if you need any tips or whatever hit me up, but even juts installing them without changing anything gives you a lot of passive protection from common attacks.

screenshotting racists so they cant cover their tracks isnt “twitter behavior”

And I'm floating in a most purrculiar way...and the stars look very different today

management will not approve and frankly they can fuck off. budget time for an /actual manual/

and people talk a lot of shit about how "open source software isn't user friendly" and like... there _are_ real problems with the way people (don't) talk about UX in foss projects

but "the interface is not instantly familiar to me" is not that problem because that's not a goal you can ever reach for more than a tiny tiny group of people
