The right has long held that homelessness is a symptom - of a lack of self-control, a lack of foresight, of addiction, mental illness, etc - and therefore the solution to it is training, incarceration, rehab, or rigid discipline.

None of this stuff worked.

Is there a design document anywhere for Mastodon?

I wonder how difficult it would be to hack in order to make exactly the single change of supporting instead of Postfix.

That alone would be useful to me.

What would be cool is if every time someone (or some bot) sets up an advertising site on , we shunt their account over to an instance specifically for commercial stuff and send them an invoice for, say, one year's service.

All the frozen-fruit instances would have to federate with it, because freeze peach and capitalism.

I'm homeless with 0 income.

The next payment for my storage (32€ every 4 weeks), which holds the last few valuables that still haven't been taken from me, will bounce and I might lose the last bit of what I have.

Everything I make, I release for free as a matter of principle, so if you have spare cash it'd be really nice if you could help out.

I can receive money via bank transfer (DM for IBAN) or get recurring donations via patreon:

Hey y'all on,
your instance sucks and some instances, including, will probably defederate from it soon.

I recommend you to look for a smaller, better moderated instance and move. If you don't know where to move, best check on which instances your mufos are.
Lmk if you have difficulties moving and I'll try to help.
If we are mufos I can issue you an invite for

If you follow too many people to manually go through them and know how to run a script from the cli, you can use this script to check where your friends are:

When you indent in using lists, and one of the items has a blockquote, you lose all the indentation after the first line-break.

This makes it impossible to neatly indent blocks of text with line-breaks in them.

There may be a way to fix this with CSS, but I don't know it.


i reckon we have a good 2-3 years before the world galvanizes around the need for a "new traditional" and the game is going to be showing how progressive ideals are actually part of traditional values that we forgot along the way.

Decency, respect for all humans and nature, helping your community, looking after the less fortunate, kindness, good health, close knit communities.

We have every confidence that the apparent economic disassembly is due to controlled reverse duality, and it has been determined that the apparent trade fallout is due to catastrophic technical empowerment.

Exhausted, overwhelmed and overworked people of the fediverse --
