Signal created targeted ads for Instagram that show the personal data that Facebook collects about you and sells access to.
They were blocked.
fediblock, nazi, csa
yet another soapbox nazi instance full of racism, ableism, transphobia, apparently allowing lolicon shit and all the fun stuff
the admin (i think they are?) posts shit with slurs and generic channer shit, interacts with poa.st and i think that should be enough of a reason

IF IT WERE TRUE THAT THE ONE CONSTANT OF THE WORLD IS THAT EVERYONE ONLY OPERATES ON A PROFIT MOTIVE, THE WORLD WOULD BE COMPLETELY, CRUSHINGLY BARREN
WE WOULD HAVE NOTHING
THE WORLD YOU LIVE IN EXISTS BECAUSE PEOPLE LOVE THINGS
THE IDEA THAT PROFIT DETERMINES HUMAN BEHAVIOR IS FUCKING DERANGED
police violence in the abstract, re: don't post videos of police violence
I'm going to post my concurrence to the "we don't need to have videos of the violence in our timelines.
As someone who is unlikely to be subject to police violence, I'm going to say that, if I know that some bit of police violence has occurred, I don't need to see the video. I don't need the images of what happened taking up space in my head. If I know that a thing happened, I can pretty well assume what the process looked like.
We don't need those images taking up space in our timelines or in our head. I already know that the police are terrible. A lot of people already know that.
What we need isn't images to drain our emotional energy and enrage us.
We need people to be taking that energy and putting it into mutual aid and support. We don't need to fall into the trap of letting ourselves be consumed by one atrocity after another.
We need to build each other up, making us stronger, through our support, through the love that we show to each other, to our vulnerable allies, friends, and associates.
I don't want to have to numb myself to the atrocities. I want to feel free to express feelings of support to all of the people who need it, to show them that they're not alone.
Images of atrocities don't build us up. Reaching out and helping who we can, where we can. That builds us up. Don't forget that.
