@sophia I love how many burly men are dedicated to keeping him safe from milk, and they still failed.
it's weird, there are elements of british identity i'm happy with despite britain's horrific crimes against the peoples of the world.
with my mix of british and indian genetics i obviously like a cup of tea. the comedy of eddie izzard, doctor who, and professor elemental are quite obviously british things that i take pleasure in. eccentricity, humour without cruelty and a strong sense of fair play. and those are not lost or diluted through immigration or being part of the eu. they are enriched.
@purism I support anyone who works to spread Linux and freedom of computing to the mainstream but I have to point out that your decision to remove the ability to report abusive behavior on your instance is a bad move.
Abuse reports are a basic function of this network and disregarding this tool means disregarding the community at large.
Without the ability to let you know when one of your members is being abusive your instance will end up being blacklisted and that would be unfair to your paying users.
I agree with @brainblasted on this one. If you can't take a stand against bigotry, sexism, white supremacy, etc on your platform, you're literally saying you don't give a shit about anyone's safety.
That's a hard pass.
If we're being real, what we're seeing is white folks trying to recreate their own little fiefdoms based almost completely on the behaviors and methodology of the platforms we are allegedly trying to get away from.
There is a lot of bad faith and straight up incompetent efforts being put out there that want to the benefit of the doubt because the slap FOSS on the door of their project.
And that's some bullshit that needs to be called out and stomped out.

- Be nice to everyone, not only to people you want to bang. That's not how building friendships works. And you need friends.
- If the person you're replying to didn't ask a question, don't explain something. That's how you avoid being accused of mansplaining.

Dear science writers,
Stop enabling evil. The men targeting Katie Bouman, who was a team lead on the Event Horizon Telescope project that produced that image of the black hole at the center of M87, are not "trolls". Trolls want to get a rise out of people. These men are not just trying to get a rise out of her or anyone else.
They are misogynists. They hate women and can't stand the idea of a woman being successful in science.
Call them what they are.
Traditionally at Halloween there is a thin veil between this life and the afterlife, which is why spirits could pass between the two realms. By choosing October 31st the EU Council are probably giving the UK a subtle coded message.
I'm looking forward to some suitably ghoulish cartoons on the subject.
