Heads-up if you’re using Chrome:

There’s going to be some changes to the way Google will get the URL you’re visiting

“These new protections can inspect the URLs of pages visited with Safe Browsing’s servers in real time. When you visit a website, Chrome checks it against a list stored on your computer of thousands of popular websites that are known to be safe”

This is *very* different from how Safe Browsing normally works

If you need an ancient artifact weapon as a MacGuffin for your RPG, might I suggest a 5,00 year old crystal dagger and some crystal arrow heads as the only artifacts that can slay the ancient evil reborn in the modern day?

Confident in my riddle-solving I greeted the sphinx.
"Tell me," it said, "what's the point, really?"
"Um," I said. "Are you okay?"
Its face was unreadable.
I repeated my question. It answered. We had a long talk. Well, I mostly listened.
"You're right," it said at last. "Thanks."

because how many trans people have had to die due to transphobia?

Someone should make a book about Polyamory that's a bit less direct than "The Ethical Slut"

It's ok to be angry about how you've been treated for being queer.

It is the motivation that writes speeches and paints posters. It's the strength that holds back the police and fundamentalists so the protest can go on.

Anger is not a flaw.

Hello Fediverse, and and especially PeerTube's admins.

After finding Neo-Nazi content on the instance I was using, I realized that far-right groups have created PeerTube instances or use unmoderated instances to share their videos.

This content federates on other instances.

I've created this account to list somewhere theses instances, making it easier to isolate them and their content and protect us.

The list : cryptpad.fr/pad/#/2/pad/view/V

---

You can help by reporting instances to this account.

You can follow this account to get update about this list (theses will be under a content warning).

Remember when I asked everyone why their JJBA stand would be? WELL GUESS WHAT: there was an eclipse over an ancient Mayan temple where a bunch of vampire rock people were doing a ritual with the bones of John the Baptist, and NOW EVERYONE GETS NEW STANDS FOR THE REST OF DECEMBER

BUT

They can only be named after holiday songs or artists.

What is your festive holiday stand?
