THE APPLICATION FORM FOR SHRIKE CLUB HAS BEEN CLOSED BECAUSE I KEPT GETTING EMAILS FROM STRANGERS.

IF YOU WOULD LIKE AN INVITE LINK FOR YOUR SMALL GROUP LET ME KNOW.

IF YOU DON'T KNOW HOW TO GET IN TOUCH WITH ME YOU DON'T KNOW ME WELL ENOUGH TO MAKE A SHRIKE.CLUB ACCOUNT. THANK YOU FOR YOUR UNDERSTANDING

BANNED NOAGENDASOCIAL.COM FOR HARBORING NAZIS. NO APPEAL

HEY @Gargron THIS REPRESENTS A SACRIFICE OF A CLEAR AND CONSISTENT USER EXPERIENCE IN FAVOR OF PROMOTING THE MOST ENGAGEMENT AT ALL COSTS. BLOCK SHOULD MEAN BLOCK. ANYWAY I'M GOING TO GO EAT A BUG

PLEASE NOTE THAT EVEN WITH SECURE MODE ON, INFORMATION IN 🔓 UNLOCKED POSTS AND USER PROFILES REMAINS PUBLICLY POSTED TO HTML FILES ON THE INTERNET, AS IT ALWAYS HAS. ANY INFORMATION ON YOUR USER PROFILE OR IN 🔓 UNLOCKED AND REBLOGGABLE POSTS IS TRIVIALLY EASY TO ACCESS BY ANYONE. THIS CHANGE ONLY IMPACTS TIMELINE BEHAVIOR FOR BLOCKED OR SUSPENDED USERS.

THIS FEATURE BEING OFF LED TO ALREADY PUBLICLY AVAILABLE INFORMATION BEING CACHED AND FEDERATED TO USERS THAT SHOULD NOT HAVE RECEIVED IT IN THEIR TIMELINES (I.E. BLOCKED OR SUSPENDED USERS).

THIS MEANS THAT USERS WHO ARE BLOCKED BY SHRIKE CLUB USERS OR SUSPENDED BY THE INSTANCE WOULD STILL SEE PUBLIC 🔓 **UNLOCKED** 🔓 POSTS ON THEIR TIMELINE THAT WERE REBLOGGED ONTO IT BY USERS NOT BLOCKED BY THE POSTER.

NOTABLY, THIS DOES NOT REPRESENT A COMPROMISE OF POSTS ON 🔏 LOCKED OR ✉️ DIRECT MESSAGES.

I HAVE ENABLED SECURE MODE ON SHRIKE.CLUB. CERTAIN FEATURES, SUCH AS THREADS WITH USERS ON OTHER INSTANCES, MAY BECOME LESS FUNCTIONAL.

I'LL GO OVER A FEW IMPLICATIONS OF THIS CHANGE AND WHY THIS DEFAULTING TO "OFF," AND BURYING THIS OPTION IN THE SUPPLEMENTAL DOCUMENTATION, REPRESENTS A SIGNIFICANT THREAT TO USER SAFETY ON THE FEDIVERSE AND MAKES THE SECURITY FEATURES IN MASTODON AS SHIPPED ACTIVELY MISLEADING.

"THERE SHOULD BE NO FURTHER DOWNTIME"

LOL WHOOPS SORRY
