allowed which don't challenge their censoring techniques of selective visibility and undemocratic power?

Hope i am wrong.

This is not only in Buddhism, but also in the oldest roots of the oldest 'religion', Veda, India. All religions have a consumption of a sacramental substance, hence psychedelic substances and the visions therefrom are at the foundations of all religions, which changes our understanding of them.

As such the fundamentalist interpretations of religion are wrong, as are the criticism of 'religion' too (even modern scholars of religious studies claim its wrong to hoist the label 'religion' on those eastern ways of life), by those who think it was an invention to control the people. It also means the war against drugs wrong too, morally.

There is a whole field of stuff..thanks to the psychedelic revolution in consciousness of the 60s hippies and latter day beats.synergeticpress.com/secret-dru

Does anyone know of any instances where people post about esoteric, psychedelic, occult, religion, spirituality, new-age, hippies, youth cultures along those lines?

Hey so um, I just made an account on here and i'm really confused about all of this, I originally made an account on mastodon.online but I guess I can one site per account. I mean ik that I can follow other people from other sites, it's just I'm not sure how the whole instance thing works. Sorry for all the ramblings i'm just trying to get used to all of this

I think the software I release will have to be something that can benefit people's lives, even if only a little. Just something fun that lets people do creative things!

Technology should be more magical. The biggest thing stopping us is our inability to think past outdated metaphors!

Surveillance capitalism is a virus I don't want to work in this fucking industry anymore I can't do this to people

The main newspaper against Brexit had no coverage on the Mueller report when it came out, instead it focused on the USA's Democrats election debates at the time. Another is the paper never covered anything to do with the UKs Data protection Act and GDPR when they came into force. It also never covered the Digital Media and Sports Committee investigation into fake news, disinfo.

The Lib Dems against Brexit. They agreed to having a general election, when the evidence was clear that the time was not good and Brexiteer Tories would win.

None of the UK opposition to Brexit opposition talked about in much detail about Cambridge Analytica. The opposition to Brexit never insisted revocation of Article 50 to stop Brexit (they could have done) until the last minute. Is it any wonder..?

Every step of the way my country's politicians (UK) has enabled the fascists. they cant even call them fascists, they use every other name, populist, far-right, xenophobes, nationalists but hardly ever using the word fascist and they evade the data issues regarding the rise of the fash, instead focusing on economy, and individual side effects, single issues, reacting against the fash as they destroy democracy dismantle the NHS and wreck the economy and lives on an issue by issue basis. I live in a stupid country where even the left don't seem able to fight their way out of a wet fascist paper bag!

In the UK, the Labour Party's National Policy Forum has no separate section concerning digital, data, tech, instead it spreads out such over the various separate policy sections. Eg, there may be policy making debate and discussion on digital in the Health Care section, or parts in Business section, or Environment but there is no separate digital/data/tech policy section. And they are fond of using Zoom, Facebook and Twitter for tech digital data policy debates as well as others. Is this good?

What is the position of activists against the altReich on platforms which are centralised capitalist led and possibly altReich themselves? Are they naive, shooting themselves in the foot, acting as 'useful idiots' gathering the data of all who oppose what they claim to oppose? Is it wise to expose and whistleblow on such platforms and is it considerate of those who will like and comment and agree especially when such don't have the protections they themselves have?

My question is are the capitalist social media corps with their centralized models having their systems gamed by the altReich or are they themselves using the altReich for their own nefarious political anti-regulatory purposes or are actually altReich themselves? Are the conspiracy theorists (mainly fascist propagandists) gaming their 'neutral' systems or are the Tech-corps actually consciously promoting them?

New to Mastodon. Yesterday I opened 1st account on the MastodonSocial. I logged out. Found i couldn't log back in, my password wasn't accepted. Tried a few times. Tried to change password, get a confirmation link sent to email, nothing.. Hoping it doesn't happen here when i log out and try to get back in. Its why i am writing this, just in case I don't come back because i cant.

If so, it would seem to me that centralized social media corps are censoring and making me invisible for being against the altReich (work that out) but here more skullduggery! Unless, of course, there's another reason why one is unable to get back in by password, or even change it twice (if it happens with this account that is).

Would like to know why?

We shall see. If not here tomorrow will be the 2nd time.

Apple crushes one-man repair shop in Norway’s Supreme Court. This is terrible, we can't allow huge companies to block third parties from repairing their devices! All it does is waste resources, patronize consumers and stifle competition. repair.eu/news/apple-crushes-o #right2repair

I like the music of San Francisco, what is called 'acid rock'. I dislike Google, dislike centralized tech corporations, their model, their privacy intrusion. I am checking Peer Tube as an alternative to You Tube (Google) and seeing what San Fran stuff is to be fund there. Unfortunately its limited, but still there are at least a few Grateful Dead tunes there. A policy of mine, look first on Peer Tube, if not there Vimeo, not there then You Tube as a last resort. Sensible? peer.tube/videos/watch/5da2530

There was a time on FB where i would have lots of interaction from many friends, encouraged to connect, then one day, it was as if i became invisible overnight, only visible to the same few, never anyone new. I found out FB has a patent on what is called a 'twit bit'. A moderation technique to make one invisible to others, so one thinks one is posting, sees one own posts posted, but to others are invisible, or visible to a select few and not others. It amounts to an ability to covertly tweak one's visibility. If one contemplates that kind of asymmetric power of the centralized tech corps and their ability to tweak one's visibility and our own inability to find out just how they do this, one loses faith, like myself, Its why I am here.

I created an account through Mastodon social. I sorted my profile, then logged out last night. I went to log in. My password wasn't accepted when typing in exact various times. So I opted for changing password and no confirmation email turned up in my email at all, so I couldn't change even my password. Basically shut out of that account, just after opening it. Has anyone else experienced this and why does this happen?
