I'm going to switch to digest mode for the SWICG mailing list. Despite's Evan earnest (and successful) attempts to move it back into a functional state, there are other folks (mainly one, Melvin) on there that have been passively pulling in the kind of ideas and technology that run counter to a safe Web. Because they also have a louder voice (and the passive backing of a [abuse-enabling built system, IMO]), it's not worth engaging it anymore.

It shouldn't also be lost on anyone that I've slowly moved away from open social Web things in recent years as I've gotten more involved in activism (and I do plan to return to this space because it is vital to the health of the Web) but I'll be doing it from afar.

That "system" is Nostr. And frankly, I do not trust anything Jack Dorsey explicitly endorses. That man has passively caused more harm to people and the Web than most people are willing to admit (especially because he still has the ears of the celebrity class). And because of the inability to break away from these abusive systems, we're going to find new ones pop up with more of these things embedded in them, rinse the history of the past mistakes and deepen the grooves of the damages from before.
