Anyone have a good email provider they can recommend who
– has open signup (e.g. not Disroot where you need to fill out a request and get manually approved)
– at least relatively trustworthy (e.g. not Google)
– supports IMAP?

I'm already covered myself, since I have Disroot, and my parents have their own mail server too. But I'm looking for something I can recommend to other people. (Or potentially use for alt email accounts as well, but still be able to use IMAP.)

I know that many people use social media for communications more than they do email. Im starting to see more and more sites relying on thier users being on [social media platform], so they ditch contact forms and email contact altogether.

Cant imagine relying on any social network, with no backup.

Why do media (shows/movies/music) streaming sites care so fucking much about region?

It's incredibly annoying how many times I actually try to find the 'right' option to watch/listen to something and it blocks me just because I happen to live in Brazil

Windows 10 changed their "forced updates" procedure at some point to provide a 7 day pause on the update screen, and let you designate longer pauses in a sub-menu.

But there's a limit, and once you "Exhaust your update pause days" you have to update before you can pause again.

Great, my OS has a f**king stamina system now.

Writing tip: cut out tentative words and phrases unless they’re truly load-bearing. “She seems to be tall.” “He’s fairly new at this.” “Bob was kind of angry.” If she really *is* tall, if he really *is* new at this, if Bob really *is* angry, then don’t weaken the impact.

writing tip: no writing tip will ever cover every situation. use adverbs. fuck up grammar. fuck up spelling. do whatever you can to get your soul on paper

I am addicted to reading arguments on the Internet and getting stressed out about them and I need to break this cycle.

I really wish people would stop putting animated "blinking cursor" emoji in their display names.

I don't claim my reason for such is common or even reasonable. I have a lazy eye and the movement draws just my right eye to it and it ruins my perception until I scroll it off.
