@dushman @coyote @GNUxeava Well, that's what self-hosting and federation is for. The internet can still be great. We just have to leave normies behind. Coincidentally, that alone drastically improves the internet.
But remember: If you're not running it yourself, you're not self-hosting. Cloud services just move the monopoly to a different layer.
@dushman @coyote @GNUxeava In what way?
You can make your own choice to avoid interacting with Big Tech in all your personal dealings.
For communication, you can encourage others to join you. You can't force them, but if you give them a date and tell them you'll be deleting your account then, 🤷
Well, they'll probably just stop talking to you after that date. Nothing of value was lost.

Banking is one of the things I actually still have to open palemoon for, annoyingly. But that's not why I am eternally pissed off at my bank. That's because, after *several* incidents, they still insist on blocking my account over suspicious transactions. Like... Donating to FOSS projects... And, of course, buying crypto. https://getpaidinbitcoin.com.au/ looks handy but their site is shit zzzz
A Mastodon instance for everyone.
