Lmao "with one another" in German is literally miteinander ("withoneanother")

any economic system that assumes most people don't intrinsically want to do meaningful work is empirically false and should not be taken seriously

@anomaly i might have agreed before account migration was added. but instances aren't dictatorships when borders are open. users are only beholden to the dictates of a top admin if they so choose -- when they disagree with the top admin's decisions they can simply yeet off to another instance

imo top admins aren't dictators, they're just delegates responsible for day-to-day instance-level housekeeping

it's not a 100% perfect implementstion yet, but it's ok and it's getting better

Cussing; AI in human research 

alas, for Wheaton but it was not harassment. it was a bofa joke. and lo, the people did scorn and mock him for such were his just deserts

Scraping 

every so often someone sees the fediverse and goes "wow, I can't believe there's so much illicit content on there" because they see a lot of content warnings

which is like seeing someone's email inbox has a lot of non-blank subject lines in it and going "wow I can't believe you're a massive criminal"

It's also nice that all the conclusions in the paper are wrong because they start with a mistaken premise that content warnings mean that a post is "inappropriate".

there are not too many people
there are too many rich people
that’s your fucking resource problem

hey, y'all youngsters out there refusing to let the status quo turn you cynical af about everything and anything?

you're punk af and I πŸ’œ you. thanks for sprucing up the place.

scandalous, inappropriate content
