description for the image in my last boost 

A heat map of the monthly mean global lnd-ocean temperature index from January 1900 to June 2019 (with all the months from now to 2050 in gray). There were some months half a degree below the mean at the beginning of the 20th century, but it took a sharp increase in the 1980s, and now pretty much every month is about 1 °C above the mean.

development of the deviations from global average temperatures over time - our actions today will decide how the grey parts will be colored!

just a reminder that instance admins will never ask for your password for any reason! there's no reason for us to need it

so if someone ever DMs you and asks for a password, report that DM! It's definitely a scam

Scaring off people we don't want here 

There's a bunch of new people here recently, so I think I'll say a few things that will scare off many of the sorts of people that we don't want here

It is the official policy of scholar.social that:

🍍 Nazis should have their speech curtailed at every opportunity
🍍 Supporters of Jordan Peterson or Milo Yiannopoulos—leave now
🍍 There is no such thing as "reverse racism"
🍍 Vaccines don't cause autism, and for that matter, autistic people are equally valuable!

"Mastodon is supposed to be for free speech" is fucking hilarious name one person from the early Dev teams who thought "ah yes, we are making a service intended to enable Free Speech™"

Mastodon literally got popular because we marketed it as Twitter Without Nazis and worked (over time) to implement strong moderation and anti-harasment features. The first instances running Mastodon all had explicit statements in their codes of conduct saying hate speech is not allowed and fuck your 'free speech'

tiny thing to fight surveillance capitalism 

urls often contain tracking information added to the end of them. when you are linking articles, stuff like the "utm_source" and "fbclid" sections allow people to track where you got the link from and how you are spreading it. this allows cops & corps to map out social groups.

while you can remove that stuff by hand, there's a firefox/chrome addon called "neat URL" that comes with an existing blocklist that automatically cleans off a lot of that stuff.

Need financial help, boosts appreciated 

Hey there

Got unexpected expenses this month. I just paid my rent and it's going to be really rough to buy food for the rest of the month. Idk how I'll manage it right now.

If you can and want to help you can shoot me a few euros over here:

paypal.me/Siphonay

It's ok if you can't or don't want to, but a boost would help me a bunch.

Have a nice day.

@shello Well, we're going to be performing the Pirate Party Anthem at the European Union Cental Headquarters. And we hope that we will be able to compete against all the other European Union parties, so we are going to do that.

Pavlov: the dogs salivate when I ring a bell

Me: weird. Why?

Pavlov: they connect two unrelated events due to repeated conditioning

Me: haha stupid animals

Pavlov: the experiment took 69 days

Me: nice

so it seems pretty clear vice is trying to get outrage clicks on its latest mastodon article.

this is a good opportunity to give 'counter promotion' a try

here is a good article to circulate instead of the vice article:
