Why the hell aren't there free public showers?
How are you supposed to say you care what happens to the homeless if you aren't providing this service? We're at a point where "not getting hired for hygiene" is just code for "we don't hire people who aren't financially stable enough already to have their own private hygiene facilities".

There is no such thing as 'white genocide'.

There is a such thing as white people voting against what they need for the last 6 decades to spite communities they don't like and it taking its toll.

the perfect game developer conference would be one where we just share knowledge about the craft of making games, things like storytelling and technical elements and solving design problems and big tech corps arent invited and nobody talks about monetization or gimmick hardware or any of that boring crap

Why doesn't Mastodon support audio upload? Because of copyright! Imagine, what would happen if someone posted a copyrighted audio file here! That would terrible 😱.
We are lucky, there isn't any copyright on text, pictures or videos. Phew.

AniMerrill boosted

Mastodon doesn't support audio files either. You know, the thing that is part of both HTML and ActivityPub specifications.

So Mastodon doesn't display more than four images attached to a post, even if there is more of them. The reason? Zip files ore something 🙄.

tired: nuclear power is dangerous, look at the accidents
wired: nuclear power accidents get a ton of press, but they are very uncommon when you look at how many reactors have gone through their entire service lives and never seen trouble
inspired: nuclear power could fail catastrophically once a week and it would still kill fewer people and damage the environment far less than our current fossil fuel power infrastructure does without any accidents at all

I really want to know why the techbros who think that it’s worthless to try something because a 100% failsafe and bug-free implementation isn’t possible ever do anything

Not to pick on Gargron, but look at how buggy mastodon has been over its lifetime and the failed features he’s tried and look at how he refuses to consider safety features because there’s no way to make it 100% effective in all cases

It’s almost like the impossibility of perfect implementation is an excuse for something else.

i propose a compromise - a new system, enhancing the brilliant imperial measurements with the flexibility of the SI units. no more inches and yards - just feet, kilofeet, centifeet, and even gigafeet

tl;dr= no fascists, no bullying, no doing fucked up shit. You know what that means. Otherwise a lot of us are socialists, leftists etc. Dont bully people either. Or start witch hunts. You can have bots as long as administration clears them first The site is available on TOR! https://www.starrev3tah2dnhj.onion Note: letsencrypt won't sign a .onion domain cert so you will have to make a security exception as it uses the same cert for the main domain
