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.
@brandon I don't see a problem with them not showing local/fed timelines, other than you are removing features some people might want. That's just a client-level thing, not an instance thing like removing reporting ability.
Caveat: *As long as* users aren't prevented from installing/using Tusky or some other client with their purism instance account, if they wish.
@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!!
