🎉🎈 Mastodon.Social has just welcomed its 500.000th user 🎂
At this 🌟special🌟 #milestone I would like to thank everyone in the #fediverse for the numerous interesting posts, the wonderful time and the untiring voluntary #community contributions that make it all possible. Let's burn mastodon.social to the ground so we can achieve actual decentralisation❤️
COVID-19, CWs (or lack thereof), please boost
Unless you CW your #COVID19 posts, I ain't boosting or fave-ing. I hope others do the same. We already get enough unCWed stuff online and over traditional media, no need to exacerbate the problem for people that are sensitive to this.
Please boost this if you agree. It's CWed.
re: Admin announcement
for those who don't wanna click the link:
"Effective immediately, medical advice regarding #COVID19 not sourced from legitimate scientific or medical outlets is forbidden content. If you see someone advocating essential oils or colloidal silver or other junk quackery, please report it.
This is not a free speech zone. Misinformation that makes people dead is not “oh well we all have opinions”.
Other #admins, I beg that you please consider a similar policy."
"Okay, here's the scenario. You are a crew member on a starship."
"Space travel is slow, you'll be stuck with your crewmates a long time."
"So we must get along."
"Yes. Communicate, listen, share limited resources."
"I can do that. What's the starship called?"

Wow okay so I've finally encountered the #techbro gatekeeping shit. Bug opened against plugin for droneci by someone else, conversation gets bad, bug closed to the effect of "pr or gtfo". I figure out what's going on (yep, user error) and add a note to the docs in a pr which gets shouted down with "if you don't know that you don't deserve to have it work" (paraphrased) by the same person. Impressive.
Heh, remember when portable CD players were are a product category even though they objectively didn't work yet? It was impossible to actually move around while listening to music, which should be the the entire point of a portable CD player, because the slightest movement would cause the music to skip. People convinced themselves it was cool anyway, because it was new shiny expensive thing they could conspicuously consume in front of all the scrubs who still used tape players, old cheap trustworthy devices they could actually listen to music on
Anyway, Stadia seems cool
Peanut butter doesn't contain nuts or butter. Hemp seeds are nuts, while strawberries and raspberries aren't berries. Oyster mushrooms are oyster-free, and eggplant doesn't come from a cloaca. Food names are often nonliteral, so don't piss your pants about veggie burgers/oat milk

Alright #mastoadmins, new release out there. Go get it...
I don't often post about politics here on Mathstodon, but this is exceptional.
