EN : Dear students. This is not a funny announcement.
Italian researchers have scraped public toots from over 300 instances, to analyze them. Ours included. The toots are allegedly hosted and accessibles on their server, for research purpose.
Needless to say i'm angry. It's hard to take in the scale of this violation. Just because a content is accessible on the Web, doesn't mean one can use it without proper authorization... Anyway.
I have boosted the original toots with all the information, and the research paper birthed from this.
I'll keep you updated if legal action is taken.
FR : Ceci est une instance queer, qui vise à être aussi confortable et safe que possible. Nouvelleaux élèves bienvenu'es !
