an appeal to the fediverse regarding anti-abuse
Fascism joining the fediverse is extremely bad, and we have to do something about it. But please, please, please: give me two weeks before you roll out any new solutions. Some of the solutions being proposed look like they will make the situation better but will make it much worse.
I am dropping nearly everything to write a demo and spec explaining how to do things right. Please give me two weeks. I've been preparing for this.
@telent @switchingsocial OwnTracks works wonderfully. It doesn't have bells and whistles that Strava has (running, cycling and swimming detection), but if you're looking for location tracking only, it'll serve you wonderfully.
You can choose to use the app + some server hosted by someone else, or you can deploy your own server.
The app requires Google services though. If you're looking for one that doesn't (and have Nextcloud on a server), check out PhoneTracks.
@rhiaro Macedonian is a mix of Bulgarian and Serbo-Croatian, but leaning a bit more to the Bulgarian side. If they speak slowly, those who speak Serbo-Croatian can understand them.
Depending on who you ask, that dialect might be considered as a part of Serbo-Croatian or as a transitional Bulgarian.
"Zona Zamfirova" is a *very* famous comedy/drama in that weird mix. Every Macedonian, Montenegrin, and Serb you've ever met/will ever meet will know about it.
remember not to access ANYTHING of Amazon's the next two days.
no amazon music
no amazon prime tv
no whole foods
none of the amazon stores
If you have Amazon Prime, cancel it, just resub afterwards if you want, don't even go for it if you're offered a free month. Unplug Alexa if you have her for any reason, don't impulse buy anything.
Support the workers, don't be a scab.
@trash @StaleWhiteBread @lynnesbian I understand that you don't give enough of a fuck about him to follow him daily. But, you need to acknowledge why those less privileged than us feel threatened by his behavior. Rational Wiki has plenty of examples of him undermining marginalized groups. Acknowledging that establishes a common ground from which we could try to have a conversation. Dismissal feels like trolling, intentional or not.
@trash @StaleWhiteBread @lynnesbian In case you're not trolling, take a look at this thread: https://mobile.twitter.com/notch/status/898854001520889856
In case that's not enough for you, Rational Wiki has plenty of examples: https://rationalwiki.org/wiki/Notch
If you feel like defending him after reading through these two links, then I can't help you. 🤷♂️
@brainblasted Looks really awesome! Would you describe it as "barely usable" at this point? I found your repo and I'm thinking about playing with it.
us pol, ignorant opinion
* Gun laws: Highly regulate them, like Switzerland.
* Electoral college: The candidate with the most votes should win, like in every other democracy.
* Drug issues: Legalize every drug for consumption, not redistribution. Like Portugal.
* Healthcare: Nationalize it, like every European nation.
Like a wise man once said, they call it the American Dream, because you have to be asleep to believe it.
us pol, ignorant opinion
As an outsider, the more I learn about US politics, the more I'm convinced that every single political issue they face has already been solved by someone else. They're just too stubborn to adopt the solutions that someone else came up with. Instead, they have to look for their own special solution in order not to scatter their egos as "#1 in the world".
"We're too different", "we're too big", "we're too diverse". No, you're just too ignorant to look outside your bubble.
All of those names were incredibly dumb first time I've heard of them, yet I used all of them because they provided me value that no other product did. Over time, I got used to those names, though I still consider them to be terrible.
Point being: if the average user sees a few events organized on @mobilizon that (s)he is interested in joining, (s)he would quickly get over a dumb name.
