thinking about a D&D group that's all monsters just trying to help people and the villains are a regular D&D party that hassles them at every turn

Kill the concept of "RT does not equal endorsement."

Don't share content if you don't endorse it.

Don't spread it. Let it die.

Do not give it a platform.

I've said this before: curate your own experience.

Unfollow people, turn of boosts from certain people, make lists of that's your thing, follow hashtags, mute & block liberally.

You do not owe anyone your time nor energy.

:blobnotlike: blocking ads is evil grr
:blobuwu: HTTP is a pull-based medium. it is within the original philosophy of HTTP to selectively pull the data, for example, a device that doesn't support images won't download them. by circumventing ad "blocking", you are spitting in the face of HTTP. a more accurate term would be ad rejection. ads are not "blocked", they are simply not asked for.

Expanding on the previous toot: I met dmr when he visited Italy in the late 70s to talk about Unix at the University of Milan. He spent an hour on the talk and God knows how many hours answering questions. My memories as a child are of a burly man with an American accent talking like a "kind giant" about stuff I loved. Right at the end I built up the courage to go and ask him something which bugged me enormously at the time (remember, this is pre-ANSI C) which was how printf() managed to haveโ€ฆ

@Wewereseeds there's some good news actually! Turns out you can force uninstall the apps via adb, without root:
pm uninstall -k --user 0 <name of package>

Haven't tested this myself tho.
