List of gab instances
Do boost and block.
Nazi dont need a platform and certainly not ours
Funkwhale, security, review wanted
If you have some knowledge in web security and Content Security Policy, would you mind having a look at https://dev.funkwhale.audio/funkwhale/funkwhale/merge_requests/826 ?
This is an attempt to harden the security of the web UI via a CSP (and some additional HTTP headers) and to reduce the attack surface in case of exploits.
The think is white folks think if they mimic the posture of diversity and inclusion it will happen on its own, which is false. It takes real work.
And you can ask any of my mods who I talk with on a regular basis, that this work will take to you some deep places personally and have you re-evaluate you own personal truths about how you view the world. Those are HARD conversations.
And white people in particular exist in a culture that violently resists personal growth at all costs.
linux window manager question, boosts ok
is there a stacking (not tiling, tiling window managers confuse us and bewilder us) window manager that we can use with XFCE, that makes it so each display/monitor has separate workspaces?
something that would let us do things like:
- only change workspaces on one monitor
- swap literally everything between two monitors at once
- cycle stuff around with convenient hotkeys but like, mouse support is also nice and good
ideally it shouldn't fuck with XFCE's existing panels or anything besides like, window decoration (but themeable stuff is a plus)
an actual goddamn gui config would be good, even if it's a separate app by someone else.
You can follow the progress of this project via these accounts:
Its first pre-release (v0.0.1.0) is based on Mastodon 2.9 and makes some cool minor changes. I'm looking forward to what will come next!
instance administration, taking a hard line against fascists
given gab's history of hosting the most violent of the far right, including actual mass-murderers, it is our view at snouts.online that blocking them individually is not a sufficient response should they choose to try to federate with the rest of the 'verse. we believe that any instance owner that would knowingly subject their users to a platform with gab's history is either negligent of their users or fascist-adjacent themselves.
CTA ATTENTION ALL FEDIVERSE ADMINS:
On July 4th Gab is coming on to the Fediverse by switching over to Mastodon on their servers.
This means that you can shut the door on them today by preemptively have them fully suspended from your instances. So your users do not have risk getting harassed by any of their users, and they from the start be blocked off from major portions of the Fediverse.
Thank you for your consideration and
Florence feature idea:
@maloki This would also fix a big problem with single-user instances, where it's hard to know which are "known-bad" servers because for completely understandable reasons most big community instances don't disclose who they are blocking.
Now here's a spicy take. The abundance of autism-diagnosed trans people doesn't mean you have to be afraid you're faking being trans if you're also autistic.
Correlation is not causation. Even if it were, you're still feeling these emotions, and you're ultimately the only reliable source for information on your own identity.
Rock it, and don't let gatekeepers poke holes in your sails.
I don't want to put this guy on blast because he actually was pretty civil, but one of the arguments I make when people are like, "You should convince Nazis to stop being Nazis" is that _they_ are free to do that. I have enough trouble with my own shit to try to fix Nazis. If you "disagree" with them then why are you arguing with me to accept them instead of arguing with *THEM* to stop being Nazis?
The response was, "I would, but I've never come across any because they're banned" and like... that was so telling. These guys (and they're usually guys, sorry) just never encounter these people THEMSELVES so they think they don't exist.
broke vs poor
broke is temporary, poor is a life of fear
I'm getting really tired of talking to broke people who wear the badge of poverty and then take it off a month later because they got theirs
it would take hundreds of thousands of dollars for someone like me to not to be in poverty, and that's most likely never going to happen even if I somehow manage to find steady income
the poverty hole can't be filled with small amounts when you literally have nothing
broke vs poor
broke is having to give up buying new video games for a month, poor is skipping meals every week to afford medication
broke is waiting for your next paycheck so you don't tap into your savings, poor is not having a savings account
broke is moving in with your parents to save money, poor is not having anywhere to go
broke is borrowing cash, poor is asking for cash you can't pay back
broke is knowing you'll be okay, being poor is knowing you won't

Yes, bitch, all of it! https://redd.it/blrilm
Yo, this is a completely serious comment. And this person expects me to DEBATE with them.
LOL, white people are a trip, man.
Ha, no pile ups, please. I just want people to see how even progressive white people care more about the appearance of caring about social issues rather than actually doing something about it.
Yes, it's a pattern. And mind you this is right after I comment where I talk about how I just go profiled.
