NPM’s ceo was successfully trolled by *hand puppets*.
I’ll stop laughing about this some day, I swear.
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@linuxrocks.online 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.
Jesus. Just because something is available "publicly" doesn't mean it isn't personal data and that it doesn't need protecting.
BIG , indeed.
Also not that I did not ask if they had discussed the GDPR, I asked if they had discussed data protection. Like, at all.
Okay then. Since you said "we", does that mean you are part of the ArchiveTeam?
And if so, have they ever discussed data protection with you?
Then I suggest you read Article 4(1) and (2) of the GDPR and re-think what you just said.
Holy shit you're processing personal data and you don't know what that means?
Go read Article 6 of the General Data Protection Regulation.
@DashEquals@linuxrocks.online @kaniini What is the legal basis under which you are processing the personal data?
@kaniini GDPR, if you're in the EU/EEA, would also help here.
