the admin of a Mastodon instance should be called a Mastodontist. thanks

any time someone says "kids are better than adults" or "we don't deserve dogs", I wish what they were thinking was "wow, capitalism really tries to eradicate everything good out of a person we should get rid of it"

I'm liking this post:

THIS is the rallying cry I needed on a Monday morning…

“But if we are going to talk about smashing patriarchy and dismantling systems of oppression (as we should!), we need to understand the role of surveillance and data exploitation in perpetuating and enhancing those systems”

Google is trying to pull a fast one.

I manage mail for several domains which have existed for years. Each one has perfect SPF, DKIM, DMARC etc., and none are blacklisted anywhere.

Yet suddenly in the last two weeks all of them are getting mails bounced by Gmail. To "solve" this problem Google want me to register the domains at their postmaster site.

This whole situation has a whiff reminiscent of Mallaig harbour.

I wonder how many hours of my life I've spent trying to find a good weather app, where good means:
* it can reliably tell me whether I'm going to get rained on or freeze that day so I know what to wear
* it doesn't spy on me
* it doesn't require me to obtain a ~~weather API service token~~
* it isn't ugly as in 1990s desktop app ugly

it's cool how there are like 400 shits who make the world a lot worse than it needs to be for the >7 billion rest of us

instead of building border walls, bow about we build healthy boundaries. thanks

sorry for not captioning this video. I was tired and at a loss. it depicts a cat at a spa (?) having its paws massaged while soothing music plays. is defederating with, on account of the admin admitting they are a cop.​

the core developers being assholes is a perfectly legitimate reason to fork a repository and promote your fork. the feature you're adding (I hope) is that the fork has core developers who are not assholes.

Octodon is a nice general purpose instance. more
