Twitter Removes Privacy Option, and Shows Why We Need Strong Privacy Laws

Personally I think ‘free speech’ is far less important than respect. If your on the #Fediverse and not on your own server be sure you read and agree with the instance guidelines you are on.

Remember, you are in someone’s digital home, respect the rules or get out and signup somewhere that’s more fitting..

USPol violence language 

Keep thinking of this scene in Robocop. "I want a recount! And no matter how it turns out, I want my old job back!"

Fluffy visitor today as I recover from the bike accident I had over the weekend:

"When the European version of the USA Today website removed ads and tracking scripts to comply with GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation), the size of its website decreased from 5000 to 500 kilobytes with no significant changes to the appearance of the site. This means that the updated, ad-free version of the website produced roughly 10 times less CO₂ on each load than the original."

This is why we need to make sure that we pick up the seats in #Georgia run-off elections. 

If you are in Georgia, spread the word, vote, and get others to vote. For the rest of us, sign up with the Ossoff and Warnock campaigns, donate if you can, and join Stacey Abrams' fair fight if you haven't.

Take a read through the comments: so many people can relate to the emotional reaction of Van Jones

CNN host goes viral breaking down on air over Biden’s victory

My best friend and soulmate was voting with the hospital for Biden and Harris. RIP November 6, 2020. On November 7, 2020, to hear on a day when we finally have good news of a new President and our first female Vice President! I know John wanted a new President, and maybe he played a part in that. He was definitely an angel here on earth - and now he is a true angel - watching over you in heaven. @cloutman

Does anyone have a #recommendation for a Mastodon server or other online community optimized for people with social anxiety?

Boosts welcome.



Pronunciation /sɪmpəˈθɛtɪk/
1 Feeling, showing, or expressing sympathy.
1.1 Showing approval of or favour towards an idea or action.

Mid 17th century (in the sense ‘relating to an affinity or paranormal influence’, as in sympathetic magic): from sympathy, on the pattern of pathetic.


I admit that I am not always sympathetic when someone else is sad. It is one of my many failings.

Mastodon political etiquette proposal 

It is the proper etiquette to mark CW's with + if positive message or - if negative message. When it comes to politics what is positive or negative depends on your political viewpoint.

I suggest we use:

<+ meaning positive from a left wing viewpoint
+> positive from a right wing viewpoint
