          You can get someone banned on reddit easily if they say certain phrases. I banned a lot of conservative shitheels before they banned me, so I made another account.

          Reddit’s admins are super touchy on violence. If someone says a thing on Reddit that sounds like they want to do violence to a person, even if it’s not a real person or they’re obviously joking, just report threatening violence for a free ban.

            I’m at odds about the whole violence thing. People should be allowed to express how they feel, even if it means that they express the most grotesque way in how they’d like to handle someone they don’t like. One cannot always assume someone will have the means and resources necessary to carry out the perfect murder on someone.

            If we are to glorify the concept of anonymity, why are we so afraid of these kinds of expressions? You won’t know who I am, you won’t know where I am and you won’t know much about me unless I give out details or hints to either of those things. I’ve long stopped making death threats to people online years ago because it sounded absolutely ridiculous, knowing that I’ll never be able to reach the person whom I hate. Much less, even go through with the threat at all.

            That doesn’t mean I shouldn’t be allowed to express how nice it’d be if I held someone’s head down while riding an escalator as the feed of the steps gradually grates the skin off their face.

            I think this is really just a symptom of how social media of all walks on the internet don’t really do enough in the way of security and privacy so that these things are simply just that - expressions.

      Git really should be married with bittorrent for large files. At the moment it’s GFS which requires large central storage, which doesn’t really fit with git. Should be maglinks.

        Or IPFS. The issue in this context is that bittorrent would treat each version as a unique collection of files and you can’t combine seeding of redundant files. IPFS has much better means to handle updates.

            Not sure exactly what you are after, but would stunnel4 do? You can use it to hide SSH with SSL and then use SNI so that a specific website name is SSH and others something else. You can probably do it with Apache or NGINX to if there is real websites too.

            Client wise, just normal ssh, but with a custom config for that host with:

            ProxyCommand openssl s_client -connect %h:%p

            Edit: NGINX : http://nginx.org/en/docs/stream/ngx_stream_ssl_preread_module.html

              umm, I got confused. Let tell you exactly about the use case. so on a site like this " https://sshocean.com/ssh-ssl " I create an account, and I get something like this: where do I insert this payload (what client for windows or Ubuntu)? and how do I insert the desired SNI that I want to be in front of my ISP? I know of http injector with whom the trick works on android, I mean ssh/ssl stunnel.

                In your .ssh/config you want something like:

                Host my-ssh-ssl Hostname us01.ssh0.net User sshocean-p1r4t2br Password myparrot2 Port 443 ProxyCommand ~/.ssh/https-tunnel.sh %h %p

                Then you have a ~/.ssh/https-tunnel.sh something like:

                #!/usr/bin/env bash { printf “GET /HTTP/1.1\r\nHost:$1\r\nUpgrade:websocket\r\n”; cat } | openssl s_client -connect $1:$2 -servername $1

                That last bit, -servername is the SNI bit, if you need it. BUT I think that payload might be for port 2083. I think 443 might be just the OpenSSL connect directly.

    The main Github.com domain was still accessible but raw.githubusercontent.com, where code is typically stored, was blocked.

    Some days, like today, I regret commenting TorrentFreak out of my RSS feed reader.

            Codeberg is a free/nonprofit hosted instance of Forgeo. Forgeo is a fork of Gitea created by Codeberg about a year ago when the governance of Gitea changed suddenly.

            You can selfhost either Forgeo or Gitea.

            There are other hosted instances of forgeo and gitea also available.

            Gitlab is a hosted instance if gitlab.

            You can also self host gitlab.

            I assume there are other hosted instances of gitlab tho i cant think of any off the top of my head.

          I was on GitLab for a time (and still keep the account for following stuff and maybe contributions), but felt it wasn’t as free and community focused as I would have liked to, so I decided to move away and went to Gitea (the hosted instance), shortly after I discovered Codeberg which aligns with my ideals even more, so I went to try it and it stuck.
          The UI isn’t that bad in my opinion and it’s more responsive than GitLab’s, so I appreciate it.
          Not to say that it’s the perfect platform of course, at least not yet, I miss GitLab for the easy actions/CI and deployment of pages, but I’m hoping that Forgejo actions will land soon enough and make things better.

          Note: recently I found out a userstyle that tries to modernize the UI by following a Material You-like interface called Gitea Modern, don’t know if it’s still holding up since it’s been archived

              So correct me if I’m wrong.

              You’re saying, in the case of git, that people using largely text based content over protocols nearly as old as the internet itself, just like the rest of the entire world, should not be allowed to do so?

              Also what’s the RFC for secondary shitting streets? I must have missed that one.

                  Yeah, I like to give some the opportunity to explain themselves so they can, hopefully, hear how wrong they are. Even if it doesn’t work that way it just advertises to everyone their views
