It’s also really concerning. Why are people nowadays finding every excuse they can to enable white supremacy? I’m feeling like I’m watching a train wreck in slow motion, and nobody else sees that the train is off the rails.

So #Tusky is actually only about $60 away from a yearly estimated budget of $2000, that's pretty amazing!

Thank you everyone for supporting the work we do.

Hey everyone, #Florence is looking for some people to look over our current CoC draft, and to make our "living document" into something usable.

If you'd like to contribute in such a way (this is a very good non-coder task), reach out to us here, or on our chat if you've joined there!

3-5 new eyes on these documents would be great!

I'm a terrible marketer. I am just not comfortable selling things.

But people might find the availability of :gayduck: pins relevant in their live at this time, so, hence. ↑

This version also adds the filtering for gab. This basically means that should gab ever launch a Mastodon instance on one of their domains (which I'm not fully convinced they'll ever manage to), it will not be possible to add it to Toot!, or log in to it.

Abolish transit police.

I just finished documenting a guy get tasered and tackled by like, eight officers for fare-skipping.

Fucking police.

When some dude responds to #Tusky's latest merge (for dealing with Ga-esque instances) with "It's an uninstall for me".

What even made you think we wanted you? I'm glad you're leaving. fuck off.

Lots of people who like Free Software are also ableist assholes who fetishize the process of development above the users who are supposedly more free, let's face it. Not everybody codes or has the time to contribute to every project composing an entire operating system, Mr. Stallman, and that doesn't mean you can blame them for it either.

I love Free Software, but the people behind it can be assholes a lot of the time.

Mastodon, circa 1934…

Me: Don’t support IBM, they’re selling mainframes and maintaining them for the Third Reich, don’t support Hugo Boss, they’re making uniforms for the Nazi, don’t support VW…

Folks: We know lots of great people who work at IBM, Hugo Boss, and VW that don’t agree with Hitler. What do you want them to do, quit? You need to pipe down and appreciate how they’re changing the system from within.
