Poor freedom of speech. Its meaning has taken such a drubbing in the last few years.

I mean, originally, it was just "the government can't tell you what you can and can't say".

Then someone decided it meant "what you say should never have any consequences".

Then someone decided that it meant "nobody can deny you a soapbox".

Then someone decided that it meant "nobody can refuse to listen to you."

Now apparently it means "every program that could possibly access my soapbox MUST do so."

I think somebody enjoys fucking around with my local Google location data on behalf of our local neighborhood. I'm near UCR in Riverside, CA. It used to call my area "ใƒฆใƒ‹ใƒใƒผใ‚ทใƒ†ใ‚ฃใƒผ". Now it calls it "ะฎะฝะธะฒะตั€ัะธั‚ะธ".

Guess nobody else noticed that Snouts dot Online was not so Online for a while?

EAC Linux support has been "paused" and I have also heard that the effort to get wine/proton support established has halted.

I think I'm done giving Epic the benefit of the doubt.

Hot take: I never find a reason to not spread my own responses into other people's public posts. If you don't like that, there's a mute feature in this great thing.

Good news, everyone! We're killing God! I'm so proud of y'all right now. ๐Ÿ’š We just gotta be a good JRPG party and finish the job. ๐Ÿ’š We'll beat that boss fight in no time.

hey, like or boost this and i'll draw your avatar in MSpaint

@Ace I'm sorry for asking this, I didn't realize it was both an instance admin's requirement to verify their instance first, and that Mastodon 2.8 was the first version to allow stuffing the verification JSON file in the place where Keybase can verify it for the whole instance before any users can post usable proofs. I'll resume whatever I was doing elsewhere instead of bugging you about this. :D

@Ace Was there something involved with getting approved for listing with Keybase that Snouts has rejected, or is there any particular reason this instance isn't supported for proofs? I should probably ask the Keybase people about it before I ask you, but eh, I figure I'll send this second. First line was asking a Keybase channel.

If someone suggests that you should deploy ETS instead of TLS 1.3, they are selling you snake oil and you should run in the other direction as fast as you can

Alright, fuck it let's do this. If you got a patreon, ko-fi, liberapay or whatever, reply with it and I will boost. Cannot promise donations, but I will use what reach I have to help if I can. Let's actually build that support network I was talking about earlier.

I encourage others to boost this status and all the posts that end up beneath it to get as wide a spread as possible.

Not sure if this will even work, but I feel like I should at least try.
