Purism has posted a rationale behind their disabling of the local and federated timelines: https://puri.sm/posts/opt-in-no-ads-and-no-tracking-solve-a-lot-of-problems-in-society/
They have also decided to reinstate the ability to submit reports as indicated by Kyle Rankin, their CSO: https://source.puri.sm/liberty/smilodon/merge_requests/4#note_30220
I have also updated my blog post towards the bottom with this information.
@jameshjacksonjr that's good news
@jameshjacksonjr Oh, server-level removal of timelines too, I didn't know that! Well, I guess it's still a relatively harmless modification compared to removing the ability to report abuse (which is apparently going to be reversed).
Welcome to the Fediverse BTW. :) If you ever want to try out the full Mastodon "experience", you can always join another instance while still keeping your librem account. Lots of people belong to more than one based on their interests.
@leadore @brandon yeah the reason I chose librem one bundle is I use a librem 15 laptop and have a librem 5 coming i pre-ordered day 1 of the campaign and they have more services coming that will be added to the services bundle so they make the hardware the OS the apps the app store and the librem one services bundle all working seamlesly in a amazing ecosystem!!
