Right. Been sitting on this for far too long.
I offer for your perusal a critique, of sorts, of a laudable movement, but one which I now believe to be both target blind and exclusionary, and that, as a consequence, I don’t want to devote any more of my time to it.
For all the creatives out there. This is something I've been involved with - for me as a musician it creates a community of practice, where normally the actual creative practice is a very lonely one. I need people. If you need people, just to notice while you work, and want to share things as you build/create/make them, then this is a place for you:

"Next time work makes you feel less than human, should you gently speak truth to power, or should you use mindfulness to self-regulate & maintain function in an oppressive system? Should you choose to self-regulate, are you tacitly thanking the oppressive system for giving you the tools of self-regulation to begin with? Furthermore, how much of this experience—this process of spelunking into my mind—should be comfortable and brightly colored? How much should feel good?" https://www.theringer.com/tech/2018/10/25/18010314/meditation-headspace-insight-timer-apps

@HerraBRE I’m confused about mailpile. Since it’s an MTA, you’re going to have to point it at an IMAP/POP server. Unless you and your correspondents encrypt zealously, whoever controls that server can snoop. It’s best to store your mail on the device running mailpile. If you don’t have a laptop that strategy restricts your access to your mail. I guess I’m having trouble thinking through the use case. I’m not even sure this rambling makes much sense.

Fascism, cry for help
Sorry for my absence. I'm fighting fascism right now. Things are serious in Brazil. A black man was murdered, stabbed 12 times while the murderer yelled the name of the fascist candidate. A girl with a t-shirt against the candidate was kidnapped by 3 men, who beat her and draw the Nazi symbol on her with a knife.
We are forming a resistance. However, Brazil needs you. We are afraid. This is a cry for help. Search for news about Brazil and share them of you can, please.
