Cool, now I have Midland Credit Management bugging me, and now they're calling my dad. You know, the place that cold calls you, then asks you to hand them the numbers of your debit card, bank account, and routing number, to cement the deal where you pay off the full amount at $50/mo for the next 10 years.
It just occurred to me that I have sort of assumed everyone in the world had heard of 100 Demon Dialogues and I may be wrong.
It was Lucy Bellwood's 100-day project awhile back, a conversation between her and her Inner Critic. It became a book but all the comics are online at https://lucybellwood.com/100-demon-dialogues/ and every creative person (so, everyone) should at least read it, if not buy the book, because every single frame is RELATABLE.
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."
It is proven! I am kode54 on Keybase: https://keybase.io/kode54/sigchain#839ad8d23719dde4dc17f74ba1daca4d46f1edfe010fb4e43df3ac648646af010f
ruminating, abuse (-)
If there's any one person I'd love to see the reputation of destroyed (again) it's Jonas Kaerlev.
I regret not screenshotting and documenting everything that happened during the MaxOfS2D incident and downfall of SLAG Gaming. All the psychological abuse from Jonas and SLAG Gaming staff. All the edited posts. All the people banned for dissent. All I have now is memories and that site he set up to dox Maxime "MaxOfS2D" Lebled.
Don't buy Hat in Time, btw. Don't reward abusers.
money, financial help request, paypal.me link, boosts appreciated (----)
so uh, paypal is telling me that if I want to avoid standard and deferred interest on my next credit statement, I need to pay $510.97 by May 18.
This is more money than I get out of my SSI money a month.
So, as much as I hate doing this, can I have some help paying off my credit? I don't have enough income to pay it off and avoid deferred interest on the credit on my own. Any help is appreciated!
@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.
Computer programmer, also furry, possibly interesting person?
snouts.online is a friendly, furry-oriented, lgbtq+, generally leftist, 18+ sex-positive community that runs on mastodon, the open-source social network technology. you don't need a snout to join, but it's recommended!
