I'm regrettably no longer able to offer my RSS to ActivityPub converter to the general public. This is because:

- it's wildly popular and my hosting costs keep going up for it
- it's been getting used for more and more purposes I'm uncomfortable with, which I've tried to mitigate but new ones keep popping up

I'll be releasing a new version soon that will let admins allow only people with permissions (either a user/password or a Mastodon account) to create new feeds.

Still looking for coders -- especially coders of marginalized groups -- to help us build an alternative to that actively works to cast out all bigotry instead of drawing the line at blatant promotion.

Currently, we're looking for people that are able to code for the Android app, though later, we'll be looking for people capable of coding for a repo and web server, as well as a build server even later on.

If you're willing and able to contribute, hit us up in DMs. We could use the help.

It takes systemic methods to fight the systemic oppression of marginalized groups, so our moderation policies plan to reflect that.

Not only will we be moderating the apps, but we'll encourage the app developers themselves to moderate as well.

Likewise, we'll also encourage the end users to be more active in this role.

We wanna build a community for everyone that believes in a diverse coexistence and actively enforces it by working together to exclude bigotry and hatred.

Thinking about how the most likely answer as to why other social media sites don't have CWs is because overpaid Harvard business majors think it drives down engagement and ad clicks or whatever

It isn't a coincidence that you never see black men on dev teams.
