THE INTERNET IN 2021:
@prophet_goddess to be entirely fair to the ARPA here this KIND OF is their fault if it is, in fact, BGP again

@darius @prophet_goddess fair enough! those guys, then!
Hometown is adapted from Mastodon, a decentralized social network with no ads, no corporate surveillance, and ethical design.
