For the most part I've given up on . I ragequit altogether about a year ago, because of the mismatch between supporting Nazis' free speech while censoring marginalised people over foul language. Then I did start a new account because I was missing too many friends who didn't follow me here. But the recent big redesign made the experience totally bewildering for someone who logs in infrequently and doesn't say much, so now it's just useless.
That said, I did find a couple of threads worth sharing in all the noise the last time I did look at . Here's one about a colonial-propaganda painting and "history" of Fort Kamloops in what's now BC, and just how many different ways the history generally accepted among settler-Canadians is full of 💩 : https://twitter.com/KamloopsArchaeo/status/1168591372296675329
(and as usual, this is a detailed particular instance of a much more general phenomenon. I know a bit about local parallels here.)
And here's a beautiful, exuburant thread about the many architectural styles of Africa: https://twitter.com/1ncognito___/status/1167748981188902914
In this instance, the shittiness of many replies is a reminder of the other reason just isn't fun any more. But if you can hold your nose over Yet Another Honky Claiming Ancient Egypt Was White™️ there are also some replies adding more photos of more regional styles to the mix.
