A genius way to get white people to support anticapitalism is to tell them it's killed more animals than communism ever has

I'm sure Masto will be great for Tumblr exiles, but can I also recommend Dreamwidth?

It's seriously great, actually follows its principles, has always had fannish and lewd communities, can do longer-form things, has a way better comment system then Tumblr, and isn't going to be bought out by a big corporation.

He really touches the essence of the mystic life.

I never thought I'd see Microsoft throw in the towel on their browser engine. Or that, by the time it happened, I'd see that as a bad thing. Monoculture is still a problem, no matter who runs it. Firefox is going to be even more important in the future.
