Le masse popolari in Europa non sono contro le masse popolari in Africa.
Quelli che vogliono sfruttare l'Africa sono gli stessi che sfruttano l'Europa. Abbiamo un nemico comune.

Thomas Sankara - Discorso sul debito all'OUA 1987

Communists must never separate themselves from the majority of the people or neglect them by leading only a few progressive contingents in an isolated and rash advance, but must take care to forge close links between the progressive elements and the broad masses. This is what thinking in terms of the majority means.

    - Mao Zedong, “The Role of the Chinese Communist Party in the National War” (October 1938)

Pawoo needs to deal with spambot accounts that appear to be linked to a Japanese porn business.

Or be excluded from the fediverse altogether.

Beginners Guide to De-centering the USA in Your Writing:
• Prefer metric and SI units.
• Specify all units, including currency (“$5.00 USD” instead of just “$5.00”).
• Use “USA” as a descriptor instead of “American” when you actually mean “from the USA” and not “from North America or South America”.
• Don’t assume your experiences are universal.

Thanks to @emacsomancer for forwarding to me this article about "demetrification" of social media (not showing like counts, follower counts, etc) and how dramatically user behavior is changed when we do expose these things.

Damn, the new release looks pretty slick. Can't wait for it to come to Manjaro repos.

We are pleased to announce the immediate availability of GNOME 3.34, "Thessaloniki"! This release marks six months of intense effort from our developers, designers, and contributors, and we are thrilled to finally make it available to you all 😊

GNOME 3.34 is finally here, and like every new release, it's quite exciting to me. I really love the GNOME community and its software.

So, congratulations @gnome!

I promised you to look up the trilemma I heard while listening to that podcast. Well it appeared they were referring to the impossible trinity...

Oggi qualcuno s’accorge con preoccupazione che la lotta al fascismo sulle piazze virtuali é nelle mani di Facebook, Google e poche altre multinazionali. Ma povere stelline: in realtà già avete affidato TUTTA la vostra comunicazione virtuale a queste società

#GMail is harmful to e-mail ecosystem; its antispam blocking policy matches too many valid messages as spam.

It blocked LastPass email leak warning email, because it contained "a link" to a leaked site.

It blocked an e-mail from goverment agency addressed directly to me.

It discriminates all non-gmail servers, and it's pretty much impossible to own a private SMTP server these days, because GMail will classify everything as spam.

It's not how e-mail should work.

Consider dropping GMail.
