DOOMers


I liked this video quite a bit. It's definitely something I've constantly battled with - even though things are shitty, I _strongly_[ believe that we should try our all to change things for the better. The issue comes with deciding where to put one's efforts...

Re: Scruff Under-reaction


O ok fine, Scruff has sort of redeemed themselves (like while NYC is COMPLETELY freaking out. note: scruff is based out of NYC)


Grindr did a thing where they made global chat free, so I do kinda like that. Hopefully it means moar eyes are in the epicenters. Still nothing concretely telling people to stay the fuck home

covid half-assed reaction #245934


Only just blasted today, Scruff's reaction is woefully insufficient.


Grindr is even worse. They're showing _more_ profiles than normal, and giving out their "premium features" to free members.

I want to create grindr bots that give variants on the message "assume you've killed someone if you hookup"

just like how capitalism subverts communist symbolism to sell it back to people i think it'd be really funny if communists subverted capitalist imagery and put it on everything

texas flag branded toilet-paper in communism, baby



 

First Nation peoples and Canadian allies who are blocking the rail systems, this is how you make the settler state tremble. You are costing them upwards of billions.

Keep fucking fighting.

Huh, thanks for the tip @Daniel Martinez I didn't know about that method. It's not video searches, but if there was a channel I wanted to watch everything on, I'd definitely look into that.
 
Slay the #Cyberdemons. Personal unorganized boycotts might not "work" if we intend to cause a big change quickly, but they do add value to your life by 1) depriving your opponents of your hard-earned money, 2) by depriving your opponents of data-derived profits, 3) by financially rewarding the competitors who provide products or services that align with your values, 4) by requiring you to re-evaluate whether you really need certain things and then thinking creatively to find a solution to your needs while living by your values wherever possible, and 5) by setting an example for others to follow. Naturally, there are times where we must pay a toll to cross that bridge, but in most cases there are alternate routes if we're willing to swim.


 

finally sort of caught up with the mastodon ~~drama~~ that's been happening over the last few years. If there's one image that kept coming to mind, it is the last time I was at AWS Re:Invent. That week was (by a very very very large margin) the most percentage of "whites only" I've seen on grindr & scruff profiles.
 
yeh, it's hard to discern from the drama, and a lot of it is reminicent standard FLOSS in-fighting. The rabbithole of reading stemmed from this article on the daily dot: https://www.dailydot.com/debug/mastodon-fediverse-eugen-rochko/ (amongst other "toots"
 
Ah, yeah it does seem kind of sketchy to unconditionally ban Nazis, then establsh yourself as the benevolent dictator for life, and expect nobody to have a problem with that. Personally my biggest beef with Mastodon (aside from the fact that #federation is #stupid) is that it has these tiny columns that look great if you have a closed source, spyware laden smartphone, but on a laptop... not the greatest UI.
