I wanted to post this image in a post discussing privacy respecting chat apps. Facebook was crushing the resolution so I wanted to link to it directly, but there was a surprise waiting for me :'(

this is the url if someone wants to check it out: https://lemmy.ml/pictrs/image/8IjSIQBMvD.jpg?format=jpg it’s from this post

I think that someone here mentioned that the .ml domain is free and therefore often used by spammers and others. Facebook might have put a blanket ban on .ml domains.

I tested this months ago and there were some .ml domains that didn’t get filtered out on Facebook. However some of the biggest .ml sites are just those “YOU WON AN IPAD!” poo pieces.

Oh, well that’s a shame. Thanks for the explanation. But good thing that they’re not trying to censor

I also saw a R$ddit post about WhatsApp pointing to a 404 page for links to Signal. Sounds about right to me.
