Thanks to the generous contributions of two patrons ( http://patreon.com/MSPSocial ), my admin contributions have been freed up to pursue my next goal: contributing to (current and potential) organizations that are building community in the region.
As of March 1, MSP Social is now supporting @WedgeLIVE and Neighbors for More Neighbors (n4mn)!
For users of mspsocial.net — here is the MSPSocial Patreon link: https://www.patreon.com/mspsocial
Do not feel like you are under any obligation to contribute! You're welcome here whether or not you choose to support financially... In fact, posting and hanging out here is the best form of support. But anyone who can afford and wants to support this community effort through more than their presence is welcome to do so.
It could grow into something more, but it doesn't have to!

A decision of my employer was appealed by a party that has an axe to grind. The court severely limited the scope of the appeal today. This is a good result not just for my ego because stuff I wrote is now effectively law, but also because it's a good and right result for the public both as a matter of legal formalism and legal pragmatism.
