conservatism (as a social thing, for a change), please boost if so inclined 

1/5

There's a widespread perception that people become more conservative as they age.

This is true - but mostly on a technicality. Or rather, a few technicalities.

Firstly and most obviously - society changes. If you keep the same views throughout your life (as many people do), you are much more conservative by comparison to the average person by the time you're old. It's not necessarily evil, but it happens.

Fedi is the most strange thing in the world.

On normal social media, you write a message and people just ignore it forever.

Here, you write a message, it stays ignored for 1 or 2 years, and then all of a sudden, for no reason, with no explanation, someone finds it somehow, boosts it, and it gets 200 likes and 120 boosts.

What the fuck.

I'm sure someone will boost this message in 2021 or 2022.

furry stuff, nazis, drama, queerphobia 

was in a popular furry Telegram channel and was having fun and then I saw two nazi furs in the comms talking about nazism (one guy had a Slavic swastika on his pfp and other was his friend). No one cared, no one batted an eye.

I confronted them and told them to gtfo since nazifurs are the scum of this fandom. The nazi guy turned out to be an alt-right ukrainian guy who in return started spitting some anti-lgbt rhetoric and that "f*gs are Russia agents" 1/5

Hey, seriously: UX developers I am begging you, please stop following trends without reason. If a bunch of apps are following some new HIG that has real research and backing behind it, go wild. But stop assuming that companies like Google or Apple are actually designing their UXs with logic in mind and using them as a reference point. They're not.
To be REALLY clear here: they're not. They literally aren't. the constant UX redesigns we see from these companies is a result of their corporate…

So it feels like each year I see something about an operation called Pridefall where people are meant to target those in the LGBTQ community and try to steal their accounts.

While I can't say for certain that this is actually real, I will take this opportunity to

tankies fascism 

Tankies are useful fools for fascist. As they're blind hatred of liberalism has led them to support fascism. Because in their view liberalism is fascism and because of that they serve the actual fascist well in their goal of trying to destroy the liberal world

Seeing more examples show up of GPT-backed SEO farms spewing out word salad to get clicks for either ad impressions or scam purposes.

Usually it's "Haha what mess is this" tier of garbage but every now and then something convincing and harmfully wrong shows up, and it's just going to get more and more convincing sounding as the tech improves.

The most recent one I saw was just advising the wrong weight of oil for a specific model of car, but sooner or later someone's going to get bad medical advice this way.
