zut j'ai pas récupéré le dataset avant qu'ils le retirent, cette histoire de chou-fleur restera pour moi un mystère :blobsad:

the fediverse study, shitpost 

“Specifically, in mastodon.social inappropriate contents span a variety of topics from sexual deviance to drugs, using slag words.”

so are cauliflowers sexual deviance, drugs or a slag word

Pourquoi j'ai des mentions hors contexte ni rien urgh

My sleep schedule is definitely broken

The API they most probably used to collect public toots can be disabled since 3.0 by unchecking “Allow unauthenticated access to public timeline” in your instance's Site settings

re: fediverse “study” 

I love this bit of conclusion too: “users’ reactions to inappropriate contents: how do users react to inappropriate contents? Do they reply with further inappropriate contents or they are more tempered and try to re-establish the original spirit of the code of conduct of the community?”

so if you reply to a CWed toot without a CW, you're more tempered and try to re-establish the original spirit of the code of conduct of the community!

truc recherche fédiverse 

en vrai je sais pas quelle est la loi pour la recherche sur des textes publiés publiquement, mais il me semble qu'y a des exceptions pour permettre le genre de trucs comme les stats qui sont données dans le papier

par contre, publier l'archive non-anonymisée, non lol, aucune chance

fediverse “study” 

the funniest thing is that their definition of “inappropriate content” is toots with a CW or a sensitive flag

and they write people posting such toots may be “people who maliciously publish inappropriate contents”

A large chunk of the Fediverse was scraped; your posts are being “released” 

Matteo Zignani, Christian Quadri, Alessia Galdeman, Sabrina Gaito andGian Paolo Rossi from the University of #Milan scraped all english speaking instances (363) listed on instances.social, wrote a paper about it and are distributing the dataset.

“In this context, we release a dataset gathered from Mastodon, […]“

https://aaai.org/ojs/index.php/ICWSM/article/download/3262/3130/

“These data have been collected by implementing an ad-hoc tool for downloading the public timelines of the servers, namely instances, that form the Mastodon platform, along with the meta-data associated to them.“

“The spider exploits the instance list obtained from the previous step and makes a pool of requests to the instance endpoint 4 which returns the latest toots of the local timeline. Since the time-lines implement a pagination mechanism, the spider extracts the URL for the next request and repeat this procedure till it reaches the end of the timeline.”

“In the terms of service and privacy policy the gathering and the usage of public available data is never explicitly mentioned, consequently our data collec-tion seems to be complaint with the policy of the instance.“

Wrong.

La psychophobie, la putophobie, la misogynie, les LGBTIphobies, le racisme etc etc les plus difficiles à vivre proviennent des bords communistes et anarchistes.
Car on s'attend quand-même à ce que nos camarades soient un minimum conscient-es de la violence de ces choses, et d'à quel point il est impossible pour les victimes concernées par ces violences d'envisager la lutte et la vie avec ces gens comme camarades. À quel point il est impossible d'envisager le monde sans classe et sans oppression, avec de telles violences émanant de nos camarades.

This is a small personal instance running on a couple small ARM servers at home.
