It seems to me that Oliver Meller-Herbert could make a case under article 13(2) of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights against Australia:
My number 1 reason for unfollowing people: long chains of toots on the same subject. If it takes more than 3 toots (at most) put it in a blog post.
It's a pity there isn't a “privacy” setting between unlisted and followers-only where anybody can see the post but it doesn't show even on followers timelines which could be used for the tails of such chains.

So, shitty startups get to market first, and then crowd out the decent-but-necessarily-slower projects.
Every time you recommend a tool that follows this pattern of abuse, you are enabling it. You, personally, become a part of the problem. You, personally, help a shitty startup crowd out a decent project.
Guardian article on black people's Covid19 mortality with not a single mention of vitamin D deficiencies which seems to me like a plausible explanation worthy of investigation. Certainly, I'd like to see it eliminated before people jump to other conclusions.
One of the better XKCDs, IMHO:
Programmer who likes science/astronomy, etc, but is focusing for now on the construction of an off-grid house.
