How utterly fucked up does one have to be in the head to believe that being allowed to say racist shit without being criticized is #freedom, but leaving your war-torn country where you're literally tortured and killed for speaking your mind isn't.

The main misconception about defaults is that many users don't change them, because they assume that the developers put thought into the defaults. But the developers don't put ideal defaults there, because they assume the user knows better what they need and change the defaults.

This leaves us with bad defaults that aren't changed. 🤷

Do NOT talk to cops. The only things you say to a cop are:

1. Am I free to go? (Leave if yes)
2. I am exercising my right to silence and to speak to a lawyer.

Then you shut the fuck up.

I am aware that I have some degree of following in places which tolerate softcore bigotry (by which I mean the normalization of "harmless" bigoted in-jokes and satire), and that many of those places sometimes think of me as one of their own, someone who "gets it".

I want to re-iterate that I don't find those communities and those behaviors acceptable, and I think they often represent the first in a series of dominos which can develop people into really hateful ideologies and tragic behaviors.

Don't forget that I am a staunch leftist, anti-capitalist, and devout participant in free and open software and culture. Think critically about what that actually represents before using me to reinforce the cognative biases of your in-group.

If that gives you pause, you might want to critically re-evaluate the values that your community is exposing you to, and consider if you should be being exposed to something healthier.

Thanks. I'm always here to listen to you in my DMs.

Everybody's freaking out that fediverse apps are being removed from Google, and I'm all over here like "Good."

This is no different than Microsoft, lol. Two large companies still getting to access hundreds of thousands (if not millions) of people’s information. This anti-China shit is annoying given how these two operate. theverge.com/2020/8/18/2137322 (v2.jacky.wtf/post/36a3dcef-fdd)

Mozilla Google budget screaming 

Something is just wrong here... Mozilla just extended its deal with Google (making it the numero uno search engine) for something like 400 million dollars PER YEAR. For the next three years.

That is 1.2 BILLION dollars from 2020 to 2023.

If you cannot run a freaking NON-PROFIT on 400 MILLION dollars PER YEAR that means:

a) You are paying your executives too much.
b) You don't know how to manage a non-profit.
c) All of the above.
