also, awoo is (wild guess) something like 20 times less active so no wonder it felt dead. somehow i was expecting "has as many people as mastodon but they're all posthuman" and, no, not quite that.
even the furries I know are more like mastodon.social than the furries on awoo are. the person who got me into pf is a schemer
...okay, regardless of whether any of my friends stay here long term or not I think it's pretty clear masto's public tl is WAY better for me.
awoo: nonstop bad sandwich jokes, people noting how dead the place is, awoo jokes, an admin telling us all to donate money to someone i have bad personal history with
mastodon: jokes I actually laughed at, functional programming usually above my level but when not, really neat, altcoin futures watch, that APL person excited there's another APL person
<the clock strikes midnight> Ah yes... I have read of this phenomenon... "The Devil's Noon"

I know it sounds like a fucking bizarre pokegod trick but it just worked, so.
Just learned about types of empathy!
COGNITIVE EMPATHY - ability to predict others' thoughts and intentions, ability to "read between the lines". Often poor in #ActuallyAutistic people.
COMPASSIONATE EMPATHY - the desire to help others. Usually not affected by autism.
AFFECTIVE EMPATHY - the ability to share someone's feelings. Usually not affected by autism.

I hate the phrase "there is no ethical consumption under capitalism" even though it has a truth at its root, because it tends to discourage internal examination of one's own consumption patterns and decisions
perhaps some hope that after the revolution all their decisions will be made for them and they won't have to think about who gets hurt

Bout to go do a religion, I'll check in on all This after ^.^
