imagine if someone scraped parts of the fediverse and *wasn't* kind enough to inform anyone about it

y'all should just stop pretending this hasn't already happened, because someone out there is probably doing this on a daily basis

@lis because telling people on the internet to be nice has always worked, this is also why email spam doesn't exist
@lis I mean, it took me less than an hour to stitch together a 50-lines PHP script to scrape my own account for backup purpose.

Wouldn't surprise me many private companies and intelligence agencies slurp down all data from the APIs

@lis we sorely need things like private groups on fedi so we can post there instead of posting everything publicly

@lis I'm fairly certain every letter of text I've posted to the internet has been analyzed by someone's bot.
