Can anyone here recommend a good Russian language masto instance?

I wonder if there's a way to get nginx to send it for every website it serves, w/o editing each config?
I'm sure they'll break this in time anyhow.

I can’t believe I’m having to write this code in a fucking web server. What a mockery of the web, human rights, and the GDPR.

Fuck you, Google!

So, ball’s in your court, web server developers.

Are you going to add a one-line header, by default, to your server responses to protect people from being tracked by Google or not?

Adding it to Site.js took 5 minutes or work:

I just want to point how that it's a little weird to take a poet's name, use the letters of her native alphabet, but arrange them in such a way as to make her name incomprehensible in her native alphabet.

This entire website is just picrew avatars interacting with each other

Consider: plain HTML, maybe a font some colour and a lil spacing, instead of 3 million sliders and icons and interactives.

Can someone please fill me in, who’re the monads and why are people defederating and something about nazis?

cis ppl will use "google it" as a verb and then throw an absolute tantrum about how they/them can't be used out of its standard usage in the same sentence without a hint of irony

I'm watching a russian cooking sitcom and it's w i l d, in no particular order:
- Someone has shot a goose mid-air wearing no pants, then got knocked out by an angry vegetarian breaking a bottle over their head
- The chef poisoned someone
- They brought in a lie detector and determined that one of the cooks has murdered someone and assumed their identity, but it's ok because they're not jumping ship to a competing restaurant.

every few years:
we’re all tired of movies from the perspective of the [antagonist/protagonist], make more movies about [heroes/villains]

let’s play typing in russian roulette!:
1. everything works normally (0.01% drop chance)
2. the text looks weird and has the default font
3. ⍰⍰⍰⍰⍰⍰⍰⍰⍰
4. the text doesnt show at all
5. the website crashes

You’ve heard of trans exclusionary radical feminists, now get ready for trans inclusionary radical misogynists

"you'll figure it out" is not an acceptable parenting technique.
