Welp, I tried but Mastodon is just not working out for me. I don't really use it and per their email today, they don't really appreciate me spamming my tweets over without engaging on here. I've disabled my cross-poster. If you want me, I remain @seldo on Twitter, and I wish you all well.

Trans America shares with the Golden Gate Bridge the quality of looking like a special effect even when you see the real thing in person.

Getting a lot of replies saying it's only the free version of Slack that's banned, but really that's just saying that Slack's business model is its competitive advantage, and people will use it even if it's less safe.

2. Actual existing children: fuck it, keep 'em in cages.
