Unhealthy eating habit 

Lately, committing that I'm going to feed myself pretty much guarantees that I turn into a gremlin and ignore the concept of eating until I am forced to eat whatever crumbs and sauce packets I have on hand.

transphobia and CWs 

Also, if you know someone in your community is transphobic, maybe confront them directly without amplifying their transphobic garbage?

transphobia and CWs 

Transphobia fucking sucks. Don't share transphobic articles without CWs. Don't be that person.

For a community, you *have* to ban early and ban often, and defederate early and often.

As an admin, it's your job to protect the ✨vibes✨ of your space, to promote community, and to remove elements that are toxic or harmful.

A service doesn't work the same way. It isn't attempting to create (or promote) a specific vibe, it's just *there*. You make of it what you will, find what you will, and (as an end user) block what you will.

The admin "just" makes the service available.

Basically, my standard for moderating people on other instances is: if I think you are more likely to annoy someone on my instance than to add value (e.g., you reply to random strangers contentiously or to make low-value contributions like "I don't know what this thread is about"), I'm just going to suspend you.

It's a big fediverse and nobody here is likely to be deprived of anything by not seeing specifically you.

Freeway expansion: No expense spared
Transit users: duct tape infrastructure.

Giving me life to suspend chuds lurking on the flagship instance.

Today's lucky jagoff is a musk hugger who thinks that the free speech of right wingers is a matter of concern and who randobombs threads about CWs to say they don't know what CWs are.

whining vaguely about poor cw practice 

@LilyVers few things make me angrier on here than "this is too IMPORTANT to cw", as though CWs are just for unimportant things

Do I want to be on the same train car as Coughing Guy? Hmmm no

CW's, use 'em folks. They're an established part of the culture here, and if you don't CW your CWables folk will unfollow/block. CW your stuff, yes even that stuff, even moreso if it's important to you that people boost it.

Cars 

There's just an abandoned car tire resting upright in the center lane of Lake Street, threatening to become a rolling hazard and there really isn't a better visual metaphor for the historic decisions that have given us present-day Lake Street.

Tech gripe 

Google instead of letting me install Google pay and go through all of the steps to set it up on my phone and THEN tell me I can't use it, and jump through 50 hoops to find a list of supported phones so see if my phone is NOT on it, how about you use the power of computer programming to run that check and tell me up front?

I'm no computer rocket scientist but I bet you have sone smart cookies who could figure out how.
