This is a growing movement, with children from over thirty towns across the #UK participating and the union of headteachers supporting it. Every day we hear more reports about climate and ecology -related disasters, the origins of which are man-made, the consequences of criminal responsibility on the part of countless so-called ‘grown-ups’.

PostgreSQL doesn’t need short limits to character data for efficiency, so you might as well set every field to 4000 (since Django doesn't allow CharFields without max_length).

Once again I have been tempted by the max_length parameter to CharField types in Django to setting needless length limits that cause stupid-long page titles to break my app.

Don't share content if you don't endorse it.

Don't spread it. Let it die.

Do not give it a platform.

Reminder: the title "marquis" literally means "edgelord".
