I thought this was some kind of irony or joke but this instance is literally asking you for your credit card numbers when registering https://anticapitalist.party/media/tm1jtc4UYfKPXzO6DzE
@corzntin that was predictable ! :/
@corzntin je pense que c'est une blague justement
@wxcafe yeah, I think so, because 1 time payments are non-sense in this case
@wxcafe putain je t'ai répondu en anglais mon cerveau est perdu depuis que je suis ici
@corzntin c'est pas très grave ^^
@corzntin Hosting costs. Instances are free to make paid inscriptions, ie. associations.
@corzntin looks legit
@Syleron it's not
@corzntin Sorry I meant that with sarcasim ^^ Which instance is it?
@Syleron capitalism.party !
@corzntin Perhaps I should make my own instance at a cost of 5k per registration for only the "elites" in society. You'd join right?
@Syleron 5k/month seems better
@corzntin wow... is that the capitalism instance by any chance? 😬
@corzntin Why would anyone pay just to be on a specific instance in a decentralized network? I assume they're either paying for the domain name (IMO, a waste of money, but whatever) or don't understand that they can communicate with people on that instance from a different one.
@corzntin I wonder if they managed to get anyone to pay.
@corzntin hoooooo boy
@corzntin I was wondering how long it would be before that happened... I'd be more into an instance requiring donation through some external system I trust rather than a form asking for credit card info.
@corzntin OMG is that serious
@corzntin I mean...assuming that they're not just harvesting the numbers, I don't see a problem with charging for accounts. MetaFilter has done that since forever
@corzntin capitalist.party, huh?
Anticapitalist Mastodon instance. Party means fun, not political party. But we're still political.
