Wow, Google is serving ads using a protocol that Chrome extensions don't have permission to block - so adblockers in Chrome are silently failing to block google ads.

Recommended workaround: completely disable 'QUIC' protocol support in Chrome.

@spanishbizarro wow, lo mismo que mstdn.jp... fué deliberado o por accidente? como como fueran las reacciones? no vi nada sobre esto

que se pasó con mastodonar.club?

@paulsheprow this sounds like a feature that would be good to have in a mobile client

@paulsheprow ouch -- got any links on what happened? couldn't find anything via search engines

@nev @BastianInuk @druonysus a coop instance is a really intriguing idea :)

@Nyoho yes, I created it. :) You're welcome! I'm glad it's appreciated. ^_^

@druonysus that's an interesting concept!

@theolagendijk yeah, I think one way to address this is to add more information about instances and help people make informed decisions. But it's also a UI problem; it can't be too complicated (people won't bother making a deep research about instances).

@Divan @TheKinrar @ashfurrow @chris Excellent news, thank you for the links! :)

@cwebber Lula lost three consecutive elections with a Sanders-style platform, softening his stance on each. In the fourth one he even agreed to a meeting with the IMF prior to the elections, and won. (Nice huh?)

Poverty reduced by historical levels, Brazil became part of BRICS, all was going well... at the cost of rampant corruption to keep the elites happy. Then these same elites riled up the people in "anti-corruption" rallies to overthrow Lula's party and now they're in government.

@cwebber Brazil had a good 14-year stint with Sanders-style Social-Democracy under Lula and Dilma.

The short version is: it really works policy-wise, but the concessions made to appease the corrupt longstanding wheels of power (there were no structural changes at the top) took their toll and now we're a mess (the old elites reclaimed their positions in Brasília).

@cwebber As Mr. Trump would put it: Sad!

@cwebber It took me a while to parse your comment, then I realized that by left you probably meant American mainstream Democrats? (or British Labour for that matter)

@TheKinrar @Divan oh, this feature is already in master??
