PSA: DMs on social media sites are not truely PMs. This is why we have a separate tool for private messaging from yarn. Always remember, if you don’t own the infra (or the parts at the ends of e2e encryption) you don’t own the data. and the true owners can view it any way they want!
@tkanos user in question had posted information about someones employment in what appeared to be a threat to contact their boss. Maybe it was in jest.. but we felt it was a form of doxing that we do not wish to see within our community. Yarn.Social is first and foremost a town square of ideas and should be viewed as a safe place for all.

👋 Hey y’all Yarn.social and Twtxt users out there 🙇♂️ One of our sister projects we recently begun work on a few months ago this year (2022) is called Salty IM – Some of you may have heard of it, seen it, even played with it. If you haven’t do check it out! 🙏
I would appreciate any feedback, comments, criticisms as I would like to submit this before the Deadline of 1st Oct 2022. I an hopeful we can get a small funding amount to primarily build a great Mobile App experience for Salty Chat (the reference client) and place a number of (free) brokers around the globe for folks to use if they so wish 👌
There you go, @tkanos: https://git.isobeef.org/lyse/tt/-/tree/master/useragent Just link or fork it whereever you guys want.
@prologic You may already do all this stuff, but here’s my 2 cents.
One thing you can do is a use a site like https://myip.ms/browse/blacklist/Blacklist_IP_Blacklist_IP_Addresses_Live_Database_Real-time to download a list of blacllisted IP address in a format suitable for whichever firewall you’re using. Then you can hard ban those IPs.
Another thing you can use is install
fail2ban and set up rules appropriate to
yarnd. I’m not familiar enough to say what those should be, but blocking http POST floods is a good idea. You can also manually add IP addresses to
fail2ban jails, or semi-automate that where you read the IPs you want to ban from a list that you update regularly.
Finally, you could use something like akismet to automatically detect spam posts and block ones that fail their test. I’m not sure if you’re able to self host if you’re dependent on a call to their servers. Maybe there’s something similar that you could host locally if nto.
Q: if most ransomware attacks originate from Email phishing or SMS smishing scams, why then do we continue to use such insecure and unverifiable forms of communication?! 🤔

Scientists Claim They’ve Reversed Aging in Mice
“In molecular biologist David Sinclair’s lab at Harvard Medical School, old mice are growing young again,” reports CNN:
Using proteins that can turn an adult cell into a stem cell, Sinclair and his team have reset aging cells in mice to earlier versions of themselves. In his team’s first breakthrough, published in late 2020, old mice with poor eyesight and damaged retinas coul … ⌘ Read more
