One of the biggest things that bugs me about Discord's creeping monopoly on communication is the terminology they've got people to use. It's all "a Discord", "our Discord", "a Discord server" - like it's something you get to have, when it's them that gets to have you and your community as an asset to turn into money. Fuck that shit.
Yeah, I think I have Strong Opinions on this topic.

Maybe it looks that way because they are?
Fry, our baby #guppy, is living in our backup tank right now until she gets big enough to not get accidentally swallowed by another #fish in the main #aquarium. We've had an ongoing issue with that tank though, and the water pH keeps creeping up no matter what we do.
In a "well we've tried everything else" guess, I completely replaced all the gravel today, so Fry got to have a brief adventure in a bucket.
I chose black gravel because she seems like a bit of a goth kid to me.
I met this #bird today. She was very friendly but quite disappointed that my thumbs were not food.
cancel culture. seriously, stop it. Show more
Interesting to see how anyone who interacts in any way with a bad thing is immediately and irredeemably a bad person.
Even if they're trying to make the bad thing less bad.
And anyone who stops and looks for more information is also irredeemably bad because they're supporting someone you immediately cancelled by trying to get the full story before doing things that cannot be reversed.
This strategy has a definitive end point. And that end point is when the lynch mob turns on you.
Whenever you see a big explosion of drama, stop. Wait until it dies down. Do your own research.
This has happened at least three or four times since I joined the fediverse. Every single time, it was because someone overreacted and nobody thought to check for themselves.
Does anyone know what this disease is? It started a couple of weeks ago, and it doesn't seem to affect the growth of the plant unless the top leaves are infected, most of the tomato plants are still growing really well. I live in a warm and humid climate so I think I'll try growing the next batch of tomatoes during winter when the deseases are hopefully not as bad :)
