"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.

cool okay so update on the webpacker error: turns out I'd left a merge conflict in a JS file so it was no longer valid JS and I just...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.
Masto mods and admins, please open - new anti-spam tool
Say hello to Ivory, a new anti-spam tool for Mastodon. I've been working on this under wraps for the masto.tech mod team this weekend. This can auto-handle reports for you. Please let me know if you're having troubles setting it up or running it. It's using Selenium (I know, I know) so things will probably break. Still, it's a workable stopgap measure while we await the Moderation API.
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] https://twitter.com/helen/status/1138504821248385024
