I’m sick to death of people being precious about #GMO produce. Functionally there is no difference between a grape bred to have little or no seed and a grape that has been modified in a lab for the same thing. Y’all are just scared of science.

You wanna talk about #Monsanto charging for “licenses” for their crops, ok. Talk about agribusiness killing the planet, ok. Talk about corporations copyrighting genetic code, ok. These are all valid concerns.

But the science is sound.

Is one of the reasons I am completely against attempts to try and get payment processors to cut off service to various people, groups, or industries. It is, as far as I am concerned, simply not a thing payment processors should be legally allowed to do.

It's almost like it's difficult to morally support the existence of modern nation states if you firmly believe that all children deserve an equal opportunity to grow up happy

@gingerrroot I think the tone is the thing I take issue with, more than the method.

Intentionally bypassing the methods in place to help people deal with surviving on social media because the author has decided it is important rubs me the wrong way.

If you start a toot with "I'm not adding a CW because I think this is important" then I may think it is important to block your ass.

You don't get to decide what topics people can or can't deal with.

libraries are such an important space

not only for free information, but especially for at risk populations and homeless populations

they offer free or very cheap internet access (which allows for finding resoucres, job applications, etc), free access to information, bathrooms, often places have refreshments for relatively cheap as well, etc. etc.

wanting to make public libraries obsolete is classist and just an incorrect viewpoint tbh

Remember

Not everyone can self host software systems.

Not everyone wants to self host software systems.

Not everyone gives a shit about tech

Most people just want to go online, do their thing and move on with their day

If there is a mass exodus from GitHub / GitLab or others we people hosting our own infra need to be good about discovery, community building, community engagement and more.

We also need to figure out how to federate authn/authz. I'll skip over submitting small things if it means yet another account on yet another server run by yet another random.

Centralization isn't great but it does facilitate discovery, community and engagement.

We need to keep this at the back of our mind.
