The coolest thing about tonight's New Years Eve is that, out in space, four billion miles and six hours' at light speed from earth, a small spacecraft has been firing its jets and preparing for a flyby of a Kuiper Belt Object at 32,300mph. http://pluto.jhuapl.edu

proactively... to address a recurring request
Nerds think they're so smart, but look at how long it took Linus Torvalds to understand that maybe, just maybe his abrasive comments might actually hurt someone. Decades of lacking introspection. If he can make that mistake, so can other nerds, and they do, all the time. Nerds aren't some kind of enlightened cult. They're just people who spend a lot of energy on one thing, usually to the detriment of everything else, including people skills.

So, great work fediverse, you've shown you can be as toxic as the site you're making so much fun of.
“We are all victims of fraud in the marketplace of ideas.” Never has it been so true as now https://www.theverge.com/2018/8/28/17777330/internet-of-garbage-book-sarah-jeong-online-harassment
Anyway, take your victory lap and collect your prizes. You've made it clear that I'm not welcome here, and even though I disagree with the action this Admin is taking (banning me when I didn't break any rules doesn't seem right), I respect and support the Admin's decision to run their instance the way they see fit.
Please do your very best to be kind to each other. The world is a terrible place right now, and that's largely because it is what we make it.
This lie that I am anti-trans, or anti-LGBQ, is deeply hurtful to me (I know it's nothing like the pain LGBTQ people deal with every day, as they simply try to *exist* in a world that treats them so badly, but it is still hurtful in its own way to me). I just want to make it extremely clear: that is a lie, and the people spreading it are misinformed.
So I'm leaving the Fediverse, which has treated me with more cruelty, vitriol, hatred, and contempt than than anyone on the birdsite ever did. 4/x
