Algorithms should not decide who spends time in a California jail. But that’s exactly what will happen under a new law slated to take effect in October 2019. eff.org/deeplinks/2018/11/if-p

@finn I hear you. And that's a shame.

I never thought about it before, but at the moment I don't recall anyone *ever* citing the source for their pix on the fediverse. Maybe folks do and I don't notice it because I don't care, but I kinda think it's seldom done.

Especially bad because she only joined in the first place after I begged her to for weeks.

@finn honestly, the attitude that absolutely everything has to be cited or OC is profoundly annoying.

Some people like to point at infamous Twitter accounts (Archillect) that just repost content found from somewhere else, as if it were a terrible crime, and the only way to have sanctity is to either be absolutely original or be exhaustive in one's references.

I thought the sentiment of the Web was that copying isn't theft?

Tried to get my partner into Mastodon, but the cybre.space admins threatened to delete most of her posts because she didn't cite the original author of the random memes that were obviously impossible to determine the original source of. Pretty disappointed in the way it was handled TBH. More motivated than ever to start my own server.

"Arguably folks should be more comfortable with #Facebook now given all the scrutiny they have gone through in terms of their recent missteps because everyone is watching everything they have done," he said. "Their information is probably more secure than it was in the past."
