People will argue that using DMs on here is unsafe because the admins of servers can view it. Arguably, you should use DMs for no more than you should be using them on any platform that doesn't encrypt them end to end, like Twitter.
It's about assessing your own operational security risk. Use DMs like private messages on Slack or a forum. Use Signal or another encrypted messenger if privacy is highly important.
#Facebook wants you to spend more time on their platform, that's why it doesn't censor appalling and radical right content:
Tax havens are destroying the earth
<<Deforestation in the Amazon and widespread illegal fishing have both been linked to tax havens, according to a new study.
Some 68% of the investments tracked in the Amazon came from companies based in countries where no tax is paid.

Are they selling data from their free tier or is it a front for the US to gather data (or both)
UNIX was designed to make computers predictable and reliable.
DOS was designed to make a quick buck.
MacOS was designed to steal good ideas from other people and make a fortune exploiting them.
Windows was designed to antagonize MacOS by stealing its own ideas and putting them on DOS architecture.
GNU/Linux was designed so that everyone could have their own UNIX.
Only two of those goals are truly noble.
