I identify as nonbinary. She/her is preferred, but I don't care about pronouns much.

Mastodon Alt:


@kazuma @miro2 @sylveon tbh i don't mind maps who, like, you know, think fucking kids is wrong and try to avoid contact with kids and stuff like that. Unfortunately they seem to be the minority from what I've seen, and groomers and other scum inevitably infest any community that shows any tolerance for any kind of maps.

@miro2 @sylveon truly a brave and controversial take

@miro2 @sylveon all you had to do to get people to agree with you was post a supernova hot take like "MAPs shouldn't groom children" blobcatuwu

@sylveon all these tags got fucked up

@nate_river @kazuma @miro2 @sylveon i miss back when maps at least had the decency to pretend they didn't want to be around children

@nate_river @kazuma @miro2 @sylveon Glad to see someone once again proving why nnia is the worst instance on this entire network, imagine unironically believing children ever belong anywhere near pedophiles.

awful take
"Murder? Pedophilia? Hitmen for hire? Gore and torture? Terrorism? Any crime you can possibly think of, and countless so horrible you can't even imagine? Yeah, that's all fine, who cares. Racism, though? Now that's where I draw the line."

@torproject I think that perhaps you are not fully educated on this subject, I am quite sure that it is in fact "TOR".


@mewmew I dunno why or why not, I just want to try running a pleroma instance and I don't know shit about it. You say don't use OTP, they say use OTP, and I don't know what difference it makes.

@mewmew I remember you saying not to use OTP if someone wanted to run a Pleroma instance, but the Pleroma gitlab recommends it. Why shouldn't people use it?

Microblogging was a mistake. An attractive, candy-colored, addictive mistake.

I will never actually implement it but sometimes I look at what the popularity of Twitter has done to the shapes of our conversations and I want to mandate a *minimum* post length here.

Mastodon's default limit of 500 is a start but not really enough. Every instance that raises the limit into the thousands of characters or beyond is doing a great thing by providing a way to wean people off of short, staccato exchanges and give them the opportunity for thought and nuance in a text box they have been trained to dump thoughts into. It looks short at first but it just keeps on growing and growing as your thought takes shape, and you can actually go back and *edit* the fucking thing.

But really I still miss when goddamn Livejournal was where all my online social shit happened. People could still be dicks on it, don't get me wrong! it wasn't set up to encourage and enforce hot takes, though; it wasn't built to make a ton of money by farming your outrage and stress and turning it into ad views!

(Which is really a problem with ALL modern social sites, everyone wants to become the next Zuckerfuck and there is no way to do that without strip-mining your users' attention. But I've sung that song more than once and don't care to sing it again today; I've got shit to do.)

(This post brought to you by watching a disagreement actually get *resolved* thanks to the power of replies that are long enough to have some fucking nuance, instead of blowing up into a multi-day shitstorm of too-short replies going back and forth.)

@waifu @pony I can't wait for the charafan reruns. He's always a riot.

@kk heterochromia is honestly pretty cool irl

@Jdogg247 Also Trump's policing would be a military force crushing any protesting, considering how often he threatens that. Not private individuals defending their communities of their own free will.
