You know, for declaring itself the master race, white people are incredibly fragile.

Andy Ngo of Quillette got milkshake’d in Portland today and nothing will make my day any better than that news.

Unless someone gets him again.

I saw a post recently about one of the Purism devs writing a rather right wing blog post or something of the sort. Anyone have a link or more info on that?

I wrote the introduction to a new book called Godless: 150 Years of Disbelief. (Out Sept 1)

Godless is a compilation of wide-ranging texts, both hilarious and horrifying, on atheism, belief, and religion. The selections in the book appeared in various formats from the late 19th century through the early 21st, and their authors were often active in the anarchist, Marxist, or radical leftist movements of their day.

Any chance someone can develop something like Twitter's BlockBot that we can set up to add domains to so that even if the instance can't keep up, we can personally block domains and users with ease?

I use an anti-nazi, anti-antifa bot on Twitter and works amazing.

Next project, how to get my Github pushes to build (I use Jekyll) and then have the site files get copied to my host.

I believe I can do this via SSH using Travis CI.

Anyone else have ideas? I currently have a shared hosting plan with Dreamhost. Will eventually move to Digital Ocean or something when I can afford it.

Despite being free software, Mastodon as a project takes a hardline stance against nazis

joinmastodon.org/covenant

The covenant has been added approx. one month ago so that for the first time in Mastodon's history, our project could make "no nazis" a part of our branding.

Dan Arel :verified: boosted

so, yesterday, i put together a list of nazi instances i had blocked. that post has been boosted over 60 times. that's cool, i'm glad i did something useful.

but i can't do that kind of thing if i can't eat. my post about needing money for food has been boosted ten times.

if you appreciate and value the work i put into notifying everyone about where the fash are and you have some money to spare, please pay me.

if you can't give, please always boost.
