To all Mastodon-admins: seems like there's an attack on all instances by troll accounts. Servers get slow because of it.
They use thousands of subdomains of My 'pull' queues skyrocketed.

I now blocked the domain and all is back to normal. Please check if you're hit too.

Strikes should always be legal. Paid sick leave should be a requirement and there shouldn't be a limit to it. For smaller corporations, the government could help pay for sick leaves, but larger corporations can easily take the cost if they just cut a tiny portion of the billionaire CEOs salaries.

The decision to leave vs. stay at the fowl place shouldn't be framed as one about ceding ground because it's not— it's about complicity in proving a bigoted billionaire's business thesis.

That thesis is simply that there are enough individuals and organizations willing to remain despite rampant racism, antisemitism, and other expressions of hate.

Elon is banking on holdouts because he needs them to get advertisers to bend to his will. Staying on Twitter *is* ceding ground *and* fueling hate.

Uspol, president scab 

Watching American alphabet news agents spinning Scab in chief fucking over rail workers is so fucking infuriating, but they're so desperate and transparent about it I'm sure most people can see thru it.

"Biden acted to prevent quippling strikes... The economy is doing great actually... Econonsts say Raising wages will increase inflation... The ECONOMY"

The feds could have easily intervened to give rail workers paid leave. I hope rail workers strike anyway, make "the economy" scream. Maybe a real general strike can come out of this not just a pretend one.

BREAKING: US president Joe Biden unveils plan to "destroy" rail workers, says he recognises their rights only insofar as they do not threaten the landed classes.

discussion of how to recognise queer phobia (a guide for cishets that may trigger LGBT people) 

Ok, so recognising queer phobia:

Anything that says we're generally a threat: against marriage or especially against children.

Anything about LGBT people being "groomers" or particularly focussed on Children in an unwholesome way.

The idea that we're failing at gender or otherwise aren't the genders we say we are. The idea that we have ulterior motives for our gender identities. That we're not real, or authentic.

The idea that our relationships are less valid or valuable. The assertion that we're unlovable.

The assertion that we are (or aren't) of a particular race, class, ethnic group or whatever. The idea that we come from outside our own cultures. That we're somehow "exotic".

The idea that young people are more experienced or grown up than their peers. That adults are less grown up.

The assertion that we are all victim or perpetrators of abuse.

What is actually true is that we're an extremely diverse group of people with every kind of background - no better or worse than anybody else.

A lot of Mastodon instance admins are either getting their first hosting bill or getting a very increased bill from extreme growth and usage. Some may be experiencing bill shock.

Please make sure your paying/supporting them!

Twitter was free because you were the product. Mastodon doesn't work this way.

Many instances list a patreon or donation links on their about page.

Nintendo just cancelled a major Smash Bros tournament scene (Smash World Tour) because they could. They decided to not give them the license to host these tournaments. And this is exactly why the EUs decision to not classify esports as sports is correct. Until games are in the public domain, they cannot be considered sports.

Also, this is not the first time Nintendo has put their corporate dicks in the face of a major tournament. They did so for EVO as well this year.

Fuck Nintendo. I love their games, but seriously, fuck Nintendo.

Antisemmitism, Kanye West, Alex Jones, Nazis 

What the absolute fuck is going on with Kanye West? ... Like, what the actual fuck?! When even some of the most altright conspiracists like fucking Alex Jones have to distance themselves from his off-the-walls statements, it's just ... holy fucking shit ...

Okay, so there's a used PinePhone going for just 50€ ... My mum mentioned that they still had more budget left for christmas and they didn't know what to get me ... hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

I was considering buying a used OnePlus 6 on a whim to run postmarketOS on it. Then I looked more deeply into the current limitations and I was like "not quite ready yet" ... I am impressed by the low price of used ones tho, ranging from 120€ to 180€. Maybe one day I'll be able to escape the iOS/Android duopoly ... One day ...

Intellectual property is a crime against humanity. It crushes culture, stifles cooperation, and alienates creative laborers from each other.
