Understand my words with full knowledge and reverence for my connection to the void.

My data is not yours to own.

You came here and asked to sell us things, then tracked us with the things you sold us.

You came here and begged for trust, which many gave you, then betrayed it by selling our secrets.

Then you took away our nation.

My data is not yours to own.

Capitalism itself isn't evil.

Any -ism unchecked will become corrupt and quickly tend toward evil.

Until you open the box, it may contain a live cat, a dead cat, or maybe a fucking dragon. Keep opening those boxes, you might get lucky

A quote from a HackADay article: "...a hacker is somebody who looks at a β€œsolved” problem and can still come up with multiple alternative solutions,"

While that may be true, I think a hacker is someone who looks at a "solution" and comes up with all sorts of problems with it. The nice ones tell you what those are. Others just laugh behind your back, and maybe pop some popcorn for the coming show. The nasty ones figure out how to make it work for their gain.

Thankfully htown is devoid of the nasties.

Ominous phrases from : "It's the chickens' turn... And you're next to them."

okay yeah so, this site is very welcoming to NSFW content and stuff, but please make sure that everything lewd is placed under a CW or at the very least, marked as sensitive with text like "lewd, NSFW, 18+" in the post so that people can know what's there! Also, if you notice porn that's not hidden properly, don't boost it!

Now that I've made my way through the Infinite Dick Parade that was the reports queue this morning:

You MUST use the sensitive-image overlay if you post an NSFW image to the public timelines.

You are not required to do so, but PLEASE tag the image in some other way to let people know what the content of the sensitive image is.

Also, PLEASE use a CW (just "NSFW" is fine) if you're going to use graphic terms to describe the image.

(Hashtags in the CW text don't work. Hashtags UNDER a CW do.)
