[fr] Deuxièmement, nous avons le plaisir de vous annoncer que nous avons levé la suspension contre aleph.land. L’instance avait été à l’origine suspendue par witches.town car elle tolérait le harcèlement.
Après examen, on dirait que la situation a évoluée.

[en] Next, we have the pleasure to announce that we lifted the suspension against aleph.land. It was suspended by witches.town in the first place for tolerating harassment.

— This mode is not completely backward compatible with older versions of Mastodon and may negatively impact communications with other instances.

# Activate secure mode (available since version 3 of mastodon)

Secure mode involves disabling non-authenticated access to public timelines as explained above.

—  It has the advantage of forcing authentication during exchanges between instances: in Mastodon’s default operation any instance (even if blocked by our instance) can retrieve public messages (even if our instance no longer sends them to the blocked instances).

— An account’s public posts can still be collected via public profiles.
— Tools using public timelines without an account will no longer work with Eldritch Café (some of the projects around the instance will be impacted but not all will be cancelled).

# Disable non-authenticated access to public timelines

— Public timelines (local, global, hashtags) on Eldritch Café will no longer be accessible without a validated account
— Public timelines can still be collected after creating an account or via any instance that has federated our messages and that has not itself disabled non-authenticated access to public timelines.

— This is not necessarily respected.
— Will have the effect of no longer showing public pages in common search engines.
— Involves ignoring the choice within the user settings.

# Advertise to refuse indexing of public pages via our robots.txt

Since the publication of the research paper we have changed the default behaviour and public profiles are announced as non-indexable (via meta tags) unless the user has explicitly requested that they be indexed. We could take a step further and refuse indexing of the entire website by using a robots.txt file.

In order to mitigate this type of data collection, we can implement several solutions.

It should be noted that regardless of the solutions used, your public messages will always be accessible[1]. If you don’t want a message to be collected, we advise you to at least set its visibility to “followers-only” or “direct”.

Note [1]: With the exception of the whitelist mode (available since version 3 of mastodon), but it is not planned to use it immediately because of the way it works.
