All links to have been removed from the #honkstore.

@Hyolobrika @tedu Unfortunately, FB followed the link and saw it redirects to the join Mastodon link, so they've blocked it, too...

@lightweight @tedu Well that sucks. I guess we should link to then, and make our own when Facebook eventually blocks that.

@lightweight @Hyolobrika @tedu We're being simultaneously slandered and gaslighted right now as well.

A number of stories are demonizing decentralized sites while simultaneously saying that big tech has too much power and there should be an alternative.


@lightweight @Hyolobrika @tedu I'd like to remind users that all the "fast-growing" alternatives are at the mercy of AWS. Do a dig of your favorite alt-media site and you'd be surprised.

For an example, while this instance has its own nameservers, they reverse to ClouDNS.

@masstransitkrow @lightweight @tedu
@p Do we* depend on AWS or any other big company? What do we depend on?

* CounterFedi runs on CofeSpace
@Hyolobrika @masstransitkrow @lightweight @tedu The only semi-big companies are the registrar and the datacenter; no way around the former, but the latter we might be able to solve at some point. Otherwise, CounterFedi (and most of the other CofeSpace instances) lives on my hardware. There's no Amazon anything anywhere, because of Amazon's policies.
@p @Hyolobrika @tedu @lightweight @masstransitkrow become a multi millionaire just to line icanns pockets and get that registrar status

@travis @Hyolobrika @tedu @lightweight I'm considering it. Although I just want to offer the same services I provide myself and recover up to $5 of the cost per VPS.

I've already bagged three domains.

@Hyolobrika @tedu @lightweight you rely on a provider called SoftLayer, which has four of its own nameservers that redirect back to each other, which makes for a strong, independent SOA.

@masstransitkrow @Hyolobrika @tedu do you have any references to those stories? I'd be interested to see them...

@lightweight @tedu @masstransitkrow What is the story behind this thread? FB blocks links to decentralized networks? App stores block apps that link to them?
