@ewankeep @KthulhuKat absolutely. We can have safe spaces for people who need them if we create an environment based on respect and empowerment instead of raw engagement and outrage.

@KthulhuKat @ewankeep to be fair they should be allowed to have their instances, and it should be easier for us to avoid them. Denying them space doesnt stop them. Letting them have it but keeping it separate allows interested people to monitor it and the rest to avoid.

I know this is going to seem weird, but thankyou for posting this. Its like when bird site used to be good. Great soup btw! Show more

@jordicusmaximus this sounds like people are not very good at insulting you.

Ahh the firework twats are out. I do nit like fireworks.

@jordicusmaximus not wanting to sound judgy, but i hope you thanked them for the label ;)

@jordicusmaximus it is a good platform. Needs a little user love and discovery could be better but its worth it.

@jordicusmaximus i filtered that out ages back. The problem is i still see the worst of the left, and when you only see half of the shouting it looks weird.

@ericvonfoerster it's turning into some kind of outrage factory. I see it spilling into here as well on the federated feed.

I think that's the thing. I want a space that isn't filled with political ugliness and constant screaming, whether from the alt-shite, virtue signalling or never trump crowd. Is that too much to ask for?

Is there a space for information security peeps here? A place where we can just shitpost security memes, laugh about the sorry state of the world and occasionally do cool shit(tm)?

The last week or so I've found t'other place has really been getting me down. I think twitter's become a truly ugly place in general. I've blocked a lot out with filters and account blocks, but I'm finding it really depressing, which sets my cardiac stuff off.

heck! remember when you were EXPLORING what it means to connect socially over the internet? how there were no expectations except something new and new people?

hold on to that feeling. don't get upset when one thing doesn't bring you what another has. the whole point isn't to find something "as satisfying" or "better. those still imply goals. based off past measurements.

@lilprince don't get me started on that show. It's terrible. Half the shit on it didn't happen.

@m0n5t3r @cynicalsecurity @stevelord

It occurs to me that those power banks that don't behave like UPSs could be coerced into doing so with a couple transistors, a diode, and perhaps a large capacitor to keep voltage up while the switchover is happening...

I’ve been up since 6, am stuck on a crammed train and I’m surrounded by miserable people in suits. What fresh hell is this?
