"Poly" v. "Polya" tag request 

"poly" gets used by Polynesian people, who don't really have a good way to shorten it, otherwise

It would be cool if us Polyamorous people could start to shift toward "polya", since we've got an easy second option

Consent is... 

Consent is knowing you have a choice
Consent is knowing you can change your mind
Consent is being asked if you want to start
Consent is being asked if you want to continue
Consent is knowing you can say no
Consent is knowing they will respect your decision
Consent is having options
Consent is being respected for who you are, not what you have

If you want the bundle and can't manage the cost right now, I'll gift you a copy

protest equipment 

I've been seeing people suggest "bump liners" for protests. They're plastic and foam liners that you can insert into a regular hat to give it a little bit of impact protection

Not enough to stop a serious blow, or get an ANSI rating, but enough to cushion the hit a little

The major benefit being that you reduce your visibility to others (especially cops) while still getting some protection

More emergencies, Internet Archive 

The Internet Archive had been experimenting with a digital lending library, and when covid severely limited public libraries, the IA started allowing unlimited checkouts (which essentially mean they allowed piracy of their book scans)

This was probably a huge mistake, but now four of the biggest publishers are suing the IA

Losing this means archive.org goes down
