@libravatar Libravatar lives! Yay!
@libravatar Great to have an open source alternative. Does this also make a difference wrt privacy?
If I would install this for my site, could I give my users the option to only use it for my site or to have everyone being able to download their picture/info?
@VictorVenema If you need it only for your site, yes you could run an instance, but you can also use the main instance, since, yes, we take privacy very serious! Esp. If your users do have external mail addresses, they would benefit from the main instance, since their Avatar would start to pop up in other places as well.
@libravatar Such a decentral use is a clear benefit.
"we take privacy very serious"
@VictorVenema Agree, I should really find a better wording. ;-)
So, maybe the better wording is: We promise to stay non-commercial!
