Pro tip: if you're on a Mastodon instance running a relatively recent version (2.5.0 is the earliest I've been able to check):

* Go to <your instance>/filters (here, for example, it's elekk.xyz/filters
* Add New Filter
* Add the keyword "womenarestupid", click all four filter contexts, check "drop instead of hide", and uncheck "whole word".

This will remove these racist, misogynist, and now homophobic spam posts from your timelines and won't even leave a tombstone behind.

reminder that the guy #BryanLunduke that claimed mozilla is sponsoring "#antifa email" is marketing director at #purism.
He claimed that #mozilla would by this, support a domestic terrorist organisation. In fact they where supporting riseup.net a hosting collective focused on security.
see here for reffer: todon.nl/@paulfree14/100317193

When I was pointing him out on his errors and miss understanding of what antifa actually is, he claimed me doing libel. I gave him my word that he will be driven off from here, when he does not change his agenda.

...now he's back as marketing director of #purism. How to respond to this?

Yo. Mozilla heard us. Tbh, I'll willingly pay them since they'll use this to shake their fiscal reliance on search. mybroadband.co.za/news/interne

I love vague baking instructions: "Bake at 180-200C for 10-12 minutes."

That's a huge spectrum of bakingness! You might as well just say "Bake until baked"! Is this frozen garlic bread really so inconsistent that you can't even give me a concrete recommendation?!

>Expectations about industry. There would be automated deployment. Pull requests and code review. It was going to be glorious! Finally the code quality I had been longing for! ...I believed, everyone in the industry writes tests.
Ahem.
So imagine my surprise when I showed up at my first day on the job at a startup and found no tests at all. No tests in the frontend. No tests in the backend. Just, no tests.
Nada. Zip. Null. Undefined. NaN tests.
