I notice that for all the benefits of open social coversation, I've built a habit of *not* sharing thoughts because I feel so necessarily defensive and cautious about doing it on the surveillance capitalist platforms.

It will take some effort to figure out the appropriate comfort level for posting here.


@wolftune Do you mean self-censorship?

The "wide" social network is public.

Protection on comes from the fact that your server collects only an email and your IPs. And other servers and every user know only your nickname.

@tuxicoman Yes, I was meaning self-censorship. And I'm identifying myself here anyway (though I know that's not required, thankfully).

I won't do zero self-censorship, but here I can at least not feel that I'm feeding the ad algorithms or encouraging others to use those systems.
