Fandom culture is a scourge on the internet and I'm not sorry for saying so.

I just saw the trailer for BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY.

Record producer: "It goes on forever--six bloody minutes!"

Freddie Mercury(?): "I pity your wife if you think six minutes is forever."

ONLY TRUST YOUR FISTS, POLICE WILL NEVER HELP YOU

@starbreaker Okay, here we share a concern and your argument is extremely valid, possibly more valid than you know...

The Third Party Doctrine en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Third-pa

Holds that information voluntarily given to a third party requires no warrant to be obtained by the State. This logic is ill suited for the information age.

This is why I'm for peer-to-peer end-to-end encryption without third party escrow of private keys. This is a hard problem.

@starbreaker Totally fair question.

Network effects are real. You have a valid point. I maintain a FB profile under an alias because I wish to interact with a few private FB groups. Others can and do the same "real name" requirement be damned.

As for your tangential question: you're selling libertarianism short. It objects to *compulsion* most especially (but not exclusively) at the hands of the state.

Social & religious mores can be used for good or ill. The key is, are you free to chose otherwise?

@starbreaker Yeah, I always browse with Noscript and ublock or the equivalents, but they always get borked on Android :(

'If you’ve ever worked with oppressed groups, such as people who are homeless, abused, addicted or suffering from mental health problems, there's one thing you learn straight away. They usually don't frame their worldviews in terms of academic theories students learn in gender studies classes in university...they tend to not analyse their experiences in terms of systemic power and privilege...'

Finally drew something for #MerMay (ノ´ヮ´)ノ*:・゚✧

Is anybody in contact with @vantablack? Lack of posts is concerning considering what they were going through.

Obviously, boost widely.
