I just don't know how I am supposed to believe in a party that treats its constituents with this level of disrespect.

And THEN they took it as permission to add me to their email mailing list 😑 πŸ’₯

Then when I sent a request to remove me from all postal mailings via their website, this was the post-submission page.

I don't know how the DCCC got my name, but they mailed me a fake survey so noxious it made me want to vote against the Democrats out of sheer spite

Hi it's me from the past, checking in on y'all in 2021 or so when you're complaining that Slack is so horrible and why did we cede all of our networks to them. Anyhow, just time traveled on by to say "I told you so". Bye now!

I'm delighted to see alt-text integrated natively in Mastodon! Every major platform has forsaken the semantic web, but oh look, actual people still care!

screen reader and masto meta accessibility psa 

oh oh yeah. @alt_text exists, if you follow, the bot will follow back and remind you to add an image description anytime you post an image without one. good for building the habit!

@phryk - I think we agree.

My point is that *Mastodon* is not a culture. Your instance/community is.

Fascists, etc, will become part of the Fediverse and use Mastodon. Some instances will block them and defederare. Others will follow and federate.

Mastodon, et. al., is great NOT because of a lack of bad actors, but because of granular user and instance control.

@jmichaelward @ramsey They mean the bit where it says 'Describe for the visually impaired'. You can click on it and enter a description, which will show up as alt text.

I mistimed my basil planting and it climaxed before the tomatoes were ripe. I could make a saucy analogy out of all this but I will spare us that experience, you're welcome

ferns are ancient. back then they didn't have much memory (it was expensive) so they were generated procedurally. hence the way they look

I think I shall hold (if not practice) the same stance on this as on email: we should all control personal domain names as our best form of instance independence. I would love to be a part of this community but toot from a canonical iangreenleaf.com identifier. I would especially love to do that without sysadminning my own Mastodon server.
