I'd just like to interject for a moment. What you’re referring to as REST, is in fact, HTTP+JSON, or as I’ve recently taken to calling it, REST minus HATEOS. HTTP+JSON is not a REST API unto itself, but rather another component of a fully functioning REST API made useful by the hyperlinks, schema-lessness and generic system components comprising a full REST API as defined by Roy Fielding's thesis.
…I’m seeing people say “just don’t use an iPhone.” It’s not that simple when everyday things like financial apps with two-factor authentication are locked into the two main platforms.
We need legislation to ensure critical services use open standards so you can use your Pinephone to buy lunch in the future.
It’s shocking how easily some folks jump to “just go live in a cave.” No, that’s not an acceptable alternative. We deserve to partake in modern life without sacrificing our human rights…
Imagine a government agency ordered Apple to include hashes of all documents they wanted to track into that kiddie porn database. Suddenly the government knows who's got that antivax meme JPG. Or tax protest DOC. Or an environmental report PDF.
And it's just hashes! Apple won't know what they're tracking, so they can't say "no".
Now tell me you honestly believe no government *ever* will take advantage of this invisible monitoring power.

How Gargron seems to view the average (potential) Mastodon user in the last couple of years:
* too dumb to understand columns, that's an "advanced web interface"
* offended by the word "toot"
* too dumb to understand what a server is
* too dumb to understand local and federated timelines
Mastodon should probably remove CWs too, that's a really confusing feature since Twitter doesn't have it.
After all, the only important metric is how many new users it has.

Oui, vous vous dites que vous l'avez déjà signée il y a quelques mois. Non, ce n'est pas la même. Alors c’était au Sénat. Maintenant c'est à l'Assemblée Nationale. Oui, le parlement français demande la signature de deux (2) pétitions séparées pour s'occuper d'un sujet aussi important.
Donc, re-cliquez et re-signez, svp. https://petitions.assemblee-nationale.fr/initiatives/i-358
