You can safely ignore this post. I have to insert some (invisible) code into this page to prove I own the website, and verify my account with a social media service called Mastodon.
This is one of the housekeeping tasks I need to perform before starting to post again.
Nothing going on here – please move along 🙂
Oh… you’re still there.
OK… read on.
In my opinion, Twitter is bombing after Elon Musk ill-advisedly bought it out – and becoming a safe haven for conspiracy theorists and neo-fascists. I’ve used Twitter to publicise my posts for a long time, but I’m becoming increasingly unhappy to be associated with the thing.
Lots of people are switching to Mastodon. This is similar to Twitter in operation. However, it is not owned by a corporation but operates as a. network of privately operated servers, each with their own rules, which share content between them. It’s not owned by a greedy, billionaire who might break it at a whim, and greedy billionaires can’t buy it out, either.
The server I’ve chosen to join is operated by the Belgian ‘Pirate Party‘ – a real political party which, I hope, will mock Scientology mercilessly if they demand I be banned or that their server takes my content down (thank you BPP – I will behave 🙂
If you are on the service yourself, please search for @scicrit (and leave a comment on this page if something is not working properly)
