Take too hot for anywhere but here: apoliticality is a privilege.
If you want to "keep politics out of this space" then you live with the conditions that lofty political decisions will have no impact on your life. You don't live a life where the whims of some talking head can determine weather or not you have a place to sleep tomorrow, or when the next time you'll get a meal will be. To be apolitical is to have no concern for the goings-on of the status quo, which means that it benefits you.

Ah yes, I would also like to uncritically repeat online moral panics and receive publications from large publishers in return.
@oneironaut If you're affiliated with a university, they probably have purchased access to a specific tool that you could also use.
GPDR lists "philosophical beliefs" among protected categories of data so this toot should be protected
@ghost_bird Sure! It was a joke so it MIGHT not be very accurate legal information...

@mplouffe I would prefer that over a random list of "officially approved" software, some of which I've never heard about before. I'm guessing someone at the university own some of the company stock.
I'm trying to complete a job training on handling personal data and the course writing is positively Kafkaesque.
"Mary knows that the university has published guidelines for this specific thing in the web address https://www.university.lol/efalkjefawe/long/address/a-language-code-i-guess/safety/safety-and-personal-records/records-for-safety."
Yeah, I'm sure I'll remember that address after finishing this training.
@Zag I just closed it quickly. I think I'm over it.
I updated my website and you should now be able to download all my published texts directly. No need to hunt through different repositories anymore.
@albin I've used Linux for about a decade, but honestly, I have no idea. Apparently not bad enough that I would have noticed.
@Cyborgneticz Even if you go for this route, I suggest using a manager for all the texts you collect. My Zotero library currently has 2336 texts and without a manager with great search it would be impossible to find that one text about that one thing I kinda remember reading at one point.
@albin I run Elementary on one of my laptops and its pretty great. The touchpad on that laptop is not great, so it's hard to evaluate that part, but otherwise everything just works (including some of the problems you had).
