if you read stuff on my website and it's more convenient to refer to me as your friend than as a person on the internet with a website you keep up with, I hereby befriend you

as the instance admin, to other instances 

if you see undesirable content being federated through occult.institute to your instance please let me know and I will implement the necessary blocks. this is a 1.5 user instance so I don't typically bother blocking instances proactively but that is only because of laziness/perceived lack of impact, and I don't want it to actually impact anyone

😬🧷: microblogging has neither the social immediacy of chat nor the considered aspect of email. while I still accept responsibility for the impact of what I write, until this crap gets an edit button, it may not ever be what I *meant*.

interesting amount of engagement! answers seem to be "because it was always a bad idea" (I don't have an opinion on this really, haven't done the research as to what the impact was before), "because it was punished" (plausible), and "lol post 9/11 are you kidding" (this was said more nicely but does seem like I should have put two and two together and does totally answer my q even standing alone)

why is there so little ecoterrorism now? not to sound plaintive, it just doesn't make sense to me

haha oh really? was it hotter in texas? people here don't know what hot means? THE ELDERLY ARE DYING, BUDDY, YOU CAN EAT MY ENTIRE ASS

"nativism" for the non-indigenous is always a crock but i will admit some irritation at this attitude from the bajillion transplants we have from other regions and countries

heat warnings in the nw are like... should you feel bad for any given individual given that it's tiny in magnitude compared to other regions? maybe not. plenty of us have the needed amenities and are whiny. but in the bigger picture, there are a ton of vulnerable people who die... so maybe don't "lol this is nothing" it

there isn't a cute way to repair jeans that wear through in the thighs or shirts that tear at the armpit and i remain quietly jealous of cutesy elbow and knee patches

what's that? is that an SSG turning JSON into XML (OPML) with XSL converting to inlined SVGs in HTML?? the military has NOTHING on my alphabet soup
