@glynmoody This of course ignores a multitude of health concerns, such as osteoporosis. Bad edgy article.

It's also a bit of a tasteless choice considering they only published this the other day.

"The Japanese government is pushing ahead with a plan to make #Japan’s publicly funded research output free to read. This month, the science ministry will assign funding to universities to build the infrastructure needed to make research papers free to read on a national scale. The move follows the ministry’s announcement in February that researchers who receive government funding will be required to make their papers freely available to read on the institutional repositories from January 2025."

On a post tbat is notjing more than a single link to a wikipedia page was enough for facebook tomperminately flag me as a child porn offender. Even upon review they upheld it!

@freemo I'm guessing the moderator has a document in-front of them telling them to look for pubic hair and they're interpreting it very literally.

Meanwhile at FBI HQ:

"We just received a tip about a child porn ring on Faceboo- Damn it, it's a Wikipedia link again!"

Europol issues a press release (after a meeting in the U.K. of all places, which is not a member of the E.U.) voicing their opposition to end-to-end encryption.

It's not really anything new though, they've always been big fans of mass surveillance with nothing in the way of safeguards.

As you might expect, they walk their parade of terribles to try to intimidate people, and even manage to betray the fact that their intention is to engage in very dubious accuracy profiling. Take note of that.

Sex offender banned from using #AI tools in landmark UK case - https://www.theguardian.com/technology/2024/apr/21/sex-offender-banned-from-using-ai-tools-in-landmark-uk-case "The decision could set a precedent for future monitoring of people convicted of indecent image offences"

@glynmoody Typically, the argument brought up for Japan is that censorship violates Article 19 / 21 of the Constitution (it contains a right to free expression).

However, neither the law or this right is limitless. For instance, if someone deliberately makes non-consensual porn of someone (ahem, not an imaginary character), that would be prohibited conduct, from what I've seen. There's more I could say but I'll keep it short for conciseness.

If they're doing that, maybe it's a Western spammer, as someone from there who I know would put it. It's also a bit suspicious, the Brits are hard to trust, they have a bad track record. It is also quite a dubious intervention. Of course, it's not implausible the authorities there tipped the Brits off about it.

#YouTube videos being so often Sponsored is I'm sure good for the creators, but also it's kind of awful.

@freemo The tickers on the posts have vanished.

For instance, under the username on a post, there might have been a yellow bar containing a picture of a green concoction in a test tube next to the name qoto.org

@freemo Yes. The only error I can see is a CSP error for "MathJax", although I presume that is for something else.

@freemo I scrolled through a couple of feeds (containing both local and non-local posts) and I can't find a single one.

I haven't changed themes lately.
