Part of the reason it's foolish to dismiss "fossbro" input about protecting (potentially marginalized/vulnerable) users is.....

It's just not a new concept. It may sound strange, but the Internet has been a haven for groups shunned or deemed taboo.... since the 90s.

"fossbros" have been around the block a few times. We know what works, we know what doesn't. And we know which promises are foolish to make.

One of the very loud people harassing F-Droid and developers of apps they don't like, is somebody who, as best I can tell, is pretending to have NPD/DID (multiple personalities)

This upsets me, because I know people with these disorders. Their lives are deeply affected, and the end goal of psychotherapy is for all "personalities" to appear as the same person. Turning it into a cute character trait for social media would be antithetical to that goal.

"We'd hate to have to... Cancel you. Is that what you want? I suggest you give in to our demands. Because we aren't fascists. Are we?

ARE WE?!?!?"

The driver was also careful to observe the strict New York City Vehicle Horn Code, under which it is illegal to honk your horn except to communicate one of the following emergency messages:

1. The light is green.

2. The light is red.

3. I hate you.

4. This vehicle is equipped with a horn.

They'll both do it. But you'll have to modify an e-reader to fit it, if you want to use that.

@tuxcrafting But nobody saw it because everyone was instance blocking whitehouse.gov

romeo and juliet fedi edition: there are no feuding houses, but romeo is on a single user pleroma instance and juliet is on octodon

It's been months and months since Gab joined the fediverse, and the folks carrying the banner of "Protecting People and Stopping Harassment" are *still* doing mostly harassment.

and, just btw, no, most people who connect to Gab do not, in fact, know what they are doing.

They're senile, and the likely cannot remember what they had for lunch yesterday.

aaaaaalmost got a spart of awareness there. Almost. Dude let it pass.

But yes, here's somebody who understands that application developers probably aren't equipped to educate users on hate speech, but doesn't understand that application developers probably aren't equipped to maintain an exhaustive list of places hate speech could maybe potentially possibly happen.

A silly domain for test deploys, now has a mastodon instance. A place for memes as shitty as the name. Zero bullshit tolerated.
