@jjg @nolan I wanted to make the exact same comment, twitter rage mobs are a thing but this thing went a lot wider than twitter with good reason and this whole article is doing some “both sides” reasoning, in which two sides only exist if you buy in to the racist logic of these hitler youth kids. A native american person isn’t a liberal and by definition the anti-thesis of an immigrant.
it's time for my favourite game, Windows or Capitalism, where we try to guess whether a statement applies to windows or capitalism
- it's obnoxiously expensive for no reason
- corporate monopolies allow the big companies to stamp out alternatives and present themselves as the only option, driving up prices to ridiculous levels
- you are constantly pressured to spend money. in fact, if you don't have money, you can't participate at all
- advertisements are a fundamental element of the system
- most people who have souls despise it, but remain complacent because "what are the alternatives? this is the way things are"
- the mere mention of the names of alternatives disgusts many people
- the people in charge don't give a shit about you
trick question!! all of these statements apply to windows AND capitalism!!!!!

User: Capitalism must fall sooner rather than later, or else it will take our planet with it. We must dispose of the Capitalist pigs now. No cops, no borders, no landlords. The time for revolution is coming. This vegan curry I just made is delicious.
This town needs an #infoshop
@jjg I'm a big fan of Mailman, though it's more of an email discussion list handler than a newsletter engine. For newsletters, there's always /etc/aliases.
@jjg How is the deliverability from your own mail server, and how big is the list you're going to be sending to? Unless it's in the multi-hundreds, or, probably, thousands, I don't think you're going to hit any tripwires that will make your deliverability worse than it is. I'd probably set up something like GNU Mailman just so that people have proper unsubscribe functionality (and maybe archives), but not do anything special on the mail end.
Considering doing an email newsletter to stay in touch with people who I can’t drag away from Facebook but who still want updates on various projects.
The web suggests I use “tinyletter.com” which looks cool but is Mailchimp, and they are not exactly respectful of privacy.
Any suggestions for a #FOSS, self-hosted alternative? I run my own mail server so maybe a simple distribution list or the like?
I don’t need metrics/etc., just deliverability :)
I guess I’m up to ten, now. (“Pwned on 10 breached sites and found 3 pastes”)
Data truly is liability. Nobody can protect your data forever. Sad but true.
