If your application localizes error messages (which it should), you should also include a universal (e.g. numerical) error code so that non-English users won't have to try to guess the translation to search for an error on the internet

When women make a broad generalization about men*, stop before you reply "but not all men".

We know.

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.

h/t @gingerrroot and @c0debabe for the thought

Good morning people, I hope you have a wonderful Sunday :blobcoffee:

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.)

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.

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.
