oh :/

i won't be filling it in. it would be much better if something
"activist" were used like "the decider" feature on the crabgrass site,
https://we.riseup.net (note the httpS ;-)

yeah ^^ not encrypted. i know it's only food, but do you really want
to let people know what you're going to be eating these few days?
because, actually, you won't just be telling people what you'll be
eating, you'll also be telling them what days you will be there (and
what days you won't be at home), plus possibly other info that i am
not even thinking of (what time you were connected to the internet,
which emails you read, which lists you might be on, etc)... i think
you get the point, anyway.

ah, yep - all that info, too!

that all sounds very reasonable. 

so, please can we *not* use the corporate stuff to organise ourselves
- there are enough free software and/or activist alternatives around:
it's no longer 1999 - or even 2005!
