J.K. Rowling, long post, read and show it to your cis friensd, boosts welcome 

I'm gonna need cis people to understand that J.K. Rowling is not a neutral/good/apolitical person with a bad habit. She is an evil, actively harmful agitator who has been a, if not the, central figure of laundering and libwashing a ultra-far-right hate and terrorist movement, whose hatespeech has encouraged very real, very deadly violence, who has served as inspiration and justification to fascists world-wide, both Putin and the Republicans, who has an immense wealth which she most likely uses to fund said hate movement as well, who has been a vocal supporter of openly fascist and anti-semitic ideologues (such as Magdalen "Soros funds the transes" Berns), who has lent massive amounts of publicity and credibility to far-right figures and those who openly collaborate with the far-right, and who has been quoted verbatim by fascist Republicans in their campaigns for deadly anti-trans bills.

She not your nice aunt who's a little weird. To put it in terms HP fans understand, she's not Molly Weasley, she's Bellatrix Lestrange. She is a key figure of the anti-trans movement that has acted as a vanguard for the fascist resurgence. She has been directly co-responsible for spawning the conspiracy theories you now see on Tucker Carlson and Libs of TikTok. She has spear-headed the campaign that has sabotaged the GRA reform. She has praised far-right ideologues such as self-described theocratic fascist Matt Walsh.

She is a fascist enabler. Treat her as such. Treat her like Orson Scott Card or Varg Vikernes. Don't buy her shit. She's got riches to last her several lifetime, and spare change to fund a dozen fascist movements without ever running out.

Mein heutiger Blick raus aus der Techi-Bubble hat mir gezeigt:

*Es gibt Menschen, die schon so von Zoom geprägt sind, dass sie sobald sie eine Videokonferenz betreten, davon ausgehen, dass sie aufgenommen werden

*Kein Whats App zu haben ist für einige Leute kein Zustand, der existiert oder mit dem sie rechnen

*Nicht alle Menschen wissen, wie sie ohne Messenger zu nutzen ihre Stimme aufnehmen

Wollte ich nur mal für euch hier lassen. Mir hat dieser kleine Realitätscheck geholfen mal wieder auf den Teppich zu kommen.

earlier today i was added to a telegram stock trading scam group, sent an image of a fennec saying "look at this cute fennec :)" and immediately got banned
cache :blobCat_in_box: boosted

in general my advice on image descriptions is that they should be an acceptable substitute for the purpose of the image, the post should make as much sense if the image was removed and substituted with only the alt text

cache :blobCat_in_box: boosted

making image descriptions artificially short because you worry about how much time it might take to read out assumes that it can't be skipped, and also assumes that someone looking at it won't be interested in it in detail. optimising descriptions for disinterested timeline scrolling is imo a fairly strange assumption to make about how interested people ought to be in your posts

Sie hetzen gegen Migration oder verbreiten Falschinformationen: Medien aus elf europäischen Ländern kooperieren, um ihren Einfluss zu vergrößern. Sie stehen Parteien wie der FPÖ, AfD oder Fratelli d’Italia nahe.

Im Zentrum stehen die Webseite „Unser Mitteleuropa“ und ein toter Österreicher, der Kontakte in die rechtsextreme Szene hatte.

I've been described as a techno-nihilist before, but... I'm really really starting to hate the capitalist side of technology.
"Oh, we can't possibly keep support for 3G networks! It's old and taking up resources. But we'll still make you pay extra to use MMS, despite SMS being technology from the 80s!"
"You only need internet? Fuck you, you have to get VoIP phone, too!"
"We can't possibly keep analogue telephone running because... because...
...we can't charge more for analogue telephone!"

war, protest in ru 

There were some protests yesterday (despite everything! despite people being mobilized *right from police stations*) but what impressed me the most is that in Grozny over 100 women came out to protest the mobilization. Grozny is Chechnya and I can't even start to describe how brave these women are.

Fun fact: aiologger is one of the first results a person gets once they look up for asynchronous logging libraries in Python.

However, the GitHub site (that used to belong to a Brazilian finance-related org) is empty: github.com/b2wdigital

And the GitHub repository is gone: github.com/b2wdigital/aiologge

Which is very mysterious, as the original authors are still active on pypi.org
