Pinned ping

I "like" posts to show support.

emoji reactions would be really bad for me, because I'd need to choose an emoji that best describes my feelings. if you know anything about autistic ppl, you can probably see why that's a problem.

if I like your sad post, that's not me enjoying that you're sad, it's me showing I care.

if you post about a cool thing on the other hand, I like it because I think it's cool too.

thank you.

Here are two ways to boost with CW. One's very bad for accessibility (opens a new window, closes mastodon client, etc), the other is very good for accessibility (opens in the mastodon UI itself). I would prefer if more ppl did the latter.

Doing it the "good" way also respects boost visibility settings! (did you know you can hide boosts from your home feed? it's behind the "show settings" button on the home feed column!)

I interact with "strangers'" toots because I still have that unhealthy thing where I just try to read everything on my home feed, so I avoid following them.

we need to dismantle(?) the power structures used by capitalists, including the way free and open source software currently works.

New Patreon post about GAnarchy, explaining some of my motivation and inspiration: patreon.com/posts/26160269 (CW: mild politics, masto drama, etc)

Short answer: it's a tool for pushing back against BDFLs.

white ppl are like salt: white, and too much of it kills you.

(can we make this like a tumblr thread where ppl boost and reply with their own stuff to it?)

I'm glad my parents have no idea how to use mastodon.

and if they did, they'd get quickly suspended.

maybe there's something I don't quite understand here, but, shouldn't I be able to run ELFs straight from env vars/non-filesystem locations?

news websites should get rid of their old links and move them to an archived location. additionally "archived" should be added to the title.

it's 2019, why don't we have federated network attached storage (NAS) yet.

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.

Love,
Noëlle

are there "unlocked account blocklists" yet?

it's 2019, why don't we have federated CDN yet.
