rocket league news, unhappy about the coverage 

how long ago was it that Valve announced it would stop supporting the Steam client on ubuntu because of canonical freezing 32-bit library support? Aaand as I recall, Apple announced also that Mac OS would be dropping 32-bit support. (Not to mention killing opengl support.)

I admit I could be completely wrong about this, but, look. RL is based on unreal engine 3, which came out in 2006. I think maybe, just maybe there's a technical reason afoot here

rocket league news, unhappy about the coverage 

If you didn't hear, RL is killing the online functionality of its linux and macos ports in March. absolutely it's shit news for the real mac and linux players out there. no doubt! Psyonix absolutely needs to explain more clearly why they're doing this. BUT

I am extremely disappointed to see every article seeming to nudge at the epic games purchase and not the technical announcements that macos and ubuntu previously made that have been making waves

"Russia Insider" is a re-boot of infamous neo-Nazi website, the Daily Stormer, by one of its former main writers, Erik Striker. According to @Hatewatch his parents are immigrants from Latin America. splcenter.org/hatewatch/2019/0 twitter.com/RVAwonk/status/121

my bad body 

I tried getting dressed and managed to pinch or pull something in my shoulder. So now I'm laid out trying not to move in any way that aggravates it. Most movements aggravate it.

Speaking of getting rid of Google, I love this move by Basecamp:

"We’re dropping the last third-party tracking pixel. When you visit our page, you only have to trust that we won’t abuse that data – not a laundry list of third parties"

I still wish I was there in person, but I thank mag staff (and volunteers) heartily for these streams!

sucking a dick and thinking to myself "they should make a movie about this"

oops I meant to send you good vibes but I pressed the wrong button and sent self-loathing instead. LOL! my b!

meta discussion, uspol 

pretty interesting overlap between people who posted "Giant Meteor 2020" memes now going "DONT talk about ww3 it's not going to happen and it's not FUNNY"

the extent to which white folks will stretch themselves and distort reality to give themselves some kind of "authority" is terrifying, and stupid, and awful

Marginalized bigots exist but no one needs a white knight 

None of this is to suggest that marginalized people cannot be bigoted and abusive. But if your response to that suspicion is not to reach out to the women and queer people in the accused bigot's community, to seek their opinions and boost their voices if necessary, but to throw out racially-tinged insults and threaten violence, then I can't hear your supposed care for vulnerable people over your loud and strident racism.

The weaponization of social justice against Black people 

Nonblack leftists have got to talk about how we so often position Black people as inherently regressive, oppressive, and scary/violent in order to justify disproportionate and racist attacks on them. Like, the lie that #BlackLivesMatter is homophobic has been perpetuated for YEARS to dismiss their goals even as their activists are being killed and jailed. Leftist antiblackness works hand in glove with right-wing and state suppression.

french gab thread, sui / murder mention 

Those are people from the JV.com 18-25 forum.

they harrass people, dox people, make people kill themselves etc. etc.

Those are like gab, minus the fact that they haven't gone and shot people because firearms are not that easy to procure.

Those are dangerous people

These cats are cowards. They think their software is going to save them and we won't recognize the lack of character and decency they exhibit on a pretty regular basis.

But we see them for that they are. distbin.com/activities/11879b7

Ha, that's why they hate us. That's why their trying to take folks like me down and projects like Funkwhale down.

The idea that we don't have to deal with their toxic bullshit is an existential threat to them.

The fact they just aren't that important enrages them.

Like I've said before, we don't block instances for no reason. There are trends that we recognize and deal with because allowing a certain type of behavior takes away from us building community and better spaces.

There's no grand leftist conspiracy or some esoteric reason as to why we are canceling folks.

LOL, yall are insufferable dickheads and we'd just rather not waste time dealing with your foolishness.

That's all it is. That's all it's ever been.

Further, this 'point' is completely irrelevant because it completely ignores *why* people are pushing back so hard.

Quite simply, we're tired of people's toxic and manipulative bullshit.

There's a reason people don't fuck with Pleroma. There's a reason why the majority of dansup's supporters are folks who have a history of coming at Black and Brown folks.

Kaniini like to hem and haw about evil THE LEFT is, but ignores the context of why.

Because that's what bigots do.
