@mykola a trailer for weirder.earth disguised as the trailer for Yet Another X-Files Movie, except that mulder and scully are investigating rumours of a social network for cryptids:

scully: what are you doing?
mulder, dead serious: i'm "shitposting", scully.
scully, rolling her eyes: you are making this up.
mulder: no, this is how i signal to the other weird-earthers that i'm cool, you know, one of them. see? already a hit, one of them sent me a steve buscemi image.

Instances should record dramatic over-the-top trailers for people considering joining.

"In a world... that's... a little bit weirder..."

What would y'all put on such a thing?

Hey all, hopefully this fixes the sidekiq issues. Any instance admins out there know why my sidekiq might be clogging up periodically?

There are not always easy answers and I’m sorry that this situation unfolded as it has. @shadowfirebird i hope you find a place where you’re happy.

NK Jemisin writes beautifully about how hard it is to find a just solution when a whole culture is predicated on oppression. It makes us all do things to survive and protect ourselves that we would otherwise not do.

Hey I posted a gut reaction on the wil wheaton thing this morning and I apologize.

The fact is he hurt trans folks and it’s entirely up to them whether they want to welcome him into a space that they love.

Intentions don’t matter, actions do. And it’s certainly not my place to tell anyone to get over it.

I respect wil for his mental health advocacy - but he didn’t handle this with grace, and it’s not up to folks he hurt to just shut up and accept it.

Thanks to those who helped me grok it.

Alright, I get that the wilw thing is a touchy subject. I get that it didn’t happen on this instance. I get that I’m not fully informed. I’ll suspend my own judgment until I can learn more.

But: we can’t treat mistakes as the same thing as abuse. From where I’m sitting that’s what this looks like.

If I’m missing something, please help me see it.
