There's no block, and the list is up to date
If you click through to their profile on their domain, they have posted exactly twice, and the last time was Oct 2
If you didn't follow them until after their last post, and no one on this instance was following them, then it would appear that they have no posts if you are using the web app
This is the default behaviour of Mastodon, to not back-fill profiles
As an avid supporter of #OpenScience 🔬, #OpenSource 💻, and #OpenEducation 🎓, I figured it's about time to join #Mastodon. I'm currently a #Fulbright Fellow teaching English at Oranim College in Israel. Just finished up my MA at the University of Texas at Austin in May and am looking forward to starting my PhD next year in the field of second language acquisition with an emphasis on educational technology. Location for that is TBD (applications are my life at the moment).
@daviding Hey sorry to have to nag you like this, but I'm going to have to ask you to click "Delete & re-draft" on this post, and put it up again without the bit.ly links
Shortened links are against the scholar.social Community Standards
Please review them here:
Please also be sure to add a CW to political posts
New users hello :) Show more
(Our actual policy on cross-posting software is actually a bit more nuanced. You can have them, they just can't post as Public.)
(Also, while we have an especially dim view of actual Nazis, Nazi-adjacent philosophies also get kicked)
(And if you're a supporter of Jordan Peterson's or his ilk, leave here and go join some instance for "free speech" enthusiasts so we can ban your entire domain all at once)
New users hello :) Show more
There has been a bunch of new people join the instance lately, so it's a good time to remind us all that the rules here are a bit different from Twitter or even from other Mastodon instances
Check out our Community Standards here:
* Don't be a Nazi
* CW your politics, etc.
* Consider how others will receive your posts
* No cross-posters or link-shorteners
Other than that, make yourself at home :)
#introduction Hi! I'm trying out Mastodon after the Google+ retirement announcement. I'm working on a computer science PhD, but I'm interested in many things. In particular, I came to https://scholar.social to have interesting conversations that challenge me, exercise the limits of my capabilities, and broaden my horizons.
#introduction I am procrastinating by creating an account here with the excuse that I'm looking for a replacement of Google+
If I continue to be here I will be posting things I find interesting in relation to psychology (with an emphasis on productivity) and what can be generally described (by very few people) as "mind hacking", e.g. changing how we think in order to change how we act.
To get an idea, you can visit my "Productivity and Mind Hacking" collection on G+ https://plus.google.com/collection/cM1c3

I have added 2 new lines to the Scholar Social Community Standards:
* Satire and activism must make a good-faith effort to punch up. ("Punching up": making jokes or criticism at the expense of those with more power, higher status or greater privilege.)
* No academic/intellectual dishonesty (e.g. accounts for services offering to write academic papers to help student cheat; vaccine denialism, etc.)
#introduction I am a post-doctoral theoretical computer scientist currently in Bremen, Germany and originally from Czech Republic. My work focuses on approximation and online algorithms as well as combinatorial optimization. I'm a #vegetarian and non-drinker. I'm also new in town, so if you are near #bremen on #niedersachsen, I'll be happy to follow you!
#introduction This is my first toot. I am a Data Reporting Specialist for a large urban school district in the US. My work-related research is in testing and program evaluation, and I aspire to obtain a Bachelor's degree in Geographic Information Sciences. I'm curious about issues of technology, race, and socioeconomic equity in public education. Outside of work, I am interested in #archeology, and I am an avid #gamer.
My first toot!
I'm the Director of the Centre for Information Ethics and Public Policy and have an Honorary Research Fellowship at Cardiff University. Currently I'm living on the island of Symi in the Greek Dodecanese. You can find out more about me at www.phidoc.net.

Pinned toot: this month's journal club
My main/non-admin account: @bgcarlisle
Scholar Social is meant for: researchers, grad students, librarians, archivists, undergrads, academically inclined high schoolers, educators of all levels, journal editors, research assistants, professors, administrators—anyone involved in academia who is willing to engage with others respectfully.
We strive to be a safe space for queer people and other minorities, recognizing that there can only be academic freedom where the existence and validity of interlocutors' identities is taken as axiomatic.
"A Mastodon profile you can be proud to put on the last slide of a presentation at a conference"
(Participation is, of course, optional)
Scholar Social features a monthly "official" journal club, in which we try to read and comment on a paper of interest.
Any user of Scholar Social can suggest an article by sending the DOI by direct message to @firstname.lastname@example.org and one will be chosen by random lottery on the last day of the month. We ask that you only submit articles that are from *outside* your own field of study to try to ensure that the papers we read are accessible and interesting to non-experts.
