I'm seeing an increase in the amount of accounts signing up specifically to spread anti-Muslim hatred. The signups themselves appear legitimate – it's clearly a human typing in their reason to join and not just a bot.

We don't tolerate anti-Muslim hate speech on this instance, and never will. Those accounts get banned as soon as we find them. If you see something, report it, and we'll take care of it as soon as possible. Take care everyone.

"Web developers are like, the worst. IT people post a lot of stuff on the internet. Security post a little bit less stuff on the internet but developers and web administrators and web admin, they post everything on the internet. It's ridiculous."

Hey @LemmyDev Don't suppose there's a chance we can put a handlebar mustache on the Lemmy project's logo/mascot?

Got my is now an reader, thanks to github.com/skeeto/elfeed!

I've even used elfeed-org to configure my list of feeds the org-mode way: github.com/remyhonig/elfeed-or

My only gripe is that people don't seem to put plain RSS feed links on their sites anymore. I have to dig in their source code to find the "alternate" meta tag and copy/paste the feed from there.

Here is a list of verified fundraisers to help people impacted by the BC flooding: gofundme.com/en-ca/c/act/bc-fl

I have no clear sense of how to pick one so I did so somewhat randomly.

No wonder Jews end up complicit in the Christmasisation of Hanuka, if it's the only way to get the rest of you to notice it exists.

I realise that capitalism will always cater poorly to minorities, but I'm literally just asking for 10cm of shelf for a few boxes of candles next to the many many metres of red tchotchkes.

Saw both Shang Chi and the Eternals. The next phase of the MCU is looking pretty neat. Lots of characters and plots I haven't read before

The bird site is full of web 3 hype and it's driving me a bit crazy

Of course the Sumas First Nation knew better than to trust settler hubris to keep the lake bed dry, and of course they knew where to build to be safe from what just happened: cbc.ca/news/canada/british-col

But I am relieved to learn that that they were allowed to. There’s plenty of reservations that were forced onto the most flood and/or landslide prone land around. At least when everything else was taken from this Nation they didn’t get that piled on top. One small consolation.

Here's some Chapman's ice cream that we enjoyed in celebration of their new company wide Vaccination policy. :awesome:

My dudes @jupitersignal lay the smack down on "Web 3" and even give yours truly a little call out.

Love these guys, made my day.

2 months ago I discovered I had stage 2 hypertension due to my ADHD meds and obesity. Since then I've changed how I ate, walked an hour a day and lost 32lbs.

My dog is happier, I'm sleeping better and I'm feeling good

Split mechanical keyboards!

Are you using one? What are your thoughts? Also, are you using it on GNU/Linux?

I used to take a much harder position on free (as in freedom) & open source software. Rigid to the point of fighting uphill most of the time with family, clients and with my own software sometimes.

I am still a passionate and support of FOSS but now remember to breathe and focus on the most important priorities. For the sake of my health and my family's prosperity.

I look forward to a day when I work entirely in FOSS. That's the dream :) I wouldn't have to worry as much about compromise.

The Wet'suwet'en, with the help of Haudenosaunee reinforcements, are now enforcing their trespass laws and forcing Coastal Gas Link crews away from Wedzin Kwa. twitter.com/Gidimten/status/14

Although the video ends with a call to come and join them, it's not a good idea for everyone to. You have to be sure you won't be a burden in harsh conditions, and settlers need to know how not to white saviour (I heard some shiiiit from the Dakota Access fight). But anyone can donate: unistoten.camp/support-us/dona

I'm feeling a little smitten by System76. Their love of Rust is inspiring and their tenacity in delivering premium, FOSS hardware and software is awesome.

It's expensive, but I'm pretty sure the next time I need new hardware, I'm going through them.
