Ah. This robot cat is part of the OpenCat project.

All I want in ideal bibliography management software is something that: Organises pdfs into directories in some useful way on the file system, embeds metadata directly in the pdfs, groups papers by arbitrary label, reifies and visualises authors, venues, publishers, locations, keywords, etc., and does bibtex export. Easy, really.
Another curious point about the recent Purism blow-ups is why nobody is taking Eugen to task for implementing the removal of reporting/mod features in the first place.

"Riot Games faces employee walkout, promises changes"

Great writeup by @awilfox !
@gamehawk @fribbledom if a platform has such persistent problems that it gets a reputation like that, then it lacks some sort of structural tools or safeguards needed to make it safe. It seems like it is a common failing when systems that work for smaller groups try to scale up. Culture aside, a lot of the things people have done with IRC over the years seem really ripe for abuse.
Mozilla is shutting down their IRC servers and moving to Discord, a proprietary chat service.
Hey Mozilla, aren't we forgetting something here? Our very own "Mozilla Pledge for a Healthy Internet” states:
> Principle 2 The internet is a global public resource that must remain open and accessible.
> Principle 6 The effectiveness of the internet as a public resource depends upon interoperability (protocols, data formats, content), innovation and decentralized participation worldwide.
