Hey everyone! Mark your media as sensitive through Preferences. Apparently due to the fact that instances link together, our NSFW content has been showing up in other areas that could expose minors or people who do not want to view it, to our content.
RT @Your_MarissaB@twitter.com: PSA: due to clients switching to Protonmail, request their prior e-mail as part of screening.
This is the perfect storm for blacklisted clients to start falling through the cracks.
Via @LiaraRoux WARNING: If you are directed to "sextradesurvivorresources . com", know that this is NOT a sex worker / peer led resource.
It was created by abolitionist groups to PR control in the wake of their disastrous legislation. They deny existence of consensual sex work. BEWARE.
VERY EARLY draft of technical products safe/secure for sex workers to use (AT THIS MOMENT) is up here now, please leave lots of detailed comments and we'll make it as readable as possible as we have time.
#SurvivorsAgainstSesta released a page with links to safety tips including online screening but, importantly, tips for working offline including street based work
We've listed over 130 companies or distinct products (like Skype) that discriminate against or outright ban sex workers (or adult products, even contraceptives) OR have been closed following SESTA.
With the addition of contextual essays and commentary, the document is now 94 pages long.
Who benefits when sex is removed from the internet?
ATT SW's: Now it is more important than ever before, PARTICULARLY in this industry, to hold onto your right to privacy and be informed. This guide to becoming as anonymous as possible online will take you literally 10 minutes to complete but it is worth it. Even if you are to just read how your data is used...
PLS BOOST - this will help people looking for more anonymous ways of working on the web. 💕💕
Mastodon is great but it's not the right tool for your most secret of secret messages.
@noelle added some important info to her excellent Introduction to Mastodon: https://gist.github.com/joyeusenoelle/74f6e6c0f349651349a0df9ae4582969#how-private-is-private
Short version: Private messages are not encrypted or secure.
If you want secure private messaging that even the admins can't read, Signal is the best option. (https://www.signal.org/)
Always remember there is no perfect security. It's all about tradeoffs.
