So Alexis Kennedy wrote a big denial of everything that's been said about him, and his fiancee wrote a supporting essay, Very Concerned about Callout Culture (TM).

Hey @unklebonehead I'd been doing some of my own hosting for a while -- have a nextcloud instance -- but based on your recommendations I now have an actual yunohost instance and I do like it. Had some glitches installing it the first time and gave up, but I tried again later and all was well. I had hoped to use it to run a mastodon instance but it won't do that without a dedicated subdomain, and I had some problems even trying to run it on a subdomain. So still no mastodon. Rest is cool.
