Big shame about Yahoo Groups, but more evidence that data isn’t safe in the hands of companies who value profit over anything else. Email mailing lists are great, can be self-hosted, but more importantly the data stays on your devices. The old ways are still the best.
@jamie why do you think we have Mastodon?
@yukiame I don’t think the Fediverse is immune to this. There have been lots of instances that have closed down taking data with them, sometimes with no notice at all.
@jamie can't happen with us we are hevily integrated with the Hoster/Podcaster
@jamie part of why I founded dobbs.town is as an escape saucer for when the other main forum for the Church of the SubGenius is deleted by the company that hosts it. I am proud to say that dobbs.town is SubGenius owned and operated.
One day I’ll write something interesting here. That day is not today.
