#ActivityPub supports Groups. I'm wondering if anyone has developed something like a mailing list for AP yet?
I want to have a technical group ala a mailing list.
Anyone know of anything like this yet?
Heh, this looks like a good place for a poorly designed quality nuclear power plant... https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-07-13/quake-make-los-angeles-radioactive-dead-zone Bullet dodged this time, but if any of this is true, it bodes most ill...
Nothing like a fight about codes of conduct to start my morning.
That plus the goddamned "if you're not with us, you're against us" bullshit in my Fedi last night...
I'm sitting here typing and retyping my frustration into this little form field, instead of getting my ass to the pool and clearing my head.
People are dumb.
@lindsays I know all those things, and I still think it's worth engaging with and (carefully) including people who hold horrid views, if only because it's the only way there's hope they'll change.
As a person with privilege, who is not at risk, I am in a position to do that. I'm not saying I expect everyone to do this. And I'm still going to iron fist enforce a CoC in my projects, and look out for my people.
I also intend to give blood. I won't be asking about the politics of the recipients.
@lindsays You're putting words in my mouth. Please stop.
I didn't say I was neutral. I'm not neutral, I have many strongly held opinions and suspect I agree with you on most of the things you care strongly about.
But I still consider pacifism and similar neutral ideologies, such as are common in academia and yes, in FOSS, to be ethically valid.
If you really think I'm an enemy, please just block me. I'd rather you didn't, because I enjoy what you have to say, but it's your call. ❤️
@suetanvil I cannot speak for FOSS in general, but my opinion is: the decision not to impose ones' morals and ethics on others, is itself a valid ethical stance.
We all have strongly held opinions, whether we're vegan or poor or pacifist or fundamental Christian or gay or nazi.
Agreeing to disagree, so we can together build useful things that benefit everyone, is one way to respect diversity of opinion and still make the world a better place.
That's my philosophical take.
(to be cont'd)
Gonna take the whole "Don't scab on prime day" moment to promote one of my favourite alternatives to an amazon product.
Please support it, not just on prime day, but any time you need info on a film. Keep information free.
Microsoft stirs suspicions by adding telemetry files to security-only update.
It seems some lovely humans are rallying on Github to make #Mailpile more of a team effort, and less just me burning out.
I'm touched and encouraged and happy...
I'm gonna do my best to not discourage them by imposing my priorities on their efforts (unless they ask me to).
Volunteers should work on what they're passionate about. Bringing them up to speed and building a team is more important than pushing everything in the "right" direction.
Pushing hasn't been working anyway, so f it.
I really like the 80 columns rule, it makes easier to read and understand things (try looking at newspapers and magazines, most of them stick to something close to 80 or even lower) and it is a good rule of thumb to evaluate languages: your language makes it difficult to stick to the 80 columns rule? Change language

Patch notes should say "piss off, what do whatever we want. If you wanted to know you should have bought #foss"
Just trying to figure out if I am a workaholic or if I'm just happy about my job.
