ethics statement

It seems that some splinter groups are not well acquainted with the norms of publishing data on the web.

Publishing your toots/messages on a server without marking them private or requiring authentication and thus making them available to the web is an act of affirmative consent to allowing others to download those toots/messages (usually by viewing them in a browser on your profile page). If you don't want your toots downloaded by remote/unauthenticated users on the web, do not publish them to the web.

If you publish them to the whole web (and your home instance serves them to all comers), do not be surprised or feel violated when people download (and optionally save) them, as your home instance permits them to.

We do not have a right to be forgotten, as we do not have a right to delete legitimately-obtained files from the hard drives of other people.
