Moderation, nonsense 

:funkwhale: I've started a Loomio thread for the abuse audit of the @funkwhale software. This is where we go through and try to find all the ways it can be used for evil and then all the ways we can attempt to stop or deter that behavior. We welcome the help! 🐋

wikipedia feels the need to deadname all trans people but fails to inform the public that bill wurtz's full name is William James Wurtz II

Fascists/racists and dog whistles 

As @davatron5000 says, I don't like playing cat and mouse with my privacy. At the same time, I'd prefer to run open-source software rather than iOS. And I've used Android since the HTC Dream.

But using Android without Google apps is just *so* hard. Not only do I have to invoke weird terminal sorcery every six months, but the damn thing doesn't even work very well – I haven't had working push notifications or GPS in a year. Time to throw in the towel?

Deadline reports that James Gunn has been rehired for GotG3, after Gunn was genuinely contrite and Disney realized that Cernovich is a fuckstick:

am: turns on Primal Heart

hour later: "hmm I should put on something else now"

pm: still playing Primal Heart

Why am I kinda excited for this?

Tbh, I want this to be something that within my OS; I have payment info stored and if I go into Plasma Discover, elementary's App Store or like doing a checkout on the Web, it just say "Pay" and uses _that_.

That's where the future of digital payments should have gone - my computer/device determines what works and how it works. This + allowing me to specify how to pay for things (use my BTC 🤢 or my business banking account? maybe pull from Venmo?)

The sheer number of people on Facebook with their real names, photos, locations and workplaces on their profile who are happy to throw abuse at other people kinda disproves the argument that it’s online anonymity that causes abusive behaviour

**'Rule of law' in the Trudeau era**

"A major scandal has hit Trudeau's cabinet and is destroying the Liberal Party's 'progressive' credentials."

If last year was the tipping point, this year the final shoe dropped: With Nielsen numbers to boot, hip-hop has proven it needs the Grammys less than the Grammys need it.
