@fsf URL shorteners are useless and reduce transparency. Can you start using normal links instead?

Still salty that the name "Hacker News" was appropriated by capitalist blowhards

@sir but have you heard about my startup which uses highly advanced modernized flowchart initiatives to monetize the business impacts of fraudulent blockchain projects using our own proprietary in-house blockchain implementation?

master -> main 

aka the easiest change you can do from the comfort of your keyboard to fix racism

Thousands of collective hours wasted by activists who could have been motivated to do something meaningful and impactful instead

All that was ultimately done was to give GitHub a free social good headline that they can parade around while keeping things like ICE collaboration on the down-low

talk like a pirate day 

the public domain has been stolen from us by paid-for legislation and piracy is a form of civil disobedience

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.

Hey everyone, let's all laugh at and make fun of Voatz, a company that miserably failed a third party audit, skips basic protections and monitoring that even an itty bitty shitty MSP has, uses **wildcard certs lmao**, stores creds in MongoDB (after being told they can't store it in git), and STILL wants you to think they've made internet voting secure

@sir Wow, aerc fixes everything I didn't realize I hated about other mail clients. When I get around to figuring out how to configure GPG this will replace neomutt for me.

Why is it that the "frightening AI" news stories these days seem to be about AI that's frighteningly bad, rather than AI that's frighteningly good?

When stores refuse to take cash, they discriminate against people who lack access to payment methods like credit cards. Unbanked and underbanked people are disproportionately people of color. That’s why Congress must pass the Payment Choice Act. eff.org/deeplinks/2020/09/pass
