Can we please, please – PLEASE! not make the nonsensical US date format month/day/year the default in applications? 🤦♂️
PRE 👏 TTY 👏 PLEASE
And to all users of that format: it makes no sense, it's counter-intuitive, it makes collaboration frustrating, it introduces inconsistencies and errors... Just stop. Please. Use international standards.
(And don't get me started on your other units of weights, volumes and distances. Bloody hell.)
Boost if I'm right.
Due to recent events, I read so much wrong things about #Fedilab
- No, Fedilab was a paid app before the gab matter. The goal was to move people to F-Droid (Fedilab got more than 50k active users at this time)
- No, I didn't remove the free version, it was taken down by Google due to donation links.
- Yes, in-app login block is useless. That will never prevent your account to see messages from instances that you don't want to see.
And yes, the app has all tools to build your safe place.
Holy crap, google is apparently taking down all/most fediverse apps from google play on the grounds that that some servers in the fediverse engage in hate speech. At least three apps I know of anyway and I'd imagine the others will follow soon under the exact same reasoning.} Seems to be the case with Husky, Fedilab, and "subway" tooter.
this is a scary precedent if google play is going to ban any apps that can in any way be used to access content with hate speech. So what about a forum client, do they take that down just because there is a forum somewhere on the internet posting hate speech?
This is particularly worrisome because for most people Google Play is the only way they understand to install apps at all.

Another excellent video from Humane Hancock about veganism and wild animal suffering: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zG6TNgFGRck
It is amazing to see those questions discussed widely! We should really stop committing the appeal to nature fallacy when we are the first to (rightly!) criticize it when non-vegans use it to justify animal farming.
Thread sur l'ésotérisme dans les luttes
Je subis vraiment avec douleur que l'on voie une gauche intersectionnelle pourtant matérialiste se laisser séduire par l'ésotérisme.
Hier encore j'ai eu plusieurs exemples, et ça pose un réel problème cette porosité de plus en plus décomplexée et incriticable au new-age.

Why do you have to take a gamble and not recommend a mask when it is not worth it 🤨! Why do you have to undermine the rest of the scientific advice so bitterly?
At least wear it indoors and public transport.
Student of mine is conducting a survey on the barriers to uptake of alternative social media platforms. Your input would be much appreciated. Please boost.
If you want to cook/bake measuring only the mass of ingredients, it turns out that the densities of most vegetable oils are close to 920 kg/m³ at ambient temperature: https://hypertextbook.com/facts/2000/IngaDorfman.shtml
The new book from Magnus Vinding, Suffering-Focused Ethics: defense and implications, is out! I highly recommend it.
You can download a free PDF version on his website: https://magnusvinding.com/2020/05/31/suffering-focused-ethics-defense-and-implications/
Also, there happens to be a short quote from me in it :)
Aaaah I missed compiling codes with thousands of compiler warnings like

Into science/technology/some math. I think what really matters is reducing suffering for all sentient beings.
