The account of the Assam Police has been suspend from this instance.

We decided that we will not welcome cops on this instance, and we encourage the rest of the fediverse to do the same.

Following multiple reports, we decided that it's more important that our community feels safe and in security, than to be a platform for official communication.

Thank you ! :trebuchet:

LGB, Suicide mention (+) 

I'm reading a bunch of old pulp adventure stories by Harold Lamb, from the early 1920s. It gets a bit samey but it's interesting to compare them with Robert Howard, who was writing in what's clearly the same genre about a decade later. Lamb's a better writer in most ways, but he lacks Howard's vivid energy and conviction, which makes him less interesting... and he's less melodramatic too.

(He's also noticeably less racist than Howard, though certainly not free of it. Lots of orientalist tropes.)

(I should also probably clarify that I thought the discourse about not nagging people for CWs was good. They’re a courtesy and no one has a right to demand them. But still...)

(I should probably clarify that this is new Indian users sharing news stories and not trolls flooding the timeline with gore - but still...)

We’ve had a lot of discourse recently about not nagging people for content warnings, but it really would be nice to to get CWs on reports of suicide, “mob lynching”, and/or pictures of dead bodies, all of which I’ve had on the federated timeline this week.

Death to Machocracia 

Wrote up all my nasty thoughts about eXistenZ (seriously, all 3.5k words of them), plus lots of pictures --

ukpol, Jeremy Corbyn, humourous 

I still like Amaroq’s interface better than other apps I’ve tried, but it’s not being actively developed and since the last Mastodon update it doesn’t seem to let me add followers any more :-(

I know we’re in the age of sincerity and all that, but the sheer number of Very Earnest Takes I’ve seen on “ok boomer” at this point is giving me cravings for a little irony.
