question for instance admins, please boost 

Are there any instance admins in the fediverse who would take significant steps in order to avoid cooperating with a police investigation (anything from declaring a refusal to cooperate to destroying any data that seems like it could be obtained by the police)?

@romainelaprophetesse I'd straight up delete the instance tbh

re: question for instance admins, please boost 

@dragon (Assuming you're an admin) Do you know what you would do if for some reason you are unable to delete the instance, or have something set up that could work without you needing to "be there"?

re: question for instance admins, please boost 

@romainelaprophetesse so right now my instance is hosted on ovh which has a convenient "format server" button, but I don't fully trust them so I'll be migrating the instance to an encrypted server in my home once I manage to get stable housing

If I was unable to delete I'd just warn everyone on the instance via DM cause I personally know the active users to delete their posts and get to work on deleting mine (there's a tool for it that I don't remember the name of), I'd also warn the "offending" user if the cops are knocking on my door about something specific

Do you have ideas on more things I could do?

re: question for instance admins, please boost 

@dragon We're not admins so we may be missing some potential suggestions but may come back to this later if we have better/more ideas

re: question for instance admins, please boost 

@romainelaprophetesse cool thanks :) always good to hear other peoples ideas

know a lawyer that you can call in emergencies before all of this happens

re: question for instance admins, please boost 

@bootie_fringe @dragon That can make an enormous difference, even when it can't prevent certain information from "coming out"

re: question for instance admins, please boost 

@bootie_fringe @romainelaprophetesse oh shit yea good call!!

the admin of cock.li is a major asshole, but he has perfected the fine art of being an asshole to law enforcement.

one of the tools in his arsenal is live streaming calls from authorities to different jurisdictions via mumble in case he is legally banned from commenting on or revealing something

police: “btw, you can't tell anyone” – asshole: “I already did”

re: question for instance admins, please boost 

@dragon @romainelaprophetesse he details his process & reactions to it here: vc.gg/blog/soundcloud-bad-for-

> When the phone call was over, one of the listeners and a friend of mine […] informed me that he had recorded [it] and intended to publish it. Skipper proceeded to publish the call on SoundCloud and share it with cock.li users. Hooray for transparency! That is until recently, when SoundCloud removed the recording from its site by request of the FBI.

@dragon @romainelaprophetesse just in case you do things like that, know that states can & will retaliate:

vc.gg/blog/so-its-been-a-while

> I was detained by Customs and Border Protection (CBP) […] I refused to answer any questions and instead gave them the contact information for my lawyer. They demanded I decrypt my phone […]. When I told them no, they said they would seize all of my electronics and search all of them for "contraband".

warning about admin of cock.li, racism, sexism, fascism, pedophilia 

@dragon @romainelaprophetesse

> the admin of cock.li is a major asshole

just in case anyone doubts this, vincent canfield (VC) advertises email hosting for the following domains:

• nigge.rs
• hitler.rocks
• getbackinthe.kitchen
• rape.lol
• nuke.africa

As far as I know he actually believes in free speech (i.e. purposely being as offensive as possible) with the single exception being that he bans pedophiles from his service.

@dragon @romainelaprophetesse tbh except for the weird pedophile thing (he bans them even if they do not do anything illegal) all of it makes sense under “ppl should be free to say whatever they want” ethics

@dragon @romainelaprophetesse so that belief system plus a lack of any respect for laws means OF COURSE he will offend law enforcement, just to make a point

@dragon @romainelaprophetesse also you still can learn from him how to be an asshole to LE in an effective way

@dragon @romainelaprophetesse I would, however, strongly advise ppl to not ever talk to him, invite him, or piss next to him in a public bathroom

extremly cursed insight 

@dragon @romainelaprophetesse btw I kinda hate to admit it, but even with all the shit VC pulls he is still a better person than most cops are …

Encrypted is the only way to roll

question for instance admins, please boost 

@dragon @romainelaprophetesse at that point they already have the evidence & will fuck you over for not cooperating
