tips for "LB" "Last Boost" posts 

did you know that, at least on Mastodon, if you reply to the post you boosted, but manually remove the original poster's @-handle, then write your "LB: my commentary here" post, you won't be spamming the original poster's notifications and someone reading your post can simply click into it and go up in the thread to see exactly what "LB" refers to. this way they don't have to scroll back on their TL or go to your TL to know what you're referencing

Australia elected a Labor PM in 1972 and briefly became independent, abolishing royal patronage and expressing solidarity with non-aligned countries.

They're figureheads until they're not

good luck to all the childcare workers walking off the job today in my city, and across my continent!!

you deserve a massive pay rise for all the thankless work you do. i don’t envy the toxic way you are treated by your bosses, in what should be one of the most joyful and rewarding professions of all.

there is power in a union!!!!!
