@skelly my aging techbro ass has kinda settled on the idea that it's the community that needs to be in charge of moderation, and a lot of our current social media strife comes from having these mega platforms that try to satisfy all sorts of conflicting communities. it's an impossible task imo.

@yakkoj reminds me of the time the NRO donated a hand-me-down space telescope to NASA and people were floored at how good it was. this is the hardware that the intelligence community is throwing away. the amount we spend on civilian space is a fraction of a drop in the bucket.
