"We shouldn't be making decisions on behalf of WordPress. We should be making them on behalf of the web."

@mor10@twitter.com at saying what I (and he) have been saying for years.

If you're here for @WordCampUS@twitter.com join @lmelegari@twitter.com, myself, and some other cool folks for breakfast at Sun Diner by the venue at 7.

Followed by the book, I'd have been kicked off Facebook countless times. But instead this'll just be justification for attacking marginalized people more directly.

Anyone have any good hostfile additions for DNS66 and/or an alternative to improve tracking and script blocking on Android?

I've done a bad job keeping up on the tweets during but I have had a great time so far. Y'all are πŸ’—πŸ’–πŸ’—

The best pins do something fun and have apropos backings. Thanks for the cool pin @TojoTheThief@twitter.com! Check out their shop at frogdrops.com

I leave for with @lmelegari@twitter.com in a few hours. Looking forward to seeing everyone, not saying anything stupid, and not feeling emotionally drained afterward!

If I ever come off as a know it all on the Internet (I'm sure that I have plenty of times), call me out on it.

Reading support threads where one party comes across that way without any basis is frustrating as heck.

@josephdickson I do the same, and most of the time it responds to both of us for me. Every once in a while when I'm congested it will think that my responses are for him. It's frustrating that I can't verify who I am, or play on multiple devices.

Seeing lots of "people are flooding Mastodon from Tumblr" posts.

I'm not as informed of the breadth of Masto culture, but I do run an instance at tech.lgbt if you want a place to park your toots that's still kinda quiet.

Mastodon's a cool place, but it's private like a local coffee shop, not a home bathroom.

Remember that the admin of your instance can see EVERYTHING you post, including direct posts. They can even disable 2 factor authentication, if you have it enabled (and you should. No really, enable that stuff now.)

Bottom line: Find an instance where you feel you can trust your admin, and don't send direct toots unless you trust the admin at the recipient's instance as well.

A millimeter or two can make a big difference.

Hey y'all, night is totally the time to post a donation thread, right? I'll probably RT in the morning.

@curtismchale and Imagify is always suggesting it to me πŸ˜‚
