There is no way that "money laundering, computer hacking, conspiracy to traffic fraudulent identity documents, and conspiracy to traffic narcotics by means of the Internet." should lead to a /single/ life sentence. Let along multiple ones.

So I'd like to get a houseplant or two, and want to optimize for something that's easy to care for (and that ideally can be left for multiple weeks without watering), as well as being good at fixing carbon. What are some suggestions?

edgy leftists forget that if the only thing the revolution brings is an edge, then it's going to cut a lot of marginalized people when it gets here. and probably not the ones they think it will.

I am so sick of people weakening their rhetoric by doing ridiculous things.

If your summary of someone's ideas is, when one looks at their ideas in the original, not actually a summary of said ideas, it throws your entire essay into doubt.

If you can't stop calling the people you're arguing against names and railing about how bad they are when trying to debunk them, EVEN IF THEY ACTUALLY ARE BAD AND HAVE HARMED MANY PEOPLE, you just keep inviting your audience to come to their defense in ways that simply explaining their ideas, their actions, and why they are harmful doesn't.

I feel like the increase in political polarization has made people lose the knack of how to write a persuasive essay instead of an essay designed to make everyone already on ones band wagon clap and cheer.

Thinking about it, I won't be surprised if we eventually used a corn-based polymer in our money. At least then it'd be literally a cash crop.

I need to find some more Mastodon conlangers and language people to follow.

Hmm, you get a truncated 280-character Tweet with a link to the toot. I guess that's better than nothing (and a reasonable way to handle crossposted threads).

(I deleted the original toot from Twitter FYI.)

What happens when you try to crosspost a long piece of writing that would fit into one toot on Mastodon, but would be too long on Twitter? It would be nice if it were automatically split into two or more Tweets on Twitter, but I don't trust technology to do anything reasonable automatically. Let's just see what happens with this very long post that would have to be a thread on Twitter.

Shh! Don't tell anyone that the Twitter outage was part of our plan to make Mastodon the dominant microblogging platform!

Which isn't to say that nobody should ever discuss politics, only that I'd like the option of getting away from it for... honestly most of my internet experience (and without unfollowing people who I like, but who post a lot of political stuff).

Is anyone aware of instances that (a) ban discussion of politics, and (b) *actually* ban all political discussions, rather than just the ones the owners don't like?

The conlang mailing list has historically been very good about this, but so far I haven't found anything like that outside of that sphere.
