Hi all,

Some researcher have been scraping data from the fediverse, that include our instance, shy of 4000 posts.

They took the data without asking, published a paper and published the data, also without asking.

The data was used in a dubious way in their paper, which is flawed (cauliflowers?!).

A few people have worked hard on an open letter, which I signed

You can read it here:

(Do ask questions, but not before you read the letter please.) meta 

@host It is really nice to see you protecting the users. Thank you very much for your work.
