Why is the Macarena playing in the background, and why is there a green swastika? So many questions.

Dear Soupies
There is this vote going on 20. June 2018 on the EU parliament that will have huge impact on the internet how it is now! They prepared it in silence and I just discovered it yesterday.
They want filters all over the web to prevent copyright infringements. They: big media companies that didn't adopt to this new medium and think it's unfair that information can float free and that people can link to their sites without paying. This aims to other big companies like google and yahoo etc but it will bring many small sites to shut down, because they don't want to or cannot afford those filters. 
Data will be more caged than ever.  Science, journalists, artists, everyone using the net for inspiration and sharing knowledge won't be able to get informations without paying or other barriers. Social media as we know it will die, meme-culture will die.
Please take action. Write an eMail, take a phone call, at least read and then share these links:
SAVE OUR INTERNET – German
SAVE OUT INTERNET – English

Enough is enough.

It has been clear for a while that whoever maintains soup doesn't give a fuck anymore; constant "unexpected maintenance" (was there ever an expected one?), zero communication with the community, when something stops working it takes days - weeks even - to get a fix (which, if my guess is correct, is restarting one of the services that has crashed), not to mention lack of any new features (besides the NSFW button, which no one asked for). This sucks.

I won't quit right away, but starting today I will be far less active here. I have moved to Mastodon (link here) where I continue to do the same thing I did there, which is sharing whatever crap I manage to find on the internet. Mastodon has it's own set of problems - 500 character limit (which I guess they picked up from twitter), 4MB for images, 8MB for videos, the community is full of faggots, but it has two major advantages: a) it's not tumblr, b) IT FUCKING WORKS. It's also possible to make your own instance, which sure beats my approach of trying to recreate everything from scratch.
It's really a shame, since soup at it's very core is pretty great and I don't regret the time I've spend here (I believe I registered at the end of 2011), but even my patience has it's limits. The only thing I'm glad about in all of this is that I never gave any money to the site because I'd give it right before that crash which erased all posts from 2016 and beyond that paying for anything here has been pointless for the reasons outlined above.
Feel free to follow me on Mastodon if you want to stay in touch.
