most of the meetings i've been to have tended to use Rusty's Rules of Order, which are less bureaucratic and better suited for a smaller group of people.

anti-Semitic violence in the USSR 

"The Bolsheviki had closed the Jewish hospitals and now sick Jews were forced to eat treife in the Gentile hospitals. The same applied to the Jewish children in the Bolshevik feeding houses. If a Jew and a Gentile happened to be arrested on the same charge, it was certain that the Gentile would go free while the Jew would be sent to prison and sometimes even shot."

in the Paris Commune, they burned the guillotine as a symbol of bourgeois oppression. Robespierre didn't build communism, he built a literal death machine. the Jacobins who followed him did not build communism. instead, they would inspire Lenin to build a bigger death machine and falsely call it communism, which inspired Hitler to build an even larger death machine and falsely call it socialism.

beheadings may seem cathartic, but they won't build a better world.

Imo there should be a forum or fedi instance or discord server full of insect nerds where you can just post a photo and ask "what the heck is this buge" and the insect nerds answer you within seconds

asking for help 

Hey, lovelies

Sorry for being a constant burden, you know how much I hate it, but I need a hand (or paw) with groceries.

Anything you could kick into the bucket hat would be massively appreciated

Thanks so much for keeping me living and sane. You all truly mean the world to me :teal_sparkling_heart:

social media 

I don't have a lot of strong feelings about foss or federation or the Mastodon project in themselves

I'm here because when I was trying to figure out my gender stuff I didn't really feel at home anywhere and someone told me fedi was where the trans furry computer artist weirdos hung out

I've met a lot of remarkable folks here and it's maybe the first place I've felt truly at home online. but it's the people that are important to me, not the software

no ads is a plus though

The bad users are doing some weird stuff

- I got a reply from an instance with a domain name that is not registered

- In the same thread, I got more replies, and none of the instances I got replies from could even see any of the thread (???)

You know, I'm not impressed with GPT-3 (green highlights are generated)

if you've looked at moving off github in the past and ended up extremely unimpressed by the janky ui and bugs of gitlab, i don't blame you. but please give codeberg.org and other gitea sites a second look; they are head and shoulders above gitlab in usability and stability.

Most people are aware that a U.S. Supreme Court seat is a lifetime appointment, but many don’t realize that — from a certain perspective — so are all politicians.

The (in my circles at least famously) non-binary creator of the recent She-Ra reboot is going by Nate now, and here's a comic where he talks about this: imfineimfine.com/p/nate

The "and this is... uh" "uh" part reminds me real hard of my own name feelings around 2014-2015.

In honor of World Give Up GitHub day, here's a quick guide to how to serve up your own git repos.

In an empty directory readable from WWW (that has the URL you want your repo to have, for cloning) that you also can write to over SSH, run

git init --bare
mv hooks/post-update.sample hooks/post-update

Make sure the directory has the permissions you want for web (world readable, not writable).

Set the SSH path to the directory as a remote on your local copy of the repo, and push to it and you're done.

Reposting this because some fool on TikTok was recommending pennyroyal as an abortifacient, probably unaware that it can kill you.

FROM THE ARCHIVES:
Today's informational plant post... will be in verse.

European pennyroyal, fan of many soils,
The species pulegium in the genus Mentha.
A mint with toxic oil, causing organs to go spoiled,
forty centimeters tall with flowers near-magenta.

This poison herb was once upon a time a medicine,
Useful in the kitchen, as well as for abortion
And would keep the fleas off of you
if rubbed upon your skin.

Not so favored now as it was in late antiquity,
Known now to cause some violent liver toxicity.
Well-established 'round the world,
Its native range a bit evasive,
Don't plant it on the West Coast
Where it's known to be invasive.
