I waited a few weeks to decide to ban spinster because I thought banning the whole instance was heavy-handed. I thought maybe some of those users aren't pushing anti-trans ideology and don't deserve to be cut off. After I read the admins' anti-trans essays I decided that anyone who hitches their cart to those horses did so consciously. (1/2)
I knew I would get a raft of shit for blocking spinster users on Moa but seeing this makes it worth it.

Fox and CNN are carrying the same story about Comey but with clearly different goals.

Incredible interactive map of electronic music.
Really interesting move by IBM to make the OpenPower architecture royalty-free.
Yet another example IMO of why centrists shouldn’t lead.
This video by Engadget is great and it’s true we knew nothing about mfg at the beginning of this journey. We’ve been fortunate to have very experienced people guiding us along.
