it is weird (not weird? not funny? just... something) how the Khashoggi torture and execution recordings are referred to as "tapes" when they are... probably not on tape?
(altho thinking about it perhaps analogue/digital tape might be the most secure method of storing such information these days)
@Danhon the recordings wouldn’t be on record either :)
hang on a second the etymology of record/recording totally backs me up here so nyah :) @geordie
@Danhon they always refer to tapes in the media, in the same way that my grandmother would call console games "tapes"
@Danhon “films” also
that's why i go with the medium-agnostic term "movie" @migurski
@Danhon Going to try to make “bytestream” happen for all media experiences
real hipsters use octets @migurski
@Danhon I like when emails (and posts on Facebook's internal FB instance) are referred to as memos.
Recently, the handling of online defamation has become a hot topic on many mass media as well as social media channels.

However, under the current state of Japan, we will not be able to handle the increase of such administrative burdens and will have trouble dealing with it appropriately. Thus, we have decided to stop providing our service on mstdn.jp and mastodon.cloud starting June 30, 2020. We are very sorry for the inconvenience and appreciate your understanding on the matter.
