As you may have guessed, I have abandoned my attempt to foment exodus from The Other Place to here. The lack of scale really is the issue for me.

No account deletion required, who knows maybe someday the exodus will happen for real.

If you're in Canada, the @CRTCeng@twitter.com and @CBC@twitter.com are STILL trying push for an insane internet tax and you should contact your MP to kill this nonsense off because what the hell is wrong with these people. https://act.openmedia.org/AxeTheInternetTax/
if you think "fake news," bots and all of the other online confusions of the past decade are best combatted with info lit curriculum, I hate to tell you, but you've bringing a pea shooter to gun fight https://twitter.com/i/moments/918978652418686976
