"But I don't want to go among autists," Igel remarked.

"Oh, you can't help that," said the Shitposter. "We're all autistic here. I'm autistic. You're autistic."

"How do you know I'm autistic?" said Igel

"You must be," said the Shitposter. "or you wouldn't have come here."

I hope I've done enough to show that it's very, very very clear that the folks calling me "a bad actor" are easily 10x more harmful to marginalized communities and the fediverse as a whole, as some Itty bitty shitty PyQt5 application.

I also hope I've done enough to show that even a little centralization is bad. Mastodon.social got too big for its britches, and Eugene is literally outright refusing to, not just neglecting to, but outright saying he will not, enforce his own Code of Conduct. He had to be wheedled and prodded to even show a little bit of transparency.

I seriously hope that I've made these things perfectly clear. Especially on that first part; At this point, I don't want to hear a god damned thing about someone being "harmed" by a PyQt5 application that downloads public content.

Because holy shit am I bored with this.

marked NSFW, obviously. It's just TOO HOT FOR FEDI.

Here, I trimmed out the only part of the LoR teaser that's actually worth watching.

Little punk buddy doing what he does best: Building something amazing with a part someone was careless enough to drop into Zaun.

It's okay, you don't miss much after this scene. Just shittier inventors using Ekko's technology with like, no fucking attribution.

So what happened? Where were the arrests and Trump's continuation. Well according to the fringe, it all happened. You just did not get to see it. Who was arrested? Uh...dunno. But here's the latest drivel.

This guy just sucks overall and is a cheap ripoff of fedi's very own @djsumdog

how about a tf2 themed instance called scoot-lab?

The ceremony went without any disturbances. I can't wait to see the next stage of Q's unbelievably sneaky plan.

I feel like the military band playing Ding-Dong! The Witch is Dead was a bit much....

Mastodon's implementation of blocks is bad. Very, very bad. It's an attempt to emulate Twitter's block "logic", which is also bad.

On almost any other platform/protocol that came before modern social media, Alice blocking Bob means that Alice does not see anything Bob posts, and DMs/whispers from Bob either get silently dropped or rejected with a message. Bob is "blocked" from communicating with Alice.

Twitter and Mastodon (try to) also enforce the inverse; Alice blocking Bob also means Bob cannot see anything Alice posts. To some, this sounds fair and reasonable. The problem is, it can only ever be enforced on a website that requires an account to view content. And Twitter's entire business model is a global public conversation that anybody can tap into and participate in. 80% of visitors are lurkers, lurkers share by pasting links to other platforms. This is incompatible with requiring registration to view content.

But Mastodon is free! It's open! It's run by you! It's by the people! It's for the people! Why on Earth would you want/need to emulate those evil bastards at hellsite dot com?

Because of market pressure. As it turns out, Mastodon's target market, people who were too toxic for twitter, routinely used the blocker-is-invisible-to-blockee logic as a weapon on twitter. Obviously, they expected their full toolkit to be available on Mastodon. But Mastodon is decentralized; you can only reliably perform this sort of restriction on the blocker's server. that's it. that's a very small part of the fediverse.

What's the solution? Understand that this is gaslighting literally everyone involved. It also gives a false sense of security, which I feel is important to mention, because these features are almost always forced upon us for reasons of health and safety.

While you're here, you should understand that gargron doesn't care about safety.

His "official" flagship instance still federates with these users. It does not federate with me. When I told him about them, he told me I was too loud about it.

Holy shit, everyone atomicly switched sides.

At the exact same second, the people who were screaming "he's your president, suck it, get out of you don't like it" are now screaming "not my president" and vice versa.

I don't think anybody had morals. Just a list of things they want to "do back"

Post all your phat videos to FSE users quick so the final incremental backup pete has to make is ridiculous

I'm not saying I'm superior to you virgins because the weebiest anime I've seen is Inferno Cop.
