Milo Y just got deplatformed at a furry convention, and I figured this would be the appropriate venue to pass my thanks to the furry community

Cosigned to everything Aria says here. It’s been such a disappointment.

It's kind of amazing watching a platform eat itself so quickly. First @KeybaseIO failed in the predictable ways where it lets men send messages unsolicited to women without much of a feedback mechanism for fixing banal harassment.

I'm not impressed with the argument that "golang is best for enterprise software because enterprise developers can't be trusted with power tools and don't deserve them". this is the reason everyone ended up hating java.

The fight for diversity, equality and inclusion is the fight for software freedom. Our movement will only be successful if it includes everyone. RMS does not speak for these values.

tech people: language does not structure how you think or what you can conceive in any way and that is why i should not make any effort to rid my vocabulary of sexism or ableism

@cwebber @mlemweb like everything is taken to extremes online.

you: I want to be more self-reliant, let's look up how to dehydrate food

youtuber: hey youtube, it's your boy prepper78! we're out here at the off-grid homestead and today we'll be dehydrating beans in between trips to the gun cache.
