Make the change, Credit Unions are so much better. And they do not have the perverse incentive to take your money!
At this the market place for ideas is a duopoly and acts accordingly.
From Teresa's Mosqueda Twitter account:
"Dear drivers, please stop ignoring "NO TURN ON RED" signs. Dear @seattledot, please ban right on red citywide so that stopping is the default behavior. Dear #WaLeg, please legalize automated camera enforcement. Sincerely, Someone who doesn't want to die on her trip home."
I was with you on the first sentence. Everything after that is bad policy.

Long post: Mastodon, newbies, an India server
I'm guessing that all of us newbies who've flooded in looking for a Twitter alternative should, sooner or later, build our own instance on a safe server.
It's a big plus for me that Mastodon's structure doesn't encourage the dangerous vanity of high follower counts/ celeb profiles. Smaller groups, focused on specific interests, with higher levels of trust: I could buy into that future.
Hi #fediverse, I'm an illustrator and graphic designer based out of New Delhi. Through editorial illustration, fiction and non-fiction comics I look at intersections of visual design + research with contemporary politics, social and human rights issues.
I also make political comics compiled under #politricks on most social media platforms. Links where they're supposed to be if you're interested :)
I am at #cascadiajs. Good talks, good people.
