Poor password security at the British branch of Mensa?
The website of Mensa - the club for people who have scored highly in an IQ test but who feel their social lives would be improved by hanging out with other people who chose to join a club after scoring highly in an IQ test - is said to have suffered a cyber attack.
>Google have suspended Element in the Play Store without notifying us; we’re reaching out to find out what’s going on. Apologies for the inconvenience; in the interim there’s https://f-droid.org/en/packages/im.vector.app/ but it’s a few versions behind. We’ll post updates here.
>As of 11:44 UTC we’ve submitted a detailed appeal to reiterate that Element is a generic chat app for connecting to the global Matrix communication network, just as Chrome is a generic web browser for connecting to the Web - and just as Google does not control the content on the Web, Element does not control the content on Matrix. https://element.io/blog/element-on-google-play-store/
Never forget that Google and all of its employees are bullies.
@jeder Google understands federation and they knew exactly what they were doing when they banned Element.
I've asked this a few times: Doesn't anti-trust laws apply if you run an app store and you offer your own apps in that store and you ban competing apps for reasons that don't seem to apply to your own apps?
You can use Google Chrome to access Matrix servers, just like you can use it to access Fediverse sites. It's not like you actually need to use the Element app for anything..
I really can not help my 7yo with his "unscramble the words" homework.

If you crosspost from twitter to mastodon I would really appreciate it if you marked your account as a bot (see https://superuser.com/a/1439495 for explanation of the effect).
If it's a dual purpose account (i.e. crossposting AND direct posting), then I would appreciate it if you created a separate account for the twitter crossposting and marked that as a bot account.
Crossposted tweets appear as a mess of broken links, missing threads, and the account is often unresponsive to replies.

I just found @tony 's guide on how to give feedback:
Seems pretty accurate.
Wife: That’s the First Lady to be the Vice President.
Daughter: Wow, really?
Wife: Yes, and you will probably see a lady as President in your lifetime.
Daughter: Can I run for it?
Thanks @VP @KamalaHarris for that moment. #Inauguration2021
@dcid Every coin has two faces. Nobody can promote real privacy on apps and services without open the gate to people who think different and, in the worst scenario, people who use this privacy to act badly.
How can we not fall into contradictions in this kind of cases? It's a really difficult matter.
