If you see the women are stupid spammer posting please use the report button!

Thank you to everyone who reported the one account. It's been suspended.

If you find any more we're more than happy to suspend the accounts linking to the women are stupid blog.

That spammer has been floating around for awhile and we are 100% content to keep them OUT of our feeds and timelines.

I think it's just a matter of OEM installs... everyone in my house uses Linux and FOSS, and dont have issues. It was just a matter me doing the initial install.

I see another spam wave is upon us. Please use the report button liberally

the real problem with discord that makes them truly evil is that they sell their solution as being something that provides self-determination.

when you move your community to discord, you start a what they call a "discord server."

to be clear, there is not really any such thing as a "discord server," this is just marketing terminology for group functionality.

they call it a discord "server" on purpose: they want to communicate the idea that you have full autonomy on your own "discord server," when in reality you are still at the mercy of discord as a service provider. this is truly evil, this goes beyond a lack of transparency to actively lying to potential users. not even Slack does this.

we must build real alternatives to these predatory services.

I'm just happy I got the Z80 riser for my computer. Now, I can run CP/M...

My kink is watching tech bros get annoyed when you keep reminding them bitcoin is ecologically unsound.
