If you see benches designed so one can't lie on it, you know something is very wrong in that place.
There are more empty houses then #homeless people, and yet more effort is being done to 'protect' with force that those houses stay unused.
And that not enough, authorities spening energy to make it impossible for someone being homeless to lie down on a bench.
Caring more to upgrade the price of their houses, then to focus on what houses should be for.
A home for someone to live.
May I suggest that every instance administrator suspends the Instance preteengirls.biz ?
Yes, it is exactly what you can guess from the domain name.
you know what looked good? early/mid 90s amiga games. fuck.

It gets on my nerves that people use WhatsApp or Signal or Threema or Telegram or whatever hip new thing they came up with for instant messaging because "it is too hard/weird to create an XMPP account".
XMPP is a protocol for federated instant messaging in case you never heard of it.
If we are already getting people to use Mastodon instead of birdsite, how about we made it really easy for instance owners to also run an XMPP server using the same credentials as Mastodon for user authentication?
Just because we can't imagine a better way to live and work with our fellow human beings doesn't mean there *isn't* one.
Every now and then I see the argument that people shut down their XMPP server because they communicate only with a handful of people over it.
This has been the main reason to keep my XMPP server as it is a great way to hook up all kinds of people to chat with me in real time through one of the most secure e2e encryption schemes we have available today.
2-3 people's chat less on the record is still a win imho.

This was, immediately and entirely, oversimplified into "Facebook keeps people from talking/hearing people who disagree with them." This is not what Facebook does! What Facebook does is feed people the content that will maximize engagement and keep people hooked on Facebook specifically. It will avoid, for example, giving you too much content you might like from a single source because you might leapfrog Facebook and just start reading their website instead.
We need to remind people of these rules for as long as people fail to see how obvious they are.
