There seems to be an issue with Mastodon.social but don't draw any conclusions yet..

Remember, the Fediverse is mainly hosted by people like you and me. We are not big tech companies with millions or billions of dollars to keep up the infrastructe, stuff might break every once in a while and theirfor we simple ask a little patience ❤️

Give Eugen some time to fix the issues, I am sure this is his number 1 prio.

Maybe if enough people are a PITA about this to them, they'll finally do something about it.

Weinig dingen tonen zo duidelijk aan hoe slecht ons wereldwijde stelsel van 'intellectuele eigendom' in elkaar zit als het feit dat patenten nog steeds een rem zetten op de productie van levensreddende vaccins. #TRIPSwaiver #patenten

Het kostte vier maanden en duizenden euro's om één overduidelijk domme uploadblokkade ongedaan te maken: stel je voor hoe erg het binnenkort zal zijn met het algehele gebruik van filters als gevolg van de EU-auteursrechtrichtlijn. #uploadfilters
