Instance policy on April fools' day
Reminder that scholar.social will not be participating in April fools' day, and a preemptive warning to be judicious in your choice of "jokes"
🍍 Content warnings MUST be accurate and descriptive
🍍 "It was April fools' day" is not an excuse for violations of our Community Standards
🍍 If you do something sexist/racist/anti-queer, even if you do it "as a gag" or "ironically," you are still doing that *in real life,* and will be treated as such

It's interesting, the differentiation between bigoted nationalism and self-determination nationalism.
As a north English person, I can see that there is even crossover between the self-determination side of nationalism and bigoted nationalism, in the #Brexit issue, and the stories told. It's generational amnesia that allows lies such as that Britain can't/couldn't legislate for itself within the EU.
UC Santa Cruz just fired 54 TAs for participating in a wildcat strike, withholding fall quarter grades, and demanding a cost of living adjustment.
Fuck the UC.
