I guess the more responsible way to handle this would be to block the "hidden" content completely when the API is no longer supported. Don't you think so?
I used to use an external #reCAPTCHA link in my personal website to show my email address to human visitors but hide it from #spam #bots. Now I just realized that #Google has upgraded reCAPTCHA API and no longer supports this "mail hide" functionality.
Worst of all? My email address has been visible on the public Internet for several weeks, without me having any clue that this has happened.

Love that my favorite Android Masto app, #Tusky, is open source. Love the fact that #Pinafore and #Halcyon exist as alternative web UIs. Love that #Pleroma is coming along well as an alternative #ActivityPub server. Love that the sex worker community on #Switter is actively working on building open source tech that works for their use case. Love to see instances like #OpenSocialAfrica and vis.social.
Y'all inspire me that this open source/free software thing may actually work out in the end. :)
