If knowledge is power, then the act of teaching, or just showing someone how to do something, is an act of decentralisation, of equalisation.

Toots not being searchable was actively requested as an anti-harassment tool.

Full-text search allows bad actors to search on words representing viewpoints they don't like (for example, "Quran" or "abortion") and attack the people using them.

I mention this to provide context, not as a defense of the idea.

Just watched this talk on a #DIY #ISP federation organization called FFDN in France and Belgium:

Oh hey, here's a thing from the D&D 5e rule book:

I'm gonna lean into my character being nonbinary *so fucking hard*.

github.com/Pinswell/redbone-ma I wrote this thing which lets you toot from the command line. I am unsatisfied with it and I want to keep making improvements on it. Hopefully someone finds it amusing/educational?

“Making you angry, making you afraid, is really good for Facebook's business. It is not good for America.”

Facebook is a 'living, breathing crime scene,' says one former tech insider
