The Chrome team is already behaving as if they own the web, railroading the process for a UI term I hadn't even heard of until an hour ago.
So Gab has decided that their own code that they spent $5M of investor money developing is so unsalvageably bad that they're going to use Mastodon's code instead, with the added bonus of leeching off of our apps (with Gab apps being banned from app stores)
This is an early warning to fellow admins to be vigilant and domain-block them on sight, when/if they appear (unconfirmed whether they intend to federate), and to app devs to consider if blocking Gab's domains from their app is necessary.
GDPR minutiae and application
Where an identifiable natural person "is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person"
Additionally Art 89 says "Those safeguards shall ensure that technical and organisational measures are in place in particular in order to ensure respect for the principle of data minimisation".
@DashEquals has already established "There's no process for being part of ArchiveTeam" so no organisational measures there.
They also said "Everything that archiveteam does is public" so there are no technical measures either.
@kaniini GDPR, if you're in the EU/EEA, would also help here.
ukpol, results of prominent fascist candidate, hilarious
@sophia He ran away in a sulk hours and hours before the result was announced when it was obvious he had lost big. 😂
But still, hearing that laughter on the news was epic.
