Awareness post: there is an instance on fedi called 'dolphin.town' where you can only post 'EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE'

my experience on this dying world has been made richer through this knowledge, and may yours be also

For the last many years, my Twitter stream became so angry, because Twitter itself became so angry. There was a lot to be angry about! But once a community becomes about shouting, it's hard to do anything else there. I don't want that to be my mindset here, so I'm purposely trying not to use this space for shouting. Which means I'm kinda struggling to remember what I used to type into boxes like this before I was angry all the time.

Today is #TransDayofRemembrance when we honor and remember trans lives taken by violence. How horrifying that a deadly attack upon the LGBTQ+ community in Colorado Springs should occur right before this solemn day.
Hate isn’t born in us. It is taught. It must end.
This starts with our political leaders, who must cease their cynical attacks against our community before another attack occurs.
Call out the hate. Remind them of its consequences. Hold them to account.

Mourn the dead.
Fight like hell for the living.

Hi, I'm Scorp Vandeporp. You might remember me from other websites, like @spaceninja on Twitter, or @spaceninja on CodePen, or @spaceninja on GitHub, or spaceninja.com

I'm the kind of nerd who writes code for a living, runs a long-term D&D campaign, and recently started a UFO podcast.

I'm currently on a social media hiatus, but while I was eating popcorn watching Elon burn things to the ground, I figured I should get set up over here. 👋
