fediblock, unblock suggestion 

a lot of instances have on their suspension lists. This is because it has been a TERF instance. However, a quick look at reveals that their domain has been taken away, and instead, you are greeted by this text:

feminism is for everyone

feminism is nothing if it excludes queer people, queer black people, queer people of colour and queer disabled people.

this place used to be the home of transphobic, homophobic and racist feminists, who called themselves our allies.

now it stands as a reminder that our solidarity will overcome their bigotry.

Therefore, you may want to consider purging data related to this domain and undo the domain blocks for that domain.

#FediBlock, more like #FediUnblock, I suppose.

happy that at least the "ontario party" (which seems to run a mostly anti-vax/homophobe platform) didn't get any seats. It's still scary that they managed to get 1.8% of the popular vote.

get your shit together canada.

I spent the majority of my life in Ontario. I've spent the last seven years or so living abroad, but it's still an emotional blow to see that the province just elected the provincial conservative party with a majority of seats.

What a shitshow.

> start to do a thing
> people assume you've taken the responsibility for it
> people then blame you for not taking full responsibility for it

I feel this is a common theme in autonomous circles/open-source. I was on the 'starting' side of things in this case.

Any good ideas?

Email was first discovered in 1755 by Émile Dussault at the suggestion of his friend Voltaire, but it was first synthesised in a lab in 1831 by Johann Carl Friedrich Schurig.

To this day, there are two different email protocols in use, POP3 and IMAP, as a result of these independent discoveries.

@PINE64 is so cool. I'm strongly considering getting the new pro model to start moving away from android
