People are so disillusioned by the internet. There are a few people with Nazi profile pics so we're acting like WWII is happening all over again.

The small minority of "white nationalists" actually marching in the street with torches are a joke. They've always been there. They're just getting more attention now that we're giving it to them.

"See, we told you white supremacy is real! And by not agreeing with me you're one of them!"

Leftist fearmongering is strengthening them. Saying conservatives are racist is strengthening them.

Our political opponents are still are friends, they've just had different experiences than us. Don't laugh at your uncle's racist jokes, but don't shame him either. Ask him questions. Respect that he's had different experiences than you. Tell him how your experiences have shaped your views. Be honest about things that are objectively and anecdotally true. You have more in common than you think.

End #CallOutCulture. The internet has made us so much better, but also so much worse. We need to learn how to be friends again through this unfamiliar and dehumanizing interface. I hope we're evolved enough for it.

@lunduke A good idea, as long as it's not Proprietary Image Manipulation Program

Is forking the "GNU Image Manipulation Program" in order to give it a "less offensive name" a good idea or bad idea?


I’m still super in love with the newer Adwaita theme. It makes default GNOME look so beautiful, and I haven’t felt the need to use a theme since 3.32 launched with it.

god you're pathetic

If anyone wants to know the best alternative fediverse sites besides gab, just take a look at the blocklist. Lots of great suggestions!

I launched a new blog this week. It's stupidly fast, uses zero external JS or CSS resources, is responsive, and supports modern features many sites don’t like dark style support. But Google just emailed me saying they might deprioritize it on Google because it doesn’t use AMP.

When you say "scientists believe" it is about the consensus of the current academic community. That does not mean the consensus is correct. A few years ago academic consensus in cosmology was that the expansion of the Universe was slowing, that consensus is now believed wrong.

In social sciences, where there are many more confounds than just Dark Energy and Dark Matter, consensus can shift even quicker.

The *official* :inkscape: forum has launched! Come start a conversation with fellow beginners, artists, designers, makers, educators, and more!

i dont like this admin's political opinion so:

this guy just argued with me so:

this guy is not blocking some domain i blocked for no reason so:

that's it. that's most fedi admins in a nutshell.

Fediverse meta, uncertainty 


I don't think that everyone of them acts the way you described. I have no problem in interacting with most of people, anyway.

I'm by no means a "free speech extremist", but I don't see any particular problem in federating with It's sad to see many instances preventively blocking, which is also the largest node on the , just because there are some assholes. But whatever, I see there are some snowflakes which easily get hurt by random words coming form online strangers. I understand.

No, I don’t want any nazi symbols or flags on my instance and I should tell you why.

My granddad has fought in the war against the Germans too free our country. He has told me some thing from that time and trust me it was BAD.

I’m all for the whole remember thing because something like that simply can not happen again, ever. But it’s a whole different story when your waving the nazi flag, I don’t want that.

If you have troubles with that I can simple say, you know where the logout button is.

Ciao #Fediverse!
