I’m okay with strangers interacting with me on this account, but if their replies sound like something a concern troll or a sea lion would say, I will drop the conversation and mute and/or block them. No second chance given.
I’m not here to waste time with people who are obviously in bad faith, and I don’t owe them an answer.
(This is not a subtoot, but I wanted to say it after a couple of bad interactions in the past months.)

I just stumbled upon a batch number ending in 0W0
Good morning lovely people! Can you believe that we are halfway through October?
When women make a broad generalization about men*, stop before you reply "but not all men".
There are two options:
1) Make the broad generalization. Some men will have to stop and self-examine to see if they actually perform the behavior being criticized. Self-examination is good.
2) Specify "some men". This gives men who DO perform the behavior the excuse to say "well they don't mean ME". Enabling failure to self-examine is bad.
earlier today, it took me eight tries to solve a google captcha
so when google and i disagree that strongly about which tiles contain traffic signals, motorcycles, etc... ONE OF US PROBABLY SHOULDN'T BE DRIVING RIGHT NOW

Good morning people, I hope you have a wonderful Sunday
I love open doors events, where it is possible to have guided tours of places that are not usually open to the public. (That’s why I haven’t been much active during the day.)
One bright spot in my day so far: I got to kick InfoWars off m.s.

someone i know left mastodon cus they didnt get enough followers in a couple months and uuuh that's fucked up. it shouldn't be about followers but also you can't expect to get followers without also following lots of people. it doesnt really work here like that from my experience? this isn't the bird site.

these are both serious questions. i want to write my reps and include legislation i want them to support and all 100 names so it’s long and annoying
Happy Coming Out Day to everyone but especially the people who are unable, for whatever reason, to come out today.
You're no less valid for not being able to participate in a made-up holiday. Your health, safety, sanity, whatever your reason, is more important. Keep going and stay strong.
