fascism 

"Actually, it's only Agile if it comes from the Agile region of France. Otherwise it's just [bad] Project Management with fancy names for meetings."

We have added language to the mastodon.technology Code of Conduct to prohibit fascism and fascist-sympathizing from our instance. We will also not federate with instances who choose to federate with fascist instances. Let @ashfurrow know if you have any questions.

The CoC is here: mastodon.technology/about/more

cool okay so update on the webpacker error: turns out I'd left a merge conflict in a JS file so it was no longer valid JS and I just... I feel like the default warning config should, you know, warn about this kind of thing?

"This file isn't valid" would be infinitely more helpful than what webpack gave for output: nothing. A recent change to curtail log sizes, apparently. Harrumph.

I just want to thank all the mods at mastodon.technology (@bclindner @danielhglus @fuzzface) for their work handling reports on the instance, and especially this week with the wave of spam we're seeing on the fediverse.

An extra-special thanks to @bclindner for building tools to automate moderator responses to these spammers, and for open-sourcing those tools to help other admins: github.com/bclindner/ivory/

Masto mods and admins, please open - new anti-spam tool 

what do you mean, "asset precompilation failed??" re-run the build! 

Richard Prince is an asshole, that's my opinion, and he set a precedent that's led to more artist stealing instagram posts [cw abuse] twitter.com/helen/status/11385

2014: hey yeah I like art. I don't know much about the art world but let's join an art startup...
2019: I apparently have very strong opinions about Richard Prince stealing Instagram posts

fucken... that β€œoven timer” box makes me do a double take every time I walk by it at work
