Sonic's new catchphrase is a mouthful but I think it might catch on

Clicking "I am not a robot" and replying with a code sent to my phone unlocked it. Kinda not a barrier to entry if that's all it takes.

This just confirms to me that twitter is either absolute trash or the system in question is based around some bottish tactic of following-but-not-following users in order to harass them.

After deleting @elisarver on twitter, I decided to create a new, pseudonymous account.

I signed up using phone number, and went through the process of adding my favorite left twitter people under a private list called "cool leftists"

After adding two people, I got a "this account has been suspended" with a link to the rules.

The only rule I could find I possibly violated was "adding users to a list too rapidly" which is weird, because I'm, as a human, clicking very slowly through the process.

How did "the quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog" become the typical sentence that contains all letters of the alphabet and not "sphinx of black quartz, judge my vow" which is objectively a million times cooler

All I want from proposals for generics in go is for the solution to be a second order solution.

They could even use github.com/clipperhouse/gen in the solution, and if find that useful.

Dudes, I cannot stress this enough.

Sometimes you just gotta shut the fuck up and listen. Even when you don't want to. Even when it hurts. We are conditioned to dismiss the valid concerns of women because we are conditioned to be sexists. Yes, even I am guilty of this.

Go in the other direction. If you don't like hearing 'men are trash', prove you aren't with your actions.

Be better, try harder. Put some effort into being a decent person and a whole new world will open to you.

Sitting here wondering why the API I'm using doesn't support the full API of the thing I want to use.

Then I open the main API. Whoo that's a lot of fields.
