I know that this might not be a popular opinion on my particular instance, but I would urge @SDF to block their domains when moves to Mastodon.

Torba has no self-awareness to see how pathetic it looks that his master race ass is incompetent at making a working website so he has to resort to using software made by a Jew instead.

In all the power and reliability of modern computer systems, sometimes I wish we still had more fancy, physical, oddball hardware like you saw with Sony's MSX lineup or the old RISC workstations. Here's a fun what-might-have-been take on MSXen in particular.
