#WritingExchange question 

Should we ask the Internet Archive not to archive Writing.Exchange toots, as mentioned here?

#WritingExchange question 

@matt just because Internet Archive might respect "do not archive" it doesnt mean anyone else will.

#WritingExchange question 

@matt Oh, that's a really tough call. On the one hand, culture is happening and being lost, and that sucks for the future. On the other hand, it could be argued that part of that culture is the ephemerality of it, and to irrevokably bind people to the things they said in a pseudonymous flash for all of time is possibly doing a very real disservice to every individual and to future culture as a whole.

Hmmmm.

@matt The link leads to a "The page you are looking for isn't here," message.
guess someone should've archived it!!
No but seriously I don't actually care either way but I would probably err on the side of asking to not. As there seems to be the option for obtaining an archive of your own toots there isn't really a need for an outside thing to do that.
But I'm personally fine with archiving.

#WritingExchange question 

@matt hi. What do I need to do to get an invite to writing.exchange?

#WritingExchange question 

@matt To qualify my vote of "allow archiving", I'm fully aware that what I post to the Fediverse is not private and there is no assumption of privacy. I believe in the goals and ethos of the Internet Archive and I'm quite happy for my toots to be included in their archive, if they see fit.

#WritingExchange question 

@matt I didn't see the vote until today. 😂

But I have mixed feelings, that said any public posts will be archived, and I'm okay with that.

Will also make searching your own musings easier, if they are public.
