stop using "master/slave" to describe your software relationships. instead, try alternatives like "dominant/submissive"

kiwifarms, long 

The guy behind KF wrote this long whining screed in the wake of Dreamhost opting to no longer take money from him in exchange for being his domain registrar and DNS provider.

I won't bother linking it. In the screed his complains that he's down to Cloudflare or running every part of the infrastructure from crossconnect to server to IP allocation to domain registration himself, because at every step of the process to get networked and online someone has "censored" (editorial comment: by censored he means "exercised their right to not do business with him") him.

VPS providers won't do business with him, a datacenter yanked his servers and told him to piss off, several orgs will not XC with anyone that carries him, no ISP will carry him so he's had to start his own, and even if he funds and runs everything required to be his own ISP, host, registrar, and provider he then has nothing protecting him from having his dick DDoSed off which is apparently a constant and on-going thing; imagine that.

It's really one of the biggest "No, it's everyone else who is wrong" cases of cognitive dissonance I've ever seen.

Oh, and also: Good.

if i ate this bowl of cake frosting with a spoon, would anyone even know?

I didn’t manage to import my followers list before the lights went out at rad town, so it would be really helpful if people could boost this to know I am over here now. 💜💖🖤☺️

hetero-attracted aces, do you consider yourself straight, queer, both, neither or other? I ask this without any gatekeepy bullshit, just out of interest. If you like a label, it's yours :) boosting is appreciated for larger sample size

The more I read the Gray Business Suits For Pride flyer, the better it gets.

cis software people are always like
"lol lets not add a way to change your username"
"lets make past username history available to anyone"
"lets make username changes into microtransactions"
"im sure it will be fine lol, who needs to change their name anyway"

gonna make a new line of bumper stickers that say "save the earth, it's the only planet with capitalism" to try and appeal to the billionaire demographic

Conservatives: Two queer people ending up in the same movie is just so unlikely!

Seven nonbinary trans people who speak a made up language no one's ever heard ending up in the same chatroom on an unheard of chat platform: Wow, this just keeps happening

@apisashla The CNPL is pretty cool, and Hippocratic 2.0 isn't a bad liberal-approved license. The problem is the OSI doesn't like thinking about software being used to cause harm and bonks them both into the NOT FREE category. If you're looking for a cooler license list, you might be interested in the Organization for Ethical Source
